Waterfront House Overlooking The Might Niagara River

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,500 sq ft
Property type bungalow
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

3 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 8 Sleeeps


Quaint, comfortable, relaxing, charming…there is no end to the descriptors you can apply to the Niagara Vacations Property known as The Riverview. As the name implies, The Riverview offers visitors the best view of the Niagara River and the shimmering Buffalo skyline that sits across the water on the American side. It’s a rare vantage point unspoiled by large developments and crowded residential properties, which also makes it a great vacation getaway.

The Riverview is a clean, beautifully appointed and surprisingly spacious one-bedroom vacation property that can sleep six comfortably. The main bedroom provides all the privacy you need as host if you happen to be entertaining guests during your stay, along with a full-service kitchen for cooking and dining. The main living room is staged to give you a direct view of the mighty Niagara River, the perfect vista for quiet evenings enjoying a glass of Niagara wine or quiet conversation. Step outside and take a casual evening stroll along the riverside pathway that winds its way through the back yard; feeling safe and secure at night is part of the peace of mind you get with a vacation in Canada’s famous Niagara Region. Just minutes from downtown Fort Erie or a short drive to Crystal Beach, Niagara Falls or Niagara-on-the-Lake, the Riverview provides an excellent home base for a great vacation.

Wi-Fi access at the Riverview will come in handy when you’re looking to discover all the exceptional things the Niagara peninsula has to offer you during your vacation stay. Google “entertainment” and you’ll find flashy new casinos, world-class concert venues, internationally renowned theatre at the Shaw Festival, award-winning restaurants, live music, comedy and more. Places to play golf are as abundant in Niagara as the more than 70 wineries you’ll find along the region’s celebrated wine route, with courses featuring challenging designs and historic locations. Professional sports including NHL hockey (Buffalo Sabres and Toronto Maples Leafs), NBA basketball (Toronto Raptors), baseball (Toronto Blue Jays or Buffalo Bisons), lacrosse (Toronto Rock and Buffalo Bandits), pro football (Buffalo Bills, Hamilton TiCats, and Toronto Argonauts) and major league soccer (Toronto FC) are all within easy driving distance. So too are the many landmarks and iconic attractions that make up Niagara’s rich and historic tapestry.

Whether you want to spend all your time exploring the Canadian side, or venture across the nearby Peace Bridge to see what Western New York State has to offer, the Riverview provides the perfect location along with all the amenities you need for a relaxing getaway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I found your rental property on-line while planning a trip to Niagara. Your location was excellent, and the amenities were well kept. It was such a relief to find such an affordable vacation destination rather than staying in a traditional hotel. Will definitely be back

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This a wonderful home to stay at! There is plenty of room and a beautiful view of the Niagra River. This has been an unforgettable vacation for our family and having this home was like having a home away from home! The owner was hospitable and was available whenever we needed anything. The neighborhood was quiet and the neighbors were hospitable and helpful. We will definetly be back's time for a couple's retreat for my husband and I! :)

A great place, a great time!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were so lucky to find this rental. We wanted to see Niagara Falls but we didn't want to stay with all the tourists. This rental not only gave us so much space but also a perfect view and an amazing river walk (which we used every morning to walk our dog). Only a 20 min easy drive to the Falls! It was clean, cool, and comfortable. I highly recommend!
