Niagara-on-the-Lake house description

Convertible bed(s), Baths (Sleeps 5-10)
Perfect Home-Away-From Home
Walk in the door of Abigail House and you’ll immediately feel right at home. This newly updated century cottage will delight you with its cozy charm and central, downtown location. Snug enough for two, yet with plenty of room for a group, Abigail House is the perfect choice for a theatre weekend, family reunions, anniversary celebrations or a relaxing getaway with the girls. Good for the guys too... get your 4 best buds and come and golf at one of the outstanding and international renowned golf courses!

Bring the entire family and settle in for a picture-perfect vacation. Abigail House has a well-deserved reputation as a reasonably priced, family-friendly holiday home. Daily stresses will melt away as you enjoy the serenity of our flagstone patio and beautiful gardens while the kids play in the spacious, fully-fenced yard. There’s also a huge park with a playground, swimming pool and tennis courts just down the street and the lake is only a 5-minute walk away. Your holiday will be filled with fun, fresh air and happy memories.

Filled with Charm and Comfort

We take great pride in providing a warm and welcoming ‘home-away-from-home’ for you. Located in the heart of town on a quiet, tree-lined street, Abigail House is spotlessly clean and endlessly comfortable. The cottage has air conditioning, large principle rooms with plenty of seating, a fully-equipped kitchen, polished hardwood floors, 4 generous bedrooms, 2 full baths with showers and a convertible sofa bed that accommodates 2 additional guests.

We pay particular attention to our beds and bedding to maximize your comfort. All of our beds are piled high with pillows and come with new, top-quality mattresses and freshly ironed, high thread-count cotton sheets.

The main floor bedroom is bright and airy, with a fully renovated 4-piece bathroom. Perfect for a romantic escape, it also offers accessible convenience for those who find stairs a challenge. The upper floor has another full bathroom with a luxurious clawfoot tub, as well as 2 queen beds and 2 extra-long twin beds that can be converted to a King bed.

Just imagine how much fun you’ll have grilling up a delicious meal on the BBQ, gathering round the harvest table for great food and conversation, then kicking back on the cozy, 3-season porch to watch a spectacular sunset! We also provide a flat screen TV, DVD player, Wi-Fi and free North American long distance for all your entertainment needs – plus plenty of quiet nooks to curl up with a good book.

We’re Close To Everything!
Abigail House is the ideal home base for exploring the beauty and unique attractions of the Niagara region. Shopping, fine dining, the Shaw Festival Theatre (and a grocery store!) are all just a 2 minute walk from the house. You’ll feel the world slow down as you leave traffic jams behind and stroll along our flower-filled street into the quaint and historic downtown. If you’re in the mood for even more relaxation, treat yourself to an afternoon of pampered bliss at one of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s many spas.

When you’re feeling more ambitious, plan a tour Niagara’s world-famous wineries and colourful farmers markets, where delicious local food, wine and entertainment are always on offer. Niagara Falls is also a short drive away, with its breathtaking views, family adventures and exciting nightlife. Don’t forget to book a Whirlpool Jet Boat tour of the rapids – it’s a thrilling experience!

Golf lovers can enjoy a round on North America’s oldest golf course, right on the banks of Lake Ontario. And history buffs will love the fact that Abigail House is a historically significant century-old schoolhouse. From here you can explore Fort George and the military museum or take a nostalgic carriage ride into picturesque Old Town. There’s so much to do in the Niagara Region that you’ll be back again before you know it!

Abigail House offers something for everyone. Available for short or long-term stays, you’re welcome to stay for a week (or more!) or just come for a weekend of rest and relaxation. Our doors are always open for you!

                  Car: Recommended

                  This is the best location for the people who like to park their cars and walk, hike or bike!

                  Abigail House is in the historic old town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. One minute walk to Queen Street, the main shopping, theatre and dining area!. Three minute walk to the shore of the Niagara River where it flows into Lake Ontario. Watch the sunsets from the landmark gazebo!

                  This is a family friendly location because parks are close with playgrounds, swimming pool, tennis courts and the military museum with the self interpretive walking trail through the historic Commons.

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About: We purchased Abigail House over fifteen years ago as a vacation home for our family. We were captivated by the convenient location and old-world charm of this lovely cottage and have carefully updated it to preserve that cozy, welcoming feel. As our children grew up, we spent many wonderful summers relaxing in the beautiful gardens, hosting family gatherings and celebrations and delighting in all that Niagara has to offer. Now, we feel the time has come to open our vacation home to guests, so that other families and visitors can enjoy the same wonderful experiences and happy memories that our family has cherished over the years.

                  Why Niagara-on-the-Lake:
                  Abigail House is the ideal home base for exploring the beauty and unique attractions of the Niagara region.
