This is a cottage and was everything we expected. It was exactly as described. The view was spectacular. The only thing missing for us was air conditioning, but we would stay here again regardless.

avatar

We really enjoyed our stay here. Nice view of the bay and spacious little cottage. The beds could be a little more comfortable but it was well worth the money.

avatar

We truely had a great time. The house was well equipped and we wanted for nothing.

avatar

Cottage was beautiful. Clean and much more spacious than expected! Traveled with our two teenagers, two dogs, husband and myself. Plenty of room. Bathroom was very clean which is such a plus. Stairs are a bit of a hike but can be avoided if you ask permission to access from other properties! Jan was a pleasure to work with!

We (two couples and friend) had been there from June 30 to July 3. I like this place. There is quiet outside and clean inside. The beach and good parks are close and easily accessible. The manager Jan is a nice and helpful person.

Some negative comments: There is no Internet, only fans instead air-conditioning, the door inside bathroom didn't lock. Generally I recommend to spend there a few days.

Wish there were a patio or porch that you could sit on and look out at the water- the cottage in front of the little place blocks almost the whole scene. Wonder if no one is in the big house in front of the little place if sitting on that deck is OK? That would be terrific!

It is exactly what it says it is and my 12 and 10 year olds thought it was a cool old place. Need I say more? We usually trek to the East coast oceanside to get this experience. Waves lapping the sandy beach, beautiful Lake Ontario is within sight and sound. Love waking up to that. A short walk to the end of the driveway, maybe 4 car lengths long, and there is gorgeous Sodus Bay at the other end of the street. Restaurants and shops all within walking distance. It was exactly what we needed and the shortest drive to get to it that we have ever had. We will be back!

We had a very relaxing week. We loved the tiny beach house and the location very much! The view of the home in front, which I believe has the same owners as the beach house, could be tremendously improved. There was a very unattractive gazebo that was in significant disrepair and several brick piles lying around, both of which were an eye sore and distraction from the view of the lake.

A was a bit frightened by some previous reviews, did I make a mistake? When I pulled up and unlocked the door, I was pleasantly surprised. It is what it is---a cottage --not to be confused with a Condo. The sleeping loft was PERFECT for my grand teens, and I was happy to see a futon in the small living area for me. It's a perfect location with teens because they have plenty of "walk to" options (Beach, Snack Bar, downtown) . It was a perfect location for me as a base for photography day trips to Chimney Bluffs, Sterling Nature Center, Oswego, and lots of country

roads. The bathroom is very small, but it was only a week, I could make due. Unfortunately this is the summer of rain, and there were no campfires or roasted marshmallows for us. The grandteens thought it was "so cute" and that made me happy. Bottom Line, it was within my budget, and I felt the money was well spent, we made many great memories.

I rented this cottage last year, and liked it (and the area) so much that we came back this year. If you carefully read the description of this property and study the pictures, you will see that is an old boat house that has been converted into a small efficiency cottage. It is NOT the Taj Mahal. If that is what you are looking for, then keep searching. However, if you want a basic cottage as a place to hang your hat while you are outside enjoying all that Sodus Point has to offer, then you may want to consider this property. It is the perfect size for a single person, couple, or small family. The fact that we could bring our dog was a HUGE plus.

This cottage does have a small kitchen with a dorm sized refrigerator and a small electric stove/oven. A propane camp grill is also provided. Both are sufficient for making camp style meals. The bathroom is tiny and may be uncomfortable for people of larger stature. But again, it has all the basics. I love the open, upstairs sleeping loft. It has lots of windows on all sides which allow for a very nice cross breeze. With this many windows, expect it to get bright in the mornings. The manager has placed darker curtains over many of the windows to try to help this and to allow for greater privacy. There is no air conditioning, so it does get quite warm during the day. My experience has been that the cross breeze and fans that have been provided do a decent job cooling the loft down at night.

Very clean, well supplied house, great sleeping accommodations, would definitely recommend!!!!

We hated to leave!

There are many positives about this property. First is Jan, she is local and easy to reach and had fresh berries waiting for us when we arrived. The location is great, beautiful view of Lake Ontario and very serene. I do wish there was a little more sun on the deck it only gets morning sun. Therefore when it rained it took a while for it to dry out. There is no air conditioning which I thought would be an issue but even with the August heat we were comfortable with the fans provided. The outside lived up to the pictures but the inside while charming really needs some updating. The couches had cushions under the cushions. My biggest pet peeve was the coffee maker. It was a $10 mr coffee maker that was missing the basket. Had to use multiple filters or the grounds ended up in my coffee, buy a new pot. All in all we had a good time and it was worth the money, I just think next time I’ll spend a little more.

Had a fabulous time. Being so close to the lake was perfect - and loved the cooling breezes off the lake at the height of summer. Great space for our two dogs too.

avatar

Not a fancy place but it is extremely relaxing, comfortable and a beautiful setting. It's one of the best vacations our family has taken. We loved the fact the deck was enclosed so we didn't worry about our dog. The sunrises, sunsets, fresh air, and water were absolutely amazing. Jan went out of her way to make sure we knew the property and ensure we had great tips about the area. We did not want to leave. Thank you for sharing your place with us.

This was the perfect vacation spot on so many levels. We'll describe some of them:

1) We were worried about having fun for all of our kids (ages 1.5, 4, 11, 13). They all had a blast. Skipping rocks, finding interesting rocks, kayaking, swimming, hiking....nobody was left out. There were kayaks, a canoe, a row boat, a paddle boat, and life jackets of all sizes on site for us to use.

2) The landscape is truly breathtaking. You're sleeping 32 steps away from the water. The sunrises and sunsets are incredible!

3) Near other great spots to explore. Chimney Bluffs are 20 minutes away, Sodus Point with a lighthouse and beach is 10 minutes away, Niagara Falls is a little over 2 hours away. Those were the places we went and enjoyed a lot.

4) The house is small (2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom), but we all fit well. Everyone was comfortable.

5) Jan is really great to work with. She was very responsive to our questions before the trip and during the trip. She gave us a tour of the house when we arrived.

To summarize: This was a great vacation spot for my whole family. We can't wait to go back again!

My family, including my in-laws, stayed here recently and we cannot wait to come back next year! The home was so quiet, clean, and the kitchen was stocked with items I wouldn't even think of having-down to a kuerig! We stayed here toward the end of September and although it was too chilly to utilize the lake right in the back yard, we had an absolutely amazing time. The water is so peaceful, and the entire setting was just unbelievable. The scenery was spectacular! We cannot wait to plan our visit back. Thank you so much for the awesome experience, and for the memories we will never forget here!

Wonderful relaxing getaway. Kitchen was well stocked and we loved the movie collection!

avatar

It was a perfect getaway for myself and my daughter. The cottage was very well equipped, was clean,relaxing. I would recommend this place to family and friends!

avatar

The view is amazing. I loved the entire area where apple trees were blooming for as far as one can see and farm animals roam free on the land. People are super friendly.

The house has 3 bedrooms with one being master with its own bath and that was the room I chose. I spent a lot of time in the living room and kitchen mesmerized by Lake Ontario, which is so huge it looks like an ocean. The name Sodus actually is Native American and means silvery water and the water changes colors throughout the day depending on the weather.

Came to visit the area and Kayak. The house was everything my group needed and offered much needed peace and quit from the hustle of the city. Beautiful view of the lake and sunsets.

avatar

As we entered the cottage it was inviting and comfortable. The view is breath taking

As a welcome there was a pumpkin spice loaf in the refrigerator from Burnap’s farm. We had everything we needed, extra blankets, pillows and towels. We just left and on our ride home, we were planning for our next trip back to the Cottage. We didn’t want to leave. It was so peaceful. We had a great time! Thank you Jan!!

avatar

Wonderful!! We plan on coming again next summer!

avatar

Clean property with everything we were looking for on our weekend away. Our first experience with a vacation rental and it was a pleasurable experience!

avatar

This is our kind of heaven. The woods, the lake, the breeze, the sky -- and the quiet seclusion. We enjoyed our short stay very much!

Waking up in the morning and looking out to see the lake was unbelievable. people around sodus very friendly. We loved to watch the chipmunks playing around on the deck. We visited the old girl scout campground was very interesting. Jan is a very sweet lady. Thank you for letting us spend time at your home. Hope to make it up next year for another stay. I wound recommend any one interested to stay at jans secret cove pine cabin.
