Crystal Beach, Ontario cottages for sale

At D. W. Howard Realty, we notice that many prospective buyers exploring the area are surprised at the number of homes for sale in Crystal Beach.

Many of the homes here are summer cottages. While owning a cottage can be a satisfying long-term investment, owners can become unwilling or unable to keep up with taking care of a second home. The family probably used the cottage quite a bit when they first purchased it, but over the years the family has perhaps lost interest or doesn’t have the time to get up to the cottage as much as they would like to, thus the decision to put it on the market.

If you drive or walk through the grids and circles of Crystal Beach Ontario streets, you may be struck by the contrast between some of the original structures in need of repair and the houses that have been renovated or rebuilt. Many investors have (and continue to) buy run-down homes at a great price,  and “flip” the house.  Many summer cottages have been updated, winterized and re-sold as year-round homes.  Timing and location are everything.  Contact D. W. Howard Realty now to discuss factors that would affect your decision to buy or sell. Our agents have extensive local knowledge, and want to help you achieve your real estate dreams.

Crystal Beach features two gated communities, the Tennis & Yacht Club, and the Crystal Beach Hill Association.  Also nearby for the nature lover is the stunningly beautiful gated community of Point Abino.

There is new development coming to Crystal Beach! Click here to learn about the Crystal Beach Gateway Project or contact us to learn about other subdivisions in the works if you are thinking of buying new.

Crystal Beach lies on the north shore of Lake Erie and is within the Town of Fort Erie, and is an easy 20 minute commute from Buffalo NY, Niagara Falls, Welland and Port Colborne ON You will love the small town charm and the beach-casual atmosphere of owning a Crystal Beach property.  Walk to an incredible white sand beach that will make you feel like you’re on vacation all year long.  (Yes, there are several months when it is too chilly to lay out in your bikini, but there are an increasing number of excellent winter activities and festivals in the area too!  Niagara Falls ON is becoming more and more of a year-round destination.)

Why choose property within a gated community? Security, as well as peace and quiet. In cottage country, you never know who might be renting the neighbouring house for the weekend, but within a gated community only those authorized by property owners or the gate keeper can get in.   There is also a level of prestige to owning property within Point Abino, as this area was traditionally known as the exclusive retreat of Buffalo’s wealthiest and most successful professionals.  You can fully escape from the hustle and bustle, and yet be within 30 minutes of Buffalo, Niagara Falls, Fort Erie, Port Colborne and Welland. Minutes from excellent boating clubs and golf courses.

Concerned about common fees? The association fee covers gate security, street maintenance, snow removal, deeded private beach access, and ranges from $800-$1,400 per year depending on the assessed value of the house. Note that Point Abino homes are freehold homes, this is not a condominium corporation, so the association fee is much lower than a typical condo fee.  Internet access is not a problem anymore even in this rural location: WiFi is available from a transmitter located at the top of the lighthouse.

Point Abino Lighthouse Reflections

Originally constructed in 1918 by the Canadian Government the Point Abino Lighthouse stands 95 feet tall and has just undergone a major facelift. The Point Abino Lighthouse is located behind the gates, but is open for public tours at certain times on certain days. Contact D. W. Howard Realty now to find out more about Point Abino and the lighthouse.


Fort Erie is full of delightful hidden gems!  Here’s another reason to move to the Niagara area, and Fort Erie in particular: Garrison Little Theatre is a community group that has been entertaining Niagara and Buffalo audiences since 1986.
