Heinz and I bought this property for our retirement which is a few years away. We both are raising our son Marcus and have full time jobs. Looking after my senior Mother and younger brother as well. When we first saw the house we loved it. Over the past few years and the great guests we have had we have enjoyed seeing the pleasure with views and comfort it provides. It has been a lot of work to up keep but we remain focused on supplying our guests with an experience they will treasure -- family time and greeting time with their families in the comfort of our Beachfront Chalet.

KERRY HORTON purchased this chalet in 2015

Why KERRY HORTON chose Fort Erie

If you love tranquility and a peaceful "family" vacation -- long strolls on the beach and a fine wine overlooking the water from our Martini deck -- this is the place you'll love. I'm always amazed at how my guests "inhale" as they enter the floor to ceiling A framed chalet and express "wow" at that view..you live here? is always their next question. I hope you enjoy your stay and find that peace of mind we are looking for.

Wonderfully Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate enough to stay at this beautiful lakefront retreat for 5 nights in mid-June!!! Kerry's home is well-appointed and the location is wonderful. The best feature is, of course, the view. You can see the lake from almost every room in the house including the wonderful master bath soaking tub!! Outside there are at least 4 seating areas. We spent most of our time at the one in the picture. You can walk the beach, but you need shoes as much of the beach is shell covered. Also, directly in front of the home would be a bit difficult to swim because it is grown in with plants, but there are areas you can swim in as well as public beaches very close by. In some respects, that kept our beach more private and quiet. We literally spent hours just sitting out there enjoying the view.

The house itself is very well equipped. The kitchen has just about anything you would need to cook a gourmet meal as well as a gas barbeque out on the deck area. There is a large dining area, a screened-in porch, and a nice living space with a tv, chairs, and a couple of comfy couches. There are 3 bedrooms and two full baths.

Kerry was a great host and available any time we needed her or had a question. We had such a relaxing week. Niagara Falls, Niagara-On-the-Lake, Buffalo, the Niagara area wineries, as well many little cute towns and beach towns are all less than an hour away so if you want to go for lunch or dinner it is very quick to do so.

We hope to have the opportunity to return some day. Thanks for a wonderful stay!!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this beautiful home justice! The decor and surroundings were so relaxing, like our own spa. Gorgeous views of the lake from most rooms in the house. Day trips to Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake were very close and easy to get to. We had a wonderful time and appreciated taking our dogs, too!

Fantastic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the lakehouse for a weekend anniversary getaway. So glad we did! The location is so peaceful and beautiful. There are many outdoor spaces to lounge and enjoy the views. The inside is also spacious, yet cozy and comfortable. Plenty of seating for gatherings and spending time together. We enjoyed every moment we were there.

Niagara Falls is a quick 20 minute journey away so it is a great location for that as well.

Kerry was very accommodating and responded quickly to all messages. Just a very nice experience all around.

Thank you!

Kevin and Lesley

Amazing views and great house

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for great views and being just steps to the water this is the place. Great open floor plan with a ton of Windows, very nicely updated, decorated, and very clean! My wife, 1yr old son, and I enjoyed a very nice long weekend here in early September. It felt like we had the whole waterfront to ourselves. Though there are other houses nearby, it felt very private. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice relaxing get away.

Friendship trail at the end of driveway -- expands from Fort Erie to Crystal Beach -- great for walking, biking and rollerblading -- perfectly paved.

Fish reserve directly in front of property so there are no busy boating and noisy sea dos. Peaceful tranquility.
