About Mary Gianfagna

My husband and I have 2 daughters and a dog, a boxer. The girls were very young when we purchased this house. We have enjoyed making many memories here.

Mary Gianfagna purchased this house in 2005

Why Mary Gianfagna chose Fort Erie

We loved the casual relaxed atmosphere of the house and being in Canada. Being from Buffalo NY it is an easy commute. Its a very quiet, comfortable place to enjoy and lets you get away from your daily routine.

What makes this house unique

We are 10 minutes from the Peace Bridge. Very accessible to Buffalo.

Comfortable and relaxing home on the lake

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this beautiful property. The home itself is spacious and nicely appointed, and for us, best of all, it is pet friendly so our fur baby can travel with us. The location is really spectacular - right on Lake Erie with a huge sandy beach. The owner is so easy to work with and is always interested in ensuring that you are comfortable and that everything at the property is in perfect condition. Cannot not recommend this property highly enough. Thanks so much for your hospitality, Mary! We will definitely be back.

Windmill Point Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed at this wonderful beach house, and we will definitely return. The owners do a magnificent job of making us feel as though we have come into our own home. It is well appointed with everything you need for your stay. The owners have thought of everything! The house has a huge sand beach and a wonderful view. It is close to restaurants and shopping in Crystal Beach, Ridgeway, and Fort Erie, and Niagara Falls is a short distance away. We love to play golf and there are numerous golf courses within an hour. Lots of information about these and other area activities are provided at the house. We love the peaceful beauty of sitting out on the deck or patios and having only the Lake in front of us while enjoying the resident wildlife - foxes, hawks, owls, chipmunks, etc. It really is a great retreat from our busy lives.

Peaceful and lovely beach getaway

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was as advertised. It came very well equipped with all the amenities in the kitchen, laundry and bathrooms. The cottage was very clean upon arrival and is well maintained. The owner was very attentive and helpful both before and during the rental. We were welcomed with flowers and a bottle of wine upon arrival and were given information about the use of the cottage as well as local shopping and attractions. We had family up for day visits and definitely would recommend this cottage for rental in the future.

As we already were familiar with the area, we were most interested in a peaceful and quiet getaway rather than touring around. The cottage was VERY comfortable inside and out, the quality of the amenities were the best we've experienced and it seemed to have everything we needed in easy reach. The cottage has a terrific beach, lots of room around it so you do not feel crowded in around the neighbouring properties and is close to shopping and access to the USA via the Peace bridge. The Sobey's grocery store in Fort Erie was the most friendly and helpful store we have ever had the pleasure to shop in. We fully recommend that as a stop for groceries. We certainly recommend this cottage if you are looking for a nice getaway! The only reason this did not get 5 stars is due to the algae on the beach. this had nothing to do with the cottage, but mother nature. Very hot and humid weather for the season limited direct access to the water from the cottage's waterfront, but both Crystal Beach and Waverly Beach were very close and groomed for the beach and sand lovers. So for us really 4.5 stars.

Beachside

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 10 days in June 2016. It was lovely! The property is a private beachfront split-level home and is located at the end of a road with a few other beachside houses, one of which is also being rented. The house shares plenty of beach and shoreline with two others nearby and also has a substantial front yard that can be used to kick around a soccer ball. The interior is well-decorated and the kitchen is well-stocked with cooking supplies and herbs and spices—the stove is natural gas. The beach was plowed the day we arrived, which cleaned the area considerably. We were lucky to experience no bugs, though some of the shoreline was marred by old algae. Everything worked great, including the WiFi! Thanks so much.

Secluded beach retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this lovely and well-appointed beach house for two weeks. We left reluctantly and felt as if the house had become home. That feeling was due to the detail and thought the owners had put into the house to make our stay so comfortable. The house, with beautiful sand beach on Lake Erie, has a splendid view of the Buffalo skyline, and though you feel secluded, you are not far from Niagara Falls, the wineries, and Niagara on the Lake. The area is full of the history of the French and Indian War and the War of 1812 and we enjoyed exploring the battlefields, forts, and historic homes in the area. We are also golfers and there are some beautiful courses close by. We look forward to coming back again next year.
