Demi and Ed,
HUSBAND & WIFE PARTNERS of 44yrs,
''Having the time of our life, il tempo della nostra vita,' once we decided to open a B&B''
Like many families, when the kids go off to university and move away from home, you slowly find yourselves contemplating the next stage of your life. My husband Ed and I were in that same position a few years ago. I was working part-time in a medical office and Ed was finishing up a 10 yr contract with Education in the Automotive Industry. The question became how could we achieve quality time together, own our own business, afford to travel more and still be close by to watch our grand-kids as they grow up. After some soul searching the possibility was in operating a bed & breakfast.
As your hosts, let us make every effort to exceed your expectations at the exact pace your desire. When you are our guests, feel free to relax after a busy day in NOTL in our backyard gazebo with a glass of wine, or enjoy the outdoor hot tub, and enjoy the quiet gardens.
Niagara is a great destination
For years, Ed and I had traveled to the Niagara Region and knew how it was a great getaway for friends and family. The historical and picturesque town of Niagara-on-the-lake became our focus as the right location to open a bed & breakfast. We carefully searched the real estate market, met with a agent, took a course on business management and started to learn all about operating a b&b. We looked for properties that would appeal to guests and also something we could call home especially when we had the whole family together. Taking a year to decide on the right property, we finally sold our home in Toronto, said goodbye to the old neighborhood and moved to Niagara-on-the-Lake (NOTL) as the locals call it. We quickly settled into the next chapter of our lives.

Enjoy the wineries that surround us, by leaving the drive to a professional tour operator, they will pick you up and dropping you off right at our door. You might want to rent some bikes and explore the many bike trails Niagara has to offer. Then spend a relaxing afternoon popping in and out of the one-of-a-kind shops, sit at one of the many outdoor patios for lunch/dinner and relax with a glass of wine and watch the traffic go by. Visit The Shaw Festival which opens from April to October, and if you don’t already have tickets, drop by their box office and inquire about one of 10 plays in 3 theatres.
