Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Full Bath, Sleeps 6

In the local area, we were the first to list our property on this site, and have the most years of rental experience. We have been satisfying our guests since 2008!

Situated directly on stunning Lake Ontario, this vacation cottage lets you get away from it all! Enjoy quiet, relaxing days taking in the view or bring your boat and launch it from a local launching site and enjoy spending the day on the lake. If you are up for a land outing, adventure to Niagara Falls or see the Lockport Locks and hop on an Erie Canal Cruise. Take a tour at a local orchard or farm, or spend some time on the Niagara Wine Trail.

The property is situated on 150' of direct waterfront. The water is not deep near the shore, and is clear and warm. There is a well-maintained fire pit that can host evening bon fires and memory-making conversations. The inside is spacious! There is a beautiful fireplace made from Lake Ontario stones. There is an LCD tv (125 channels), & wireless internet access for those who can't quite leave the city behind.

We are always updating the property to make sure it meets your needs. The bathroom is brand new, as well as new stainless steel kitchen appliances.

Please feel free to email if you have any additional questions. We'll be happy to help you- we aim to please!

*Please note, Lake Ontario water levels are at record levels this year, and this has been causing some damage to the coastline. If you plan on spending time on the lake, please consult local conditions before doing so.

About Andrea

I grew up in the local area and remember many childhood outings to Lake Ontario. As an adult, my full-time residence is now in Seattle, WA, but my entire family still lives in Western NY, so we are there often visiting family and friends.

Andrea purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Andrea chose Lake Ontario

This property is really special, and we jumped at the chance to purchase it when it became available. The lot is quite large, and has sweeping views of Lake Ontario. The fireplace was made from stones from the lake- it's incredible. We love everything about this place!

What makes this cottage unique

When I'm here, I feel connected to nature, and disconnected from the hustle and bustle of every day life. I spend many hours in the "sky chairs" that hang from the trees. It's a great place to take in the views, nap, read a book, or browse on my iPad. The outdoor fire pit is a fan favorite- many a great campfire story has been told here. It's just a great place for everyone to come together and feel totally comfortable.
