There is no shortage of places to stay while you visit the many wineries in the area or attend the Shaw festival. There are Hotels, Inns, Bed & Breakfast homes and Cottage Rentals.
What could be better than having your very own cottage for your holiday? You can grill on the Weber BBQ in the private garden or cook in the well-equipped kitchen. My two vacation homes are located one block from Queen Street in the heritage district. You can walk to the Shaw festival or any of the wine tasting outlets. Both houses are pet friendly so there is no reason to leave Fido at home.
Marrakech Mansion is a registered heritage home built in 1860; it sits on one of the largest properties in the old town with lawns and flowers beds plus parking for 5 cars.

We love Marrakech Mansion
“We had a fabulous time at the Marrakech Mansion. We felt so at home, the house had everything we needed, and it is so close to everything that we never needed our car. Would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to rent In Niagara-on-the-Lake. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful house with us. And every word true, we love it, I didn’t want to come home…lol”

You Cannot Pick A Better Place to stay in NOTL
“We love visiting NOTL and nothing is better than staying at one of Don George’s place. Our Girls Get-Away is usually spent at Marrakesh Mansion. This time we stayed at Casablanca. We came for a friends daughter’s wedding. What an adorable quaint cottage. Three couples, a young person and a baby. We have stayed a great variety of places in NOTL, usually B&B but have found a “haven” with Don George. Both of these homes are top notch. Don has converted these two homes to meet all the modern conveniences one would require, yet maintaining the integrity and beauty of the original home. The Casablanca Cottage is spacious and clean situated on a lovely, peaceful street. Yet, a short walk to downtown – Queen Street, with all the boutique shops, famous theatres and wonderful restaurants. A fabulous location. It has covered porch ideal to people watch. The gorgeous carriages go by the house. A wonderful space to watch the world go by, or enjoy the serenity of the backyard, complete with seating and a dining area and gas BBQ. The beds are comfortable and roomy. A fully equipped modern kitchen, even though you may not need to cook with all the great restaurants a short walk away. It has all the amenities that you will need. Many wine glasses to enjoy that bottle of wine you will bring home after visiting the many wineries. An ideal place to stay with friends or family. The house has air-conditioning, central heating and even a romantic gas fireplace for chilly days.
