About Us

This redesigned 5-suite Country Inn in Niagara on the Lake is situated in the heart of Old Town. It was originally built in 1859 as Niagara Public School, the first local public school to be built after the War of 1812. Local Historian, Author, and co-founder of The Niagara Historical Society Janet Carnochan was one of the school's first Principals. This heritage building in the National Historic District of Niagara on the Lake is now School House Bed and Breakfast c1859


COVID-19 Update (Updated Sept 17, 2021 Re: COVID-19 Proof-of-Vaccination System)


Starting on September 22, all guests staying in School House Bed and Breakfast will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (two doses received for at least 14 days at the time of check-in). Similarly to restaurants, theaters and other various venues in Ontario, guests will be asked to show their vaccine receipt alongside a photo ID upon entry. Regrettably, guests unable to show their proof of vaccination on the day of arrival will be denied entry and may not receive a full refund. Individuals who cannot receive the vaccine due to medical exemptions will be permitted entry with an official note from a healthcare professional. 


In addition, the following precautionary measures are put in place to protect our guests and staff:



  • Guests who share a suite must be from the same household

  • A request to complete a health questionnaire will be sent out two days before arrival

  • During the stay, please continue to practice physical distancing

  • Masks must be worn when walking through the public areas inside the house

  • Breakfast is served in our dining room with physical-distancing protocol in placed. It can also be served in our front garden (weather permitting)

  • All suites are thoroughly ventilated, cleaned and sanitized before guests' arrival

  • All high-touch surfaces will be sanitized regularly throughout the day


If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us.
