Niagara on the Lake Cottage Rental Garden

Niagara on the Lake Cottage Rental garden is slowly going into the Autumn stage, which means that this video shows the garden in full bloom in July. It doesn't look quite as beautiful as this video, although my Trumpet Vine has been blooming since July!! 

Still nice to view and enjoy and wait for next years full bloom!!  

Enjoy my newest video, and wish you were here.

Booking.com - Review of Niagara on the Lake Cottage Rental

This is the Newest review for Niagara on the Lake Cottage Rental at http://niagaraonthelakecottagerental.com/ that was posted on Booking.com

Adam Family, United Kingdom, 18 June 2014

We found the cottage to be well maintained and very reasonably priced! After spending 2 nights in a local hotel round the corner I wish I found this cottage sooner and spent all 4 nights there! Beautiful cottage in a beautiful town, had the best time in the short 2 days in the cottage! Highly recommend this to anyone looking for accommodation in the area! 5 star, first class!

Monday Morning in Niagara on the Lake

Good Monday Morning to Everyone

What a lovely hot sun filled morning it is here in Niagara on the Lake. I'm here enjoying the sunshine and sharing some upcoming activities for the month of September. 

I know you probably think that there's nothing to do in Niagara once the long weekend has come and gone. 

Well my dear friends.  The tourist year is just starting in Niagara.  We have activities running all year round. 

For instance in September we have the Grape and Wine Festival.  You can visit all 24 Niagara Wineries and enjoy delicious food with your wine tastings.  You can get a pass that allows you free wine tastings ( normally you have to pay for tastings).  

You can cycle down the Niagara Parkway to pick up fresh fruit and vegetables. 

Downtown Niagara has a lovely show of flowers on the streets.   Visiting the local merchants, sitting down for a cappuccino or eating in out door cafés is a great way to spend an afternoon. 

I love to cycle and admire the beauty of Lake Ontario and I may even swim!!

See you Soon in Niagara

Niagara Dragon boaters take to water in Welland

Dragon boaters take to water in Welland

The 2014 Canadian Dragon Boat Championships took place this weekend in Welland. The International Flatwater Centre played host for the 8th annual event.

Dragon boat is the essence of team work, dedicated athletes working in perfect symmetry all charging for the finish line.

About 2,000 people and 84 crews took part in the competition.

“I have diabetes and it’s all gone,” said Manny Directo, a 74-year-old racer.
Dragon boat is for everyone regardless of athletic ability.

“Dragon boat is accessible. The most dynamic sport. Twenty people in boat. No rock stars. Everybody’s got the same job,” said one racer.

“It doesn’t matter what your journey in life is. People say I don’t have big enough arms. You know what, anybody can do it,” said Jordan Morgan, a national team athlete.

There are hardcore competitive racers and then there is those who just want to be sociable and have a good time.

Directo says the sport keeps him young. He says he’ll go until he’s 80. He says age shouldn’t be an excuse.

“Come on over. I was one like that. I can’t do it. I have arthritis. I’m too old…like this,” he said.

The course will host events for the 2015 Pan Am games in July, and according to athletes, it’s world class.

Niagara on the Lake Historical Cottage Rental

Maria Rekrut here from Niagara on the Lake Cottage Rental - I've lived in Niagara on the Lake for 30 years.  Even after all these years, I still find things to discover and enjoy. 

I purchased my adorable historical, shabby chic cottage in 1988 and lived in it until 2000. I started to rent out my cottage out in 2000  as a vacation rental and have been renting it out ever since.

When I purchased my property I always had the intention of renting my adorable cottage out as a vacation rental,  I did this so other visitors could stay overnight and enjoy Niagara at their leisure.

Niagara on the Lake a Place to Vist with it's Rich History

Niagara-on-the-Lake

A Rich History and an Exciting Future

Elegant, historic, and celebrated as the prettiest town in Canada, Niagara-on-the-Lake provides residents and visitors with access to an unsurpassed quality of life. Here, picturesque wine routes wind through lush orchards and vineyards, past beautiful heritage buildings, by Shaw Festival theatres, and across historic battlefields.

With many National Historic Sites, history certainly comes alive in this remarkable town. Originally the site of the neutral First Nations village of Onghiara and inhabited for over 10,000 years, Niagara-on-the-Lake has many historic highlights, such as the passing of the first anti-slavery legislation in the British Empire, as well as historic lows, such as being almost completely destroyed by fire during the War of 1812. At the centre of the town’s historic life is Fort George, the War of 1812 stronghold that today hosts vivid reenactments, lively fife and drums marches, and fascinating daily tours.
Niagara-on-the-Lake is also a town that is confidently striding into the future. Innovative and courageous present day pioneers are establishing award-winning wineries, producing delicious fruits and vegetables, inventing new dishes in superb restaurants, and providing visitors with access to fascinating shops, renowned Shaw Festival plays, and more.

In 1896, the Canadian author William Kirby wrote “Niagara is as near Heaven as any town whatever.” We absolutely agree!  http://thevillagetnd.com/our-story/niagara-on-the-lake

Niagara on the Lake - Sunday Morning

I'm a cyclist and have been cycling since I was 6 years old.  I love it.  One of my favourite rides is going through the town of Niagara on the Lake from one end to the other.  I usually start at Garrison Village drive, go on Lakeshore Road, go up Shakespeare Road until I get down to Lake Ontario. 

I then stay on that road, following the Lake and that way I cycle down to the centre of town.  Then I can either go up King
Street, until I get to Mary Street and then back to Lakeshore Road and then to Garrison Village Drive.

 I have a lot of other rides I'll share with you in the future. 

Come back to Http://niagaranews.blogspot.com to get more tips on other cycling trails to discover!!  Happy Cycling!!

How to Get your Vacation Rental to Wow your Guests!

How to Get your Vacation Rental to Wow your Guests!

Getting your vacation rental ready for the high season can be a very daunting and time consuming part of your vacation rental business. I’ve found that my low season is the best time to tackle larger projects such as painting, revamping and moving around furniture and updating bathrooms and kitchens.

In my off season I’ve also invited an interior designer to choose both wall colours and fabrics and bedding to give my vacation rental a more “boutique hotel” look.

On top of these renovations and updates done on the inside of your vacation rental there is a most often overlooked and forgotten part of most updates which is updating both your front and back yards. Remember to landscape and create “curb appeal”

Myself I’ve preferred perennial plants over annual plants when redoing my garden. Annuals will give you consistent flowers all summer long but in the fall and winter they’ll will die off and you’ll have to purchase more plants the following year.

On the other hand if you have perennials, your garden will ebb and flow with the season. Perennials will give your garden an ever changing collage of colours and plants. I find that my perennial garden requires less care and watering than the annual garden. Also the nice thing is that your perennials will flower and bloom year after year with very little care.
