About the property

Niagara Falls Area Lakefront Getaway - private yet close to everything!

Stay in the Niagara Falls Area on the grounds of a Western New York Land Conservancy - held easement and view a Ducks Unlimited-designed wildlife area. Located on the southern shore of Lake Ontario, this house is a nature-lover's paradise. Our cozy lakefront getaway features rustic barn wood walls, brick flooring, pine cabinets, and large windows to catch the breezes and although it looks antique, has all the modern conveniences.

Watch the vivid sunsets with views to Toronto from every room; catch a glimpse of the deer running along the tree line; fish off your own private pier; take a walk through the fields to the pond. Relax and de-stress in the quiet country air. Gaze at millions of stars at night.

For a little excitement, drive 40 minutes along the scenic lakeshore trail to one of the Seven Wonders of the World - Niagara Falls. See the sites; stop by a casino, or cross the bridge into Canada. This property is only minutes to Olcott's Eighteen Mile Creek and Point Breeze's Oak Orchard Creek fishing areas.

No Smoking, Pets OK on a case-by-case basis.

Comfortable and Welcoming Home

  • 5 of 5

When reading the previous reviews of this property, I wondered how any house could always receive 5 star ratings. Stay here and you'll understand. I'd give the home 6 stars if I could! We had 2 families stay here while clearing up our Dad's estate. The lodge became our sanctuary. We were able to begin each day with the sunrise shining through the trees and end each day with the breathtaking sunset over the lake. On clear nights we were able to see the lights from Toronto. The house is well maintained and spacious. We had enough room to spread out but most nights ended up together at the kitchen table reviewing our progress and planning the next day. It was so nice to have the gas fireplace. It took the chill out of the air each morning as we cooked breakfast. Several nights we grilled supper on the deck, where we had the choice to cook with either gas or charcoal. The house is fully stocked with everything you could need. Nothing has been overlooked by hosts Tom and Susan. Their hospitality is unmatched. Now that we have found this gem, we look forward to staying here again.

Five stars

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about our wonerful stay at the lakehouse. Tom and Susan are some of the friendliest people I've ever had the privilege of meeting. They always made sure we had everything we needed. We came to New York for my nieces wedding, and to get reconnected with my sisters and nieces and nephews. We were able to have everyone out at the lakehouse for cookouts, kayaking and just spending time together at this beautiful location. Everyone had so much fun and made many great memories. We will be back again for family reunions or just to relax.

Sincerly, Tracey

Great Stay - Right on the Lake with lots of Space

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous stay. The house is right on Lake Ontario and comfortable with lots of views. And we were treated to the full range of views conditions -- from 5-foot waves and high wind to totally flat water, and from storms to (mostly) beautiful sunshine. The 80-acre property was wonderful -- in addition to the very long water line, there was forest, abandoned orchards of apple, pear, and berries, meadows, and more, even a basketball court. The owners, Tom and Susan were also extremely helpful and hospitable.

An excellent base for our daughter's wedding week

  • 5 of 5

Step away from the hustle and bustle. The Lake House is a tranquil escape on the banks of Lake Ontario. Eight of us stayed here for a week for our daughter’s wedding. There are five comfortable bedrooms, two bathrooms with good showers, and a lovely, large, open living space and kitchen that worked brilliantly for entertaining. We held the wedding breakfast here on the Sunday for around 50 people, setting tables and chairs up outside overlooking the lake. All our guests thought it was wonderful – some went out canoeing and swimming, some went for a walk in the grounds, while others simply sat and enjoyed the views and the company. It made for a most enjoyable occasion. Our hosts, Tom and Susan, were very helpful. They provided us with a griddle, food warmers and waffle maker, and even cleaned the large porch of their own house for us to use should the weather not be so good. As it was, it was a sunny, warm day so everyone enjoyed sitting out by the lake. There was plenty of parking for all our guests.

Whether you’re looking for a peaceful getaway or, like us, want to host a special event, this lake house is the ideal location. Highly recommended!

Beautiful View and Private

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Lake. The view from the house was wonderful, and we enjoyed wandering around the 80 acres; which included a pond. The house is fully stocked; we cooked Thanksgiving dinner there. The owners were welcoming, gracious, and responsive; all the while respecting our privacy. Thanks for a fun time!
