About Kimberly Bolos

I grew up in a small neighboring town just outside Niagara Falls and left the area to attend and eventually graduate from SUNY Geneseo. I relocated to Dallas, TX for a career opportunity but have returned to the area every summer to take in its beauty and many local attractions. Now married with small children of my own, our family sought out and purchased this vacation property. While we reside in Dallas, local relatives manage this property.

Kimberly Bolos purchased this house in 2012

Why Kimberly Bolos chose Greater Niagara

We sought out this property because of its personal history with my family. It is the same property I would walk past with my dad on our way from the ice cream shop out to the end of the pier. We would wonder what it would be like to own and live in such a beautiful house with such a beautiful view. Western New York and this particular region hold so much natural beauty and provide so many affordable healthy activities that my husband and I want our children to share in these experiences. We share this home with you as a special place to vacation, reconnect with family and create special memories year after year.

What makes this house unique

The location is perfect! Coming from Dallas, TX it is wonderful to enter a relaxing small town atmosphere yet still have access to several activities, attractions, restaurants and shops as you would in a city. It is located across the street from a bustling boathouse, quaint upscale restaurant, and several small shops. Need some fresh vegetables? Drive down the road and stop at one of the many roadside stands whose farmers still accept payment by the honor system. We appreciate this home's proximity to Canada as well as the neighboring U.S. cities such as Lockport, Lewiston, Niagara Falls & Buffalo (quick access to Canada can be made via the Lewiston-Queenston Bridge).

Great Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 5 scrapbookers who come here twice a year for a weekend retreat to relax and scrapbook. The house has plenty of room for all of us and all our stuff plus the living area is a great size for setting up some folding tables. The house is always clean and well looked after and has all the supplies we need for cooking, BBQing and relaxing. We have been coming here for over two years now. We love it and will be back again!

Relaxation at its best!!!

  • 5 of 5

Kimberly was very easy to work with regarding the reservation, and our stay. The view is beautiful, and it was very relaxing. The house was perfect, and the only complaint I would have is that I did not have enough time to stay longer. The friends that did visit during the stay already are talking about trying to reserve this house for future stays. I would definitely want to rent this house again for future stays. I really appreciated the details Kimberly provided to us. It made the stay very easy, and comfortable.

Beautiful home with amazing lake views!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home had everything we needed and more! We stayed here while visiting Niagara Falls for a couple days. A much better choice than staying at a hotel near the Falls. The house comfortably fit two families (4 adults and 4 kids). It was immaculate, had a well stocked kitchen and fresh linens included.

We wish we had more time to spend there to enjoy the fire pit, go bike riding or just relax a bit more in the Adirondack chairs overlooking Lake Ontario.

We highly recommend staying here and hope to return for a longer stay in the future.

Western NY is full of fun activities and attractions for all ages! Niagara Falls, US and Niagara Falls, Canada are a must see. There are also several wineries & vineyard tours, farms, state parks, local festivals, and carnivals & outdoor concerts held regularly nearby and in town. This summer our family enjoyed: outdoor concerts, Herschell Carrousel Factory Museum w/several restored kid rides, Olcott Beach Carrousel Park w/several restored kid rides, Whirlpool Jet Boat Tours, walks/run along the lake shore, Splash Park in Krull County Park, Youngstown Firemen's Field Day (carnival, concerts, food!), campfires, and eating at our favorite eateries such as Viola's Submarines on Military Road in Niagara Falls after a day of shopping at the well known Niagara Factory Outlet Mall...and the list goes on!! Perhaps next summer we will charter a boat to do some Salmon fishing? The possibilities are endless!
