house rental amenities

Sunset Island is a lovely community of seasonal and (a few) year-
round residents who enjoy a particular kind of life: No cars, no trucks, no phones (unless you bring your own) a laid-back, easy, family-oriented lifestyle.
You can arrive by boat from Lake Ontario or a public launch ramp
across the harbor at the Wilson-Tuscarora State Park, or by foot, a 10-minute walk through the park. Guests may park their car in the park and either walk in or boat in using the Doherty dinghy.
A stone beach on the island (or a sand beach at the state park),
tennis courts, badminton nets and a horseshoe pit on the island, plus miles of marked nature trails and a Frisbee-golf course in the park offer plenty of family activities.Easy access to Lake Ontario and miles of back-stream waterways offer splendid opportunites for sailing, fishing, canoeing and kayaking.

traveler reviews for this wilson house rental

Two weeks on Sunset Island

Review submitted: June 13, 2013   Date of arrival: August 13, 2012

Kevin and Rose have established an absolute charming cottage on Sunset Island. My family spent two weeks there and we could have spent easily two more. You are not going to find a more patient person than Kevin on this planet. My work schedule was changing daily and he was so accomodating with our dates that I cannot thank him enough. The cottage itself is so thoughtfully laid out and decorated that I thought I was stepping into an article featuring Scandinavian cottage design in Architectural Digest. My two young boys would wake up every morning and run down to the ping pong table at the village green and then head to the lake shore in hunt of the most interesting washed glass. I grew up in WNY and had not been home for an extended time in 25 years. It thankfully has not changed and that is ever present with the wonderful residents on the island. Truly a specially group.
Thank you Kevin for sharing your cottage with us.

I have been renting this cottage with a few friends for many years. The cottage layout is nice and has ample room to relax. The owners Rose and Kevin are real nice people and strive to ensure you enjoy your stay. The island setting makes this a relaxing and quiet place to enjoy your vacation. The neighbors are all very nice friendly people. Overall this is a great place to stay and I would recommend this cottage to others.

A week on Sunset Island

Review submitted: July 30, 2011   Date of arrival: July 17, 2011

Amazing and unique place! A place to get away from it all, yet near many wonderful destinations. Niagara Falls, Fort Niagara, and many wineries are within 30 minutes away.

The cottage is clean, open and beautiful. We stayed during a heat wave, but it is always cooler on the island, and always a breeze when sitting outside, with a wonderful view of the harbor.

My family (wife and sons 8 and 12) spent a week here to attend my high school reunion. We took in the local sites, swam in the lake daily and had the best time a family could have.

The owners are terrific. They loaded our luggage and supplies into their boat upon our arrival and departure so we didn't have to carry it all.

Highly recommended!
