“Absolutely wonderful!”
Reviewed 7 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Our family (2 adults, 2 children) stayed in the Lake House cottage of Nokara Farms. This was our 2nd stay there, and, as before, it was so nice that we were sad when it was time to leave. Kathryn is a very thoughtful host who thought of everything to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable.

The cottage is spacious and clean. The cottage was fully stocked with everything that we could need during our stay. The kitchen has a stove, microwave oven, kettle, coffee maker, pots, pans, utensils, cutlery, plates, bowls, spices, sugar, etc. There were puzzles, board games, and DVDs to keep the kids busy on a rainy day.

There is also lots of room for the kids to run around and play outside (and roast marshmallows by the fire). There is a BBQ and a fire pit. The view over the lake is spectacular. The location is very peaceful and tranquil, but close to shopping, Niagara Falls, wine route, etc.

Time flies when you're having fun. We had so much fun we were sorry to see our reunion come to an end and was over too soon. The Pinot Noir Cottage we rented at Nokara Farms was just perfect for our week-end get together of childhood friends who are separated by distance and time. It was cozy and very comfortable with great view of sunrise and sunset over the lake. We were welcomed with the most delicious homemade muffins and Kathryn made sure we were not lacking of anything we needed. The cottage fridge was stocked with eggs, bagels, milk, cream. yogurt, juice etc. and she even made a special birthday cake. Thank you, Kathryn for making our week-end stay at your cottage trully unforgetable.

Our experience here at Nokara Farms has been top notch. We rented the Chardonnay cottage right on Lake Ontario. Everything here is done perfectly. Kathyn and Joe have been wonderful hosts and so friendly. They have a farmer's market at the entry to the farm, which has wonderful baked good, veggies and fresh fruit. We were given a basket of fresh items when we checked in. The cottage is fully stocked with breakfast items. The bed was so comfortable. We enjoyed walking along the roads around the farm, watching the grape harvest and sitting on the deck for the spectacular sunsets. Niagara Falls, Niagara on the Lake and many other tourist destinations are within a 20 minute simple drive. Our next visit will be for the whole week. If traveling to this area, this is a must stay!

“Peace and serenity with an "ocean-like" view and breaking waves"”
Reviewed 19 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My wife and I stayed in the Chardonnay cottage. It was perfectly suited for a couple who enjoy a peaceful environment, privacy and a cozy feel. Being so close to such a huge lake, gave us a feeling that we were staying at an ocean-front property, complete with breaking waves lulling us each afternoon and evening. The view is magnificent and easily enjoyed through the huge window walls throughout. It truly exceeded our expectations in just about every manner. All needs were met. And then some. I would advise first checking the cottage's provisions before going out to food shop. It proved to be an excellent location for what we wanted to do. It was a wonderful visit.
