Winery-owners, restaurateurs and now inn-keepers, Helen Young and husband Leonard Pennachetti are double-handedly bringing life back to the old winery village of Jordan. Helen looks after the inn on one side of the main street, Leonard masterminds the Cave Spring Cellars operation on the other, with the restaurant (great views from upstairs) and shops dotted around.....

.... ‘Twenty’ references abound because the area, named by Loyalists fleeing the US after the War of Independence, is 20 miles from Niagara, and Jordan is an ideal spot if you want to base yourself away from the Niagara maelstrom. The inn is in an old warehouse, so it does not have the most poetic of exteriors, but the lack of architectural strictures meant that Helen was able to do pretty much what she wanted with the interiors. As a result, the rooms are very special; combinations of vibrant sofas and bedspreads, high pale walls and bathrooms that vary from the merely extravagant to the palatial. Five have private gardens with trees and wooden benches – nothing plastic here. And another five are in the 1840-built Vintage House right next door. Talks, seminars and wine tours often available at weekends.
