  • Grand Niagara Falls house in January.

    "We arrived in early January to very cold weather (6 degrees F the first morning). The owner met us at the house late at night (our flights had been delayed due to a bad winter storm) and he had everything in the house perfectly prepared for us. We rented the entire house and were intrigued and amazed by the condition and beauty of this 101 year old arts and craft, historic home (fascinating history). My communication with the owner was always easy, swift, and clear. He made the rental process simple and reassuring. We were in Niagara Falls to attend a wedding (yes, in early January; thank you dear niece for the very frosty timing), and the house served us very well. In addition to the many room accommodations for our extended family, we also had some wedding food to prepare. The extensive kitchen implements were perfect for our cooking party. Many good conversations and songs ensued during the food preparation time (Aren't some of the best conversations for friends and family held in kitchens?). Our favorate house feature: the front living room with the great propane fireplace. (FYI, I lost at Scrabble, but the living room was still warming and friendly, so no excuse there.) Overall, we hearty recommend this wonderful old house for a weekend visit."

    "My wife and I spent 3 days/nights here and were extremely pleased! Everything is in the house for you, a full "things to do nearby" book personally put together by the owners certainly is a great touch. You will feel like its yours the moment you step inside, as Maureen has everything already figured out. The weather didn't cooperate 2 of the days, but we found our way to Niagara Falls about an hour away! Visited the wineries around, and sampled some great local wines. The outdoor deck by the lake, well there really is no description!! Had an AWESOME sunset one night!! As it was chilly, we left the windows open for that true "bungalow" feel. We highly recommend and will stay here again!!"

  • Great Experience

    "We have family in Western New York, so over the years we have stayed in various hotels and other vacation homes. This quaint cottage in Hanford Bay was the BEST experience we have had in our travels! The owners of the cottage are very kind and caring. They are gracious hosts who have invested a lot of time, thought and finances into providing a great environment for their guests. They maintain the property beautifully. The cottage is well-stocked with almost all the conveniences of home. I was thankful for their smart window choices that provided great airflow through the home, even when it rained. All the appliances were newer and worked well. The home was clean and pristine. I appreciated the mud room when we came back from the beach. We have children and the layout was ideal for our family of five. We never felt crowded. The location was perfect for our needs! We enjoyed the beach, playground and basketball courts. The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors are friendly. Yes, there are MANY trains! However, they are not bothersome. We found everything we needed nearby - groceries, gas, restaurants, deli, etc. Our hosts had provided wonderful resources on the area. It is our hope that we can go back to this cottage! It was the perfect getaway - a home away from home!"

Greater Niagara Travel Tips

Things to do From Niagara Vacation Rentals

The Niagara area of New York State offers a great mix of attractions with Niagara Falls, one of the natural wonders of the world, right on its doorstep. The area includes Silver Lake, Horseshoe Lake and the towns of Lyndonville, Niagara Falls and Wilson. Niagara Falls offers an easy border crossing into Canada to spend the day there. Walk or drive across Rainbow Bridge and enjoy all the attractions along the rim of Niagara Gorge. The other benefit of a vacation in Niagara is the opportunity to enjoy the rivers, forests and natural beauty of the area. It is the perfect choice for those who enjoy the outdoors or those looking for a quiet romantic break away from stressful everyday living. The nearby lakes provide endless activities, or you can just relax and chill out in your comfortable Niagara cabin.

Although most people are drawn to the area to see the magnificent Niagara Falls, the mighty Niagara River and its tributaries provide great entertainment too. Take a jet boat ride, cross the falls in a cage, walk beside the raging torrent on the boardwalk, or take a trip into the spray on the Maid of the Mist boats. There is a huge casino at Niagara Falls, Canada and plenty of other entertainment including museums, restaurants and theaters there. The Niagara area has excellent fishing at Olcott’s 18-mile Creek and Point Breeze’s Oak Orchard Creek. Walking in the area is very popular or you can just relax on the deck of your Niagara vacation rental and count the stars.

The Great Benefits of Staying in Niagara Vacation Homes

The area of Niagara is one of unrivalled natural beauty and the best way to enjoy the peace and quiet of this lovely area is by renting a cabin or vacation home. With your own space you can do as you please, without the need to vacate your room or attend breakfast at a certain time, as hotel guests inevitably must. Those with children will find the additional living space for playing and the separate bedrooms a boon. With your own vacation home, you can prepare home-cooked meals, maintain special diets and save money compared to dining out each evening. With comfortable sofas around a log fire, it is a true home-away-from-home to relax in.

Places to Visit Around Niagara Cabins

Lake Ontario is one of the treasures of this area. The lakefront area is a nature-lover’s paradise with deer and other wildlife in abundance. The lakes provide great opportunities for boating, fishing, kayaking, waterskiing and other water sports. A visit to the magnificent Niagara Falls is a must but visitors can also walk across Rainbow Bridge and enjoy a day in Niagara, Canada. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and attractions in the historic town. Remember to bring your passport if you intend to walk or drive across the border though!

Getting to Niagara, New York

Getting to Niagara by air is very easy as Buffalo Niagara Airport is just 20 miles from Niagara Falls. Another option is to use the Toronto Pearson International Airport in Canada and then drive the remaining 50 miles across the border.

Local Weather in New York State

The Niagara region of New York State has a humid continental climate which is affected a great deal by the nearby Great Lakes. Lake effect snow comes from Lake Erie and Lake Ontario as Niagara is located between the two. Summer temperatures reach 28 C (82 F) with occasional heat waves. From November to April, the temperatures are often well below freezing, with a total of 63 inches of snowfall.
