About Tom & Deb Arlington

We are the local managers and co-owners of this property, along with our daughter and husband who live in FL. We take pride in offering a clean and pleasant place for vacationers to stay for short periods while visiting the WNY area. We are retired and spend any open time at the cottage making improvements or just relaxing!

Tom & Deb Arlington purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Tom & Deb Arlington chose New York

Good location for family/owners..but also for relaxing and view of lake, also proximity to area attractions.

What makes this cottage unique

Sunsets are amazing! Quiet and peaceful, and great in summer for swimming and water fun. Yard also a plus for family games and things like horseshoes etc. Fully furnished, just clothes and food to bring!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Even with a hurricane on the way we hate to leave...Thank you so much for opening your cottage to us. It was a much needed getaway, and this was PERFECT. Area has so much to offer, and we discovered most of it.

Niagara Falls was a sight to behold. Wineries are all chock full of great wines, and Amish country is an experience to remember. Got some amazing apple dumplings at bakery on Rt. 18!

You have an amazing place here.

Amazing A-Z Lazy

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with our stay at this comfortable cottage on the Lake! We found it to be a clean, quiet, beautifully situated house with wonderful views of the sunset over the lake. We will definitely plan on another visit! It is close enough to the Falls to be convenient. Close enough...but away from the busy-ness of the Falls area! We also spent a day in Lockport, NY, which was very interesting and fun. The cruise on the Erie Canal was great! It was a good vacation and we highly recommend A-Z Lazy Lakehouse!

Cute, cozy and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend, his 12 year old son, and I had an amazing stay at the A-Z Lazy Lake House. The remote setting allowed us to enjoy a truly peaceful getaway. Being directly on the lake provided us with incredible views of the sunset each day. Everything that you need is within 35-40 minutes from the house, and Niagara Falls is less than an hour away. We were also able to enjoy Toronto while there, which was about a 1.5 hour ride after crossing the Canadian border. I was able to find gluten-free dining options within 40 minutes of the house as well, which was a relief -- one of which I'd recommend is the New York Beer Project in Lockport. Overall, we had the best family vacation we've enjoyed in a very long time!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful little house on an even more beautiful lake. It is so well stocked, with everything you could need right down to a pizza cutter and tea kettle. Deb and Tom thought of everything! It is also in a great location to visit the gals,Buffalo and neighboring towns like Olcott and Lockport which have a lot to offer. Thank you again for letting us enjoy your little piece of heaven for 5 days!

Relaxing on Lake Ontario

  • 5 of 5

Had a very nice stay at AZ Lazy

Cottages is very comfortable and has just about everything you would need. Close to Niagara, but far enough away to give you the feeling you are out in the country.

Deb & Tom are very accessible and quick to respond in the event there is a problem.

We are looking forward to our stay next year.

Peaceful and Private

  • 4 of 5

There were other houses near this rental but they seen to be empty except weekends. Lake Ontario was lovely, so much more water than we usually see in our dry Texas. We even got rain while we were there. So lovely. Sunsets are beautiful, we would not know about sunrises, we did not get up before 6 AM. We had 4 adults, and two boys, 5 and 1. We were a little crowded with not quite enough storage space. I know the space is limited but a folding chair or two would help with eating arrangements especially when raining. We spent 8 days there which we enjoyed and visited sights in every direction. We had not visited western New York before and we found it was delightful compared to the rat race of New York City.

There were plenty of maps, brochures of place to visit, games, videos and cooking equipment. Bring your groceries with you especially if you are running late. At night the closest place is Medina for groceries.

It felt so peaceful and no noises of the city. We loved how it seem it like a private beach for just us.

Thank you for your peaceful place and it was fun exploring in all directions - west to Niagara Falls, Lockport, Old Fort Niagara, and Olcott for children rides, east to Rochester to more lighthouses, south east to Leroy Jello, Cooperstown baseball, Howard NY to wedding, and the grand canyon of the east.

It was fun and the people were very nice especially at the railroad museum.

I did not mark disabilities or handicap since the steps into the house (2 or 3) were steep and the house has no clear pathway to move through the house.
