The word Ontario means "Lake of Shining Waters", and Lake Ontario in New York State is certainly shining. One of the five Great Lakes, it stretches from the U.S. to Canada, and its sheer size is well worth the visit. There are so many options for adventure in this region, whether you prefer fishing, boating, kayaking, or even swimming in the warmer months. Close to the lake, there are multiple hiking and biking options, which explore the beautiful forests bordering the lake. And after a fun-packed day, head into town for some delicious farm-to-table local cuisine washed won with a glass of top-notch local wine. What could be better? Retiring to one of these unique vacation rentals at the end of the day, that's what! Choose from cozy cottages, luxurious rentals, and much more!
