About the Property

Fall is here and you won't find a better home that our waterfront property

*Please note :we only accept checks and PayPal. No credit cards.
This a very special home built in 1888 as a summer residence for the family of a well known Buffalonian.
Beautiful lawns spread across almost an acre of land. Awake to the sunrise shimmering over the river. Enjoy secluded picnics and bon fires on your own property at the rivers edge, on our property just across the street. Bring your fishing gear to fish off the dock.
View the Niagara River from the veranda or the hot tub!
As was the trend in the late 1800's, wealthy families would summer on Grand Island, located between Buffalo and Niagara Falls, NY. There were resorts and clubs to cater to these families. There were also a number of private homes built. Our Home on Riversedge was one of them.

We will provide a unique and memorable experience for you. Something for all ages. Definately child friendly. Reserve your spot today!
Our home is situated just across the street from the Niagara River and has 4/5 bedrooms with 2 full bathrooms with tubs and showers.

One bath is on the first floor, the other on the second.

We have a lovely parlor where you might choose to relax and read or visit. Maybe a game of chess or checkers will help you pass the time. We supply lots of books and games for the family to enjoy.

The formal dining room will make your special occasions truly remarkable!

Our state of the art country kitchen provides the perfect gathering place for the family. Custom concrete countertops, hardwood floors and a spacious breakfast bar provides for the best way to start the day during your exciting Niagara stay!

Our family room is quite large and features a large HD flat screen TV. You won't believe the panoramic views of the river to the front and the woods behind this very private residence!
There are flat screen TV's in the 3 upstairs bedrooms.
Our 5 th bedroom is on the first floor. It is used as a den when not needed as a bedroom.

We have lots of books and games as well as bicycles and outdoor activities for your enjoyment. There is an air hockey game on the lower level. An Ipod dock will let you fill the home with all your favorite tunes.
The hot tub is located in a private gazebo off of the patio.

This one of a kind property combines history, comfort and elegance.
Restaurants from fine dining to fast food right here on Grand Island as well as a large grocery store, banks, pharmacies and so much more.
Year round swimming pool just a mile down the road at the Radisson( Only $5 per day)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We have always had an interest in history and older homes. When this house became available we were able to see past the years of neglect . It is an amazing home with 3 floors and is situated on 190 feet of waterfront at the waters edge. It is truly a unique family spot. So much to see and do for every member of the family. 2013 is our first year, and so far all of our guests have been extremely complimentary about their stay at our Home on River's Edge. We look forward to making yourstay the most memorable yet!.

Why the Owner Chose Grand Island, NY, USA:
This home is rich in history and happens to be only 1/4 mile from our home so it was the perfect fit for us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You'll have a unique opportunity to stay in a somewhat rural community while being only 10-15 minutes from both Buffalo and Niagara Falls. No hustle and bustle here. You can actually hear the birds chirping.
