The modern style house is approximately 1,700 square feet with three fully furnished levels. The three story home allows for three bedrooms, two full baths, kitchen, dining room, living room, sitting room, laundry room, two decks, gated back yard and private driveway.

The fully loaded kitchen will provide all the conveniences of home including a breakfast bar, dishwasher, stove, refrigerator, and complete sets of dishware/cooking pans/utensils.

Each room in your private beach house showcases beautiful furniture, decorations and artwork. Waterfront living at it's best!

(40 minutes from Niagara Falls)

Your vacation house is perfectly situated in the middle of all the attractions on Ontario street. We are across the street from the Olcott Beach Carousel Park and one door down from the Lakeview Village Shoppes which offer retail shopping, winery, ice cream shop, food and galleries on the waterfront. Directly across the street is a park with a gazebo that features free Sunday afternoon concerts.

Additional restaurants, gift shops, replica light house, fishing pier and the 120 acre Krull county park are all within a minute walk from the Olcott Beach House. A full service marina and is also just around the corner. Olcott Beach enjoys a superior reputation for world class fishing destination by sportsmen and hobbyists.

The Town of Newfane which is less than ten minutes away provides grocery shopping, retail, fine beverage store, restaurants and more.

The Niagara Wine trail that features over 15 wineries is off of the main road and can be biked. Wine tours, tastings, events and festivals are held year-round.

Historical sites such a the stately turn-of-the century Van Horn Mansion and Murphy's Orchards underground railroad site and tea rooms are just a few of the many gems in the immediate area. You-pick farms, orchards and local vegetable stands provide the taste of the region.

Burt Dam and Fisherman’s Park located along Eighteenmile Creek for additional fishing and scenic hiking trail is also just down the road . We are located on Lake Ontario, off Route 78 North which is less than an hour from Buffalo. And of course, the majestic Niagara Falls, Fort Niagara, Wilson, Lewiston are other local highlights that require only a short car drive. If you enjoy Crystal Beach in Canada, you will love it here. Olcott Beach is a treasure.

And of course, there is your own private beach. You will be literally steps away from beautiful Lake Ontario.

The view is amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

The owners had left extra toiletries, filled candy bowls, had a variety of k-cups already available and even bought us some pastries as a welcoming gift. The home was truly a "home away from home" with comfortable living areas and a fantastic view to enjoy throughout the day. It was great enjoying a cup of coffee taking in the sights and sounds of the lake! It was truly peaceful when I really needed serenity the week we were there. The weather was great with rain only on one day and temps in the high 60s-mid 70s during our stay. Thanks, Scott and Michelle for allowing us the use of your home to make some incredible memories. Sometimes that is what gets us through life-- great memories. Bye's popcorn, Cafora's, East Side market, local wineries, lake view, etc. make Olcott/Newfane easy to enjoy. Close to Niagara Falls and Lockport for additional activities.

Wonderful Vacation in Olcott Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable stay in Olcott Beach. Scott and Michelle's home is

lovely and we could not have felt more welcome. Watching the sunsets from the porch and

viewing the activity on Lake Ontario was truly a tonic for us. We look forward to returning

in the future.

A beautiful, family friendly village on Lake Ontario ~ a perfect place to unplug and relax.

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible week in a lovely home. The only challenge and this may be important for some people, is that there is no wifi or cell coverage in the house / property. We would have to walk around the block to find a signal. If you work remotely or have family that you are needing to keep contact with this can be a concern. However for some that do not need that connection it may actually make this property the PERFECT place to truly unplug. No distractions, no beeping.

The house is filled with everything you need to cook, play, swim, sleep and clean up after yourself. The view is breath taking - truly seeing Toronto across the lake in the nightly sunsets. The small village is much busier and entertaining than I ever imagined it would be. The shops are adorable, the restaurant near the park is excellent with a wonderful selection of wines and the ice cream parlor has the new curled ice cream that is all the rage (it was yummy). With the right books and company you would never have to leave Olcott. Although the general store is very limited so stock up on food essentials and anything that you may need for dietary restrictions.

But we DID leave Olcott. Less than an hour to Buffalo - a city I fell in love with. An hour to Niagra Falls - and all that both sides have to offer. Less than three hours to Toronto which was AMAZING. Wineries everywhere if you enjoy that as well! This was a perfect week that ended far too soon and coming home after a day trip to a beautiful sunset, a comfortable bed and fresh coffee in the morning made me a lake lover for the rest of my life. A day spent swimming, resting, reading and playing Yahtzee in the house was just as wonderful in its own way. You can keep the noisy ocean and sharks. :) Scott was available at all times to answer questions as well. Thank you Scott and Michelle for sharing your home I truly appreciated it.

Owner's Response: Michelle and I are so glad that Jen and her family were able to enjoy there stay in our beach home. They certainly picked a great week, and we would love to have them back again! With so much to do in the immediate and surrounding area its hard to take it in in just one stay. We are surprised and sorry to hear about having trouble with cell service as Michelle and I both have simple Track Fone service and have never had trouble anywhere in the home or surrounding area.

Relaxing and beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip to Olcott Beach! The house was amazing and had everything we needed for our family of 5. The views from the deck were beautiful. We enjoyed playing on the beach and walking through the town. Only a 40 minute drive to Niagara Falls and Canada. Will definitely recommend this place!

Amazing view like being at the Ocean!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Olcott Beach house. First of all the views are amazing. The water was so close and vast it felt like we were at the ocean! The house is so comfortable, clean and inviting and the owners Michelle and Scott seem to have thought of everything from little toiletries like you'd find in a hotel but the houses was furnished and stocked as if it were your own complete with tubes for hoping waves in the water with beach shoes provided. The location is great being so close to the walk-able shops, kiddie amusement park, restaurants and the public beach with like guards. Just two of stayed but it can comfortably sleep 8 people. One of my favorite parts was just opening the patio doors and feeling the breeze and hearing the waves. It was so peaceful and uplifting. Our three day stay felt like a week. I'd highly recommend the beach house in every season.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was a great rental. The description of the property was accurate and Scott was easy to deal with. The location on the lake is terrific and walking distance to shops and restaurants in the Olcott Beach area. Plenty of room to spread out and relax. Kitchen was well appointed. Scott even left a few drinks and snacks because he knew I was getting in late. Will definitely come back again.
