  • Loved it!

    "This is such a beautiful place, and so well equipped! It was roomy enough to allow for our own privacy when needed. The only comment I have it that the guest bathroom off of the foyer is poorly lit, and the shower is weak. Otherwise, it was very well appointed and comfortable. I definitely would go back."

  • Great location and views of the beach

    "We had a great stay at this condo. The master bed was comfortable, the living space was clean and there was a nice little welcome basket with coffee and popcorn. The two reasons why I don't give it a 5 out of 5 is that the linens are not included (which they clearly stated up front), and the decor is a bit dated. However, for the price, it can't be beat. The owner and manager are nice and easy to work with. I will keep this place in mind if I go back to Wrightsville beach."

  • First Timers

    "Debbie and Eric, Thank you for providing us with such a blessing for our family vacation. We have visited the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area for years. This was our first time to stay at The Beach Club. Your unit was just perfect for our family. The location on the corner of the second floor of the Doral Unit provided inclusion but privacy. We never found the elevators to be crowded but if we had, the second floor was low enough that we could use the stairs. Your kitchen was more well-equipped than any condo we have ever rented. The layout was great for our family of seven. Your rental process was quick, efficient and cost-effective. Your club membership allowed us lots of perks. This is such a family friendly space and resort. We just can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this perfect week. I think you may have even ordered the weather for us! Loved it all!"

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.

Visitors to Lake Ontario

Lake Ontario has to be a favorite vacation destination for families. Aside from the lake, there are many great attractions for young and old alike.

Lake Ontario is a great destination to spend some quality time with the family. Wake up for early morning fishing expeditions and enjoy a late afternoon barbecue on the deck on your vacation home.
