Beautiful home, wonderful location!!
"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."

"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!"

"Great historical house! If you like and appreciate historical homes this one is nice. It was perfect for our group of 15. We were there for The Niagara Falls International Marathon. This house is located 20 mins from the finish line. Plenty of space for all of us to get away from each other or all be together. It was nice having TV's in every room. The kids loved that. The 5 kids in our group all said the best part of the trip was the house! The location is a short walk to the US falls, restaurants and attractions. A plus for our family and friends not doing the marathon. The house was clean and stocked with most things you'll need. Mark, the owner of the house was easy to get in touch with and very nice."

"We had a great time here. Property was ideal for kids and relaxation. House is well equipped with anything you could possibly need during your stay. We had a family of swans stop by for a visit. The kids loved going out and feeding them bread. We had a tree frog come down the chimney one morning and we got a real kick out of that experience. We took him and put him back outside. The neighbors are quiet and friendly. The only thing that kept me from giving the property 5 stars was how clean it was when we got there. The floors needed a thorough scrubbing and the place has cob webs and a lot of dusty corners. In all honesty, I'm a clean freak, so very few places I stay could live up to my expectations, but even my husband said something. I would also warn about the gnats this time of year. They were brutal at night. Keep the lights low and the doors closed unless you like cleaning up lots of little dead bugs every day. It's part of life on the lake. Try to make the best of it. The owner and her maintenance people are wonderful and I highly recommend this as a great vacation spot for a family with children. My kids were in heaven. The steps down into the lake were a real plus too. My kids loved swimming & playing in the lake and the large yard. We enjoyed nights by the fire pit and star gazing. The sunsets are gorgeous and so are the sunrises. Make sure you grocery shop before you settle in. The nearest grocery stores take a while to get to. There is a gas station/convenience store that sells beer near by, but it's expensive. Overall, we had a wonderful stay!"
