The Riesling cottage is situated at the back of a working farm and is surrounded by Lake Ontario to one side and orchards and vineyards to the other side. We are in the country but close to all shopping, restaurants and Niagara Falls and Niagara on the Lake is about a 20 minute drive away. We are about 2 km from the tourist village of Port Dalhousie where the world famous Henley Regatta (rowing) takes place.
The public transit is about 1 km down the road as we are so close to the edge of town. Our cottages are a nice change from a hotel where you can relax and enjoy the outdoors like it is your own home away from home.
Enjoy and relax, take care of our cottage like it's your own.
We had a lovely visit to the Riesling Cottage. and touring the local wineries. Beautiful location and very gracious hosts. The breakfast food was fantastic and the cottage was stocked with everything we needed.
The farm is sweet and the cottage is clean and pleasant. Fresh fruits and muffin were prepared when we arrived. We even make a fire near the lake shore to watch sunset. It's a wonderful trip here in Nokara farm. Thanks Kathryn & Joe.
What can we not say about our fantastic 3 day stay at Nokara Farm Reisling cottage. The accommodation was exceptional, the location and views were terrific, the hosts (Kathryn & Joe) were friendly and interested in their guests and the welcoming touches of muffins and a selection of other provisions were beyond expectation. Our only regret is that we did not stay for longer.
After booking, we immediately received an email from Kathryn with details about their cottage. It was incredibly helpful and obviously very well thought out. Upon arriving, we were blown away by the accommodations and attention to detail. Farmer Joe escorted us to our cabin and our jaws dropped when we saw the view - then they dropped again when we went inside. Kathryn and Joe were kind enough to stock fresh eggs from their farm, fresh cookies and muffins, snacks, coffee, and much more. We were only about 20 minutes from Niagara on the Lake, as well as the US Border, so seeing Niagara Falls was a breeze. Kathryn and Joe were incredibly friendly, even to the point of delivering more firewood when we ran out at 10pm and didn't want to stop enjoying the view! Thanks Kathryn and Joe! We can't wait to return!
Wonderful place on the lake, amazing view! Kathryn was a great host! It was a memorable stay!

Lovely place very clean. Kathyrn and her husband made us feel very welcome and were always at the end of the phone to answer any questions. The views are beautiful over the lake and we loved seeing the fruit farm. We had a fab time and will hopefully be back

About the Host, Kathryn
Nokara Farms is owned and operated by Joe & Kathryn Ferretti & Family. We began farming in 1975 on 36 acres just west of "Old Port Dalhousie". Since then we have added more acreage to our present total of 115 acres.
Our Farm consists of planted peaches, ranging from early varieties that ripen about the 3rd week in July, to later varieties ripening in September. We also grow, strawberries, pears, plums, pumpkins, apples, sweet corn, tomatoes and a variety of other vegetables. Grapes grown on our farm are harvested for wine making at Henry of Pelham Family Estate Winery.
Our Fruit Stand has been expanding over the last few years to include an on site farm bakery. You will find homemade canned goods as well as a variety of fruit pies and other baked goods.
Relax this summer at one of our five private lakeside cottages located in St. Catharines on the south shore of Lake Ontario, just minutes from Old Port Dalhousie and 20 minutes from Niagara Falls and Niagara-on -the-Lake.
