Ben Brae Bed & Breakfast, Niagara-on-the-Lake Ben Brae Bed & Breakfast, Niagara-on-the-Lake








David and Lynda both have business backgrounds and know what their guests
appreciate in comfort and ambience. They will make an effort to offer guests a warm welcome and share hints about dining and local attractions to help maximize your stay. Lynda and David have lived in Niagara-on-the-Lake now for seven years and have fully adapted themselves into the community both belonging and starting a variety of groups. It is a great place to live and vacation and offers a wide range of things to do covering a vast array of interests.

Your hosts have historical connections to the town itself, with Lynda's family amongst the original settlers to the region. There is at least one street name connected with the family. Her ancestor, Stone Wall (Thomas) Jackson of the American Civil War years has been featured in the artwork shown at Fort George during special battle re-enactments. Lynda's ancestor's home, Gage/Jackson House, may be toured June, July and August in Stoney Creek, Ontario. It is clearly marked by road signs on the way to Toronto and is well worth the visit for history or antique buffs. Both Lynda and David's rich connection to the Maritimes help bid you a hearty Ciad-Mile-Failte (A Hundred Thousand Welcomes).

LYNDA'S MOTHER'S SIDE:
Lynda's mom's uncle, L. D. Jackson - former mayor of Hamilton. They named a shopping centre after him - L. D. Jackson Square in Hamilton.

LYNDA'S FATHER'S SIDE:
The first Scottish children were born in Nova Scotia
There is a historical monument called a Karin dedicated to the first settlers who arrived in Nova Scotia on a ship called the Hector. Family here and from Scotland were present for the dedication by Princess Alexandria during a special ceremony. Aunt Elizabeth Grant designed and wove the Cape Breton tartan which is popular in Nova Scotia along with the Nova Scotia tartan.
