Overview

About the property

Abigail House has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, patio, bbq/grill, screened front porch,

Walk in the door of Abigail House and you’ll immediately feel right at home. This newly updated century cottage will delight you with its cozy charm and central, downtown location. Snug enough for two, yet with plenty of room for a group, Abigail House is the perfect choice for a theatre weekend, family reunions, anniversary celebrations or a relaxing getaway with the girls. Good for the guys too... get your 4 best buds and come and golf at one of the outstanding and international renowned golf courses!

Abigail House is the ideal home base for exploring the beauty and unique attractions of the Niagara region. Shopping, fine dining, the Shaw Festival Theatre (and a grocery store!) are all just a 2 minute walk from the house. You’ll feel the world slow down as you leave traffic jams behind and stroll along our flower-filled street into the quaint and historic downtown. If you’re in the mood for even more relaxation, treat yourself to an afternoon of pampered bliss at one of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s many spas.

Bring the entire family and settle in for a picture-perfect vacation. Abigail House has a well-deserved reputation as a reasonably priced, family-friendly holiday home. Daily stresses will melt away as you enjoy the serenity of our flagstone patio and beautiful gardens while the kids play in the spacious, fully-fenced yard. There’s also a huge park with a playground, swimming pool and tennis courts just down the street and the lake is only a 5-minute walk away. Your holiday will be filled with fun, fresh air and happy memories.

Filled with Charm and Comfort

We take great pride in providing a warm and welcoming ‘home-away-from-home’ for you. Located in the heart of town on a quiet, tree-lined street,

Abigail House is spotlessly clean and endlessly comfortable. The cottage has air conditioning, large principle rooms with plenty of seating, a fully-equipped kitchen, polished hardwood floors, 4 generous bedrooms, 2 full baths with showers and a convertible sofa bed that accommodates 2 additional guests.

The main floor bedroom is bright and airy, with a fully renovated 4-piece bathroom. Perfect for a romantic escape, it also offers accessible convenience for those who find stairs a challenge. The upper floor has another full bathroom with a luxurious claw foot tub, as well as 2 queen beds and 2 extra-long twin beds.

Just imagine how much fun you’ll have grilling up a delicious meal on the BBQ, gathering round the harvest table for great food and conversation, then kicking back on the cozy, 3-season porch to watch a spectacular sunset! We also provide a flat screen TV, Wi-Fi and free North American long distance for all your entertainment needs – plus plenty of quiet nooks to curl up with a good book.

We’re Close To Everything!

When you’re feeling more ambitious, plan to tour Niagara’s world-famous wineries and colourful farmers markets, where delicious local food, wine and entertainment are always on offer. Niagara Falls is also a short drive away, with its breathtaking views, family adventures and exciting nightlife. Don’t forget to book a Whirlpool Jet Boat tour of the rapids – it’s a thrilling experience!

Golf lovers can enjoy a round on North America’s oldest golf course, right on the banks of Lake Ontario. And history buffs will love the fact that Abigail House is a historically significant century-old schoolhouse. From here you can explore Fort George and the military museum or take a nostalgic carriage ride into picturesque Old Town. There’s so much to do in the Niagara Region that you’ll be back again before you know it!

Abigail House offers something for everyone. Available for short or long-term stays, you’re welcome to stay for a week (or more!) or just come for a weekend of rest and relaxation. Our doors are always open for you!

About Janet

We purchased Abigail House over fifteen years ago as a vacation home for our family. We were captivated by the convenient location and old-world charm of this lovely cottage and have carefully updated it to preserve that cozy, welcoming feel.

As our children grew up, we spent many wonderful summers relaxing in the beautiful gardens, hosting family gatherings and celebrations and delighting in all that Niagara has to offer. Now, we feel the time has come to open our vacation home to guests, so that other families and visitors can enjoy the same wonderful experiences and happy memories that our family has cherished over the years.

Janet purchased this house in 1998

Girls weekend away

  • 4 of 5

House was nicely equipped with standard kitchen supplies (utensils, cutlery, plates/bowls, glassware), soaps, toilet paper, and towels. Overall the house was clean and functional, the property was charming, and the bedrooms were very cute!

Only downside was that the air circulation in the upstairs floor wasn't great, and there weren't any ceiling fans to use. Windows seem to be permanently shut (or at least very difficult to open), so we couldn't get any breeze in the rooms. Also, the wall lights didn't turn on, and there weren't any switches to turn on lights (most likely because it is an older house and this wasn't an option back then). Not necessarily a deal breaker, but in the hot heat of the summer, it would be nice to have.

One neighbour was very unfriendly - this isn't an issue with the house per say, but still an unpleasant experience nonetheless. Our group (which majority was 50+ in age) was outside chatting at 8:45pm and she marched over to us saying that we were "SCREAMING" and was very rude. Meanwhile, there was a house down the road with music blasting all night.

wedding family gathering

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home with comfortable beds, ample common space and practical kitchen. We only had snacks and breakfast here, but it would have been quite comfortable to share a meal together. There were 8 of us sharing 4 bedrooms. It was an easy walk to the town's main strip, the shore line and our wedding venue. I'd come back in a minute if I could talk a few friends into coming to the area to enjoy a Shaw festival play or a wine tour.

This is the first time we ever rented a vacation home anywhere. What an absolutely fantastic experience! This home is located just one or two easy blocks from everywhere - live theater, town, park, Fort George. Just a wonderful place to relax and get away from it all. The home is cozy and comfortable. We walked everywhere. Thank you for filling our hearts with wonderful memories. I would recommend this house to everyone. It is well maintained property. Both the Grill on King and the Irish Harp restaurants are excellent reasonably priced restaurants just a block away. Do not forget Taylor bakery on Queen St. For that special treat. Fort George is an excellent presentation of history.

A Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for more from our visit to Niagra on the Lake. The immaculately kept house was equipped with everything we needed and had plenty of room for the whole family. It is perfectly situated: just a block from the picturesque downtown - but with all of the privacy and quaintness one could want. Perfect for a family that may have varied interests...some may fancy an early morning walk through the neighborhoods.....others may prefer to make a b-line for the nearest coffee shop or get in a quick nine on the golf course. Either way, everyone is satisfied. The theater can't be beat and the scenery is amazing. We would highly recommend staying here. You won't be disappointed!

Car: recommended

Abigail House is the best location for the people who like to park their cars and walk, hike or bike!

Located in the historic old town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. One minute walk to Queen Street, the main shopping, theatre and dining area!. Three minute walk to the shore of the Niagara River where it flows into Lake Ontario. Watch the sunsets from the landmark gazebo!

This is a family friendly location because parks are close with playgrounds, swimming pool, tennis courts and the military museum with the self interpretive walking trail through the historic Commons.
