When should you purchase a B&B? Viewing the properties is easier when the owner is not scurrying around cleaning the house getting ready for the next guests. Just as the season is coming to an end is a great time to look! In Niagara-on-the-Lake, the season goes until the beginning of November. However by the last week of October most B&Bs are busy on the weekends but the guests leave Sunday mornings after breakfast. Give the owner a couple of hours to clean the rooms. So Sundays – to Thursdays in the off season are perfect viewing times.
Closing date should be a month to 2 months before the season starts up again, for the Niagara region that would mean between March and April 15th. This allows you not to be moving in the dead of winter and still enough time to get your license, time to start accepting reservations and just plainly ready for the season to start
