“What a great place”
Reviewed 12 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I just finished a long stay at the Doll House. A beautiful little house on a very large lot set in old town. Jason and Nancy have been very hospitable. Everything is clean. I am sad to leave.

“Very Disappointing”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

After reading other reviews, I think this property must have deteriorated recently, or other travelers have different expectations!

Our first impression was of a neglected yard - weedy and un-mowed; dead plants left in place in the yard or in pots here and there. The driveway is coarse gravel and the walkway to the front door is large uneven stones, all making for a very challenging entry to the house. Front screen door will not stay closed because the keeper is broken. Curb appeal doesn't match the pictures on their web site.

The online description lists "Cable TV." There was NO TV, only DVD's which we were not interested in watching.

The bedrooms and bath are very small and cramped. Main bedroom had very small bedside tables, not large enough to hold anything but the tiny lamp that was on them; smaller bedroom had no bedside table at all, only a very hard chair serving as lamp table. All chairs in the property were hard and uncomfortable. Kitchen chairs had thin cushions which really didn't help much.

Closets have hardly any room for guests' clothes since they have other "stuff" in them: water heater, linen storage, etc. There is little to no room for guests' toiletries and cosmetics, either in the bathroom or bedrooms. We temporarily removed the little throw rugs that kept slipping on the bare floor, providing ample opportunity to trip and fall. The small window air conditioner was not adequate to cool the entire cottage in the hot weather we were experiencing, even with the ceiling fans also running.

The kitchen leaves a lot to be desired: the microwave placed on top of the refrigerator is hard to reach, the oven door won't open all the way because it runs into the refrigerator; there is only one outlet in the counter area, limiting where appliances can be placed. The dishes and glassware on the top shelf of the cabinets can only be reached by standing on a chair - or having a very tall person available. And - we discovered on the morning we were leaving, the kitchen had ants!

I am sorry to make such a negative report, but this was definitely a bad experience, and surely not worth the money.

This is a wonderful little cottage in Niagara on the lake!! Very clean, perfectly located. Home away from home. Everything you could possible want from coffee beans and grinder to movies and wifi - all there. Comfortable beds, fresh linens and towels. We walked into a lit fireplace, bottle of wine and chocolates. So thoughtful and welcoming. Thank you, Orsi!!! We will definately be visiting again.

“Great little spot”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Cute little home perfect for a weekend get away. We had two dogs that enjoyed the back yard. Perfect distance to walk to old town and quick drive to many wineries, outlets and the Falls. Would definitely stay here again!

“Such a cute, and clean cottage!”
Reviewed 26 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We booked online, and were so impressed with the cottage. We traveled with our small dog and he loved playing in the backyard. We enjoyed using the BBQ for dinner, and it was a short beautiful walk into town to shop and get groceries. Orsi was lovely and accommodating as well. We will definitely stay there again!
