Our Week at Windago

  • 5 of 5

On the same day we requested to book the Windago Cottage, the owner called us stating he was pleased to receive our request. He shared with us a lot of information about the cottage and the Youngstown and Niagara Falls area. He followed up with an email which we referenced throughout the week while making our daily plans.

Upon arrival we found the cottage to be just as pictured and described, neat, clean and homey. We had everything we needed to make us feel like we had our own little home away from home. On cool mornings, the gas heater warmed us up nicely while we ate our breakfast and got ready to leave for the day. We stored my husband's fishing gear and our empty suitcases in the guest cottage so we had plenty of room in the main cottage. As we got acclimated to the area, we realized how close we were not only to the Niagara Falls attractions and Canada, but also to the surrounding towns and all the wonderful home style restaurants and diners. The list of restaurants provided by the owner was helpful and we tried many of them during the week. We learned a lot of the area’s history when we went to Fort Niagara. We also found the history behind the Freedom Crossing and Tuscarora Monuments in Lewiston to be very interesting.

We said to each other, more than once, that we were so happy we found the cottage and made the choice to stay there away from the hustle and bustle of the Niagara Falls area and the big hotels. We enjoyed the peace and quiet as well as the privacy. The neighbors we met were friendly and helpful and beautiful Lake Ontario was just a stone's throw away. The property manager replied promptly to a phone message we left for him upon departure.

Our vacation was wonderful and the weather cooperated. We did everything we wanted to do including taking in all of the usual tourist attractions and going to Canada. We had a lot of fun! We would stay there again in a heartbeat and would recommend it to others.

Windigo Cottage

  • 5 of 5

perfect base for a recent trip home- close to Robert Moses made jaunts to the Falls and

Buffalo very convenient, as well as Lewiston Art Park and Wine Trail. Location is quiet and comfy. took advantage of proximity to Fort Niagara for morning walks- walked 10 mi to Village of Lewiston and back along the river. would definitely return.

Loved this cottage

  • 5 of 5

We always rent cabins instead of hotel rooms at vacation time, & we couldn't be more pleased with Windigo Cottage. The weekly rate fit right into our budget & there was plenty of room for our family of 5. (It's not always easy to find a place for more than 4 people!) The 'guest cottage' was a major selling point, our boys LOVED having their own house... us parents liked that too. The futon was comfortable for our daughter, and you KNOW a teenage girl won't hesitate to complain. We had enough room to unpack, and if you're like me & don't quite have a full week of favorite clothes, there is a laundromat about 5 minutes away. The cottage itself is well stocked, clean & comfortable. Plenty of seating for all of us, which is something else you don't always find.

It really is only 15 minutes to all the Niagara Falls attractions, an easy drive & the only traffic we saw all week were the lines going over the bridges to Canada. Even Buffalo is only a little more than 30 minutes away. With such a convenient location & reasonable rate, you can't go wrong staying at Windigo Cottage.

Excellent value - Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Windigo Cottage is in a perfect location, far away from the tourist crowds but only a 15 minute drive to the heart of Niagara Falls attractions. It is in a very quiet and relaxing neighborhood, well equipped and very quaint. Our family of five slept in great comfort, and my younger ones loved having their own separate 'mini cottage'.

We found the property to be exactly as described and pictured on the cottage's website. While the property is older, there are many updated touches throughout. It is very comfortable and peaceful in a scenic and convenient location, at a really great rate. It was very easy to communicate with the owner, Bill, as well as the local agent to arrange arrival. Thanks to both, for making this transaction so easy and stress-free.

Highly recommend!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Buffalo at 30 Miles Car: necessary

Besides all the activities the falls has to offer enjoy biking,

fishing, or boating.Bring your bikes and enjoy miles and miles of

bike trails on both sides of the Niagara River. Actually a bike is

the best way to get around and see the falls and to go to Canada.

Lake Ontario and the Niagara River are considered to be some of the

best fresh water fishing in North America. The cottage has plenty of

parking for a boat or an RV. At Fort Niagara (2minutes away) you

have 2 great boat ramps at the mouth of the river. Great FREE CONCERTS every Tuesday and Wednesday nights at Art Park (10 minutes away)Email me for a list.
