A friend and I stayed here Aug 5 and 6. We had a mini-suite in the adjoining house - coffee maker, fridge, and microwave, living room, bath and two beds. It was perfect. No steps for us to climb (in our 60s and 70s), very clean, close to River Road and the falls and the best breakfast at Ellis House I've had in years of traveling.

After an 8 hour drive, to fall into those comfortable beds was wonderful. There was travel information in the suite and next door.

Ellis House is a 'don't miss' if you are staying on the Canadian side of the falls .....thank you Vindhya for sharing your house(s).

Room tip: There are rooms in the main house and more next door. Any or all of them would be great - pick your amenities.

My husband and I decided to take a trip to Niagara Falls but didn't want to stay right in the Falls area. We were open to a B&B since our room had A/C, a private bathroom, free parking and the time for breakfast was flexible (a hot breakfast was served from 8-10 with coffee, tea, pastries and fruit available starting at 7:30). Also, if you're from the U.S., Ellis House was close enough to NY to pick up both AT&T and Verizon cell service in our room (The Retreat) and in the main house. From the moment we arrived, our hostess Vindya was friendly, accommodating and informative. Check in was easy and she helped us get the lay of the land so that we could take advantage of the local attractions. Our room was clean, comfortable and we had everything we needed. Breakfast was really good and we enjoyed talking to other guests while dining. We walked to the Falls one day (maybe about 1.5 miles downhill to the Falls) and rode the WeGo bus the other days. Something we didn't realize on our first day riding the bus is that the first pick up isn't until a little after 10 AM. So if you want to ride the bus, be sure to take that into consideration when scheduling activities. The stop is about 4 blocks away from Ellis House and we felt safe walking from the bus stop to the B&B late at night. With the Adventure Pass, which is available at the Welcome Centers, the bus is free for 48 hours from the first time it's scanned on a bus. We definitely recommend taking advantage of that since parking is really expensive near the Falls and the buses run every ten minutes. Another plus regarding Ellis House's location is it was easy to get to Niagara on The Lake, which is a very quaint town with shops, restaurants and a plethora of wineries about a 25 minute drive away. We did a wine tour and the tour company picked us up and dropped us off right at Ellis House, which was very convenient. Many thanks to our hostess for a really enjoyable experience; we will stay again at Ellis House if we return to the Niagara Falls area.

Room tip: The Retreat was in a separate building with plenty of light and privacy

Spent 3 nights and felt right at home from the start. Booked the last room available and even though it was small, it had everything needed for a relaxing stay. Our host was so nice and pleasant, gave us tips for attractions and prepared the best breakfast every morning! The house is close to the WeGo bus stop, and is close enough to walk (approx. 1.5 miles) to the falls. Will definitely stay there again on any return trip.

Stayed here for 2 nights at the first part of July and it was really nice. It was very hot at that time, but our room was great, air conditioned, comfortable bed, great coffee, and an ok breakfast and free parking. Host was really helpful with suggestions. Would recommend it .If you need parking by the falls, there is a lot past the Skylon tower lot, $10.00 for all day, Skylon charges $15.00 Meters are $5.00 for half an hour.
