About Diane Haliski

Being a seventh 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 Historic Old Town

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.

Wonderful Cottage for Quiet Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Diane has thought of every detail to make your stay easy and comfortable. This was our second year visiting the Flying Cloud in the fall to enjoy the scenery and favorite wineries. The location is perfect steps from the lake, and only minutes from local shopping and wonderful dining.

Cute cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful time at the Flying Cloud! It is such a cute cottage and a perfect place for relaxing! Everything is top notch and every detail was perfect. It was an awesome time, from visiting local wineries, shopping in Old Town, exploring antiques, trying new restaurants or just kicking back and chilling out. Highly recommended to visit.

comfortable, clean, cozy

  • 5 of 5

The Flying Cloud became 'home' with ease. It had both everything you could need and want, inside and out. The location was supreme. Diane is the perfect vacation rental owner - she provided us with a beautiful house and suggestions to make our trip a memorial one. Thank you Diane!!! We had the best time!!!!!

The property is impeccably maintained. It was clean, well decorated and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Diane's cottage is a gem inside and out. She's taken great care to turn it into a refuge for her guests. From the nice soft sheets and towels to her plush cozy sofa, no detail was overlooked.

We loved that we could see the lake from the front porch and be in walking distance of many attractions. The little blue Xmas lights on the porch made it easy to find the cottage at night.

All in all I highly recommend the Cloud. It will make your stay in Niagara that much more enjoyable.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't completely capture the coziness of the cottage. It was beyond charming, and a lot of love and attention went in to making it feel like a home. Had everything we needed to make our stay complete. Diane even made reservations for us at a local restaurant. Hope to make a return visit and would definitely recommend staying there.

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.
