I stayed at the Homestead 1867 for three nights whilst visiting the Hamilton area on business. And what a lovely place! I felt very at home and the bedroom and ensuite bathroom were immaculate. The only potential downside for some guests could be there wasn't a TV in the room, but I'm not sure if this was the case for... More

I appreciated the big closet and desk, the immaculately appointed new bathroom with... More

This is a great burger spot. Really if you are craving a burger..this is where you go. The appetizers are all so goood! If you are feeling really adventurous get the deep fried bacon. The milkshakes are perfect with a lot of inventive flavors. The burgers and chicken sandwiches are always good. Have one person order onion rings and other... More

My husband and I recently spent one evening at The Homestead 1867 and wished we could stay longer. We will surely be back. The home is gorgeous and completely immaculate. The rooms are all just beautifully decorated, and filled with lovely antiques. Lots of common space for the guests. We were the only people staying that evening and thus had... More

This place is just wonderful. The building and decor are historic (from 1867), tasteful, and beautiful. The host, Ton, is gracious and welcoming, and was able to give us anything we asked for with a smile. The rate was very reasonable, considering the quality of the place, and the delicious breakfast. Ton made us a great fruit salad, omelettes, fresh-squeezed... More

Stayed for one night after visiting Niagara Falls. Good location in small town not too far from freeway before Toronto. Lots of choice for breakfast (chocolate and strawberry crepe was lovely) with Nepresso coffee and tea available all day. Immaculate rooms and bathroom. Very charming little place.

Dundas is a darling town. We used this B&B as our base to tour the local waterfalls. This B&B is very clean and charming. The bathroom is shared (since we were two couples in the only two rooms in the B&B, that was no problem). The breakfast was wonderful, and the host charming and unobtrusive.

This small B&B is located in a peaceful residential area in Dundas, Ontario. It is a very beautiful and tastefully decorated small house, everything spick and span. It has only two guest rooms, each with a bathroom. The Dutch owner makes you feel at home instantly. Breakfast is nice, wireless and outside pool are available. You can find it on... More
