About this listing
A perfect place to change your point of view, rest or play and access to the many attractions of the Niagara Region. Just up from the shore of Lake Erie the cottage is a quaint 2 bedroom - fully furnished with all that you need to rejuvenate.
This cozy cottage is in Ridgeway Ontario Canada is just west of Fort Erie and the American border (the Peace Bridge and Buffalo N.Y) and just south by 20 min from Niagara Falls. Ridgeway is a cute little Ontario town - the cottage in summer is full with summer fun just up from the beach and in winter is quaint, meditative and quiet - great for long walks and deep thoughts - September the lake water is still warm for swimming and its a bit quitter on the beach.
Although we are willing to accommodate 4 or 5 day rentals we prefer weekly and monthly rentals - However we are happy to communicate and accommodate all proposals.
In summer time (May 15 to Sept 15) when the beach sand warms up the price is almost double that of the early spring, fall and winter - the area is lovely at this time of year as well. Peak times will be June through end of August. Please check our weekly and monthly prices for those times. This cottage is great for family summer vacations and/or adults who need time away.
Whether you are interested in tranquility or summer fun the cottage is great.
At this time the cottage is set up with internet but no cable. The families that stayed here in the summer months liked it that way. It would get the kids out of the house rather than in front of the TV. It is easy to add netflicks if you need movies and tv series, just ask. We are willing to set you up with services to combat the wintertime blues - let us know. We usually meet guests at the cottage to check in and out.
This place is a great getaway in Ontario Canada. Great for personal get aways if you want to get that writing done - a number of writers have written in the comfy swivel rockers - an inspiring space.
