About Diane Haliski

Being a sixth generation native to Niagara-on-the-Lake, & having grown up here, I have experienced the vast changes from a sleepy hollow to a thriving tourist town. One aspect that remains to this day within our village, is the historic beauty... accompanied by the breath-taking geographic location, and the warm, friendly sense of community.

Diane Haliski purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Diane Haliski chose Niagara-on-the-Lake

Situated on one of the prettiest streets in one of the "Prettiest Towns in Canada", I instantly fell in love with this enchanting cottage.....the dark green woods shading it & the sweet smell of cedar upon entering the front porch. A feeling of peace & tranquility swept over me & I knew I was home.

What makes this cottage unique

The minute walk to the ever changing lake & breath-taking sunsets make the Flying Cloud unique in every season !

Chautauqua was always, & remains to be the "magical" cottage area of town. At the turn of the century it housed the Chautauqua Ampitheatre in the centre hub of it's spoked street design....providing live theatre & entertainment to cottagers, town folk, & tourists throughout the summers.

Lovely and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Flying Cloud and we enjoyed it just as much as our first visit. Diane goes to great lengths to make the property feel welcoming, and we settled in quickly for our week. Flying Cloud is very close to Ryerson Park, with spectacular sunsets over Lake Ontario and Toronto. A short bike ride takes you into town or into the vineyards. This cottage is a fabulous way to really experience Niagara on the Lake

A lovely Cottage Stay

  • 5 of 5

Flying Cloud is an expertly decorated cottage near the water in Niagara on the Lake. The cottage is well kept and lacks nothing in amenities.

Diane is a wonderful host who can offer expert advice on activities and where to eat in the region.

We are considering another stay next year!

Best rental experience I have ever had.. no exaggeration. Host was fantastic, available but not intrusive and a whole lot of fun too. nice touches included wine, coffee and baked goods waiting upon arrival, Very comprehensive listing of local restaurants and attractions, nice spa-style products in bathrooms, gorgeous front porch for watching world go by, plus two very nice bicycles which we used often. Just perfect!

Fantastic cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a wonderful place to stay. It was well stocked, exceptionally clean, and so very charming. We were greeted with a bottle of wine and fresh flowers! It is just a few yards from Lake Ontario - we carried the lawn chairs the owners provided and a glass of wine to the park at the end of the street and enjoyed the sunset over the lake. There is a nice patio in the back and a small covered porch in the front. Diane checked in with us to make sure everything was good. It is a short drive (less than 30 minutes) from the cottage to Niagara Falls. All in all this is one of the best houses we have ever rented. We would definitely stay here again.

An Idyllic Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfectly appointed and charming getaway tucked among the trees and only steps away from Lake Ontario. We were welcomed by our host who was warm and friendly and made us feel right at home. We took full advantage of the private back yard and proximity to all of the charm Niagara on the Lake has to offer. We'd go back in a heartbeat!

For sports enthusiasts, rent a bicycle from Zoom and ride the bike trails along the Niagara River. North America's oldest golf course is around the corner . It's a public course and the clubhouse patio has the best view in town. Play tennis at the local courts, rent a paddle board or kayak in Lake Ontario.

There are the annual church/farm festivals: Strawberry Festival at St. Andrews church on the third Saturday in June, the Cherry Festival at St. Mark’s church on the first Saturday in July and the Peach Festival on the second weekend in August. The locals gather at the extremely popular Wednesday night Supper Market. This community event of food trucks and local restaurants serving food, wine, and beer has quickly became a weekly social gathering place for locals and visitors. Pull up a colourful picnic table, bring your own chairs or blanket, listen to a band and watch the kids dance.
