Wonderful Vacation House on the Beach
What a lovely place, in a great community, and a great location right on the beach. Thank you for sharing your lovely vacation house with us!
Truly relaxing experience with the best lake view
The pictures don't lie. Exquisitely decorated clean home offers a great setting for a family gathering. This home is located among similar homes in a rural setting and it provided plenty of quality time.
Lovely lake home
The location provides a wonderful view of the water and the kitchen was very well equipped. Great for a family gathering.
Beautiful home, right on the water!
I have rented many VRBO properties, but this was by far the nicest, most immaculate home I’ve ever stayed in. Truly a wonderful experience in every way.
For people with any mobility issues, this would not be the best choice as there are many stairs to navigate. Also for people with very small children, there are really only two bedrooms on the same level. This is not a criticism by any means, as there are plenty of beautiful sleeping spaces in this home, but on all different levels, so just a consideration. Kitchen is really well stocked and the lovely screened in porch that overlooks the lake, was just perfect for morning coffee and evening star gazing. Owners were a pleasure to work with.
Great House on Lake Erie
We rented this house to be closer to the rowing regatta that we were attending
Location was great and house a fantastic to wind down after a long drive from city or a long day on the water at Regatta.
Very restful & peaceful location. House is beautiful. Owners very accommodating!
Perfect location for a great vacation. House sleeps 8 comfortably. No AC but lake breezes more than make up for it. Close to stores & Peace Bridge. My friends & family truly enjoyed this home.
Our cottage sits up on a hill overlooking Lake Erie. We have southern exposure. The view is amazing all year round. It is always changing. The sky and the water will be different every time you take a look. The beach is very nice, mostly sandy but the waves can bring in the most beautiful rocks and stones. Great for collecting or just admiring. The entry into the water is shallow. Great for swimming or water sports. You can also take a long walk on the beach in either direction, (be courteous of the other landowners along the lake – it is all private)
The private laneway to the cottage is also very beautiful. It varies with open farmland and forested areas, this makes for great walks as well. Or if you prefer to go for a bike ride, the access to the Friendship Trail (bike trail) is right up the road.
Whisky Run Golf Club is just a block away. It’s a lovely golf course known as the friendliest in the Niagara Region.
Downtown Port Colborne, only 5 minutes away has many quaint shops, bars and restaurants. On Friday mornings we have an amazing Farmers Market. There are numerous other events such as the Thursday night car show, Art Crawl, Canal days Festival, fishing tournaments and much more. Look up the City of Port Colborne for a list of events. Take a stroll along the canal on West st. where you can watch as ships pass through the Welland Canal and Lock System that links Lake Ontario to Lake Erie. A public boat launch is in town near H.H. Knoll Park.
Niagara Falls is a 30 minute drive and has many attractions, casinos, nature trails and parks. NOTL (Niagara on the Lake) is 45 minutes away and features many award winning wineries and craft breweries.
Ridgeway/Chrystal Beach is only 10 minutes away and also has many great restaurants as well as Brimstone, a Craft Brewery.
The Peace Bridge (Fort Erie/Buffalo) is a 20 minute drive.
