Neighborhood overview We are located in the 'Buffalo Avenue Historical Bed & Breakfast District' - these homes were built in the late 1800s to early 1900s. Our neighbors are very friendly (if they're not disturbed by loud noises) and there are only 3 other houses on our beautiful, brick-lined street (Hillcrest). One of our neighbors is the beautiful, Hillcrest Inn! Getting around You will be able to walk to most everything downtown including restaurants, Seneca Niagara Casino, Niagara Falls State Park, Maid of the Mist, Cave of the Winds, Hard Rock Cafe; you will not have to pay for parking downtown since you will be close enough to all the attractions! There are also trolleys that you can access from the State Park to take you around at a minimal cost. The Aquarium of Niagara Falls is a 5-minute drive; my toddlers love it! Other things to note We have a keyless entry/alarm system which is easily armed and disarmed by the guest check-in code you will receive. We will provide directions for access after booking.
