February is for Wine and Chocolate!

Wine and Chocolate!

February always makes me think about chocolate and what better way to indulge than with the perfect wine.  Every weekend in February, the Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake are celebrating this wonderful combination with The Days of Wine and Chocolate.  Enjoy pairings at over 20 wineries in Niagara-on-the-Lake.  Check out the decadent menu on their website. Surprisingly, many of the pairings are savoury rather than sweet. Passes are only $45/person and a designated driver pass is available.

It will be hard to get to all the wineries in a day, so why not make it a weekend getaway and stay at one of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s beautiful bed and breakfasts, inns or cottages.  Book your stay at Bookyourstay.ca today.

Insiders Tip: 

The passes are good for all weekends in February, so visit more than once!

Start the New Year in Niagara.

Welcome in the New Year!

Fort George National Historic Site

Learn and discover
Soldiers in redcoats fire muskets, clouding the air with black powder smoke. Fifers’ and Drummers’ tunes drift past blockhouses, a historic powder magazine and cannons on the lookout. Step straight from the genteel Victorian town of Niagara-on-the-Lake into the War of 1812 at Fort George, a military post that defended Upper Canada against American attacks. Experience that era by tasting food cooked 19th century-style over an open flame, then fire a musket yourself!

The Ultimate Christmas Village


 

Here’s how to plan

your getaway to Niagara-on-the-Lake this holiday season.

1.    The Annual Candle Light Stroll starts at dusk on Friday December 1st with everyone lighting a candle in front of the clock tower and walking the neighbouring streets singing Christmas Carols. Take time to admire all the homes decorated for Christmas.

2.    Looking for that special gift?  No problem.   Plan your weekend getaway to downtown Queen Street to shop local artisan one-of-a-kind gifts and treasures.  Still want shopping,  take a short drive to The Outlet Collection Mall for name brand items. After shopping head downtown to Queen Street for a relaxing dinner at one of our many restaurants and pubs.

3.     December 1st & 2nd make sure you have your tickets to the Annual Holiday House Tour,  featuring 6 professionally decorated homes. This is the 19th season for the Rotary which draws people from all over the province and parts of the USA.

4.     To help you get into the holiday spirit, The Shaw Theatre presents ‘A Christmas Carol’   from Nov. 15th to Dec. 23. Get your tickets on-line or at the box office.

5.    Niagara-on-the-Lake is home to some of the best wines and ice-wines in the country.  Wineries are open everyday except Christmas Day for sampling and tours.

  1. 6.    NOTL’s Santa Claus Parade is the largest parade in the region. Saturday Dec 9th the parade starts at 11am. Watch for marching bands from the province and the USA. Members of the Bed and Breakfast Association will be walking and handing out candy along  the route.

7.   Fort George is home to outdoor skating again this year (weather permitting).  If you forgot your skates, don’t worry they rent skates. Treat your family to some hot chocolate too.

8.   And if you still can’t find a gift for that very special person on your list, give them a gift card to demi’s place and let us  take good care of them.

When Ed and I made the decision to move to Niagara-on-the-Lake and open a bed & breakfast we had no idea how much we were going to love this life style. The fact that we can spend so much time with our family while running the b&b is just a bonus. When our kids or our grandkids are visiting they frequently come into the dining room to say “good morning” and meet our guests. We consider ourselves very fortunate that our guests love interacting with them too. 

Thank you to all the guests we met over this past year, it was our pleasure to have you stay at demi’s place and we hope you will choose to stay with us again.  

We will be closed for a short time over the holidays for some family time and open again in the new year. Please check our booking calendar for our 2018 availability.  

From our family to yours, have a safe and happy holiday,

Ed and Demi

 Niagara-on-the-Lake is world-renowned for its wine, for the Shaw Festival, and also its close proximity to the natural wonder Niagara Falls, but there’s more to do in Niagara than Taste Wine.

.

Coming to Niagara-on-the-Lake isn’t just for wine snobs and lovers of theatre. There are plenty of activities for the young-at-heart to get out and enjoy the fresh air and get some exercise as well.

Golfing, biking, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding (SUP) are also great activities to clear your head between wine tastings. Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) Get a different perspective of Lake Ontario and the Niagara River. Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is a combination of surfing and outrigger canoe paddling.

Paddle Niagara, http://www.paddleniagara.com/, offers sunset paddles and even SUP Yoga. Kayaking If you prefer something slightly more steady,

Niagara Kayak, http://www.niagarakayak.com, will meet you at the launch site of your choice and provide you with everything you need including a tutorial on safety and basic kayaking instructions. Cycling If you prefer a dryer activity, there are many bike paths through Niagara and along the Niagara River Parkway. There are even bike tours to the wineries. Bring your own or rent from

Zoom Leisure, http://www.zoomleisure.com, or

Grape Escape, https://www.tourniagarawineries.com/. Or you can even skip the pedaling with an electric bike from

eSkoot, http://www.eskoot.com. There’s even bicycles built for two available for rent.

Golf there are over a dozen golf courses in the Niagara region, including the oldest Golf Club in North America, Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club, established in 1875. With all this to see, you will want to stay a while.
