Shed Those Mid-Winter Blahs

It’s been a cold, harsh winter by all measurements. Isn’t it time you took a break from the city life, chaos and grime to enjoy the peaceful surroundings of Niagara-on-the-Lake? Book a cozy weekend at your favourite B&B where privacy, peace and quiet, and a taste of the local lifestyle are just a few of the reasons to stay. Oh, and of course, there’s that delicious spread first thing in the morning—lovingly prepared and served by your hosts.


Out and about

And if you do choose to head out during your stay, there’s plenty going on to keep you entertained and out of the cold. Check these out:
