About John and Lorraine
1812 Cottages are historic cottages in the heart of Niagara-on-the-Lake with all the conveniences of home, thus our motto ... Historic Vacation Cottages (with Newfangled Conveniences).
Why John and Lorraine chose Historic Old Town
The Swayze cottage is named because of it's location beside the Angel Inn. There a historic ghost story of Captain Swayze who died in the Inn in during the War of 1812 and the cottage is on the grounds of his fiance. Enjoy all the conveniences of being in historic old town, while maintaining isolation and serenity.

A historic cottage with period charm. A lovely place, well appointed with kitchenette. This cottage is literally steps away from Queen St. It is a bit dark inside, lighting could be brighter. Overall, we enjoyed it!
Comfortable and convenient
We love staying at the Swayze and Court house cottages. We park the car for the weekend and find ourselves in the heart of Niagara-on-the-lake just a short walk from everything. In the mornings and between plays we enjoy relaxing in the gardens. Evenings we gather in the sitting rooms before retiring to the comfortable beds. A great place to stay with excellent amenities.
Thanks for the wonderful review. We love our little cottage and especially the location!
Lovely cottage in ideal location walking distance to everything in the picturesque Niagara-on-the-Lake and close by car to Niagara Falls and other tourist attractions in area. Well equipped and comfortable accommodation for up to 6 people. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Niagara area.
We love Swayze Cottage...it's location, it's comfortable beds, it's workable kitchen, it's porches.
We'll continue to go every year

This is a wonderfully located cottage that is very comfortable, clean and beautiful. It was very comfortable for all six of us and we had a great time.
Thank your for the kind words. The location is definitely one of the key features to the Swayze cottage. We love this beautiful little cottage and we are pleased to have been able to share it with you.

In 2012 we launched the 200th commemoration of the War of 1812. Last from 1812 to 1814, and was the only time any country invaded Canada. in 1814, the Town’s Bicentennial Committee will continue to host a range of historical re-enactments and special events dedicated to our role as a major battle site leading to the creation of modern-day Canada.
