A genuine WIne Country headquarters with the best of the Beamsville Bench vineyards right at your door. A classic red brick farmhouse with porches that look over our vineyards to Lake Ontario and beyond to the skyline of Toronto. Niagara Escarpment Biosphere Reserve in your backyard with access to Bruce Trail. High quality furnishings with hardwood floors throughout including in a well provisioned, custom kitchen. Entirely accessible with elevator: a rarity!
Four full bedrooms with generous closet space. Master bedrooms has an ensuite with shower/tub and the main bathroom has an accessible, dual shower head roll in shower. Television room is separate from the living room so some can watch while others chat. The upstairs den has a pullout and a wonderful balcony with loveseat and chair.
For wine tourists, this lovely rural property is less than ten kilometers to Jordan Village, the headquarters of Cave Spring Cellars, and its shops, galleries and restaurants. It is a similar distance to the Mountainview area of wineries such as Hidden Bench and Peninsula Ridge and the Cherry Avenue wineries such as Tawse and Vineland Estates. There are wineries such as Malivoire and Redstone that you can easily walk to! Culinary tourists are equally well served by the exciting winery restaurants in the Twenty Valley, such as Inn on the Twenty and the Good Earth Bistro.
For theatre goers, the Shaw Festival is a leisurely half hour drive. And don't miss the Niagara Falls, the same half hour away. For international guests, the house is 99 kilometres from downtown Toronto and about 40 Kilometres to the US border and Buffalo: both cities are achievable day trips from the Estate House.

About Helen Young
We have lived on the estate for thirty years and will be your next door neighbours during your stay. We are also hospitality professionals who love travel ourselves. This is a family project with our adult children participating in making the house ready for guests.
Helen Young purchased this Estate in 2015
Why Helen Young chose Lincoln
This house is the original farmhouse for the Cave Spring Estate. We have great photos of it in the forties and have enjoyed looking at it for the decades we have lived in the vineyard. It has a great view and allows guests to really feel like vintners. No need to go to Tuscany to stay in a vineyard!
What makes this Estate unique
The views are wonderful both to the lake and onto the Escarpment....really any way you look. The porches and deck are very welcoming and an early morning coffee on either is a lovely start to the day.

The Vineyard Estate House in Niagara was AWESOME!!!
As we live in BC, we used the Vineyard Estate House as a home-base for our daughter's wedding in St. Catherines. The interior was comfortably and tastefully furnished with modern furniture, and it had lots of plates, bowls, serving dishes and cutlery. The beds were comfy!! The whole property was well maintained. We loved being in the middle of a working vineyard. And, last but not least, the views were spectacular!!! Thanks for letting us stay!
Thanks Marilyn for choosing us for such an important family event.
Family Holiday Retreat
Everything contributed to a wonderful week for 8 people spanning 3 generations plus a dog to share the Christmas holiday. The home is very comfortably furnished and the property is expansive as well. The pictures presented are pretty accurate - we were in a vineyard with the rustic trails of the escarpment behind and in front the rolling land down to Lake Ontario and Toronto beyond. We did go to Niagara Falls and that was worth it, but the majority of our time was happily spent on the property. It suited those of us who wanted simply to relax as well as others who wanted more to do. We met both Helen and Len, both friendly and gracious. A special thanks to them for over the top courtesy. We would highly recommend a stay here. We would have stayed longer if we could.
Thanks! You make hosting easy! We hope you can make it back when there are grapes to show for our efforts.
Amazing views and venue!
We had an amazing stay here! Three generations of our family had a wonderful week in this exquisite home, including elderly parents who were able to use the handicap facilities ncluding the elevator. Something for everyone , relaxing porches with stunning views of lake and vineyards and Toronto skyline, hiking the Bruce trail out the back door (literally) and sampling the many wineries within biking distance and a day at the spa at the wonderful Inn on the Twenty!
What else can I say,! A wonderful time was had by all, we didn't want to leave and we can't wait to come back!
We were so pleased to host a family get together like this. This sort of joyful group is just what the house is perfect for. We should all have such a nice family!
Great Family Get Away Home
My family stayed the weekend to celebrate our father's 80th birthday. It was a wonderful, warm home and a perfect gathering spot. The owner is a pleasure to deal with and maintains a beautiful property.
It is always a pleasure to see the Estate House used for its best use: family get togethers. Thanks for choosing us!
A beautiful house with nice walks around the vineyard.
My husband and I stayed in the house with our 3 daughters and niece and nephew. (Ages 7 to 16 years old). The house was clean and perfect for our group. We also had our dog and our host was gracious enough to let him visit with her while we went to Niagara Falls. It was an easy 30min drive to the Falls. The house is peaceful and beautiful. We took nice walks with the kids and the dog, relaxed on the porches and enjoyed the moonlit nights. If you are a winery tourist, this is your heaven! We did not do much of that since we had the kids but it is in the middle of it all. Helen and Giuliana are lovely hostesses and very helpful for whatever you are wanting to do. I recommend this house highly!
This delightful family made hosting easy: relaxed, engaging and interested in exploring Niagara. The kind of family we would love to see again! And their pup was a very well behaved guest too!
A Perfect Retreat
Our family of 7 adults celebrated my late husband by basking in the serenity of the sunsets and moonlight; birds, bees, and bocce ball; lavender and roses; vineyards and porch-sitting; back porch dining and walks along the base of the escarpment. A perfect retreat for us. A spectacular home to stay in any season. Helen is kind and welcoming. We returned to our regular lives feeling refreshed and peaceful. Thankyou.
What a kind review. It helps to have great guests who are committed to fully enjoying life and finding wonder in small, peaceful things! Very happy to host lovely families like these folks....it makes hosting meaningful.
Lincoln is 30 minutes from Niagara Falls and so perfect for a trip to see this iconic attraction. However it is a world away in terms of relaxation: definitely go see the Falls but relax in the rural quiet of the vineyard! The Beamsville Bench winery area is one of the most prestigious in Canada. There are over 40 wineries in the neighbourhood along with their stylishly casual restaurants. We are very close the major arterial highways of the Niagara corridor to the US so accessibility is not a problem at all: you are just ten minutes away. Jordan Village is where Cave Spring makes its wine and it is its vineyards over which the Estate House looks...in fact is was the historical estate house of the farm. The village also has great boutiques, galleries and a nice, spoiling spa. Half hour proximity to St Catharines, NIagara on the Lake and Niagara Falls means busier venues are at hand, whether for theatre goers or folks looking for classic tourism blockbuster activity. But many come to this end of the peninsula for the fine rural feeling and the chance to unwind. Biking is a particular pleasure in this part of the peninsula with lots of scenic roads intermingled with modest hills.
Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
We only allow those who are registered by the renter to be on site; if this proviso is ignored, the group will be asked to vacate immediately without refund. We cannot stress too strongly that this property cannot be used as a party or wedding venue. We have a fully private apartment on site and expect reasonable quiet after 11:00. We will ask for passport or government ID upon check in: as noted the person responsible for the reservation must be over 25 years old. Holiday weekends, Easter and Christmas attract summer rates and minimum stays even though they may be in low season.
