Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner 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.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
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!
