Lake Erie, the warmest of all of the Great Lakes, spans 241mi (388km) on the US-Canada border – and its shores are sprinkled with some fantastic places to stay. Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway, history-rich vacation or vineyard bolthole, there’s something to suit all types of travelers, with brilliant breakfasts to boot.
For a regal stay with a fascinating history, this B&B is hard to top. Surrounded by English gardens, it sits high on Prospect Hill, on the edge of Port Dover in Ontario. The interiors are as grand as you’d expect for a castle, with throne-like dining chairs, chandeliers, deep-red color schemes and woven rugs. As well as a dining room, there’s a fully equipped kitchen, should you want to prepare your own meals.
