About Lori Mietz

After staying at a friends cottage, we realized we wanted one of our own. We enjoyed the Niagara Wine Trail with friends and water activities with our children. My husband and I lived/met in Florida and love the water. We found staying on the lake to be as enjoyable as the ocean.

Lori Mietz purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Lori Mietz chose New York

We fell in love with this property as soon as we pulled in the driveway. Not only does it have unobstructed views of the lake, it is located in a desirable area where there are year-round residents, very quite and peaceful. We hope one day to make this our permanent residence. Until then, it is a wonderful place to unwind from the work week.

What makes this cottage unique

There are beautiful sunsets and sunrises. The Oak Orchard Marine State Park, which offers boat launch access into Oak Orchard River, is at the end of the road. The river is excellent for canoeing and kayaking or taking your boat onto Lake Ontario for world class fishing. There are charter fishing boats nearby.

Beautiful and very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Idle Days Haven (which is a very good name ). It was very Quiet and beautiful, the cottage is every thing we were hoping for. The view from the sliding doors of the lake is awesome and our dog Jade loved just looking out for hours.. We wanted some were to go to just lay back and do nothing and this was the place to go. They had everything in the cottage that we would of needed and then some.

Would we go back yes and we did have a chance to meet Lori & Rob they are a really nice couple (more then helpful). Thank you for letting us share your beautiful cottage and views of Lake Ontario.

Perfectly Named!

  • 5 of 5

It was even better this year than last, as we stayed 2 weeks instead of 1! The cottage was, as usual, clean and convenient and everything worked to perfection. We are already planing to return next year as well. I would recommend this property to anyone. The neighborhood is quiet and very private. The lake is beautiful.

Thanks for a great vacation.

House and property were beautiful and very well kept. Exactly like the listing. All the amenities I needed we're provided. The sunsets were Amazing! Just what I needed.

Owners were very nice and customer service was fantastic.

I didn't do much exploring, I needed peace and tranquility dealing with the loss of a loved one and this place definitely delivered. Did enjoy a couple of walks around the pond accros the street with my dog. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

Great get away cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent four nights in this cottage this summer and we absolutely loved this house. It is tastefully renovated and we were impressed by how clean the house was. In addition, the house is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The place has a nice living room and a comfortable outdoor porch for sitting and relaxing. Everything has been carefully thought of in order to make you feel at home. The cottage is fully equipped and has everything you could think of except a dishwasher. We also used the washer and dryer, they worked beautifully.

The closest sandy beach is 20 minutes away and unless it windy you don’t need to go anywhere and enjoy swimming right at the place. The closest grocery store (Wal-Mart super center) is 20 min away. Great place to watch sunrise and sunset!

The owner was very responsive and helpful when we had questions. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking for a quiet and comfortable escape.
