The raging river from riverside

A travel blog entry by ahartry

Started with overcast today, followed by humidity and sun, followed by rain.

We were up earlier for brekkies than we have been ... and the dining room was nearly empty. What a difference 20 minutes makes. After eating, we popped in the car (top down) and headed back for Niagara Falls. We crossed this time at Rainbow Bridge ... a crossing …

Fort George, Gorgeous Falls, Disappointing Dilemma

Woke up at the crack of 9:30am, thanks to our alarm. The breakfast room was crowded, but we managed to get a table by the window. Good black currant jam with the crumpets. Nummy.

It was not as hot and humid as we had expected, but it was still warm without the breeze. We had no real plan when we left the hotel, just to walk up to town and …

Fabulous bike ride day!

We had new companions at breakfast – a couple from Illinois who were nice and chatty. They have been coming to the Shaw for almost 20 years and recommend the seminars. Might be interesting, but it does mean seeing a lot of theatre in a short period of time. As much as I'd like to learn more about Shaw and His Time, I’m not sure I want to see that many plays in a week.

After breakfast, we rented bikes. The weather was ...

In the beginning....there were Google Maps

... saying then, is that I have no idea what distance I will travel or how long it will take.
I'm assuming something close to the above approximate distance though, with an estimated time frame of 2-2.5 months. This is based on nothing scientific whatsoever, and doesn't allow for inclement weather, wind direction (I'm going against the ambient wind apparantly), hills/mountains, mechanical hitches, bears, cougars or just getting plain lost.


Here at last

A travel blog entry by mattahlia


I was extremely pleased when I was able to get off the plane, and away from the airport. But this in itself was no small feat; once landed we were advised that someone was sick on board the plane and paramedics first had to come onto the plane and see to the sick person. If they were deemed sick with something bad, then the whole flight would have to be quarantined. Luckily, we escaped that! Thank you sick person for not being ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Harbour House Hotel Niagara-on-the-Lake

    What a treat!


    Wow. Wow. Wow. From feather beds and fireplaces to jacuzzi baths and olde town charm, this is the height of hospitality AND value. I can't stress enough how much the staff did everything they could to help us. More importantly, I can't stress enough how much they succeeded. Thank you - rest assured that we will be back soon!

    Like my own private club


    My wife and I spent a wonderfully romantic evening at this new "boutique" hotel. Our room was spacious yet intimate. The bathroom was awesome and, of course, a fireplace is always welcome. It seemed as if we were in a private club. The fortunate thing for us is that we reside relatively close to Niagara on the Lake and can return as we wish. In terms of value, it is untouchable.

    Welcome Warmth


    We stayed at Harbour House late fall on a spare of the moment weekend getaway, we found an unexpected treasure that we now continue to enjoy when ever we can. The attention to detail in both the rooms and bathrooms is not match any where in the area. The staff have a welcoming warmth and frienly way of helping you with every detail of your stay. We have recommended Harbour House to many of our freinds and will continue to do so as each visit is as enjoyable as the last, even Dixie our dog is welcome which means we can get away a little more often. We thank Harbour House for thier commitment to quality in accomedation and service.

    A terrific combo


    As residents of Niagara-on-the-Lake, we were initially concerned about accommodating another hotel in our popular town. Our concerns proved to be unwarranted, however, as Harbour House represents what we strive to be for tourists and small conference goers alike - extremely attractive and comfortable, well located, initimate, reasonably priced, with a high service level. We are confident that guests will love using it as a base for their activities in the region.

    Just to be sure, we bunked in for a weekend before the tourist season started. The experience more than met our expectations!

    Even better than last time, if that is possible!!


    Just returned from another visit to Harbour House. This is without a doubt the best accommodation in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The breakfast is fabulous and I love the wine and cheese reception. Every staff member that you encounter is smiling and wanting to ensure that everything is perfect. No food & beverage service on site but the concierge makes reservations and we had a great meal at The Charles Inn.

    Harbour House wowed us


    We recently celebrated our 20th anniversary at Harbour House- and we couldn't have picked a better hotel. We've stayed in most of the hotels in Niagara on the Lake, but Harbour House just opened late last year and this was our first stay- we have never had better service anywhere- the friendliest staff, most service oriented- great rooms with jacuzzis and fireplace, great views of the harbour, and a fantastic breakfast. It was like staying in a private club- they arranged horse drawn carriage rides, made dinner reservations for us at The Charles, which was superb- took us to dinner and picked us up so we could enjoy our wine without worrying about driving. I forgot- the most comfortable bed ever!! great, great, great!!

    Absolutely Fabulous


    I'm a travel writer, and I stay at a lot of places good, bad, expensive, not expensive. This is simply one of the loveliest places I've ever stayed, and if you're a Yank, the rates are not terrible for the four-five star accomodations.Views of the harbor are soothing.

    Rooms decorated stylishly and not too fluffily..aka, no Victorian B&B trappings. Bathrooms, with huge jetted tubs and sophisticated gray slate floors, even have dimmers! The staff here really seems to take extra steps to ensure people have a good time, from pointing out their favorite wineries to making sure you get to the Shaw shows on time.

    Breakfast is elegant and tasty. Can't recommend this place enough.

    Loved the Town


    This is a beautiful hotel. The trappings are similar to what one would expect paying in the $300 plus room rates. The downfall has to be that there is absolutely no restaurant...and unless you received a room overlooking the Niagara River you're realy on the wrong side of the "tracks". Queen's Landing Inn, on the otherhand will be my next stay.

    The best thing to happen to Niagara-On-The-Lake


    We saw the advert in the Globe and decided to try it. Having stayed at the Oban Inn many times, we love the town. The Harbour House Hotel is a wonderful addition to the town. The hotel is small, the rooms are exremely comfortable and the staff couldn't be more friendly. We booked for two mid-week nights and received a free third night. Obviously the hotel offers great value and we will definitely return. Although I haven't atayed in all of the Niagara hotels, my bet is that Harbour House is the best in town. Don't hesitate to make a reservation. One warning, be aware of the service charge. We were quoted for a two day package plus taxes and service. I did not expect to pay 15% service on top of the entire bill. Still it was good value. We will return often.
