Over the many years of being a Bed&Breakfast, we have been privileged to have had many wonderful guests who have stayed here with us. A traditional Bed & Breakfast requires owners and operators to live on the property, in Ontario. We are allowed three guest rooms, anything over that is considered to be an inn. Unlike AirBnB, whose main focus is as a rental agency, their very name plagiarizes the traditional Bed & Breakfast concept. Our focus, as a traditional Bed & Breakfast, is first and foremost towards accommodating our guests needs and in facilitating their stay with us. Having direct contact via email or telephone with prospective guests allows for more personal contact with guests before they arrive at our home and they, with us. Thus, as a traditional Bed & Breakfast, we are not part of any rental agency. It is important for prospective guests to know the difference as to what they are getting and what they may walk into having gone through a rental accommodation agency.
We are happy to accept one night bookings as we feel that many times, one night is all people are looking for when coming into our area. Our guests are welcome to bring food and drinks with them and we provide a refrigerator downstairs for guest use but we ask that no food and drinks be taken to our bedrooms other than water, due to previous experiences we’ve had with damage issues. If you book all three rooms and find there is a change in your plans, we will already have turned people away for those rooms so we would appreciate regardless of any last minute changes that you honour your commitment to us as we do for your reservations here. As we have been asked, we do not allow three people in one room, with the exception of babies sleeping in a Pack n’Play, which we provide for such guests.

What is a Traditional Bed&Breakfast and what is FOBBA?: If you wish to understand what a traditional Bed & Breakfast is all about, consider reading this link to FOBBA, the Federation of Ontario Bed & Breakfasts Association: https://www.fobba.com/index.cfm?page=ethics. Any booking agency does not have such governance nor any code of ethics by which to follow. Booking in through an agency, you are not always sure of what you are walking into with your reservations as you will with a traditional B&B. Air BnB is simply a rental agency, from one empty room to an empty house and including some B&B’s who have chosen to go along with the concept of supporting a rental agency which has no authority or control over those who rent out under their agency.
Please note: We support printed paper advertising. Please see the Niagara Escarpment Views (http://www.neviews.ca/) We have free copies of this wonderful magazine for our B&B guests .
