"We stayed here for an extended weekend at the end of October and had been to NOTL many times before. We loved the location of the cottage-an easy walk to Queen, the park and an easy drive to any of the wineries and breweries. The house itself was immaculate and the style was lovely. It was just 2 of us, but we brought our dog who enjoyed squirrel watching from the front window and she loved the fenced in backyard. Julie was easy to connect with before and while we were there, and when we booked she offered recommendations and talked about the town in a way you could tell how much she enjoys it. NOTL is one of my favorite places and we certainly would love to stay here again.
"We stayed during wine & herb weekend....and it was GREAT! Super close to town...and the coffee shop!! My favorite part!! Working fire place!! And wonderful backyard to sit during the day or night!! The kitchen is nicely redone & as all the stuff you need!! Beds are comfy!! 2 bathrooms. 1 in the master and a second one on the 1st floor (second bedrooms are upstairs). It was perfect for 2 couples!!! We will be back!! Cozy, close and super cute!!! And bonus - we arrived at night & they had motion sensor lights! So nice for a new arrival!! Thanks...nice touch!"
"The Cottage is absolutely gorgeous with all the comforts of home and more. It was immaculately clean and very well organised. Lots of extra touches (toiletries bathrobes and slippers ) very welcoming. The outside area was beautiful with a decking area and lovely lawned area with an abundance of flowers and plants a fabulous setting and very private. The only negative we have (and its a small one) is that the second bathroom is on the lower floor from the bedrooms. Was not a problem for us. The location Niagara on the Lake is fantastic is a beautiful place to visit and the cottage is central to everything . We hardly used the car walked everywhere so you dont miss any of the beauty of the place. Plenty of shops bars and restaurants all within walking distance. Will definitely staying again on our next visit. The owner is very easy to deal with answered our messages promptly and answered all our questions . ( We were travelling from the Uk so this was important to us ) A very pleasant stay look forward to the next time."

"The house is excellent. Great location, with many restaurants and good places to go near by. Upon arrival the house was immaculate and very well organized with a bunch of nice touches. Easy check in and everything we needed was there. Fantastic experience all around! Niagara-on the-Lake is a ridiculously beautiful location, and the house, quite honestly, had the nicest curb appeal on the street. What more could you ask for?"
"We loved it! The house was just like we hoped and expected. Very clean and well organized. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes, pots/pans, cleaners,... We did not need a car at all. We walked to town 4-5 x during the weekend stay. We loved the fenced-in yard for the dogs. The only negative thing was the lack of FREE cable channels. Not enough variety. we plan to come back soon."
"Our 3rd time here at Abel Thomas House in Niagara on the Lake!! We luv it there-the location is excellent convenient to Town, shopping, trails and restaurants! Home away from home-quiet retreat in backyard with Gazebo where we enjoyed our morning coffee and afternoon wine n cheese! It's pet friendly-our dogs loved the backyard-completely fenced in. Very comfortable. cozy and accommodates several guests if you wish to invite friends. The owners very nice. responds quickly and very personable. We love being a repeat renter here-we will be back for another holiday for sure!! Thanks!!!"

"House is very pleasant with a charming back yard. Location is fantastic with it only being a 3 minute walk to the main town center. Would highly recommend."
Ed from Kalamazoo
"Abel Thomas is a place where you can get away from the day to day pace of everyday life, and just enjoy a region of Canada that takes you to a place of comfort and relaxation. My family and friends enjoyed 3 days at Abel House, and felt like we were at home WITHOUT all of the stuff that goes on. Location, Location, Location, as they say, and Abel Thomas house has it all, walk to everything, do what you feel.....we barbecued in the back yard that is extremely private, walked to rent our bikes for a daily ride, walked to the restaurants that are numerous and spectacular, walked to the local theatre and saw a play in the evening, and just enjoyed a time to hang out at the house and visit with friends, family, and enjoy a time together. The house is cute, quaint, private, and as mentioned very close to all the amenities that Niagara on the Lake provides. I would recommend this property for those looking to relax and get away from it all........even if just for a moment in time, you will not forget or regret your time at Abel Thomas House....."
"Abel Thomas House is an adorable, spotless little cottage we stayed at Jan. 24-26th 2014. Our mini break here was exactly what we were looking for, and staying at abel Thomas really made our weekend outstanding! 2 minute walk to everything, couldn't have asked for a better stay in Niagara on the Lake, and this charming house was everything we could have asked for and more. Definitely recommended, we will absolutely be returning!
A definite highlight of the weekend was the snowshoe wine tour we went on at thirty bench winery! Located a short drive away, the tour consists of a snowshoe instruction, a beautiful snowshoe tour of the vineyard which included 5 tastings of their delicious wine! To top it all off, upon return to the lodge, they serve homemade soup by the campfire, with of course more wine! More than well worth the 30 dollars per person! We hope to absolutely do this again! All in all the best weekend we could have hoped for!"

"We were all very pleased with this quant cottage for the 6 of us! It was very clean and inviting. Close enough to downtown NOTL to walk even during the cold month of Jan. Would definitely book again for another holiday!"

"Had a wonderful time at Abel Thomas House. Just the two of us, our two small dogs and we invited another couple for 2 of the nights. We had an amazing time visiting the nearby restaurants, spas, wineries and shops. Our dogs loved the fully fenced backyard and the parks close by. We had a quiet cozy New Years there by the fireplace watching movies. There was lots of room for all of us and we enjoyed having a private ensuite bath so the guests could also have their own. We are all planning to head back this Summer!! Although in the past I have stayed at the Local BnBs and enjoyed them too, there is nothing like having a home away from home while vacationing! Well worth the money!"
Mrs. L from Ajax, ON
"The best thing about this property is the location - a very short walk to all the theatres and restaurants. The house is clean, comfortable, nicely decorated and has a very well equipped kitchen. We were 3 generations and everyone enjoyed the holiday immensely."
"Lovely cottage within walking distance to the town of Niagara on the lake. Very clean and comfortable. Wonderful finished basement for the Kids - all the amenities you would need - fresh towels and linens. Quite and beautiful neighborhood - world class theatre around the corner. Great getaway - highly recommended!"
Mari A, from Medford NJ , USA
"We had a lovely weekend at the Abel Thomas Cottage. A perfect getaway from the city for our family incl baby & dog. Our hosts were friendly, accommodating, and helpful. Left a pack & play and booster seat for baby which was nice touch. Our highlights included the wood fireplace, the comfy atmosphere, the waffle-maker, the proximity to downtown, and the multiple gathering spots (living room, dining area, basement). Would have liked to stay for longer. Would highly recommend to a family or small group of friends for a low-key relaxing weekend (or longer!!)"
