Right in the heart of Ontario’s wine country stands a Georgian mansion surrounded by 17 acres of vineyards, manicured lawns and gardens. With 21 rooms and a gourmet restaurant, Riverbend Inn & Vineyard is the premier hotel in Niagara-on-the-Lake.


A Historic Hotel in Niagara-on-the-Lake

The property of Riverbend Inn & Vineyard dates back to 1809 when a modest stone farmhouse was built. We honor that heritage by giving all guests to Niagara-on-the-Lake a warm, inviting home with a sense of history at every turn.

From the grand chandelier in the lobby and the archival photographs dotting the corridors through to the furnishings and vaulted ceilings in our 21 rooms and suites, a stay at Riverbend is as charming as a visit to the wineries down the road.

Complementing any stay is the cuisine at Oaklands, featuring seasonal dishes expressive of the region and handpicked wines to pair. When the weather allows, Ansley Sparkling Terrace is also open with a collection of local sparkling wines. 

Facing west, Oaklands offers unobstructed views of the sun setting over idyllic rows of grapevines, capping off a magical experience in wine country.


The Perfect Group Retreat

Riverbend is the premier hotel in Niagara for thoughtful, productive corporate meetings or other social events. Everything is custom-tailored to your needs with catering offered by our in-house team and access to a series of offsite activities.


Oaklands at Riverbend

Oaklands celebrates simplicity, the season and a sense of place. We connect people to place through respect for our history, our land, artisans and our commitment to warm hospitality and service. 

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner (times vary), Oaklands at Riverbend takes its culinary cues from Executive Chef Ross Midgley as well as Niagara’s ingredient-driven cuisine, rooted in the breadth and depth of global French culinary influence.

Weather permitting, Ansley Sparkling Terrace features seasonally inspired lighter fare with Niagara’s own sparkling wine and creative cocktails.

Meet the Chef

Why did you become a chef? I have always loved entertaining people and learning about where they come from. Food is the one true cornerstone of all humanity; nothing we do is absent from food in some way. I guess, ultimately, being a chef is the greatest way to truly communicate with people. I love that!

Riverbend is the Inn in Niagara

“It’s history, luxury and magical location is why the Riverbend Inn & Vineyard is the toast of Niagara’s wine region.”

Discover Niagara’s Top Patios

Our four Niagara estates feature a handful of incredible patios that serve up everything from pizza to lobster linguine. It’s time to kick back and relax with a glass of wine, cocktail or beer in hand and enjoy the vineyard views. With so many amazing patio options at our partner wineries, the hardest part of planning an afternoon escape can be deciding where to soak in the views.
