About Elsie Mae Clements
We have always loved visiting Niagara-on-the-Lake as our get away place from our busy work schedules. Its just an hour's drive from home, but it feels like we are in a different world! Our favourite things to do in town is to visit the wineries and breweries that are on the bike trails. Then maybe take a stroll to Ryerson park and watch the sunset over Toronto!
Why Elsie Mae Clements chose
When we first came to Niagara-on-the-Lake we fell in love with the historic area and the waterfront that is in and around Queen St. But the more often we visited the more we explored and found all these wonderful neighborhoods! Our goal was to purchase a home that offered all the conveniences of a modern build but had the charm of Niagara-on-the-Lake. We soon discovered that there are many different and just as nice "charm" in areas that are still an easy walk or bike to Queen St. The area that spoke to us most is an historic area that has roots dating back to late 18th century but wasn't developed until the founders of the Chautauqua, NY decided to build their summer residences here. Our vacation home is very close to Ryerson Park that has access to the water and the best part of our location is that we back on to a National Conservation area. The first morning that I saw the mist rise from the meadow behind us, I knew we had made the right decision. We've had several seasons of glorious sunsets and love to ride our bikes. We also have discovered several great restaurants that are within a 5 to 10 minute stroll. The bike path that connects to the winery trail is just at the end of the street!
What makes this Cottage unique
Location Location Location!! What else can I say?? For the first time visitors to Niagara-on-the-Lake the charm of Queen St is so attractive and we are about a 5 minute drive or a 1/2 hour walk to the shops, theater and restaurants. However Niagara-on-the-Lake has so much more to offer. This region is full of wineries, craft breweries, parks, trails, antique stores, farm stands, and so much more. The best way to explore the region is on a bike, but a car is nice if you plan to purchase quantities of wine, beer or that perfect garden gnome! We are located really close to the waterfront which has access to Ryerson Park. This is where you look west over lake Ontario and see the Toronto Skyline! Or the big ships coming and going through the Welland Canal. My favorite thing though is just to kick back and relax in our back yard. For the early riser, the morning mist over the meadow is magical with birds singing and sometimes deer and wild turkeys out looking for breakfast. There is a wire fence that separates us from the Conservation Area so it keeps the back yard secure but doesn't obstruct the view. Since our back porch faces west we get the sun setting right in our meadow view. Any season offers the spectacular and every changing display and golds, reds, yellows and hues of purple as the sun slips down. This is the spot I like best to sit with my friends and family to enjoy a great glass of wine!

As a family of four we wanted something cosy, comfortable and quiet with wifi access and walking distance to town. It was perfect, nicely furnished, light and airy and exactly what we hoped for. Being able to walk into the centre of town meant we didn’t have to hunt for a parking space, which was especially busy at the weekends. All in all a great base for our holiday.
Very impressed with the property and the provisions of this house.
We spent three enjoyable days in NOTL celebrating a special event with family.
Will definitely consider this property for future visits.
Glad that you enjoyed your stay at La Vignette. Hope to welcome you back.
Perfect for our needs ... great location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The location met our needs. The property was very comfortable for the six of us. The kitchen had plenty of place service, pans and cookware.
Elsie was very easy to work with.
Best VRBO we have rented in NOTL!!!
Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Hope you're able to come back again.
Great place to stay! My family loved it! It was exactly like the listing with exception of back yard. The patio furniture was dirty. It needs to be kept clean like the house!
Thanks for letting us know about the patio furniture. We'll be sure to take extra care out there before our next guests.
A great vacation in beautiful NOTL
We spent a great week at the house. It was clean, cozy and well equipped with everything we could possibly need for our stay. Although it looks small from the outside, it was plenty of space for 4 of us. Everybody enjoyed looking at the flowers in the garden ! It is difficult to imaging a better location: a quiet neighbourhood and yet steps away from the town centre, a few minutes walk to a small but very nice Ryerson park.
We would definitely recommend this kept with great care property to our friends. Thank you !
Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at La Vignette.
