Lewiston is a quaint, historical village as far west in Western NY, as it gets. We are located at the Niagara River between Niagara Falls, NY and Youngstown, NY. There are numerous parks and state parks to visit and numerous activities to participate in, finding something for everyones taste and preference. Canada (Ontario) is on the other side of the river; the borders are open again if you are fully vaccinated and you will find a vast expansion of options on both sides of the international border. Suggested Local Attractions:There is a lot of touristic attractions around here. Too many to list. Please search the internet for "Niagara Falls" (NY and Canada), "Niagara on the Lake" (CA), "Lewiston" (NY), and Buffalo, NY. If you want to venture a little farther you may want to include Toronto in your search. Proposed for Lewiston: https://stepoutbuffalo.com/road-trip-series-spend-day-lewiston-ny/
Vehicle Suitability Information
Separate Tow Vehicle Parking
Electric Hookup: 15A
Outdoor Cooking Allowed
No loud music, no excessive drinking and shouting. Keep your dog on a leash please - until tested compatible with our two puppies. No open fires. No running the generator after 10:00 PM. Just the standard rules of neighborly courtesy.
Access Road Conditions: This is a private home with a straight drive way and a concrete parking patch next to the house. You will have to reverse in (crossing a neighborhood road) and have to be a skilled reverser because it is not on a straight line. The final parking spot next to the house is tight (10' width max). If you are good in reversing it is not a problem (I reverse my pontoon boat in at the same spot all the time). If the weather is very wet it may be a problem because you have to traverse a grassy slope, which tends to get muddy and requires some ground clearance. The smaller your trailer, the easier is the getting in. 5th wheels do certainly not fit. There is a standard household 110 V outlet (15 A), which does not provide enough amps to run your air conditioner. There is also a water connection right there. The spot is not useful for extended vacations (we are in the center of the village) but good for one or two nights. Tow Vehicle Parking Details: Either on a grassy area next to the driveway or on a public parking lot (no charge) in walking distance.

Veland and Ann were the most gracious hosts ever! From their helpful tips, morning walks with my dog and theirs Wilbur, evenings talking on the porch, suggesting places that fit my philosophy of travel, right down to driving me around to show the village and scenery. I felt like they’re now lifelong friends as we had so much in common! This was the very best place in all my Boondockers Welcome travels!

I had a great stay in Lewiston and my hosts were very friendly! When I arrived my hosts provided me with some local maps and took some time to tell me about local places to eat and things to see in the area. They said that normally when it is warmer they like to sit and talk on the porch with their guests but when I arrived it was very cold and COVID was peaking again. I am grateful for the hospitality and kindness of my hosts!

Wieland is a real gentleman - very polite, kind, and a good communicator! He and his wife were very gracious and accommodating. They truly added to our Niagara Falls experience. Lewiston is a great small town. Highly recommend!

Wieland was beyond accommodating, friendly, and welcoming. He gave us wonderful suggestions on what to see and do while staying here. He engaged us in interesting conversation and was purely hospitable. We are very thankful for our time spent here and the friend we have gained. Everything was absolutely perfect.
