Overview

About the property

Clean*, cozy cottage on the southern (NY) shore of Lake Ontario -enjoy gorgeous sunsets and a view of Toronto from the backyard. Close to Niagara Falls and Buffalo, too.

The cottage is fully and comfortably furnished and equipped for everything you'll need to enjoy your stay, whether it's for two nights or two weeks, including stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffee-maker, and linens/towels, kitchen paper products and laundry detergents. Updated kitchen, bamboo flooring in most rooms, ceiling fans in living room and two bedrooms. Additionally, there's free Wi-Fi, a TV, gas grill, and washer and dryer. Of special interest to fishermen, there's room to park your boat trailer - we're just a few miles from boat launches and marinas.

The cottage can sleep 5, with a double bed in bedroom 1, 2 single beds in bedroom 2, and 1 single in bedroom 3. All mattresses a less than a year old - and the sheets are new, too!

Great location between Wilson and Olcott , near Niagara Falls and Buffalo, Niagara County wine trail, Artpark concerts, and world-class fishing and boating. 30 minutes from bridge to Canada.

*How clean is "clean"? We may miss the occasional dust bunny (those things are sneaky!), but here's what we do between guests: wash ALL used bed lines, including mattress covers and blankets; clean and disinfect shower, toilet, sink, medicine cabinet and wash bath mat and towels; wipe out kitchen cabinets and fridge, stove and oven, microwave; wipe out dresser drawers; dust all furniture in bedrooms and living room; sweep and wash all floors; wipe/disinfect all door knobs; sweep back porch (we try to wash it, too, but that doesn't always happen). Periodically, we also wash the windows and dust the fan blades and whatever else we notice. My own house should be so clean!

Caveat emptor: We have had absolutely NO COMPLAINTS from ANYONE about any of these (or, frankly, about anything else!), but in the interests of full disclosure, here are some things we think you should know before you reserve. 1. You cannot access the lake shore from the property; we sit up on a bluff. You have limited lake views from the cottage itself; you need to walk out into the yard to really view the lake - but what a view! And you're welcome to bring some chairs or blankets out and lounge around out there to enjoy the sunset or the boats. 2. We live nearby on the property; we believe we're pretty unobtrusive, though, so hopefully you'll have all the privacy you want, while having the added advantage of a readily available source of local knowledge. 3. Our grandkids are sometimes over; we keep them penned up inside until a reasonable hour, then limit their activities near you - unless you have kids their ages; then they'll be sure to hang around where they're easily visible in hopes of having someone new to play with. That's all!

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Dawn and Paul's cottage for a week while in Lockport for business. We didn't mind the half-hour drive each day because it was so worth it to return to such a peaceful place after our business was done each day. The lawn overlooking Lake Ontario was our favorite spot. Inside the cottage we had absolutely everything we needed. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! Although we can't hope to provide the luxury experience some properties do, we do try very hard to provide a little bit more than you would expect for the cost. And we include the peace and quiet for free! We absolutely hope you will be back!

Very comfortable and well equipped property. Peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to relax. Owners very friendly and helpful. Location good for those happy to mosey around quiet local low key attractions and just soak up what a rural area has to offer. And of course a very easy 40 min drive to Niagara Falls. We loved it.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind review! We do our own cleaning, so it's always nice when someone notices! We know our cottage isn't one of VRBO's luxurious vacation villas, but we do aim for clean, comfortable and relaxing at a reasonable rental rate. Glad we delivered, and hope to see you back sometime! Dawn and Paul
