General Facilities

Your comfort comes first with us when you stay at Avalon Clearview.  Years of travelling have given us a good idea of what makes for a comfortable place to stay when away from home.  When we decided to open our B&B, we wanted to incorporate everything we had learned so that your stay with us would be pleasantly restful in casually elegant surroundings.

At Avalon Clearview we leave nothing to chance.  A whole separate level of our house is devoted specifically to our B&B guests, ensuring total relaxation and privacy.

Each B&B guest room:

  • Is spacious and comfortable so guests will have lots of room to move around
  • Has its own private and well appointed bathroom, including hairdryer
  • Has large picture windows and a walk-out sliding door to a private patio
  • Has beautiful views of the property (even from the bathrooms)
  • Includes Gilchrist & Soames and H20 bath products exclusively

Check in time is between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.  Check out time is 11:00 a.m.  If you require alternate arrangements, please contact us.

How we Help Mother Nature.

Avalon Clearview is situated within the Niagara Escarpment, which is one of the United Nation's designated World Biosphere Reserves. 

This is a special situation, and we think it comes with special responsibilities.  Click here to read the story on how Elaine and Steve have tried to develop and operate Avalon with good stewardship principles, common sense, and a love and respect for this beautiful property.

The B&B Lounge.

Made just right for relaxing, the lounge is completely at the disposal of our B&B guests. With two snuggly couches and a large gas fireplace, you can kick off your shoes and put your feet up. Watch a little TV if you wish, choose a movie from our eclectic collection, or select a book, magazine, game or puzzle from our library. Better yet, sit back and take in the spectacular view from one of our biggest picture windows.

The Dining Room.

Tranquil country colours and antique finishes greet you every morning in our large, bright and airy Dining Room. Indian Harvest slate adorns the see-through wood burning fireplace, over which Gaston our “fat French chef” presides, always at the ready for mouth-watering culinary adventures. Our Coffee Zone is available 24 hours a day for hot beverages. A spacious cedar deck off the Dining Room is also at your disposal, with glass panels to enhance your sight lines of our special property. The million dollar view is included with your country gourmet breakfast.

The Kitchen.

This is cuisine central – where all good meals are created. Antique pine cabinets coupled with dark green granite countertops and hemlock flooring continue the country theme. Our farm animal motif is evident everywhere - chickens, roosters and sheep (not the real ones of course!) all adding to the décor. We even have a very large antique tile mural of what we lovingly refer to as the “exploding Essex pig” over the cook top.

When we have gourmet weekends and cooking classes, the kitchen island is extended to allow guests to sit with us as we work.
