About this listing
You have the choice in this room of having a king bed or 2 twin beds.
You can stargaze from your pillows and have magical sky views in the early morning through sleepy eyes.
The room looks south towards the Twenty Valley and the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Bruce Trail, Canada's longest and oldest continuous footpath runs along the edge of the escarpment. I am willing to drive hikers to the start of their hike so that they can hike to their car and drive back at the end of the day.
We have 2 more bedrooms that will accommodate 5 more people. The Escarpment Room and the Red Squirrel Room.
We are on the Twenty Mile Creek and there is a bike, canoe, kayak and even a dragon boat rental marina just down the road by the strawberry farm. You could paddle to Harbour Estates Winery, dock and then follow the wooden carvings, guiding you along the path to their winery!
There are different bike routes and bike maps to take you through the countryside visiting wineries and parks. And the Greater Niagara Circle Route and the Welland Canal Parkway allow you to bike away from traffic.
We are only 20 minutes away from Niagara Falls and a stunning hike in the Niagara Glen. This is where Niagara Falls fell 8,000 years ago before it continued on its path of eroding the gorge. Imagine flipping a switch that shut off the falls, and then waving a magic wand to add trees, ferns, wildflowers to the dramatic landscape. You can hike through the ancient plunge pools and see potholes and discover ant lions, tulip trees and rare ferns such as the walking fern. I own a company called Niagara Nature, Wine & Garden Tours so could guide you if you wanted a naturalist along!
Interaction with guests
This is my home so I am here to welcome my guests and to interact as much or as little as they would like me to. They just have to let me know which!
Pets welcome for $35.00 per night (unless things go well, then just a one time fee of $35.00), but you must contact me to arrange sleeping arrangements and details. I was an animal nurse years ago so am happy to hangout and "babysit" your friend.
No smoking in the house.
Use coasters and trays for damp and wet items such as glasses, wine bottles etc.
Don't put damp towels on the wooden chairs and furniture.
More than anything I'd like to ask my guests to tell me if they have any concerns while they are with me, so their concerns can be resolved. I am open to feedback and appreciate kindness because this is my home, not a hotel : )
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund, including service fees.

I'm a naturalist, environmentalist type who loves organic gardening, music, dancing, hiking, swimming with my doggy Cedar and writing my nature column. Before I founded Niagara Nature Tours 16 years ago, I worked at Agriculture Canada in Ornamental Entomology. Worked there for 14 years at Vineland Research Station before I was downsized. I care passionately about the Niagara Peninsula and it's agricultural lands, green spaces and history.
My Niagara Nature Tours offers Wine, Garden, History, Agriculture and Nature Tours and Hikes. Custom made, just for you or your group!
