"My family and I stayed for a short vacation to see our extended family before the kids have to go back to school. We have stayed at many rentals in the area, this one truly was by far the nicest we have stayed in. Alicia was a wonderful hostess. She gave us directions to grocery stores, recommended places for us to visit and where to eat. She told us the history of the house and how she grew up there and now lives there when she doesn't have guests. She brought her baby with her Jack and he was very sweet. Very, very shy but sweet. It's nice to hear that Alicia grew up there because you can definitely see her love for the house in the way that it is so well taken care of. I was really surprised at how close the house was to the Falls. We were able to leave our car at the house and walk to most places. Our first morning there Alicia stopped by with muffins and bagels and some hot coffee from a place called Tim Hortons. It was so yummy and I was glad because we didn't have to worry about breakfast and we could just get the kids ready and go out. The house was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. I joked with Alicia that she might have OCD because there was cleaning stuff in every bathroom and in the kitchen and everything was so well organised and well looked after. Just a word of caution. The house has a lot of vases and decorative stuff. Make sure you keep an eye on younger children. Its not a huge deal we just made a rule for our girls not to touch things on the shelves and you may have to move a couple of things out of reach. The garden outside is very beautiful. It has a kind of wild look to it but it is very nice. We were very pleased to see so many birds around the yard. Cardinals, blue jays, lots of humming birds and tons of butterflies. It was very magical and my daughter loved going out into the back yard (which is huge by the way) and looking at the butterflies. We even saw a couple of rabbits and 3 chipmunks. We were told not to feed them which is a good idea because they already seem a little to comfortable with people around. The chipmunks came and sat on the picnic table while we were sitting about 4 feet away around the fire pit. Probably the best feature of the house is the sound of the river can be heard and seen from the house. Even with the windows closed we could hear the sound of the river and see it a little bit through the trees. We will definitely choose to stay here again in the future and recommend it to our friends."

"We spent 4 days here and had a wonderful time. The view of the lake is fantastic, the cottage is comfortable and had everything we needed, the neighbors are friendly and Lori and her husband are terrific! We would definitely stay there again and look forward to another trip north!"

"My entire family of 19 people met and stayed at this very cool historic house for the weekend to celebrate my parent’s 50th Wedding anniversary. We were beyond the recommended number of people for the house but we were still all very comfortable. We spent the majority of the weekend on the wonderful and private front porch, there was always a great breeze and plenty of room. The house is located in an obviously historic part of the city but we definitely always felt safe and it was very quiet. The bedrooms were all nice with a large room on the third floor that made a great game room for the kids. The house comes with everything that you need to enjoy your stay, It was a 10-20 minute walk to Niagara Falls, the Maid of the Mist, and most of the local attractions. The owner was very helpful and easy to work with. We had a great time at the house and would definitely rent this house again if and when we visit the area again."

"Most relaxing much needed vacation in a long time!!!! Maureen and Darcy thank you so much for everything!! Your cottage is beautiful an immaculate. Everything was perfect we loved quiet times eating at the table inside an out watching the beautiful view of the lake. My husband loved the hammock in the afternoon with a good book and the fire pit at night. We can't wait until next year to come again or we may sneak a weekend in when it snows its just a great place for a couple. Wish we could've stayed longer!! See you soon ( HOPEFULLY)."
