              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1982

              About the owner: I am the youngest of 4 siblings who own this cottage. We are a large and loving extended family and this was Grandmas and Grandpas cottage until 2010 when they passed away leaving it to my Brothers and sister and I. We are owners and already were sharing with one another and now YOU! Watch the video on this site if you want to see me,specifically. I live in Rochester NY and love sharing our cottage and helping people find the many fun activities around the area.

              Why the Owner Chose Sodus Point:
              The Ferry family is large and close knit. Our parents purchased the property over 30yrs ago with the idea of fixing it up for retirement. Over the years we have loved visiting and over 30 years we have become a pretty large group who has spent a great deal of time trying out all the activities and restaurants in the area. Two or the four siblings who own the cottage live locally near Rochester but our larger family is spread from San Diego to Fla and NYC. We all LOVE to come back to Sodus and bring our many kids and now grand kids.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The Sprongs Bluff area, a small cove set into Lake Ontario, is remote and beautiful. We love that we have a huge lot, beautiful sunsets and LOTS of space. The little set of cottages here are completely surrounded by NYS forever wild parkland. The old GirlScout camp next door was also purchased by NYS and turned into Beachwood Sate Park. We have a private path leading back there. Beachwood has Maxwell Creek running through it as well as Maxwell Bay. This makes for great Canoe and Kayak trips into the Maxwell Creek area. Bald Eagles nest on the point and beauty and tranquility surround you. Lastly when you want to eat out, get a fishing charter, enjoy a drink and entertainment, walk a sandy beach and long pier a quick 3-4mi. drive to Sodus Point and additional fun can easily be had. Also we are about 3-4mi. in the other direction to Sodus village for a post office, grocery store,library, bank and more restaurants. We think we have the perfect spot to enjoy peace, beauty quiet and a just about any fun activity.
