Your home in the heart of Old Town
The Town Cottage has again been renovated and another 3 piece bathroom has been added.

The Town Cottage is situated on historic Prideaux Street in the heart of Old Town Niagara-on-the-Lake.


A quiet retreat with horse drawn carriages passing the front door. Just steps away from Queen Street's many shops and restaurants and a short walk to Queen's Royal Park where Lake Ontario meets the mighty Niagara River make The Town Cottage a perfect location.

3 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, bungalow style cottage boasts a modern fully-equipped open concept kitchen with adjoining dining room. The living room with its large comfy couch and wood-burning fireplace make it a perfect place to curl up and relax.

The National Geographic Traveler Magazine just rated Niagara-on-the-Lake as one of the top "Historic Destinations" in Canada and number 52 in the world!

The survey was put together by a panel of 280 well traveled experts who evaluated each place based on such things as: aesthetic appeal; conditions of historic buildings; quality of tourist management; and social and cultural integrity, amongst others.

Their report states in part: "Niagara-on-the -Lake may be the most beautiful small city in Canada. Quite touristy, but it has done a great job of preserving its charm.."

Many thanks for a lovely stay at your cottage. You thought of everything so we could just relax and enjoy the beautiful cottage and the stunning town.

Very, very nice...a true "home away from home"!
We have stayed here several times and have always found the experience to be delightful! Very convenient to downtown, but private...a nice retreat at the end of a busy day around town. Much to be said for stoking up the fireplace and having that first cup of coffee in your own living room in the morning... Barb and Tony are very obliging in every way, if anything is ever found wanting, and are otherwise absolutely unobtrusive! RK  Ottawa

Great Niagara cycling and winery tour!
Thanks so much for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful cottage. We had a wonderful time and slept so well in the comfortable beds. A perfect holiday thanks to The Town Cottage. Thanks for all the "tips" that helped us enjoy the area wineries and great cycling routes! Rh - March 2011

Awesome in every way
I stayed with friends plus my medium sized dog. The location was perfect. Everything was easily within walking distance but far enough away not to be bothered by street noise from the main parts of the town. We also had the added benefit of the horse and carriage tours passing us by every once in a while. The cottage easily slept all of us with plenty of space for everybody. The amenities were fantastic and everything had been thought of. We were able to BBQ a veritable feast. This really was one of the nicest and most appointed cottages I have ever stayed in. Thank you Tony.


"The Town Cottage is neat and stylish, and has just the things you'd like to have for a short stay. We especially enjoyed the enclosed patio where we used the gas grill and ate meals on the outdoor table. The place is one block from the main street and two from the water. It's totally quiet in a lovely residential neighborhood. The owners live very close by and were quite helpful without being at all intrusive. We'd come back, and will, without hesitation. JF

"My mother and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Town Cottage. At 86 my mother has some mobility issues and the accommodations on one floor and the beautiful patio for relaxing really suited our needs. All the Niagara-on-the-Lake amenities, including the shows, were in easy walking distance. We both enjoyed the home-like setting and the convenience of making our own meals. There was lots of helpful information on hand which helped up plan our days. I would highly recommend the Town Cottage for anyone who is looking for the town at their doorstep but a bit of a home-like sanctuary to relax."

“We loved our stay at the Town Cottage. It was one of the most relaxing few days we have ever had. The cottage has all the modern conveniences yet has that “Niagara on the Lake charm”. We will certainly be back.”

”This place was great. We walked everywhere and had a wonderful time.
We have stayed in many places here in Niagara on the Lake, but the Town Cottage was “The Best”.

“What a wonderful stay at the Town Cottage! This is our first trip to NOTL and we loved it! Our only complaint is that it wasn’t long enough. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in an amazing location. We are sure to be back again.”

“Great cottage. It was perfect for us.
You managed to think of everything- coffee, soap, internet, free phone to the States.
Made our vacation so pleasurable. Thanks

“What a lovely cottage! Thank you for the grand abundance of information about the town and region.  You made our visit easy and added to our great pleasure in visiting the marvelous town and savouring the Shaw Festival.”

“Our stay at the Town Cottage has been thoroughly enjoyable. We say plays at the Shaw, walked all over, and ate great meals here at the cottage and out. It has been entirely comfortable and homey. We hope to return next summer. Thank you so much!”
S.B. Shaker Heights  Oh.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for having us at The Town Cottage earlier in May.  I had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed our second visit to Niagara. Your gorgeous cottage was a perfect compliment to the the charm of Niagara-on-the-Lake, particularly with the tulips and blossom trees in full bloom. 
The restaurant recommendations you provided were very helpful - we shared a drink with the locals at The Angel and had a delicious dinner at the Riverbend Inn. Based on your suggestion,  the boys  went on the whirlpool jet boat and they had a fantastic time (albeit a rather wet form of fun)!
We look forward to returning to your beautiful town and renting The Town Cottage again when we next have the opportunity for a  week or long weekend away.

We really loved our very special stay at your beautiful cottage. What a charming place in just the right location to explore the pretty Niagara on the Lake on foot. I'm so pleased to have found your site on the web and the cottage experience was way more than promised.
We'll be back to stay at The Town Cottage
