About Nancy Savoy

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.

Why Nancy Savoy chose New York

We are excited to open up this very special home to our guests and know that you will enjoy the serene country setting.

What makes this cottage unique

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!

Highly recommend this property!

  • 5 of 5

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.

The Savoy home is so comfortable and homey !

  • 5 of 5

Mr and Mrs Savoy are awesome hosts being super attentive to our travels and have the response time of a lightning bolt ! They were understanding of our driving woes and still greeted us at the door at midnight ! Mr Savoy offered to help with luggage that late and gave a thorough explanation of places to see and things to do... the home is clean and set up for comfort ... you couldn't ask for more... the Savoys definitely take pride in this home and neighborhood ! Hopefully there will be a next time as this was the place where we were able to make my mothers dream come true of seeing the falls ...the home is SO CLOSE TO EVERYTHING ... location is perfect ... there's so much to say! Mr. Savoy offered to set up a bonfire.. the backyard is perfect for grilling and relaxing outside... the home is spacious and thoughtfully set up to accommodate our family of 8... beds were comfortable , lots of extra blankets , laundry room .... updated rooms ... wifi ... it is very evident they think of their guests ...we took heed to the map left with points of interest... you must try the Village Inn ... freshest food ever ... We hadn't planned on going to every state park but we did which resulted in memories we could cherish for the rest of time. thank you Mr and Mrs Savoy for having us! Best experience using this kind of vacation accommodation service ...

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Close to Niagara Falls and away from the crowds. beautiful surrounding. Excellent hosts. The house was comfortable. Everything was fantastic about this house. The kitchen had all the utensils, baths had towels and a great living room. You can even use the grill/camp fire outside if you are interested(our case it was raining).

we had a incident when on of the light bulb stopped work, when we informed Nancy & Tom, they came within 20 mins to fix it. We really like the way they host us.

We are really happy to have stayed here and we will stay here when we visit again.

Thanks Nancy & Tom

Awesome property

  • 5 of 5

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 :)
