Checked out... only 200m to compose myself and CJ to stop berating me about being so far to the right in the lane... at least now I manage to keep between the lines... well most of the time...
Then it was 'cannon ball run' time again...
But it was all straight expressway... I even ventured into the middle lane and stopped hugging the R kerb …
... of all the world's problems. Alex and Kellie both got motion sickness so we made out way back to the hotel and had a bit of a nap.
The evening consisted of meeting up with Jenny's friends for drinks and dinner. We had a few drinks at the first bar then decided that it wasn't cold enough inside so we stepped out into the cold and walked to another bar. It was bitter outside, almost unbearable in our clothes so we called it a night and we were all in bed by ...
... coloured lights illuminated the water. The presence of so many casinos and the obvious focus on parting you from your cash at every turn however did detract from the whole experience and it was a shame that the falls weren't within a more protected and natural environment.
We made it back in plenty of time for the night bus to Montreal and waved a sad goodbye to Toronto. If this was how week 1 would be I couldn't wait to see what week 2 had in store!
As I mentioned, I was lucky enough that mine and Squeeky's timetables clashed and we got to meet up on my last two days of my North American leg and the first two days of his. Crazy! He had already been there a day by the time I'd arrived which was weirdly bizarre as he'd already made friends and it was really weird watching him interact in a hostel ...

Never before having stayed in a B&B we were a bit dubious about moving away from our norm of hotels
having driven in heavy traffic from Toronto we were tired but were revived by our reception
We arrived there at about 13:30 and were greeted by our host Meheroo... Wonderful lady who could not have been more helpful. Maps, advice on things to see and do. all for the asking..
The home is in a beautifully quiet part of the town of Niagara-on-the-lake while only being 10 minutes walk to the center of town. Which is the main point of interest for Niagara on the lake.
fter all our rushing around recently it was soo good to be in a serene tranquil environment.
Meheroo has decorated her home in a period style but still providing a relaxed and comfortable ambiance where one feels relaxed and at home.

Historical Traveler Reviews John'S Gate Gourmet Bed And Breakfast Niagara-on-the-Lake
Hospitality, wonderful food, and exquisite comfort second to none!
Have stayed in many B&B'S in Europe but none in North America. We were not disappointed. This was our anniversary. Meheroo, our hostess who attends to every detail of this meticulous home, even supplied champagne and orange juice for a toast at breakfast. She booked dinners for both nights. I don't know if it was her doing, but we got a prime table, in front of the fireplace at Peller Estates for the Saturday night. Location is excellent. The breakfasts were wonderful. My husband would have preferred bacon and eggs, but I disagree. All in all, it was a memorable anniversary at JOHN'S GATE and we hope to return.
Fantastic! Highly Recommended!
My wife and I had a truly pleasurable Anniversary, whilst staying at this comfortable, immaculate and tastefully decorated B & B. Our hostess sent us on our way the next day fortified with a hearty breakfast which was cooked to perfection. To add a foot-note, Sue our carriage driver was excellent as well, a carriage ride is a must do for visitors to Niagara-on-the-Lake!
John's Gate is a terrific place for a getaway. It is very clean, as well as warm and inviting. Our hostess cooked a delicious selection of food for breakfast and entertained us with her stories and jokes. I would highly recommend John's Gate!
More than a home from home
We stayed at this lovely B & B in September 2002 and were made very welcome. The food was great and plenty of - which for a Scotsman is a very important thing. Our hosts invited us to use the lounge at any time we wished, we could even bring home a bottle of wine which they would open for us. Extremely comfortable and welcoming surroundings. So good we have booked up for this November for a second visit.
Best B&B in Niagara-on-the-lake
We recently stayed at the John's Gate B&B (7/25-7/27/03) and are writing you to say how much we enjoyed our stay. We were pampered and served the most outstanding breakfasts you could have ever dreamed of receiving. The service was exceptional. The accommodations are attractive, scrupulously clean and the extra touches to make us feel especially cared for were wonderful. We have stayed at many B&B's and we rate John's Gate as second to none. We do recommend it to our friends and acquaintances. We hope you will pass along our review of John's Gate to anyone looking for the BEST B&B in Niagara-on-the-Lake.Sincerely, Jackie and Earl Wolf
Short get away
We went to Niagara on the Lake for a quiet escape and found it at John's Gate. The house was inviting and immaculate. There were fresh flowers in our room as promised and a wonderful breakfast was served on beautiful plates. Coffee was available for early risers. Meheroo made reservations for us at a lovely inn for dinner and offered us a coupon for a small discount on our meal. The whole experience was delightful and Niagara on the Lake is a must see.
A Comfortable Place To Stay
Nice Clean Place, Great Food & Hostess. The only negative was the no shoes upstairs rule, that got old quick. Has some great package deals that include activities in the area, these packages are an awesome value.
Johnsgate Bed & Breakfast was so great we extended our stay in the Niagara-On-the-Lake area.Our host went out of her way to give us an exceptional service.The property itself was impeccable! Extremely comfortable and clean. The food quality was exceptional....very good breakfast.Recommended highly....
Well worth visiting
This was our first experience with a Bed and Breakfast. Our hostess was fantastic. She made our stay both comfortable and welcoming. Meheroo attended to every detail which would make guests feel welcome and appreciated. The breakfasts were unsurpassed, and our rooms immaculate. one could not expect mare from a hostess. To end, we will definately reserve a room at Jonsgate when we visit Niagara On the Lake in the fiture. Thank you Meheroo.
