Two Beautiful, Historic Vacation Homes with Private Pools in Old Town Niagara-on-the-Lake
Niagara on the Lake Vacation Rental Homes
We both grew up in the area as children and we returned many years later to get married in NOTL in 1991. We have always loved Niagara on the Lake and when we were moved from Chicago to Sweden in 2000 to continue my career with IKEA, we searched for a home in the town that we could return to every summer and Christmas with our young daughter, Sophia. We fell in love instantly with Simcoe Pines, our red house! When we would fly back home to Sweden after visiting with family, and couldn’t enjoy Simcoe Pines ourselves, we offered it up for rent on the internet and before long we were fully booked. We came to realize there was a great demand from families for well-appointed vacation rental homes with private swimming pools in Old Town which lead us to purchase Aylesbury Manor in 2004. We returned home to Canada in 2005 and purchased our 3rd home, Amberlea House, and finally Avalon in 2006. We stopped there as Angelo was running the business on his own and we realized that if we want to be hands-on and able to manage the homes personally, four was the maximum number.
When I retired from IKEA after 23 years in 2014 I began to work with Angelo full time on the business. I just love it! Our four homes are a labor of love and each one has it’s own personality and character. We enjoy decorating and home furnishings, Food & Wine, music, and photography. Our vacation home business provides a great venue for our personal interests! We appreciate the town so much that we have just recently moved down here ourselves. Of all the cities and countries we have lived in, nothing compares to the beauty of Niagara on the Lake. We are excited to be celebrating our 17th year in business!
