Just a 14 minute drive from the brink of Niagara Falls!

Outside is viewed through 5 sets of double glass patio doors & 3 skylights.The "hoblet" is self catering with dishes, linens, towels and basic kitchen staples, e.g. tea, coffee, spices etc.. The green living roof is very special. Your 'yard' is a hardwood forest with a small stream running through. Beautifully landscaped out in the country yet only 15 minutes from the brink of the falls with emphasis on nature and good energy.

Your rental is completely private from the main house, has its own driveway with a delightful walk through the trees and past the 'circle of elements', a great fire pit with boulders encompassing that space.
Wonderful walks by the forest, ponds, & stream all help to create a very special energy in and around the 'cabin'. Your host, Petra, has received the Ambassador of Tourism Award from the Canadian government during her eight years as a professional tour guide in Niagara Falls, now Petra spends her free time looking after the donkeys and animals, and her guests.

About petra at Natures Energy Centre
I have over 8 years experience as a professional tour guide in Niagara Falls. And a proud recipient of the Ambassador of Tourism Award from the Canadian government. We share our 'space' with 3 dogs, and 7 equines, 2 pot belly pigs named Sheldon and Shpeck, and 2 little, sweet goats; Monty and George. We are passionate about animal welfare, and preserving nature. Having lived and worked in seven countries and traveled extensively, I believe my husband and I have come to understand what our national and international guest appreciate and expect in their travels. We look forwarding to helping you see all the Niagara Peninsula has to offer, there is so much more than just the falls. (Plus our tricks of the trade can help you save money, time and aggravation).
Why petra at Natures Energy Centre chose Niagara Falls
Avoid the hustle of hotels and the commercialism. Its all there for you when YOU want it, a short country drive away. Enjoy the energy of the forest and nature and at the same time your patronage helps provide the care and welfare of the rescued animals on site (as well as any other rescue situations that come our way). Be a part of it 'all' in so many different aspects than the everyday traveler experiences now a days. We are unique!

Peace & Serenity❤️
Oh where to begin! What a wonderful experience we had!! My husband, 7 year old son and myself stayed at the Hoblet for 5 glorious days. My son turned 7 on the trip.
We came to the Hoblet to do some touristy stuff but mostly for some R&R and to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and boy were we not disappointed!!
The Hoblet is truly a sanctuary. As soon as you enter through the gates you feel as if you’ve transformed into a different world. The donkeys will greet you as you come in. My favorite was Buddy but my husbands was Homey, the mammoth mule. Then as you enter the walkway into the Hoblet you are greeted by George and Monty the Rams and across the way from them are the pot bellied pigs and the newest members are also younger potbelly pigs! There is a fire pit for those nights that we wanted to do s’mores.
You will cross an adorable bridge to the Hoblet and be greeted by the most homey sitting area I’ve ever seen! The patio is covered and has several seating options.
Inside the Hoblet, an open concept living room, kitchen and the TV room. All the amenities you need. Although I did not cook, after all I’m on vacation too😉�, there were all the cooking utensils you would need. Skylights offered lots of sunlight and on those cold mornings the gas stove in the corner did a great job of warming us up.
The bedroom was spacious and the bed was extremely comfortable. The bath was perfect for our needs, to the stand up shower and the sauna it was just perfect!
Petra and Mush were the most gracious guest I’ve ever encountered!! I was having trouble with cell phone service and Petra offered a cell phone for the time I was there! She also left a gift for Mason’s birthday❤️. They were both there for any questions or concerns that we had which I could say were none as everything was covered before we even got there!
We are already talking about when we could get back there. They both do an amazing job with guests and their animals. I wish I could rate them more than 5 stars they deserve 10!
Petra & Mush - THANK YOU SO MUCH❤️❤️❤️❤️ Till next time “Eh” 😊�😊�😊�😊�
Weather did not cooperate .
The ambulance is more then enough to make up for the weather .!! We still enjoyed other attractions in the area.......The Butterfly Conservatory........Niagara on the lake.... and other interesting places.
Amazing and the Best!!
My first visit to the hoblet surpassed my expectations.
Somehow Petra and Mush seem to know what you want before even you know it . I couldn't have been more pleased with the service I received, or the beautiful, spacious place we stayed at. Just loved the sauna and animals. My boyfriend couldn't get his hands off the goats and donkeys as they were amazingly loving.
It was incredible. We sat outside on the cozy chairs and enjoyed the sunset and bird sounds. Petra and Mush made our anniversary the best memory.
We really did feel welcomed in a way that is very rare. This is one place I would come back to again, and again, and again. Thank you again Petra and Mush! ♥♥
Thanks so much for your kind review. We truly enjoyed having you both. Ahh to be young again! The future is bright with young adults such as yourselves coming up the ranks and taking charge! Hope to see you again....the fire pit is still waiting and I found the stargazing map book.
All the best to you both
We really enjoyed our time at the Hoblet. Petra is a great hostess and we felt very comfortable in the clean and cosy cottage. It was fun to see the animals greet us as we went out on our adventures. This is a good central location with a short drive to the various Niagara communities. We hope to return someday soon.
Beautiful Property and Amazing Host!
Our stay at The Hoblet was nothing short of wonderful! My husband and I appreciated being "disconnected" while still being within 10 minutes of major grocery stores. Our host, Petra, did everything in her power to ensure we had an amazing stay! Upon arrival, the property was VERY clean. Petra had even set out tons of flyers and info pamphlets for nearby activities. We reserved for 6 nights and felt like we had hardly any time for it all! During our stay, we had quite a bit of snow (not something we get back in Texas). Petra checked in with us to see if she can grab us anything from town since we haven't been used to driving in weather like this. The sauna was amazing and we appreciated the movie library for our nice, snowy nights in. I also cannot forget about George and Monty and all of the other animals! Every time our front door opened so we could leave, they would run up to the gate facing towards us so we could pet them and give them attention! Overall, we were highly impressed by The Hoblet and encourage everyone to stay here! We're already planning our next trip for Fall!!
As we rescue donkeys (and 'anyone' else in need, our latest arrival is Sheldon the pot belly pig) we find our guests enjoy the spirit of the animals. Included in a 2 (or more) night stay is a 'meet & greet' with the animals. One on one time and supervised by ourselves to introduce you to the animals that have found a home here. Groom them, hear their stories,and learn what is involved in taking in an animal. Many of our guests have commented on learning information about certain animals that has effected their decision on which animal would fit in their situation and which would not. Great photo time as well. This feature is totally optional. Some our guests barely have time to see all the sights in the area. When you check it just let us know if you would like to schedule a 'meet & greet'.. Also your hostess, Petra, is a certified hatha yoga instructor, if you wish to do a private class while here call for details, a 90 minute private one on one class for your party is $30.00 (Cad)
