Adorable, quaint cottage.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here two nights, for a weekend wedding celebration. The cottage is super cute with lots of historical touches throughout. Bedrooms and bathrooms are a bit small ( 4 stars not 5) but adequate for a couple nights stay.

Location is amazing if you want to be close to the hustle and bustle of beautiful Main Street. Niagara on the lake is so endearing, can't wait to go back.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

This was Our first trip to the area.

The house is better than listed, everything you need for a fun, relaxing stay is there! The house is clean and well appointed. The location is

a dream.

We loved this house and are planning another trip back next year. Niagara on the lake main street is just steps away. There is plenty to do

in the area. We went out to lunch and dinner each day and there are many choices, check the reviews before going. We learned the hard way and

some were not very good. We did the Horn Blower and it is fun and well worth it. Pick a winery there are many to choose from, we'll pick a new

one next time just for a change.

Hope you enjoy your trip/house as much as we did!

Cottage

Charming cottage with all necessary accommodations included. The location is perfect for walking everywhere among the beautiful flowers that are so well cared for by the village. You can rent a bike or walk to the park at the water's edge for a picnic. Great place for theatre and art lovers. Nice place for two couples, family or good friends, to share some wonderful, relaxed times together.

In the heart of Niagara-on-the-Lake

  • 4 of 5

Swayze Cottage is a delightful combination of stepping back in time - with all the mod cons! Enticing sitting and relaxing areas indoors and out. Perfect for two couples - or a family. Everything - theatres, restaurants , shops, museum - is within a short walk from the cottage. And it's quiet and peaceful at night.

Niagara-on-the-Lake is the original Capital of Upper Canada from 1792 to 1797. Nestled along the shores of the Niagara River and Lake Ontario, we hold the distinction of being the only municipality in Canada whose elected head holds the title of Lord Mayor.

Each year millions of people from around the world travel here to experience our Town’s unique charm and historic sites, including Fort George and Brock’s Monument; period-restored heritage homes, top-flight golf courses, breath-taking parks and gardens, as well as over 30 wineries and countless vineyards, many of which produce our world-class ice wine.

In 2012 we launched the 200th commemoration of the War of 1812. Last from 1812 to 1814, and was the only time any country invaded Canada. in 1814, the Town’s Bicentennial Committee will continue to host a range of historical re-enactments and special events dedicated to our role as a major battle site leading to the creation of modern-day Canada.

We hope you will enjoy our Old Town shopping district, which boasts of a number of quaint shops, boutiques and restaurants, fine hotels, spas and bed & breakfast establishments, as well as public and private art galleries, the centuries-old Court House, museums, and of course, the renowned Shaw Festival Theatre.
