Newly renovated cottage situated in a quiet residential neighborhood , and just a 10 minute scenic drive to Niagara Falls. We are located on Grand Island, nestled in the Mighty Niagara River bordering the US/Canadian border. Buckhorn State Park is a 5 minute walk and offers a 3 mile nature trail that ends at a peninsula in the Niagara River with a view of the Mist from the Falls. Beaver Island State Park is a 15 minute drive and has a swimming beach and picnic areas. There is a local restaurant which is a 5 minute walk and offers a fabulous Western New York Fish Fry! The City of Buffalo is a 20 minute drive as well and offers a wealth of activities , live music and great restaurants. Whether you are looking to enjoy the great outdoors, see the Falls, enjoy the city or just kick back and relax, our cottage is ideal.
My husband Tom and I have lived on Grand Island for most of our lives. We know and love this area because of it's natural beauty and plentiful activities. Tom is a naturalist and sportsman who has been birding, fishing, boating and hunting the Niagara Region his entire life. I love to hike ,bike and run the many beautiful places on Grand Island and Niagara Falls.
We are excited to open up this very special home to our guests and know that you will enjoy the serene country setting.
Our home has the privacy of a quiet neighborhood while still being 10 mins from the Falls and 5 minutes from all the conveniences you need for a wonderful vacation.
Our home offers a quiet retreat after a long day of sightseeing. Grand Island is unique because it is surrounded by the Niagara River offering plentiful areas to enjoy the water. It is the perfect place to enjoy the Niagara area!
My family of 7 (including my husband and I, and both adult children and children under 10) stayed in this wonderful house. Nancy and Tom were a delight to work with and stayed in touch with us through the planning process. Tom met us at the house and gave us a warm welcome.
The house was very clean and well maintained. There was a map of Niagara Falls which he kindly reviewed with us and told us of other local things to do. Nancy informed us of some of the festivals going on that weekend which was appreciated. There was cheese and fruit awaiting us and even popsicles for the kids. These extra touches were very thoughtful.
They were very accomodating and very fair and thoughtful in their interactions.
This was the first time we have rented a house and they made the experience extremely positive and something I would do again without hesitation.
We built great memories at this house with our family, and this will go down as one of the best family vacations we have had. Thanks so much Tom and Nancy for contributing to a very memorable, enjoyable vacation.
Stayed here with family of 5 adults...loved it!!! Very clean, cozy, and comfortable. Felt very safe. Tom and Nancy were great to work with...Tom had a bonfire all ready for us. He gave us great suggestions on the area...knew all the local spots! Would definitely stay here again! Thank you Tom and Nancy for everything!!
Its a memorable stay and perfect home feel. My family and I really enjoyed two day's stay at this property. My personal favorite part of the home was the bed. It was very comfortable! Everything you needed to enjoy an affordable get-away was there. Kitchen, dining room, three bedrooms and a large living room allowed all of us to have our moments of quiet relaxation or enjoy time together. Nancy and Tom were especially welcoming and provided information and directions for anywhere you wanted to go and places you may not have known about too! In fact, my family wanted to stay one more day extra just to relax in this beautiful home, but could not as the home was already rented the next day. Hope you find your stay as pleasant as we did!
Nancy and Tom - I had stayed in Niagara before but this is the BEST home of all and I am positive we will come back for the next season :)
Our family spent three days in the house, and it was perfect for our needs. Everything was very clean and well cared for. The owners are very accommodating, thoughtful, and kind. The home is an easy 10 minute drive to the falls. A truly great family option; so much better than being crammed into a hotel room! 😄
My family and I absolutely loved this place. It was clean, comfortable, had plenty of room for 5 people (some of us doubled up), a quiet yard, and we simply couldn't have asked for better. The house is only a few minutes drive from Niagara Falls, so it was nice to come back to a peaceful area after being in the hustle and bustle of the touristy falls all day. The owner and her husband made sure we had everything we needed, including firewood for the fire pit in the back yard. We would definitely stay there again if we ever decide to visit the falls again.
Went to see the Bills Giants game. Enjoyed the walks and beautiful scenery of Grand Island and Buck Horn State Park. Enjoyed a cookout in the yard with family. Located centrally, short trip to Niagra Falls, Canada and Orchard Park. Thank you Nancy and Tom.
