Niagara On The Lake Canada

Just about a half hour north of Niagara Falls is a quaint little town called Niagara on the Lake.

We always drive by the Falls when we head north to Wine Country where Niagara on the Lake is located.

We stayed at this gorgeous Hotel ~Prince of Wales. It’s located right in the heart of town.

When visiting in the summer the town is filled with flowers that align the streets and buildings!

Not only are the flowers outside but they are also inside many of the buildings.

Each evening we found a rose on our pillows.

The lobby had beautiful displays as well.

Strolling through town and all the shops is just part of the fun!

Carriage Rides and Trolley Tours of the area along with local wineries are available.

We chose this Tour Company through our reservation at the Hotel~Prince of Wales.

First it took us to see the gorgeous neighborhoods of the area.

Then we were off to three wineries. First was Strewn Winery. We were given a tour of the winery and three tastings along with a wonderful description from the host.

I actually bought a late harvest wine here. Not quite an ice wine but close. What is ice wine, you ask? This area of Canada is well known for their Ice Wine which is hand picked in late November and December where the grapes have to be frozen on the vine. It’s a more concentrated dessert wine or a sweet wine. It comes in a smaller bottle and costs more because it’s more tedious to make.

This is the bottle I purchased. Because it’s not considered an Ice Wine it can be harvested a little differently late in the season but still has some of the sweetness as an Ice Wine. The price tag was much more reasonable. I am going to use it as an after dinner drink but also to marinate fruit and then serve with whipped cream.

Off to Konzelmann Estate Winery. Truth be told… this whole area reminds me of Napa. This estate winery was proof of that.

The wines were quite good.

The third winery was okay. Their presentation was not wonderful and I did not care for the wines. Therefore I am not going to comment about them here.

Although the day before we had fabulous wine at Sister’s Winery. It’s a fallacious estate of gorgeous vineyards and darn good wine. Since this was a get away with my sister and my two wonderful friends who are sisters as well. This was the perfect winery for us.

There are many restaurants to choose from. One evening I had a Clam and Muscles Fettuccine from Orzo Restaurant. All four of us were extremely happy with our dinners.

The next day we had High Tea at The Prince of Wales. A nice added treat to our weekend stay.

The scones were warm and delightful!

Our time together was fun and girls just need to have fun especially SISTERS!

I encourage you to visit Niagara on the Lake, Canada. View Lake Ontario and the surrounding area! There is an annual Peach Festival August 12, 2018 That is sure to be fabulous!

Thank you for reading and enjoying my captures of our fun Sister’s Get Away!

Until Next Time ~Nancy

  4. Nancy,what a fabulous trip for you ladies to enjoy together. It looks like a gorgeous area with plenty to take in. Those pies looked delicious and a slice would be perfect right now. I love all the old homes and of course, the flowers! Thanks for taking me along with you. Have a great week!

  7. I’ve been to Montreal, unfortunately, on business and at that time of year when their tourist season ends, so I was only able to take a tour to Quebec City before everything shut down. But I love every minute of being there, so much so, I’d love to return one day. Your photos have me pining. How was the wine, Nancy? (I’m a Cab-Merlot fan.)

I'd love to hear from ya...
