Charming Lake Cottage
These two cottages met our needs perfectly! When we arrived, the cottages were neat, clean and exactly as described & photographed in the ad. I fully appreciated no surprises upon arrival. The area was very quiet, private and peaceful and the neighbors I met were very nice people. Every morning, I walked to the lake (Ontario) shore and photographed the morning sun rising over the lake, as well as a few amazing sunsets. It took about one minute to walk to the shoreline. On a clear day, Toronto can be seen from the shore. By the end of our stay, I did not want to leave. I imagine it would be so peaceful and easy to stay at Windigo Cottages forever.
Thanks so much for staying at the cottage. I'm glad you enjoyed the cottage as much as we do.
Very cozy and Bill, the owner was always available to answer any questions.
It is very close to Niagara Falls in about 3 minutes ride to Old Fort Niagara which is a great place to visit.
Thanks so much for staying at the cottage. I'm so glad you had a great vacation. And thanks for being such a great guest.
Nice, clean cottage for a stay in the Niagara region.
Quiet neighborhood and all the amenities needed for an enjoyable week. Large deck and guest cottage are extras not always found. We'll be back!
Thanks so much for the nice review Mark!! Thanks for staying at the cottage. Bill
Our Week at Windago
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.
Thanks so much for the nice review!!
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.
