    Located in a quiet rural residential neighborhood in the heart of Niagara's wine country, A Li'l Bit of Eden Bed and Breakfast, offers a taste of Niagara in every way.
    From this central location, our guests are a short drive from hundreds of area attractions.

    - Within a 15-minute walk are Trius Estate Winery and Restaurant, Gretzky Winery/Distillery/Brewery, 7 restaurants, several antique shops.
    - It is only minutes to the Virgil bike path and an easy 5 km on country roads to the Niagara River recreational trail or the Welland Canal Seaway Trail. There are several e-bike and bicycle rental shops nearby.
    - Within a 25-minute radius by car, you can experience local cottage wineries, historic Old Town Niagara-on-the-Lake, the impressive Welland Canal and Niagara Falls with all the attractions it has to offer.
    Be sure to leave time to enjoy all that our property has to offer
    - Curl up with a book by one of our ponds or gardens.
    - In the Common Room, catch some TV or exercise your competitive side with a board game or at the pool table.
    - Enjoy the pool and hot tub (the outdoor hot tub is open in most weather conditions, all year).
    - Wander out to our back garden to nibble on some fresh, sustainably grown produce. Last year we grew a sampling of over 60 different fruits, berries, vegetables and herbs. (Forget the 100 mile diet – we’re trying for the 100 meter diet!)
    We (your hosts, Rudy & Brenda Kuijer) have developed the property for our own enjoyment over a period of over 40 years. We now would be honored to share it and the entire Niagara experience with you, our guest.
