Property description

Welcome to our circa 1863 cottage, where you can still feel the history of yesterday.

Artist’s Cottage is the perfect home away from home. Artist’s Cottage is located in the heart of old town, so you are in the main shopping, dining, theater and Lake District. Artist’s Cottage is a typical two story white classic black shuttered Georgian style home that is characteristic of this area.

A two minute stroll to shopping at all the interesting boutique shops, either for food, clothes, antiques or anything else you fancy, you’ll find it on Queen St., Lots of selection for restaurants for your pre or post entertainment for attending a play at the Shaw Festival!! This town has so many parks, you are never more than a few minutes’ walk away. The biking and walking trails takes you through the more historic.
Artist’s Cottage has two comfortable and inviting bedrooms that can sleep up to six people; a queen and 2 twin beds in one, a queen bed in the other.

Fully stock kitchen with fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker and dishwasher. Coffee and Tea are provided.

Artist’s Cottage has huge living room with a fireplace, seating for 6 guest, piano, flat screen television and DVD player.

The back garden is huge and fenced in so it is perfect for the little ones to run around in while you are grilling out on the BBQ! Large patio with table and chairs, so you can relax and enjoy a glass of local wine, while the chef in you is BBQ/grill up some delicious eats!

There is one full bathroom upstairs with whirlpool tub and half bathroom on the main floor.

Old town Niagara-on-the-Lake, something for everyone! 20 minutes from Niagara Falls (the most famous address in the world!); over 100 wineries from international award winners to those quaint family run vineyards; chocolate factory; ice wine; broadway style theater; 5 star spas, golf, sailing, walking, hiking, antique and boutique shopping, biking, horse drawn carriage rides, jet boat up the thundering waters of the Niagara, oh and the food .... restaurants that will delight any foodie!!

Located between two major airports and within a days drive of New York, Pennisylvania, Virginia, MD, Ohio, MI and all of southern Ontario... that is the best part you can fly or drive it is easy to get here!

Historically significant, this area has kept its old world charm but is a hip and happening place! Live concerts in vineyards, fabulous live theatre and one of the wonders of the world, Niagara Falls!


Manager info

About: We fell in love with Niagara-on-the-Lake a long ago, it was our favourite destination when we newly married and care free. We came to enjoy the wineries, theatre, history and the old world charm. This was our spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of big city life. As time went by and we became parents it became a place we enjoyed sharing with our children. They loved the parks, the hiking and of course, the ice-cream shops! It is a place to build memories and share in special moments. Now the kids are in their teens and we still love to come, but not as often as we'd like. So please enjoy our home-away-from-home for us! We love to hear your stories so please post your special moments to the VRBO section under Artist's Cottage. We will jealously read them all!

Why Niagara-on-the-Lake:
Through the years we have come to treasure the historical gems of Niagara-on-the-Lake. With an artistic eye, we could see that history of this town in our vacation home. We purposely wanted to provide accommodation that we, as a young family, couldn't find -comfortable, private, well located and affordable. We were also a growing family, so we needed a place that was spacious inside, a kitchen big enough to cook in and keep an eye on the kids, but also a big family gathering space because we love game nights and music nights – especially in front of a fire place on a cool autumn’s eve!. We also were looking to the future and wanted to be close to the shops so when the children were older, they could easily walk or bike everywhere. Walking to the local grocer was a must because we like to leave the car parked ! The other thing we wanted to make sure we had was a big back yard where the kids could kick a ball and run around to exhaust themselves while we kicked back and relaxed. This home was an opportunity to own and preserve a little bit of the old town Niagara-on-the-Lake!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Artist’s Cottage is definitely a place to kick back and relax. Leave your worries behind and pretend you live like a local. Walk everywhere, you can park your car for your entire stay if you want. Your feet or a bicycle is the best mode of transportation in this town! Walk to the grocer, the local cheese shop, the wine store, baker and you have all the best of ingredients to make the perfect meal on the bbq/grill or in the well equipped kitchen! Available all 4 seasons, we are an excellent choice. In the spring, summer enjoy the spacious back garden and patio area, in the cool evenings in the fall and winter, cozy up in front of the fireplace! There is lots of room to be inside and out and never feel on top of each other, but still feel connected! While we made this a very comfortable and inviting vacation home, we did not go over the top with renovations. That is for two reasons, the main one being we wanted to keep it affordable to a family or for people to come and enjoy the town like we did as a young married couple or as our parents do in their retirement. The other reason is to keep the home true to its historical origins. While we have TV’s, wifi etc - all necessary for vacation rentals. We also want you to enjoy the electric piano and the guitar so that you can build the kind of memories that last a life time. Live in the moment and share it with the people you treasure most – Artist’s Cottage is waiting for you!
