Property description

If you want a serene setting close to Lake Ontario come stay here!
Relive your cottage memories! Come to relax, to chat around the outdoor fireplace, sun bathe, hike, or read a good book!
This 1100 sq. ft. heated year-round cottage is on a cul-de-sac along the shores of Lake Ontario. It's located in Hilton New York - a beautiful northwestern suburb of Rochester, New York. Located far enough away to enjoy a secluded retreat from everyday life, but close enough to experience all that Rochester has to offer.
The cottage is nestled on the south side of the road, on a private 50x250 lot backing up to dense wood. The lake is on the north side of the road. There is little traffic. There is a beach area that has neighborhood walk-in privileges to use. This unique location consists of cottages, and homes. It is a 2 minute walk from the Braddock Point Lighthouse which is now a Bed and Breakfast and holds intimate wedding ceremonies. There is also a tiny public green space with a fantastic vantage point to watch the sunset next to the lighthouse.
Time moves in different increments at the lake. There are carefree days that are about families, fun and togetherness. There are easy mornings moving into afternoons by way of lunch from the grill.

Additional Information: Conveniently located 2 minutes from the scenic Lake Ontario Parkway, this serene setting provides fresh clean air and the opportunity to kick back, and take things a bit more slowly.

Inside the cottage is spotlessly clean and airy with new paint and decorations throughout.
This is an optimal place to surround yourself with peace and quiet. The cottage is the perfect mix of a lakeside retreat and a woodland cabin. The private setting is enhanced by a deep lot, surrounded by trees, and the benefit of not being sandwiched between neighboring houses.

The outdoor fireplace provides a beautiful ambiance to relax by.

This is a delightful gem of a place to get away to unwind. Whether it is quiet solitude and reflection or days filled with activities you will find it all here.

Included at no extra charge: high speed Internet connection for guests with laptops, digital phone which allows free local and long distance calls in the U.S.A., and cable television.

Additional Things to do:: Metro Rochester is within a 30 minutes drive. There are great restaurants, theaters, Rochester Redwings baseball, Rhinos soccer, planetarium, science museum, a zoo, and night clubs. There are various festivals throughout the year.
Universities - State University College at Brockport -25 minutes, The University of Rochester-30 minutes, Rochester Institute of Technology-30 minutes, Saint John Fisher College -40 minutes Six Flags, Darien Lake Amusement and Water Park is 45 minutes away. Seabreeze Amusement park is 25 minutes away. Letchworth State Park called the 'Grand Canyon of the East' is 1 hour away.
Niagara Falls is 90 minutes away. View the mighty falls in various locations, take a trip on the Maid Of The Mist to get a close up look, and visit the casino ! Take the scenic route to the Falls and visit several wineries on the Niagara Wine Trail along the way.
The Finger Lakes Region is about an hour away - There are over 80 wineries to choose from in a scenic environment.

Owners comments: Summer of 2005 was the first time we offered the cottage for rent after two years renovating it! We have been blessed to meet wonderful guests from many different States and even Europe.
We had very favorable feedback. Guests comment on how spacious it is and that the rooms are much bigger than the photos show!

We delight in welcoming guests of every age. Our goal is to make you feel snug and immediately at home in our cottage.

We offer a 10% discount off of weekly and daily rates for 2 people or less with no overnight guests!

Hilton is a beautiful place to visit anytime of the year. Enjoy the chartreuse springs, golden summers, scarlet autumns and the snow white winters. Rent our cottage for an old fashion stress-free vacation away from day to day distractions. You will not be disappointed.
Hope to hear from you!
Ron and Mary
