Just Darling!

  • 5 of 5

So very peaceful! The weather was quite hot for this time of year, but the covered porch was a lovely spot to enjoy a gentle breeze from the lake with spectacular views. Such a comfy home and Bev and Dan couldn't have been more gracious in sharing their perfect spot on the lake. Mariners Landing in Olcott Beach was a very short drive away and the New England Chowder, lake perch and baby red potatoes were delicious! Must make a quick trip to the little popcorn stand on 78 for fresh carmel corn too!. But make sure you are back in time for sunset on the lake - not to be missed!

Owner's Response: This weather has been absolutely amazing. What a pleasure to meet you and to have you as our guests at the Lake House. Mariners Landing is a favorite of ours as well. Bye's popcorn is a must when ever you are in the area! We hope to see you again in the future. Thank you so much for staying with us. Sincerely, Bev

Don't pass this up!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The minute we pulled up, we couldn't stop grinning! The house is adorable and very well-stocked. You can tell the owners are proud to share it. The views are AMAZING from almost every single room! You know it's going to be a great day when you can wake up every morning and immediately see the lake from the floor to ceiling windows/door in the master bedroom without even getting out of bed!! If you look off to the left from the back porch, you can see part of the skyline of Toronto. My husband and I both work long hours and we needed a place to truly detach from our day-to-day schedules. This house / location could not have been any more perfect. You feel like you're a million miles away from everything but, anything you need is in close proximity -- grocery stores, wineries, fresh vegetables/fruit stands, super cute gift shops, parks, etc. We HIGHLY recommend this property and we were very sad to leave. We will definitely be returning!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you got a chance to enjoy and relax at the Lake House. There is so much to do in the area and no need to drive very far to experience it all. I must admit those views are amazing. Please plan to come back and visit soon. It was a pleasure to meet you both. Regards, Dan & Bev

Las Vegas

Beautiful and comfortable property.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures were very inviting on the VRBO website, however the house was beyond our expectations once we arrived and saw it in person! We found the house very clean and well maintained and the beds were very comfortable! Having some of my family with us from Las Vegas that have never been to Western New York before, we could not have asked for better accommodations to make their first impression an impressive one. We used the kitchen throughout the week of our stay and found everything we needed. Again, everything was spotless and very convenient and easy to find.

We consider ourselves very fortunate to have picked your home and to have personally met the two of you. You seem like a warm and kind couple! We look forward, with your permission, to renting from you again in the future.

Beautiful home with amazing lakefront views

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this beautiful home which is even nicer than the photos. There's a lot to do with many vineyards, Niagara Falls, Buffalo and Lockport nearby. We were sad to leave, want to come back next summer.

Peaceful home with wonderful views

  • 4 of 5

House is beautifully landscape. Back yard has a great deck and a large porch. On a clear day you can see Toronto. We saw plenty of freighters passing by and was lucky enough to see a few sailboats. Sunsets on the lake are beautiful. Unfortunately the lake was very ruff, so we were not able to swim. The waves were so large you would think you were at the beach. The kitchen was sized well enough to cook, loved the updated oven. Livingroom had plenty of room for the 4 of us and our dog to hang out in. Like having the 2 large bathrooms. No issues with WiFi. Easy to get to the Falls and some great restaurants. Overall the house was a great vacation .

There were a few reasons I didn't give it 5 stars

1) wished kitchen had more staple items (like sugar for coffee )

2) the sleeper is a blowup bed that once blown up took away from the large master room, we couldn't use the doors to the porch.

3) being short was hard to reach alot of stuff in cabinets above the stove

4) rug infront of livingroom porch door made it pain to open and close the door.

The above items were not enough to effect our vacation. We really enjoyed our stay.
