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.

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 for....hockey, 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.

This was amazing
We spent a phenomenal weekend at this property with a group of about 40 people. The space more than fit us and offered so much to do. The hosts, Ken and Adam were absolutely phenomenal as well. Definitely will be back next year.
Thank you for choosing our StaynPlay facilities...Your group of young adults displayed a commendable respect to us as hosts and the property as well... I watched the entire group playing volleyball and they were truly enjoying their time together... Please keep in touch and we look forward to hosting your group in future... Stay safe and enjoy the upcoming Labor Day weekend... Thanks again... Ken and Adam...
Bachelor party weekend
Myself and the guys that stayed on the property had a wonderful time! We originally had the lower loft (which was great) but Adam (kens son) gave us the upper loft also, since it wasn’t being used, so we had an extra beds and so that we could feel extra comfy and made us feel really welcomed! Ken was helpful anytime I had questions about anything and even let our group check in extra early so we could make use of our stay! The people that stayed next door were also friendly and had a blast playing some volleyball with them and their entire family.
Only things I wish was that the lower loft was maybe swept up a little better and made sure that there wasn’t any garage left behind from a previous group. We had some rioting potatoes under the sink that caused there to be quite a bit of fruit flies to be flying around inside. Other then those small things everything else was great! Thanks again for letting us stay ken and would probably stay there again!
Thank you for the update.... Not sure what happened with the 2 concerns you had, but be sure it will be addressed...We look forward to hosting your group in future...
Please keep in touch... Thanks Ken and Adam...

We brought a group of individuals with disabilities for vacation and there were more than enough beds for the 8 of us. Ken meet us when we arrived and made us feel welcome. He was always available and had a someone checking to make sure we were ok and if we needed anything. There were 2 kitchen areas we had access to on the 1st floor, 1 kitchen in the basement and according to several of my individuals count, 31 beds. The cottage is 10-15 mins from restaurants and Clifton Hills Falls and all the attractions. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone with large families for reunions, family vacations or a girls weekend away.
We are thrilled that your group really enjoyed themselves...We like to give our groups a "home away from home" feel... Your group left the home as if no one even stayed there!!! Thanks again for allowing us to host your group and we look forward seeing you again future... Please keep in touch...
Thanks ...Ken and Debbie and Noni and her housekeeping staff...
