About John and Lorraine

1812 Cottages are historic cottages in the heart of Niagara-on-the-Lake with all the conveniences of home, thus our motto ... Historic Vacation Cottages (with Newfangled Conveniences).

Why John and Lorraine chose Niagara-on-the-Lake

The Court House cottage is named because of it's location beside the Court House Theatre. There is no place closer to this theatre and the cottage enjoys all the conveniences of being in historic old town, while maintaining isolation and serenity.

Cozy cottage in NOTL

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a wedding at Kurtz Orchards, just 5 minutes from the cottage. We found the location to be great for both the wedding and for walking downtown in the morning, as the Main Street was just around the corner! The cottage was cozy and comfortable and we enjoyed the common space it provided in comparison to a hotel room. The place was clean and the bathrooms were in good shape. Definitely would recommend!

Great cottage in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed this past weekend in May. We travel to NOTL several times a year and like to stay in homes or B&Bs in town. This cottage is nice and location is great residing right behind The Olde Angel Inn which is in center of downtown. Living room and kitchen are spacious. Bedrooms and baths small but nice. Beds were very comfortable. Thank you for a delightful stay.

Quaint Cottage in the PERFECT location

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful little cottage one block from the main street. Slightly difficult to find initially, but perfect place to walk to all the shops and restaurants on Queen street.

Parking was very convenient and nice not to have to find street parking

Very clean interior.

Tasteful and comfortable decor interior. Comfortable beds.

Two bathrooms while both lovely one was a tub and that created a challenge because four adults needed to shower.

Owners were very accommodative and helpful.

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. Lasting 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.
