  • Beautiful property, amazing staff, great location!

    "We had a 5 night stay at this property and couldn’t be happier. The property is beautiful, the lake is huge and impressive, and the privacy is hard to rival. We stayed in the small but charming Lakehouse cabin and we barely saw or heard the other guests. (The property is private but not all individual cabins enjoy the same level of privacy.) You couldn’t get closer to the water without being in it and the view was magnificent! We saw loons, ducks, turtles, and otters from our kitchen table. Even the bad weather was amazing – watching a thunderstorm cross the lake from the comfort of a cozy cabin was exciting and memorable. During the sunny times we really enjoyed the free access to a canoe, motor boat, fire pit, and an amazing wild blueberry patch (fresh picked blueberries for breakfast every morning, yay!). Our well-behaved dog was welcome to roam leash-free (hard to find in the resort cabin world!), and we could leave him in the cabin for an hour or two when we went out on the water. Not everything was perfect. The paddles for the canoe are in a sorry state. Out of 4 paddles 1 is useable, 2 are broken, and 1 is sized for a child. (This problem was solved when caretaker Doug went above and beyond to offer his personal property – his own paddle – to us.) Also, the otherwise well stocked kitchen includes only table knives, not paring knives suitable for cutting vegetables nor steak knives suited to the T-bones we cooked on the convenient propane BBQ. But these small inconveniences were minor, overall it was pretty awesome. The best part about this property is the caretaker Doug. He has this magical ability to be completely unobtrusive (most of the time we marveled at the quiet and privacy), while also being there exactly when you need him. We only saw Doug when we needed something. He would appear out of thin air right when we required help dumping rainwater from the canoe or finding more gas for the motorboat. Once we mentioned casually that we planned to roast marshmallows in the outdoor stone stove in a few minutes. 10 minutes later we walked over to find that Doug had lite a fire for us, brought chairs over, and set everything up. It is hard to have privacy and be pampered at the same time, yet Doug manages it. We also enjoyed the surrounding area – good hiking trails in Blue Lake Provincial Park (6 minutes’ away), and a BBQ joint less than 5 minutes’ drive away. After a long day outside it was great to enjoy BBQ! K & M Breward"

  • Great Location

    "This house was very comfortable for out group of six. We were able to view the Christmas candlelight walk from the front porch. The cottage was in the perfect location to allow us to enjoy the activities that we had planned for the weekend. Don, the owner was friendly and informative. He always responded quickly to my emails. I highly recommend this cottage as a great place to stay in NOTL."

  • Butterfly cottage review

    "Butterfly cottage is a nice and beautiful cottage for a romantic getaway. The cottage is nice and clean, with a private and colourful backyard. Imaging a swing under a big pear tree, swinging in a flower shower. Wifi is a bonus, and within walking distance to the core of "Niagara on the lake". Two minutes walk to the lake, nice neighbourhood. I would definitely recommend butterfly cottage!"

  • Girls Winery Weekend

    "This was a wonderful property. Clean, comfortable, and updated in all the right places. Perfect for our group of 6 girls. We spent a lot of our time sitting on the huge front porch and just enjoying the beautiful and calm surroundings. It was just a stones throw away from Queen St. for restaurants and shopping. We all agreed that we would rent this place again so I'm sure we'll be back!"
