Cozy comfortable cottage

This cottage was very comfortable with air conditioning. One bedroom had a king sized bed with good mattress and the other had a Daphne's also comfortable. The garden out back was very private and was a pleasant place to sit. The furnishings and decor are somewhat tired and fussy. But one can ignore that. The checkin process was complicated and dif...

Thank you for your review. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found the beds to be comfortable. I don't quite know what you mean by the cottage being "tired". Our circa 1871 heritage cottage, has original pine floors, doors and windows. The rest of the cottage has handcrafted furniture and period pieces. Our garden is a natural overgrown oasis, and mini forest full of overgrown perennials that are 100 years old. We have so many guests return year after year to enjoy both the heritage feel of both our garden and cottage. We pride ourselves as being a "one of a kind" property in Niagara on the Lake. We've been hosting guests since 2000. I look forward to you staying with us again. Kind Regards Maria Rekrut

Poorly represented in advertisement

We have stayed in many vacation rentals by owners in Canada, the U.K., Italy, Prague, etc and this was the worst experience to date. From the moment we drove up to the home, it was clear that we had made a poor choice in the selection. The yard was overgrown and contained urns and window boxes with faded plastic flowers. The walk to the front door... Read More

I'm sorry but I don't have you listed as one of our guests coming through CanadaStays. Therefore I don't understand how you were able to leave a review on this website. I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay with us, and that you didn't find your stay pleasant. You mention the walk to the front door looked like it was abandoned. I guess if you think that the flowers and ferns that are on either side of the walk way gave you the feeling of it being abandoned, I don't quite know how you got that impression. Other guests find the walk way very charming. I'm sorry that you won't be staying with us again, but once again, I can't find a reservation made by you through CanadaStays. Regards Maria

Loved our Stay - What a Lovely Heritage Cottage

Thank you for your great review, I appreciate you taking the time to write your review and I'm delighted that you found our cottage to be "fantastic and cozy". I'm also happy to hear that you found us a pleasure to deal with and that you would 100% stay with us again. We pride ourselves in offering a very unique product and experience and we strive to make our customers feel at home and enjoy their stay with us. We've been offering our very unique heritage cottage rental since 2000 and we have many guests from all over the world who come year after year to enjoy our very unique heritage cottage and our lovely natural 100% green mini forest. I've owned the cottage since 1988 and I've been lovingly restoring it since then. My natural and 100% organic garden has been my project since 1988 and I've been adding perennial flowers and trees for all of those years. Some trees are 100 years old. The cottage was built in 1871 and we have the cottage furnished with hand crafted furniture built by a Master Carpenter and Artist from Florence, Italy. We offer our guests a very singular, cozy and tranquil stay. I look forward to having you return once again and I look forward to meeting you personally. Cheers Maria Rekrut


Liked the antique interior but a lot of little things needing repair and needs a good cleaning - fans, lights, baseboards, etc Location and convenience excellent - a bit over priced for what you get.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review about your stay. I'm delighted that you liked our antique interior. Our house was built in 1871 and any house that old isn't perfect, and I would expect that our guests would understand that. Thank you for mentioning about the dust you noticed on the fans, lights and baseboards, I'll have to make sure that our cleaning staff take care of this oversight. I'm glad that you found our location and convenience excellent. Our prices vary with time of year. If you come in our low season the rates are lower and if you come during our high season the rates are higher. I don't know when you stayed with us so I can't comment on your statement of our cottage being overpriced for what you get. We have guests returning to stay with us since 2000 who find that our cottage is very moderately priced. I guess it depends on your own personal budget. Thanks for your review, I appreciate all reviews of my property from guests who have stayed with us in the past and I look forward to having you return and stay with us again. Regards, Maria

Very disappointing

This was very disappointing. The write up and pictures were not at all a true picture of the condition of this rental. The home was not as advertised. The yard was very overgrown and unkept and had plastic flowers in the flower boxes and urns. The furnishings in the living room consisted of a cheap college dorm looking metal couch and an outdat...

Thank you very much for taking the time to review my property. I wanted to point some aspects of my Heritage Cottage Rental that anyone reading this review may be interested in knowing. My Niagara Heritage Cottage Rental was built in 1871 and I have been lovingly restoring it since 1988 when I purchased it. The photos of both the inside and outside of my cottage were taken by a professional photographer so I don't understand what you mean by and I I've taken your quote: "The write up and pictures were not at all a true picture of the condition of this rental. You mentioned about our garden. Please note that our garden changes with the seasons of the year and that's because it's a perennial garden. So the fact that it looks different is because it changes all year around. When you made your reservation, we sent you both the inside and outside of the garden videos for you to become familiar with our property. Yes, the garden is overgrown, and that has been done on purpose. This is my vision of what a garden would have looked like in 1871. The furnishings in the sitting room consist of a number of hand crafted period furniture pieces built by a Canadian/Florentine Artist/Master Craftsman. We have a futon that is used when we have extra guests wanting to stay with us and a comfortable couch. These have been used for practical purposes, otherwise I would have preferred period couches but that wouldn't be comfortable for our guests to enjoy. The shower door leaks only if our guests don't pull the shower door tightly behind them, as it would in any home. Please note that we are a licensed cottage and we have inspections done on a regular basis to ensure the safety of our electrical wiring. I thank you very much for taking the time to write your review and I thank you for giving me the opportunity to address your concerns. I look forward to having you stay with us again and to enjoy our very unique cottage, now that I've explained my vision of my heritage cottage. Cheers, Maria
