About Janet Trogdon

But alas, my work has posted me abroad once again, so I am sharing my home-away-from-home with you! Please be my guest and make yourself comfortable! I would appreciate one thing though, if I might be so bold to ask? Please leave me a review on VRBO and tell me about your stay. I will enjoy Niagara-on-the-Lake vicariously through your postings!

I made my decision quickly to buy a home in Niagara-on-the-Lake and had a wonderful opportunity to purchase Gate Street Cottage. While it has good bones, it needed some TLC and I knew I was the one to bring this quaint cottage back to be a real gem. So through the tears, laughter and sweat, we managed to fully modernize the kitchens and bathrooms, tame the gardens, and uncovered all the treasures that Gate Street has to offer. My favourite thing to do is sit on the front veranda with a glass of wine and people watch while pretending to read a best seller!

Why Janet Trogdon chose Niagara-on-the-Lake

While I lived in Canada, Niagara-on-the-Lake was a favourite spot for me to reunite with my friends and family. Centrally located between two major airports, it was a convenient place to meet. Little did I know that in my first visit I would fall in love with this town! The feeling I have when I am here is one of joy, contentment and peace of mind. In any season there is a sense of wonderland about it!

What makes this house unique

Location is unbeatable for convenience to shopping, dinning, theatres, spa, parks and water front. Just park the car and walk everywhere!

Sit on the front veranda and watch the horse drawn carriages go by while sipping your morning coffee or that last glass of wine for the evening!

The charm of yesteryear with all the comforts of modern day amenities makes Gate Street Cottage the perfect get-away place for six people. The master bedroom on the main floor has a set of super twins that can be made into a comfortable King bed. This home is perfect for couples, multi-generation families or the best friends get together. 3 bathrooms add to the convenience but the claw foot soaker tub has your name on it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the homely fell to this house and so well shocked with kitchen items. House was very cleaned and organized!



Such a beautiful town, the flowers are just so wonderful and the shops are lovely. Had a lovely time with our daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandchildren.



We can't wait to return to Gate Street Cottage!

Gate st house

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay on Gate Street. The house was beautiful. Lots of curb appeal. Definitely functional for my husband, myself and our 2 teenage granddaughters. Nice interior. Very close to one of the main streets in the area. The only negatives were the spotty wi-fi in the house and we had preferred a king in the downstairs king suite. Easy to book and really a nice place to stay.

Gate Street Cottage - Excellent location for girls weekend in Niagara on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

For the second time, I selected Gate Street Cottage as headquarters for our girls weekend in Niagara on the Lake. The location is ideal and there is enough space to park 3 cars. (though they say only 2....that would be true if all SUV's) We parked the cars when we arrived on Friday afternoon and did not get back into them until time to leave on Sunday. The house is close to the lake and also the very busy main street though none of the sounds from the main street seem to have a negative impact on the peace of the house and yard. The house is clean and is perfect for 6 girls with queen room, king room and main floor twin/king room....all en suite. The open concept of the main floor is perfect for keeping everyone together while preparing meals. The kitchen is well appointed with all tools needed for meal preparation and presentation. Having a grocery store, bakeries, shopping, restaurants and entertainment within walking distance of the house is priceless. We will definitely return in the near future.

Gate Street Greatness

  • 5 of 5

What a great location. Our trip was two couples (50+) so the house was perfect. Went to the grocery store across the street to have some supplies in the fridge for the weekend. When we arrived Friday afternoon the car was parked until we left on Sunday. Everything was within walking distance, the shops, restaurants, horse & carriage rides, bicycle rentals down the Niagara River fantastic. Spent hours sitting on the front porch enjoying drinks and the activities on Queen Street. Would definitely return to this location.

Ideal

  • 5 of 5

My wife and son, daughter-in-law, and daughter rented this house to use as our "headquarters" for a weekend during the recent annual Ice Wine Festival. The location was perfect - very close to the main events on Queen Street, and to several good restaurants. The house itself is very clean and well-maintained, and the fact that every bedroom had its own private bathroom was great. The kitchen was well-equipped, and the house was very comfortable in all respects. We would definitely return in the future.

Great house with great location to town

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great. I have rented over 30 places through HomeAway and VRBO. Gate Street Cottage was my favorite! The quality of the furnishings were great. The location was very convenient to the shops and restaurants on or near Queen Street. We especially liked morning coffee on the back porch.

Eric's quick response to the Wi-Fi issue was much appreciated.

Our experience with Niagara Holiday Rentals was fabulous! Can't wait to return.

Perfect location, comfortable house

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of three couples, good friends, have been going to NOTL every other year for some years. Gate St. Cottage could not be better located: close to almost everything including a very convenient grocery store. My one hesitation is that the bathroom of the bedroom on the main floor ends up being the shared toilet. The kitchen is convenient but can use more dish towels and cleaning supplies. All things considered, we would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Hi! Gate Street Cottage is over 100 years old and had a complete interior renovation about 6 or 7 years ago. Its hard to get all the modern conveniences in a remodel, but we were happy that we could fit in 3 spacious bathrooms and open up the living area so that it was open concept to the kitchen and dining area. We do our best to make sure the kitchen is equipped, please give us a call the next time and we'll come by and make sure you have adequate supplies! take care, and look forward to your next visit! Janet

Gate Street Cottage is one of the most popular vacation homes in town! Why you ask? Location, charm, modern amenities, front porch, gardens and a bathroom for everyone! This is a fully modernized 100 year old cottage that is just a few steps from Queen Street, the main shopping, theatre, dining, parks and river area. The grocery store is almost at the end of your drive way! If you are a shopper then you can shop until you almost drop because your home-away-from-home is just a few steps away! Love the theatre; you can even walk there in your high heeled shoes! That’s how close it is! Now you are probably thinking maybe to close? Well this is a small town and not much excitement happens here other than the clip clop of the horse drawn carriages going by! This quiet quaint town is safe and charming and that is the way we like to keep it!

Not a shopper or a theatre buff? Then you still have lots to do at your door step! At the end of the street, literally a 2 minute walk is the oldest golf course in North America, Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club – better book your T-off times now! Also at the end of the street is a 5 star spa. The dining is amazing too, from chefs staring on the Food Network, to local family style dining, to shopping local at the all the food boutique shops and cooking it back at your vacation home, this is a foodie paradise!

Enter into Gate Street cottage from the covered front veranda and you step into a bright comfortable and spacious living area. The big screen TV is seldom used! The Living area is open to the the dining and fully modern well equipped kitchen! This is a shot gun style home because it’s a straight shot from the front door to the back! Go out the back door from the kitchen and there is a beautiful garden complete with patio furniture, deck and a bbq/grill! Also on the main floor is a beautiful huge bedroom with en suite. This is a room that has super twin beds that can be converted into a comfy cozy King bed. Main floor laundry for those who feel compelled to do laundry on holiday – well at least its convenient for you and you won’t miss any of the action while doing your chores!

Upstairs offers the two other bedrooms both with ensuites. The front bedroom has a King bed, a lovely sitting area and lots of space to move around! The bath room has a stand alone shower, and a claw foot tub, is perfect to relax in and soak your cares away! The other bedroom is a luxurious Queen bed with antique cabinet for the sink and a tub/shower combination.

We offer the luxury in bed linens so that you can get a wonderful relaxed sleep which is the perfect end to your day of exploring and enjoying this town while living like a local!

The gardens are professionally cared for and we have some herbs planted for you. Everything about Gate Street is specially designed, planned and done with you in mind. All you have to do is book it!
