Good tour, good food, relaxed atmosphere

Good tour for any seasons we've gone. Tea room is bright and sunny, food is good, staff are very friendly. Just a tad pricey in the tea room - save it for a special event

Interesting place where the scones were delicious but pricy. Also the tour in the house was nice and interesting to see how people must have lived there years ago. It was not that different from old Dutch houses

Loved the quaintness, relaxed and a great cup of tea! What a nice way to spend a couple of ours together and share a plate of sandwiches and treats!

This is the only home that did not get burned when the Americans burned Niagara-on-the-Lake to the ground and made the Canadians (then British) go and set fire to the White House and the Capital Building in Washington DC. Nice afternoon tea.

The brides parents arranged for the selection of food. Different teas were exceptional. Service was very friendly and assisted with choosing different teas.

Enjoyed our visit here. The house is well preserved and interesting. There is also lots of parking on the grounds. We had a nice stroll around the grounds as well. Not crowded when we visited which made it more enjoyable.

We were so excited to try McFarland House on our visit in Early October, 2016 but discovered it was closed. We didn't realize that they are open only on weekends in October. Very disappointed because it got rave reviews from friends who have visited before. It was 70+ degrees the first week of October so I hope they reconsider in... More

We popped in for the house tour - all tours are guided - and we found it informative and interesting; our guide was enthusiastic and very professional. However, the highlight was the cafe (tea room). Staff were excellent, the menu great and food fantastic. The scones were the highlight, and the coffee was pretty good too!
