Niagara on the Lake Rental Reviews

Marrakech Mansion and Casablanca Cottage Guest reviews:

I encourage all of my guests to write a review after they stay. The reviews that they write will give you an unbiased opinion of my two properties.

2018 Comedy Festival


"8 of us stayed at the Marrakech Mansion On Jan. 26 & 27/2018.  I cannot tell how many times people thanked me for finding a place that would hold and entertain all of us. My hubby and me have been coming to Niagara for 32 years and have stayed at hotels, bed and breakfasts etc. We then decide to branch it out and invite more friends but again that posed accommodation issues where we were scattered everywhere. Finally in 2017 I found the Marrakech Mansion (don’t know where you’ve been hiding). It is a true gem, enough parking for all of us, lovely kitchen so we could cook our meals and a big dining room table. Also big living room and 4 bedrooms with a total of 3 bathrooms. The house was remarkably clean. I am sure the grounds would be lovely in the summer to be able to sit on the decks and patio and enjoy a bbq. We were able to walk to the main drag which was lovely as normally you have to drive or cab it. It was an overall fabulous weekend and we are looking forward to doing it again next year. "

Best place to stay in Niagara on the Lake


"We have been visiting either the Casablanca Cottage or the  Marrakech  Mansion now for about ten years.  Our most recent visit, January 2018, was at the Marrakech Mansion.  To sum it up, it was a totally awesome experience, as always.  It was super clean, everything was well stocked, beautifully decorated and a most relaxing place to be.  The kitchen has more cooking accessories, dishes and cookware than I have at home.  I think that Don has thought of everything that you could possibly need.  Don has a cottage manual that provides information on anything you could think of to ask, as well as much history on the house.  The four bedrooms are spacious and comfortable.  The 2 1/2 bathrooms are conveniently located and are very nicely done.  There is ample off street parking, which is very nice.  The yard is beautiful, I'm sure it's a great place to be in the summer.  Short walk into town and easy drive to go anywhere in Niagara on the Lake or up to the Bench.  Don is always available to answer any questions you may have.  We definitely are hoping to go back again next January!  You really can't go wrong at either one of Don's properties!!

Plenty of Space


"We were only two in a house that accommodates six to eight nicely but no complaints here; it was perfectly cozy. In fact, it was marvelous. "

A great Christmas


"We stayed in Casablanca Cottage for 4 nights (2 families: 4 adults + 4 kids) The rooms are very well organized. Kitchen/dining/Bathrooms (3 of them) are all well functioning and very clean. Morocco styled furniture/decorations set the tone of the residence. The "secret" cozy reading room gives me a very quality meditation time, peaceful! Regular living room/family room are roomy and warm as well! Location is perfect if you like downtown feeling of a small town. Grocery/window shopping/Coffee/Dinning restaurants/Winery outlet are all nearby in walking distance. Although it's downtown area, but it's a small town, so it's quiet and I can't hear too many road noises if there are any at all... "

Cozy.  Relaxed.  Peaceful.


"This perfectly describes what the Marrakech Mansion and Casablanca cottage have offered to my girlfriends and my family.  Whether it is a girl’s getaway or a family reunion, I keep coming back to Don’s homes every year.  It is the perfect setting in an old British town full or superb restaurants, unique shops and luxurious spas.  So close to the main street – Queen St. – you can’t ask for more.  Sitting by the fire with a glass of Niagara wine and great conversations, the homes have gorgeous décor, fully stocked kitchens and comfortable beds. It really is a wonderful experience like a home away from home.  For me, staying at the Marrakech and the Casablanca is an escape from reality.  Don is right!  He told me, “Once you stay at the Marrakech or the Casablanca, you won’t go anywhere else.”  And that is why I keep coming back.  My friends who just came back from the weekend at the Casablanca said, “We need to come back and bring our husbands.”  We are already planning it.

Great Location and Spacious Clean Rooms


"We stayed at the Marrakech mansion while attending a family wedding in Niagara on the Lake. The home was spacious, clean, quaint and full of character. It had everything we needed and there were clear instructions for everything we needed to know. The yard was beautiful and we wish we could have stayed longer. The location was within walking distance of both the lake and also the shops and restaurants. We will definitely recommend this to anyone looking to visit the area!"

A Great Niagara Getaway


"We have stayed at both Casablanca Cottage and Marrakech Mansion, and there's a reason we keep coming back year after year! The homes are beautiful, extremely unique, and exceptionally well cared for. The owner, Don, is always a pleasure to deal with, and does everything he can to make sure your stay is enjoyable. I highly recommend either of these properties if you're looking for a great Niagara getaway!"

Best Place to Stay in Niagara on the Lake


"Marrakech Mansion is a handsome, comfortable and magnificently located place to stay in the charming town of NOTL. The landlord keeps the home and grounds in top shape. My husband and I have rented MM for three weeks each fall for the past several years and plan on continuing to do so. It is walkable to all the theaters (we try and see most of the Shaw Festival plays), restaurants, shops and the water with a picture perfect view of Fort Niagara. There must be close to one hundred wineries within a twenty mile radius and gorgeous vineyards and peach orchards decorate the landscape all around. But back to Marrakech Mansion. We did our research before first booking MM and know of no other place so clean, comfortable and conducive to hosting family and friends. It is easily a five star accommodation."

Love The Porch


"We have been staying at the Casablanca Cottage for approximately 10 years.  We stay at the cottage along with two other couples.  We love that it has everything we need, nice kitchen and dining area, living room and den and three bedrooms.  The best part is the porch, we all love sitting on the porch in the evening with a glass of wine from one of the great wineries in the area.  The cottage is only one block off the main street so we can park our cars and walk to the theatre and restaurants."

It's Not Texas


"Our family has come from Texas for many years to stay at either the Casablanca Cottage  or Marrakech Mansion  properties operated by Don George of Cottage Inns of Niagara. Our experience over more than 10 rentals has been uniformly good. Both properties are well maintained and well appointed with everything needed to function as if you were at home. Both are well located and convenient to shops and restaurants in Niagara on the Lake. Our favourite aspect of each property is the gardens which are furnished with outdoor furniture which encourages outside activity and dining. Especially pleasant is the front porch of the Casablanca Cottage. We recommend these properties to all of our friends and in fact we are bringing two housefuls of them to visit in July 2018."
