3 bedroom, 3 bathroom private residence in Old Town
Built in 1816, Vanderlip Hutchings House is centrally located in the heart of historic Niagara-on-the-Lake, one block from Queen Street and steps to pubs, shops, restaurants, art galleries and the Shaw Theatre. North America’s oldest golf course is just five minutes away.
The house, built immediately after the War of 1812, underwent renovations that added two extensions to the original structure. It is presently 3000 square feet of modern luxurious living space, yet keeps many of the original features and all of its charm.
The main floor’s four original rooms retain the original working fireplaces.
On this level you have the spacious, well-furnished master bedroom, which has a king-size bed and modern en-suite bathroom.
The main floor gourmet kitchen is fully equipped for discerning chefs. It also has a large gathering/sitting area for your family or guests.
Immediately adjoining, but separate from the kitchen, is an elegant dining room (formerly the original “parlour”) with seating for eight. It has a gas fireplace.
The “Morning Room” next to the kitchen, is an inviting, light-filled space dominated by south-facing windows and is perfect for reading, relaxing or games. Outside the kitchen is a private outdoor bistro seating area, ideal for enjoying morning coffee and the local paper.
The second floor has two tastefully furnished bedrooms with period antiques and an ultra modern bathroom.
At the far end of the house is the Great Room, a large main-floor open area, with an imposing fireplace, generously furnished for entertaining, socializing, or relaxing. The Great Room has a queen sized pull out couch to accommodate two additional guests. Adjacent to the Great Room is a brand new 4 piece bathroom.
The house is surrounded by private lush gardens for your own enjoyment.

A special stay!
Very nicely appointed heritage home in the heart of Niagara on the Lake. Easy walking distance to downtown restaurants and shops. Very nice bedrooms and living areas. I can see why this home has won the accolades and awards that it has.
it was a beautiful well kept home, very rustic and we loved that we could walk almost anywhere . we were so nice and close to downtown and all the theatres were within walking distance
RESTFUL RETREAT IN A BEAUTIFUL HISTORICAL HOME
We searched on HomeAway.com for the perfect home for my sisters and spouses to have an entire house for our restful retreat. We enjoyed playing cards, enjoyed Sonny's piano recitals and leading our exercise classes, and snacking. We felt right at home, so relaxed. Everything in Jane and Chris' home was immaculate, elaborate as well as comfy all at the same time. For our shopping and eating adventures one block to Queen Street was so convenient. Definitely highly recommend to all. We had a wonderful time. Thank you Jane and Chris for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Gorgeous property, wonderful family time
My family stayed here over the Labor Day weekend, and had the most wonderful time. The house is beautiful, and much bigger than it looked in the pictures. Everything was very clean, and the home had lots of historic character. It's also centrally located in very short walking distance to the NOTL shops and restaurants. This was the perfect place to stay for a group of adults who want to vacation together. Not a single complaint!
Wonderful meeting house for friends and family
Property is somewhat historic, but very modern and comfortable.
We met 2 friends from different locations and we all had a bedroom and bathroom. There are eating areas in the house and outside (where we had our breakfasts).
Parking was easy as the driveway was roomy enough for three cars (one car behind the other two).
There were numerous sitting areas inside and out. A charming home.
Willow Cakes a nice bakery is a walk away as are the numerous shops on Queen Street, a block south. We walked to the theaters.
A very convenient location.
My two sisters along with our husbands enjoyed this beautiful historial home in Niagara on the Lake.
Thank you Chris and Jane for everything and we hope to be back!
Vanderlip Hutchings house is situated in the heart of the Old Town, steps to historic Queen Street where you will find theatres, pubs, restaurants, shops and spas. Also nearby are wineries, antique shops, hiking and biking trails, tennis courts and the golf club.
