“Very Clean, central location.”
Reviewed 13 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

I had friends visiting from Florida that wanted to see the Falls. After some research, I settled on "By the Vines". The house is Very clean inside and as described in the ad. Pictures are true to form. There was plenty of room for the 5 of us to all have our own space. The house is a short drive to Old Town in Niagara on the Lake and close to the falls as well. Since we wanted to do things in both areas, it was the perfect location. Scott was pleasant and easy to deal with and answered a phone call promptly. He even popped in as we were unloading the cars when he was driving by to make sure everything was ok. My only complaint would be the condition of the yard itself. The grass was in need of mowing and the flower boxes on the deck were over run with weeds. We enjoyed breakfast on the deck, and drinks and appetizers at the end of the day of sight seeing and it would have been more enjoyable if the grounds were a little better maintained. Other than that, I have no complaints and really enjoyed our stay.

“Beautiful By-the-Vines Cottage As Advertised on TripAdvisor”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed at the beautiful By-the-Vines cottage surrounded by Joseph's Estate lush Vineyards for eight nights with our 14 and 23 year olds kids in late August. This spacious 2 bathroom cottage is very comfortable for up to 6-8 people with two queen bedrooms on the main level and a separate double-twin bedroom downstairs along with a sofa bed in the open living area. The cottage with amenities that also included a fully equipped kitchen, two large HDTVs with DVD players & library, Vonage phone service, WIFI, a fully equipped laundry room, large back yard deck area featuring Weber gas grill was so much better than living out of hotel rooms for our visit to Canada. Recommend walking over to both the Harvest Barn for gourmet baked breakfast goodies and Joseph's to stock up on great wines as soon as you arrive! Very reputable private local owner/manager is responsive to guest requests.

Tom, thank you for taking the time to write the review, its funny you mention the pictures, I too have experienced that same issue in the past and its very frustrating! Many of our guests often comment that By The Vines looks better in person than in the pictures and I prefer it that way! I hope you will stay with us again in the future
