About Janet Trogdon

We are a young family who lives in Ancaster and loves coming to Niagara-on-the-lake. We love coming all times of the year as it is so beautiful at Cabernet House in any weather. Our children love coming and running around the backyard. While we sit on the deck and bbq/grill us something to eat.

We love walking to the park or just walking down Queen Street looking in the store windows.

We purchase this property as we love Niagara-on-the-lake. We love coming to Cabernet House and just relaxing or in some case I come here to study. No matter what the reason we love coming here and reconnecting as a family.

What makes this house unique

We love Cabernet House as it is perfect for our young family to grow up in and have lasting memories of Cabernet House in Niagara-on-the-lake.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our stay here at Cabernet House. Weather really helped us enjoy the beautiful yard and use of the BBQ. House was very clean upon arrival, beds comfy and nice to have a bed on the main level to accommodate our mom!

Awesome location, lots of space and great place for our dog

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the time we spent at Cabernet House. You can walk just about anywhere and there is a great bakery just one block away. The fenced in yard is perfect if you are traveling with a pet. It may not be super fancy, but everything was clean and comfortable and Janet was very easy to work with and pleasant.

Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Cabernet house. It was very clean and had everything we needed. It was within walking distance from the downtown shops, park, restaurants and water front. I found it very easy to book this property and the booking staff were very helpful.

Wonderful NOTL Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our reunion group of 7 found Cabernet House to be a great place to hang out and a convenient spot to enjoy beautiful Niagara on the Lake. The lovely, private back yard was a favorite spot, and we ate most of our meals at the table there. The kitchen was well equipped, and it was so nice having paper towels, TP , laundry detergent and other basics to start out with! We had plenty of room to gather in the living room, and the bedrooms were very comfortable. The whole house was very clean, too! We would definitely recommend Cabernet House to anyone coming to stay in NOTL!

Perfect for our weekend in Canada!

  • 5 of 5

Cabernet House was perfect spot for our family weekend in Niagara-on-the-lake. The house is very clean, well equipped, and quite comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised that the rooms were all larger than they appear in photos. Our party of 8 had plenty of space in which to hang out. Although, we didn't stay in too much as the town is so lovely with so much to do! I especially appreciated the conveneience of allowing our two night stay (but wish I could have stayed longer!).

This property is a great rental value, given the easy access to shops, restaurants, parks and bike trails, in addition to just being a nice, well-kept property. I also loved that this house came stocked with so many basics like toilet paper and dishwasher detergent - that saved us a trip to the local grocery store (as we ate dinner out for every meal). I would definitely recommend this rental to my friends and family!

*one small warning - be careful of the varying floor levels downstairs. I tripped once or twice in the doorway to the kitchen/back bedroom area, but eventually we all got accustomed to it and didn't have any problems. Older/renovated houses are just like that sometimes (it's kind of charming I think).

A Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

5 of us stayed 3 days for the end of the wine festival.... the house was very close to downtown Niagara-On-The-Lake and also close to many wineries in the region. It brought back some memories of staying in the neighbourhood with with relatives as a preteen. All in all it was a great time!!!!!

Wonderful Home away from home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We all had a wonderful time here. All the comforts of home. Close enough to walk down to main streets or take in the Shaw Festival, if you are up for a stroll. Nice neighborhood and quiet residential area. Would definitely stay here again.
