About Janet Trogdon

We bought Goodwin Cottage in 2013 as a vacation home and love coming to Niagara on the Lake!

After staying at Goodwin Cottage and feeling relax and ready to go back to work.We decided to share it with others. So come and stay with us at Goodwin Cottage!!

As we live in the Toronto area and enjoy our time at Goodwin Cottage. as it is our oasis away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life in Toronto.

Janet Trogdon purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Janet Trogdon chose Niagara-on-the-Lake

We purchase Goodwin Cottage as a get away from our busy lives in Toronto.

When we come to our cottage in Niagara on the Lake we relax and reconnect with our family.

There is so much to do here in Niagara on the Lake from jet boat tours to Shaw Theater. Or just a walk along the river to recharge our batteries.

What makes this cottage unique

What we fell in love with as soon as we seen Goodwin Cottage was the rustic and serenity of where the cottage is located in Niagara on the Lake.

The minute we step inside Goodwin Cottage we felt welcome like this is our home away from home.

When we went out in the back yard we loved everything about it from the patio area to the woods.

Beautiful private back yard with patio and when you are in the back yard at Goodwin Cottage you feel like you are in your own private forest. Very quiet neighbour hood. Not much traffic you can sit outside or go for a walk along the streets to the river which is less then 10 minute walk from Goodwin Cottage.

Lovely girls weekend at Goodwin Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Goodwin Cottage was the perfect place for a relaxing girls weekend away at Niagara-on-the-Lake. The cottage is nicely furnished and very cosy with a back yard and a nice little patio to sit. Check in was so easy as there were no keys just a door code which made it nice and simple. The location is perfect, in a quiet street near the water and just a short stroll into old town. Janet was great and gave some great suggestions on things to do and even left us some wine tasting vouchers. I would definitely recommend Goodwin Cottage and would love to stay here again.
