“YAWWIE!: Yet Another Wonderful Weatherpine Inn Experience!”
Reviewed 28 May 2011

This is our second visit to Weatherpine, but we've met the hosts over the years because they also work at various functions such as the progressive dinners, wine events, and Shaw Festival events. They makes them great sources of reliable information.

Doug and Phyllis are great hosts, food is excellent and home-made, great amenities, blah blah blah. It's all been said before. Other reviews described it accurately, but the reviewers have left out important details that are totally unrelated to the usual B&B frou-frou stuff.

The main house has four rooms, but we really like the garden room that's adjacent. You can drive your car right up to its door. Knee problems are a non-issue, Once in the room, another door opens onto your own private garden area with deck table and chairs. They have Wi-Fi, but I didn't check to see if it worked in the garden. The bathroom has a combination shower and steam room. After a hard day at the Shaw Festival, the ladies can read a newspaper and sip tea or coffee outside amid the flowers, while you can recline in your own steam room, slug back a complimentary Diet Coke from the fridge, and think about nothing. It's like having your own man-cave.

Weatherpine is right across the street from the Pillar and Post. You can get a day pass to use their fitness and spa facilities. That's really handy. The location is also good for going to the theatres. We borrowed a couple of Doug's bikes and cycled down the street to the Courthouse Theatre to catch a matinée of Drama at Inish. Not only did we save six bucks for parking, but we got out of the parking lot before anybody else. That counts for a lot.

Doug does a lot of his own B&B maintenance, including restoring his 1952 MG TD. It caught my eye as I got the bikes out of the shed. That car is a beauty to behold. These cars were from the golden age of motoring, before British-Leyland plunged cars into the dark ages. Ok, so guests can't actually drive the MG, but it's really neat to check out. I was also pleased to see some articles and objects related to Doug's long-time military service, including his recent time in Afghanistan. These were very tastefully displayed on the dining room piano.

Important update: when we left on Friday morning, the flower pots had all been hung along the balcony. Not a big deal for me, but my wife really love it. Also, special mention goes to the delicious Eggs Benedict prepared on the morning of our departure. In short, you'll sleep well, eat well, and have opportunities for relaxation. We will be back.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the WeatherPine for two nights over the may long weekend... it was amazing. Either one of us had ever stayed at a B&B before and it was the best experience! (way better than a hotel) The owners are very pleasant people that make you feel at home as soon as you walk in the door. Breakfast was some of the best we've ever had. I would recommend The WeatherPine Inn to anyone! I know we will definitely be making a return in the future.

My sisters and I chose the WeatherPine Inn because of its convenient location to the Pillar and Post Inn where we were attending a wedding. The weather was rainy but the hosts were so warm and accommodating that we barely noticed! Rooms are lovely and the breakfast was superb. We really enjoyed sharing conversation at breakfast and also the convenient location. We would all love to go back during the summer when we could have more time to visit wineries and shop -- and we highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast.

The host of this charming B&B made us feel so welcome. The room we had was charming, with nice style of decorating. There were convenient amenities beyond other B&B, such as a fridge. The king bed was deliciously comfortable. A separate entrance leads to a second floor veranda that has tables and chairs for relaxing outside and captures the late afternoon sun in October. It was warm enough to knit outside! Breakfasts were hot and delicious.

What can I say about The WeatherPine Inn. Not enough. Everything about this beautiful B&B is perfection. From the moment you arrive, you feel at home. Its perfect little setting and gorgeous decor. Our hosts, Phyllis and Doug are wonderful and so friendly. The breakfasts have to be the best part, they are so delicious, from Homemade Belgian Waffles to Broccoli and Cheese Quiches. Amazing meals. It is definitely one of my favourite places. My home away from home. It will always be my first place to stay.

Once again, I and my daughters spent a delightful weekend in Niagara-on-the Lake, attending the theatre, visiting points of interest in that historic area, and of course taking in a few of the many tours of the wineries.

As we have done for several years, we stayed at Weatherpine Inn, a charming B & B which satisfies our wishes on all levels: the accommodation is tasteful, spacious, scrupulously clean, with a well-stocked fridge in each room and a generous supply of tea and coffee to be brewed as the spirit moves us.

Breakfast is served daily to all guests in the diningroom at a large oval table, where, to our delight, we often find some of the guests we met at the Inn in recent years.Conversation around the table is always lively and interesting, with members sharing information on plays and tour trips to various sites and other topics.

Above all the breakfast served to the guests each day is created specifically for that day with love, amazing creativity and culinary expertise by Phyllis Johnson, co-owner if Weatherpine Inn with her husband Doug. No wonder there are so many appreciative comments around the table as guests explore the texture and flavour of Phyllis's immensely satisfying creations.

Phyllis and Doug ensure that guests are fully informed about the many special events taking place in Niagara-on-the-Lake during their stay and also about other events taking place throughout the year. Their commitment to the happiness and satisfaction of their guests is truly heart-warming.....no wonder so many of their guests return to Weatherpine Inn year after year.

My daughters and I unreservedly recommend Weatherpine Inn to visitors seeking a delightful place to stay while they explore the charms of Niagara-on-the Lake.
