Just up the road from Niagara Falls, Niagara-on-the-Lake is one of the prettiest towns in North America. Explore the Lake Ontario waterfront and beyond from these B&Bs, bookable on Culture Trip.

With tree-lined streets and beautifully restored 19th-century homes, there’s a reason Niagara-on-the-Lake is so popular with tourists. When you’re not perusing the antique stores of Queen Street or taking in the vistas of Lake Ontario, head to a nearby vineyard for wine tasting; the area boasts some of the best wines in Canada. There’s no need to book into a fancy hotel when you have these upmarket bed and breakfasts instead.
