Girls Winery Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful property. Clean, comfortable, and updated in all the right places. Perfect for our group of 6 girls. We spent a lot of our time sitting on the huge front porch and just enjoying the beautiful and calm surroundings. It was just a stones throw away from Queen St. for restaurants and shopping. We all agreed that we would rent this place again so I'm sure we'll be back!

Excellent Location! Great Comfort!

  • 5 of 5

The home is very nicely kept, very comfortable and very excellently located. With three rooms, two very nice bathrooms, a very functional kitchen and comfortable spaces for eating and hanging out you really couldn't need more. My parents, small child and I were traveling to the area for a family memorial and it was great to escape back to the house in the evenings and afternoons - with the great wifi we could get a little work done on the most magical porch and really relax. My parents and I were able to walk to many restaurants and through the town so quickly and easily. It felt safe and comfortable. We will definitely be back!!!!!

WONDERFUL COTTAGE WITH GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of three couples. The cottage was well laid out, lots of room and space to move about with six adults. Having the kitchen amenities such as coffee, tea, sugar, salt, pepper, paper towel, toilet paper and all cooking utensils and cookware made it very convenient. The location is superb, one block from the main attractions. We always go to the "Irish Harp" on our first night and being able to walk to and from is so convenient.

The only thing that could be improved on would be having a bathroom for the third bedroom, but two couple sharing the same bathroom is not that bad. All in all the stay at the Captain's Quarters was very relaxing, comfortable and cozy. We will definitely be looking up this property again for next year. Thank you for everything!

Great location, great house

  • 5 of 5

Our son was married recently in Niagara-on-the-Lake. When investigating prices we found that we could stay at Captain's Quarters for three nights for the same price as staying for two nights/two rooms at a local upscale hotel. We did not regret our choice. We had three comfortable bedrooms, a very large living room with two gathering places, a dining room, updated kitchen, BBQ area out back and an amazing front porch. The house is located within walking distance to a golf course and is one block from the main street with its beautiful little shops. For us, we had a great base. The guys came back after golf and used the gas BBQ, the groomsmen had plenty of room to change and get ready for the wedding, the porch was a great backdrop for photos and we could invite people over for drinks in the evening or breakfast on the day after the ceremony. The house was well-maintained and well-appointed and felt just like home. The management was very helpful in explaining details of the house, had local information ready and was there to help at a moment's notice. We forgot several items at the house and again they were most helpful in getting them back to us. NOTL is a lovely little village so while there you can visit Fort George, take in a play at the Shaw Theatre, visit the Trish Romance studio, sit on the grass and watch the water, or visit wineries and the many excellent restaurants. We absolutely loved Captain's Quarters and would highly recommend it.
