About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Location, location. This charming, renovated bungalow offers one of the very best locations in Niagara on the Lake. Just 1 block from beautiful Queens Royal Park on Lake Ontario and 1 block from the many stores and great restaurants on Queen Street. See: for more details.

This bright, spacious bungalow offers three bedrooms and one full newly renovated bathroom. The cottage has a modern, fully equipped, "open concept" kitchen with adjoining dining room. The living room, with its large comfy couch and wood-burning fireplace make it an ideal place to relax. The bathroom has been newly remodeled. A wide porch on the front is an ideal place to watch the horse carriages passing on the street while enjoying a glass of wine from one of the many nearby wineries. It is pet friendly (dogs only please) with an enclosed yard.

A private, stone patio with table, offers an outdoor entertaining/eating area equipped with a BBQ. The newly renovated home is just a short walk to all 3 Shaw theaters, golf course, marina and historic Fort George. Niagara Falls is just short 20 min drive or bike ride along the Niagara Parkway bike path. The Town Cottage is regularly inspected and has a license from the town. Please see our site at for 2 videos of the cottage and what to do in the area.

The National Geographic Traveler Magazine just rated Niagara-on-the-Lake as one of the top “Historic Destinations” in Canada and number 52 in the world !
The survey was put together by a panel of 280 well traveled experts.
Their report states in part: “Niagara-on-the –Lake may be the most beautiful small city in Canada. Quite touristy, but it has done a great job of preserving its charm….”

The Town Cottage is a perfect spot to enjoy historic Niagara-on-the-Lake, any time of year. Everyone loves the cottage!

Niagara on the Lake just a few miles from Niagara Falls is called the prettiest small town in Canada. It is steeped in history and historic buildings. The Town Cottage is located in the very heart of the historic old town just one block from the main street and one block from Queens Royal Park on Lake Ontario. The perfect location to walk into the old town and access wonderful and unique restaurants, wineries and the many unique stores of Queen Street.

There are 3 live theaters in walking distance from the cottage - world class live theater. As well the town offers jazz concerts, classical music, outdoor concerts,many wineries, historic sites, off-leash park, outdoor community swimming pool in the summer, helicopter rides, horse and buggy rides, nature trails, behind the scenes theater tours,, tennis courts, and Luxurious spas -3 within walking distance, where you can pamper yourself, have a massage, manicure, pedicure etc.

Take a Whirlpool Jet Boat ride up the mighty Niagara River, a real thrill ! Cycle rentals are available, they’ll deliver them to the house. Cycle along the Niagara Parkway, a beautiful ride all along the river, and its very safe for cyclists. The horse and buggy rides will pick you up at the house if you like, or you can start your ride outside the Prince of Wales Hotel, which is just a minutes walk from the house.

Take time to walk around the town, off the main street, you’ll see beautiful homes, English style gardens and be in awe at the variety of flowers and plants. No matter what time of year its just the prettiest place to visit. The town gardens are in flower earlier in the Spring.

We have thousands of acres of vineyards where different varieties of grapes are grown, producing world-class wines and a specialty of the area ‘Ice Wine’. This region is also the fruit basket of Ontario growing, raspberries, blueberries, peaches, apricots, pears, apples, and vegetables etc. You can stop at one of the many fruit stands by the side of the road and pick up some wonderful locally grown produce.

Join us for all these wonderful activities and many more!

Why the Owner Chose Historic Old Town, Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON, Canada:
A wonderful town for visitors to see and enjoy the best of Canada! We live nearby and love to provide personal service for our guests. Many rentals in town are owned by absentee owners who can't provide this personalized service.

The Town Cottage was recently redecorated and up-graded. It's warmth and coziness combined with the fantastic historic location, make it a very special home. Most visitors come for the world class live theatre at the Shaw Festival. Others to tour the interesting variety of wieries and excellent restaurants. Still others to stroll and take in the sights in this beautiful historic village.
