Walk in the door of Abigail House and you’ll immediately feel right at home. This newly updated century cottage will delight you with its cozy charm and central, downtown location. Snug enough for two, yet with plenty of room for a group, Abigail House is the perfect choice for a theatre weekend, family reunions, anniversary celebrations or a relaxing getaway with the girls. Good for the guys too... get your 4 best buds and come and golf at one of the outstanding and international renowned golf courses!

Bring the entire family and settle in for a picture-perfect vacation. Abigail House has a well-deserved reputation as a reasonably priced, family-friendly holiday home. Daily stresses will melt away as you enjoy the serenity of our flagstone patio and beautiful gardens while the kids play in the spacious, fully-fenced yard. There’s also a huge park with a playground, swimming pool and tennis courts just down the street and the lake is only a 5-minute walk away. Your holiday will be filled with fun, fresh air and happy memories.

Filled with Charm and Comfort

We take great pride in providing a warm and welcoming ‘home-away-from-home’ for you. Located in the heart of town on a quiet, tree-lined street, Abigail House is spotlessly clean and endlessly comfortable. The cottage has air conditioning, large principle rooms with plenty of seating, a fully-equipped kitchen, polished hardwood floors, 4 generous bedrooms, 2 full baths with showers and a convertible sofa bed that accommodates 2 additional guests.

We pay particular attention to our beds and bedding to maximize your comfort. All of our beds are piled high with pillows and come with new, top-quality mattresses and freshly ironed, high thread-count cotton sheets.

The main floor bedroom is bright and airy, with a fully renovated 4-piece bathroom. Perfect for a romantic escape, it also offers accessible convenience for those who find stairs a challenge. The upper floor has another full bathroom with a luxurious clawfoot tub, as well as 2 queen beds and 2 extra-long twin beds that can be converted to a King bed.

Just imagine how much fun you’ll have grilling up a delicious meal on the BBQ, gathering round the harvest table for great food and conversation, then kicking back on the cozy, 3-season porch to watch a spectacular sunset! We also provide a flat screen TV, DVD player, Wi-Fi and free North American long distance for all your entertainment needs – plus plenty of quiet nooks to curl up with a good book.

We’re Close To Everything!

Abigail House is the ideal home base for exploring the beauty and unique attractions of the Niagara region. Shopping, fine dining, the Shaw Festival Theatre (and a grocery store!) are all just a 2 minute walk from the house. You’ll feel the world slow down as you leave traffic jams behind and stroll along our flower-filled street into the quaint and historic downtown. If you’re in the mood for even more relaxation, treat yourself to an afternoon of pampered bliss at one of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s many spas.

When you’re feeling more ambitious, plan a tour Niagara’s world-famous wineries and colourful farmers markets, where delicious local food, wine and entertainment are always on offer. Niagara Falls is also a short drive away, with its breathtaking views, family adventures and exciting nightlife. Don’t forget to book a Whirlpool Jet Boat tour of the rapids – it’s a thrilling experience!

Golf lovers can enjoy a round on North America’s oldest golf course, right on the banks of Lake Ontario. And history buffs will love the fact that Abigail House is a historically significant century-old schoolhouse. From here you can explore Fort George and the military museum or take a nostalgic carriage ride into picturesque Old Town. There’s so much to do in the Niagara Region that you’ll be back again before you know it!

Abigail House offers something for everyone. Available for short or long-term stays, you’re welcome to stay for a week (or more!) or just come for a weekend of rest and relaxation. Our doors are always open for you!

About Janet

We purchased Abigail House over fifteen years ago as a vacation home for our family. We were captivated by the convenient location and old-world charm of this lovely cottage and have carefully updated it to preserve that cozy, welcoming feel.

As our children grew up, we spent many wonderful summers relaxing in the beautiful gardens, hosting family gatherings and celebrations and delighting in all that Niagara has to offer. Now, we feel the time has come to open our vacation home to guests, so that other families and visitors can enjoy the same wonderful experiences and happy memories that our family has cherished over the years.

Janet purchased this cottage in 1998

This is the first time we ever rented a vacation home anywhere. What an absolutely fantastic experience! This home is located just one or two easy blocks from everywhere - live theater, town, park, Fort George. Just a wonderful place to relax and get away from it all. The home is cozy and comfortable. We walked everywhere. Thank you for filling our hearts with wonderful memories. I would recommend this house to everyone. It is well maintained property. Both the Grill on King and the Irish Harp restaurants are excellent reasonably priced restaurants just a block away. Do not forget Taylor bakery on Queen St. For that special treat. Fort George is an excellent presentation of history.

A Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have asked for more from our visit to Niagra on the Lake. The immaculately kept house was equipped with everything we needed and had plenty of room for the whole family. It is perfectly situated: just a block from the picturesque downtown - but with all of the privacy and quaintness one could want. Perfect for a family that may have varied interests...some may fancy an early morning walk through the neighborhoods.....others may prefer to make a b-line for the nearest coffee shop or get in a quick nine on the golf course. Either way, everyone is satisfied. The theater can't be beat and the scenery is amazing. We would highly recommend staying here. You won't be disappointed!

Our Stay

  • 5 of 5
The house was terrific - spotless and ready for our stay the moment we walked in. Lots of little amenities that you see in hotels but don't really expect when you rent a house. The coffee was great! The beds were great with huge pillows and soft comforters - it made the sleep terrific! Our hole family had a great time. Super location - close to the main strip so we just walked to the shops and restaurants.

Absolutely perfect! We will come again and again!

  • 5 of 5
Abigail House is absolutely perfect for a family get away or a gathering of friends. I love properties that have a nostalgic feeling while still being up to date with their amenities. Abigail House has both charm and functionality. The decor is fresh, cheerful and uncluttered. The house is impeccably kept, and the provisions for the kitchen and bedrooms are ample.
Abigail House is within walking distance to shops, restaurants and the theater. I sat on the front porch and watched horse drawn carriages pass by. It was certainly a respite from a busy life, and a welcomed reminder of a simpler way of life.
The backyard garden is so inviting. We could either walk to a restaurant in town, cook in the cottages kitchen or grill out back and eat on the patio. Although the house is close to town it has plenty of privacy for those seeking quiet. It is a "best of both worlds" feeling for certain.
The proximity to biking, Forte George and Niagara Falls are all a plus for this property. Niagara Falls is less than 30 minutes away, and NOTL is certainly one of the loveliest towns we have ever visited. I would highly recommend this well cared for cottage to all.

Too much fun and comfort

  • 5 of 5
We had spent the previous weekend in Napa so how could this compare. From the moment we stepped into Abagail House we knew we were in for a treat. The warmth of the house, a block from the theater and downtown area allowed us to park the cars for the entire weekend. Morning beakfast in the gardens followed by a bike ride to the vineyards--- spectacular!!

We will be repeat visitors.

This is the best location for the people who like to park their cars and walk, hike or bike!

Abigail House is in the historic old town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. One minute walk to Queen Street, the main shopping, theatre and dining area!. Three minute walk to the shore of the Niagara River where it flows into Lake Ontario. Watch the sunsets from the landmark gazebo!

This is a family friendly location because parks are close with playgrounds, swimming pool, tennis courts and the military museum with the self interpretive walking trail through the historic Commons.
