About Jess Traver

We are very excited to offer our beautiful vacation home to guests. I am from Reno, Nevada my wife Jenn is from Buffalo. We are both military veterans and bought this house as a place for family, friends and guests to enjoy and appreciate the great area we live in. We currently live in Buffalo and love the area, especially the outdoors. We have three small children and want them to enjoy this home for many years to come.

Jess Traver purchased this house in 2012

Why Jess Traver chose Knapp Shores

We fell in love with this home at first sight. I was in Germany and my wife was deployed and we wanted a place where our family and friends could gather and build memories. Now that we live in the area we enjoy the home enjoy the home as much as we can and thought it would be great to find great guests that could enjoy it and all it has to offer as much as we do. The lake is beautiful during all year but especially during the spring, summer and fall. It offers picturesque living, great activies and beautiful sights.

What makes this house unique

With a home this beautiful if is difficult to find what you love the most. For everyting the outside has to offer, we also love the interior. This open concept home has beautiful details, we have spent the last 2 years adding our favorite pieces of art from our travels around the world and making it and inviting warm home. The soothing waves will put you at ease and can be heard throughout the home. Its easy to get to has mature trees and a fence protecting the property from the noise of the world around you. We fell in love and hope you will too. We would love for you to be our guest.

Relaxing Waterfront

  • 5 of 5

Didn't spend too much time in the home (spent most of the days on the river fly fishing), but so truly enjoyed the sounds of the waves against the shore. Caught a great lake sunrise one day and an amazing sunset the next. Definitely would recommend staying here!

Relaxing, restful stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a very restful long weekend. The house was light and bright with beautiful views of Lake Ontario from most rooms. We ate meals on the screened in porch and used the fire pit to roast hot dogs and marshmallows while we watched the sun set. A great vacation in a lovely home.

A very nice place

  • 4 of 5

I chose this place for two reasons, the lake and it looked lovely from the pictures. Upon arrival, the place is very nice inside, the outside could use some paint and yard work. Mother nature did some destruction all along the lake so when you see the beach in the picture, there is no access to the water anymore.

I called Jess a couple of times for various reasons and he was very prompt in getting back to me.

My high school gals spent the first 3 nights and then my gals from Albion came for the rest of the week. We had fun and enjoyed the peace and quiet.

I recommend this place to anyone who likes peace and quiet and a lovely home.

Great Lake Ontario Shore Cottage

Update and comfortable cottage with wonderful view of Lake Ontario. Excellent location as we needed something in between Rochester and Niagara Falls.

Wonderful and charming

  • 5 of 5

Two families met to stay at this lovely home near Kendall New York. The house itself was very clean, nicely furnished, and accommodated both families perfectly. The only minus (which had nothing to do with the house), was the currently flooded Lake Ontario, which complicated water access. It is a remote location, be advised that the nearest grocery store is about 15 miles away and takes about 25 minutes to drive each way. You can watch the sunrise on one side of the lake and watch the sun set on the other. Huge plus. Very private, located in a remote area, but even with that remoteness we still met several of the friendly neighbors that lived along this stretch. Grill had plenty of propane, so we were able to cook out a couple of times. Loved this place - even in August with high temperatures, the lake breezes kept it very comfortable at night.

Great location, beautiful view, lovely home!

  • 4 of 5

This was the perfect place for my in laws from Germany to stay for the week of our wedding. They enjoyed every moment of being there and want to come back again asap. Thank you for making them feel so at home and for providing them with a place to stay that was 1000x better and a fraction of the cost that a hotel would have been.
