Retiring Update
November 12, 2021
We have decided to retire, closing our Bed and Breakfast permanently.  This decision has not been made quickly. It has weighed on us for some time.  We are so grateful for all the wonderful friendships we have made over the past 34 years. 
We hope that we have been able to truly make your visit to Niagara a vacation to remember.
Thank you for understanding.  We will miss you all!
Be Safe and healthy!
Patricia Collard, Proprietor 

  Lakeview c1880

        Built in 1880, our home is one of Niagara's "Chautauqua" cottages.  Although our Canadian Chautauqua, ceased operation in 1900, Lakeview continued as a summer residence until 1956.  First called the Swiss Chalet, guests were welcomed during the 1920's and 30's for afternoon tea and lunches. Rooms were also available for the weary traveler.

        This year marks the seventy-first year that our family has owned Lakeview.  Jim and I purchased it from his parents in 1984.  We also celebrate the thirty-fourth year that we have greeted friends and guests to our home.


        The way to see Niagara-on-the-Lake is at a leisurely and thoughtful pace.  We were glad to let our home be your central holiday location for winery tours, golf, cycling, dining and of course the Shaw Festival.  There are so many things to do in Niagara-on-the-Lake.  Taste a new wine at one of our many award winning wineries.  Take a walking tour provided by the staff at Canada's first museum.  Step into history at Fort George where re-enactments are staged throughout the year.  If you seek excitement, see the Niagara River up close on a Whirlpool Jet boat or rent a kayak from Niagara Kayak.


        We are so proud that Niagara-on-the-Lake has once again set the gold standard for the International Communities in Bloom competition.  Our town won first place for the world in 2017.  We are very proud of the way our town and our neighbours take care of their yards and gardens.  Hopefully, you will enjoy walking around the community to see so many wonderful sites.


        Please know we will miss hosting you as you learn more and more about our town.


Thanks always 



Patricia Collard, Host
