Niagara-on-the-Lake Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

On-the-Lake is fabulous, incredible, awe inspiring, breath taking, and just radiates the sense of well being. Whenever we welcome a guest, we have to pause for a while just to let the whole sense of the place to set in. It isn’t just about the view; there is a special feeling of joy and calmness that emanates from this home. The house layout, the décor and its setting are in perfectly harmony. For those that are so busy with life, this truly a place where you can slow down and enjoy just being in the moment!

There is truly no other place like it in the world. The view is one that would compare to any seaside or ocean front property. You can really appreciate the immenseness of Lake Ontario from this vista. Far away you can clearly see the skyline of Toronto. The vessels going to and from the Welland Canal look so small on the horizon, like a child’s toy! The location is at the base of the “thundering river” (the first nations translation for word Niagara), where it flows into Lake Ontario. A favourite spot for sail boats and fishing boats! You can watch some of the best of what Mother Nature has to offer, from the afternoon sun reflecting its light show off of Fort Niagara, to swans floating by, to storm watching, this view is ever changing. Trying to capture it on camera just doesn’t seem to catch the essence of being here in person.

This luxury vacation home has all the modern day conveniences to offer. As you enter into On-the-lake there are two rooms off the main foyer, a ½ bath and beautiful French doors into the main living area. The open concept living,dining and gourmet kitchen is perfect for entertaining! There is a large screen TV (which I doubt you will have the inclination to watch!), an amazing two sided gas fireplace. The dining area has a large table for everyone sit comfortably, perfect for dining or crafting! There are also sliding doors out to the back which is a covered veranda. The house is built to maximize every room’s vantage point of the view towards the water.Its simplicity in décor perfectly complements what mother nature has created and can be seen from the large windows. This professionally decorated home had a designer who really knows how to bring the outdoors in! But we didn’t forget the practical, the kitchen is well laid out and equipped and there is a main floor washer and drier, sub zero refrigerator, built in oven, gas top stove and central vacuuming!

The main floor bedroom is fully wheel chair accessible, as well as the rest of the main floor.The ensuite has been modified to provide easy access to the shower, sink, lavatory and closet space.

Upstairs are two more bedrooms and the master suite. Each bathroom has its own inspiration from designer floral Kohen sinks to the best view from a porcelain throne!The bedrooms are spacious, provide ample closet space and we provide the top quality in bed linens!You may never want to leave your room! If you are the lucky one to get the master suite you also get a private sitting room, with desk, leather couch and chairs and flat screen TV, this room is round and surrounded with windows! Enter into the bedroom with the King sized bed and your own Juliette balcony.This room’s en suite could be in any luxury travel magazine. It is a huge room, with a huge walk in shower that takes up almost half the space! But the best part is the raised Jacuzzi tub which overlooks; yep you know it, the incredible view. Just imagine sitting in warm bubbly waters, your glass of wine, and looking out across at the world. Does it get any better???

This vacation home has no comparable in this region. It offers incredible value because you and your traveling companions get all of this for less than the cost of the best hotel room in town! Your stay at On-the-Lake will be a memory that you will enjoy for a lifetime! It really is worth far more than a Million Dollars, but you can enjoy it one vacation at a time!

We first came to Niagara-on-the-Lake in early 1980. We have been fortunate to have lived in many places but we think of this beautiful little town as home. There are few places in the world that offer the charm, history and activities within such a small area. The wineries, the great restaurants, the entertainment from world class theatre to intimate settings with fabulous music concerts to just strolling along the streets and the Niagara Parkway. This community is made up of a melting pot of all sorts of people, but the one thing they have in common, is their friendliness and their love of our community. And it shows! From the immaculate gardens, to their willingness to help a lost tourist, this is a place that is safe and where no one is ever to busy not to stop and have a chat!

When we are here, there is that feeling that all is right with the world and what a place to celebrate all the good things in life! It is such a great place to reconnect with our family and friends, making memories that last a life time!

There just simply isn’t any other home like it! The luxurious accommodation and its unique amenities aside, this vacation home offers incredible value. Where else can three or 4 couples or a group of eight stay, get these incredible amenities and still cost less than staying at a hotel in town! There really isn’t comparable accommodation anywhere in this region. Truly exceptional value and you are creating memories that will last a life time. The home is built to maximize the view and the best of what Mother Nature has to offer. A photograph just can’t capture the immense sense of well being this home emits. It is also decked out with a gourmet kitchen offers everything a chef or a “want to be chef’ could imagine, well equipped, full of natural light and open to the dining area. You can even enjoy the incredible two sided fireplace!! This house has Jacuzzi tubs, flat screen TV’s, every room with an en suite (one has the best view ever from a porcelain throne!).You just can’t get all this at a hotel, bed and breakfast or an Inn. It is only available at On-the-Lake!

The main floor is also fully wheel chair accessible. The main floor bedroom with en suite was also beautifully and thoughtfully designed to be handicapped accessible.The shower permits a wheel chair to go into it, the lavatory has been appropriately fitted, and the sink is accessed easily. Even the closet has pull down rods for ease of use!!

And for those who want a quiet moment to themselves, stretch out in the Jacuzzi tub with a glass of wine , listen to the birds and the crashing waves and feel your cares melt away!

This is one of those places you never want to leave! You will enjoy just being outside watching the comings and goings on the river and the lake. In the end, you may even save money because you’ll only want to eat in and bring back wine to enjoy on your own private slice of the best this pretty little town has to offer!

Can't get over what a stunning residence this is. I remember getting out of my rental car and watching tourists from the sidewalk gawking at how lovely, and what a perfect location this is. This home must've been designed by Canada's most premier interior decorator, because it sure looks that way! I had friends and family with me that live in different parts of the globe, and everything seemed to slow down to a perfect pace while we were here. The rushing and 'gotta do this and that', just seemed to melt away. There's no forgetting a time spent here in Niagara-on-the-Lake. It's a virtual impossibility. Many many thanks to Eric and Janet to the loveliest stay I've ever had in Ontario (and I've been to Ontario over 100 times). Can't wait to return!

What a beautiful and well-maintained house! Applicances and bathrooms were spotless and excellent. Also a great location. Pictures do not do justice to this house (which is very surprising since the photographs were absolutely amazing).

Although we were early in the spring season, you could see how much care is given to the grounds, trees, shrubs and flowers. Must be a beautiful spot in the summer when everything is in full bloom.

Look forward to coming back. A big thank you to the property managers who answered all of our questions in a timely manner in addition to providing us with helpful restaurant and entertainment recommendations.

HEAVEN ON EARTH!

We have been coming to NOTL for the last 5 summers. This will be our third summer to rent this beautiful property and we hope to continue to do so for many summers to come! This is hands down our favorite family vacation spot. We have young adult children, a daughter and son, who look forward to joining us here every year. We book the next year before we even leave On-The-Lake, it is that special to our family. We have also invited friends to visit, who fall in love with the town and home, and bring their family the next year to enjoy it. The property shows well in the pictures, but we all decided that it is even better in person! There are delicious restaurants, shopping, markets, theater, music, and other activities for all ages just a short walk from your front steps. But the home, view from the veranda, and cool breezes coming off the lake make it hard to leave your own piece of heaven. Every morning we love to have breakfast on the veranda and watch the sailboats sail out of the Niagara River into Lake Ontario. It is a sight we never tire of. This is one of the few rental properties, by the way, that actually borders the lake. The home is spacious and well laid out. The bedrooms are well appointed, comfortable, roomy, and clean. The kitchen has everything you need to cook wonderful meals on those nights that you choose to stay in and enjoy the sunsets over the lake. Coming from the south, we enjoy leaving the heat behind and enjoying the milder summer that NOTL provides. We have traveled many places while our children were growing up, but we all love coming here every summer as a true family retreat! It really is heaven on earth to us!

Annual get together stay at a great house!

We had a group of 4 couples stay at the house for our annual trip and truly enjoyed the house. Within walking distance of town, a short drive to lots of wineries, plus great views of the lake and Ft. Niagara made our experience great and we all agreed it would be a great place to rent again.

Special Family Christmas

This was one of the most memorable times we have spent with our adult children. Our oldest daugher was home from New Zealand for the first time in three years. This property lived up to all the advanced billing. The photos on the website were acurate. The home is in immaculate condition. It is spacious, is loaded with everything a family would need, and reflects pride of ownership. The setting is spectacular, it is within walking distance of the main street of Niagara On The Lake, It is also a short drive to numerous attractions, and some very good vineyards. Janet went above and beyond making sure the house was decorated inside and out for the Christmas Season. They even provided a much appreciated Christmas Tree. We hope to be back again for a stay either this summer, or my favourite time of year...the Fall. I would and have recommended this property to family and friends.

Owner's Response: When we welcome guests to On-the-Lake, guests always say that it is even better than the pictures! We really try hard to make sure that the pictures and the write-up honestly represent the vacation home, but this is a home that you need to experience in person to understand how wonderful it is!

I remember you and your family well and I am so happy to be part of your amazing Chritstmas! Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review for us, and we hope to see you again soon! Janet and Eric

An exceptional house and location

A truly serene house and location, absolutely fabulous. A large and comfortable house with an excellent kitchen, but the view from the huge back porch overlooking the lake is what makes On-the-Lake a very special place. We stayed a week with old friends and couldn't have been more pleased. A short walk to everything, and the town is gorgeous.

Owner's Response: We always enjoy hearing back from guests, especially their stories about how they enjoyed their vacation home and what they did! During the booking process I often hear of all the activities planned for their stay - often a hectic schedule! Then when they arrive and see that view in person and sit on the deck- their plans change! It's a place to kick back and relax. Thanks so much for submitting the review, we really apprecite it!
