Our summer family get together for a week 2021
The owner John could not have been more pleasant and accommodating to deal with. They were exceptional hosts. This home radiates charm and warmth. It was like staying in a heritage museum in some regards, with all kinds of interesting art, antiques and antiquities. We used this as a hub for a family gathering for 4 couples. Central to everything in NOTL it was so easy to get out and about. The kitchen and dining room were central to our stay and were well suited with plenty of space for us to congregate. Thank you for a wonderful stay John.- The O'Keefe's”
Great family trip in Ontario
This house is just beautiful, lots of artwork which seems to be a lot on the pictures but much nicer in person thanks to the high ceiling. The patio was enjoyable. The area is great close to Ontario Lake and all the vineyards and the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake which is so charming! We enjoyed the restaurants, the wine tastings, eating fresh fruits and vegetables from the farms and visiting Niagara Falls which is also pretty close. Overall, we had a wonderful trip!”
Restful Home and Interesting Destination
John and Liz were wonderful hosts and could not have been more helpful. The home is both upscale and eclectic which makes it, all by itself and along with its provenance, a delightful experience in artful design. Niagara on the Lake is an artistic destination and the Town is enchanting. There is lots to do and the dining is superb. Returning to this home was restful and relaxing. We highly recommend the Hosts, the Destination and the Home. ”
Good wineries in Canada.....you better believe it!
A home conveniently situated right in the center of Niagara- on- the- lake. A 5 minute drive from main street, 30 minutes from Niagara Falls and 90 minutes from Toronto. Activities included live theater, wineries galore, cycling the vineyards and enjoying Sunset beach on Lake Ontario as well as many dining options. John was a wonderful host.”
