The Cottages were in new condition, views of Toronto were awesome , Kathryn and Joe the owners could not have been more helpful and friendly, even my older kids enjoyed it.

“A Very Special Place...One of a Kind”

We stayed in the adorable Vineyard Cottage with our two boys. This cottage is perfect for a family with young children....plenty of space to run and play. Our hosts Kathryn and "Farmer Joe" were truly the sweetest and kindest people we have met in a very long time. Their love and pride for Nokara Farms and their guests was evident from the moment we arrived. Our cottage was very clean, and we immediately felt at home. We found homemade baked goods (I highly suggest the strawberry rhubard muffins and pies.) and a cottage stocked with all amenities. The refrigerator was filled with creamers, butter, and fresh eggs from the chickens. The bathroom was stocked with toiletries. There was even a first aid kit which comes in handy with two young boys:) There was also a washer and dryer. We purchased all of our fresh veggies from the farm, and we grilled dinner on our deck every night. We ate dinner on the picnic table as we watched the most amazing sunsets over Lake Ontario. We sat by our evening fire, roasted s'mores, and relaxed to the sound and blowing of the lake breeze. The Toronto skyline can be seen across the lake too. We walked down to the lake, swam and played by the water's edge. Kathryn and Joe shared their golf cart with us, and we drove with our boys around the farm looking at all of the different crops that were growing. We also loved looking at the chickens:) The boys learned about thinning peach trees, and they enjoyed playing in the peach orchard. This is a great place to stay if you are interested in visiting Toronto and Niagara Falls. You can enjoy the hustle bustle of the day, but then, you can come back to a quiet relaxing evening on the lake. Words truly cannot express how wonderful our stay was at Nokara Farms. We feel truly blessed to have met Kathryn and Joe and to have shared their home with them. Everything about this place is unique, and we've never been to a place quite like it.

“"Nokara Farm Cottages on the Lake 5 Star"”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Great location just outside of town, waterfront cottages on a working farm. Reservations a must, Joe & Kathryn great hosts, firepits, full kitchen, plenty of space for peace and quiet, highly recommend. Special note for well behaved small dogs the Pinot Noir Cottage is available by special request only. Will be returning soon.
