Majestically perched upon the Niagara Escarpment, this grand Victorian mansion is straight out of Pride and Prejudice. Enormous rooms with soaring ceilings are the perfect setting for marble fireplaces, grand pianos, ornate plaster mouldings and a smattering of antiques.....

.... The pianos, by the way, are not mere ornaments. Linda is a prodigious musical talent and she has played the piano to no less than four Canadian Prime Ministers. Photographs of her with various glitterati strew the surfaces. If you ask nicely you might get a private performance - but clearly this cannot be expected every day of the year. Long-standing Torontonians, the time came a few years ago for Paul and Linda to escape the Big Smoke and do what they’d always wanted, run a B&B. And 18 months on it’s obvious to me that they’re still loving their new vocation and get genuine pleasure out of making their guests happy. One newly-wed couple were reduced to tears by their efforts! The bedrooms are big and airy with painted or pine wooden floors and giant windows. With its fireplace and luxurious bed the Fleming got my vote, although the Ross has the bonus of a balcony. The gardens and wrap-around verandah, however, can be enjoyed by all. One for Victorian buffs. Very near The Bruce Trail.
