  Lakeview c1880

        Built in 1880, our home is one of Niagara's "Chautauqua" cottages.  Although the Chautauqua, ceased operation in 1900, Lakeview continued as a summer residence until 1956.  First called the Swiss Chalet, guests were welcomed during the 1920's and 30's for afternoon tea and lunches. Rooms were also available for the weary traveler.

        This year marks the sixty-ninth year that our family has owned Lakeview.  Jim and I purchased it from his parents in 1984.  We also celebrate the thirty-second year that we have greeted friends to our home just a few short steps to the beach.

        Your day begins with a full breakfast served in the sun room overlooking Lake Ontario.  Breakfast will include fruit in season, coffee, tea, juice, homemade breads and muffins, Niagara jams and jellies, and entree.  After dining, the town is just a short walk or ride away.   

        The way to see Niagara-on-the-Lake is at a leisurely and thoughtful pace.  Let our home be your central holiday location for winery tours, golf, cycling, dining and of course the Shaw Festival.  There are so many things to do in Niagara-on-the-Lake.  Taste a new wine at one of our many award winning wineries.  Take a walking tour provided by the staff at Canada's first museum.  Step into history at Fort George where re-enactments are staged throughout the year.  If you seek excitement, see the Niagara River up close on a Whirlpool Jet boat or rent a kayak at Niagara Kayak.

        We are so proud that Niagara-on-the-Lake sets the gold standard for the international Communities in Bloom competition.  Our town won gold in the medium size towns category for the world in 2017.  We are very proud of the way our town and our neighbours take care of their yards and gardens.  Hopefully, you will enjoy walking around our community to see so many wonderful gardens.

        For things to do, our activities page will link you to many of Niagara's best attractions.  If you need reservations for theatre, golf or dining, we can make them for you.  Just let us know.

        We also offer free secure wifi throughout the house, should you need to check your mail. 

Lake Ontario sunsets are spectacular when viewed from the verandah or in our Adirondack chairs on the front lawn.

        We look forward to welcoming you to our home in Niagara-on-the-Lake.  Let us help to make your trip to Niagara a holiday to remember.
