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.

What a great stay!! We visited NOTL and had a wonderful time. We were so happy to find a home for our young family. Our main reason for stay was to see Niagara Falls--USA and Canada side. Our stay was wonderful. Clean, safe and comfortable. Will recommend to all family and friends. Great fall weather, wonderful cottage. Couldn't ask for more. Peter was great!!!!!

Perfect location-lovely accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This house is so charming. We had a lovely stay in NOTL. Pete was eager to ensure our stay was perfect. This cottage is down the street from the lake and great for walking. We would have stayed longer but it was already booked.

This is our 3rd time using Home Away and this one is the best place we have stayed. Thanks for everything.

Great Home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best home we’ve have stayed at in Canada. Mr. Koop met us at the home and was so kind and inviting. My wife and I also asked if we could have an earlier check in time, and he was so gracious enough to allow us to be there as early as noon. The home is exactly as shown in the pictures, and better. Properly cleaned and very well maintained. Towels and linens were provided. Home was spacious enough for us two and our family dog. Home was beautifully decorated, with a gorgeous remodeled bathroom. Fans in every room as well as air conditioner, making the home very comfortable in the hot summer months. Backyard was very comfortable for us, even had a little BBQ and patio set for sitting out and listening to the birds sign. We were literally a few steps from water front and about 5 minutes from King Street and Niagara-On-The-Lake old town (my wife’s favorite place to go shopping). Aside from that, we were just minutes from the best wineries on NOTL and 10 minutes from outlets. Cant say enough good things about this property, and we cant wait to stay again very soon! Highly recommended!

Charming cottage, fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Peter and Darla have thought of just about everything in fitting out Hawsepiper Cottage. It has a very well equipped kitchen, a very cool refrigerator, and everything is clean as a whistle and obviously well cared for. Peter came by shortly after we arrived and showed us anything that we might have had a question about. Best of all it the cottage is within easy walking distance of the lake, Queens Street, both Shaw Festival Theaters and bike paths galore! We come to Niagara-on-the-lake frequently and will definitely try to rent this place again. Perfect for one or two couples.

Clean and comfortable in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

Boy, did we luck out finding this gem! In planning my 1st trip to see the falls in Niagara I found this great cottage in a quiet, peaceful setting. It is within walking distance of the lake shore, beautiful parks, and a quaint town. Good restaurants, shopping, and of course, the wineries!

I would highly recommend this cottage.
