Description of the Niagara-on-the-Lake vacation cottage rental
Auntie's Little Yellow cottage is your home away from home. With 10 minute drive from the old historic town of Niagara-on the lake, stay in the "real" Niagara- God's Country. After a long day of seeing the tourist attractions in the region, drive up a classic farm road, before passing an organic farm to pick up your vegetables for a healthy meal. Continue pass sunflower fields, peach orchards and a vineyard to find Auntie's Place right on Lake Ontario. On clear days and nights you can see the skyline of Toronto directly across the lake. Plan to sip your newly discovered favourite local bottle of wine during the most spectacular sunsets, while dad is grilling on the BBQ, and the kids are running and playing in the large yard. Go for walks along the shores and explore. Auntie has outdoor games and activity ideas for the kids as she was a teacher for 15 years just let her know your child's age and interests. For example, bring your iPad (Internet available) to explore the planets and stars at night while being warmed by a campfire (marshmallows provided). For the musicians, Auntie has an acoustic guitar for campfire sing alongs! Wake up to the song of birds in the garden and the waves rolling a shore ready to go for your next day of adventures. If you miss your garden at home Auntie would be thrilled if you would talk to her vegetables and pick some for yourself to enjoy. Movies, bikes and paddle boards can be rented for an additional fee. Fridge, stove and pantry with the basics available for your comfort and convince, as cooking at home with the local fare is a treat, healthy and extremely affordable. While Auntie loves dogs, she wants to shabby chic white cottage clean for you and others, so sorry Rover, next trip. This also means no smoking please.

Area Information
Yes, you can visit one of the natural wonders of the world- Niagara Falls. Try going at night when there are less crowds, and you are out of the heat. The Falls are illuminated then and on weekends you can see a magnificent fireworks display.

With less than a five minute drive mum and the girls are at the brand new Outlet mall shopping while Dad and the boys are at a driving range (or visa versa).

Niagara is wine country and now breweries as well. Whether you are looking for wineries in the Niagara Region, or a specific winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Niagara wineries are a 'must visit'. Enjoy a beautiful country picnic with a bit of food and drink plan your own Niagara wine tour or visit to Happy Rolph's by bike. It will keep the kids entertained and exhausted, so you can enjoy that bottle back at the cottage.

A short bike ride from Aunties to Happy Rolph's Bird Sanctuary is a fun "not so touristie" attraction. It is a 15.06-acre municipal park on the shores of Lake Ontario. View one of Canadas most exotic collections of flowering rhododendrons. There is also a petting farm, which includes chickens, pigs, horses, rabbits, sheep, goats, llamas, as well as a donkey named 'Hoti' -- 'Don Quixote'. Hundreds of ducks, geese and native birds live in the sanctuary's nearby pond. The pond's inlet, sheltered by evergreens and bordered by grassy banks and willow trees, offers food and shelter for the resident waterfowl and migratory birds (also seen from aunties back yard). There are pathways to the lake, bird feeders, and a barn. It is an ideal location for families to spend a day picnicking and visiting the animals. There are washrooms, a snack bar and a pavilion with plenty of picnic tables.

There is so much to do. The list is endless, historic visits to Fort George where the war of 1812 took place, Butterfly Conservatory, the casino (babysitting by Grandma available).
