Property Description

  • General Description

    The Bed and Breakfast at Old Ivy Walk is brilliantly located at 28 Prideaux Street in the Heritage District and just steps from the theatres, shops and restaurants. This designated Historic Home ca 1817 offers signature accommodations with all 21st century amenities.

    The house is listed on the Historic Walking Tour map (page 35, #6) of the Niagara-on-the-Lake Official Tourist Guide.

    The convenience of off-street parking in our carriage house courtyard is complimented with the peaceful seclusion of our fenced and walled garden. We are a brief block away from picturesque Queen's Royal Park and Lake Ontario. Once parked, there is little need to use your car.

    The timeless clip clop of horses' hooves as carriages pass by and the carillon of old church bells are the only reminders that you are staying in the centre of Old Town Niagara-on-the-Lake.

  • Breakfast

    "Dinner parties are mere formalities, but you invite a person for breakfast because you want to see them." Thomas Babington, 1st Lord Macaulay, 1817

    The Breakfast Room is at the front of the house which sits high on an ivy wall. Enjoy soft jazz or classical music from our own music library, crisp cotton napkins with fine tableware, and an open fire on cool mornings.

    The four individual tables in the breakfast room can be configured to sit from two to eight guests.

    Breakfast is prepared each morning in our kitchen and begins with juice accompanied with fresh fruit or perhaps a morning salad of melon dressed with honey and celery seed. We bake daily and accompanying home made entrees change each day such as our signature "Eggs in the Basket", Quiche Lorraine, Mushroom Stuffed Crepes or Perogis stuffed with cheese and served with bacon, sour cream and green onion.
