    Peace and quiet

    Great old house1835! The use of electric candles to give it a pre-electricity time was a great effect. Sindy was personally warm welcoming and superb in her advice! Thanks for the new memories of Niagara-on-The-Lake

    Great location

    Lovely house in a perfect location. Better than a hotel. Comfortable beds. Historic house so only one bathroom on the first floor, but it's very nice. Will go back again

    Restful Retreat

    What a fantastic place. It took us back in time - while providing all the modern conveniences. Sindy and her family have done a great job replicating the feel of what 1835 must have felt like in a home. Beautifully decorated in the period. Beds comfy, kitchen had everything we needed and the back porch entrance was bonus with a barbeque in a private setting in the back that we could have used - even in December. Thank you so much Sindy. Your restful retreat took us back to a simpler time and provided the tranquility we needed for 6 days. Thank you so much. Loved the proximity to everything as well.

    Perfect location, charming and cozy!

    This was the perfect romantic destination for our first anniversary! The cozy little house was a block from the Main Street, parks, and the waterfront.

    Fantastic get away

    This charming house was perfect for our family of 4. Extremely quiet and peaceful, yet one block away from the shops and restaurants. We spent our mornings sipping coffee on the veranda and listening to the birds. The house maintains its historic feel, with all the modern amenities for your comfort: A/C, WiFi, gas hot water, digital TV, laundry. The owner was extremely kind and helpful.

    Exactly what we pictured!

    This place was a haven. Location can’t be beat, place has a ton of quaint character and we had both a day of wine touring with friends and a romantic evening just us two. Perfect for all occasions. Sindy was incredibly accommodating to boot. Can’t recommend highly enough

    Charming home, great location.

    We really enjoyed our weekend stay in this charming home. Home was very clean; beds and furnishings were comfortable; loved the backyard patio, flowers and porch. The property owner was very nice and thought of everything you would need for an enjoyable visit. We would definitely stay here again on a future visit.
