Niagara on the Lake has been a haven for golfers since 1875. In fact, North America’s first and oldest golf course is found a few blocks from Lyons House Bed and Breakfast. Niagara on the Lake Golf Club was created on Fort Mississauga Common by Charles Hunter and John Geale Dickson, grandson of Catherine Lyons, and was considered to be of the highest standards, drawing notable golfers and international tournaments. Nearby, Royal Niagara Golf Club has hosted the Skins Games with professionals like Sergio Garcia and John Daly playing on its greens.

Active Recreation

It’s hard to match the beauty of Niagara on the Lake. From our quaint neighbourhoods lined with Victorian homes, to our rolling countryside, to the breathtaking beauty of our lakefront and river banks. Take the time to explore our town, and the surrounding areas dotted with world-class vineyards. Our recreational trails stretch from the Commons- across the street from Lyons House B&B- through Niagara Parks, and right along the Niagara River to Niagara Falls.


In the Niagara Peninsula, we’re blessed with a temperate climate and nutrient-rich soil. This is the perfect environment for vineyards and Niagara is home to more than 40 world-renowned wineries. Fields along the base of the Niagara Escarpment and Lake Ontario are laden with fruit, vegetables and flowers. Peaceful villages and languid, tree-lined roads make for an exquisite journey of superb wines and extraordinary cuisine. Rent a bike and set off, or join a guided bicycle tour of our wineries.

Whirlpool Jet Boats

As the powerful Jet Boat speeds upriver, making their way into the breathtaking stonewalled canyon that is the Niagara Gorge. The anticipation builds as the boats splash into the whitewater of Devil’s Hole Rapids.
The ultimate destination is the legendary Whirlpool, just a half-mile below the tumbling waters of one of the wonders of the world, the mighty Niagara Falls!
