Niagara-on-the-Lake cottage description

Courtside 1 located in the heart of down town Niagara-on-the-Lake is a perfect vacation home for a family of six or two couples! It has a modern decor, up-to-date amenities and fabulous outdoor space! Where else would you get a private patio, access to a tennis court, outdoor kitchen, bbq/grill and a huge back garden?! Everyone one is on the one level and there is lots of space to gather around the kitchen or hang out in the living room! Better yet, go out to the gazebo and relax with a good book and a glass of wine, while everyone else is busy getting dinner ready. But be aware those that don’t prepare the meal are destined to clean up afterward!
The location of Courtside 1 is in the core of what the locals call ‘old town’ , an historical district that is where the horse drawn carriages go by, in the middle and within walking distance of the two main shopping and dining areas. The Lake and Niagara River is an easy 10 minute stroll. The Shaw Festival theatres are also a leisurely walk along the prettiest streets that the town has to offer. No need for a car, so park it for your stay! This is a perfectly bikeable and walkble community that is great because of the trails, sidewalks and quiet areas. Around Queen Street you get some hustle and bustle, but out on Simcoe and Centre St., you are definitely in a beautiful quiet neighbourhood and you can really feel like you are living like a local! In the winter this is a perfect place to snuggle in to with close access to the Commons which offers cross country ski and snow shoe trails. In the summer the commons has a public swimming pool and play ground. The Commons also has public tennis courts but you won’t need them because you have access to your own private one!
Enter in the front vestibule and then right into the open concept living room and dining room. There is a small TV, books, and games area but mostly its great for kicking back and having a great conversation with your traveling buddies. The kitchen is right off the dining area which is convenient for serving and still feeling like you are a part of everything! The
Available Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall, this is the perfect place to stay while you are in town for either a couple of nights or a longer stay. The drive way parks up to 3 vehicles, the beds are made with quality linens, we supply the towels, equipped kitchen and we have main floor laundry too! This is a home-away-from-home in any season!

                  Car: Recommended

                  Park your car in the private drive, and then walk or bike to everything! Go to the local farmer’s market and organic meat shop and it home for a good home cooked meal and a bottle of local wine! Stroll the evening away by exploring the neighbourhood as you head down to the water’s edge and watch the sail boats in the setting sun.

                  Our cozy home is complete with high quality bed linens, towels, soaps, shampoo, laundry facilities, flat screen TV and wifi. All that is missing is you and the people you love to travel with!

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About: Since purchasing our beautiful home, we have embraced Niagara-on-the-Lake and the times we have shared at Courtside Rentals with our family and friends. Walking to our favorite restaurants, strolling along Queen Street, biking to Queenston Heights, taking in the sights and sounds of the waterfront, and exploring the many beautiful wineries in the region are some of our favorite pastimes. The connections we have made to the area have been influential to our lives– both of our sons attended post-graduate studies in the Niagara region and one is pursuing a career in the wine industry. Little did we know the impact that our decision to purchase in 2008 would have on our family! We take pride in offering you the best accomodation for comfort and convienence and hope that you will enjoy and respect them too. Please note that we are fully licensed vacation property rental by the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. The very best from our family to yours!

                  Why Niagara-on-the-Lake:
                  Centrally located in old town so you are not to far from anything! What really captured our hearts was the amount of property and the privacy it offered. It is like having our own park! The tennis coursts were just an added bonus!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Courtside 1 has a fabulous outdoor space with a gazebo, park like setting, out door kitchen and access to a private tennis court. Need an extra bedroom, enquire about the Courstide 2, our one bedroom tennis suite HomeAway listing 970334 !
