Editor's Analysis
Updated on Feb 8, 2013
This property was built in 1871 and is currently owned by Canadian Soprano Maria Rekrut. Featuring a private art collection, antiques and only two rooms, this property is well-suited to guests who prefer more unique and intimate accommodations. 

This cottage is non-smoking and both rooms are furnished with bathrobes, a hair dryer, a TV, a fireplace, air conditioning and air purification, a patio, a Victorian garden and free Wi-Fi. One room has an en suite bathroom and a queen bed, while the other bedroom has a private bathroom (not in the room) and a king bed.

Free parking is available on site and pets are not permitted. There is a minimum requirement of a two-night stay.

A free breakfast is served daily. The time of the breakfast service may be arranged with the host.

This B&B is located within an 11-minute walk of Picton Street, which features art galleries, museums, the Shaw Festival Theatre and restaurants. The Niagara Golf Course (overlooking the Niagara River) is 12 minutes away on foot, while the Jackson-Triggs Niagara Estate Winery is a 3-minute drive away. Access to the QEW is 15 minutes away by car, while attractions at Niagara Falls are about a 30-minute drive away. (All walking and driving time estimates: Google Maps)

Verified by a front desk agent on February 7, 2013: The free breakfast is served daily and the time of service may be arranged with host directly.
The Good
There were only two reviews available at the time this editorial was written and these two guests seemed to be disappointed by their experience (see below for more details).
The Bad
Both of the guests who reviewed this property (there were only two reviews available at the time this analysis was conducted) were disappointed by their stay at this cottage.

The guests seemed most let down by the condition of the furnishings. One reviewer said that the furniture seemed "more like garage sale items than antiques", while the other guest described broken and saggy furniture.

Both guests thought that the property in general looked rundown and that the garden appeared to have been untended for quite some time. One of the guests suggested that the cottage was in need of a good cleaning. ranked this hotel #5 out of 5 speciality lodging in Niagara-on-the-Lake, with an average score of 1 out of 5, from 2 reviews.

The author called the hotel on February 7, 2013 to verify some information.
