Or cozy up with all of the comforts of home, enjoying a glass of local wine on the back deck or in the Garden Room, while gazing out over the stunning Secret Garden.

My love of Niagara-on-the-Lake led me to purchase the Secret Garden Cottage! It is my happy place, and I am honoured to share it with you. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make your stay more enjoyable. Thank you!

I am retired clergy, a musician, and now an entrepreneur. The Secret Garden Cottage falls under my brand, B Well by Tara B. I am also a Consultant for Beautycounter, as making healthy life choices is very important for me. My husband David and I have been married for 34 years. We have a married daughter and son-in-law, a son, and a grand puppy that we adore! We love to spend time in Niagara-on-the-Lake, with all that it has to offer...especially the wine! I can feel the relaxation wash over me when the vineyards start to appear as we approach the region.

The Secret Garden Cottage is my first short-term rental home. I am excited for you to fall in love with it as much as I have!
