Hanford Bay cottage description

No matter which season you choose for your stay, you won't be disappointed in our charming, family-friendly community. You can relax on one of Lake Erie's most beautiful beaches as you watch eye-popping sunsets and the breath-taking beauty of our ever-changing lake. Then return to the cottage to sit on a secluded terrace in your own large back yard. Here families can play ball, little kids can play in a playhouse, and all can enjoy meals at the picnic table that is provided. This year round vacation home is only 175 footsteps from the beach with only 12 stair steps to a wide sandy beach. In the other direction, you are 150 steps from tennis and basketball courts and from a new playground, all within a family-friendly community where kids can play outdoors and ride bikes safely. There are wine festivals and other weekend festivals in near-by villages and cities, and bountiful fishing in the lake. Great beach walking, fishing, kayaking, boating, bird watching. In addition, there are near-by wineries, casinos, and golf courses; walking distance to marinas, restaurants and nightclubs; 25 minutes from SUNY Fredonia; 45 minutes from the Chautauqua Institution and from downhill skiing; 45 minutes from live theater and from Galleria Mall; 60 minutes from Niagara Falls. This location also accommodates many more activity needs - just ask us!
A well equipped kitchen provides most of what is needed to prepare family meals, and take-out lists are available too! Grocery shopping is 1/2 - 2 miles away, and a deli is within 2/10ths mile. Fine dining is also available in the area.
The largest bedroom has a queen sized bed, the second bedroom has a double bed, and the third bedroom has twin beds. In the living room there is a sofa-bed and a futon.
The house has a new furnace for year-round comfort, new electical service, and new plumbing.


Keywords: Single family home on spacious property 175 footsteps from the beach. Wineries, great fishing, swimming, beach walking; and close to wine trails, golf courses and many weekend festivities.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: We are a semi-retired couple with 5 children and 6 grandchildren who spend a part of their summers with us. We live across the street from this property and are available to provide information and advice about living in this beautiful area of Western New York. We love entertaining, jazz, boating, waterskiing, walking, and biking, and we would love to welcome you to one of the best kept secrets on Lake Erie. We frequently travel in winter, spring or fall, but never in summer. WNY summers are simply the best, and it would be a crime to miss one!

              Why the Owner Chose Hanford Bay:
              Before making this our year-round home, we vacationed here every summer from the time we were children. It is such a unique, friendly, caring community, and we feel privileged to be a part of it.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Watching a sunset in the evening, sighting one of our resident bald eagles in early morning, listening to crashing waves during a storm or quietly lapping waters most of the time are sensations that can't be equaled elsewhere. This community provides so much in terms of recreation, and in less than an hour's drive you can be in the heart of the architectural wonders of Buffalo where some of the best restaurants anywhere can be found; or in Chautauqua County wine country, or in one of several ski areas. Lake Erie fishing is prized by many, with bass, perch, walleye, and coho salmon topping the list of species caught in this lake.
