  • Basement apartment

    "We had a wonderful stay. The owners were very gracious hosts and everything was just as they promised. We walked to the falls each day along the river path through the park,beautiful. We had two small children and they were able to handle the walking distance. An easy drive about 5 minutes away provided restaurants and a grocery store. We optioned to cook breakfast and eat diner out, but everything we needed was provided. I didn't notice a grill and the entrance kinda feels like your are going down an alleyway, but overall an awesome place to stay!"

  • Could not ask for more!

    "We are getting ready to leave this property tomorrow and could not do so without writing a review. We rented David's Silver Lake home for the month of August, as I grew up in Buffalo and wanted to visit with family and friends. Two weeks before our arrival, I fell and broke my leg in 3 places. I emailed David and asked about handicap accessibility. He wrote back almost immediately and said he was going to have a ramp built, so I would be able to get into the house easily! Now that is above and beyond! And now the house has a ramp, in case a future guest needs it. :o). Esther, the caretaker, met us at the house and gave us the grand tour, including the private dock and side-yard area. This house has a huge front yard and access to an even bigger second lot next door- perfect for outdoor games..and a firepit(wood included) for s'mores and family sing-a-longs. The house is large and truly room for 10 to sleep comfortably. We have rented several vacation rentals and have never seen a kitchen so well equipped! Every possible dish, pan, glass is available, plus extras like a crockpot and storage containers. As mentioned in previous reviews, gorgeous Letchworth State Park is just a short drive away. We didn't get to hike, with my injury, but our daughter did and is coming back to camp there. We were totally impressed with the Charcoal Coral at the corner, an easy walk without a broken leg. Almost always packed...plan to go in between busy times. Specials most nights and entertainment too. If you like pasta, don't miss the Pasta Buffet on Wednesday night! We went twice! Family enjoyed the mini-golf. We did not make it to the twin drive-ins, but they show first-run movies, one drive-in more for kids and one for adults. We also really liked Daryl's Pizza and Wings, a short drive away. We recommend this wonderful retreat whole-heartedly and hope to return. It is quiet and peaceful...a great place to unwind!"

  • Our 2nd stay just as nice as the 1st!

    "My husband and I stayed at Joe's house to spend the long Columbus Day weekend with our son, who attends college nearby. This was our 2nd stay at this warm and inviting cottage, and it felt like we were coming home again! Loved it the first time; loved it again. Joe is quick to respond to inquiries and is a most accommodating host whose main concern is making sure his guests are happy and comfortable. The house is within walking distance to beautiful Wilson-Tuscarora State Park and a short driving distance to many other areas of interest. Be sure to check out Olcott Beach ~ a quaint, charming, and pet-friendly town on Lake Ontario. We were fortunate to have glorious fall weather, and enjoyed using the fire pit one evening. The stars looked close enough to reach out and touch! Joe's home in Wilson is clean and well-equipped, and in a quiet, safe neighborhood. Most definitely recommend! Thanks, Joe!"

  • Left us good memories!

    "Annual family reunion with grandparents and teenagers. An old house but surprisingly everyone found their way to enjoy. Never expect a board game can have so much fun. The dancing wii game made us go to buy one after back home. Relaxing in the pool with the wonderful view was unforgettable. Doggy friends are bonus, they were so friendly, wish can spend more time to play with them. Sunrise was so amazing while our stay. Location is very good to the state park. Drive-in movie was a bonus too. Kitchen need a better stir fry pan. And wish have a hair dryer there, we forgot to bring one. Oh, beds are so comfortable like home. This farm house is wonderful."

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.
