  • Lake:

    Lake Ontario is one of five large, connected, fresh-water glacial lakes in North America called the Great Lakes. Lake Ontario is the most eastern of the five and, because the lakes run from west to east, is the lake that receives the outflow last before the water flows via its outlet, the St. Lawrence River, into the Atlantic Ocean. Lake Ontario is directly connected to another Great Lake--Lake Erie--by its primary inlet, the Niagara River, which flows through the Niagara River Gorge and over Niagara Falls and Horseshoe Falls into Lake Ontario....moreless

Car: Recommended

Every year, thousands of tourists come to Rochester for the Lilac Festival in May. We also have numerous other local festivals including the Harbor fest, right at Ontario Lake Beach 5 minutes down the road from the cottage.

Fall has Apple Picking nearby and is a great time to enjoy a Romantic Getaway before winter. If you enjoy Cold weather activities, Ice Fishing and Ice Skating happen at the Lake, weather permitting. So there is always a lot going on in this area.

Contact us for more details, questions, or ideas on specific attractions happening when you are planning your trip.

About the owner: This is very much a family affair and this home is a labor of love. After a friend sold it to us in 2005, this house has been a side project and has been improved from the ground up. Everything in this house was done by family from the floors, decoration & complete creation of the concrete deck, driveway etc.This home is very close to our heart. We want other people to enjoy it as much as we have!
