My husband and I booked 3 nights at the Applewood Hollow and what a very pleasant surprise. It was recommended by a co-worker and we expected nice but it far exceeded our expectations. It's a very picturesque property - lovely gardens and property that backs on to a creek. The loft bedroom, overlooking a charming sitting, living area on the main floor overlooking a private veranda and gardens is ideal. Each room lovingly decorated with attention to detail. I particularly liked the information researched and shared by the hosts of the inn location and the area. Historic info and pics enclosed in book form that gave it a real feel of mystery, history, art and romance!
What wonderful breakfasts. Each morning different. Homemade, local and delicious. Free range hens clucking about making an occasion appearance on the grounds announcing when an egg had been laid! Enough for 2nd's if you are hungry but varied and tasty to try a little of all to satisfy you. Really really good!
Finally, Jane our hostess couldn't be more helpful. Full of information, fun and friendly. Gave us much info for exploring. Very close to Niagara on the Lake and a wonderful drive along the river to Niagara falls. Great location.
We loved the privacy too. Our host there whenever required but not intruding. Would love to return for a week!
