Beautiful location and home
We had a great time at the paddle inn. The house is adorable and very comfortable. We were a bit surprised to find that there was no stove, but there are plenty of good places in Fredonia to dine. Overall, we had a fantastic weekend and would stay here again!

5/5 Excellent

Heaven on earth is on Heron Island
The photos of this property don't even do the majesty of it justice. This has hands down been the best Air BnB experience of my life. The location, the view, the amenities, attention to detail and cleanliness were beyond my expectations. What blew us away most of all was the graciousness and attentiveness of Rodney and Lisa who have poured their heart and soul into this property. They went above and beyond to create an unforgettable, unmatchable vacation experience. Once you cross over the bridge and onto the island, be prepared to be immersed in the magic that is Paddle Inn on Heron Island.

5/5 Excellent

Stunning, peaceful, remarkable and very reasonable
I received this stay as a 50th bday gift from my husband. I have family on the other side of the lake- they are in their 60s. We were here for friendship, fun, and some peace from everything going on in the world. Everything we wanted was achieved and still ongoing :). I love that this is so much more then an island stay with generic lodging. Everything was thoughtfully planned and set up for convenience, as well as, safety. From the safety Station as we enter (wipes, sanitizer,and room for additional supplies) to the sign on the loft indicating low ceilings (my son is 6’4 so we know the pains), to just all the happy, personal decorations and touches. I don’t want to ruin any surprises but this place is COOL! They have bikes, canoe, kayaks, grill, fire pit, benches- with cup holders by the lake and excellent instructions for everything and of course, more fun and beautiful touches all throughout the property. Also it’s a little over an hour to Niagara and so many other wonderful attractions.. I’m going to skydive on one of these trips.... they torture you by flying around Niagara first... I jumped once before and think I’d prefer the tour after the jump lol. Anyway, my plan is to rent bi annually as this stay was amazing! and I believe a summer stay is necessary (we already booked :) and then in the fall when the colors are even more brilliant than right now. Finally, I am blessed and have traveled a great deal. I had to go to San Diego about 5 times per year for many years and I often rented VRBOS as my son would be with me and they are more personal. This is truly at the top of my favorite Stays...When I go to hotels and VRBOS I NEVER forget cleaning supplies, Alexa, a popcorn maker and extra paper towels and a candle. I didn’t need the cleaning supplies here ... and I’m picky - hotels are usually more odorous then vrbo so the candle was NOT needed but who doesn’t love a candle? Anyway, Alexa was perfect (she’s singing to me now as the sun shines upon me)... I am sure everyone would fall in love with this place if they got the opportunity to stay! I’m enamored and looking at land on the lake :)

Another wonderful stay
My second visit to the Paddle Inn was as amazing as my first. The owners have made sure everything is safe during the COVID era by providing disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizer, and a socially distance check-in. The Paddle Inn is a little oasis and I can’t wait to go back!

5/5 Excellent

October stay
This cottage is beautiful and very comfortable. The property is well maintained. The views of the lake are fantastic. Looking to book another stay in 2021.
