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. The Twiglet, is totally separate and private, and on the other end of the acreage, yet still part of the sanctuary. The donkeys, and piggies and goats will greet you and bring a smile. Modern, fresh and fun, a romantic bedroom, corner glass from floor to ceiling built over looking Dragonfly pond and its own door to a the third private deck and patio. Any and all seasons have their own beauty and attraction, and critters are out about all year. Weather a romantic getaway from the madness and the city, or a long stay visiting from overseas, the Twiglet or the Hoblet awaits you with quaint outdoor 'rooms' and space, private fire pit, and pizza oven (propane). Maybe you are considering a tiny house, come and stay a weekend and have a test run! Mush would be happy to discuss all aspects of a tiny house/cottage, all the rage now! 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.
