A private room in our rustic 18th Century Farmhouse is across from beautiful Black Creek, steps from the Niagara River. Come relax on our charming porch or on our dock/deck overlooking Black Creek.
Our private room has a separate entrance with a queen bed & separate kitchen. You may put your food in the fridge, make yourself tea/coffee. I love to bake so there will always be something home baked as part of a continental breakfast. The bathroom for your use is just off the private room and has a claw-foot tub & shower.
There is a tv in the room that can be used to watch a small selection of DVD's (it doesn't get channels).
We have one kitty, Puss, & a very friendly large dog Nick.
Free Wi-Fi. Free parking.
We have bikes (not perfect or professional) but you are welcome to borrow them - the Niagara River Recreation Trail is some 58 km that runs from Niagara on the Lake to Ft Erie & is home to over 100 plaques and monuments. It is gorgeous! You are also welcome to borrow our canoe (also not perfect but it works) and paddle up beautiful Black Creek. Winter weather permitting we have two pairs of cross country skiis & boots you may borrow to ski just out the door & up the Niagara River Parkway. It's absolutely beautiful in the winter!
No need to pack wine glasses or an opener. We have lots. Towels, sheets, pillows & blankets are also provided.
There is a boat launch just around the corner on the Niagara River.
We are within a 1/2 hr drive to over 70 wineries in Niagara (Both in Niagara-on-the-Lake & the Beamsville Bench).
15 minutes to the famous & amazing Niagara Falls where there is lots to do (Maid of the Mist is my favorite).
1/2 hour drive to the Galleria Mall just over the border (don't forget your passport!)
1/2 hour drive to the Niagara Falls USA Outlet Mall.
Absolutely No Smoking in the house.
If the dog is on the porch, try not to let him off. The cat however, can do as she pleases!
Warm greeting and chat with us about things to do in the area and showing the room/living area. Checked in with us at night to see how we were, gave us brownies.
Mark & Kelly made us feel very welcome. They had all kinds of special personal touches that left us pleasantly surprised. The add is as described and the neighbour hood is lovely and quiet. They have a beautiful creek across the street and they were kind enough to take us for a dock ride. We loved it! Mark & Kelly make this place the gem that it is :)

We cannot say enough about how welcome Kelly and Mark made us feel. They both went above and beyond to assist us in so many ways. There were so many special little touches that meant so much. Lots of yummy goodies too! They offered their home and amenities as if we were old friends.
Not only were they responsive to requests for information and assistance before our arrival, but throughout our stay as well. They provided a list of a variety of restaurants and wineries from which we could choose, maps, local information brochures, and tips for our visit.
The location was lovely and quiet with a view of the creek across the road and the Niagara River just up the street, yet was a reasonable distance and beautiful drive to Niagara Falls. It was very convenient having our own entrance and the accommodations were very comfortable.
My husband was very resistant to the idea of Airbnb but is now a convert because of this lovely couple. We are already planning our return trip.
Thank you Kelly and Mark for a wonderful visit and a very memorable wedding anniversary. We are recommending you to family and friends!
It was a pleasure to meet such wonderful people as Kelly and Mark! They are so kind, welcoming and interesting. Their house is beautiful and clean and our room was perfect for a couple. They invited us to spend some time together and we had great conversations. The breakfast was really delicious - selfmade omelettes, muffins and scones.
We would definitely recommend this place and would love to come back.
Before the date of my stay, I exchanged e-mails with Kelly and Mark. Through this process, I became acquainted with them to a certain degree. This helped me feel comfortable when I arrived, as neither of my hosts was able to meet me at the house at the time of my arrival .
Upon arrival, I was easily able to access my entrance, room, and bathroom. We exchanged notes concerning breakfast, and we enjoyed a nice chat in the morning. My stay was short, but pleasant.
Kelly and Mark were great hosts! They were very welcoming and helpful with making plans. Their home is across from a beautiful creek in a tranquil setting. Walking distance to the Niagara Parkway which is very nice for a bike ride. The Niagara Falls is less than 10 minutes away. Breakfast was very good with homemade items! Their dog, Nick, is very friendly and cute.
Best restaurants: Creekside and Good Earth. (Great food and views) and Stoneroad Grille
Best Wineries: Organized Crime Winery, Kacaba, Creekside Estate, Rosewood Estates, Megalomaniac
A very pleasant and well located house. Easy to visit Niagara falls, Niagara on the lake or wineries.
Kelly and Mark are perfect hosts, friendly and generous.
A great memory in our travel
Mark is a Chef. I work with kids, love to bake.
5 things we can't live without: Our kids! WINE! Our home & the creek. Great simple food. Friends & family. Music. Oops...I think that's more than 5.
We look forward to sharing our beautiful property & the Black Creek/Niagara River Area & getting to know/meet new people!
