"Old Girl Scout moms and daughters invaded the Butterfield Cottage. We really enjoyed our stay. The view of Lake Ontario, first in the morning, throughout the day, and late at night was so peaceful and calming. We even had a flotilla of geese to send us off. The kitchen is wonderful. The kitchen tools we brought (Be Prepared) were not needed. It was a great midpoint for seeing Niagara-on-the-Lake, Canada, and for stealing my daughter from Rochester. We even had the opportunity to kayak. The cottage is very open, and encourages conversation. I don't think we ever turned on the TV. The weather was so nice, we even took a tour of the Milky Way. We appreciated the owners leaving suggestions for local eateries, and groceries, as well as nearby attractions. The owners also left a few novels and several puzzles, one of which my daughter wanted to borrow to finish. I highly recommend this locale for its lake view, serenity, charm, and peacefulness. It was exactly what we wanted."

"My family and I stayed for a short vacation to see our extended family before the kids have to go back to school. We have stayed at many rentals in the area, this one truly was by far the nicest we have stayed in. Alicia was a wonderful hostess. She gave us directions to grocery stores, recommended places for us to visit and where to eat. She told us the history of the house and how she grew up there and now lives there when she doesn't have guests. She brought her baby with her Jack and he was very sweet. Very, very shy but sweet. It's nice to hear that Alicia grew up there because you can definitely see her love for the house in the way that it is so well taken care of. I was really surprised at how close the house was to the Falls. We were able to leave our car at the house and walk to most places. Our first morning there Alicia stopped by with muffins and bagels and some hot coffee from a place called Tim Hortons. It was so yummy and I was glad because we didn't have to worry about breakfast and we could just get the kids ready and go out. The house was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. I joked with Alicia that she might have OCD because there was cleaning stuff in every bathroom and in the kitchen and everything was so well organised and well looked after. Just a word of caution. The house has a lot of vases and decorative stuff. Make sure you keep an eye on younger children. Its not a huge deal we just made a rule for our girls not to touch things on the shelves and you may have to move a couple of things out of reach. The garden outside is very beautiful. It has a kind of wild look to it but it is very nice. We were very pleased to see so many birds around the yard. Cardinals, blue jays, lots of humming birds and tons of butterflies. It was very magical and my daughter loved going out into the back yard (which is huge by the way) and looking at the butterflies. We even saw a couple of rabbits and 3 chipmunks. We were told not to feed them which is a good idea because they already seem a little to comfortable with people around. The chipmunks came and sat on the picnic table while we were sitting about 4 feet away around the fire pit. Probably the best feature of the house is the sound of the river can be heard and seen from the house. Even with the windows closed we could hear the sound of the river and see it a little bit through the trees. We will definitely choose to stay here again in the future and recommend it to our friends."
