  • Fall stay at Mt. Hood Lodge

    "My family just got home from a wonderful stay at the Mt. Hood Lodge. We had SO MUCH FUN! First off, the pictures of the view and property do not lie, it's gorgeous! The beds were comfy and we had all of the towels/kitchen supplies necessary for a good stay. While we spent a day exploring the town of Mt. Hood (and an Alpaca farm! ), my personal favorite memory will be the conversations we had while enjoying the view of the mountain. The property owners were quick to respond with inquires and questions, the process of renting was quick and easy (which I so appreciated)! You didn't have to worry about meeting someone at a specific time to check in which allowed us to not feel rushed. Great time, wonderful location!"

  • Pefect Getaway

    "This was the perfect getaway cabin for my husband and I. Loved everything about it. The location was perfect far enough away to know you were in the mountains but close enough to have an enjoyable drive to town. The pictures here give a very accurate description and the cabin was very clean and welcoming when we arrived. LOVED the hot tub and its location as it was private and relaxing on the deck overlooking the woods. It rained late in our stay and it was great to still enjoy the hot tub since it is covered on the deck to relax and listen to the rain. We will be back. I am already looking at some dates. The owners we VERY EASY to deal with. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us."

  • HIDDEN GEM

    "Great Escape from the busy city life. Beautifully decorated, very modern still has that relaxing, cozy warm feeling of a cabin. If you're like me and hate "country décor" this is the cabin for you. Description of cabin was very accurate. Great location, close to village and lakes. Cabin was very clean. Owner Steve is very nice, answered my questions in a promptly manor. Would recommend to anyone, and definitely will book again. Can't wait to visit again!"

  • Dias muy agradables

    "Fueron los que pasamos en la casa de Anick y Kenny. A pesar de que al principio sobre todo eran lluviosos, como la casa está muy bien acomodada con la piscina al lado, los chicos disfrutaron mucho. También es muy agradable estar tan cerca de la playa, y Tamarindo es un lugar que ofrece muchas alternativas para pasarlo bien. Muy recomendable!!!"

Lake Ontario Area Travel Tips

Getting to Lake Ontario Vacation Rentals

To get to Lake Ontario on the American side, the major travel hub is Rochester, New York which is located just inland of the southernmost point of the lake. Rochester has a national airport which receives domestic flights from most major cities on the East Coast and Great Lakes areas. The largest major city near Ontario is Buffalo which is located on the shore of the nearby Lake Erie. Buffalo is within easy driving distance from most parts of Lake Erie's southern shoreline. If traveling from overseas, you may consider flying into New York City or Philadelphia. Both cities are within a day's driving distance from Lake Ontario. Alternatively, you can also fly into Toronto with is on the northern Canadian lakeshore and from there, get a regional flight to Buffalo.

Seasons to Visit Lake Ontario Cottages

If you want to enjoy water sports and long leisurely walks then summertime is the season for you to visit Lake Ontario. There are many boat launches, marinas and picnic sites where you can enjoy a day out with the family. During the warm summer days, many visitors can be seen out on the water as they enjoy their favorite sports. This is traditionally the busiest time of year and the peak season is during the months of June and July. If you want to avoid the crowds, choose a travel time earlier or later in the summer season. May and September still enjoy mild temperatures. Lake Ontario is transformed into a snowy winter wonderland by November and December. While the lake sees fewer visitors than in the warmer summer months, for many people this is their preferred season to travel. Many parts of the lake ice over, providing ice skating, sledding and snowmobile trails. Cross country skiing trails wind their way around the lakeshore as well.

Activities and Attractions near Lake Ontario Cabins

On a warm summer day, you can see sailing craft billow their colorful sails and motorboats speeding over the lake. Wake boarding and Jet skiing are other favorite activities on Lake Ontario. Throughout the year, fishing is a popular sport. In the summer months, fishermen line the shores and can be seen bobbing in their boats in deeper waters. In the icy winter months, the frozen lake is dotted with ice fishing cabins. Other popular winter activities include cross country skiing, snowmobiling and sledding.

Within easy driving distance from most rental homes on Lake Ontario's southern shoreline is the impressive natural phenomenon of the Niagara Falls. This powerful and cascading waterfall is one of North America's most visited tourist attractions. It is not only the falls that are impressive. The city of Niagara Falls has become an entertainment wonderland. There are theme parks, amusement parks, casinos and all kinds of entertainment available. You can cruise below the falls on a paddle steamer, walk underneath the falls or view it from above on a helicopter or microlight flight. There are many fun activities to be enjoyed and it is a great destination for all ages.
