Niagara-on-the-Lake House Rental Photos and Description
4 bedroom, 4 1/2 bathroom 2 story new home, deck and 2nd floor veranda
Six Nations House is a home rich in history and culture. Newly built, the home is architecturally designed to offer all the modern conveniences and comforts but keeps the charm of the old work setting that Niagara-on-the-Lake so richly emulates.
The exterior is made of very modern materials that will stand the test of time, but the Georgian style of the build is reflective of the era when the town was rebuilt after 1812. The era was a simple one and the efficient, solid look was all the rage.The Georgian style is known for the white siding and black shutters, central door (red of course!), two storey and lots of windows with muntins (grills) . Doors and windows are trimmed with frame work that you can see often in and around town on the historic homes.
While the look of Six Nations is very much in keeping with the olde town neighborhood, the home itself offers such warmth, comfort and style, it is hard to know where to start! As you enter the front door the first thing you will notice is the wide staircase that leads upstairs to 3 large bedrooms. The main floor has gleaming hardwood floor.
To the left of the staircase is the open concept dining room and kitchen. The rectangular dining table is large enough to easily accommodate 8, with solid wood chairs designed for comfort. Open to the kitchen, this allows for everyone to join the cook in chatting and preparing meals! The spacious kitchen is equipped with a generous two door fridge and freezer,new stove, microwave, kettle, coffee machine , pots, pans, dishes, glasses, wine glasses, utensils and so much more! Unique to this home is the easy access to the covered back patio with the bbq/grill, perfect for preparing those outdoor meals in the summer, but so convenient for using the bbq/grill in the winter!
The large living area is to the right of the stairs on the main floor. A big comfy couch and cozy chairs in front of the wood burning fireplace. The room is filled with natural light during the day and in the evening is perfect for cozying up and spending time with your favorite people. Adjacent to the living area and kitchen is a powder room.
This home has an amazing stereo system with speakers in every room! You can control the volume in each room separately, so bring your classical, jazz or Christmas carols for all to enjoy!
This home offers easy access for anyone with mobility issues. On the main floor is the master bedroom with en suite (tub/shower), large closet, flat screen TV and a luxurious King bed. Upstairs are 3 very large bedrooms with en suites (tub/shower). Gleaming hardwood floors throughout.
Off the upper foyer is a walk out covered veranda, which you can enjoy with a glass of wine or reading bed time stories to the children underneath the stars.
The decor is very inviting and also has a proud display of artifacts and history that you can touch, read about and enjoy! In Six Nations House you will find a curated selection of books that will increase your knowledge and appreciation of Six Nations and Native contributions in the War of 1812 and their impact in shaping Canada’s borders and national character. Also included is a selection of Smithsonian books showcasing Native arts and history that Tim has either edited, conceptualized, or strategically initiated. These include Spirit Capture: Photographs From The National Museum of the American Indian, American Indians / American Presidents, Native Universe: Voices of Indian America, and Infinity of Nations: Art and History in the Collections of the National Museum of the American Indian, to name a few. Additionally, he co-created the museum’s membership magazine, American Indian, copies of which are also included in Six Nations House.
Please also acknowledge and respect the purple and white flag you see flying next to the British Union Jack on the front of Six Nations House. It is the national flag of the Haudenosaunee. Together, these two flags represent the strategic alliance that once held strong between Six Nations and England, without which Canada would have looked very different today.

About The Owner
Your proprietors are Tim and Lisa Johnson from Six Nations of the Grand River.
For more than twenty years Lisa (Oneida) has managed The Bear’s Inn at Six Nations of the Grand River. Designed to accurately reflect the community’s storied history and culture, The Bear’s Inn has welcomed and facilitated thousands of guests and dozens of organizations that have done good works benefiting the community — ranging from health and education advancement to language preservation, support of the arts, and economic development. Because Haudenosaunee (Six Nations or Iroquois) society is matrilineal — meaning families follow the mother’s heritage — Six Nations House is an Oneida Nation Bear Clan household.
Tim (Mohawk) is a direct descendant of the historic Mohawk leader Joseph Brant. In addition, his great uncle Emerson Hill was among the first Haudenosaunee Chiefs to travel internationally on an Iroquois Passport. During his time spent as associate director for Museum Programs at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of the American Indian, Tim has managed the production of world-class and critically acclaimed exhibitions, award-winning publications and media, exceptional educational products designed for homes and classrooms across North America, and exhilarating cultural programs.
In Six Nations House you will find a curated selection of books that will increase your knowledge and appreciation of Six Nations and Native ally contributions in the War of 1812 and their impact in shaping Canada’s borders and national character. Also included is a selection of Smithsonian books showcasing Native arts and history that Tim has either edited, conceptualized, or strategically initiated.
