  • A quaint attraction with an over priced gift shop attached. Great little spot to get a bit of history. The guides didn't bother to hide their frustration at the Laura Secord Chocolate co. who had owned the homestead previously and spun quite a few yarns to unsuspecting tourists. You could also hear the pride in their voices when they talked about Laura's journey, and the subsequent defeat of the Americans (at least in the battle of Beaverdams). The Laura Secord Homestead is a refreshing bit of old fashioned charm, away from the flashy tourist spots near the falls.
  • It was pretty goo d.Thankful it was free on Canada Day.Not worth the price of admission
  • If you are a history buff, this will not disappoint! Tour of the house and grounds as well as life history of our Canadian heroine!
  • Historic home that has been rebuilt with period materials and furniture. A little.expensive for the brief and basic tour but if you like history it may be worth a stop.
  • For such a small place, it has a lot to offer. And the staff is very knowledgeable and eager to get into conversations about local history and architecture. Well worth your money and your time.

Where to stay in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Niagara-on-the-Lake abounds with accommodations that can be more affordable than those just a few minutes south in the city of Niagara Falls. The town's grid-like streets offer an array of choices, with Mary Street, Mississauga Street, and Queen Street among the most popular. If you're looking for something a bit more luxurious and don't mind paying extra, stay near the lakeshore and enjoy waterfront views from your bed and breakfast.
