“A Great Place to Stay While in Ontario, CA”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

Howe Island is really an island, reachable only via ferries. Also, it is very near Gananoque, Ontario, a delightful town on the St. Lawrence river (site of the "Cottage" river tours) and Kingston, a moderate sized city to the west. Now, as to the Howe Island B&B, don't miss it as Dave and Wendy, the owners have established a very pleasant, delightful establishment. Sitting right on the St. Lawrence, the view is extraordinary as are the varied gardens that accompany the B&B. My wife and I, celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary, spent two nights in the cottage on the property, as opposed to staying in the main lodge, The morning breakfasts were complete with interesting fare, the quality of the preparations being above par as was the service. Dave, in the short absence of Wendy, carried himself with confidence. acting as the host. The Howe Island B&B is special. Don't miss it when in Ontario, CA.

Outstanding venue for a wedding. Breathtaking scenery, and spectacular views. Dave & Wendy went above and beyond to make sure that every detail was looked after and treated us like family. Gorgeous setting for photos, and plenty of space for 150+ guests. Thank you for everything, we will treasure the memories made.

Howe Island is a paradise, located on the St Lawrence river. The hosts Wendy and David Jones make you feel like part of the family from pick up to drop off. The property is lovely with grape vines, lush green grass and river frontage there is always something to see or do, we had our five year old daughter with us and she felt that she was in a fairytale lots of animals and exploring to do, and the breakfasts are amazing. We stayed in Lawton lodge a two bedroom cabin that had a lovely aspect of the river and comfortable accommodation. Absolutely loved it even contemplated relocating to this touch of paradise.

Lovely spot, lovely accommodation, lovely food, lovely hosts. A prefect stop off point for us as we made out way to Montreal. Unfortunately we were only here for one night but we made the most of it and got out and about in the car and had a good look around the Island and the nearby mainland. I think there would be plenty to keep you busy here for a week or so if outdoor activities were your thing!

* what a lovely surprise to receive a card from Dave and Wendy with us standing in the vineyard. A perfect reminder of our trip to Howe Island!

The bar has been set pretty high on this one . Dave and Wendy are simply amazing hosts.
If you're looking for quiet and serene , then look no further .
Breakfast is spectacular.....all homemade goodness.
The " GAN " as they call it , is only minutes away on the " Scary Ferry " .
But , truth be told......we didn't want to leave to go and get supper......this place is just that peaceful .
Ellie and I will be returning......no doubt in our minds......

Our stay at the Howe Is. B andB was a gift from one of our sons and unfortunately I did not research the place ahead of time, so we were ill prepared. The property and surroundings are perfect for biking, kayaking, swimming, etc., and we brought none of these things. Wendy and Dave are wonderful hosts and we felt like family after 2 nights stay. The breakfasts are fabulous and the scenery/grounds are beautiful. It is a great place to stay. Fred & Linda

After a short ferry ride to the island, we arrived at Howe Island Winery B&B only to be greeted by our hosts, the enthusiastic Canadian/Aussie David and his lovely wife Wendy. Immediately, we knew we had made the right choice to stay at this B&B. David and Wendy were the most gracious hosts and made our family feel at home. Lawton Lodge was reminiscent of staying at a charming lake house but as David frequently emphasized the B&B is on a river. We enjoyed breathtaking views of the St. Lawrence from the dock, the hammock and the adirondack chairs on the lawn. The grounds and gardens were immaculate. Wendy's breakfasts and David's culinary morning fruit were outstanding and kept us going well into the afternoon. To really appreciate the beauty and charm of Howe Island Winery B&B, arrive early to enjoy a sunset and stay more than one night. We thoroughly enjoyed David and Wendy's Southern 'Howe'spitality and would highly recommend a stay here. We are already planning to return. Thanks for the unforgettable visit ~Brett and Debbie K.
