Welcome to The Merlot Cottage, a renovated & modernized cottage on Four Mile Creek in Virgil. The large back porch really feels like you are up north at a cabin! The home is within walking distance to a bakery, coffee shop, breakfast spot, antique store, a brewery& more! A 5-10 min drive & you are in the heart of the old town of NOTL. Enjoy being surrounded by wineries, vineyards& orchards. The home is a great gathering spot to unwind after a great day visiting Niagara. Pets & children welcome!

The space
The cottage has ample parking, a wooded ravine backdrop, and has been completely renovated to have all of the expected amenities. Approximately 1100sqft of usable space. Enjoy the serene large deck and BBQ off the back, watch the cars from the front patio and listen to the birds and the creek out back. The space is within walking distance to some great food, a bakery, brewery, and more!
*Please note in the summer the road can be quite busy for a small town!
*Also please be sure to view the photos of the stairs going upstairs, they are short steps making them feel steep and require some maneuvering at the top level

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire home. The top floor has 2 bedrooms and one bathroom. The main floor has one bedroom and one bathroom, a kitchen, living room, and dining room. The basement is finished. The front has a porch and the back has a deck and there is parking for multiple cars.

Other things to note
Because of the ravine and wooded area there are lots of bugs! Be prepared. Bug spray and fly swatters are provided. If you keep the door closed mostly at night less will make their way inside!
Many things in NOTL close by 6pm so be sure to check the hours of places you may want or need to come back to.
The stairs are very steep and open at the top- please take extra caution with children and pets! (and wine)..
The road can be very busy in the summer months (well, busy for a small town). They call it the Four Corners. You may even be stuck in a line up due to the traffic light to get into the driveway :(
Please be aware that in the busy summer and fall months we cannot accommodate early check in or late check out, we are sorry!

The cottage is located in a small part of NOTL called Virgil. It is a quaint little town, much busier in the summer months than winter months. Most necessities are available close by (grocery, hardware store, post office, pharmacy) with many of the within walking distance, but most places close relatively early so plan accordingly! The house is on a busier road but it still has a very cottage-y serene feel to it. We do apologize for the traffic, for a small town this is the busy "Four Corners."
