A FEW RECENT REVIEWS:

This BB at 917 n colony has been our meeting place for many years. GLENN our host has been the reason we keep coming back to the area and his always promoting the

Restaurant /bar and sports in the area. Always making it easy to visit Grand Island

to the BB business and good for the tourist to keep coming back.

My fiancé and I stayed at the Niagara River Inn last winter. The house on the river

is beautiful and Glenn couldn't have done a better job in making sure we had

everything we needed. Kitchens, bathrooms came fully stocked and there was

plenty of entertainment provided. Glenn also provided us with a map of all the

local hot spots including all of the best restaurants, grocery stores and tourist sites.

We cannot wait to come back one day as Glenn is the best B&B host we have ever had.

Thank you Glenn! Matthew Tennett 18 Harding Ave Hatboro, PA

*****

We spent one of the most enjoyable weekends we have had when we recently

stayed at the Niagara River Inn to have a close view of the Grand Island Poker Run.

We would never have dined in local restaurants on Grand Island had we not been

staying there and were looking forward to spending a weekend there each summer.

Hi Glenn: Staying at your home made ALL the difference in our vacation to the Buffalo

area for my niece's wedding. The home is ideally situated, spacious, well-stocked, and

reasonably priced. We would definitely return on future trips to the area to visit my family. Sincerely ~ Marsha Grim 1625 W. Brookdale Place Fullerton, CA

*****

This home was awesome and because of its rental we were able to come there to see Niagara Fallsand was looking forward to future visits. Terry Violette 26 View St Manchester CT

*****

We had a great time. The view of the River at this house just can't be beat. Photos do not do it justice. Also, We were very glad that the owner was around to

help us with a medical emergency and was able to take my mother to the hospital. It turned out ok, but could have ruined our vacation. So, thank you Glenn for your help right when we needed it. Tracy and Mel - Ohio

*****

AND SOME PAST REVIEWS:

Moody & Smith family - This is a 5 star home ! The location was perfect. It is right in between Niagara Falls and Buffalo. It was very convenient for sightseeing. There were 9 of us aged 9 to 59. There was plenty to keep everyone occupied. The youngest loved fishing on the dock and swimming in the pool. The teenagers loved the pool and theatre room. They all enjoyed smores at the firepit. The older ones enjoyed the deck overlooking the water watching the ducks, geese and the daily heron visit.

*****

The house was as described and more. We have been staying at vacation rental homes for over 15 years and this is by far the best stocked home we have stayed at. It has literally everything you will ever need.

*****

We ate out but the kitchen was well stocked with everything needed including a bottle of wine, spices, coffee, filters and a complete array of pots and pans.

Glenn was a pleasure to work with. He is onsite and available to offer advise and take care of the pool and hot tub. THANKS GLENN FOR SOME WONDERFUL MEMORIES!!

*****

We had a wonderful time & want to come back. Great vacation property and you have kept it up very well. We loved the Pool, Hot Tub, Foosball and Pool Table. Maps and all the extras are a very nice touch. And, thank you for the use of your computer ! Kim, Hakim and Family - Massachusettes

*****

Could not have found a better place to stay.

The Niagara River Inn made our trip memorable. Excellent place to stay with family and friends. Owner of the home, Glenn, is very kind and very helpful person. His kindness and care shows in every inch of the house. He provided us with great touring tips and also to loan us a computer. My husband forgot his laptop and we could not thank Glenn enough since he loaned us his laptop. We enjoyed the hot tub, grilling and sitting by the river. Very peaceful, well maintained property right on the Niagara river.

My kids 4 year old and 2.5 year old keep asking me when are we going back.

My sister was visiting me from India for 3 weeks and this trip was the best memory that she could carry with her back home...thanks to Niagara River Inn.

*****

Whoa, nice view Our stay in November was great. The view of the River is great and the location could not be better. The house offers more than any others and we enjoyed the firepit by the water and TV that is huge, a very nice feature. I recommend it

Take note of the great reviews. There is no manager here, the owner takes great pride in the up keep of the property and greets each and every guest upon check in. Glenn is available 24/7 for anything you might need. He has advice for all the best restaurants and attractions in the area.

Glenn is a singer/songwriter who has toured the US for many years before settling down on Grand Island, NY. He has written a number of songs that have won National and International awards, and has toured all over the United States.

Some well known acoustic performers have even done performances at Glenn's home when they are in the area.

His large collection of stringed instruments are displayed on the walls along with other antiques which give the home a warm and cozy feel that you don't find at other lodging.

Glenn purchased this house in 1994

Why Glenn chose New York

Glenn and takes pride in offering the best lodging with many amenities and all the details to make your stay more enjoyable.

Grand Island is a great location being only 10 minutes from the Falls and Buffalo, near everything with 2 State Parks, a Sand Beach, Hiking/Biking Trails, Golf Courses, Frisbee Golf, Wedding Facilities and a Sledding Hill in Winter

A FEW MORE REVIEWS:

5 stars to be sure. Excellent home. We had a great time relaxing in the pool and the hot tub. The house was fantastic and had everything we needed. Glenn was a lot of help and there when we needed him. We enjoyed our stay, and recommend it very highly.

--------

Thanks so much for the nice place to relax after our long race ! Great house, and you advice was helpful. Location was easy to get to everything. Hope to come back. Lots of fun. Thank You

-------

Glenn, We had a great time, the Pool Table was a big hit with us. The view of the river was spectacular !

-------

Thank you much for a wonderful week in this beautiful home on the Niagara River. The house was neat and clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. We loved the games and we felt very at home here. The maps came in very handy. Just a great vacation for us, thanks.

-------

Thank you Glenn, we had too much fun. Could not think of a better place for our Family Reunion. We had not seen each other in 9 years and we had not even considered a house, and now we would not stay anywhere but a house where the owner is onsite to

offer advise and tips.

So much nicer than any hotel. And, all the extras, I just was not expecting all that. We went to see the Falls, but we had a lot more fun just hanging out at your house. Having you as a host for advise was great.

What makes this house unique

A FEW MORE REVIEWS - From our Guest Book:

-------------

The Perfect place for a Niagara Falls Vacation I've fallen in love with this property since I first stayed there in 2007. The accommodations are pristine and the addition of a theater room is just incredible. My husband and two daughters love this property. The owner is onsite and is the best host ever. If you need him he is right there with information on how to make your trip a blast.

The bedrooms have their own temperature control (a big plus). The view of the river from two of the bedrooms and the living/dining room is priceless.

One of the most beautiful properties and perfect location. After a day of touring, it's just nice to turn on the fireplace and enjoy a nice cup of hot chocolate by the fire. The movies and board games are great. The main bathroom rivals any bathroom in the magazines. Whenever I am in Niagara falls, this is my choice property to stay at. It's just about a 10 minute drive to the falls and border crossing into Canada.

---------

What a great home with everything you could possibly want. A beautiful waterfront view to enjoy the sunrise everyday. A pool, firepit on the river and a dock to fish. We found the location great for visiting Niagara Falls and Canada, and some great sights and restaurants. Glenn is a wonderful owner and is very helpful with places to eat, see and shop.

We would highly recommend this home we had such a wonderful time with our family

NIAGARA RIVER INN - ON THE RIVER - POOL & Hot Tub - Best Lodging & Location !
average rating of 4.8 based on 47 reviews

Clean, plenty of space, great yard for kids!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Niagara River Inn during our children's spring break from school. The Inn is very close to Niagara Falls. The drive is short, and the wait time to cross the border into Canada was only about 20 minutes on a Sunday morning and only about 2 minutes on a Tuesday afternoon. (We were told the wait times are much longer in summer months.) We stayed at the Inn with one other family, for a total of 4 adults, 3 kids. The property is great for getting your kids outside to play. They spent the majority of the time in the yard. They rolled down the hill (over and over again), played on the little sandy beach, found snails in the yard, watched the ducks swim by, warmed up at our fire pit in the evenings, and enjoyed the hot tub. There are plenty of TVs in the house, but our kids were more excited about being outside. I can imagine the place is even more exciting for kids when the pool opens up a little later in the season! We appreciated that everything we needed was there. We didn't have to pack linens, soap, paper towels, etc...Glenn, the owner, provides just about everything you need. He even provided a bottle of wine when we arrived. Great location close to the Falls, but also a great place to spend with your family to get away from screens and just enjoy time with each other outside.

The only recommendation for making the Inn even better is adding some additional rails to the upstairs balcony for safety. We just didn't allow the kids out there at all without an adult. That was fine with them, because they preferred to be out in the yard.

Thanksgiving in hometown

  • 5 of 5

The Niagara River Inn was the perfect place to stay! The house is spacious, clean and eclectic. The views of the Niagara beautiful. The beds comfortable. The kitchen equipped with everything needed. We came to join local family for Thanksgiving and hope to come back in summer to enjoy pool, views and site seeing at Niagara Falls and in Buffalo!

Great View - Great House

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family had a great time. 30 years of traveling and this is the best home we have stayed in. The view of the Niagara River is super, kids kept busy with the pool table and the foosball table and how can you not love a large in-ground pool and hot tub.

Sitting around the campfire with family and friends was my favorite. Great yard to play games, fish off the dock and then be so close to all the attractions in the area.

Glenn, the host, gave us advise and information but he also provides everything, even a bottle of wine. We had lots of fun. Highly recommend.

Nice Location!

  • 4 of 5

The location is the house's best asset. Niagara Falls, the area's wine region, and Buffalo are all easily accessible from the house. We made ample use of the pool and hot tub, and enjoyed the sound of crashing waves while relaxing on the upper deck.

We were a group of ten, eight adults and two children, and found the sleeping arrangements a bit lacking for eight adults. There was enough bed space, but not really comfortable sleeping conditions.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I do wish to mention that I include lots of information in my ad and in my rental contract. As advertised, I have 3 Bedrooms and photos show all rooms and bed space. We have bed space for a maximum of 10 as well as pac n play, high chair and foam mattress. I try to think of everything. -- I am aware that each group has different needs. All I can do is describe what I offer and encourage inquiries. ------- So, for anyone reading this, please do call or email anytime with any question you might have. And, during your stay, I am available 24/7 to assist in any way I can. - Thanks, Glenn
