My husband and I came to Niagara Falls for our honeymoon 10 years ago, and in looking for a place to stay to celebrate the big anniversary this year, we discovered this wonderful place. :-D We couldn't have imagined how perfect it would be! It was wonderfully close to all of the things we needed, from delicious restaurants, all of the fun and beauty of the Falls, even a Walmart not too far away for groceries and such (all within 15-20 minutes!), and yet was a complete get-away. With the beauty and quiet of the woods, the sanctuary of the animals, and the serene way that Petra and Mush have set up the Hoblet, it is about as relaxing as it can be. Any issues that arose (which weren't many, but were things involving temperature and phone reception) were quickly addressed and fixed, and we were made to feel as comfortable as could possibly be. We even had a fire pit set up for us, which was great for us city folk! ;-) Petra and Mush are such kind, hospitable and fun people, and their animals are darling. Our favorites were Monty and George the goats, who were total loves (especially if you had some carrots!). We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to have a unique & relaxing stay! :-)
My fiancé and I have been to The Hoblet 4 times now! It is the most amazing place we have ever been. Everything is so peaceful! we love going out every day to give treats the all the donkeys, goats and piggies! Monty and George will great you every morning! But they are picky so make sure to cut up their snacks nice and small!!
The last time we went they just adopted two new piggies!! They love to squeal away!
I can't wait to get back there again this year and see petra and mush again!
They are always so accommodating and welcoming!
Don't miss out this little hidden peaceful gem!!
We can't recommended The Hoblet highly enough. Petra and Mush are among the loveliest folks we have met. We booked this piece of paradise well in advance of Christmas, knowing that it was just 15 minutes from Niagara Falls if we wanted to enjoy the lights and holiday celebrations but intuitively feeling it would be a soul-restoring retreat if we preferred to enjoy the solitude of this energy renewing sanctuary. From the moment we arrived, Petra's warm welcome and the beautiful, peaceful surroundings made us feel right at home. We brought carrots and apples and enjoyed giving the animals a light snack each day and the little kitchenette allowed us the opportunity to make our own comforting snack of grilled cheese and soup. Whether bundled up and watching the new day arrive with a hot tea on the patio each morning or relaxing in the recliner by the cozy fire with wine and cheese at night, The Hoblet was a peaceful, restful time for us and we are so grateful we discovered it. We will be back! Your have our heartfelt thanks Petra and Mush.
Petra is a natural hostess: she is welcoming, friendly, accommodating and full of excellent recommendations. She set us up for a wonderful stay, and followed through on every bit of it.
The Hoblet itself is cozy, well-appointed and a perfect size for a couple or small family. The infrared sauna is a luxurious touch that's great after a long walk in the surrounding woods.
And who could forget the critters! Such personalities! Waking up and taking a stroll to give morning snacks to all the fellas is just the best way to start your day.
Overall, if you need a place to reflect or recoup, the Hoblet is a fantastic place to do it. We will most definitely be back.
My sister and I have booked our yearly getaway at The Hoblet for the last four years and will continue to do so for years to come. The cabin is clean, cozy and inviting and is equipped with everything you need. Its' peaceful setting amongst the trees makes you feel in touch with nature and is the perfect spot to unwind,yet is only minutes to Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake. The animals that that call The Hoblet 'home' add to its' serenity. I cannot say enough about the owners. They are amongst the nicest people I have ever met and are more than accommodating to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. The only reason I give it 5-star rating is because 10 stars is not an option!
