Kayaks and Boating

Enjoying the great outdoors is essential when coming to Grand Island. Kayaking on the waters of the Niagara River is one way you can escape from everyday life. Launch them directly from our beachfront and enjoy all of the wildlife you will encounter along the way. If you are a boater, we have a unique opportunity for you. With almost 100 feet of dock space available, our guests are given free access to mooring their boats with up to a 36” drafts at our B&B. This makes the South Bridge Bed and Breakfast a wonderful place to stay for more than a night or a weekend. With direct access to the Erie Canal to the East and Lake Erie to the West guests can bring their boats from almost anywhere in the world.

Biking the Island

If bicycles are your thing we have a few you can borrow, or bring your own to enjoy the 23 mile circle ride around the island that will take you from the sight of Buffalo, NY in the South to mist rising from Niagara falls in the North, to long vistas of our Canadian neighbors to the West, and the gateway to The Erie Canal in Tonawanda, NY to the East. Along the way you can visit Beaver Island State Park at the extreme southern tip of the Island where a public golf course and beach and picnic areas are available. At the Northern tip of the Island is Buckhorn State Park where there are more chances to see wildlife and view migrating waterfowl.

Guest Reviews

We just left a long weekend stay at Southbridge and it was fabulous! Perfect location, amazing river views, peaceful and relaxing suite. The suite really was our home away from home while in Western NY visiting family and friends. The suite was cozy, extremely clean and had every amenity! Look no further if you are traveling on business, pleasure or just want a weekend getaway.

They went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed and breakfast was delicious! Fully cooked to order breakfast, fresh juice, fruit and coffee. They even catered to my 3 year old niece who loves her greek yogurt with strawberries, honey and cinnamon :)

Not only did we enjoy our stay this past weekend but we really enjoyed getting to know the wonderful owners of Southbridge! Until next time....
