About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Cedar Shores is a recently renovated, 2 storey, 4 bedroom house in the Chautauqua area of the Historic Old Town district of Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Located in the #1 location in town. The house is located in a very quiet, quaint area of town with towering, old growth trees. The house is only a short 15 minute walk to the main street in Niagara-on-the-Lake (Queen Street). Spectacular sunsets which National Geographic rated as one of the 10 best in the world can be viewed from a Lakeside park located only 5 doors down from Cedar Shores.

Many nice quaint shops and restaurants in Niagara-on-the-Lake and Niagara Falls is about a 25 minute drive with lots more lively things to do.


With restored hardwood flooring throughout and cedar lining the walls of the living room and den, Cedar Shores is a sanctuary that is a model of casual elegance for the area. The house features 4 bedrooms - all with queen or king size beds. There are 2 bathrooms, each with walk-in showers. The master bedroom is situated on the main floor with the remaining bedrooms on other levels. The open concept, fully equipped kitchen has modern stainless steel appliances including a gas stove that is ideal for preparing large meals for all gatherings. The kitchen opens on to a large dining room with a beautiful raised ceiling and roof top windows that comfortably seats 8 people. The living room off the dining room is well equipped with a wood burning fire place, large HD television, Blu-ray DVD player, wireless internet and surround sound speaker system. Off the living room, separated by pocket doors, is a cozy den with a double futon couch and easy chair for relaxing in the corner of the house. There is a washer and dryer located in the basement of the house. The house has central air conditioning.

Off the kitchen is wood deck with a gas barbecue. The backyard features a kidney shaped, heated, in ground salt water pool. There is parking for two vehicles and the house accommodates a maximum of 8 people. The peaceful cottage atmosphere of the area is a welcome sanctuary for people looking to get away for a few days or longer.

Why The Owner chose Niagara-on-the-Lake

We bought the house as a weekend and week long getaway for our family. As we were setting it up, we decided to outfit it in a way that guests can easily be accommodated and not feel like they are intruding in someone else's house. From the comments of our guests, they feel that the house is a great setup with the most comfortable beds they've ever experienced.

What makes this cottage unique

The location of the house has to be one of the most peaceful locations in town. It brings you back in time to when things were a lot simpler and less rushed.

Perfect family cottage

  • 5 of 5

Cedar Shores has great bedroom space for large families and I wish April was warm enough to have taken advantage of the backyard and pool. A great walking distance to downtown. All in all, a great place to stay.

Well Equipped

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I stayed at Cedar Shores for a weekend in December to do some last minute Christmas shopping and visit some wineries. The house was nice and big to accommodate our group of 8. We could walk to Queen St to the shops and it was no more than a 10 minute drive to wineries. The inside of the house was warm and inviting. We sat around the fireplace most of our in house time and piled wood on the fire which we were able to get from the large wood pile. The kitchen was nice and large and the beds were most comfortable. The only regret was that we couldn't enjoy the pool because it was freezing outside.

My family and I had a great weekend reunion at this house. We enjoyed our time together and if you're looking for a nice quiet spot in the middle of the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake to enjoy your group's company, this house will treat you well.

Ladies weekend

  • 5 of 5

Visited NOTL for a few nights to relax and enjoy some winery tours. There were 7 ladies in total and the house was marvellous. It gave us plenty of space and allowed for us to sit together for meals and relaxing by the fire. We agreed that we will come back next time in the summer to enjoy the pool which looked lovely.

Enjoyed in thoroughly

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Cedar Shores. We enjoyed it this time as much as the first time. A quaint relaxing stay for our group of 3 couples. The house offers all the amenities we could want and there is a great feel to the house and the neighborhood. It is a short walk to the main street in town which we took advantage of during our stay. We'll be back again. Thanks.

This cozy cottage home provided the perfect escape for our family vacation. A short walk to the water and the downtown area, would recommend to anyone.

Many picturesque wineries are minutes away by car. There are 3 theatres in town hosting various plays for the Shaw Festival throughout the season. Great shopping in picturesque boutiques along Main street in Niagara-on-the-Lake (Queen St) as well as in the new Niagara Outlet mall which is about a 15 minute car ride away.
