4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10, full kitchen and Gas BBQ in the private garden

The historically accurate fence and house colours make this one of the most photographed in Niagara on the Lake. Marrakech Mansion was built around 1880 the interior like the exterior enjoys many of the historical features of the time. We have added a Moroccan flavour with imported lighting, artwork and colour.

The garden: You will love the large garden with antique roses, perennial flowers and large grassed area. The garden has in-ground sprinklers so it always looks its best

Eating outside: A patio with afternoon shade and a private garden that enjoys afternoon sun. A Moroccan table & chairs are located in both areas. The gas barbecue is on the sunny side of the house.

First annual family vacation

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful home with every amenity we could possible think of. The bedrooms had beautiful bedding. Towels were great too!

Lots of homey touches; pictures and books and wallhangings. The bedrooms had lovely furniture. Just a great place.

The home was in pristine condition and had a helpful binder of info on the kitchen table, which we utilized more than once.

Would recommend this home and the owner/operator to anyone. He was prompt to respond to any inquiries we had prior to the trip and everything was just as he said.

Owner's Response: This is our vacation home too so we decorate with things we enjoy. Many of the framed photos in the library are of my ancestors, my father on the camel in Egypt during WW2, my Grandfather and Great Grandfather in the photo with the safe. The books are mostly those my wife has read, the sailing and war history mine. My cleaning people are proud of the work they do and love ths houses as much as I do. Thank your for your vote of confidence, I hope to see you again.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5
Marrakech Mansion was all that was described and pictured, and more! The setting was quiet, but less than a five minute walk to the centre of town. The lovely historical home was charming, colourful and cozy, but roomy and equipped with all the amenities. It slept eight people easily, and the beds were really comfortable! The interior was spotlessly clean, with fresh linens and towels, and smallish, but very functional kitchen. The perennial gardens are a sanctuary, and there were so many comfortable spots, inside and out, to gather: the sitting rooms and dining room; front porch; back and side patios; and the lawns. The house has a central air system, as well as a large window unit on the landing of the second floor. We only used the air one of the three nights; it did not cool the bedrooms on the second floor as well as it did the rest of the house.

Don, the owner, was accommodating and helpful. He allowed us to drop our gear off early on the day we checked in. He let us know ahead of time that he would be coming to mow the lawn and put out the garbage the morning after our arrival. As soon as he heard that the toaster was out of order, he went out to replace it.

We did not explore the area too much, as we wanted to tuck in with family under one roof, but there are myriad activities in the area- kayaking, paddleboarding, biking and hiking, vineyard tours and wine-tasting, to name a few. A few of us visited the Falls early one morning, before the tour buses descended, and in the evenings, we walked down to the park on the river, right around the corner from the house. Some of us strolled the main street and window-shopped. There is a small grocery store in the centre of town, but for more selection, we went to St. Catharine's-about ten miles away. We found a fantastic bakery, Willlow, just outside town, and ordered one of the best cakes I've ever tasted! We had one dinner at Zee's, in downtown NOTL. It was fair, and the service was mediocre.

I would highly recommend the Marrakech Mansion for any group visiting the area, and hope to return there some day!

Owner's Response: You are right about the AC upstairs. The home was built in 1860 long before AC or insulation! There is a shortage of air returns upstairs that makes it difficult to cool. The best way to keep upstairs reasonably cool is to keep the AC on all of the time with drapes, closed and doors open. The close proximity to the lake negates the need for AC a lot of the time as you discovered. Open all of the screened windows and enjoy the cool evening breeze off of the lake. Thank you for your review and I hope to see you again.

Marrakech Mansion stay at Niagara on the Lake

  • 5 of 5
We brought our family here for a vacation as many of them had not been to Canada or seen the Falls. We had a great time and Marrakech is by far one of the best places to stay at NOTL. It is in the heart of town and close to all the stores PLUS just one block from the lake and all the paths!
I would recommend this place to anybody looking for a great historic home to stay in. Great yard and house layout!

Owner's Response: Niagara on the lake covers a huge area. It goes all the way out to the new Outlet Mall on the QEW highway. If you want to visit Niagara on the Lake it is important to try and book a rental in the Historic core of the town. Both of my houses (I own Casablanca Cottage as well) are in the core of the old town. The Mansion was built in about 1860, Casablanca is much younger being built in about 1925. Staying in either house allows you to walk to the restaurants, the theatre, grocery store and most shops in just a few minutes. They are both mine and I am proud to own them. I try to keep them in the condition that we keep our own home. Clean, neat and orderly. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and your family enjoyed visiting Canada.

Marketing Retreats at Marrakech Mansian

  • 5 of 5
It is with great confidence, knowing my clients will have a wonderful time at the Marrakech Mansion every time I book this location in Niagara-On-The-Lake. Clean, Spacious and homey are three words I hear often, during their stay. We come together to work hard on our Marketing Plans, and enjoy a weekend celebration of wine tours (with Niagara Getaways)picked up at the door, and shopping and High Tea at the Prince of Wales all within walking distance. The owner Don has thought of everything and you will not be disappointed choosing this vacation house for your home away from home.

Owner's Response: Most people rent the house for a vacation however I do have a few customers who rent for a retreat or business meeting. Whatever your reason for coming to Niagara on the Lake Marrakech Mansion should fill the bill for you. It is 1 block from Queen street where the restaurants and shops can be found and 1/ block from Queens Royal park on the river. The house was build in the late 1800s when high ceilings and big windows were the thing to do. Both of these features make the Mansion an enjoyable place for your stay in Niagara on the lake.

Easy booking, fantastic location, beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for all the groomsmen for our wedding weekend. From the first email inquiry, Don was very accessible, accommodating and quick to respond to all our questions. He even offered spa vouchers which came in handy right before the wedding. On check-in, everything was as described. It is a clean, bright and beautiful house with lots of charm. The connected living and dining room areas provided the perfect communal hangout spot for everyone. Located only a 2 minute walk from the main strip of Old Town NOTL on Queen Street, it was in a prime location. Also, since we were all driving in from all over, it was great that there were parking spots to fit up to 5 cars. The absolute best part though was that this house was dog friendly! We highly recommend this to anyone looking for a vacation rental in NOTL. Thanks Don for everything.

Owner's Response: My wife and I have rented Vacation homes in many parts of the world and we know how frustrating it is to ask for information and wait days for a response. When traveling I take my computer and always rent places with Wi-Fi so that I can respond quickly. "The Mansion" is decorated in a Moroccan style with bright colours, lanterns and some great Architectural salvage that I bought in Marrakech. The house is big, with all four bedrooms upstairs, the main floor is devoted to social space, the 11 ft. ceilings make it feel even bigger.
Location is always key when looking for a place to stay. Both of my houses are very close to Queen street, and the river making for a largely car free time in Niagara on the Lake. Thank you for your review and I hope to see you and your friends again.

our vacation at Marrakech Mansion

  • 5 of 5
My family as well as our friends spent 2 wonderful nights at the Mansion.We found the mansion and the garden clean and beautiful with flowers, picnic benches,a Barbeque etc. The inside of the mansion was spacious and comfortable with many sofas,and reclining couches, the furniture and carpets were clean and the kitchen was amazing. Don had everything that we required in the immaculate and clean kitchen like crockery, utensils, towels etc. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very clean and spacious with garden views. The den was full of interesting books, board games, movies and a sofa bed to lie down and enjoy these. Cleanliness and comfort were part of Marrakech mansion. About 5 minutes walk from the mansion we found Lake Ontario with picnic spots and a tiny beach and the main shopping centre is also very near the mansion. We enjoyed our stay and regret that we spent only 2 nights. We would definitely like to go back to spend a longer period in the mansion with our friends and family. It was a happy and enjoyable break away from the city.

Owner's Response: A clean property is our number one priority. I employ a husband and wife team who are the only people who clean the house. Having the same cleaning team all of the time means everything goes back into the same location and the same cleaning routine is employed. The garden is my space, since I retired I spend one day a week in Niagara on the Lake maintaining the gardens at Casablanca Cottage and Marrakech Mansion. Casablanca, my three bedroom home does not take very long as it is a smaller property but The Mansion grounds will soak up as much time as I give it! The interior of the house is painted in the colours that we enjoy and equipped the way we want our vacation home equipped. I am happy that you enjoyed the house as much as we do.

Location

From the Owner

Location - Location - Location This is where you want to be if living or staying on Niagara on the Lake. In the Historic old town, a short walk to the grocery store, the pub and all things good!

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

Niagara Falls is just a 20 minute drive away. The drive takes you through the wine region and past several of the area's 50+ wineries

all of which will welcome you in for a tasting.

The Shaw festival is at the heart of any Niagara on the Lake visit with plays by George Bernard Shaw and contemporaries. Go to the Shaw web site to view a list of plays and buy tickets. Buy your tickets early however as they sell out quickly.

The oldest Golf Course in North America is just around the corner.

You can walk and carry your clubs to the course.

The war of 1812 between the British and the USA was fought right on this ground and pottery shards are everywhere from the great fire of December 1813 when the town was burnt by retreating Americans. (We have forgiven them!) Walk or bike the flat streets and enjoy the

history.
