Advice Needed: Proposing in Oakville-Brunch & Hotel Accom??

Hi All,

I am coming to Toronto/Oakville (from Philadelphia) from 10/24-10/25, and needed advice on best/romantic brunch spots, possibly overlooking the lake (where I plan to propose),for Saturday morning, and romantic hotels (or bed&breakfast) for Sat and Sunday night.

Are there any boutique hotel/resorts (non-chain) that a girl would like that you would highly recommend?

Thanks for your help,

Oakville< in my opinion does not do the hotel thing too well. Mostly chains, a few Band B's, but nothing spectacular. Best advice is toc check out Niagara on the Lake or Jordan for romantic inns.

Oakville, unfortunately, is ot blessed with an abundance of waterfromt restaurants, either... The lighthouse has a great lake view, but the food and service do not compare. Specers on the Waterfront, in Burlington, fares better , but still lacks the WOW factor. Both Jonothon's and Olivers are great oakville fine dining options, but not on the water.

Hi Jerry7,

I'd have to agree with KERLYRANOAKVILLE, a proposal and getaway to Niagara-on-the-Lake would definitely be more stunning and it certainly is romantic and geared towards couples (that said... IF you are tied to doing this in Oakville for some reason I will say that the waterfront is quite beautiful, especially around Bronte Harbour Park).




PS... If you aren't tied to Oakville, check out the NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE FORUM and info on all that there is to see and do in the Niagara Region (tons more than just The Falls).
