About Kerri Molinaro
We are celebrating our 17 year anniversary of Niagara on the Lake Vacation Homes! Together with my husband, Angelo, we own and operate notlvacationhomes which features our luxury vacation homes, all with private pools, located in Old Town Niagara on the Lake. Our town has been voted Canada's #1 food and wine destination by TripAdvisor, something we are very excited about. We purchased our first property, Simcoe Pines, in 2000 and started running it as a vacation home in late 2002. Between 2004 and 2006, we purchased 3 additional properties in the town, Aylesbury Manor, Amberlea House and Avalon. Angelo ran the business on his own until the Fall of 2014 when I retired from my company and joined him full time. For 17 years NOTL Vacation Homes have welcomed thousands of guests into our homes and have many returning guests come and stay in our properties year after year. We personally own these homes and take great care in ensuring an exceptional stay for our guests that vacation in any of our properties. As a result of this hands on approach, have earned over 230 5 Star reviews across many different sites, including our own. All four of our properties are very unique and exemplify what Niagara on the Lake represents. They are historical homes with our oldest home, this one, Avalon, dating back to 1820. All of them feature heated swimming pools set in mature private gardens and are located in Old Town, walking distance to Queen Street, the golf course and the lake. We welcome you to stay at one of our lovely homes for your next vacation with family or friends!
Kerri Molinaro purchased this House in 2006
Why Kerri Molinaro chose Historic Old Town
We have always loved Niagara-on-the-Lake as we both grew up in this area and our family lives near by. We wanted to find a heritage home in the historical district and had been looking for some time when we came across this charmer. We knew the minute we walked through the front door and saw all the exposed wooden beams we knew that we would be putting an offer on it! Avalon was built in the late 1820's. We have the documentation showing the first sale of the property back in 1820 when it was first traded for 600 GBP($1000 CAD). In those days the currency used was the GBP. The house was in excellent shape. All we needed to do was a bit of decorating and we added the swimming pool and enhanced the landscaping. Before we purchased it in 2006, it was a successful B&B and the previous owner took great care of it. We try to stay there ourselves when it is not being enjoyed by guests. We love the fact that the house is a half a block to Queen St and the car is never necessary except for arriving and leaving the town.

Lovely girls weekend
As advertised. Lovely home. Fabulous location walking distance from Queen St. Great rooms to hang out and catch up with friends and family. We plan to come back.
Perfect for our group
This house was perfect for our group of four couples visit Niagara on the Lake for a wine tasting weekend! It was within walking distance of restaurants and shops as well as a short drive to any of the wineries. The house was very clean, and the hosts were readily available to answer any questions we had. We would definitely recommend this property to other groups traveling to Niagara on the Lake!
Four couples with 50 year ties gathered at this lovely VRBO to reacquaint and reminisce, and it was the perfect place to do it. The living room has two large couches plus chairs so we could all be together. The bedrooms worked out beautifully, and the kitchen is well appointed and stocked with plenty of dishes and cookware. It is one block from old town and about 3 from the Festival Theater, so is very walkable. Certainly ***** 5 stars!
Thank you Sue for taking the time to write about your stay at Avalon!
We are very pleased to hear you enjoyed our home and in particular the location and the kitchen amenities! We appreciate how respectful you were and how you left the house in perfect condition....almost like you were never there!
We look forward to hearing from you again in the future.
You are always welcome back!
