Property Description

The "Lake House", in historic Crystal Beach, is one of two quaint century cottages on the SoCo Cottages property. The property is a short stroll from the beach where the historic "Crystal Beach Amusement Park" once stood. Perhaps you have fond memories of riding "The Comet" as a child. Although the amusement park no longer stands there are plenty of activities and attractions to fill your summer vacation! The "Lake House" is historic as it was erected in 1914. In the summer 2016 the SoCo Cottages property was purchased by a young couple from Niagara Falls. During the winter of 2016/2017 (and currently still) the cottage has undergone major renovations. The couple made sure to leave the historical charm while freshening up paint, flooring, lighting and furniture. Not only are you close to all that Crystal Beach, Ridgeway, Fort Erie and Buffalo have to offer but you are a mere 20-25 minute drive the the exciting Niagara Falls and the beautiful Niagara-on-the-Lake and the Bench of Grimsby. Niagara Falls in world renowned for its attractions while following the Niagara wine route will keep you occupied, and slightly tipsy, for days. Growing in the region over the last few years are also "micro breweries" for the beer lover! Our cottage offers basic amenities to make you more than comfortable when you return from your days journey for some rest and relaxation!

Very nice place in which to spend a week at Crystal Beach

The property is immaculate and updated very nicely. It is a perfect size for two people. It was comfortable and the location couldn't have been better. Plenty of parking, and nice neighbors. Despite the proximity to the neighbors, there was no noise.

Charming bungalow in a great location

It doesn't take long to become comfortable in this house. Very charming with lots of sun and in a great neighborhood with nice neighbors. Well appointed and many updates. Definitely a good value for the money.
