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.
We stayed at Avalon with our grown kids and their 2 children in January for a
long weekend. The home is a gorgeous heritage home with wooden beams
We loved the over sized country kitchen! Great for gathering around and
We want to return in the summer when the pool is open.
The home is located one block from Queen street which added to our stay as
we could walk to everything and never take the car out.
We didn't want to leave!
Everything was wonderful, we found the house in great shape, very clean and it looked exactly as advertised. The location was perfect a short walk to Queen Street. We had four adult couples and found the house to be very comfortable plenty of room for everyone. The outdoor space was great especially the pool. We found the owners to be very attentive, easy to work with and genuinely concerned about providing a good experience for us. We would rent again and highly recommend Avalon to anyone.
Could not have asked for a better family vacation spot! Our hosts anticpated our every need, making our family of six adults very comfortable in a location ideal for exploring the many attractions of Niagara-on-the-Lake. Their recommendations for dining and winery visits were spot-on. We had lovely warm weather and the pool in the beautifully-landscaped yard was much appreciated!
Our group stayed at Avalon the last weekend in April 2016. We wanted to do something special for our 50th Birthdays. There were five of us and we all went to high school together. Through the years we have supported each other through college, careers, and a combined 9 children and 9 marriages!! :) It was a perfect time to reflect on all of this and on all of the love that we have shared throughout the years. The house was perfect! We couldn’t have selected a better home to enjoy and fit our needs. The home was beautiful, clean and comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone. In fact, I already have!! The location was great. We walked everywhere. We enjoyed a play, dined, shopped and did a wine tour and spent one morning at the Spa ...perfect girls weekend! Just from corresponding with the owners, I can tell they are very hands on. I feel that is important because if any problems were to arise, I know they would take care of it immediately. Nothing happened… but it is reassuring that if something “unscheduled “were to happen, it’s nice to know that they can be reached at any time. We are thinking of making this an annual trek so if we do, would love to stay at this home again or perhaps check out one of their other lovely homes. We know it will be just as wonderful as Avalon.
My parents, my sister and I traveled to Niagara On the Lake this May of 2016 for a family trip and to visit family who live in the area. After talking to the owners by phone we decided this house was perfect for our situation and our parents who didn't want to use stairs to get to a bedroom. There are two bedrooms downstairs with one bathroom,two bedrooms upstairs with their own bathrooms and we certainly had more room than we needed. This house was really lovely and the neighborhood was beautiful in May with the tulips blooming. The backyard was private and well manicured with a nice pool for summer usage although it wasn't quite "pool season" but we enjoyed sitting outside. It is just a few walking blocks from the downtown area and cafes and a small grocery store and a drug store. The owners went out of their way to call us and ask us if there was anything we needed and answer any questions. I would highly recommend this home and I look forward to staying here again.
We were a group of 5 retired women that have traveled to many locations and rented homes over our 16 years of "Annual Get-Aways". We were so lucky to have found this gem of a home in Niagara on the Lake. This charming home not only has a fantastic location, but is so tastefully decorated that we felt cozy the moment we walked in the door. It is very well maintained, and Kerri and Angelo are wonderful hosts. The convenience of this house to restaurants, theater, shopping, parks, and Fort George really made driving unnecessary. This home was a delight.
We chose Avalon for our family's pre-Christmas celebrations because it looked so pretty, and because it is a short walk to the charming centre of Niagara on the Lake. We spent six days in the house, and were all very pleased with the experience.
The house looks as the pictures show it: clean, attractive and comfortable, and, at this time of year, full of holiday touches including a Christmas tree. Since our son was not going to be with us on Christmas Day, we especially appreciated this-- it helped us feel we’d had the holiday together, after all.
Other favourite features included the electric fireplace, which makes the living room very cozy; the comfortable mattresses; and the well-equipped, attractive kitchen. We also appreciated the responsiveness and professionalism of the owners.
Like most houses in Old Town NotL, this is an older home. It has its quirks, its tilts, and its unique features. But for many who visit NotL, the historic aspect is one of the delights, so these shouldn’t be a problem for most visitors.
Overall, we were very pleased with our time at Avalon, and would not hesitate to rent this, or any other home offered by Angelo and Kerri, in the future.
