As a major tourist destination, Niagara Falls has many accommodations for the travelling
public: hotels, motels, camp grounds and Bed & Breakfasts. Another form of accommodation
is known as a Cottage Rental Dwelling.
Cottage Rental Dwelling is a residential house that is rented out by the owner for
short stays (traditionally, less than 28 days). Many travelers are interested in
this type of accommodation because it provides kitchen and dining space, multiple
bedrooms and a yard that will often be attractive to large groups travelling together
(sports teams, et al.).
Please be advised that only a handful of Cottage Rental Dwellings are licensed by
the municipality and have been appropriately inspected. Niagara Falls City Council
has directed that staff review Cottage Rental Dwellings and come up with policies,because of negative impacts these accommodations have had on neighbouring residences.
The following Cottage Rental Dwellings are licensed by the municipality. If you
choose to stay in an unlicensed Cottage Rental Dwelling, you may be visited by a
By-law Enforcement officer and you may upset the surrounding property owners. Please
do your due diligence when booking your stay in Niagara Falls.
