  • Breakfast

    Why did we want to open a B&B? Because we love breakfast, and we hope you do too! When you come downstairs after a restful night's sleep, your breakfast experience begins. You may choose to eat in our elegant dining room, or, weather permitting, we would be happy to serve you on the porch. Your breakfast includes our "day starter" cold breakfast bar as well as a hot entree which is available from 7:30 - 9:00 a.m. We know that tastes differ, and so prior to retiring the night before, you will be asked to choose between several hot entree options. And of course, limitless cups of the best coffee in town.

    Living in the fruit capital of Ontario, we use local fruits whenever possible. Sweet strawberries, flavourful raspberries and blueberries, succulent cherries, juicy peaches, tart apples...all are featured in our unique and diverse breakfast menus.

    Whatever your day has in store, our breakfast will prepare you for it. Come check out a Porch and Pillow legendary breakfast!

  • Local Attractions

    So much to do, so little time...

    The Niagara Region has something for everyone. In addition to festivals, wine tours, plays, golf courses, shopping, and more, the region's natural beauty appeals to the outdoorsperson in all of us.

    The Porch and Pillow is located only one kilometer from the Commons and the Niagara Recreation Trail. Walkers, runners, and cyclists will appreciate our proximity to world-class trails that can lead to Niagara Falls and beyond if desired. We are also in close proximity to many wineries that are easily accessed by bicycle or car.

    Love to cycle? Save yourself the hassle of packing your bikes and take advantage of our complimentary bicycles. We have two mountain bikes and a tandem bike for your use, and if you think you might need to carry a lot of wine back from the wineries, we also have a bike trailer that you could pull behind your bike. The tandem bike is a great way for couples to enjoy the great outdoors together without having to worry about differences in skill levels.

    If you wish to bring your own bicycles, we offer secure storage for bikes in our locked garage.
