Enjoying the great outdoors is essential when coming to Grand Island. Kayaking on the waters of the Niagara River is one way you can escape from everyday life. Launch them directly from our beachfront and enjoy all of the wildlife you will encounter along the way. If you are a boater, we have a unique opportunity for you. With almost 100 feet of dock space available, our guests are given free access to mooring their boats with up to a 36” drafts at our B&B. This makes the South Bridge Bed and Breakfast a wonderful place to stay for more than a night or a weekend. With direct access to the Erie Canal to the East and Lake Erie to the West guests can bring their boats from almost anywhere in the world.
If bicycles are your thing we have a few you can borrow, or bring your own to enjoy the 23 mile circle ride around the island that will take you from the sight of Buffalo, NY in the South to mist rising from Niagara falls in the North, to long vistas of our Canadian neighbors to the West, and the gateway to The Erie Canal in Tonawanda, NY to the East. Along the way you can visit Beaver Island State Park at the extreme southern tip of the Island where a public golf course and beach and picnic areas are available. At the Northern tip of the Island is Buckhorn State Park where there are more chances to see wildlife and view migrating waterfowl.

The space itself is very upscale and comfortable. You get the impression a lot of thought and hard work has been put into this B&B. Comfortable bed and a well-designed bathroom, which I always appreciate. The atmosphere is very calm and peaceful. Alan offers a generous amount of complimentary wine, beer, etc. Delicious morning breakfast with tons of food options. The location is right off the river and very scenic. I'd never been to Grand Island before, and it's a clean little laid back community, almost like Canada. Plenty of parking. Lots of paved walking & biking trails. Would definitely stay here again!
