Overview

About the property

This great house was built in 1860, inside & out there is lots of room to enjoy

The avr/night rate that you see quoted on the right is in USD converted from Canadian. When you click on rates/availability the rates you see are USD average based on my daily rates. When you click “Request to book” you see the daily rate X the number of nights that you requested quoted in Canadian funds. None of these prices are right, they are all higher than actual. When you request to book I will reply with the correct pricing or Google Marrakech Mansion and go to my web site for pricing.

Marrakech Mansion is a registered Heritage property, located in the heart of the Historic old town. You are one block from Queen Street, one block from the oldest golf course in North America and ½ block from Queens Royal Park on the river.

The house has 4 bedrooms, three with queen-sized beds, one with two single beds and a fold out couch in the library. The beds are all equipped with sheets and duvets, warm duvets for winter and cooler ones for summer. Each bedroom is supplied with two bath towels, a supply of hand towels are in the bathroom.

The dining room, living room and library are all on the main floor allowing lots of living space. The new flat screen TV is connected to a HD feed so the picture is perfect! The phone system will allow you to call about 60 countries free of charge and the Wi-Fi signal is excellent.

The kitchen is fully equipped, with fridge, stove, dishwasher, microwave plus cooking utensils and dinnerware enough for ten people.

The house has three bathrooms, two on the second floor and a ½ bath on the main floor.

The courtyard garden adjacent to the kitchen is your outdoor dinning room with a Weber gas BBQ and Moroccan tile table that seats ten. The front veranda is a great spot for your morning coffee.

The remainder of the property contains a parking area for at least 5 cars, lots of grass and flowers. The property is 106 feet by 126 feet so there is lots of room to relax and spread out.

About Don George

My wife and I love Niagara on the Lake and we love to restore historic homes. We also like to see people enjoying their vacation. We have been able to accomplish both by purchasing two lovely old homes in the heart of old town. We treat them like our own second home and decorate them the way our own home is decorated. I hope you enjoy Casabalnca cottage and Marrakech Mansion as much as we do.

Don George purchased this house in 2005

Why Don George chose Niagara-on-the-Lake

When buying or renting it is all about the location: This house is 1 block from Queen Street, the grocery store and the Golf Course. The Royal George Theatre is a block away! You can also enjoy dining at home in the sunny private side garden with Moroccan table and Weber gas BBQ. The 6 Muskoka chairs on the Lake side of the property provide a great spot for afternoon reading or wine tasting while you wave at the horse and buggy crowd. The front porch is my favourite for morning coffee. Marrakech Mansion is in the heart of the Heritage district the perfect spot to stay when visiting our town.

What makes this house unique

One of the largest flower gardens in Niagara on the Lake. The old roses that were saved when we renovated the garden are spectacular. We have also planted hundreds of Daffodils, tulips and other spring bulbs the early season the Aconites were in the garden when I purchased it and have prospered, look for them in March as the snow is melting. The many perennials and flowering shrubs keep colour in the garden all summer. You can expect to see me cutting grass and gardening on Friday.

A Home from Home

  • 4 of 5

Marrakech Mansion was absolutely the perfect home from home. We all felt instantly comfortable and settled easily. The house was warm, the water hot, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, the sofas were plentiful! There was ample space for us all. We loved all the colours and the interior decorations and the flexibility the house offered us. There were lots of places for different conversations and games – even a gentle singalong with acoustic guitar – before curfew! I just wish we had had longer with your fascinating library and more time to spend in the beautiful garden!

We adored Niagara on the Lake! We saw the falls, close up from behind and above. We cycled, we rode horses, we visited St Georges Fort, Ice wine vineyards, shops, coffee shops, bars, fabulous ice cream shops. Our credit cards were well and truly flexed!!

Marrakech Mansion provided for all our needs and we now hold many good memories of our son's wedding and meeting our new Canadian family. Thank you for all your help with our requirements and providing such a great, comfortable family holiday home. We are looking forward to more visits to Canada in the future.

Great Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This past weekend we had a small group of ladies up to Niagara on the Lake for a bachelorette weekend. We had a lovely weekend at Marrakech Mansion. It was walking distance to all of the little shops and restaurants in town and close to the beautiful walkway down by the water - great view of Fort George! Close to a lot of the wineries for some tastings as well. The house was neat and clean and had all of the little necessities that we needed. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms so everyone could have their privacy, but then great common areas for relaxing and having meals. Definitely recommend this property and plan on making a trip back!

The Spencer's Family Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and kids and their better half and our grandson and dog stayed at this house family day weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this house. Lots of room for everyone to sleep even our grandson had his own room. We didn’t even have to bring a playpen and highchair as there was one at the house. 5 minutes walking distance to Main Street to go shopping. The weather wasn’t even cold outside and was a beautiful walk down to the lake. This house was gorgeous heritage home. Thank you Don for letting us all stay at Marrakech Mansion.

Great House and Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with two other couples enjoyed a wonderful New Year celebration at Marrakesh Mansion. The house is immaculate and such a great location. Park your car and walk everywhere. We hope to be back in the Spring or Summer to enjoy the outdoor space which looks as great as in interior. Highly recommended.

fabulous weekend

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Marrakech Mansion in October. The home looked great in pictures but far surpassed my expectations once I stepped inside this gorgeous heritage home. The grounds were beautifully kept and I was able to enjoy them as the weather was also perfect. There were 10 of us in total. We had ample room to move about without knocking into each other. I would highly recommend this home and will gladly stay again.

Marrakesh Mansion - Niagara On The Lake

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I plus 3 other couples stayed here for a weekend of great food and excellent wine.

The house was perfect for the large group. Incredibly comfortable, clean and full of character. Will hopefully get back here annually to do it again.
