A great place to stay! It beats a lot of the big chain hotels in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Coordination was seamless for check-in and check-out. The moment we got there our host Chris had a thorough introduction to the place, told us where to get our refreshments, where the keys are, where to go around Niagara-on-the-lake etc. The location is less than...

First the good part. This small cottage was clean, and had many small extras in their decoration that made it attractive. Unfortunately, there were many short comings. The back door is permanently locked shut, making the unit a potential fire trap. The cottage was described as having a barbecue, and yes, there was one. Unfortunately, it was not functional. Our...

Very private and comfortable heritage cottage rental close to downtown Niagara on the Lake. It's a very unique cottage and the cottage is filled with hand crafted furniture, in fact 2 of the fireplace mantle pieces are from Shaw Festival Plays. I love the original pine floors, windows and doors from Circa 1871 that greet you as you first enter... More

My husband and I wanted to stay somewhere beautiful for our 30th wedding anniversary and we found it at "wishing Well" Even in the middle of winter the garden was stunning-imagine a walk in a natural reserve and you understand.The cottage itself was a dream-I felt completely at home as soon as I walked in the door.Everything was there for...

We visited in between the winter holidays. Is situated approximate to the historical village. This B&B is rented as whole house. Feeling very cozy comfortable and warm. Cute vintage decor, fluffy pillows, full kitchen. Will visit again.

We had a great stay at this lovely cottage. The beds were so comfortable and we appreciated having a full kitchen to cook our meals. We used the BBQ in the back yard which was handy plus the (Gennair) BBQ in the kitchen. I loved the garden, so unusual I thought I was up in North Ontario and there were... More

We stayed for two nights and for the price, $200 each night for two bedrooms, two bathrooms was fair value. The bedlinen and beds were very comfortable and the towels good quality. The house appeared clean and there was plenty of hot water and hot air. I would suggest the owners do a declutter. A dining table that seats 10... More

I rented this cottage as it was one of the few available with two bathrooms for my husband & me to host our two friends from Ontario for our trip to Niagara On The Lake. Although it was nice to have fresh coffee, tea, cream and fruit supplied upon arrival, we were disappointed in most of the cottage's other features.... More

We had a memorable time in this house, but not for the right reasons. The house is very poorly kept, even the fake flowers are dying. The futon bed was old and uncomfortable. The house was furnished in a particularly eclectic style. If I had checked these reviews before booking, we would not have stayed here.

Thank you Mrs Gibson for spending the time to review my property. I'm just a little confused by your review because when you entered the cottage and you were on the phone with my manager, Chris, you expressed that you found the cottage to be "charming" and that you found the cottage comfortable. Also we advised you to let us... More
