At Home in Niagara Falls

We spent a couple of days at Niagara Falls at the end of last week. I'd been there once when I was about four or five, and Joe had never been. Since it was not very far from Chautauqua, we decided to make our vacation a little bit longer.

We stayed at Park Place Bed and Breakfast, where our hosts Louise and Tom were ever so gracious, accommodating, and helpful. Yummy breakfasts, and at the end of a long day of walking in the heat, we returned to find a pitcher of ice-cold lemonade and some decadent cookies. Who could ask for more?

We'd chosen the place because of the Arts and Crafts period style, and we surely were not disappointed. It was absolutely exquisite. There is only one thing I would change, and of course I did not hesitate to mention it: The placemats and napkins should have been made from William Morris fabric! Other than that, the place is perfect.

If you visit Niagara Falls, and you really should (more about which in a subsequent post), I urge you to consider these accommodations. Within walking distance of the tram that unites the various attractions, it is so convenient. Here are some pictures to whet your appetite:

This is so neat, I read your blog, and enjoy it so much, and I live in Niagara Falls. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. We walk our dog on Goat Island at least once a week and never get tired of the falls. What is even neater is that I lived for 6 years in and around Philadelphia! My daughter was born in Langhorne. I went to Bucks County Community College and my husband got his masters at Temple. I moved back here 25 years ago but I still miss Philly.
