Welcome to Explorer House, a boutique global styled bed & breakfast in historic Niagara-on-the-Lake. This modern, elegantly appointed home has been built specifically to address the needs of Bed & Breakfast guests. Each of our extra-large suites has a king size bed, fireplace, sitting area, private balcony, and an en-suite bathroom with a separate jetted tub & shower. Outside guest space includes a hot tub, fire pit table, gazebo and a very comfortable sitting area.
Explorer House reflects the owner's passion for travel and offers an opportunity to explore and experience Niagara while staying within an environment of pampered luxury.
Just 1.3 km (a slow 20 minute walk) from the Niagara-on-the-Lake clock tower and shopping, our B&B offers an escape from your everyday stresses. We have an adult-oriented, smoke free environment with beautifully appointed suites inspired by various continents across the globe. All of the suites are extra-large, and have hardwood floors, private balconies, jetted tubs, separate showers, gas fireplaces and sitting areas. Each suite is air conditioned and comes complete with a king size bed with fine linens and bedding, a 42" flat screen television with multiple satellite channels, a Blu-Ray player, a Bluetooth/Wireless Speaker/Clock Radio, adjustable mood lighting, an iron and ironing board, wireless internet, luxurious bathrobes and luxury bath products.
We also include free parking, complementary snacks, water, pop, gourmet tea & coffee from around the globe, daily room servicing, a selection of board games and a Blu-Ray/DVD and CD library. Guests can also relax and enjoy the guest lounge area and the beautiful backyard garden, hot tub, fire pit table and gazebo. The guest lounge area has a mini fridge, coffee maker and a full selection of glassware.
Travelling as a group? There is a large communal balcony, a sitting room and kitchenette all on the 2nd floor of our home and all available exclusively to our guests 24 hours a day. You could also wander out to the garden and sit in the gazebo or by the fire pit table to enjoy a book or a bottle of wine or perhaps a soak in the hot tub.
We are thrilled to be able to open our home to guests from all over the world and we look forward to meeting you!
We do not accept guests under the age of 16 and our rooms are set-up for a maximum of 2 people.
We regret that we cannot accept pets but Cleo, Darwin & Drake, our resident cats (whom are not allowed in guest suites or in any other guest areas) are happy to recommend a local boarding kennel to visiting furry friends, if needed.
A two night minimum stay is required during Peak Season (May to October) and a two night minimum stay is required on weekends during low season. Please note, in those cases where there is only a single night available, we are happy to take single nights.
Thank you for your understanding, Deanna & Alec
