Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Niagara Falls - Whirlpool Cottage

A 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Home with on-site Parking and Fenced in Backyard

Located in a lovely area of Niagara Falls, this 3 bedroom, 2 bath house is located only 3.3 miles from Niagara Falls State Park.

The master bedroom with attached bath is located on the first floor and has a queen bed. The other two bedrooms are located on the second floor and both have double beds. One of the rooms has a small sitting room attached that has a daybed for an extra guest. The other full bathroom is on the second floor.

On the first floor in addition to the master bedroom, is the kitchen, living room and dining room, and back hallway that leads to a screened in porch and the back yard.

The house is in the Deveaux area of Niagara Falls, a beautiful residential neighborhood, situated near Niagara University. The house is a 10-minute walk to the Whirlpool and Devil’s Hole State Parks and a 10 min. drive or 20 min. bike ride along the Gorge to the Niagara Falls State Park. Lewiston is also a short drive up the parkway and has many cute shops and nice restaurants.

The house is most easily accessed by car but the NFTA buses do run along Lewiston Road which is on the corner and goes to either Lewiston or to Niagara Falls.

The house has wi-fi throughout. There is a SmartTV and DVD player in the master bedroom, but there is no cable. There is a driveway for you to use to park your vehicle. Pets will be considered.

About Carroll Reetz

We are avid travelers and running this guesthouse allows us some freedom in the off season to do just that. Carroll spent most of her career in Human Resources but gave it all up (darn) several years ago to open a hostel in Niagara Falls- leaving the wonderful California weather behind but gaining a wonderful husband. Andre is from Germany and we found each other here! We have since expanded from the hostel and added a couple vacation rentals to our endeavors. We think they are a great alternative to a sterile hostel - more like home away from home. We love hosting visitors from all over the world and introducing them to not only the beauty of Niagara Falls but the uniqueness and history that surrounds us.

Carroll Reetz purchased this house in 2012

Why Carroll Reetz chose Greater Niagara

The Whirlpool Cottage is in the nicest area of Niagara Falls where visitors can feel relaxed and secure in their home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was really nice to stay here. The canape is lovely and the location is perfect for the visit to the Falls. We would love to spend here more time. Thank you.

Comfortable and convenient to the falls!

  • 5 of 5

This home is perfect for visiting Niagara with two couples or a family. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and the bathrooms are nicely updated. The home and neighborhood is welcoming and great for walking tours of the area.

Lovely home, great location!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the owners are wonderful - we had great communication and Carroll gave some us some great tips on things to do. We arrived to find the house very clean and full of charm and character. Myself, my husband and 2 college age boys were all very comfortable. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could need to make meals, which is why we rent VRBO's - we love to cook our own breakfasts and occasional dinners, so a stocked kitchen is important. There were even tons of spices so you don't have to buy any of those. The house is in the most perfect location to visit all the major attractions. We loved the falls, however one of our favorite excursions was when we spent the day in Whirlpool State Park and hiked down the many stone steps to the river, then hiked down further to see the whirlpool up close. This park is just a few miles from the house. On another day, we crossed over into Canada and bike rode among the vineyards in Niagara on the Lake - again, very convenient to do so from the New York side. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable stay!!

Feels like home!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in August and it was such a great stay! Other then a few minor issues it was such a pleasure staying at a home with our friends instead of staying in a hotel! It allowed us to spend so much time together and it was amazing! It was really close to Niagara Falls and even other shopping place that we wanted to go to. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Many many thanks go to the homeowners for letting us rent your house so we could have such a fantastic vacation!

Very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

My husband and two adults sons stayed at the property for 3 nites. We found it fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. Location was great for visiting the Falls and getting to many restaurants and grocery stores. Owner was very accommodating. I think the cottage is very comfortable but needs a little more curb appeal, front and backyard. Otherwise no complaints.

Owner's Response: We are happy you found our house comfortable and it suited your needs. We know that the yard and flowers have been suffering this year due to the drought in western New York. We have not had any measurable rain for 8 weeks this summer until recently. The usual green yards and gardens of western New York are pretty brown. We try to water as much as possible but also do not want to disturb our guests. Hopefully, we will get more rain soon and next year, the garden will be back to it's green and bright self.

Great location, Great neighborhood, spacious home

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time here in Niagara at this home. The home is very spacious with the two levels and three bedrooms. It was great having the sun room in the back and so nice to have a driveway to park the car in. We were so comfortable here in this home that was so much like the home we grew up in that we didn't want to leave.

We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and on that note it would have been nice to have a better set of pots and pans so we purchased our own. My family loves to cook even on vacation.

Thanks for a great home and great location. Loved the hardwood floors

Nice house

  • 4 of 5

This was a very nice house to stay at. I feel like it wasn't quite as close to everything as I thought it would be. Everything was very clean and neat. This was a great place to stay and j would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to vacation at niagara falls.
