A weekly vacation rental located in a peaceful picturesque neighbourhood on the edge of the old town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, close to Mississauga beach and Ryerson Park, this quaint turn of the century three bedroom gothic cottage farmhouse with original pine floors is furnished with antiques and has a sunny enclosed private garden with a heated pool surrounded by perennials, trellises and 100 year old trees.

Away from the downtown crowds, it is just minutes from the Niagara-on-the-Lake golf course, main street shopping, Niagara wineries, historic Fort George, Fort Mississauga, the Royal George Theatre and the Shaw Festival Theatre. Meticulously restored and maintained, it has a delightful charm that will make you feel instantly at home. Stroll down to the beach in this relaxing neighborhood and watch the evening sun set over the lake. Take a walk around the lanes and see the remaining Chautauqua cottages built late in the 19th century when the area was a summer resort.

The cottage is located on what was originally William Crooks Farm. The area was once known as Crookston and was the location of a bloody battle on May 27, 1813 when the American forces invaded the area. In the late 19th century, Crooks Farm became a popular summer resort with assembly grounds for Chautauqua events that were well attended by the Toronto literati. Steamers crossed Lake Ontario to bring summer residents to the Niagara on the Lake Chautauqua to attend educational programs, concerts and lectures. Eventually the Chautauqua was replaced with summer cottages and the relaxing summer cottage atmosphere still remains to this day.

Nearby wineries include Peller Estates Winery, Inniskillin Winery, Jackson-Triggs Winery, Hillebrand Estates Winery, Konzelmann Winery, Reif Estate Winery, Stratus Winery, Stonechurch Vineyards and Strewn Winery.
