Great location, only 14 min. drive to the brink of NIAGARA FALLS! Our "hoblet" has the look of a woodsy cabin, but is spacious and modern.600 sq. feet in total with a large studio living room, separate bedroom and a bathroom with a built in 2 seater far infrared sauna.( Please note the sleeping configuration would be a bunkbed with a twin & queen bed in the separate bedroom, while the 2nd "bedroom" is the studio/ livingroom, the 2 "pleather" couches convert into 2 single beds (not pullouts), this livingroom area is over 350 sq ft . Outside is viewed through 5 sets of double glass patio doors & 3 skylights. The green living roof is very special. Your "yard" is a hardwood forest with a small stream running through. Beautifully landscaped, out in the country yet only 15 minutes from the brink... More

Warning, there is no cable or internet, but there a 5 shelves full of DVDs, so if you need TV, you can watch movies. I am an animal lover and was so happy to be...

The hostess Petra was great. So helpful with what to go see but not over involved, warm and welcoming, but gave us space. The property was close to the falls and very serene and peaceful, clean and cozy. Would defiantly recommend to friends.

About the neighbourhood
perfect location to enjoy all the Niagara Peninsula has to over. 15 minute drive to the brink of the Horseshoe Falls, 35 minutes from historic Niagara-on-the-lake and 20 minutes from the Peace Bridge. Though you are only 15 minutes away from all the touristy things, a car is needed, we are in the country and there is no public transport available. The "hoblet" is unique in that you are nestled in with nature and the animals, we have a small animal sanctuary, enjoy the close proximity of the animals, of which all have been rescued. There are 5 donkeys, 1 mule, 2 goats, 2 pot belly piggies and 2 dogs. Part of the experience is enjoying the natural setting, and being "unplugged". (Corporate clients, and guests please advise us if wifi/internet is necessary for your stay).... more
