  • Nice Family Vacation

    "The house had plenty of room for a mini family reunion. The elevator was convenient to have. It was conveniently located on the beach, close to a grocery store, and about a 10-15 drive to downtown St. Augustine. The views of the ocean and passing ships and the lighthouse in the distance were beautiful. The part of the beach the house is on was never crowded. The pool was a little smaller than we thought, but it was a good hangout to beat the summer heat. We did agree to allow some maintenance to be done during our stay. It turned out to be more of a construction project and it put a damper on the end of our stay. The whole yard was in disarray, alternate parking wasn't convenient, and the cable/internet was disconnected the last two days of our trip. We would consider staying here again, but not agree to any maintenance during our trip."

  • Returning again!!!!

    "My sisters and I returned to this Condo again for another week, we have used this same one for the last 3 years. It is so wonderful, everything is close by and convenient, store, lake and all the other beautiful things to enjoy in Tahoe. Everything you need is in the Condo, including a outdoor BBQ which we used a lot. The complex is quite and the air is so fresh. LOVE THIS PLACE, WILL RETURN NEXT YEAR!"

  • Home Again exceeded every expectation!

    "Home Again was exactly what we needed. First of all, the location could not be better. It was under 10 mins to get to everything we wanted to do. Grocery store, Alpine slide, Mountain biking to name a few. We also took advantage of the close walks to the hiking trails right out the back door! As for the house itself, the pictures do not do it justice. The rooms were comfortable, and had everything you could need. The kitchen was perfect for staying in a cooking. The patio was a perfect setting for dinner and breakfast. Could not be happier! We will absolutely be back! The owner Tammy was extremely accommodating and overall just a very nice person to talk to! Cant wait for next time."

  • Great home in Winter Park

    "We had a great time at the cabin! There was tons of room for our family of four to spread out - even more than we expected from the pictures and description. Very clean, comfortable, cozy and convenient to everything in Winter Park - both the town and ski area. Updates to the condo, the kitchen in particular, made cooking easy. We were buried in snow but it looks like this would be a great place for summer with the big deck and Vasquez Creek out back."

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.

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.
