Idyllic cottage perfect for our girls weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were coming to NOTL for a wedding and decided to have an extended long weekend getaway. This cottage perfectly suited our needs - it is close to everything and was cozy and comfortable to relax in.

Charming place, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week-end wedding stay at the Blacksmith's Cottage in NOTL. Just a minute from downtown restaurants and boutiques but on a quiet street far from the bustle it was the perfect location, a place we were happy to come back to during the day for a break, and every night after our festivities.

The property was perfectly clean, the beds comfy, living room cozy, and kitchen fully equipped! We had dinner there one light, and breakfast every morning, which was easy and felt comfortable. Loved some of the original features of the house that have been kept.

Bathroom was lovely (renovated, heated floors) and wasn't a problem sharing it between the three of us!

Arrangements for the rental, and keys and instructions were clear and easy. Parking for one car in the lot next door was convenient, and also easy to find a spot on the street as well for the second car. We had absolutely no problems, and would definitely rent again if we are in the area. There was a contact person on site in case of problems, but happily none occurred.

Highly recommend this charming place!

Super location Super quiet!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at the Old Blacksmith’s Cottage four times and will continue to do so each October when we visit NOTL. It is in a great location (steps from the heart of town) yet very quiet. It has a private parking space, private (gated) patio, and roomy bathroom. The only issue is that there are three bedrooms and one bathroom if you would have additional people. For us it is perfect!
