Keefer Mansion Inn Niagara Falls Reviews
Nov 01, 2007
Keefer Mansion Inn was built in 1886 by George Keefer, who was a prominent citizen of the area. He helped the area alot and was involved in the Welland canal. The mansion was the grandest in the area, but unfortunately depleted the family's resources, so they did not actually live there for very long! The home had several owners, but was finally bought by the town of Thorold several years ago, restored and opened as an historic inn.
Our room was the Jacob Keefer Room, 302, on the third floor. This was not the room that Scott origianally booked, but they let us look at several and pick the one we liked best. The inn is furnished with period-correct reproductions. A lot of the original woodwork does remain, and has been painstakenly stripped and refinished.
They have a restaurant that has been open about 18 months, and is doing very well. The downstairs common rooms have the bar, breakfast room and main dining room. Breakfast is included with your stay and is served each morning in the breakfast room. The innkeeper serves it herself, and is a light, Continental-style.
All the innkeepers we met during our visit were very pleasant and happy to give advice on where to eat or go. There were, however, curious as to how two people from Alabama found their inn!
Scott found the inn reviwed by Lonely Planet's website. It is off the beaten path from the tourist trap surrounding Niagara Falls.
We ate dinner there for our anniversary. We both had the beef tenderloin, and it was very good, very tender. Their wine selection is dissappointing, featuring mostly local wines (which we were hesitant to try). We settled on the one California cabernet sauvingnon that they had. The rest of our dinner was nce, but not outstanding.
