About Peter Koop

We have lived in Niagara-on-the-Lake for nearly 20 years and love the area - especially all the beautiful historic properties. Peter grew up in nearby Jordan Station, Ontario and Darla is a transplanted American, originally from Kansas.

~ A Tribute to Darla ~

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of my beautiful wife & soul-mate, and loving mother to our four children, Darla.

Her talent & passion for decorating, and her desire to please our guests with her gracious hospitality has elevated our business to the high standards that it holds today.

It is our intention to carry on her labour of love, upholding these high standards & warm hospitality…..the way Darla would have wanted us to.

We look forward to meeting you at the cottage!

Peter & the kids,

Sam, Cassie, Emily & Josh

Why Peter Koop chose Historic Old Town

We have always wanted to own a property in 'Old Town' Niagara-on-the-Lake because we love the architecture of historic houses and the lovely gardens in town.

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with this property because of the beautiful landscaping already in place and it's location on a quiet street so close to the lake.

Charming cottage in a beautiful area!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit to NOTL and the Falls! The cottage was a perfect base for exploring the region. It’s within a short walking distance of Old Town and all of the shopping/restaurants there as well as the waterfront. It’s a scenic 25 min drive to Niagara Falls via the parkway. Peter was very prompt in communicating and easy to work with. We are a family of 4 with 2 kids ages 11 & 8. I would highly recommend Hawsepiper if you will be staying in the area!

Tidy little cottage, recently upgraded.

  • 4 of 5

Great living area for hanging out and entertaining. Good location. Stayed in winter, but backyard has serious summer potential.

Loses a star due to creaky beds: needs new matresses.

Fantastic accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend staying here when you’re in NOTL. We spent 3 nights and 4 days at Peter's lovely cottage. It's a gorgeous home and absolutely spotless with a superb location - so close to everything (lovely restaurants, parks and sightseeing). Easy check in and everything we needed was available. Thanks Peter!

Cottage is located within walking distance of the Shaw Festival Theatre and many restaurants and shops in historic Niagara-on-the-Lake. Located one block from Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours and the marina. A short 2 block stroll to Queen's Royal park with a beautiful gazebo and short walking trail along Lake Ontario.
