About Ken Moore...Thank you for considering Stay and Play for your visit to Niagara..

My name is Ken Moore, and my wife Debbie and I have lived in our great City of Niagara Falls all our lives. Debbie and I have been married 43 years and first dated in high school. I have recently retired from the Niagara Falls Fire Department after 36 1/2 years of service. Our Cottage Lodge boasts as one of the most fire safe properties in Niagara, and we pride ourselves in keeping our guest safe during their stay. We also support MADD and will arrange guest transportation and will even personally shuttle our guests if required. Debbie has put a 'lady's touch' in the Cottage Lodge to give it the feel of ' home away from home' and have had repeat guests, sports groups, families, and groups of all types from around the world return for over 25 years. Debbie will also arrange special home cooked meal package(s) should you want to take a break from the kitchen at any time during your stay. Living in Niagara our entire lives, has enabled us to prioritize the venues we feel our guests would appreciate most. We can create a 'one stop shopping' experience for our guests and assist in arranging an itinerary with virtually no wasted trial by error visits during your stay. We have many life experiences in Niagara, and have visited most eateries, attractions, golf courses, night clubs, etc. and if you visit Tourism Niagara's website we can further assist with your itinerary if you wish. We cater to all age groups and many of our guests have first visited us for their bachelor and bachelorette parties, and return for many years later with their co-workers, families, for anniversaries and Christmas and New Years celebrations, etc. Many years ago, Debbie, myself, our 2 children Adam and Jessica visited a dude ranch in Wickenburg Arizona and from that experience we always felt we could duplicate the the great 'homey' feel but in a Niagara Falls environment. We feel this is the key to our existence and our groups have been returning for over 25 years, the same as at the dude ranch.

Ken Moore...Thank you for considering Stay and Play for your visit to Niagara.. purchased this chateau / country house in 1993

Why Ken Moore...Thank you for considering Stay and Play for your visit to Niagara.. chose Niagara Falls

Our property is located virtually a 5 minute drive from the most attractions, casinos, The Falls, and access to the QEW, 420, and Highway 20 is only a block away. The Cottage Lodge is a 150 year old plus rural home and is located on a private 1 acre estate setting on the 18th tee of the golf course next door. We are only the 3rd owner of this 200 year old property which began as one of Niagara's first dairy farms. The original homestead has 7 big bedrooms with a total of 13 queen sized beds, large kitchen, living room, games room and a laundry room if required for our guests. The 3 car garage has been converted to games room with pool table, sports screens, kitchenette, and is equipped with 5 double futon bunk beds and a 3 piece bath for your comfort. The tack building has been totally refurbished and converted into an upper B&B style loft with 2 bedrooms , kitchenette, 4 piece bath and living area with beer fridge and satellite sports TV. The lower loft area also has 2 bedrooms and kitchenette, common games room with pool table, sports screen, and wet bar, as well as a 3 piece bath. Debbie prepared all the bedding , window accents, and again gives you that home setting appeal. Our Cottage Lodge is well known locally, and many families arrange wedding party stays, family reunions with guests from all over North America, and even local funerals where loved ones can congregate in a 'home away from home' environment. Again, this property is conveniently located a short walk or ride from restaurants, indoor water park, spa facilities, groceries, walking paths that take you throughout the Niagara, factory outlet mall, and the largest new mall in Ontario complete with a Bass Pro store you can actually go sport fishing at. Adam is actively involved in assisting our guests with their itinerary and is an avid golfer and can arrange packages at most of the Niagara Area Courses. During your stay we can arrange 'complimentary pizza' nites at our friend's 'Molson's' sports bar.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The Cottage Lodge property is located on a private 1 acre estate property with virtually no neighbours. We like it that our guests can enjoy a 'live and let live' atmosphere with music and laughter and knowing they are bothering no one. The outdoors has a regulation volleyball court and nite lighting can be arranged. There are 2 fire pits for our guests to gather in the evening hours and enjoy hotdogs and roasted marshmellows while they solve all the world's problems over a nite cap or hot chocolate. There are also 2 horseshoe pits and many groups play to establish bragging rights until they return the following year. The Cottage Lodge is available yearround and hosts many groups that come, baseball, golf, soccer, etc. tournaments.... Celebrating New Years at the Falls with famous Canadian recording artists, at the the largest televised New Years venue in Canada. Family and friends reserve our facilities to celebrate Christmas as if in the comfort of their own homes. Our groups range from business groups, religious retreats, hobby groups, quilting and sewing ladies, and has accommodated groups from the NHL, CFL, and such greats as Walter Gretzky, Marcel Dionne, the late Doug Jarret of the Chicago Blackhawks etc. etc.....We recently hosted Kyle Chipchura of the Phoenix Coyotes and his wife Nancy, as well as their family and friends when they got married in the Niagara Area this past August. The family reserved the Cottage Lodge for 5 days and had a Saturday evening celebration with 100 guests and live music, family BBQ and horseshoe tournament. Debbie and I have since travelled to Phoenix and have enjoyed meeting Nancy and her family and watching Kyle play. We look forward to the opportunity in hosting your group in future and will endeavour to serve you in such a way, that you will revisit us. Over 75 per cent of our bookings are either repeat or word of mouth...We pride ourselves on this, and your Cottage Lodge experience is our No.1 priority.

Totally Worth It!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at one of the Stay and Play Niagara properties during the first week of July. There were 14 of us in all, ranging from 7 to 75 years old (6 adults and 8 kids). The owner, Ken Moore is wonderful. He met us at the house upon our arrival, gave us a tour of the home, and answered all of our questions. He is one of the nicest people we met during our stay—and even when we had to call him after hours because of a locked bedroom door (kids doing what kids do) he graciously came over and took care of it with no problem.

We were very happy with the accommodations, as there was enough space for all of the adults and teenagers to have some privacy. The house was clean and the kitchen well stocked with cookware and utensils we needed to fix a big breakfast before our days of adventure. In the evenings the adults were able to relax, and if our kids still had energy to burn, we were not concerned about them disturbing other people, something that we would have had to deal with in a hotel.

The location is great, Niagara Falls tourist area was close enough for us, and there are all kinds of restaurants, stores and outlet shopping within short distances. Wal-Mart wasn’t far, and we even ventured into the regular grocery store which is on the same street as the property, just a couple blocks down. A trip here allowed us to purchase the ingredients for s’mores, and our kids had a blast roasting marshmallows over the fire pit in the backyard—a magical first time experience for most of them. We could not do that in a hotel, which made renting this property totally worth it!

We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Ken and Debbie!

Parents 50th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

What a phenomenal time! The house was charming and clean. Ken, Adam and Vince went above and beyond to make sure that we had everything we needed. There were over 20 people in our group, kids and adults. Plenty of room to all hang and lots of things to do. Great ideas shared by Ken and gang which only made our stay that much better. We took a fantastic bike trip to Niagara on the Lake which Ken helped us with as well as a fabulous dinner at Strada West. Thank you Ken! What a treat. Would totally recommend to anyone. My family is already planning their next trip!

Family gathering June 2016

  • 5 of 5

Ken couldn't have done more to make us feel comfortable and welcome.

Checked on us each day and went the extra mile when needed.

Lots of us in our family group, and many activities available to keep

old and young and in-betweens busy and comfortable.

Only 15 minutes or so to the Falls.

Thank you, Ken, we would do this again in a heartbeat!

Loved it!
