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 Waterport

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.

Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Hi Lori,

First of all, I didn't see any improvement being needed. It was just perfect and beautiful!

When entering the house, we knew we had made the right decision to rent your home. The deck was fantastic overlooking the most scenic Lake Ontario.

We had a very relaxing and quiet week.

I would highly recommend your rental to a couple or small family wishing to spend some quiet time together.

Thank you so much.

Great cottage with a great view

  • 5 of 5


We spent a very enjoyable week at your cottage. It had everything we could ever need. The cottage was spotless and had a very easy flow to it I wish our home was a one story like yours. It was the perfect size and had the most incredible views.

We really enjoyed sitting on the deck, watching the activity on the lake and just enjoying the surroundings.

Thanks for renting your great little cottage to us.

It was like being at the ocean again. Very beautiful!
