"Thank you Jason for all your help planning a surprise 35th Anniversary Trip for my husband. We stayed for one week at Icicle Valley, and we could not have asked for a better vacation.
The cottage is even better than the pictures. The views from the cottage are breath taking. The kitchen is amazing and very well equipped. Our family spent a lot of time hanging out here, and taking turns enjoying making dinner while visiting with each other.
We were a group of seven ranging in age from 58 to 1, and the cottage had something for everyone. The waters edge was sandy and easy to walk into with our granddaughter. Our grandson and sons enjoyed fishing off the dock, and the canoe got well used. The hammock was a favourite spot to read and relax and the pool table was a great addition on the raining and cooler nights that we had. There is a very nice fire pit area and firewood was supplied (a great bonus) and we had a fire most nights. The hot tub was also used, and the steam sauna quickly became a favourite, The wireless connection was vey good.
Also we truly appreciated that we were able to bring our dog with us on vacation.
We would not hesitate to recommend this cottage to family and friends looking to plan their vacations.
Our grandson's only complaint was "Do we have to go home? Can't we stay!" and we take this as a sign of an awesome vacation."

"We stayed at this Goodwood mansion over the Family Day Long weekend. The owners were amazing and were so responsive whenever we needed something. The place was perfect for our family reunion of 10. The theatre room and games room were fantastic and the large family room with huge fireplace was just perfect for our weekend getaway. There is enough privacy with bedrooms for 5 couples and 3.5 washrooms. Loved out stay and wouldn't hesitate coming back! Thanks for everything Jim and Bert!"

"The Homestead was a wonderful property to spend our week in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Plenty of lovely rooms and space for our group (6 adults, 2 children). The house was incredibly well stocked with everything you could possibly need for a long stay; the kitchen has various pots/pans/cooking utensils (which came in quite handy for home cooked meals as we preferred to cook our own breakfast and stayed in on most nights), the backyard was spacious with a heated salt water pool and a grill (which again, we loved since we prefer to cook our own food), and imagine our surprise when we found a high chair and a "pack n' play" crib in one of the closets! This was super convenient for us since we were traveling with 2 small children (a 3 and 1 year old, respectively), and hadn't had room in the car to bring these amenities. The neighborhood was beautiful, relaxing, and only about a mile away from the main avenue in town, and about a 20 minute drive to the Niagara Falls area. The Homestead is also very close to many of the vineyards, making winery hopping stress free. Bill was attentive and answered all of my emails almost immediately; it was nice to know we could easily contact him if we needed anything. We fell in love with this property and cant wait to visit again next year."
