Fantastic House and Host by Gloria 11/05/2017
We had a fantastic weekend at Summerset House. What a beautiful property. It offered every amenity necessary in order to make this a special weekend to share with special friends. The place was so clean and so well-stocked with everything we needed and more. Thank you for helping us arrange it. Thank you Mark!

wonderful family gathering for an extended weekend by Cindy 09/26/2017
Review #19675521 ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Six of us gathered from 3 Provinces to celebrate an 85th birthday. Everything in the home was beautifully put together and our whole family loved every minute of our stay. The home feels like home and the location is peaceful, and just a couple of minutes walk from beautiful Lake Ontario.
We swam in the Lake, soaked in the hot-tub, hung out on the beautiful porch among the flowers and later by candlelight. We cancelled one of supper reservation because we wanted to savour the opportunity to use the well appointed kitchen and eat in the beautiful backyard which backs onto a gorgeous mature forest.
Marc and his helpers met our every request including replacing a kettle that didn't work which was very much appreciated by the tea lovers in our group. We all agreed that we would love to come back on an annual basis.
Thank you for a very enjoyable stay in NOTL.

Decor and cleanliness are hands down the best I've ever experienced by Jennifer 09/18/2017
Second time staying in one of Mark's properties. Decor and cleanliness are hands down the best I've ever experienced. Great communication and easy check in. Would always try to book his places first in Niagara. May seem a bit pricey at first glance but worth it, as house is so well stocked you feel like you are instantly at home. Enjoyed it all. Thanks! Jennifer
Thanks so much, Mark!! by Kelly 09/04/2017
“Such a beautiful home by the water, so spacious and very clean. The pictures really don't do it justice! Hot tub was delightful after a long day of wine touring. Huge kitchen for gathering and eating! Would come back again for sure!”
“Mark, thank you so much for a fabulous stay at Summerset house. I so enjoyed meeting you! by Chritina 07/31/2017
“Everything about the Summerset home exceeded our expectations. For the first time in my travels, the home looked even BETTER than its photos online. This says quite a bit since the photos were already beautiful. The grounds are so lush and perfectly kept. You have your choice of a spacious, beautiful front porch or oasis of a backyard for lounging. There are plenty of cozy sitting areas to tuck away with a good book. We reserved the house for a 3 day trip to celebrate our year of turning 40. There were six of us and it was more than spacious. The house was spotless and you immediately feel comfortable. If you can manage it, be sure to steal yourself the master bedroom in the far left corner. The bed was heavenly! The house is perfectly nestled in a quiet and friendly neighbourhood. With the lake just a 2 minute walk away, we were able to enjoy the breathtaking sunset each night. You can easily walk to Queen Street in 25-30 minutes. It's a beautiful, scenic walk with views of the lake. If you choose to drive there is a a parking area by The Olde Angel Inn. You can park there for up to 8 hours and go exploring. We thought the location would require more driving and planning but it really was perfect and didn't feel inconvenienced by it at all. Actually, I will now prefer to stay there over anywhere on or closer to Queen Street. Our host Mark was attentive from the moment I contacted him to ask questions and ultimately book the home. His response time and recommendations made everything go smoothly. I so enjoyed meeting him upon check in - what a great guy! This will the the first of many future visits for me!”

Review #17802788 “ Summerset House Located In Historic Old Town Niagara-On-The-Lake”

★ ★ ★ ★ ★
From the time we arrived to the moment we left, this house was perfectly suited for our annual girls weekend away. We hosted 6 woman staying the night and 9 during the days. Each year we select a different location and property to visit - this house was one of the best we have ever stayed in! Everyone loved the hot tub, great sitting area outside with complete privacy from neighbors. The kitchen was spacious and allowed everyone to be preparing food/drink at the same time without rubbing elbows. The bedrooms were comfortable and clean and the washrooms were up to date, recently renovated.
We were a 4 minute walk to the water to watch the sun set each night and a great location for our morning coffee walk. We enjoyed walking into the town for dinner (about 15 minutes to walk into town). The surrounding homes are beautiful and very well kept.
During the day we went shopping, took a wine tour, people watched and relaxed in the hot tub.
We will return to this location again! Thanks Mark for a fantastic introduction to the property and for being an absolute treat to work with.

The house was beautiful by Lara 06/13/2017
“The house was beautiful and had everything we needed for a family getaway. Very close to wineries, restaurants/shops and the lake while also having a remoteness to it. Mark was always quick to respond to any questions we had and made sure we had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. ”

Absolutely PERFECT! by Patricia 04/08/2017
We stayed here for a week in the summer 2016. This house is absolutely stunning and it is just feet away from the Lake, allowing you some incredible sunset views. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need and has a hot tub in the back yard for relaxing evenings with a glass of wine. The house is located just minutes away from the beautiful down town Niagara on the Lake. The owners were just as incredible as the house itself, warm, attentive and go above and beyond to make the stay memorable. We are already planning our next trip to Niagara on the Lake and WILL be staying here!Response

Perfect place! by Darlene 09/01/2016
The place was perfect for us! We did have a dog, and there were doors that made it possible to keep her in the foyer/kitchen area very comfortably.
Fantastic location, comfortable and cozy house with nice kitchen, good areas to lounge and chat. by Tim B 08/25/2016
We had a great time exploring Niagara on the Lake and using the Summerset House as a base. The house is in a great location just down the road from the lake and a beautiful sunset view, as well as just blocks from Zoom bike rentals. Because we had bikes, we only walked to old town once. It was a nice, 20 minute walk. The house itself is fantastic. Numerous locations to sit quietly and read or to gather in groups and chat. We loved it and won't think twice about renting it should we return.
Beautiful House and Close to Everything by NAV 07/28/2016
This was a beautiful house that made our weekend getaway to NOTL that much better. It was very clean and had just about anything you would need (towels, dishes and is a few minute walk to the lake and about 5 minutes to the main strip of restaurants and shops. We were given a warm welcome with a quick tour of the home to ensure we had everything we needed during our stay.
