About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Full Bath, Sleeps 6

In the local area, we were the first to list our property on this site, and have the most years of rental experience. We have been satisfying our guests since 2008!

Situated directly on stunning Lake Ontario, this vacation cottage lets you get away from it all! Enjoy quiet, relaxing days taking in the view or bring your boat and launch it from a local launching site and enjoy spending the day on the lake. If you are up for a land outing, adventure to Niagara Falls or see the Lockport Locks and hop on an Erie Canal Cruise. Take a tour at a local orchard or farm, or spend some time on the Niagara Wine Trail.

The property is situated on 150' of direct waterfront. The water is not deep near the shore, and is clear and warm. There is a well-maintained fire pit that can host evening bon fires and memory-making conversations. The inside is spacious! There is a beautiful fireplace made from Lake Ontario stones. There is an LCD tv (125 channels), & wireless internet access for those who can't quite leave the city behind.

We are always updating the property to make sure it meets your needs. The bathroom is brand new, as well as new stainless steel kitchen appliances.

Please feel free to email if you have any additional questions. We'll be happy to help you- we aim to please!

*Please note, Lake Ontario water levels are at record levels this year, and this has been causing some damage to the coastline. If you plan on spending time on the lake, please consult local conditions before doing so.

About Andrea

I grew up in the local area and remember many childhood outings to Lake Ontario. As an adult, my full-time residence is now in Seattle, WA, but my entire family still lives in Western NY, so we are there often visiting family and friends.

Andrea purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Andrea chose Barker

This property is really special, and we jumped at the chance to purchase it when it became available. The lot is quite large, and has sweeping views of Lake Ontario. The fireplace was made from stones from the lake- it's incredible. We love everything about this place!

What makes this cottage unique

When I'm here, I feel connected to nature, and disconnected from the hustle and bustle of every day life. I spend many hours in the "sky chairs" that hang from the trees. It's a great place to take in the views, nap, read a book, or browse on my iPad. The outdoor fire pit is a fan favorite- many a great campfire story has been told here. It's just a great place for everyone to come together and feel totally comfortable.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to tell you how much we LOVED our week at your lovely lake house. It was even better than what we expected...your decorating touches are so pretty and everything was very comfortable. The weather was cooler than average most of the week, so we didn't really swim at all, but perfect for being outside and enjoying all the nearby sights and offerings. We had never been to the Falls, and we all were awestruck and had an amazing time there (even the skeptical 15 year old :). We also were able to enjoy many of the area wineries, the Lockport cave tour, the jetboats, and a day trip to Rochester on a rainy day. It is such a lovely part of the country, and Lake Ontario also took our breath away with it's vastness. The views from the house are just beautiful.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know what a great time we had. Thank you again for all of your help in booking, and your suggestions for things to do.

Again, everything was just lovely. Thank you so much again! I hope we can get back again someday.

A perfect 3 generation get away..

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week on Lake Ontario! The cottage had everything we would need to kick back and relax! Sunsets were breathtaking and the kids enjoyed s’mores during our nightly fire! Niagara Falls made an enjoyable day trip. The only possible improvement I could suggest would be an easier way to get in and out of the lake (ladder or steps). It didn’t stop the little ones from skipping rocks and floating on their rafts, but I was hesitant to make the climb to get in. Perfect for older kids, but not for very young ones.. thank you for the wonderful memories!

A Comfortable and Beautifully Maintained Property

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time I rented this cottage during the summer and fall of 2105. The first time was during a family wedding to accommodate out of town guests, including myself. The second time was for a girls weekend over Columbus Day. The cottage is perfect for both groups - beautiful location, well maintained, comfortable furnishings. The appliances are new, as well as the beds, furniture, bedding and linens. The owners really care about this property and constantly update the furnishings and equipment.

The kitchen is fabulous (I am a professional chef) and has everything you can imagine as far as equipment and appliances. I prepared a wedding cake for 100 people without a hitch. The bathroom was beautifully updated and includes a washer and dryer as well as on demand hot water. The LR/DR/kitchen set-up was perfect for entertaining. The back lawn sweeps down to a break water and has amazing views of Lake Ontario. The tree swings, fire pit and back porch overlooking the Lake are great for families. I can imagine renting this property again and again!

Sweet cottage at Lake Ontario

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful visit to Lake Ontario! The cottage had everything we could have possibly needed and was very cozy! The beds were so comfortable; we all said we had the most restful sleep! The view of the lake is simply gorgeous! Unfortunately, it rained nearly everyday we were there, but we were able to play games and enjoy the views in front of the fire. Our dogs even enjoyed looking out the lovely windows. The cottage is clean and sweetly decorated, with new appliances throughout. The experience renting with Andrea was particularly positive. She was very responsive to emails and clearly takes pride in renting her home. I hope we have a chance to return to Barker to enjoy the lovely cottage again!

Excellent Choice for a Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family's stay at this vacation rental was wonderful! It's nice to stay somplace that includes all the exras of linens, towels, kitchen supplies, etc. The appliances were all new. Everything you could think of needing was there. The owners were more than helpful.

The yard was nice and big and included a beautiful view! The swings were a family favorite!

We will definitely be staying here again next time we make the trek up north!!
