“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!

“"Why did we have to leave".. ugh”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Well this place is to die for. We had a girls weekend with 5 girls and we got like a glove in the vineyard cottage.

Kathryn and Joe were great loving people. They gave us our privacy. The vineyard cottage comes fully stocked with everything a human can imagine..lol..holy cow!!!! They did not forget one thing..no lie!!!

We bought veggies from the store..fresh as ever and laid them on the grill..best meal we have had in years...have mercy

We loved Kathryn.. she seems fun down to earth and friendly.

Firewood included.. so we took advantage. We ate peaches right off the tree. I don't think we stopped laughing. We are planning on making it a habit here. We loved the water, privacy and how clean it was...extremely clean

There is nothing bad about this place what so ever. Every cottage seems like it has its own character... just book it baby!!

“Peace and Tranquility!”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed for 2 nights in the Chardonnay Cottage at Nokara Farm and had a lovely peaceful time. The Cottage itself is ideal for couples or small family. The one Bedroom has a very comfortable King Bed and the Living area has a Queen sofabed, so perfect for youngsters. The deck wraps around the back of the cottage and overlooks the lake, you feel you are actually on the water itself. Wonderful Sunsets in the evening, and Glorious Sunrises in the morning make this a beautiful spot.
Muffins, Cereal, Coffee, Tea and Milk and Eggs were also all supplied free with this rental. You don't have to go out and buy all
of these ingredients for your stay, they are supplied with the Cottage.
The Farm has many fruit trees, which Kathryn and Joe very graciously allow you to pick off, and they have a great little Bakery at the front driveway which sells all the vegetables they grow on the farm. We also enjoyed the Weber Grill for our Barbeque which is provided for your use, and the box of wood for the firepit
which was an added bonus. Each Cottage has its own uniqueness
and we enjoyed this particular one very much.
Kathryn and Joe are wonderful, friendly people who love what they do and want you to enjoy their farm as much as they do. You just
don't get better than this!
Thank you for the lovely birthday gift!

“Perfect Retreat from Niagara Falls”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We recently stayed in the Riesling Cottage at Nokara Farms for a Friday and Saturday night. We arrived 2 hours early, but Kathryn had the cottage ready and welcomed us to move in for the weekend. She took time to explain everything to us and left phone numbers where she could be reached with questions. There was a nice box of fresh baked goods on the table waiting for us! While we were settling in, her husband Joe came to the door with a basket of fresh peaches and plums from the orchard. They were delicious. The Riesling was perfect for 5 with 2 bedrooms and a sofa bed. The kitchen is small but well equipped. The refrigerator, freezer, and cupboard were stocked with plenty of breakfast foods including eggs, milk, orange juice, coffee, cinnamon rolls, waffles, etc. There is more than enough for breakfast. The view of the lake is amazing. There is no direct access to the water as the cottages are up on a bluff. The location is very quiet since the cottages are at the back of the orchard. The sleep quality was excellent with comfortable beds and cool breezes coming off the lake at night. The cottages are a short, 15 to 20 minute drive away from the falls. They are the perfect place to stay if you want to spend the day at the falls, but retreat to quiet solitude in the evening. Highly recommended!
