Old Stone Inn Boutique Hotel

Old Stone Inn Boutique Hotel located at 6080 Fallsview Blvd in Niagara Falls

Last weekend, we stayed at the Old Stone Inn Boutique Hotel when we were spending the weekend away in Niagara Falls.  This hotel was one that popped up on Groupon when we were briefly looking for a hotel to make reservations for for our trip.  Like many of the other hotels listed, this also included breakfast and dine-in vouchers, and wine tasting and chocolate tour tickets.  What made this hotel stand out though was its affordable pricing, close location to the Falls, and really rustic and unique-looking interiors!   Continue reading

After our brief stint at the Chocolate F/X chocolate factory, we proceeded along the route towards Niagara-on-the-Lake and visited Konzelmann Estate Winery.  The hotel stay was so awesome in that we also received a free voucher to go wine tasting at this winery!  I was looking forward to it since there are so many wineries in Niagara and Niagara-on-the-Lake, of which many are well-known in Ontario.   Continue reading

“If you can’t dip it in chocolate, it’s not worth eating!”  That’s the slogan of the Chocolate F/X chocolate shop that we visited when we were in Niagara Falls this past weekend.  Chocolate F/X is actually located in the town of St. Davids but it’s only a 15-minute drive from the Falls or a 15-minute from Niagara-on-the-Lake.   Continue reading

We were able to enjoy two meals at The Flour Mill Restaurant at the Old Stone Inn Boutique Hotel when we stayed there this past weekend.  To start off, the Old Stone Inn Boutique Hotel is an absolutely magnificent and beautifully rustic hotel that used to be a former flour mill dating back to 1904.  This made for a very historic and characteristic restaurant housed inside the boutique hotel where the walls were made with stone.   Continue reading
