A great location, quiet and peaceful compared to our hometown in London, UK! We had a car so not far from winery's / old town or even Niagara Falls, and recommend a car is needed. Rooms were clean and decking was nice touch, just wish we could use the hot tub in the garden (wasn't sure if it was working but not in spec so guess not). Slight confusion on arrival dates and wifi but owner was responsive and promptly assisted. Finally Would have preferred cereal bowls and proper mugs, otherwise for a family of three there was enough to accommodate our needs.
