Niagara Falls Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, sleeps 4 (2 adults,2 kids)

Just a 14 minute drive from the brink of Niagara Falls! Our 'hoblet' has the look of a woodsy cabin, but is spacious and modern. 600 sq. feet in total with a large studio living room, separate bedroom and a bathroom with a built in 2 seater far infrared sauna. Outside is viewed through 5 sets of double glass patio doors & 3 skylights.Your retreat includes breakfast, via a lightly stocked kitchen and all the ammenities. The green living roof is very special. Your 'yard' is a hardwood forest with a small stream running through. Beautifully landscaped out in the country yet only 15 minutes from the brink of the falls with emphasis on nature and good energy. On site and for your viewing is our equine rescue, home to 7 donkeys, 1 mule, 2 pot belly piggies, and 2 wonderful, friendly little goats, (2 dogs). Your rental is completely private from the main house, has its own driveway with a delightful walk through the trees and past the 'circle of elements', a great fire pit with boulders encompassing that space.

Wonderful walks by the forest, ponds, & stream all help to create a very special energy in and around the 'cabin'. Your host, Petra, has received the Ambassador of Tourism Award from the Canadian government during her eight years as a professional tour guide in Niagara Falls, now Petra spends her free time looking after the donkeys and animals, and her guests. Please see our website for more photos of the 'space' and the surrounding area, we look forward to meeting you!

For our guests staying 2night or more, a wonderful one hour 'Meet and Greet the Animlas' is included with your stay. Spend some one on one time with your favorite donkey. The emphasis is on nature here enjoy the views and the animals.

About The Owner

I have over 8 years experience as a professional tour guide in Niagara Falls. And a proud recipient of the Ambassador of Tourism Award from the Canadian government. We share our 'space' with 2 dogs, and 7 equines, 2 pot belly pigs named Sheldon and Shpeck, and 2 little, sweet goats; Monty and George. We are passionate about animal welfare, and preserving nature. I speak conversational Spanish and German. Having lived and worked in seven countries, and having travelled extensively I believe my husband and I have come to understand what our national and international guest would appreciate and expect in their travels. We look forwarding to helping you see all the Niagara Peninsula has to offer, there is so much more than just the falls. (Plus our tricks of the trade can help you save money, time and aggravation).

Why The Owner chose Niagara Falls

Avoid the hustle of hotels and the commercialism. Its all there for you when YOU want it, a short country drive away. Enjoy the energy of the forest and nature and at the same time your patronage helps provide the care and welfare of the rescued animals on site (as well as any other rescue situations that come our way). Be a part of it 'all' in so many different aspects than the everyday traveler experiences now a days. We are unique!

What makes this cabin unique

For more photos, and a 'feel' for what we have created please ask about our website - truly a retreat, yet all the modern comforts and facilities, and so much more! Even the locals come for a visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Arriving at The Hoblet was exactly what we needed. We loved the feeling of having our own little space nestled in the woods. A little bridge and walkway with animals to greet us for our stay and early rise. Having an Infrared Sauna in the comfort of our own room was a special treat to say the least. The circle of stones surrounding a fire pit was an excellent way to wind down our night. This is a very beautiful place to relax, unwind, detox and be in nature. I would recommend a stay at The Hoblet to anyone interested in doing just that. Glad we found it and will be staying here again the next time we are in Niagara.

"The Hoblet" equals serene get-away

"The Hoblet" equals serene get-away
  • 5 of 5
Fourteen months ago we booked 'The Hoblet' after finding it on VRBO and falling in love with the concept through the photos and description. As the months passed we found our excitement building in anticipation of our week in Canada and often wondered if our anticipation would be met with disappointment or satisfaction. As soon as we arrived and saw the setting which was exactly as had been described and depicted in the photos and then were met by Petra we knew there was no disappointment in our future - only over-the-top satisfaction as we experienced all 'The Hoblet' and Niagara had to offer. Petra and Mush were the ultimate hosts and provided much needed information about the area. We ventured out each day to take in the sights and sounds and tastes of the region but our favorite part of the day was 'coming home' to 'The Hoblet'. The tranquil setting was just perfect and we loved to sit out on the patio and just relax. The donkeys and mules and goats and pot bellied pigs were all so much fun and we were amazed that we never got a whiff of any of them even when sitting right by them at the fire pit! Amazing! The pot bellied pigs kept us laughing the whole week we were there - too funny. As far as activites in the area the list could go on and on but we loved Niagara Glen for the hiking, the Butterfly Conservatory and gardens for the up close encounters with the butterflies and the beautiful flowers, Horse Shoe Falls has to be seen to be believed, the walk down Niagara Gorge (on the American side) was amazing and the sheer number of wineries in the area made for some wonderful road trips each day. If you go to Niagara on the Lake don't miss the little Irish cafe behind the Irish linen shop as it was very good - try the scone with fresh strawberries! Keiths in Fonthill was another not to miss eatery as much for the food as for the friendly waitresses! And if you are in Niagara on a Friday night don't miss the fish fry at Rolling Hills Golf Course in Niagara - great fish and fun people.
So after fourteen months of waiting and anticipating our Niagara vacation more than lived up to our anticipation and we would do it again tomorrow if we could. All thanks to 'The Hoblet', Petra , Mush and 'The Gang' - oh, and Niagara Falls too!

A unique and rare gem!

  • 5 of 5
To celebrate my husband's birthday we spent three special nights in September at "The Hoblet". When we arrived Petra greeted us with a very warm welcome and many helpful tips for visiting local attractions which are all within easy driving distance including The Falls, Niagara-on-the-Lake, the Welland Canal, Crystal Beach and much, much more. We enjoyed seeing the sites but, for us, the highlight was kicking back and enjoying the incredible tranquility and healing energy of this wonderful sanctuary. It was so special to get up early in the morning and enjoy eating breakfast outside in the fresh air surrounded by beautiful woodlands and all the amazing animals. George and Monty, the goats, provided constant entertainment!

The cabin itself, with its living roof, bark covered walls, skylights and large glass sliding doors, seems to be a living, growing part of nature. Everywhere outside there are unique accents and features such as archways, bridges, a pond, toadstool carvings, etc. which makes every view attractive and interesting.

Best of all, Hoblet owners, Petra and Mush, allow their guests an opportunity to enjoy, feed, observe and commune with the amazing family of rescue animals they have opened their hearts and home to.

We will definitely be recommending "The Hoblet" to friends and family!

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We came from the UK to this lovely well kept accommodation with the nicest people running it and animals that are exceptionally loved and cared for. The Hoblet is a once in a lifetime find which is close to everything including the falls and Niagara on the lake. Petra is a mind of information on the local area and is very welcoming. We all loved the animals and being able to spend time with them feeding and grooming. I even saw three deer just walking around the back of the Hoblet early one morning. A real nice place to stay which was home from home and nice to come back to every evening. I would recommend the hoblet to all and I felt extremely sad leaving there. Would love to come back again!
Thank you Petra and Mush for a thoroughly fantastic holiday and one we will not forget ever!

Beautiful and fun

I loved every minute of my stay at the Hoblet. It is a safe and enjoyable environment for children. Our hosts were wonderful. We appreciated returning to the countryside after our visits of the different attractions in the area. I recommend the Hoblet to anyone who likes nature, animals and having a few quiet moments during their vacation.

My husband, 10 year old daughter and I stayed at the "Hoblet" for five wonderful nights including Easter. From the moment that we arrived, we knew that we had found a hidden gem. We were greeted with fresh flowers and Easter treats for my daughter. The "Hoblet" was warm and inviting, just as it appears in the photos. We loved the proximity to both Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake and plan to return to use it as a springboard for adventures in other Ontario destinations like Port Colbourne and Toronto.

I can't say enough good things about Petra and Mush. In addition to keeping the "Hoblet" in excellent condition, Petra goes above and beyond to ensure that their guests have an excellent time. Based on her suggestions, we visited the local (and exceptional) Farmer's Market, changed our itinerary to avoid Easter weekend closures, enjoyed a wonderful Easter brunch at Element on the Falls, visited the free museum at The Welland Canals Centre and saw a ship navigate through Lock 3 on their way through the St. Lawrence Seaway System. As advertised, it's as close as you'll get to a Great Lakes Ship unless you're a sailor! Without Petra's sound advice, we would not have thought about how the weather would impact our view from the Skylon Tower. Luckily, she told us that in inclement weather we wouldn't be able to see the Falls. We changed our reservation at the revolving dining room from a predicted rainy day to a beautiful clear one allowing us exceptional views of both the Horseshoe and American Falls as well as the whole Niagara area.

In addition to all of the attractions that we visited away from the "Hoblet", the animals at the "Hoblet" are an attraction themselves. My daughter couldn't wait to return each night so that she could feed the donkeys, mule, goats and pot belly pigs. The meet and greet with the animals was one of the highlights of the trip for her and we all enjoyed being greeted enthusiastically by George, Monty and Cuddles whenever we walked by their enclosure.

If I were asked what is the one thing that we enjoyed most about the "Hoblet" I would say its proximity to all of the numerous attractions that the Niagara area has to offer and its distance from them. Staying at the "Hoblet" allows you the absolute peace to rest and recharge and yet is just a short ride from so many exciting adventures. It's truly the best of both worlds. We can't wait to visit again!

Owner's Response: How humbling, a sincere thank you for your kind review. We enjoyed having "the family" for Easter. Mush and I truly hope that our guests enjoy Niagara (and the hoblet) to the full extent. It makes it all worthwhile to hear they do. It was our pleasure. Hope to see you again. The "gang" sends a big thanks too!

As we resque donkeys (and 'anyone' else in need, our latest arrival is Sheldon the pot belly pig) we find our guests enjoy the spirit of the animals. Included in a 2 (or more) night stay is a 'meet & greet' with the animals. One on one time and supervised by ourselves to introduce you to the animals that have found a home here. Groom them, hear their stories,and learn what is involved in taking in an animal. Many of our guests have commented on learning information about certain animals that has effected their decision on which animal would fit in their situation and which would not. Great photo time as well. This feature is totally optional. Some our guests barely have time to see all the sights in the area. When you check it just let us know if you would like to schedule a 'meet & greet'..

Also your hostess, Petra, is a certified hatha yoga instructor, if you wish to do a private class while here call for details, a 90 minute private one on one class for your party is $30.00 (Cad)
