Bonnybank B&B - Night Owl Room

Bed & Breakfast - Private room · St, Jordan Station, 1 L0R 1S0, Canada

The Space

You have the choice in this room of having a king bed or 2 twin beds.

You can stargaze from your pillows and see the Baltimore oriole's nest swinging from a branch of the old silver maple outside your window.

The view looks south towards the Twenty Valley and the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Bruce Trail, Canada's longest and oldest continuous footpath runs along the edge of the escarpment. I am willing to drive hikers to the start of their hike so that they can hike to their car and drive back at the end of the day.

We have 2 more bedrooms that will accommodate 5 more people. The Escarpment Room and the Red Squirrel Room.

We are on the Twenty Mile Creek and there is a bike, canoe, kayak and even a dragon boat rental shop just down the road by the strawberry farm. You could paddle to Harbour Estates Winery that has a dock at the bottom of their property, with wooden carvings to guide you along the path to their winery!

There are different bike routes and bike maps to take you through the countryside visiting wineries and parks. And the Greater Niagara Circle Route and the Welland Canal Parkway allow you to bike away from traffic.

We are only 20 minutes away from Niagara Falls and a stunning hike in the Niagara Glen. This is where Niagara Falls fell 8,000 years ago before it continued on its path of eroding the gorge. Imagine flipping a switch that shut off the falls, and then waving a magic wand to add trees, ferns, wildflowers to the dramatic landscape. You can hike through the ancient plunge pools and see potholes and discover ant lions, tulip trees and rare ferns such as the walking fern. I own a company called Niagara Nature, Wine & Garden Tours so could guide you if you wanted a naturalist along!

  • Carla, thanks for your kind hospitality!

    October 2013
  • I spent 9 magical days in Bonnybank with Carla and I would go back in a hearbeat. The Night Owl room was spacious and comfortable and ideal for any couple.
    Bonnybank is perfectly located in between all the best Niagra Vineyards and is perfect for those how want to do some walking or hiking (Carla's ecotourism company offers great wine tours and guided nature hikes).
    As a food lover, I would rate the breakfast one of the best I have ever had. We had a selection of local fruit (peaches, strawberrys, blue berries), maple syrup, organic oats, to local eggs, mushrooms, spring onions and very tasty sausages-you are set up for the day. You will see your local chipmunks and birds eat from the bird feeder right beside the dinning room window each morning-wonderful.
    Cala is a very welcoming, warm and generous host. She is flexible and I would recommend guests to take her advice on local activities, and use her company for tours and guides..
    Myself and my partner Ann got engaged in the Twenty Mile Creek( with alot of help from Carla) and we will be back in Bonnybank as soon as we can-we left a bit of our heart in Bonnybank.
