About Darla Koop

We have lived in Niagara-on-the-Lake for nearly 20 years and love the area - especially all the beautiful historic properties. Peter grew up in nearby Jordan Station, Ontario and Darla is a transplanted American, originally from Kansas.

Darla Koop purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Darla Koop chose Niagara-on-the-Lake

We have always wanted to own a property in 'Old Town' Niagara-on-the-Lake because we love the architecture of historic houses and the lovely gardens in town.

What makes this cottage unique

We fell in love with this property because of the beautiful landscaping already in place and it's location on a quiet street so close to the lake.

Lovely Cottage - Great Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Darla and Pete provided us with a warm welcome to their delightful cottage. All the amenities needed were provided, and they not only respond quickly to any questions but even anticipate your needs. We hope to make a visit to the Shaw Festival an annual tradition, and I cannot imagine staying anywhere else.

Everything One Needs

  • 5 of 5

Perfect little cottage. It's close to town so you could walk and be there in less than 10 minutes. Everything is very clean and well stocked. It really was a "Home Away From Home". I'll stay there again.

The Best Kept Secret of NOTL

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage is absolutely amazing. Not only is it beautifully decorated but as clean as clean can be. The moment you walk in, you feel at home. Darla and Peter are great hosts and very responsive.

It was a delight to be so close to the Lake and yet so close to the shops. Monty, our dog, really had fun too.

All in all a small house with big charm, we will be back.

Cozy perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 nights at Hawsepiper cottage and it was everything we hoped it would be. Immaculately clean, cozy and comfortable. Such a quiet location, ideally placed for where we wanted to be and what we wanted to do that weekend.

We will definitely be back!

Simply put it was our favorite place to stay in NOL yet. We have stayed maybe a dozen times before and by far this was our best experience. The cottage is beautiful, quaint yes accommodating in every way.

As most people will tell you, it's all about location. This spot cannot be beat! Central to everything yet tucked away enough to feel hidden.

Our hosts were fantastic and we are already looking for time to spend here again.

I would recommend this property to anyone.

Lovely weekend.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for the 2 of us and our small dog. Darla was very nice and helpful and provided lots of info. about the area. Location was great: very close to the main drag in town, but off the beaten path, so it was very quiet. I loved the peaceful walks with the dog in the morning down to the shore (a block away). We'd highly recommend Hawespiper to our friends and family. We will be back.
