My husband and I grew up in the Toronto area and met while in University. We're both professionals working in Toronto and living in Mississauga. We have a daughter and a son, one in high school and another in University. We are blessed to have gown up and worked in this area of Canada that has so much to offer.
Jamie purchased this House in 2017
Why Jamie chose Historic Old Town
My husband and I have been getting away to Niagara-on-the-Lake for the last 30 years. It's a place that always makes us feel like we are far away from our everyday world with so many places to relax, play and enjoy. From cycling along the Niagara Parkway and vineyards to enjoying all culinary delights of the region, from choosing a challenging golf game at Legends of Niagara to introducing golf to our children at Peach Tree golf course or enjoying a lakeside scenic executive game at the oldest golf course in North America right in town, enjoying a street party, the theatre, a concert or a night at the casino to taking the children to living museums, waterparks or hiking, from outlet shopping, to art galleries and endless specialty shops, this and so many more activities for all ages and stages and tastes - there's something for everyone. The feel of the town and the region has been a great way to re-energized just an hour away from the Toronto area - like a vacation to another world without the stress of a long commute. We fell in love with this spot so many years ago and continue to enjoy all it has to offer. As such, we finally purchased a home here that has a relaxed, casual feel. We trust that you will feel the same in our home and in this beautiful little town. We chose this particular property because it is walking distance to everything but just far away enough from the busy downtown street that there will not be too many people parking and walking on the street. It is a quiet residential area but there are a variety of restaurants (from an award winning restaurant to a local neighbourhood sports bar), a bakery, bike rentals, parks and so much more just a block away. It is a 15 minute walk to the golf course and lake and a 15 minute walk to tennis courts and downtown Queen Street with shops, theatres and restaurants.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with this home because of the open and casual feel. It is perfect for families and friends alike with open common areas where you can be separate yet connected - with a main living area and a family room area separated by a half story stairwell. There is lots of parking such that we can all arrive and depart with our own cars based on our own individual busy schedules. We prefer the location because we love to walk and like the quiet nights and mornings the area affords - just beyond the summer crowds on Queen St. yet there are many amenities just a block away.

vrbo At NOTL = gr8⏱
We thoroughly enjoyed our too short stay. Bike riding, winery tastings, great food & drink . We ate twice at the golf course- some of our best meals ever! The ambiance of the old town is so enjoyable -There is something for everyone. The cow ice cream shop has outrageous cones. Walkers fruit stand - outstanding pies & fresh cooked corn on the cob. Some of us swam in Lake Ontario watching the sunset at Ryerson Park. I had previously visited here to take advantage of the Shaw festival. This time we weren’t able to but the town is worth visiting for whatever type of vacation you want.
At least four reasons to enjoy.
Delightful for those people who want to step away from the crowds and recharge. We loved having the restaurant/bar just 3 or 4 houses up the street. Our young people(late 50's) walked uptown;. we(in our 80's)) could not. Loved the back porch.
Clean, great location
The property manager is super nice and quick response.
It was really clean and great location!
I wish I could stay longer!
Perfect for families
This house was perfectly located and very family friendly. The only criticism we have is not about the house, but the location being right near a very busy bar. The patrons didn’t bother us, but it made the street very busy in the evenings and people parked in front of the house.
Great location, all amenities included. Very clean .
Communication a little frustrating because I had to ask for info that was promised to be sent and wasnt sent. ( check in code, time of host visiting changed several times and delay in response times for inquiries
Great House & Location!
We stayed for an extended weekend with a wedding in Niagara on the Lake. I am a current VRBO property owner of two properties myself. This house is a great location to downtown. You can walk, ride a bike or drive a few blocks. A restaurant and a Tim Hortons just a few minute walk from the house. Very clean and comfortable house. Also, very well maintained and taken care. We had two families with 7 total that stayed. We all had a great stay and hope to get back in the future. Thanks again!
