About Carroll Reetz
We are avid travelers and running this guesthouse allows us some freedom in the off season to do just that. Carroll spent most of her career in Human Resources but gave it all up (darn) several years ago to open a hostel in Niagara Falls- leaving the wonderful California weather behind but gaining a wonderful husband. Andre is from Germany and we found each other here! We have since expanded from the hostel and added a couple vacation rentals to our endeavors. We think they are a great alternative to a sterile hostel - more like home away from home.
Carroll Reetz purchased this House in 2014
Why Carroll Reetz chose Niagara Falls
Over the last several years, we have purchased several homes and brought them back to life. When Andre saw this one on the market, we thought long and hard about it since it needed a lot of work. But could not let it go. It is a beautiful old home in a fabulous location near the Falls. This is an area undergoing revitalization and we are thrilled to be a part of it. We are fully permitted and certified by the City of Niagara Falls that we meet all building and fire codes required to operate a vacation rental. Many listings in Niagara Falls are not legal, so be careful. Keep your family safe and be sure to book with those operators that can show you their permit and certificate of occupancy.
What makes this House unique
The house is LARGE. It is our only house that will accommodate 8-12 people. There are 2 full and 1 half bath and two staircases (front and back). It is ideal for large families or reunions with friends. It is also a great place for preparing for a wedding at the Falls. Plenty of space for all.

Lovely home with a delightful balance of style and relaxation.
Carroll & Andre have created a most welcoming home. My family enjoyed everything from the open living room and dining room, right down to the children’s bed room and snow filled back yard. This rental is thoughtfully designed, in a beautiful location, and will surely call you back again and again.
Lots of space for my family
This was our second stay at The Mint for Thanksgiving. Enjoyed our stay just as much as the first time. The only issue we had was the leaking Keurig coffee maker, but hopefully that will be repaired for the next visiter's stay.
Amazing house and great hosts!
The house is amazing! The neighborhood appeared a little shady when we pulled up but we had no complaints our entire stay. The house itself is lovely. Much bigger than it appears from the street. There was plenty of room for the 8 adults that were staying with us. Everything we needed was available and if not Carroll was just a phone call away. So happy we chose to stay here!
We had an excellent stay.
This is the second time we are staying at The Mint. As always, we had good time. And we look forward to stay there again in future.
Loved every minute of it.
Perfect place to stay for a medium size family. Well kept. Will stay again
Great owner, available to respond quickly for any concerns / questions. Property was great and very well kept. The property made our whole niagara fall trip great... We felt at home outside our home.. Will prefer this over any other option in future too.
