About this listing
A fully accessible Wine Country house in the middle of one of Niagara's most scenic vineyards. Lake views from porch and access to the Bruce Trail immediately behind the home. Convenient for exploring wine country, biking and culinary experiences. Niagara Falls and St Catharines and Jordan brief car ride away.
This is a lovely old farmhouse styled home that has been entirely updated to a very high standard. We are accessible for mobility impaired guests with an elevator between floors (arranged if required), ramp to enter the house and roll in shower. All of these features have been architect designed so are tastefully integrated.
Lovely big country kitchen with all necessities on hand. Fantastic view over the vineyards and Lake Ontario to the Toronto skyline to enjoy while you breakfast at the kitchen table. A full dining room, living room and television room complete the downstairs rooms.
Old school porches to the north and east and a spacious deck on the south side offer lots of outdoor relaxation space. The lot itself has a lawn and small orchard all surrounded by vineyards. Across our back fence is the World Biosphere Reserve Niagara Escarpment cliff face and the Cave Spring Conservation Area.
Four private bedrooms are upstairs for the use of up to 8 guests. There is a den that has a premium queen sized pullout to comfortably accommodate another couple., if needed subject to a small incremental charge. The reward for having the pullout as your room is a private balcony that enhances the library! The Master Bedroom has a private bathroom and the others share a spacious bathroom. There is a large powder room downstairs too.
There are hardwood floors throughout and furnishings are of high quality: no big box items!
Guests have a private garden and seating on the deck and porches. They are welcome to walk throughout the estate including around our ponds where fishing is permitted. There is a fully private apartment in the basement where one of the the owners lives, with its own separate entrance and patio area. We are near at hand, but your privacy is guaranteed.
Interaction with guests
We are on site in a fully private part of the house and are very willing to answer questions about the region and help with any challenges. We do not use any part of your indoor space, but you may run into us in the garden. We have grown up in these vineyards and would be proud to show them to our guests. We try to check in once a day and guests are provided with cell and land line contact to ask us any questions.
We have two standard poodles that might visit outdoors, but do not come into the Estate House---if you want to walk them, just ask!
Other things to note
It is important to note that Cave Spring Vineyards fully surround the Estate House and they are a working environment. Some noise can be expected from normal farming practice. We will communicate specific seasonal issues with you when we begin the booking process.
IMPORTANT! HST, our provincial tax, of 13% will be collected upon check in. Airbnb cannot collect it, but it is mandatory.
Guests are STRICTLY LIMITED to those who are registered. We are on site and expect to be able to ensure quiet after eleven o'clock. We are happy to have guests treat the house as their own and welcome barbecues and kitchen feasts with registered friends; any additional guests require pre-approval.
We are happy to discuss accommodating your pets, but will use our discretion based on the information provided.
Pricing is based on up to 8 guests using the four queen bed bedrooms; additional guests (up to two more) may rent at $50 per person per night and use the pullout. If the pullout is required for less than 8 guests, a $50 per night charge is charged. No other sleeping arrangements are acceptable, ie no sleeping on couches or floors. Local tax of 13% is added at the time of arrival to all reservations: this is a mandatory tax throughout Ontario.
Smoking is not allowed in the house, but the deck and porches provide ample protected areas to smoke.

We live in Paradise! We are winegrowers and winemakers in the Niagara Peninsula and we are eager to share this extraordinary place with others. We have been lucky to have travelled quite a lot so we can anticipate what our guests might reasonably expect. We are right on site and, though your privacy will be respected, we are very happy to meet you and invite you on our daily walks with our three vineyard dogs.
