What a wonderful find. My husband and I felt like we we're in Europe. The home is exquisite and our hosts Howie and Jolanta so charming. We especially enjoyed the breakfast and we will definitely be back next year.

We stayed for 3 nights at Historic Lyons House and it was a real highlight of our trip. Howard and Yolanta are great people, their home is beautifully furnished, with luxurious touches, spotlessly clean, and they make you very very welcome. It's like having a personal tour guide with you at breakfast each day. Nothing is too much trouble for them. Breakfast is definitely Howard's thing, every day it's deliciously different. They know about everything that is NOTL, and they'll check out the internet for you for prices, offers, etc. To anyone looking to stay in this beautiful area, stop reading reviews etc - BOOK THIS B+B.

Not only is it a truly beautiful property, but Yolanta and Howie were wonderful people. We felt like we were staying with friends. Did not expect all the extra perks: our own personal consierge service, free wine tasting tics, and fabulous breakfasts!

It is always nice to go somewhere where the 'locals' go and Yolanta and Howie gave us plenty of fantastic recommendations. We'll have to plan another trip because we didn't get time to do everything they suggested.

This B&B was fantastic! We stayed 2 wonderful nights. The owners (Jolanda & Howard)were very nice, and very helpful with planning our day. They even told us to call them if we had any problems. There was a very homelike atmosphere that made you feel as if you were visiting friends.. We missed our pets, so having theirs to pet made our trip a little easier. Breakfasts were amazing. Howard was a great chef ! Remembering the breakfasts will bring a smile to your face. They added personal touches for our convience in & near our rooms that added to our comfort. We could go on & on, but will end with, we can't wait to return & will be telling our friends & family that this is the place to stay in Niagara on the Lake.

After staying at Historic Lyons House for 10 days (yes, you read that correctly), we feel well-qualified to give the highest recommendation for this glorious B & B. The owners, Howard and Jolanta, listened to our interests and provided excellent insight into things to do, places to eat, and how to best enjoy the delightful town of Niagara-on-the Lake. What a friendly, welcoming couple! The commons areas and bedrooms were immaculate and tastefully appointed with historic furniture and beautiful (modern day) paintings. The central air worked well against the summer heat. Our room, Sir John, had a firm queen bed, a large, up-to-date ensuite bathroom, and a big HD flatscreen TV that we mainly used for its many music channels. In our room, we enjoyed reading in the sitting area which faced the fireplace. Breakfast, a highlight of our day, was served in the high-ceiling dining room. Delicious fresh fruit was always the first course, followed by a scrumptious entree that varied each day (amazing variety!). Howard and Jolanta did an incredible job accomodating our low-cholesterol needs, as well as taking care of other guests' dietary restrictions. All in all, HIstoric Lyons is a place not to be missed!
