Property description

Ten minutes from the Peace Bridge, this cheerful family home has been lovingly been offered for summer rental. It is a great house for families to relax with their well behaved pets. The one-story house has a large comfortable screened-in porch decorated with white wicker furniture and a nice breeze. Dishwasher, washer, dryer, china, linens, towels, cooking utensils and appliances are all included to make your stay enjoyable. Wireless Internet if you need to work from home. Less than a 1/2 mile to the Friendship Trail bike path and Windmill Quarry.
If you're into in-depth swimming, a half mile mile away is the quarry at Windmill Point Park, a natural 12 acre spring fed quarry perfect for scubadiving, snorkeling and swimming. With water temperatures reaching 80˚F on hot summer days, the quarry’s waters are clear and temperate. A sandy beach, playground for kids, beach volleyball, paddle boats, and secret treasures are at the bottom of the quarry to snorkel or scuba dive. We will provide our tenants with a weekly pass which includes admission to the quarry for 2 adults and 4 children 17 years and younger. An additional $56.50 will be added to your guest fee for use of the pass.
We are forty-five minutes from Shaw Festival, Marineland, Two and a half hours from Shakespeare Festival in Stratford, Ontario, African Lion Safari. Easy drive to Niagara Falls, Buffalo, Toronto.

This house is 600 feet from the lake. It is not directly on the waterfront, but offers a lake view. This is a one story house but contains several steps. It is not accessible for installing ramps.

Owner info

About the owner: The cottage is owned and operated by four siblings who grew up there. Currently, we live in Buffalo, Rochester, Maryland, and Virginia. We will be staying nearby at our mother's house.

Why the Owner Chose Ridgeway, Fort Erie, ON, Canada:
Our parents built the house in 1968 and added on to it in the mid 1970s. We spent every summer in the house and have returned with our own children who have grown to love it. We have enjoyed great times there with family, friends, and pets.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This is a great house for families with kids or people looking for a get away weekend. It is far enough away from the other houses that there is some privacy and a large lawn with a swing set. The washer, dryer, and dishwasher are are great! It also has an internet connection, and air conditioner in part of the house. The master bathroom has a fabulous shower and heat lamp with a beautiful vanity. It has beautiful spaces where adults can entertain, and an informal area where kids can hang out. The doors and windows close tightly, therefore the house is not musty or moldy as some beach houses can get. The lake is calm and shallow which is great for kids, and it is far enough away that we don't have to worry about toddlers making it down to the water before we can catch up to them!
