About Janet Trogdon

We are a husband and wife furniture retail and interior design team who moved to beautiful Niagara on the Lake two years ago and fell in love with the town. We love to restore properties and felt that Summerhill House, with it's enviable location, was the perfect place to enjoy a visit to our town and so decided to open it as a holiday cottage rental. We have tried to make it a comfortable 'home from home' and exactly the kind of place we would choose for our own family getaway.

Why Janet Trogdon chose Historic Old Town

We chose our location because there is so much for people to do in the area. We are very close to all the Shaw theatres, which offer excellent entertainment from April to October. We also love the fact that the horse-drawn carriages pass by our front door all year round. Niagara on the Lake is also famous for the quality of it's many wineries and we are well-positioned near to the companies offering tours and bicycle rentals. We feel it is a great area for everyone to have something to do during the whole lengh of their trip.

Guestbook comments from the owner


My girlfriends and I loved our stay at the Summerhill House! We were very happy with everything. All of us would rate all of your criteria with a 10: value, location, staff and property. The property was as described on the website and very easy to book.The house was very clean, we loved the location being right in the middle of town, parking space was perfect, anywhere we wanted to go was either walking distance or a 15 minute drive. I can't say enough how happy we were with this house. We spent a lot of time on the balcony off the front bedroom, loved it! Between 6 women we had two suggestions: would have liked more towels (had to do a load of towels) and the bathrooms were missing counter space or some sort of cabinet to accommodate our toiletries. Other than that it was Perfect!!

Good house in great location

  • 5 of 5

This historic home is in a great location. It is only steps from a coffee shop and an Irish pub, just around the corner from good restaurants, near a nice park, and just blocks from the lake. Sitting on the front porch watching the town stroll by is a relaxing way to spend an evenng. There are three spacious bedrooms with ensuite bathroms, a roomy sitting room, and large kitchen. We did have one problem but the manager responded within minutes and had it repaired quickly.

Excellent location!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for our mother and daughters weekend. Walking distance to all of our shops, spa and restaurants. Short driving distance for wine tasting. We are looking forward to next year and another visit to the Summerhill House.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review! I hope you took advantage of some of the wine tasting coupons we left you? They are some of our favourites. And when you have almost 100 wineries to choose from its good to have a couple of ideas about the smaller ones! Summerhill House is one of the most popular vacation rentals in town because of its location and great set up! In the warmer weather people love that upper balcony! Looking forward to talking to you about next year! Janet
