Welcome to Lakewinds! Step onto the verandah of this elegant Victorian manor and return to the tranquility of the 1880's. A special and unique experience awaits you at Lakewinds, a recently restored Victorian manor, offering the best of bed and breakfast experiences. Situated on a quiet acre of extensive flower gardens and mature trees, Lakewinds offers you unparalleled views of the North America's oldest golf course beside the lake. A short walk away is the centre of the old town where you will find the theatres, wonderful shops and restaurants to suit every palate.

Common areas are elegantly appointed with an eclectic mix of antiques and other period furniture...but you can still be connected to the present via our wireless Internet network. Our large heated pool with loungers, four guest bicycles, a great billiard table in our games room, a solarium and secluded spots to sit provide our guests with pleasing diversions during their visit. Sumptuous breakfasts, using herbs and produce from the garden, are served in the grand dining room or you may have a continental breakfast delivered to your room. Of course, breakfasts are complimentary. And our beds are wonderfully soft yet firm. Each room has a clock radio that can play and charge your MP3 or iPod.

Lakewinds has been filmed for TV and used as a setting in a major Hollywood movie. We've been featured in the NY Times, Getaways for Gourmets and the Discerning Traveler. But it's the comments from our guests we cherish the most: "You are the jewel of Niagara! You are all graciousness" ... "We have stayed at many inns and rarely encountered such friendly, elegant, studied perfection". Whether you stay a few days or many, we will provide knowledgeable advice and personal service to maximize the time you spend with us.

Historic/Heritage Details: The house was started in 1880-81 and became the summer home for Mr. Gustav Fleischmann, a wealthy distiller from Buffalo N.Y. and member of the famous Fleischmann's yeast family. Originally named "Clarette" (in tribute to his two oldest daughters, Clara and Thornetta), the house stood on the entire 4-acre block with gardens and stables at the rear. Staff cottages and a guesthouse can still be found on properties adjacent to the original manor. in 1912, Clarette was purchased by Conrad Wettlauffer, a Buffalo physician, who carried out extensive alterations. The home has glorious views of North America's oldest golf course, where play started in 1875. Even then people wanted to build a home on a golf course!
