Deer Lake is a quiet 163-acre lake less than 2 miles from downtown Buffalo's wonderful antique & occasional shops. Perfect for a relaxing getaway. We have everything you need, except running water inside, but don't let that scare you! Amenities include a lugga-loo potty-serviced daily, an outdoor shower, small refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee pot, cable tv, air-conditioner, a new DVD player, lakeside firepit, hot tub access, beautiful four poster bed & more. Winter? Keep reading.
Relax on the couch & look out of the French doors to see a beautiful lake view complete with your own firepit area with supplied firewood.
The cozy studio space is beautiful with red brick walls, open rafters to the vaulted ceiling and lots of charm! A beautiful four poster queen-sized bed, complete with electric blanket, will let you relax, cuddle and snooze while listening to the birds in the trees and rain on the roof (weather permitting).
If your booking is after the first freeze of the year, the outdoor shower is shut down. We then will have you come into the main house and use the bathroom for your showering needs.
We have a brand new 50,000 BTU propane gas heater in the boathouse to warm it up for Airbnb guests anytime of year. The front has a 'fire-like' look to add to the cozy ambiance.
Deer Lake Public Boat Access is right next to our property. It is easy to launch and land your boat & tie up to our dock during your stay. We have a canoe and a kayak to use as well as various life jackets & a swimming raft. August does mean our lake has a few more weeds than earlier in the year, but there are several lakes within five miles that have dedicated swimming beaches if that is what you need.
You will have your own fire-pit and firewood, near the lake, a large family sized rustic picnic table, a Weber grill, tetherball, & well-loved hammock. You also have access to our well-loved hot tub. The stars make for a breathtaking scene during a night time soak.
If your booking is after the first freeze of the year, the outdoor shower is shut down. We then will have you come into the main house and use the bathroom for your showering needs, when we are home.
We are available to be of assistance when you need something or our help. We don't mind mingling with you if you like~ we have been accused of being very friendly! Ultimately, our guests set the tone and amount of interaction they would like.
We have a system to change out your potty daily:)
Between 4 pm and 8 pm, we look for a time when either you are away or are up and about, active or outside. We sneak in, switch your used potty with a fresh, spic-n-span new potty! If you are home and sleeping or laying low, we will just put the fresh potty right outside your back door. We will send you a message letting you know the fresh potty has been delivered. Just grab your new potty and put the used one outside (the back door). The whole process is easy-peasy and very private.
IF YOU ARE NEW TO AIRBNB, it may be helpful to know, reviews are VERY important in the Airbnb community. Ratings for guests and hosts are examined closely when traveling or hosting. If something is amiss, PLEASE let us know right away and we will do what we can do to earn 5 stars for your stay.
PLEASE SIGN OUR GUEST BOOK and share your name, when you stayed with us and what you thought! It is fun to look at other entries and see things others have to say.
PETS: PLEASE CHECK WITH US REGARDING PETS. We ask that 'approved' pet guests, not lounge on the couch or plaid rocker. Approved pets will wither need to be kenneled if you leave, or go along. Consider bringing along a tie-out system so they can relax outside without you needing to worry if they will wander off.

We have two dogs that have access to the yard near the boathouse. You are welcome to give them some love if you see them, knowing they do not go past the front driveway road due to their wireless fence collars. We also have a neighbor black lab that likes to do a 'fly-by' through our yard when he escapes from his parents- his name is Harley. Very friendly and really just wants to run and play:)
No dogs on couch or plaid rocker. Pets must be in a secured kennel if left in the boathouse alone. Please bring towels for your pet if you plan to have them enjoy the lake.
