About Tom Smolinski

We built this home in 2005 to enjoy weekends, we have a home outside of Buffalo, NY about 50 minutes away. Unfortunately we do not use it as much as we want, so we decided to rent our home, 2014 is this first year we have rented it out.

Tom Smolinski purchased this house in 2005

Why Tom Smolinski chose Ontario

We have visited this area our whole lives and always wanted waterfront property.

What makes this house unique

Private sand beach, close to many attractions, casinos, golf, biking, beach combing, petting zoos, marinas, restaurants, hammock under shade trees, fishing, all water sports.

Great house and beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the Labour day long weekend with a group of young families and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We hope to be able to come back again for another stay!

Wonderful home, perfect for large family get togethers, as we did for a weekend, and enjoyed the beach greatly, not to mention lovely patio and large living spaces. Thanks again, Tom!

Great Location; Not Great House

  • 2 of 5


Excellent location right on the lake. Lovely back patio with fire pit. Spacious house fit 8 adults and 6 kids no problem.


The house has various maintenenance issues: numerous water damage spots on walls, back screen door is very sticky, cobwebs everywhere on outside of screen door and front door, etc. (nature is nature but obviously no attempt had been made to clean). The floor also had not been well cleaned as both my kids' feet were black within 10 minutes of our arrival.

Though wifi was listed in this house's amenities, there was no wifi in the house when we arrived. Owner's response was that the router had been sent away to be fixed and he could do nothing about it. That was a significant issue for us as 4 different cellular plans had to incur the costs of adding international plans for our 4 day stay (we are from the U.S.). Owner declined to reimburse us. House has horrible cellular coverage. If an amenity is listed, it should be provided!

Owner did provide bath soap and a keurig coffee maker that was listed in amenities but was not in the house upon arrival.

Finally, check out procedures for this house indicate that all bedding and towels provided be laundered by guests prior to departure. That's fine, but the washer and dryer are small and older so we couldn't even get the first load of towels dried in the morning (started at 7 am). Owner did respond that the laundry did not have to be completed by us.

We won't be renting this house again.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

The house size was perfect for our family of 11. Plenty of room inside and out to enjoy our time there. The location for visiting the falls and surrounding area was great. The kids enjoyed the beach and water, paddle boarding, canoeing and body surfing.

Beautiful and spacious home with incredible view!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for 4 days with about 15 people. There was more than enough space for all, we had beautiful weather, and the kids had a ball. The house has pretty much everything you could ask for, including paddle boards, a canoe, etc. and a fully equipped kitchen. It suited us perfectly! I would definitely rent this house again and very much look forward to it. The owner of the home always got right back to me, whether by email or phone. The neighbors were so friendly, I felt like I never wanted to leave!! Also the view is absolutely stunning!! The sand is white and clean-we couldn't have asked for anything better! Thanks again!!

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this cottage over the weekend of New Years. Though it was cold, our experience was still excellent because the cottage is gorgeous to stay inside!!

Tom was very nice and quick with responses!

I'm looking forward to renting this cottage again! I can't wait to stay here over the summer time to enjoy the beach front!
