Escape to Niagara-on-the-Lake

You don’t have to sacrifice the much-desired resort vibe just because you can’t fly south. Vintage Hotels offers the unique experience of allowing our guests to stay in the hotel of their choice, while enjoying the amenities of each of the neighbouring properties’ restaurants and spas.

Eat at a different restaurant every day, ranging from Victorian opulence through to Tuscan comfort. Take a dip in Pillar & Post’s year-round outdoor pool or book a private session in the hot spring pools. Each location will truly make it feel as though you are on a resort – yet the menu offerings, cocktails, service, and facilities will far exceed anything you’ve encountered during an all-inclusive vacation down south.

Best of all, beyond these superior elements, you can venture around the region to visit countless wineries who share our commitment to safe, elite, and private experiences. Take comfort in the fact our region’s staff strictly adheres to all social distancing policies, so you will never find yourself in an overcrowded restaurant, winery, or pool.
