Best place to stay in Niagara on the Lake! Always feel at home here!

  • 5 of 5

A lot of snow fell during our stay over Christmas holidays! But it was very magical, the serenity, the snow on the branches, the Christmas lights in the neighbourhood!

Always so peaceful! My wife's second home!

Thank you so much Mike & Luisa

Great cottage

  • 4 of 5

We all loved this place, we stayed for 2 nights with our daughter, her husband, their 2 year old and her in-laws. The location is perfect, walking distance to the main street with all the shops and restaurants. The house was clean and very organised.

The only reason I gave it a 4 star is that it doesn't have a wood burning fire place and it seems to indicate that in the wright up, other than that I would strongly recommend it

Cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is adorable and very cozy! We took a trip from Massachusetts to see Niagara Falls, and we're so happy we stayed in Niagara-on-the-lake. The cottage is perfectly located for a day trip to see the Falls, taste wine along the Niagara Parkway, and walk into the village for shopping and dining. It was so pleasant to sit on the porch in the morning and evening and enjoy the peaceful neighborhood. We would definitely return to the cottage when visiting the area!

Perfect retreat in historic NOTL

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Swinton Cottage many times over the years and always enjoy the many special touches provided to make us feel comfortable and instantly "at home". It's just a short walk to any of the Shaw Festival theatres and shops. The kitchen is well equipped. The front porch is the perfect spot to sit with enough privacy and quiet for reading and conversation, or to people-watch! The back yard, with its large table and many chairs, is ideal for outdoor dining, and completely private. It's one of the prettiest little houses in NOTL. We look forward to our next visit!
