I grew up in Lewiston and love this unique border town so steeped in rich history. Lewiston is a little hamlet very close to Niagara Falls and was burned down in the War of 1812.. I know everything about this area , past and present and love interacting with my guests. I try very hard to not only welcome them but am intent on learning and guiding them to having the best vacation they could possibly have.
Sandy Yates purchased this house in 2008
This is a wonderful property. The neighborhood is so quiet and friendly. It is only 3 streets of small houses and cottages with the wonder of Lake Ontario, right there in your back yard. Ot os a very special place and one can't help but bond and relax while there. It is so close to all the action, but yet it is wonderful to come home to peace and tranquility. !
There are so many benefits, it is hard to know where to start. The lake front is just. a few steps away from the house. Although it is private to only the residents of this small community, it is like having your own private lake because there is seldom anyone at the lakefront. There is a wonderful spacious living room with a wrap around couch that is so perfect for visiting with family and friends. I love dogs and even offer an extra service in which I can watch your dog with tender loving care, if you decide to take a long day trip to Canada or elsewhere. .
We came to Lewiston because our parents wanted to see Niagara Falls. We decided to celebrate their 60 years of marriage and our fathers 79 birthday. When we arrived we found our "Home Away from Home". There were 4 of us and two dogs and plenty of space for all of us. It was fully furnished and charmingly decorated. Sandy thought of everything from shampoo to laundry detergent; from salt to coffee filters. Sandy even had pastries and water upon our arrival...Just like a mom would. Lewiston was located at the heart of everything we planned for our vacation.
The day after we arrived, our Father suffered a stroke and had to be hospitalized. Sandy was a God send. I called Sandy and told her what had happened and she provided information for the nearest hospital, She gave us information on where to get his handicap sticker. She stayed in constant contact with us checking on his condition. We would have been lost without her help and knowledge of the area, which was invaluable. We will always be indebted to her. She has continued to stay in touch checking on his condition.
When our father left the hospital we returned to Sandy's for a few days so Dad could rest. It was a perfect retreat...it was so peaceful. We would walk him down to the lake. He would sit on the bench and watch the sailboats.
Sandy referred us to several destinations in the area that did not disappoint us.
From restaurants,entertainment and even to fishing charters, Sandy left no stone unturned. She literally thought of everything to make our stay memorable. Even with the situation with our father, we will never forget this trip, and we were still able to take our parents to Niagara.
We have mentioned her home as a perfect getaway for a quiet, peaceful, beautiful memory...which is what a vacation is all about. We plan to return and when we do, we will definitely check to see the availability of her place.
We know if we don't, it will be booked. We loved being only a few steps from beautiful Lake Ontario. We walked several of it's banks. We could also see Toronto on the horizon. What else could you ask for in a vacation. Sandy was the perfect host during our stay in upstate New York.
Me and my family (and Dogs) had a great time. Easy access to the lake, Fort Niagara park and the Niagara falls. This clean house is cozy and has all the amenities you need. We would recommend it to anyone. Between the US and Canadian side you can spend easily a whole week exploring different sites.
The house is close enough to the sites and far enough for your peace and quiet.
We came to Niagara on a -20 degree weekend to watch our son play college hockey. We arrived to a warm house with fresh pastries on Friday afternoon - such a sweet touch. The house was clean and perfect for us! Unfortunately by the time we got back to the house on Friday night the furnace had given up the ghost - was working too hard on this super cold night. This was a problem I am sure many homeowners were having in the area with the unseasonably cold temps. We were ready to head to a chain hotel but, no. Here is the amazing part. The owner, Sandy, found us another place to stay for the night!!! This was an incredible feat for 2 reasons - she was not in the area and we had three dogs with us!. AND, even better, the furnace was fixed THE NEXT DAY so we could stay there Saturday. This house is adorable, cute, clean and right on the lake. And the B&B that hosted us Friday night (Sonny's Roost in Lewiston) was just as cute and friendly. We will come back here in a heartbeat. I have done VRBO in many places in the US and Sandy is the most wonderful owner yet. I would give her 10 stars if I could. She went above and beyond for us. Thanks, Sandy. Many hugs!
Sandy was a fantastic host! We booked this very last minute, but she was very accommodating and made the trip work! The house was roomy, fun, clean and a great location. The property being "pet friendly" was a huge bonus! The location was great with the house being about a 20 min drive to Niagara Falls, close to local wineries, and close to the numerous small towns with great restaurants and local pubs.
The homemade scones she left for us was a fantastic touch! We would stay here again!
Our family arrived in the evening we were welcomed with coffee and fresh bakery. Sandy was always in contact with us providing the information about the local places (entertainments, food, etc.) That is a wonderful place on a beach of Ontario Lake.
The house is on a corner which appears to be a double lot in a quiet neighborhood. There's one (messy) neighbor next door but it's hidden by trees and we didn't see anyone the whole week. It's about 50 feet to the waters edge (you need to climb down to get to it) and provides nice fishing and beautiful sunsets. The house was clean and the Living Room spacious enough for the 4 of us to be comfortable. The second floor does have low ceilings but that didn't prove a problem for us (we are just under 6' tall). Each bedroom was nicely put together and very comfortable. Niagara Falls is about 20-25 minutes from the house. We also visited Fort Niagara (right down the street), Lockport Canals (about 20-30 minutes) the Buffalo Zoo (about 40 minutes), Joseph Davis National Park (for fishing, about 15 minutes) and Whirlpool Falls and Devils Hole (both within 20 minutes) for walking/hiking.. We strongly suggest "The Silo" in Lewiston (Man vs.Food ate here). It has a beautiful lake setting, nice walking path and is completely sustainable (very important to us!). The pizza place/gas station in town has excellent pie. The small grocery store in town (Messoni's) provides alot but is pricey. Get the Discovery Pass at Niagara Falls, it's worth it and is an excellent deal plus they give you some coupons! Maid of the Mist provides you with keepsake ponchos. Cave of the Winds also provides keepsake ponchos and sandals. We took the advice of others and went to the Cave first (kept our sandals on, they're actually pretty comfortable) then went to the Maid. You have to carry all your belongings so travel light this day. We kept our lunches in coolers in the car and ate a picnic lunch every day by the Falls (eating in Niagara Falls is pricey). We cooked breakfast and several dinners at the house. We also ate at Bandanna's just down the road which was excellent and reasonably priced. Our cleaning deposit was returned within 48 hours! All in all it was a wonderful vacation. Thanks Sandy!!!!
