Good place for the family

  • 5 of 5

The house is located right on the lake. There are 2 showers and 3 bedrooms. There is an area with a futon for an extra place to sleep. The house is equipped with most things needed. Unless a previous guest leaves something behind, it appeared there is no soap or paper products. However, several people have left a few items behind for others. The wifi worked great. There is one TV, we didn’t see a DVD player. Overall, this was a nice place and big enough for our needs. The table sat 6, the couch I believe is 7’ and there are several other chairs that can be used. The gas grill worked well. There is telephone. The patio in the back is covered. The washer and dryer worked good. AT&T cell service worked at the house. There are a couple of small towns nearby for shopping. We were lucky enough to be in the area when fresh vegetables were in season.

better than advertised

with a new awning over the back deck, a fire pit near the lake with seats built there it was improved from the description. Wonderful quiet place.

Great weekend stay! We wish we would have more time. The house was set up perfectly for our family.

Beautiful house and the location was perfect for our trip to Niagara falls and Fort Niagara. We enjoyed sitting on the covered porch during the rain and then ending the night with a beautiful sunset and campfire. We will be back again next year!

Wilson Lake House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights in mid June to visit family in nearby Lewiston, NY. The house was as described and clean. We had a lot of fun BBQ'ing, hanging out on the lake and having campfires. The yard was previously treated for mosquitos, so pests and insects did not bother us at all when we were outside which was nice. Lake views and sunsets were beautiful.

The mattress in the master bedroom is a little on the firm side, but the beds in the other two rooms are a softer option. Water pressure in the showers was good! Overall, we would definitely stay again.
