Overview

About the property

A 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home with on-site Parking and Fenced in Backyard

Located in a lovely area of Niagara Falls, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath house is located only 3.3 miles from Niagara Falls State Park.

The master bedroom with attached bath is located on the first floor and has a queen bed. The other two bedrooms are located on the second floor. One of the rooms has a queen bed with a small sitting room attached that has a daybed for an extra guest. The other bedroom has a double bed. The other full bathroom is on the second floor.

On the first floor in addition to the master bedroom, is the kitchen, living room and dining room, and back hallway that leads to a screened in porch and the back yard.

The house is in the Deveaux area of Niagara Falls, a beautiful residential neighborhood, situated near Niagara University. The house is a 10-minute walk to the Whirlpool and Devil’s Hole State Parks and a 10 min. drive or 20 min. bike ride along the Gorge to the Niagara Falls State Park. Lewiston is also a short drive up the parkway and has many cute shops and nice restaurants.

The house is most easily accessed by car but the NFTA buses do run along Lewiston Road which is on the corner and goes to either Lewiston or to Niagara Falls.

The house has wi-fi throughout. There is a SmartTV and DVD player in the master bedroom, but there is no cable (we do have an interior antenna for broadcast channels). There is a driveway for you to use to park your vehicle. Pets will be considered.

About Carroll Reetz

We are avid travelers and running this guesthouse allows us some freedom in the off season to do just that. Carroll spent most of her career in Human Resources but gave it all up (darn) several years ago to open a hostel in Niagara Falls- leaving the wonderful California weather behind but gaining a wonderful husband. Andre is from Germany and we found each other here! We have since expanded from the hostel and added a couple vacation rentals to our endeavors. We think they are a great alternative to a sterile hostel - more like home away from home. We love hosting visitors from all over the world and introducing them to not only the beauty of Niagara Falls but the uniqueness and history that surrounds us.

Carroll Reetz purchased this house in 2012

Why Carroll Reetz chose Niagara Falls

The Whirlpool Cottage is in the nicest area of Niagara Falls where visitors can feel relaxed and secure in their home away from home.

We are fully permitted and certified by the City of Niagara Falls that we meet all building and fire codes required to operate a vacation rental. Many listings in Niagara Falls are not legal, so be careful. Keep your family safe and be sure to book with those operators that can show you their permit and certificate of occupancy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was really nice to stay here. The canape is lovely and the location is perfect for the visit to the Falls. We would love to spend here more time. Thank you.

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We felt right at home in this quaint, comfortable cottage. It was clean and was furnished with everything we needed during our stay. The location was convenient to Niagara Falls and other local attractions. The owners were very responsive and answered all our questions. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks, Carroll and Andre!

Awesome weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The house was very welcoming and there was plenty of room for all of us to relax and play games. The location is great because we were minutes from hiking trails and the falls.

Clean and a nice house in a quite neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay at the house. The house had everything and we felt at home. It was nice and clean and near to everything; tourist attractions, shopping and groceries.

The host, Carroll, was also very nice and quick to respond.

We would totally recommend it to anyone.

Thank you,

Dinny

Lovely Antique Home, with everything that you could want.

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful home, has everything that you could want. The location is minutes from Niagara Falls, and is close enough to go into Buffalo for sites, dinner, and drinks. Everything was clean and all of the linens were provided. Carroll was a few clicks away to answer any questions. Our group had a very comfortable place to stay, in this cozy home!

Great place to stay in Buffalo

  • 3 of 5

Close to all the attractions at Niagara Falls. Took me a while to figure out the streets but then it was smooth sailing. House was old but everything work well with no problems. Updated bathrooms, beds were comfortable. Never even cut the TV on !

Owner's Response: Glad this guest found the house comfortable and had no problems. We are unsure as to why just the 3 stars though since they found it a great place to stay.
