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).

Wonderful home for relaxing in November!

  • 5 of 5

I've heard that Wilson is a great, happening place in summer so what about November? If you're looking for a fall or winter place where you can sit and watch the lake through big glass windows and just chill, this is the home for you. It is SO comfortable, from the leather sofa in the living room, to the dining room table with lake views, to the 3 comfy bedrooms, you can always find a spot to be alone or to gather with family and friends. We cooked Thanksgiving dinner (kitchen is fully equipped), visited Niagara Falls (the Canadian side - bring your passports) and went to an antique co-op. It was wonderful. Maybe next time we'll come back in summer!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The home is very spacious and well equipped. Weather permitting it offers a great view of the lake. Wilson itself is very small so it is necessary to drive to Lewiston or Youngstown for shopping. A toaster would be a good addition and a note for future guests to advise against using the microwave at the same time as the small oven as it trips the breaker each time.

Beautiful home and views on Lake Ontario

  • 5 of 5

We loved the 3 nights and days we stayed at this lakefront getaway. Only about 30 minutes from Niagara Falls. Also toured Old Fort Niagara. Great restaurants nearby. Took a drive up to see the Erie Canal. House had all the amenities one needs for an extended stay! Looking forward to returning in the future!

What wonderful accommodations & outstanding view!

  • 5 of 5

My sister, brother-in-law, myself, and husband enjoyed every minute in this vacation property. We would definitely recommend this property

to family and friends! It was very clean and provided all the necessary items for cooking and relaxation. We found it convenient to the Falls

and other attractions, but we liked the "small town" atmosphere of Wilson! The owner was especially helpful with information regarding

restaurants in area.

Beautiful Home with Scenic Lake View

  • 5 of 5

We had a convenient and comfortable stay at this home. This home has got all the amenities that a family would require to spend their stay happily. We were very amused to see the way this house was maintained, furnished and arranged. Kudos to the family for such a planned theme and organizing things in a very decent and attractive fashion. You name it you get it in this house. Surprised to see kids toys collections. Simply Wow!!!

My kids liked this house as much as they didn't wanted to leave the place.

Sincerely recommend to all families going there to pick this house. Convenient distance from state falls park, local stores, calm and pleasant neighborhood.

Lake house with awesome views and great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband needed to be in Buffalo and I came along to see Niagara Falls. I knew this house was a little farther from Buffalo and the falls than other houses I had looked at, but it was on the lake!! I was wondering if it was too far as I drove out, but the minute I saw the water, I knew I had booked the right house! Niagara was about a 15 minute drive, and every minute in the house felt like a vacation! I enjoyed coffee watching the boats go in and out from the close pier and a few nights the boat house restaurant ( which is almost across the street) had live music, which we enjoyed from our front porch!! It is also a great place to eat. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends!

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!
