The Lee's who owned and managed the rental could not have been more accommodating. The rental and the Lee's far surpassed our expectations."

  • Pound WI, Shawano WI, and Somers CT.

    "Our family of 6 adults and 1 child had a very roomy and clean home.Water is extremely clear, fishing was very good. Even had some to freeze and bring home. We enjoyed snorkeling, tubing, waterskiing, evening campfires (firewood is not provided like advertised) If your not turned off by a lot of steps,(47) to get to the water I would definitely recommend this beautiful rental. Nice dock to accommodate our pontoon and fishing boat and there is also a paddle boat there to use. Lots of handy items we did not expect also. Place does need to provide a better large frying pan though. And disposing of garbage can be a challenge given the times the dump station is open. Anyway, we had a fantastic time there!"

  • Great Cabin!

    "My family and I enjoyed this cabin so much! Beth was fantastic to work with and the cabin is super clean and fully stocked with everything you may need. The ride up to the cabin was amazing. (Beth recommends 4 wheel drive, and I totally agree!) Our daughters loved going up and down the mountain and the view from the cabin can't be put into words. It's private, peaceful and just perfect. Our stay at the cabin was one of our best vacation!"

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.
