Fall and Winter offer opportunities to enjoy the outdoors or cozy up to a fire inside.
As was the trend in the late 1800's, wealthy families would summer on Grand Island, located between Buffalo and Niagara Falls, NY. There were resorts and clubs to cater to these families. There were also a number of private homes built. Our Home on Riversedge was one of them.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We have always had an interest in history and older homes. When this house became available we were able to see past the years of neglect . It is an amazing home with 3 floors and is situated on 190 feet of waterfront at the waters edge. It is truly a unique family spot. So much to see and do for every member of the family. 2013 is our first year, and so far all of our guests have been extremely complimentary about their stay at our Home on River's Edge. We look forward to making yourstay the most memorable yet!.

Why the Owner Chose Grand Island:
This home is rich in history and happens to be only 1/4 mile from our home so it was the perfect fit for us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You'll have a unique opportunity to stay in a somewhat rural community while being only 10-15 minutes from both Buffalo and Niagara Falls. No hustle and bustle here. You can actually hear the birds chirping.
