About Carroll Reetz
Carroll spent most of her career in Human Resources but gave it all up (darn) 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 hotel - more like home away from home.
Carroll Reetz purchased this House in 2013
Why Carroll Reetz chose Downtown Niagara Falls
The Great Gorge Guesthouse is perfectly situated across from the Aquarium and a 10 minute walk to the tip of the Falls. We are located in the historic downtown area where most of the homes are over 100 years old. There's lots of history here as well as the incredible Niagara Falls. 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.

Lovely home which is suitable for a small group. Walking distance to the falls and aquarium is right around the corner which children will enjoy a lot.
Everything was just as stated! Location was great. The hostess was very accommodating. Would definitely stay at one of Carroll’s properties again.
We enjoyed everything about our trip!
So close to EVERYTHING related to Niagra Falls!
Such a cute and convenient neighborhood! We walked everywhere, saw all the sites and loved coming 'home' to our home-away-from-home :-)
Easy walk to falls and other sites
Our family stayed here for two nights and the location was perfect for walking to the falls and other sites. Carroll shared some nice tips for other area attractions that the family enjoyed. With three bedrooms and a comfy den, our family had plenty of space to spread out and relax. The home is accurately described, with the character and quirks of an older home. We would stay here again!
Nice house in close proximity to Falls
The house was very neat and clean and spacious and the owner Carroll was very helpful and very responsive any time I reached out to her. The only two things I can complain about are the coffee machine didn’t work and the area was not what we expected.
We checked on the coffee maker after checkout and found it to be working no problem. It may have been a case of operator error. Niagara Falls is a rust belt city and not a resort. It is often not what people expect which is why we try to be very clear in our description of the house and area. We highly recommend that people read listing descriptions thoroughly.
Location, location, location.
Nice older home, very close to the aquarium and discovery center. The neighborhood is older, but seemed very safe. Grocery and laundry was close. Good communication, had a great trip.
Besides the Niagara Falls State Park - the first state park in the county, there are many other things to see and do. Buffalo, is only 20 minutes away and Lake Ontario the same in the other direction.
