“Not a great place to stay”
Reviewed 24 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Yes it's conveniently located but so is everywhere in Niagara on the Lake. The beds are incredibly soft and squeaky. What the pictures don't show you is the garden is about 12 foot wide and backs straight onto a pub so you get all the noise when people arrive / leave plus the deliveries in the morning. The bedrooms are on the side of the pub as well so it's noisy! The owner also thought it was acceptable that the outside of the property would be fully painted while we stayed there. The first day we were there we had the noise and mess of the painters jet washing the outside of the house which made the house unusable for the day. So the first we knew about it was when a man appeared in the garden at 9am!! The owners accused of lying about all of this work until we provided trip advisor photos. The description also fails to mention that the house is under video surveillance and the owners record when you enter and leave the house, which is incredibly creepy.

Thank you for review. We had sent you an email two weeks in advance of your stay to let you know that we were having some painting done on the property. We are continuing to upgrade and invest in the property every year. In 2014 we painted the interiors, in 2015 we replaced all of the doors, in 2016 we laid new paving stones and for 2017 the major project is exterior painting. Unfortunately because of the recent rain, the painting was not complete before your stay. Also, we do not take photos or record when you enter/exit the property. We have the Ring doorbell system, another addition in 2016, which was installed for our guest security and records using a motion sensor directed toward the driveway. There is an illuminated sign beside the front door and the objective is strictly to act as a deterrent for any vandalism to our guests’ cars. We also have the Lockstate door lock which is connected through the Internet and warns us if our guest is having any trouble unlocking the door. Because the system is connected through the Internet, we can unlock the front door at a moment’s notice if our guest cannot get access to the property. It was unfortunate that you were not satisfied with the location as we have received nothing but glowing reviews that usually praise the property’s location. There is no closer cottage to Niagara-on-the-Lake’s downtown ambience. We were pleased that TripAdvisor reviewed your stay and agreed that a discount was not warranted. Hopefully you will find a more suitable location for your particular needs on your next vacation, John and Lorraine.

“Beautiful cottage, fantastic location”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The cottage was absolutely perfect for our family group of 5 (3 teenagers). Spacious and well equipped, we could not have hoped for more and we all had a fantastic time in Niagara on the Lake. John was very helpful and accommodating. We would not hesitate to recommend the place

“The cottage is beautiful, in a perfect location and so clean!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My two sisters, my Mom, and my niece all stayed at the cottage for just one night for a quick multiple birthday celebration. We loved the quaint location, which is so typical of Niagara-on-the-Lake. The decor was perfect - not over done, and not too sparse. Loved everything from the Captain's coat and hat, to the armoires in the bedrooms to the pictures and artifacts throughout the house.

We could walk to everything. Parking was included, so we didn't have to worry about finding a spot!

There was plenty of room upstairs with two bedrooms with two double-beds. The pullout couch was actually a futon, which was much more comfortable than a cot or standard pullout.

With only staying one night, we were luck that the house was ready for us earlier than 3:00, but realize that if it were rented the night before that may not have been an option.

We all loved it! Just wish we had more time!
