“Very nice stay, good base for touring the area”

This was a nice alternative to a hotel. The cottage was very nice and was in a quiet neighborhood. Grand Island made a nice base to explore Niagara Falls and the surrounding area.

The bathrooms and kitchen were top notch. Large TV with DVD player in the main room. High speed internet is wired only (no wireless access, so beware if you have an iPad). The house itself is in great condition, but is a bit creaky (but what do you expect for a 100+ year old house). Air conditioning was provided by window units and fans, which was perfectly adequate even in August.

Glenn the owner was easy to deal with. We never had any issues during our stay, but we appreciated his recommendations for local wines and restaurants.

So glad you enjoyed your stay ! Wireless internet is on my list and
will have it in a few weeks. And, glad you mentioned the stairs... the
old wood creaks.... but because of your email... I figured out a way to
fix the creaks. I take pride in being the best, and feedback like you
gave me is very helpful. Glenn
