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 Wilson
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).

There was six of us travelling and the home was great, plenty of room, very spacious and clean. The view out back was gorgeous.
The only challenge we faced was only one tv in the living room none in the bedrooms, but we met the challenge head on! We really had a wonderful time in Wilson! Kimberly and her husband JR were very accessible when we needed them and didn't make us feel like we were bothering them at all. Just an overall great stay!!
The home is a lovely 1940s era home. It has been very well updated. We especially liked the notebook the owner created to give us all the details we needed for the home and the area.
Our stay was mid October so several area businesses were closed for the season but it was a beautiful time to be in the area. We don’t get to experience much fall weather in south Texas.
The only reason I give it four stars is that there is a waste water facility next door. It did not cause us any problems but it might if you are outside a lot.
We loved the home and the town.
Thank you for choosing our home! We are glad to hear you had a 5 star stay! We are proud to report that we have never had an issue with the location of the home. A restaurant is located directly across the street, in the harbor, and they have run a very successful business for many, many years. They even added a small Tiki Bar in the summer of 2018 (which is closer to the home) because so many folks frequent the area. Next door, which is the end of the street, is a harbor park which is included as part of the town's property. Folks fish and many families frequent to watch the sunset. We have never had any issues and would hate for someone to miss out on this wonderful community. It is great having the town as a neighbor because there is a lot of free, extra parking, and room for biking and rollerblading (our favorites). This is where both my daughter's learned to ride bikes. Thank you again for your kind review and for choosing our home.
Beautiful and relaxing!
This house was the perfect getaway! It’s got beautiful views, games to play, a fire pit outside on the lake and gas fireplace inside. The house was well stocked with supplies. The boat house restaurant across the street was very good! And the coffee shop Wilson Brew Company had delicious coffee and homemade bagels! Lastly, the owners of the house were great communicators and easy to work with. We would stay here again in a second!
So glad you had a great stay! Hope to have you again!
Enjoyable stay in Wilson!!
We enjoyed our stay at this property. The location was within 15-30 minutes from nearby attractions: Niagara Falls, Fort Niagara, Ontario, etc. The house was very clean, spacious, and the kitchen was equipped with all the necessities. Having a washer and dryer was definitely a plus. The area was very quiet and peaceful and the views of the lake were fabulous. We were able to enjoy some rest and relaxation after long days of touring. Kim and JR were very responsive to our needs and questions and were interested in making sure our stay was comfortable. Highly recommend the Wilson Boat House restaurant which is across the street for the Friday fish fry. The portions were generous and the food was delicious. There are many other options on the menu as well. Should we return to this area in the future we would stay here again.

Thank you for the kind review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay!
A Most Wonderful Stay
Location, Location, Location! This was such a great base for sightseeing around the Lake Ontario/Niagara Falls area. And at the end of our long days of riding and sightseeing, it was such a treat to come home to this little oasis on the lake. The view is spectacular and at night there is a wonderful little fire pit area to enjoy with a beer or glass of wine from one of the regions wineries. Kimberly was very easy to do business with, prompt with responses and the house was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. We also were very thankful that there was a fabulous restaurant across the street. The food was delicious and the staff so friendly. If ever traveling through this area in the future, we wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
Thank you for the kind review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay!
Beautiful location on Lake Ontario in Wilson, NY
Ideal for small family; 1 king, 1 queen, and a bunk room.
Thank you James. We appreciate that you have chosen our home and enjoyed your stay.
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!
