Six bedroom with pool house on 4 acres on Lake Erie-20 minutes from Buffalo NY
About Richard Coley
Owner grew up on the shore of Lake Erie and across the Niagara River in Buffalo. Florida Resident since 1982, my family and friends have visited 'Canada' every summer and enjoyed the incredible amount of things to do while boating and swimming in crystal clear Lake Erie. When this home and property became available, we renovated kitchen, electric and plumbing while maintaining the beautiful hardwood floors throughout and the grand salon/living room with huge fireplaces at either end.
Richard Coley purchased this Estate in 2005
Why Richard Coley chose Fort Erie
Growing up, my good friend and his family lived here and we played football, slip and slide, go-carting, and many other fun activities. Our children and grandchildren have enjoyed staying here during summer breaks, but now everyone gets busy across the Country, so I decided to put it on VRBO so other families can discover this hidden gem of the Niagara Region of Canada.
What makes this Estate unique
We are close to Niagara Falls-23 miles and the Napa Valley of Canada-Niagara on the Lake. Niagara Falls has its Casinos, restaurants, and fun nightlife. We are 35 minutes from the Buffalo airport and 15 minutes into Downtown Buffalo with its great nightlife on Elmwood or Chippewa St. Mainly we enjoy entertaining right here on the huge lawn overlooking Lake Erie and the American Lakeshore, often with bonfires in our firepit almost every night. Great for kids and s-mores!

This property is lovely! We had a great time hanging out in the pool, sitting on the deck watching the lake, and having evening fires lakeside. We played lots of games in the huge yard. The upstairs of the house has a central wing, and 2 other wings each with 2 bedrooms which allows for privacy if desired. I love that it has 2 staircases! The neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. The owner is very responsive to communication. The house is well stocked with linens and towels. One word of advice......if the geese visit you chase them off or you will have a yard full of droppings. We had a very laid back, peaceful week in this house.
Comfortable and Cozy
Great home that is well appointed and equipped for big groups.
Enjoyed by all
From the very beginning our family found this property one that they would like. The bed rooms were spacious and there were a number of bathrooms. The kitchen was fully stocked with cooking utensils and enough plates and glasses for our entire crew. The dining table was circular and made the dining experience an enjoyable one. All members of our party talked about extending our stay, but work got in the way. In the future if our family has the need for lodging in Canada this property will be our first choice.
Everything was perfect - lots of thought went into making this vacation rental really comfortable for large family gatherings including all of the amenities necessary to enjoy the lake.
Could not be better!
This was the second time we spent a memorable family and friend reunion in this gorgeous estate. The place has everything a large group needs to enjoy a fun and relaxing vacation, and more. We were three families, a total of 12, and were as comfortable as it gets . The spaces in the house, the bedrooms and baths, are nicely separated to give a sense of privacy while all three families were actually living under the same roof (there is also a pool house which is actually a nice cozy space detached from the main house). The large round dining table, with exactly 12 seats, made every meal a happy get-togethering. With fireplaces indoor and outdoor, and a pool table there was no single moment of idle time; and for those of us yearning to be idle, plenty of cozy spots to enjoy. The heated pool outside was the cherry on top for the kids. This is a great place for large groups and the service that the owner provides makes it just awesome.
This vacation home far exceeded our expectations. The amenities encompassed activities for younger children, teenagers, and adults. We spent eight days,and no-one complained of boredom. Both the kids enjoyed bicycling, canoing, the pool, and playing softball in the huge backyard. My poodle got his daily exercise from chasing the foxes and rabbits that wandered over to the property. We had a birthday celebration for over 75 people and we did not feel cramped. The property is exactly the way the owner described it. We had numerous conversations around the huge dining table. Every guest gave this property rave reviews. We hope to make this home our permanent vacation spot in Ontario.
