About the property

6 Bedrooms, 4 1/2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 14

Once the main house of a sprawling summer estate, the beach house comes with the bonuses of a tennis court, huge pool and gymnasium, all right on the water. There are actually two houses but we use it as a single residence with one being more the day time house with an enormous kitchen that was originally staffed and a big living/dining room and observation tower. This house has just 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. It is connected to the gym that has a volleyball/badminton net as well as basketball hoops. It is a great thing for rainy days and night time play. There is also a good sized sauna in this house.

Right next to this is what we call the 'upstairs house', a classic mid-century home mostly on the second level over a three car garage. This house features a large living/dining room, a galley kitchen, an enormous second floor deck, 4 or 5 bedrooms and 3 baths. This house has walls of windows looking toward the lake, out over the tennis court and into the woods behind the house. It's a very unique place.

The oversized pool is adjacent to the tennis court and this all sits on a wide stretch of private beach from which sunsets may be best appreciated. It's a remarkable place to get away. For those who don't like to go cold turkey at the beach, we have WiFi and cable.

While I think of this as the ultimate beach experience, it is not a luxurious place. It was built at a time when the emphasis was on where you were, not what you had there. The living spaces are large but the bedrooms and baths are small and pretty original.

A new clay bocce court was installed this spring.

Wonderful Vacation Estate

  • 5 of 5

My extended family just returned from a vacation at this house. Everyone in the group loved it; from 74 year-old grandmom to the 2 1/2 year-old toddler.

The house is not fancy but the location and grounds are amazing. The views of the lake are gorgeous from many rooms and decks. We played tennis and swam every day either in the lake or the very large pool. We went on several kayak trips and enjoyed the stand-up paddle board. We hiked to Point Abino lighthouse several times. We also rented bikes and rode out to the Friendship trail. It's well located for visiting Niagara Falls and lots of other attractions in the area (next time).

The large kitchen made it easy to cook for 11 people. My husband, the designated vacation cook is missing the commercial stove with built-in griddle.

We are already planning a trip back next summer; the kids - both big and small can't wait to return.

Additional information about rental rates

Property Damage Protection $99

During the prime season, the place is only available for my version of a week, which consists of 6 nights. The rental week starts on Thursday at noon and ends on Wednesday at 10:00am. As an American with a dislike for bridge delays, I arrange it this way to reduce my, and my renter's exposure to long times spent at the border. Also, as an American, the rent is stated in US dollars.
Spring and fall rentals can be by the same term or as little as 3 nights. We will also rent off season but that is only the blue house with three functioning bedrooms and two baths. The rent at that time is $400/night with a minimum of three nights. Longer term rentals will result in lower rates.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
