Welcome to Heron Hideaway, a retreat with rustic elegance surrounded by trees and overlooking a large, spring-fed pond. If you enjoy listening to bird calls, or spotting woodland animals such as deer, turkey, red fox and an occasional blue heron, the Heron Hideaway awaits you.
This fully equipped guest cottage is located in Victor, NY, an area known for its four-season tourist attractions. We are located midway between the Finger Lakes wineries and the city of Rochester with its many cultural events. Both are a short driving distance away. Within minutes you can shop at a 250 store mall complex or hike the Victor Trail System.
The Heron Hideaway guest cottage and our home share a 5 acre wooded lot. The two bedroom cottage was completely refurbished in 2010 with hardwood floors and a modern kitchen and bath. The living room has earth tones, natural wood furnishing and simple comfort. We call this area the Upper Roost. In 2013 we added a third bedroom in the downstairs walk out basement. We call this room the Heron Room. The Heron Room with bunk beds, half bath and an entertainment center is only rented out when a third bedroom is needed to accommodate a total rental party of 5 or 6 individuals.
If you wish to talk with friends, write a book, paint a picture or just take a nap, you will find the Heron Hideaway a perfect place to enhance your feelings of well being. The scenic deck can be enjoyed year round and is often the spot for morning coffee and afternoon refreshment with friends. In the evening, the fire pit provides a cozy sitting area to relax before retiring.
If you feel the need for exercise, just grab the canoe with a lifejacket and paddle in our large 80 by 150 foot pond. Walking is a pleasure on our country roads where you will see farmland, horse farms, and drumlins. When you return you may wish to eat at a nearby restaurant or grill on the deck.
It is our pleasure to make your stay at the Heron Hideaway happy and comfortable. We are eager to offer you verbal and as well as written information on the wide variety of recreational and cultural possibilities available in the Finger Lakes region.

About the owner: As a retired couple, we enjoy an active life style, which includes travel, outdoor sports and cultural activities. In the winter we cross country ski and in the summer we enjoy playing golf and sailing on Lake Ontario. We have travelled extensively in the US and abroad. We hope to make the Hideaway a welcoming and pleasant rest spot as you enjoy your travels.
Why the Owner Chose Victor: My husband and I built the guest home for my mother. She helped us raise our son and twin daughters. Since then family members and friends have lived in the Hideaway for short periods. Our son and one daughter live abroad. When they visit us with their young families, the Heron Hideaway is the perfect vacation spot for them. Within a 5 minute drive they can visit a playground, grocery store, favorite restaurant or shop in the area's largest mall.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Our guest house is located in a natural sanctuary providing a space for an individual retreat or social gatherings. Besides a family wedding and numerous birthday celebrations, the Heron Hideaway has hosted swimming, fishing, ice skating and star gazing parties. This idyllic setting has unlimited possibilities for enjoyment.
