A perfect place to change your point of view, rest or play and access to the many attractions of the Niagara Region. Just up from the shore of Lake Erie the cottage is a quaint 2 bedroom - fully furnished with all that you need to rejuvenate.

The Space

This cozy cottage is in Ridgeway Ontario Canada is just west of Fort Erie and the American border (the Peace Bridge and Buffalo N.Y) and just south by 20 min from Niagara Falls. Ridgeway is a cute little Ontario town - the cottage in summer is full with summer fun just up from the beach and in winter is quaint, meditative and quiet - great for long walks and deep thoughts - September the lake water is still warm for swimming and its a bit quitter on the beach.
Although we are willing to accommodate 4 or 5 day rentals we prefer weekly and monthly rentals - However we are happy to communicate and accommodate all proposals.
In summer time (May 15 to Sept 15) when the beach sand warms up the price is almost double that of the early spring, fall and winter - the area is lovely at this time of year as well. Peak times will be June through end of August. Please check our weekly and monthly prices for those times. This cottage is great for family summer vacations and/or adults who need time away.
Whether you are interested in tranquility or summer fun the cottage is great.

Guest Access

At this time the cottage is set up with internet but no cable. The families that stayed here in the summer months liked it that way. It would get the kids out of the house rather than in front of the TV. It is easy to add netflicks if you need movies and tv series, just ask. We are willing to set you up with services to combat the wintertime blues - let us know. We usually meet guests at the cottage to check in and out.
This place is a great getaway in Ontario Canada. Great for personal get aways if you want to get that writing done - a number of writers have written in the comfy swivel rockers - an inspiring space.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We loved our stay! The cottage is cozy, clean and it is situated in a lovely area. It is approximately 20 mins drive to Niagara falls. The cottage is well equipped, and nicely decorated. Gerry is a wonderful host. unfortunately we didn't have the opportunity to meet him face to face but he made sure that everything was ok. I would recommend this cottage to everyone and I will definitely stay here if we come to this region again

  • The cottage is very nice and homey. Gerry was extremely helpful and accommodating in terms of check-in time, etc. He was also kind enough to have provided some fruits and chocolates in the fridge, etc. I came back for another stay based on how generous the host is as well as the brilliant location. There is a seemingly infinite trail a couple of minutes from the cottage (Friendship trail) which is perfect or biking and run/jog/walks. Also the beach is a 5 minute walk and is equally great for outdoor activities.

  • Gerry is a great host! He was a pleasure to communicate with. Very easy for us to contact him with any questions, before and during our stay. He took me and my mother in at short notice and was really helpful with the planning of our trip to Canada. He figured out the best way to reach the cottage and was there when we arrived. He even drove us to the grocery store because we didn’t have a car.
    The cottage is wonderful and really cosy! It is tastefully decorated. A very good place to relax and to contemplate. And it is actually quite spacious. Good beds and a new and comfortable bathroom which you would not expect in a cottage.
    The area is nice and perfect for long walks or hiking/ bicycling but for public transportation you have to be patient.
    Would recommend the experience to anyone!

  • We had a wonderful time at the cottage. It was perfect for a mid-winter break. Gerry was great - he replied promptly and made sure we had a great stay.
