I was looking for a spot for a short getaway from Toronto and having a dog makes things tricky. I was so lucky to have found the Cottage by the Lake. I stayed two nights in the bigger of the two cottages. It was cozy and quaint, tastefully decorated with amazing views from the main room with the bed and...

I just left the most amazing Cottage on the Lake! I was there visiting some girlfriends from school. As I was driving down the rural road peach orchards surrounded me. When I parked my car I could see the lovely cottage, and in the distance I could see the skyline of Toronto in the background. The cottage is prestine. Inside...

We visited the Beamsville and Grimsby area for three days, staying at 'the cottage by the lake" for two nights. This is a little hidden oasis, right on the lake, in the heart of wine country. We stayed in the smaller 'Weathervane" cottage which is truly only suitable for one or two people. We were greeted on arrival by owner...

Highly recommended! My family and I spent four evenings at the Cottage by the Lake. The entire experience exceeded our expectations and we were taken aback by the graciousness of our host(owner)Philip. The cottage afforded us with a beautiful rustic setting near many urban locales--the Falls, St Catherine's, Burlington-- and wineries. The rates are a value and we received many...

We love this place! Upon arriving we found our parking spot in front of the cottage and our name on the door. Inside was the key to the cottage. The cottage is refreshed every other day and the refrigerator is restocked. This was a pleasant surprise! The cottage had maybe five fresh flower arrangements which were such a lovely touch....

There is little not to like, and a whole lot to love about these two unique little cottages on the lake near Beamsville. Philip is an amazing host, and the charm and serenity of his well cared for place is very evident. We stayed in the Weathervane cottage, to the east of the main house. One of the unique features...

My time at this cozy little getaway was absolutely fabulous. The cottage was comfortable and had everything one could think of. The view of Lake Ontario was beautiful and the sunrise and sunsets were calming. It was nice to be in the country fresh air, The décor is simplicity, clean and comfy, food was excellent, desserts were delicious, the Columbian...

When I planned a vacation for my family to Niagara Falls for the week after 4th of July, I knew I would need to find a respite away from the crowds for my husband, son and puppy dog. Cottage by the Lake is just what we were looking for! You can watch the sun rise and set over Lake Ontario,...

The only bad thing I can say about my stay is: I had to leave. Everything was exactly as portrayed by pictures/descriptions and the lake was absolutely beautiful and RIGHT there - and I mean RIGHT! there. The way the property is set up naturally lends itself to guest privacy, and the owner only approached me when he saw me...

What a lovely destination to arrive at after cycling all day from Hamilton. Our host, Phillip, did everything in his power to make our stay as comfortable as possible. He even lent us his car to go and buy some groceries for dinner. 3 of us stayed in the "big" cottage. It was perfectly clean, had everything we needed and...
