Enjoy the sound and sight of horse and carriage as they pass by the house offering scenic rides throughout Old Town.
This picturesque cottage and property is full of history! The Crown Patent for the original lot was granted in 1802 although the lot was divided only in 1905. This single family detached dwelling was built circa: 1890 and was moved to the present site in September 1919. The nucleus of the house was originally an “officer’s rest house” on the Fort George Commons. The property is exquisitely landscaped and the cozy exterior appearance belies an expansive interior. A shed at the back was built circa: 1900 and has been transformed into a welcoming studio. The main house projects happiness in its décor and serves as the perfect get-away for all who stay.

The home features a gas fireplace, flat panel large screen TV with blue-ray DVD player, stereo with auxiliary inputs for your iPod/MP3 player.

- We are in old town Niagara-on-the-Lake, just a minute stroll from the lake front and the oldest golf course in North America! A quiet residential area but with the convenience of being just a stroll away from all the quaint shops and the Shaw Festival Theatres. We also have the luxury of being around the corner from the Oban Inn which is one of the best restaurants and spas in town! Our little oasis is situated between Queen Street and Front Street in a garden proud neighourhood ! We really enjoy our quiet street that is nestled in amongst the activities on queen street. We love to sit on our front veranda and watch the horse drawn carriages meander by! Our evening strolls take us along some of the most beautiful homes in Niagara-on-the-Lake and the temptation is to get an ice cream along the way! See if you can resist!?! We love to cook with all the fresh local produce but never seem to have all the ingredients, so we are fortunate that it is quicker to walk to the local grocer than drive! We get all our fresh baked bread, fruits, veggies and snacks daily. We love the cheese shop and the boutique food shops such as Kurtz' and Greaves! Did I mention 3 bakeries, 2 wine stores, fudge shop, Scottish shop and countless ice cream shops to tempt you ? The theatres for the Shaw on Queen Street make it easy to walk to and not have to worry about parking, the festival theatre should only take us about 8 minutes to walk to, but inevitably we are distracted along the way so we always allow ourselves about 1/2 hour so we can stroll at our leisure. ...moreless

Girl's Get Away Weekend
This is a lovely home. We were five women and I was initially hesitant to book because it only has two bedrooms. Four of us doubled up and one slept on a pull-out sofa in the living room. One bedroom is huge and has a king bed. The other is probably a double or queen. The living room does give privacy as all the shutters close tightly and it's down the hall from the bedrooms. The two bathrooms (one for each bedroom) are updated and very nice. The best part of the house was the front porch where we sat and had coffee and wine and talked. There is also a nice patio and screened porch in the back of the home. The proximity to the downtown or the water is perfect. We walked everywhere except wineries, which require a drive. We walked to church, the theater, shopping, the shore, and walked all through nearby neighborhoods looking at the beautiful homes in the area.

Roseneath is a quiet, centrally located, clean cottage with four amazingly welcoming inside/outside furnished seating areas and a beautiful garden area. The bedrooms are clean and very comfortable and the two bathroom spaces are clean, bright and modern. The kitchen area is also bright and clean and boasts all the conveniences. It is a wonderful place for four people who can do three steps with no problem. One bedroom and the outside area both are accessed by three steps. Using the pull-out couch in the livingroom as a bedroom is not recommended as it is uncurtained. The cottage is in walking distance of the lake and downtown. It is a lovely place to stay and we would return again in a heartbeat.

Cottage on the lake
We just spent two nights in Niagra on the lake . Roseneath cottage is absolutely beautiful. The cottage is very well situated walking distance to all shops and restraunts . The cottage is equipped with everything we loved relaxing in the screened in patio located at the back of the cottage . The backyard is gorgeous with comfortable outdoor furniture. The master bedroom is spacious and very comfortable. We loved just walking around Niagra on the lake and enjoying the beautiful well appointed flower gardens and beautiful scenery . We would definitely recommend Roseneath Cottage .

About: When my wife was a little girl, she fell in love with Niagara-on-the-Lake, and although we travel the world, this is where her heart always is! We really enjoy sharing our love for this town with our guests because they enjoy the charm, history, and culture the way we do. We love having family here, but when the grandkids go, and its just the two of us, well what can I say, romance is in the air! We love to garden, and really enjoyed the screened in back patio dining area with the grill/bbq. I am not a foody but my wife certainly is. Living here with all the fresh local produce inspires the gourmet in her! We love walking and biking around town to see all the changes and what is new and interesting in everyone's garden! My favourite time is early morning and having a coffee on my front porch!
Old town Niagara-on-the-Lake reminds me of a much simpler time. Also being so close to the water, we get the benefit of the breeze and all the positive ions. Our hearts were set on finding a little historic cottage that was a bungalow with a large garden. We had walked by Roseneath on many occasions and often dreamed what it would be like to live here. We were so fortunate that we timed one of our stays just as it came up for sale!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Roseneath has all the historical charm of a bungalow, but it is solidy built and has been updated. The huge back bedroom with a king bed has the view of the garden. The lay out is unique but it actually makes the house well organized with the perfect kitchen for a cook to get a faboulous meal ready and is ideally located to the dining room. The front room is the living room and TV room and the huge Florida doors make the front veranda seem like part of the room! This house is quaint enough to be romantic, but spacious enough that when the family is all here, we still have room to move! The huge fire place also makes this an appealing spot no matter what time of year!
