Description from owner


Great location, only 14 min. drive to the brink of NIAGARA FALLS! Our "hoblet" has the look of a woodsy cabin, but is spacious and modern.600 sq. feet in total with a large studio living room, separate bedroom and a bathroom with a built in 2 seater far infrared sauna.( Please note the sleeping configuration would be a queen bed in the separate bedroom, while the 2nd sleeping area is the studio's livingroom, where we can provide a cot or a queen (or single) airbed mattress with bedding.This living room area is over 350 sq ft . Outside is viewed through 5 sets of double glass patio doors & 3 skylights. The green living roof is very special. Your "yard" is a hardwood forest with a small stream running through. Beautifully landscaped, out in the country yet only 15 minutes from the brink of the falls. Emphasis on nature and good energy. On site and for your viewing is our equine rescue, home to 7 donkeys, 1 mule, the latest rescue; Sheldon the pot belly pig and his little brother, and Monty and George are 2 sweet little goats that will greet you each morning. Groot and Gretel are our latest rescues and will win your heart. Your rental is completely private from the main house, has its own driveway with a delightful walk through the trees and past the "circle of elements", a great fire pit with boulders encompassing that space (wood is provided for your fire). .

Wonderful walks by the forest, ponds, waterfall, all help to create a very special energy in and around the "cabin". Your host, Petra, has received the Ambassador of Tourism Award from the Canadian government during her eight years as a professional tour guide in Niagara Falls.

Please see our website for more info, photos of the "space" and the surrounding area, we look forward to meeting you here at Natures Energy Centre and Sanctuary in beautiful Niagara Falls, Canada.

For guests staying two or more nights we are happy to offer firewood for the circle of elements (fire pit), use of fishing rods and a meet & greet with the donkeys. We also will gladly provide personalized local trip planning and suggestions for beyond the normal tourist attractions.

Please be advised that there is a $15.00 charge per night for each of the 3rd & 4th person. There are a few options for the bed types and placement of them depending on your situation and needs. Please contact us before arrival so we can determine what option works best. There is a rollaway and airmattress bed, all with linens and blankets provided). Children must be a minimum of 14 years of age. Please note, maximum adults is three, or two adults with two children. As the "hoblet" and "twiglet" are part of the sanctuary, (as well our residence) we do ask that our guests respect the privacy (of humans and critters) and not have visitors unless previously discussed and arranged. Thank you.

Please note that due to our rural position (in the country and surrounded by forests) there is now a charge for internet/wifi and maynot be a strong signal. Other options are available so if this is important to your needs please contact us to discuss options. Movies cannot be streamed as there are no cable or DSL lines in the vicinity. Uploads or downloads can be slow from my system which is only 3GB PER MONTH.

Most folks now arrive with their own data on their phones and this has been working well for them (so we are told). For our corporate clients, authors etc. we would be happy to offer other options.

We are thrilled to offer the "Twiglet", the tiny house/cottage, as a another option here at Natures Energy Centre. Please look up our listing with Trip Advisor if the Hoblet is booked or you are looking for another unique experience. Listing #9629914. Both the Hoblet & Twiglet offer the same experience with the animals and outdoor areas. We would like to thank the hundreds of guests through the years for your encouragement and wonderful reviews, you have been our inspiration for the Twiglet!

Please note a one nights deposit is required to hold your reservation (non refundable). As we have a strict cancellation policy, we strongly suggest cancellation insurance for longer stays.

The hoblet & twiglet revenue helps to fund the animals, their upkeep and other rescue situations that come our way, thank you.

Getting around

We are right in the heart of the Niagara Peninsula. It sounds like a commercial, sorry, but there is so much more than just the falls here. Great "antiquing", some of the finest beaches in the province. The capital of Ontario just an hour and a half away (Toronto), and the international border. As we are small animal sanctuary, we are located in the country so a car (whether your own or rented at the bus or train station, or airports (Bufffalo and Toronto) is a must. We would be happy to suggest outings and day trips that suit your personal interests.

Interaction with guest

Upon arrival we will greet you and bring you to the hoblet. If you have been in contact with us regarding your personal likes and interests, your information will be there upon arrival. We will also give you an orientation of the hoblet and the area, as well as info on the rescued animals here. We live on the property and are available to help you and suggest attractions and other "adventures". We pride ourselves on our personal service, while maintaining and respecting each others privacy.
