Property description

Cozy, comfortable and super clean two bedroom cottage located in picturesque, historic Niagara-on-the-Lake. Pugwash Cottage is sited in The Olde Town in a quiet, well treed neighbourhood offering a very relaxed and peaceful setting that is still only a ten minute walk from the downtown attractions.

Plenty of secure off street parking is available and the cottage sits on a large lot offering a spacious , private, rear garden and deck area which is ideal for recharging after your exploring expeditions and holiday activities. A large BBQ is provided for those who enjoy outside cooking and entertaining.

Though originally a summer cottage a later rear addition gives much more space than appears from road. All the rooms are relatively spacious as you can see from the pictures. A comfortable sun porch adjoins the well equipped kitchen and offers a quiet place to read, discuss your holiday plans or take a snooze! A cosy dining room is perfect for those who like to dine at home and take a break from restaurant fayre and prices!

Guests appreciate the quiet location for a great night's sleep in comfortable beds with premium mattresses. Both bedrooms having easy access to a washroom. The larger of these has a bathtub and shower while the smaller is a two piece which has access to the laundry room.

The living room is spacious, comfortable and inviting, offering a great place to relax, plan your next adventure or enjoy the Big Screen TV and Home Theater System. A patio door offers direct access to the rear deck, garden area and BBQ.

If you are tired of the Ritz and prefer the comfort and freedom of a home away from home you will love Pugwash Cottage!

Location is everything!!!

All major attractions a short walk or drive away.

Niagara on the Lake has it all. The world class Shaw Festival is a key attraction and offers a great seasonal venue for most tastes. The town is great fun for shopping and enjoying the bar/bistros and restaurants. The Prince of Wales is a classic attraction with fine dining, comfortable elegant pub and relaxed outside tables to watch the world go by and catch the horse and carriage action! For avid pub lovers The Angel Inn just off Queen St is a gem!

New to the area are three superb micro breweries all offering a wonderful range of locally brewed delights.

The Niagara on The Lake Golf Club is the oldest in North America and has a wonderful club house restaurant and patio with superb views of the lake and Niagara River.It is open to all.

Over one hundred wineries are close by for your enjoyment and both motor coach tours and bicycle trips are close by.

Cycle rentals and e-bikes are just around the corner and the whole area is a treat for all levels of cyclists with the magnificent Niagara River Parkway a key scenic ride with Niagara Falls about 18 miles away. A must see of course.

My favourite local spot is The Willow Bakery and Bistro just around the corner from the cottage on Mary St. Wonderful place to enjoy a coffee and a fabulous bakery treat!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Hi! Thank you for visiting my listing. I acquired Pugwash Cottage in 2008 and have really enjoyed my semi-retirement completing extensive upgrading here and on my pride and joy..the boat of course! I personally welcome my guests and make sure they are comfortably settled in and oriented to the local scene! A great vacation starts with a special greeting and I look forward to meeting you at Pugwash Cottage! P.s The name comes from the 60's cartoon character Captain Pugwash...A grand old character ideal for lovers of sail and sea!

Why the Owner Chose Historic Old Town, Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON, Canada:
The pictures tell it all! This area is as good as it gets and offers so much for all ages and interests. The Niagara Gorge is as spectacular as the Falls themselves and Niagara On The Lake is the prettiest town I have yet visited in Canada...period. Sailing and motorcycling are my good weather passions and this area is ideal for both! You will have to look long and hard to find a prettier region and Pugwash Cottage gives you the ideal base from which to explore.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You will find Pugwash Cottage has an excellent location in all respects...two minutes walk to an excellent mini plaza with bank, convenience store, restaurant and a bakery / bistro that is 'simply the best'! A ten minute stroll puts you in town and another five has you looking across the lake to the unique skyline of Toronto. Everything you need is a pleasant walk away...so park the car, forget the traffic and just enjoy the change of pace that is Niagara on The Lake.!.
