“Amazing lake and vineyard views! Perfect cottage!”
Reviewed 1 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Our family of 8 spent the last week of October at the Lake House Cottage. It was perfect with the amenities as described. As we are the last guests of the season, we were invited to see inside of all 5 cottages. They all are amazing and are lake front with sweeping water views on one side and vineyards on the other. The location is great for day trips to Niagra Falls, Niagara-on-the-Lake, and even Toronto. Plenty of shopping, dining, fishing, sightseeing, and winery options. But, we enjoyed relaxing right at the cottage the most.

How can a cottage be so easy to access from the QEW and yet so peaceful and private? A great base for cycling, theatre, hiking, wine tasting but also spacious and comfortable enough to laze all day, watching the sailboats race on Lake Ontario or barbecuing up a feast with friends. What a luxuriously equipped kitchen! We were blown away by the breakfast supplies that Kathryn had laid in for us: juice, milk, eggs, yoghurt, bagels, cereals and oh my, those homemade cinnamon buns... Beds were comfortable, all linens supplied, free fast WiFi, everything spotlessly clean. Lots of advice available on what to do in the area. We certainly appreciated the produce, home baking and preserves at Nokara's farmstand too.

“Best weekend ever...”
Reviewed 28 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We rented the Lake House Cottage with 6 girlfriends for a weekend away. The setting was totally incredible, you are right in the vineyard behind the cottage and right on the lake in front of the cottage. The cottages are immaculate and very clean. The beds and linens were very comfortable. Joe and Kathryn are incredibly welcoming and accommodating. Upon our arrival we had warm muffins delivered and so many treats were found in the cottage - check the freezer, to die for cinnamon buns!! They made sure we had everything we needed and Joe would even make your fire if you needed him too. These cottages are hidden treasures. I would not hesitate to rent any one of the cottages. Thanks again for a great weekend we didn't want to come home!!

“One of the best places in Canada!”
Reviewed 20 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed 9 days in the Pino Noir Cottage. It was just great! Hosts are very friendly and helpful. There was always fresh fruit and a welcome box with muffins.

We really enjoyed our stay and can highly recommend it!!!

“Superb service, superb accommodations, superb location!”
Reviewed 15 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My wife and I, along with our two married friends, wanted to rent a place near Niagara Falls. We found the perfect spot. We stayed in the Lakehouse Cottage. All the cottages on the property have a lake view. Our cottage fit two couples very comfortably. They are fully outfitted with kitchen, nice bathrooms, bedrooms, etc. Coming from the states, we were unsure of what foodstuffs to bring, but when we arrived we had a box of muffins, fruit, and a refrigerator stuffed with milk, eggs, butter, and cream.

Katheryn was very nice and the desserts they sell on site are very good. The cottages sit on the edge of their farm; look out one window you see the lake, the other window you see the fields of grape vines. The trip to the falls was only about 15 minutes, a quick and easy jaunt.

One word of warning for Americans- beer and liquor is sold by the government there and can only be gotten at certain stores. Also, it is very expensive. Oh, by the way, we enjoyed some beer and good food next to the campfire, with wood they supply.

I have no complaints whatsoever with our stay. It was nice and quiet as the cabin next door did not have anyone during our stay. The weather was perfect except for our last day which was rainy. Our beds could have been a bit more comfortable, but overall they were ok.

It's too bad there aren't more attractions near this area- I'd go back a 2nd time to explore more.

“Just Perfect”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The Pinot Noir cottage was just perfect, as was the view of Lake Ontario from its patio. The cottage was very clean and had everything needed for a weekend getaway. Great location, far enough away from the crowds of NOTL but close enough to civilization (i.e, groceries, wineries) that it wasn't a chore to get out and about. Can't wait to go back!
