Niagara-on-the-Lake cottage description

'The Willow' is steps from the Lake and its breath-taking sunsets, If you leave without seeing just one of them, you need to slow down & need to come back. Sit under the shade of trees much older than we care to think of and listen to the Wind in the Willows. We also run Hoppy's B&B and Nelles Cottage in town, We wanted to give this cottage some serious TLC & decided to take care of it personally. We gave it a mini make over from refinished hardwood strip flooring to comfy furniture and added some Chi elements to complete the picture.

We spend a greater part of our life sleeping and so furnished the 2 rooms with premium Queen 'Dream maker' mattresses/beds.

An electric fireplace in the living room and a Duncan Phyfe claw foot dining table by the kitchen helps bring friends & family together and make lasting memories.

The home is dog (30 lbs) friendly, There is a charge for your pooch. How ever you should e mail us prior to making a firm booking. Sadly we can only accommodate one small dog per booking. Fido has to gring his/her own bed. There is an outside pooch loo beside the garage. Please see that you pick up after your pooch. With respect for our guests who do not have pets we ask you to not allow Fido sit on any guest furniture

All you need is your toothbrush and clothes and we take care of the rest. Quality cotton sheets & towels and complementary toiletries provided. To keep the indoors free of allergies etc we kindly ask you to refrain from smoking indoors and when you do please do so responsibly.

We also do our best to make the indoors free of outdoor contaminants like pollen, grasses and dirt, and ask you to kindly avoid wearing out door shoes in the house. We have provided sanitized guest use flip flops for your indoor use.

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About: Amitha and Hoppy (Terence) are proud owners of the very successful B&B aptly called Happy's, located in the a quiet area of town & 'Nelles cottage' - in the heart of town, but far enough from the madding crowds. We took early retirement and then dove in to follow our dreams....This is what we enjoy most. We are a part of the town and enjoy every aspect of it....especially its proximity to the US border, Toronto, and our very special children and grand children.

                      Why Niagara-on-the-Lake:
                      We chose this special town because of its proximity to the US border, Toronto, the Lake, Natures bounty, and its clean air. Mostly because of our cherished grand kids. It's plain to see why it is called 'The most beautiful town in Canada' Perhaps the World.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      The Willow is in the oldest part of this beautiful town on a quiet street but close to Queen street, Golf, Dining and theatre. and a 30 minute 'sunday' drive along the Niagara parkway to the famous Falls, Buttefly conservatory, Marine Land, The Botanical gardens.
