  • Fabulous Upper East Side Treasure! You've Found the Perfect Place to Stay!

    "Charming Upper East Side neighborhood apartment with all the amenities. Well appointed space with modern kitchen and remodeled bathroom. Hardwood floors that shine and everything is just clean as a whistle. The neighborhood is quiet so you have a place to recharge after a terrific day about the city. Coffee shops, local pubs, grocery stores, and subway all just moments from the front door. Beds comfortable, sheets lovely, towels fresh and fluffy. Owner easy to work with and very professional. This is a treasure found!"

  • C&A

    "We just stayed at this wonderful property for one week for the senior world tennis championships. The location was wonderful - so close to all the venues, shopping, beaches restaurants. The house is very spacious and open, lots of sun on the back overlooking your own pool. All the amenities you would have at home were here. Loved having 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Thanks for the great response from Patrick and Lena, we hope to visit again soon."

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.
