’Fantastic cottage in wonderful NOTL’

Aug 2014 UK

Butterfly Cottage was a fantastic cottage and true home from home in which the whole family could relax. Situated in a quiet, safe residential area just a few minutes walk from the lake and walking distance to the town centre, the cottage is spacious and has everything needed including gas barbecue.

Niagara on the lake is truly gorgeous, with great places to stop for coffee, ice creams and dining. The ghost walk was also a relaxed pace and entertaining

A delightful cottage

Sep 2013 Anne (England)

A delightful cottage, we loved it! So full of character, we loved the ‘wrap around’ porch – being British!

So cosy and well equipped. Very convenient for lake, town, theatre and golf course. The town is one of the prettiest towns I have ever come across, the flowers are beautiful. We spent a very enjoyable evening at the theatre. A lovely holiday. Thank you to Nick and Alice.

‘Wonderful location and home’

Sep 2013

We had family from overseas stay here during our wedding festivities -- and the house and location were perfect. The wrap around deck had sun all day long, and the house was just out of the hustle and bustle of the tourists, yet everyone could walk everywhere they needed to be. Janet and her husband were amazing at helping organize everything, and were very attentive to our family's every need. We are grateful that they made everything so easy

The cottage exceeded our expectations! Thank you for the seamless arrival process and the well-stocked kitchen.



–J M Ohio and JW West Virginia, June 2012

Our stay here has been serendipitous. Every day we were sightseeing, we experienced much more that we anticipated. We enjoyed the downtown area, the glorious flowers and the splendid weather...your quaint cottage was the crowning touch.


“A haven of peace!”

– Katalin, QC

The cottage was very bright, airy, clean and well appointed. We felt relaxed as soon as we entered. It is within walking distance of lake Ontario and the bustling downtown NOTL and yet feels very peaceful. We visited all the tourist hot spots nearby but spent whole days at the cottage, just relaxing. The beds were very comfortable and there was lots of space for storing our stuff. The garden is a beautiful (tamed) jungle, full of butterflies and bird song. My husband particularly enjoyed going out after breakfast, to pick the ripe blackberries. Though we were five adults, we never felt cramped or crowded, there were many nooks and crannies where one could find a quiet spot to read or snooze.

Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend? Absolutely!


“Relaxing cottage the whole family enjoyed!”

– Altoona PAl March, 2011

My husband and I were traveling with our 2 young adult children, just out of college. We enjoyed the cottage with it's comfortable furnishings, out of the main traffic areas of Notl. Just a block back from the Lake, the cottage is in the middle of a peaceful neighborhood. The beds were comfortable, the space more than enough for the four of us. We enjoyed the gardens out back, that added privacy and a great view. The piano was a plus for our composer son, who used it often. The biggest plus, my husband lost his wedding ring, and the owners found it about three weeks later, and we were shocked to receive it in the mail! Great memories of this cosy cottage, nestled in a wonderful vacation spot!

Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend? Most likely.
