We had a great time. The view of the River at this house just can't be beat. Photos do not do it justice. Also, We were very glad that the owner was around to

help us with a medical emergency and was able to take my mother to the hospital. It turned out ok, but could have ruined our vacation. So, thank you Glenn for your help right when we needed it. Tracy and Mel - Ohio


Moody & Smith family - This is a 5 star home ! The location was perfect. It is right in between Niagara Falls and Buffalo. It was very convenient for sightseeing. There were 9 of us aged 9 to 59. There was plenty to keep everyone occupied. The youngest loved fishing on the dock and swimming in the pool. The teenagers loved the pool and theatre room. They all enjoyed smores at the firepit. The older ones enjoyed the deck overlooking the water watching the ducks, geese and the daily heron visit.


The house was as described and more. We have been staying at vacation rental homes for over 15 years and this is by far the best stocked home we have stayed at. It has literally everything you will ever need.


We ate out but the kitchen was well stocked with everything needed including a bottle of wine, spices, coffee, filters and a complete array of pots and pans.

Glenn was a pleasure to work with. He is onsite and available to offer advise and take care of the pool and hot tub. THANKS GLENN FOR SOME WONDERFUL MEMORIES!!


We had a wonderful time & want to come back. Great vacation property and you have kept it up very well. We loved the Pool, Hot Tub, Foosball and Pool Table. Maps and all the extras are a very nice touch. And, thank you for the use of your computer ! Kim, Hakim and Family - Massachusettes


Could not have found a better place to stay.

The Niagara River Inn made our trip memorable. Excellent place to stay with family and friends. Owner of the home, Glenn, is very kind and very helpful person. His kindness and care shows in every inch of the house. He provided us with great touring tips and also to loan us a computer. My husband forgot his laptop and we could not thank Glenn enough since he loaned us his laptop. We enjoyed the hot tub, grilling and sitting by the river. Very peaceful, well maintained property right on the Niagara river.

My kids 4 year old and 2.5 year old keep asking me when are we going back.

My sister was visiting me from India for 3 weeks and this trip was the best memory that she could carry with her back home...thanks to Niagara River Inn.


Whoa, nice view

Our stay in November was great. The view of the River is great and the location could not be better. The house offers more than any others and we enjoyed the firepit by the water and TV that is huge, a very nice feature. Hope to get back in the summer. I recommend it to anyone.


Can't wait to go back!

Staying at the Niagara River Inn was the perfect way to spend a few days in the Niagara Falls area. It was definitely nicer than staying in a sterile hotel room! The Inn felt very homey and warm, with huge windows that looked out on the Niagara River; it was clean and spacious, and we were given a nice bottle of wine by the owner. The location was convenient to drive to Niagara Falls, as well as into Buffalo.


This was a welcoming and comfortable home with all the the things one would be looking for in quality lodging including a unique view of the Niagara River and the logistical convenience to Western New York and the Niagara Region.


'Fantastic Family Holiday' We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your wonderfully located home. All the facilities were First class, beautiful views of the river. Ideally located.

About Glenn

Notice the reviews that mention the great tips and advice for all the best restaurants and things to see in the area that the owner gives you. There is no manager here, the owner takes great pride in the up keep of the property and greets each and every guest upon check in.

Improvements are made every year and recently all interior and patio doors have been replaced, real wood paneling, all exterior surfaces stained and painted, new roof, new pool liner and more.

Owner Glenn Wallace is a singer/songwriter who has toured the US for many years before settling down on Grand Island, NY. He has written a number of songs that have won National and International awards, toured the US. Some well known acoustic performers have even done performances at Glenn's home when they are in the area.

His large collection of stringed instruments are displayed on the walls along with other antiques which give the home a more warm and cozy feel that you won't get at any hotel and very few other home rentals.

He has a few well known ansestors including Captain Van Valkenburgh the Commanding Officer of the US Arizona at the bottom of Pearl Harbor (Memorial in Hawaii) and William Wallace of Scotland.

Glenn purchased this house in 1994

Why Glenn chose New York

Glenn has 3 homes on the Niagara River and takes pride in offering the best lodging with many amenities and all the details to make your stay more enjoyable.

Grand Island is a great location being only 10 minutes from the Falls and Buffalo, near everything with 2 State Parks, a Sand Beach, Hiking/Biking Trails, Golf Courses, Frisbee Golf, Wedding Facilities and a Sledding Hill in Winter


3 homes:

Niagara River Cottage - 5 Br slp 12

Niagara River Chalet - 3 BR slp 8

Niagara River Inn - 3 Br slp 10



5 stars to be sure. Excellent home. We had a great time relaxing in the pool and the hot tub. The house was fantastic and had everything we needed. Glenn was a lot of help and there when we needed him. We enjoyed our stay, and recommend it very highly.


Thanks so much for the nice place to relax after our long race ! Great house, and you advice was helpful. Location was easy to get to everything. Hope to come back. Lots of fun. Thank You


Glenn, We had a great time, the Pool Table was a big hit with us. The view of the river was spectacular !


Thank you much for a wonderful week in this beautiful home on the Niagara River. The house was neat and clean and fully equipped with everything we needed. We loved the games and we felt very at home here. The maps came in very handy. Just a great vacation for us, thanks.


Thank you Glenn, we had too much fun. Could not think of a better place for our Family Reunion. We had not seen each other in 9 years and we had not even considered a house, and now we would not stay anywhere but a house. So much nicer than any hotel. And, all the extras, I just was not expecting all that. We went to see the Falls, but we had a lot more fun just hanging out at your house. Having you as a host for advise was great.

What makes this house unique

A FEW MORE REVIEWS - From our Guest Book:


The Perfect place for a Niagara Falls Vacation

I've fallen in love with this property since I first stayed there in 2007. The accommodations are pristine and the addition of a theater room is just incredible. My husband and two daughters love this property. The owner is onsite and is the best host ever. If you need him he is right there with information on how to make your trip a blast.

The bedrooms have their own temperature control (a big plus). The view of the river from two of the bedrooms and the living/dining room is priceless.

One of the most beautiful properties and perfect location. After a day of touring, it's just nice to turn on the fireplace and enjoy a nice cup of hot chocolate by the fire. The movies and board games are great. The main bathroom rivals any bathroom in the magazines. Whenever I am in Niagara falls, this is my choice property to stay at. It's just about a 10 minute drive to the falls and border crossing into Canada.


What a great vacation home with everything you could possibly want. A beautiful waterfront view to enjoy the sunrise everyday. A pool, firepit on the river and a dock to fish. We found the location great for visiting Niagara Falls and Canada, and some great sights and restaurants. Glenn is a wonderful owner and is very helpful with places to eat, see and shop.

We would highly recommend this vacation home we had such a wonderful time with our family

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great View - Great House

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family had a great time. 30 years of traveling and this is the best home we have stayed in. The view of the Niagara River is super, kids kept busy with the pool table and the foosball table and how can you not love a large in-ground pool and hot tub.

Sitting around the campfire with family and friends was my favorite. Great yard to play games, fish off the dock and then be so close to all the attractions in the area.

Glenn, the host, gave us advise and information but he also provides everything, even a bottle of wine. We had lots of fun. Highly recommend.

Nice Location!

  • 4 of 5

The location is the house's best asset. Niagara Falls, the area's wine region, and Buffalo are all easily accessible from the house. We made ample use of the pool and hot tub, and enjoyed the sound of crashing waves while relaxing on the upper deck.

We were a group of ten, eight adults and two children, and found the sleeping arrangements a bit lacking for eight adults. There was enough bed space, but not really comfortable sleeping conditions.

Owner's Response: Very glad you enjoyed your stay. However, I am surprised about your comment. As advertised, I have 3 Bedrooms. All bedrooms, beds and extra bed space are described on my ads, contract, and in more detail on my website. ---------- I have an maximum of 10 people and having that upper limit does not mean the bed space is ideally suited to your particular group. ---------------------- I have 2 other homes, both have 4 + Bedrooms and more bed space. ------ To ensure your vacation is perfect and my home suits your needs, please call me anytime, and see my website with 3 pages of photos and all details. ---- Thanks, Glenn

Perfect place for large families!

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent house for our needs. We had 5 adults and 5 children, and all comfortably fit without feeling cramped. The ages of the children were 15, 14, 13, 11, & an 11 mo old baby. One of the rooms fit all 5 of the kids, even the baby who had a private large closet area for quiet naps & bedtime. The house had several extra blankets, pillows, a high chair, pak-n-play. The pool and hot tub were a wonderful luxury and our kids enjoyed that and the pool table, and fishing from the dock. Glenn was very friendly, helpful with anything we needed. If we ever wanted to come back to this area, we wouldn't hesitate to use this same house. It was beautiful, clean, and a wonderful location. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - thanks for opening up your home for our use, Glenn! :-)
