Very good experience. Was upgraded to a bigger suit free of charge. Everyone was very friendly and polite. The house was maintained very well. I really enjoyed the breakfast in the morning delicious and felt pampered in the morning with the amazing service.

This was perhaps our third or fourth visit. Each one has met or exceeded expectations. Great breakfasts, warm hospitality and fine rooms .The location is close but not too close to the "action" of the community. Prices are not low however of good value for the area

My husband and I stayed overnight at the Explorer House for a winter getaway for my birthday in January 2017. We had the most wonderful experience at this beautifully decorated, warmly hosted home at Niagara on the Lake. Deanna and Alek were the most gracious and welcoming couple and we loved hearing about their many world adventures which they have...

Deanna & Alec Bishop are fabulous hosts! Rooms are all king size bed's with en suite (jetted tub and showers in each room). There's also a kitchenette (stocked daily with snacks) and a little game/reading room for the guest to use. Guest hot tub in the backyard ( bathrobes provided in the room ). Love the eggs Benedict for breakfast...

I do not have a single negative thing to say about Explorer House. Top notch accommodations, grounds and food- well beyond our expectations. I loved the private common area equipped with coffee, water and snacks. The hosts were not only knowledgeable but also lovely. We would return in a heartbeat!!

This was our 2nd time at Explorer house and I cannot recommend it enough. Alec and Deanna are great hosts and cooks. Rooms are comfortable and well decorated. Make sure to ask for recommendations for winery's in the area as Deanna has free (advise) tasting passes to most of them. Go stay there !!! you won't regret it.

Stay Here! The home is beautiful, with each of the three suites representing one of the exotic countries our hosts Deanna and Alec visited. Hosts were accommodating, warm, informative, genuine, and struck the perfect balance between being available and allowing us to feel the home was completely ours for our stay. Keurig coffeemaker, basket of snacks, and refrigerator with complimentary...

Such a relaxing time, great food and awesome hosts. This is our second time and will be back again for sure. The room was spotless and the gardens are so beautiful. Niagara-on-the-Lake downtown is a nice stroll down the street with lots to do. A great place to stay, relax and unwind.

Right from the start we felt welcome. After making my booking I was contacted and confirmed, I was asked to identify any specific food issues regarding the breakfast meal. That's a first! It is perfectly located outside of the main hustle and bustle of NOTL in a quiet neighbourhood. The rooms were personally decorated, each with its own theme and...

A beautifully appointed B&B and an amazing outdoor area with fire pit, Jacuzzi and beautiful gardens. Deanne's "National Geographic quality photography" throughout the home made you feel like you were on an adventure. The breakfast table décor depicted a different country each morning and included delicious 3 course breakfast. Suggestion when you book a room: Book directly thru the B&B....
