About Janet Trogdon

But alas, my work has posted me abroad once again, so I am sharing my home-away-from-home with you! Please be my guest and make yourself comfortable! I would appreciate one thing though, if I might be so bold to ask? Please leave me a review on VRBO and tell me about your stay. I will enjoy Niagara-on-the-Lake vicariously through your postings!

I made my decision quickly to buy a home in Niagara-on-the-Lake and had a wonderful opportunity to purchase Gate Street Cottage. While it has good bones, it needed some TLC and I knew I was the one to bring this quaint cottage back to be a real gem. So through the tears, laughter and sweat, we managed to fully modernize the kitchens and bathrooms, tame the gardens, and uncovered all the treasures that Gate Street has to offer. My favourite thing to do is sit on the front veranda with a glass of wine and people watch while pretending to read a best seller!

Why Janet Trogdon chose Historic Old Town

While I lived in Canada, Niagara-on-the-Lake was a favourite spot for me to reunite with my friends and family. Centrally located between two major airports, it was a convenient place to meet. Little did I know that in my first visit I would fall in love with this town! The feeling I have when I am here is one of joy, contentment and peace of mind. In any season there is a sense of wonderland about it!

What makes this house unique

Location is unbeatable for convenience to shopping, dinning, theatres, spa, parks and water front. Just park the car and walk everywhere!

Sit on the front veranda and watch the horse drawn carriages go by while sipping your morning coffee or that last glass of wine for the evening!

The charm of yesteryear with all the comforts of modern day amenities makes Gate Street Cottage the perfect get-away place for six people. The master bedroom on the main floor has a set of super twins that can be made into a comfortable King bed. This home is perfect for couples, multi-generation families or the best friends get together. 3 bathrooms add to the convenience but the claw foot soaker tub has your name on it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the homely fell to this house and so well shocked with kitchen items. House was very cleaned and organized!

Such a beautiful town, the flowers are just so wonderful and the shops are lovely. Had a lovely time with our daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandchildren.

We can't wait to return to Gate Street Cottage!

Great Location

  • 3 of 5

Property space fine.

The house needs a major "airing out" the stale musty odor particularly on the first floor was unpleasant

Ants in kitchen area and on counter top

Windows and window ledges dirty and not properly screened to allow opening of windows to enjoy the fresh air

All in all we suggest a good bit more TLC

The freezer needs defrosting

We did enjoy your beautiful city!!

Owner's Response: Hi! We appreciate the time you took to make the review! In the summer this house is so popular that we have guests checking out in the morning and then checking in in the afternoon, so there isn't time to defrost the freezer between guests but we do try! Ants are a challenge in any home especially if food is left out on the counter. We do ask that you let us know while you are checked in so that we can attend to them as best we can. We have had such a dry summer that the dust has made it a challenge to keep up with. The dirt gets in between the the windows and in old houses you have to take out the exterior portions and clean them. This is a big job so it only gets done once a year. We have never had a musty ordour in this house before. We have checked it through and can't find any trace of musty smells anywhere in the house?? Letting us know your concerns while you are checked in, give us a chance to rectify the issues while you are here. As well as make sure that they are resolved for the next guest. I am sure you can imagine, how frustrating it is if us to learn of these issues in a review. Most of these concerns are all simple fixes! Hopefully you will come back and see that we have made every effort to make your stay comfortable! Janet and Eric Niagara Holiday Rentals

Great location and lovely home.

  • 5 of 5

The house is well maintained and enjoyable for a visit. Kitchen is well equipped. Experience in the back garden would be enhanced by some attention to the planting’s and landscaping. It is a tad overgrown.

Restaurants within walking distance were fabulous including Backyard,(Try the incredible tasting menu)Prince of Wales Hotel for breakfast & many others. This town is a foodie heaven! Shaw Festival was just an outstanding experience!

Great location. Nicely furnished. Adequate kitchen. Worked out well for three couples.

  • 5 of 5

Overall, we enjoyed our stay. So convenient to the theatre, shopping and wonderful restaurants. We would suggest you add ceiling fans to upstairs rooms as the air conditioner does not adequately cool the upstairs.

Lovely home and great location

  • 5 of 5

With three bedrooms and three bathrooms, a perfect home for three couples. Location right off of Queen Street is fabulous. The house is very comfortable and has all the amenities one could want. We loved sitting on the porch with wine from the nearby vineyards and cheese from the wonderful cheese shop in town.

Leisure Activities:


Gate Street Cottage is one of the most popular vacation homes in town! Why you ask? Location, charm, modern amenities, front porch, gardens and a bathroom for everyone! This is a fully modernized 100 year old cottage that is just a few steps from Queen Street, the main shopping, theatre, dining, parks and river area. The grocery store is almost at the end of your drive way! If you are a shopper then you can shop until you almost drop because your home-away-from-home is just a few steps away! Love the theatre; you can even walk there in your high heeled shoes! That’s how close it is! Now you are probably thinking maybe to close? Well this is a small town and not much excitement happens here other than the clip clop of the horse drawn carriages going by! This quiet quaint town is safe and charming and that is the way we like to keep it!

Not a shopper or a theatre buff? Then you still have lots to do at your door step! At the end of the street, literally a 2 minute walk is the oldest golf course in North America, Niagara-on-the-Lake Golf Club – better book your T-off times now! Also at the end of the street is a 5 star spa. The dining is amazing too, from chefs staring on the Food Network, to local family style dining, to shopping local at the all the food boutique shops and cooking it back at your vacation home, this is a foodie paradise!

Enter into Gate Street cottage from the covered front veranda and you step into a bright comfortable and spacious living area. The big screen TV is seldom used! The Living area is open to the the dining and fully modern well equipped kitchen! This is a shot gun style home because it’s a straight shot from the front door to the back! Go out the back door from the kitchen and there is a beautiful garden complete with patio furniture, deck and a bbq/grill! Also on the main floor is a beautiful huge bedroom with en suite. This is a room that has super twin beds that can be converted into a comfy cozy King bed. Main floor laundry for those who feel compelled to do laundry on holiday – well at least its convenient for you and you won’t miss any of the action while doing your chores!

Upstairs offers the two other bedrooms both with ensuites. The front bedroom has a King bed, a lovely sitting area and lots of space to move around! The bath room has a stand alone shower, and a claw foot tub, is perfect to relax in and soak your cares away! The other bedroom is a luxurious Queen bed with antique cabinet for the sink and a tub/shower combination.

We offer the luxury in bed linens so that you can get a wonderful relaxed sleep which is the perfect end to your day of exploring and enjoying this town while living like a local!

The gardens are professionally cared for and we have some herbs planted for you. Everything about Gate Street is specially designed, planned and done with you in mind. All you have to do is book it!
