Filled with Charm and Comfort

We take great pride in providing a warm and welcoming ‘home-away-from-home’ for you. Located in the heart of town on a quiet, tree-lined street, Abigail House is spotlessly clean and endlessly comfortable. The cottage has air conditioning, large principle rooms with plenty of seating, a fully-equipped kitchen, polished hardwood floors, 4 generous bedrooms, 2 full baths with showers and a convertible sofa bed that accommodates 2 additional guests.


We pay particular attention to our beds and bedding to maximize your comfort. All of our beds are piled high with pillows and come with new, top-quality mattresses and freshly ironed, high thread-count cotton sheets.


The main floor bedroom is bright and airy, with a fully renovated 4-piece bathroom. Perfect for a romantic escape, it also offers accessible convenience for those who find stairs a challenge. The upper floor has another full bathroom with a luxurious claw foot tub, as well as 2 queen beds and 2 extra-long twin beds that can be converted to a King bed.  


We’ve stocked the cottage to make your stay pleasant and relaxing. The kitchen comes with many cooking essentials, including a quaint farmer’s pantry, a chopping block table and a refrigerator large enough to hold groceries for a crowd.

Just imagine how much fun you’ll have grilling up a delicious meal on the BBQ, gathering round the harvest table for great food and conversation, then kicking back on the cozy, 3-season porch to watch a spectacular sunset! We also provide a flat screen TV, DVD player, Wi-Fi and free North American long distance for all your entertainment needs – plus plenty of quiet nooks to curl up with a good book.

We’re Close To Everything!

Abigail House is the ideal home base for exploring the beauty and unique attractions of the Niagara region. Shopping, fine dining, the Shaw Festival Theatre (and a grocery store!) are all just a 2 minute walk from the house. You’ll feel the world slow down as you leave traffic jams behind and stroll along our flower-filled street into the quaint and historic downtown. If you’re in the mood for even more relaxation, treat yourself to an afternoon of pampered bliss at one of Niagara-on-the-Lake’s many spas.    


When you’re feeling more ambitious, plan a tour Niagara’s world-famous wineries and colourful farmers markets, where delicious local food, wine and entertainment are always on offer. Niagara Falls is also a short drive away, with its breathtaking views, family adventures and exciting nightlife. Don’t forget to book a Whirlpool Jet Boat tour of the rapids – it’s a thrilling experience!


Golf lovers can enjoy a round on North America’s oldest golf course, right on the banks of Lake Ontario. And history buffs will love the fact that Abigail House is a historically significant century-old schoolhouse. From here you can explore Fort George and the military museum or take a nostalgic carriage ride into picturesque old town.

We purchased Abigail House over fifteen years ago as a vacation home for our family. We were captivated by the convenient location and old-world charm of this lovely cottage and have carefully updated it to preserve that cozy, welcoming feel.


As our children grew up, we spent many wonderful summers relaxing in the beautiful gardens, hosting family gatherings and celebrations and delighting in all that Niagara has to offer. Now, we feel the time has come to open our vacation home to guests, so that other families and visitors can enjoy the same wonderful experiences and happy memories that our family has cherished over the years. 


Our Management Team

We do not live in the Niagara area, so we have carefully selected a top-notch management team to handle your every need. They will be there to welcome you and show you around the house when you arrive. Our guests have found them to be very helpful and well-informed about local attractions and events. They are locally-based so they will quickly respond to any issues that may arise during your stay. 

Eric and Janet Trogdon live in the historic old town, Niagara-on-the-Lake. Janet's family has ties to the region pre date world war two when her Father, Henry Wissenz, brought fruit from their farm to be canned at what is now known as the Pillar and Post Inn, a five star hotel with a world class spa.

Eric and Janet enjoy the parks and outdoor activities that the region have to offer, the hiking and biking trails offer endless exploring. A new favourite is kayaking up the Niagara River, it is a wonderous water adventure.

Eric and Janet love to welcome guests and are amazed at the variety of activities they come to experience. From world class live theatre, to golf, to wining and dining, to jet boat rides up the category six rapids on the Niagara River. It not just about Niagara Falls!
