Welcome to our 1846 Italianate Inn, set on 1.5 acres on the wine route in Grimsby, Ontario (The Gateway to Niagara). Step back in time for a relaxing, memorable stay where the hospitality is topped only by the delectable treats that the Viticulture of this area can provide. To start your day, the smell of fresh brewed coffee will awaken you and a sumptuous breakfast will fulfill you. Then choose any of the wonderful things to do along the wine route. From a morning of walking the Bruce Trail, cycling on one of three designated paths, to an afternoon of Wine Tastings at one or more of the local Award Winning wineries. There are also a number of Golf courses nearby to test your swing. Many festivals dot the calender from Spring to Winter. Then return to the Inn to refresh, relax and enjoy the scenery from the 4th floor Widow's Walk until it's time to dress for dinner. We will then tempt you with a Teaser Wine Tasting from the Winery Restaurant where we will, upon your request, have booked your reservations for a fabulous dinner. Or, one of the local pubs might suit your mood. When you've fully satiated yourself with the area's delights, return again to the Inn for a Candle Lit Swim in our in-ground pool or sit by the firepit for an aperitif. Or, if it's chilly, how about a game of pool in the library by the gas fireplace? Then retire to your luxurious bedroom and curl up under a cozy duvet to watch a movie chosen from our library. Drift off to sleep feeling fully pampered and wake up to experience more of the area's delights. We look forward to meeting you!
