"Cute cottage but very small. Our family of 4 was fine but, when our 3 friends came to visit, it was way too small as there was no place for us all to sit and eat (in or out). Excellent location for access to the private beach. The backyard needs a lot of work as it is mostly dirt and weeds and the fence needs repair. Overall if the beach is why you are going there then this is the place."

"We spent 4 days here and had a wonderful time. The view of the lake is fantastic, the cottage is comfortable and had everything we needed, the neighbors are friendly and Lori and her husband are terrific! We would definitely stay there again and look forward to another trip north!"

"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."

"The apartment is very neat, clean and comfortable, and has all the amenities we needed (washer and dryer was very helpful). Also, it is conveniently located - just down the street from Goat Island (Cave of the Winds), Observation Tower, Maid of the Mist, and the Rainbow Bridge (for pedestrian crossing to Canada). We were a party of 2 adults and 2 teenage children (grandchildren), so the accommodations worked nicely (3 full-size beds).
As noted in one of the other reviews, the basement apartment doesn't have any direct views to the outdoors - windows are opaque. Also, the pictures accurately show that the beds are not in discreet bedrooms. The accommodation is like a long studio apartment, with two of the beds having curtain dividers, and the third being in the open. These characteristics were not a problem for us; we really enjoyed our stay here."
