We will not be able to respond to your request between January 10th-18th ( 2015). Our calendar is up to date and the rates are specifically spelled out for each season .Have a Happy New year and we will get back to you ASAP.This a very special home built in 1888 as a summer residence for the family of a well known Buffalonian.

Beautiful lawns spread across almost an acre of land. Awake to the sunrise shimmering over the river. Enjoy secluded picnics and bon fires on your own property at the rivers edge. Bring your fishing gear to fish off the dock.

Fall and Winter offer opportunities to enjoy the outdoors or cozy up to a fire inside.

As was the trend in the late 1800's, wealthy families would summer on Grand Island, located between Buffalo and Niagara Falls, NY. There were resorts and clubs to cater to these families. There were also a number of private homes built. Our Home on Riversedge was one of them.

We will provide a unique and memorable experience for you. Something for all ages. Definately child friendly. Reserve your spot today!

Our home is situated just across the street from the Niagara River and has 4/5 bedrooms with 2 full bathrooms with tubs and showers.

One bath is on the first floor, the other on the second.

We have a lovely parlor where you might choose to relax and read or visit. Maybe a game of chess or checkers will help you pass the time.

The formal dining room will make your special occasions truly remarkable!

Our state of the art country kitchen provides the perfect gathering place for the family. Custom concrete countertops, hardwood floors and a spacious breakfast bar provides for the best way to start the day during your exciting Niagara stay!

Our family room is quite large and features a large HD flat screen TV. You won't believe the panoramic views of the river to the front and the woods behind this very private residence!

There are flat screen TV's in the 3 upstairs bedrooms.

About Anne and Bob Fahning

We have always had an interest in history and older homes. When this house became available we were able to see past the years of neglect . It is an amazing home with 3 floors and is situated on 190 feet of waterfront at the waters edge. It is truly a unique family spot. So much to see and do for every member of the family. 2013 is our first year, and so far all of our guests have been extremely complimentary about their stay at our Home on River's Edge. We look forward to making yourstay the most memorable yet!.

Anne and Bob Fahning purchased this house in 2012

Why Anne and Bob Fahning chose Niagara Falls

This home is rich in history and happens to be only 1/4 mile from our home so it was the perfect fit for us.

What makes this house unique

You'll have a unique opportunity to stay in a somewhat rural community while being only 10-15 minutes from both Buffalo and Niagara Falls. No hustle and bustle here. You can actually hear the birds chirping.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Anne and Bob,

Thank you for opening your lovely home to us, we had a fabulous time. You had bikes for the kids and plenty of outside toys for the younger ones. The house was nicely stocked with bath towels and other things.

The kids had a great time at the dock and bon fire last night.

Is was a perfect getaway for us!

Perfect Holiday Setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a most wonderful five days, including a delightful Christmas gathering at this lovely restored home. The layout and amenities are perfect for entertaining (several rooms to spread out in, all the pots, pans, bakeware, utensils you need) yet it's a very cozy and peaceful setting for relaxing as well, especially by the fireplace. Large bedrooms, beautiful beds/furniture make for a very comfortable stay. We hosted 12 people for dinner and everyone raved about the setting. I've rented on the Island and in Canada previously during the holidays and this house wins hands down. The owner was lovely, helpful, and responsive. You will not be disappointed. Thank you so much, Anne and Bob.

What a wonderful home.

  • 5 of 5

We are originally from the island, and wanted to stay in a rental rather than family so that people could come and visit us, instead of having to travel over WNY to see everyone. So glad we did. Large with a beautiful view of the river. Very well stocked. Thank you Anne and Bob for letting us stay at your beautiful rental. Unfortunately, the weather didn't always cooperate with us.

Family Time

  • 3 of 5

The house is as the pictures state. Read the fine print, house can accommodate 12 but you pay extra for any persons over 4. Enjoyed the river view. The owner though helpful can be somewhat intrusive. Loved being with family

March family time

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at this location. Thanks to Anne and Bob for a lovely setting, and very comfortable place to be enjoying family together. Our only criticism was the blizzard that hit on Wednesday, however, I don't feel that that was under control of the owners! I appreciated Anne coming over to work on the shoveling, and even with 14 inches of new snow, we had no problems getting out and about. I would encourage others to enjoy this lovely property. It was a joy being there!

Beautiful Home In Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

First I want to say just how gracious the home owners are, Anne and Bob. They really made us feel welcome. We rented their home as a 50th Birthday getaway for our mom so we could take her to see the falls, which is only 10 minutes away. Anne made a point to even bring her an ice cream cake. There was a total of 10 of us and plenty of room for everyone. We are definitely planning to return in the future.

Thanks Anne & Bob!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay in this turn of the century home, very roomy and elegant along with the amenities as detailed on the web site, very clean and well manicured lawn, everything you need is at your finger tips.

Very reasonable rates and this place is in the perfect location on the Niagara river for venturing out: minutes from Niagara Falls, Buffalo, or the Vineyards in the Niagara Wine Trail.

Thank you Anne & Bob: you are very courteous.

Take a trip to Long Cliff Vineyard & Winery, http://www.longcliffwinery.com, the owner will give you a vary enjoyable and educational tour.

Also go aboard the Spirit of Buffalo schooner for an evening cruise and wine tasting.

On Grand Island, do not forget to visit the Riverstone Grill, as seen on Man v Food in 2010, the food is great, and for the beer and wine lovers, great selections.
