Avalon - look no further if you want brilliant place to stay with your family. There were 8 of us visiting the beautiful NOTL from the UK , mixed ages from seniors to children. Avalon was ideal for us , it is a beautiful house with all the amenities you will need , the pool and garden area just perfect for relaxing or having a family BBQ. The interior does not disappoint very spacious and very nicely decorated and furnished, good quality comfy beds . The location cannot be bettered, it is ideally located just an easy stroll to all that NOTL has to offer. I have no hesitation in recommending Avalon to anyone looking for a vacation home in NOTL.

This 4 bedroom home was the perfect place for the 8 of us to experience wineries, shopping, dining, sunsets, and long lasting friendships in Niagra on the Lake! We fell in love with this beautiful home the moment we stepped inside. The 4 bedrooms are perfect and the kitchen is massive! And talk about location! We were 1 block from downtown shopping, coffee, and bars! Kerri was a joy to work with and even had some coupons for wine tasting there when we arrived. I will be back to this quaint little town and will stay at Avalon when I am lucky enough to return!

Our gang of 6 women have been friends since 1975. We met our first year of University. Niagara on the Lake is a perfect spot for our reunion. Avalon House is charming. Everything appears as it does in the pictures. We were very comfortable and there was lots of space. The kitchen was very well equipped. If you want to be in the heart of Old Niagara on the Lake and stay in this beautifully restored old home you won't be sorry. Ps. Our only regret...the pool was off season.

Thank you for your kind words. We were pleased to hear you enjoyed our gourmet kitchen at Avalon. It’s a fun kitchen to cook in while having plenty of space for everyone to join in and help or just enjoy a glass of wine! We look forward to hearing from you again! All the best, Kerri & Angelo

The Avalon is a perfectly located rental home. It’s a 3-minute walk to Queen St., the heart of Niagara-on-the-Lake, but is on a quiet street delivering the opportunity to enjoy some local wine at the end of a hectic day. It embodies local character both inside and out while delivering all the essentials and then some. There are 4 spacious bedrooms (2 with on-suite bathrooms), exposed beams, pool, fireplace, BBQ, and a well equipped kitchen with state of the art appliances including a microwave and dishwasher. The main rooms are spacious with plenty of seating as well as inside and outside dining areas. Parking accommodates 3 cars for larger groups. The cleanliness and quality of linens, towels and other amenities was greatly appreciated. The owners, Kerri and Angelo were very caring, even checking via email to inquire if we had any questions or there was anything we needed. As a group of 6, we would highly recommend the Avalon for its walkability to shopping and restaurants, the short drive to the many wineries and its overall ambience.

We have had ten wonderful summer vacations with our family in NOTL. All our bookings have been with Angelo and Kerri and we can't say enough about their attentiveness. For the past nine summer vacations we have stayed at the Avalon. This house is a gem. It is a beautiful period home that has been updated to meet everyone's needs. Think about it, and it's there. The location is perfect. We walk everywhere... for groceries, to the main street, the park, etc. Of course, you don't even have to leave since there is such a lovely pool in the backyard. We can't say enough about the beautiful homes that Angelo and Kerri share with their guest,

This historic home is everything that is pictured and more. It is in a terrific location just a block away from all of the shops and restaurants on Queen St. The home is spacious and very nicely appointed. It is very clean and has everything that you could need during your stay. The pool is an added bonus and a huge hit with our kids. The owners of the home provided all of the information for the stay up front and were available if needed. We definitely recommend Avalon!

We loved our stay in this beautiful home. It is situated in a perfect location (close to everything) and yet still peaceful and quiet. We shared our stay with several good friends and had many wonderful moments over dinner (and wine!) and by the lovely pool. A perfect place to make many special memories. We enjoyed every aspect of this beautifully kept home, and we look forward to many more visits. The owners are super, always attentive and happy to help. We have stayed at their other properties in the past (also amazing) and we can't wait to come back next year!

Wonderful location and wonderful home. This is our second time staying with our family for a week long summer vacation. The location of the Avalon couldn't be any better and the home is well equipped and very clean. Much appreciated! It really felt like our home away from home during our stay to Niagara on the Lake. The pool was always a nice thing to look forward to at the end of a hot day. The home owners were a pleasure to deal with and checked in with us to make sure everything was in order. Thank you for the lovely time spent there! Looking forward to next year!

Stayed for a week. Wonderfully quaint and clean accommodations making the stay economical (several meals on site) as well as enjoyable. Everything needed is here. Four bedrooms / three baths plus laundry and kitchen just blocks from town center. How can you go wrong.
