About Maria Rosenkranz

We love historic homes and live in one ourselves. We have raised 4 children, 3 still at home and appreciate the need to have a place to just relax. We love the historical context of the John Misener Jr. house, located on the original battle of Lundy's Lane. Ralf, who is a finish carpenter has a passion for restoring historic homes, and has worked on historic homes mainly in NOTL. We want to make sure that those that come here have the choice to enjoy the peacefulness and beauty of the property or go to be a part of all the action not too far. Enjoy drinks on the front porch, or chill in the back yard while something is cooking on the BBQ.

Maria Rosenkranz purchased this house in 2011

Why Maria Rosenkranz chose Ontario

John Misener Jr. was the son of the original carriage maker of Drummondville, who worked with his father in the trade. The home as been lovingly maintained by the next owners, and then ourselves. We gave the house all the up to date amenities while maintaining it's historic charm. The 1700 sq ft house with 220+ foot lot gives you lots of space to relax indoors or out. While staying, you will discover old and new; every room has something from the past that you can discover.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this house because of the historical importance, the unique and original architecture and the meandering gardens, outbuildings on the property. The people who lived here cared about the property and only sold it to us knowing that we would respect it's integrity. You can see the fireworks over the falls from the front, or you can walk 10 min to the falls to see them close up.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my friends rented this house to get away and celebrate my buddies upcoming marriage. The hosts were excellent! Maria met us there to show us around and give us some history and we met Ralph briefly as well. The house was a great size with lots of beds. Everything we could need was there for us.

Location was great to get to the tourist areas.

Overall, just a great weekend.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO and could not have been more pleased. The accommodations were fantastic for our family of 6. Plenty of space to relax (and sleep) after long days being tourists. The house was very well stocked with basic food needs including coffee! The location was an easy walk to the Falls. Maria and Ralf met us on arrival and gave a history of the home and many great suggestions for restaurants and activities. We highly recommend this place!

Exquisite house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. With many original features, but extremely well taking care of. You can notice loving care of the owners everywhere - little details that make the house very homey and welcoming. The bedding is super soft and comfortable. Kitchen has all you can possibly need. Vintage yet very clean bathroom. Nice peaceful garden. What a treat to us!!! Thank you, we really enjoyed our stay. Quiet street yet walking distance to Niagara Falls. How perfect is that. I hope to come back one day.

Great Place in Niagara Falls

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 1st time VRBO experience. Maria and Ralf were very nice and informative. The house itself is lovely and roomy. We had six people, my husband and I, my parents, and my two kids (10 and 11). It was well equipped and Maria and Ralf went the extra mile to provide extra towels and use of a slow cooker. The neighborhood is cute and quiet, and close to the WEGO bus line which was super convenient. We enjoyed a tour of the wineries thanks to Ralf's directions and my kids loved feeding Waldo the Cat every morning! Would absolutely recommend!

Great visit! 1 mile to the falls!

  • 4 of 5

Maria and Ralph were excellent hosts! Their house is old and has with it wonderful charm. Located just under a mile from Skylon tower and just over a mile to the falls, the location can not be beat. BBQ, stocked kitchen, lots of old books to read, games for the kids, WiFi, large driveway and a place to keep bikes safe. This home is an excellent alternative to cookie cutter hotels. Thanks for the memories!
