About Maria Rosenkranz

We love historic homes and live in one ourselves. We have raised 4 children, 3 still at home and appreciate the need to have a place to just relax. We love the historical context of the John Misener Jr. house, located on the original battle of Lundy's Lane. Ralf, who is a finish carpenter has a passion for restoring historic homes, and has worked on historic homes mainly in NOTL. We want to make sure that those that come here have the choice to enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of the property or go to be a part of all the action not too far. Enjoy drinks on the front porch, or chill in the back yard while something is cooking on the BBQ.

Maria Rosenkranz purchased this house in 2011

Why Maria Rosenkranz chose Niagara Falls

John Misener Jr. was the son of the original carriage maker of Drummondville, who worked with his father in the trade. The home as been lovingly maintained by the next owners, and then ourselves. We gave the house all the up to date amenities while maintaining it's historic charm. The 1700 sq ft house with 220+ foot lot gives you lots of space to relax indoors or out. While staying, you will discover old and new; every room has something from the past that you can discover.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this house because of the historical importance, the unique and original architecture and the meandering gardens, outbuildings on the property. The people who lived here cared about the property and only sold it to us knowing that we would respect it's integrity. You can see the fireworks over the falls from the front, or you can walk 10 min to the falls to see them close up.

We could tell that the owners had their visitors in mind in everything they did in this house. We were right at home here and close to everything without having to be surrounded by crowds of people. It was the holiday weekend after all. We were very pleased with our choice.

Great location and friendly owners

  • 3 of 5

The location is perfect and the amenities in the house was more than expected. The owners were very friendly and informative and made you feel comfortable. The only problem that we had was that there were 5 adults and 4 kids and only one full bathroom, one TV and no clothes washer and dryer. Otherwise no complaints

Comfy Home

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious bedrooms and homey. Very clean and easy access to attractions. Owner met us at the home when we arrived (nice touch)! Only negative is no bathroom on the main floor and 2nd floor bathroom has a claw tub which makes the shower a little challenging for senior citizens.

Beautiful quaint old house close to the falls

  • 5 of 5

This house met all our needs and expectations! Plenty of towels and linens, kitchen stocked with plenty of pots and pans. The kids loved being able to pet Waldo, the outdoor cat, when he was around. Loved all the old books, knick knacks, and antiques all throughout the house.

There is a WeGo bus stop fairly close to the house (about a five minute walk), which made it easy to get to the Falls and Clifton Hill with ease. My one and only complaint was a bit of lack of communication about how to access the house when we arrived. No one was at the house when we arrived, so we had to call the number provided, and then had to wait 10 minutes for the son to arrive to give us an abbreviated tour and description. I was able to meet Maria briefly a couple of days later, and all was good. Overall, we had a great stay, and would definitely recommend this house!
