Newly renovated cottage situated in a quiet residential neighborhood , and just a 10 minute scenic drive to Niagara Falls. We are located on Grand Island, nestled in the Mighty Niagara River bordering the US/Canadian border. Buckhorn State Park is a 5 minute walk and offers a 3 mile nature trail that ends at a peninsula in the Niagara River with a view of the Mist from the Falls. Beaver Island State Park is a 15 minute drive and has a swimming beach and picnic areas. There is a local restaurant which is a 5 minute walk and offers a fabulous Western New York Fish Fry! The City of Buffalo is a 20 minute drive as well and offers a wealth of activities , live music and great restaurants. Whether you are looking to enjoy the great outdoors, see the Falls, enjoy the city or just kick back and relax, our cottage is ideal.
My husband Tom and I have lived on Grand Island for most of our lives. We know and love this area because of it's natural beauty and plentiful activities. Tom is a naturalist and sportsman who has been birding, fishing, boating and hunting the Niagara Region his entire life. I love to hike ,bike and run the many beautiful places on Grand Island and Niagara Falls.
We are excited to open up this very special home to our guests and know that you will enjoy the serene country setting.
Our home has the privacy of a quiet neighborhood while still being 10 mins from the Falls and 5 minutes from all the conveniences you need for a wonderful vacation.
Our home offers a quiet retreat after a long day of sightseeing. Grand Island is unique because it is surrounded by the Niagara River offering plentiful areas to enjoy the water. It is the perfect place to enjoy the Niagara area!
This cottage was right across the river from my aunt and uncle's house and provided the perfect solution for us out-of-towners. There were 7 adult family members that journeyed home to Niagara Falls to celebrate an early Thanksgiving with my aunt and uncle. Plenty of room for all of us. A tasty bowl of locally grown apples awaited us as well as some Halloween candy! Thank you for a great stay....oh, and The Beach House Resturant right around the corner is a Western NY must!
What a great home! It had EVERYTHING that we needed. It was cozy, comfortable & quiet. Nancy left a great platter of cheese & fruit that we enjoyed throughout the two nights of our stay. A beautiful bouquet of flowers was on the dining room table. A bonfire in the backyard was set up perfectly for us. So much better than staying in a hotel. 15 minutes from NU. 15 minutes from Niagara Falls. Thank you Nancy!
The house was perfect for our needs clean, comfortable, centrally located in a beautiful quiet and safe neighborhood. We found it easy to get to shopping and local attractions including my brothers wedding at Niagra Falls. Nancy was terrific and gave us recommendations for local restaurants including the "Beach House" that was with in walking distance and served good home cooked food. She greeted us and showed us around the house, provided us with a Toms shopping card a lovely bowl of fruit, a map of the area and plenty of brochures of the local attractions. We would definitely stay at this house again and recommend it to friends.
My family of 7 (including my husband and I, and both adult children and children under 10) stayed in this wonderful house. Nancy and Tom were a delight to work with and stayed in touch with us through the planning process. Tom met us at the house and gave us a warm welcome.
The house was very clean and well maintained. There was a map of Niagara Falls which he kindly reviewed with us and told us of other local things to do. Nancy informed us of some of the festivals going on that weekend which was appreciated. There was cheese and fruit awaiting us and even popsicles for the kids. These extra touches were very thoughtful.
They were very accomodating and very fair and thoughtful in their interactions.
This was the first time we have rented a house and they made the experience extremely positive and something I would do again without hesitation.
We built great memories at this house with our family, and this will go down as one of the best family vacations we have had. Thanks so much Tom and Nancy for contributing to a very memorable, enjoyable vacation.
This place and owners are like family. Home is clean, calm and yet very close to Falls! Thanks!
I arrived at this charming cottage with my 3 teenagers looking forward to spending a week of relaxation. We were welcomed by the owner, Tom, to this spotless cottage. Tom was very helpful in directing us all to the local eateries, sight seeing spots and fishing holes.
The house included everything a family needs for a getaway. I was delighted to see that the kitchen was stocked with almost all cooking and baking tools needed.
The neighborhood was peaceful and just a stones throw from Niagara Falls and Buffalo. I look forward to returning to this cottage in the future!
