About Darla Koop

My husband, Peter, and I enjoy renovating houses, finding the hidden potential in them. We love living in the beautiful town of Niagara-on-the-Lake and spending evenings walking past the lovely homes in town.

~A tribute to Darla~

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of my beautiful wife & soul-mate, and loving mother to our four children, Darla.

Her talent & passion for decorating, and her desire to please our guests with her gracious hospitality has elevated our business to the high standards that it holds today.

It is our intention to carry on her labour of love, upholding these high standards & warm hospitality…..the way Darla would have wanted us to.

We look forward to meeting you at the cottage,

Peter & the kids

Darla Koop purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Darla Koop chose Historic Old Town

Our house is in the country so we have traditionally taken our children trick-or-treating in this quaint neighborhood. It has a wonderful, neighborly, small town feel.

What makes this cottage unique

The beautiful stone fireplace is the centrepiece of this house and why we purchased it despite the odd floor plan (which we have since corrected).

Convenient and comfortable Cottage ambience perfect for our NOTL family reunion.

Kitchen was well stocked with condiments; being able to prepare a few meals was a great break from restaurants though there are numerous excellent choices within walking.

Holiday escape

  • 5 of 5

Quaint cottage. Had everything two couples needed to enjoy a two night stay in NOTL.

Walkable distance to Historic main street. Loved that it was pet friendly. Peter met us and was there first thing the morning after a snowfall to clear the driveway. Beds were comfy and the kitchen well equipped. No need to choose a hotel when a property like this is available. Would definitely stay again.

Quaint, warm, and clean

Our 2nd experience at the Hamlet Cottage in 2017. Highly recommended for a brief stay-over, especially in the off seasons. Close to the lake to view awesome sunsets, fully equipped, quiet neighbourhood.
