Very walkable community! Lots of trails and paths to follow.

Amazing sunsets at the Ryerson Park, just around the corner. Take a blanket, a foot ball and some books! Kids would love to hear a storey under the golden rays of the setting sun.

About: Butterfly Cottage named after the butterfly-friendly gardens, is a very special place for our family that lets us take a break from our fast-paced lives and relax…we hope it works for you too. A quiet, oasis just 12 minutes leisurely walk to the Old Town stores, coffee shops and restaurants. Located just a block from the Lake this cottage was designed by a local famous architect named Victor Tarnoy the cottage is an open concept, light and spacious cottage with glorious cathedral ceilings. Our family hope you enjoy your stay at Butterfly cottage and enjoy all that Niagara-on-the-Lake area and the surrounding area has to offer. Your hosts at Butterfly Cottage.

Why Historic Old Town, Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON, Canada:
If you judged Niagara-on-the-lake by its size, you wouldn’t think a community could pack this much fun in a space so small. Old Town is a unique district within the community, an easy walk to all that this town has to offer, boutiques, antiques, dining, wine, groceries, theatre, golf, bike and walking trails, plus more! Butterfly Cottage is a quiet, oasis just 12 minute leisurely walk from heart of it all!!! It just doesn’t get any better. We recently purchased Butterfly Cottage named after the butterfly-friendly gardens because of its unique style of architecture, open, spacious and light rooms and a wonderful location just a block from the lake and oldest golf course in North America. We want to share the experience of living like a local. All year around, enjoy world class theatre, gourmet dining prepared by renowned chefs, 5 star spas and internationally award winning wineries. This historic, walkable community features diverse architectural styles, interesting historic buildings and markers plus historic Fort Henry, beautiful scenery and homes that have the most spectacular gardens regardless of the season!! Whether blooming in spring or blanketed in snow, the landscape is stunning. Whether you like to hike, bike, sail, kayak, roller blade, cross country ski, or take a leisurely stroll, it is all available at our front door! Niagara-on-the-Lake is located between two major international airports. There is also a local airport just minutes outside of town. Nearby (but not to close!!) are major highways that make travel easy. We are within a day’s drive of over 100 Million people!! It is perfect for family or friends to travel together and skip the hassle of security at the airports. You can travel in the comfort of your own vehicle! Getting to Niagara-on-the-Lake is easy; leaving is hard!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Butterfly Cottage provides proximity to the Old Town – just 12 minutes walk. Enjoy shopping for antiques, groceries, wine, baked goods, that special dress, special teas, Scottish treats, Irish linens, leather purses, you name it the shops have it! Take a romantic ride in a horse drawn carriage, walk by the river, cycle to the wineries and enjoy the world renowned Shaw Festival theatre. Only a few minutes stroll to Queen Street or go in the opposite direction and an even shorter stroll takes you to the shores of Lake Ontario and the most glorious sunsets! The beds are carefully made with beautiful white fresh cotton sheets and snuggle in for a good night’s sleep on our high quality mattresses. The kitchen boasts shiny new stainless steel appliances (fridge, stove, dishwasher, and microwave), plenty of counter space for preparing wonderful meals with the abundance of fresh locally grown produce plus help yourself to our fresh juicy blackberries from the garden. Our antique dining table easily seats 10 people and 8 can be seated for outdoor eating on the wrap-around porch listening to the trickling pond. The separate main floor laundry facilities include washer and dryer, iron and ironing board (laundry soap provided)! The completely renovated bathrooms both have showers and baths along with soaps, shampoos and towels. The open living, dining room and kitchen allows you to mix and mingle. The back yard is lovingly landscaped, simple but elegant. If you want privacy, the back yard offers a pleasant place to relax. If you love people watching, then the front porch is the place for you! Any season is the perfect season to stay at Butterfly Cottage! Amazing outdoor space can be enjoyed rain, shine, or snow! Enjoy spring’s fragrant blossoms, warm summer evenings, spectacular fall colour and cozy up by the wood burning fire after enjoying a winter wine event! Experience all the charm, comfort and charisma Butterfly Cottage has to offer!
