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.

Very nice home
A great home in a great location. The neighborhood is very peaceful. We enjoyed our stay very much.
Beautiful, peaceful and comfortable!
We greatly enjoyed our stay. The house is beautiful and well set up for guests. Beds are comfortable and rooms are generous in size. Nothing fancy, but nice and well kept. The lake is steps from the back porch and affords beautiful sunrise and sunset views. Hamlin Beach Park is ~15 minutes away and has a nice lake access beach. About 1.5 hours drive to Niagara Falls (Canadian side), but NO traffic till you get to the border. Owner was gracious to open up the house in a hurry for us and responded quickly to any questions.
We were there during a hot week and the house has no AC. It was a little too hot in the bedrooms, and a second window fan would have made a big difference. Nevertheless, we had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The local community is very rural, mostly farmers, and people still wave at you when you drive by!
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
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
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.
