"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."

"Love this place!! My family and I have started a tradition of meeting here on all big holiday occasions. Thanksgiving was our first visit and then we booked again for Easter. WOW! It boasts an elevator for my elderly parents and most rooms have an en-suite bathroom. The kitchen is really well equipped and the dining room was perfect for our extended family of 13. Enough technology to keep the techies happy - TV's in most rooms and WiFi is included. It's really so quaint and comfortable. We love it! Walking distance to falls and aquarium as well as grocery and liquor stores. We took a short drive to Buffalo to see the Naval Military Museum where we could board a destroyer, a cruiser and a submarine. The kids loved it and truthfully so did the adults. Mark is great too -very accommodating and always appreciated. You won't be disappointed."

"It was really perfect, everything was like described, I did not find any problems, the owners are very nice. the house was more than perfect for 4 people, even you can find enough room for 6~8 people. the beach was nice, I swim there little bit, the water was nice! it was not that cold...the rooms were clean and quite... it was like a dream for me staying there, I will come back each year to this location, I feel I am couple years younger now! they had everything in the house, you just have to locate them, dishes, blankets, chairs, tools, even vacuum cleaner!etc. so really it was a joy staying there, getting up in the morning see the lake view and on nights see the sun set! really beautiful and peaceful.very good directions from the owner, close to supermarkets and restaurants, we visited the Niagara falls which is located 50 miles away, that was nice as well. I recommend you, no doubts to choose this place."

"My wife and I stayed at the Butterfield Cottage for 3 days recently and were very impressed.
After reading the reviews I had some ideas of what to expect and have my own feelings on the property after staying there.
The location is lovely and is really out of the way, the cabin itself is very nicely laid out and decorated to a very high standard with every amenity you could want for a stay, full kitchen with modern appliances and Wi-Fi if you want to stay connected, we used the grill a few times and its a little older but does the job very well indeed.
Very high level of cleanliness and we were provided with a lot of the basic essentials for our stay ( paper products, cleaning supplies etc ) and opted to stop at the store on the way up to get what we needed for the stay, and with that being said BE PREPARED !! Its approximately a 15 minute drive until you get to the nearest gas station / store and even longer if you need a supermarket etc, this isn't the kind of place you can just "run out" for some milk ( but I think that's the appeal for me ).
I read the reviews about the neighbors and didn't find a problem myself, they kept to themselves and we kept to ourselves and there really was no issue, with the amount of land you have access to there really is no need to wander on the other properties.
A couple of things to note based on our stay.
1: The view of the lake is awesome and we enjoyed the sunsets at the end of the day, however the lake gets COLD !! during our stay our weather app was showing high 70's to low 80's temp, however the reality is that was much lower where we were, we would sometimes see a 15 - 20 degree temperature drop from the town of Barker which is only 5 miles or so away !! Don't trust the weather app ....maybe in the middle of summer its different but we were here early May and found that to be the case.
2. Bring bug spray, I got eaten alive just sitting by the lake, but it was totally worth it for the view and the serene location !!
I was about to rate this 5 stars but had to knock a star off, the reason being is that early in the afternoon on our second day we were disturbed by two guys on the property on a ride-on lawnmower and a strimmer cleaning up the property I totally understand the need for it to be done but don't understand why that wasn't done in the days leading up to the stay or the day/s after.
Disturbed the peace we were looking for on that day and was a little irritating."
