Car: Recommended

The cottage is only blocks up from the shore of Lake Erie and minutes from public beaches, and less than 30 minutes away from Niagara falls, the Shaw festival, Niagara wineries, Buffalo NY, Outlet shopping, and a number of world class golf courses - renting this cottage would be an ideal way to save accommodation money and still have access to the entire Canada/US Niagara region


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: We would love to have you stay at our cottage. As an artist i am often away from my lovely cottage and would love to share it with others. A great location, a simple comfortable space - great for summer but I also love it in the winter --- many artists, writers and visitors have graced the space with good vibes

Why the Owner Chose Niagara Falls:
The niagara region is rich with places to explore. This property slides into the landscape simply and gently. There are so many wonderful attractions within a short drive and the beach is walking distance.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Whether you’re planning to follow in Hemingway’s footsteps and need a bolt-hole in which to write the next Great American Novel or whether you just want to take the kids to the beach, Ridgeway Cottage is the ideal all-season getaway; surrounded by mature trees and close to the empty, sandy beaches of Lake Erie. Ridgeway Cottage is a 1940?s worker’s shack that, over the years, has become part of the landscape it inhabits. Two cozy bedrooms, an airy, light filled kitchen and a large living and dining room will comfortably accomodate four adults. A futon-sofa in the living room extends into another double bed. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots and pans, a stove, a large fridge and even a washer and dryer. For cool evenings, or in the colder seasons, there’s a cast iron gas stove for heat and comfort. An outdoor bathtub is ready to cool you down on long, hot summer days. The cottage, on the Canadian side of the boarder, is only fifteen minutes away from the Peace Bridge and Buffalo, N.Y. Niagara wine county, the Shaw Festival, Niagara on the Lake, and Niagara Falls are less than a half hour’s drive away. The Trans Canada Bike Trail runs by 500 yards from the cottage, allowing you to ride all the way to Niagara Falls and beyond.
