Introducing the Twiglet part of Natures Energy Centre & Sanctuary, and the award wining Hoblet. A short 15 minute drive to the brink of the Horseshoe Falls and all the touristy stuff, but away from it all in the country and part of our small animal sanctuary. Meet the donkeys, mule, potbelly piggies and the infamous George and Monty (the goats), all rescued from one trauma and working with local SPCA. Your rental revenue helps us maintain these wonderful creatures that call Natures Energy Centre home now.
For over twelve years the Hoblet, winner of over 8 awards, has welcomed guests from all over the world. We are proud and grateful to the hundreds of guests that have enjoyed the energy here and been so gracious in their reviews.

A year later than planned we finally made it to Niagara! A perfect location close enough to get where you want but still away from it all. An idyllic small house in the woods with the most amazing neighbours who were Monty & George the...More

About the neighbourhood
perfect location to enjoy all the Niagara Peninsula has to over. 15 minute drive to the brink of the Horseshoe Falls, 35 minutes from historic Niagara-on-the-lake and 20 minutes from the Peace Bridge. Though you are only 15 minutes away from all the touristy things, a car is needed, we are in the country and there is no public transport available. The Twiglet is unique in that you are nestled in with nature and the animals, we have a small animal sanctuary, enjoy the close proximity of the animals, of which all have been rescued. There are 5 donkeys, 1 mule, 2 goats, 4 pot belly piggies and 3 dogs. Part of the experience is enjoying the natural setting, and being 'unplugged'. (Corporate clients, and guests please advise us if wifi/internet
Getting around
We are right in the heart of the Niagara Peninsula. It sounds like a commercial, sorry, but there is so much more than just the falls here. Great 'antiquing', some of the finest beaches in the province. The capital of Ontario just an hour and a half away (Toronto), and the international border.
As we are small animal sanctuary, we are located in the country so a car (whether your own or rented at the bus or train station, or airports (Bufffalo and Toronto) is a must. We would be happy to suggest outings and day trips that suit your personal interests.

How to get there
Airport: Buffalo Airport: 45.0 km
Railway: Niagara Falls, Canada, Queen Street : 18.0 km
We are a short and easy drive, approximately 40 min. from Buffalo airport. Best international crossing is the Peace Bridge. Take the Netherby exit or Lyons Creek and go to Crowland Rd to Lincoln or Morris Rd to Lincoln.
Toronto airport is about an hour and twenty minutes drive. The bus terminal and train station in Niagara Falls is about 25 min. You do need a car here, we are in the country and there is no public transportation.
The 'hoblet' has its own private and free parking area. You will be given a remote control for the gate at the road. There fore we do need to know your arrival time so we can have the gate open for your arrival and meet and greet. We look forward to having you.
