Sandy Creek cottage description

Enjoy waterfront living in a completely remodeled, DOUBLE LAKEFRONT cottage. This 4+ bedroom home serves as the perfect location for a family vacation, fishing trip or winter wonderland adventure. We aptly named this property “Bayview” for the outstanding views of Sandy Pond from the second story deck. Walk the stairs from the rear of the home to an amazing view of Lake Ontario from a three-story tall deck atop natural sand dunes. Enjoy relaxing on the beach, fishing, biking, amazing sunsets and area attractions from one of a few homes in the area offering double waterfront views, a boat dock and amazing Lake Ontario sunsets.

The Experience: Start your morning with a cup of hot coffee on the deck overlooking beautiful Sandy Pond and conclude your day roasting marshmallows over a fire on the Lake Ontario beach. Some favorite activities at the cottage include:

•Spectacular Sunsets on Lake Ontario from the deck atop a natural sand dune
•Views of Sandy Pond from the front deck
•The private cove beach only accessible to 3 homes
•Swimming in Lake Ontario from the private beach. The water is very shallow up to about 20 yards from the beach making it more “kid friendly”
•Boating Lake Ontario and Sandy Pond. We often take trips to Henderson and Sackets Harbor. For those a bit more experienced with a larger boat; the Thousand Islands or Kingston, Ontario area is a great day trip from the house or Henderson Harbor. “Boater's Beach” is a long, all sand beach close to the home where the “locals” hang out on the beach.
•Fishing from the dock with the kids for Bass and Sunfish, Sandy Pond for Bass and Lake Ontario for Lake Trout and King Salmon. There is also an amazing Salmon Run on the Salmon River near Pulaski (20 minute drive).
•Fine Dining in Sackets Harbor (Tin Pan Galley or Sackets Brewing Co) or Rainbow Shores
•Watching the kids catch frogs on the pond
•Golf at The Elms Golf Course
Bicycling on the many scenic rural roads /Seaway Trail
•Short daytrips to Old MacDonald Farm, Local Wineries, Taking the ferry to Wolf Island/Kingston Ontario, Thousand Islands and the Adirondack Mountains
•Ice Cream with the family at “The Trolley”
•Bonfire on the beach after enjoying the sunset—Don’t forget supplies for Smores!

The Home:

•Location: On a private peninsula between Lake Ontario and Sandy Pond. Large lot with plenty of parking and flat area for a game of volleyball or soccer. The rear of the home backs to a sand dune with a deck that adjoins a third-tier deck atop the dune. The front of the home looks over Sandy Pond and has direct water access via a boating channel.

•Beach: Private Cove beach shared by three homes. The beach changes with the lake water level and weather. At times it is rocky, sometimes it is sandy, but one thing is certain—the privacy and views cannot be beat. The water is great for swimming and shallow enough for kids. When in the water, your feet will be on a nice sandy bottom.

•Boat Dock: There is a dock for this property on the canal accessing Sandy Pond; which will fit most 20 ft. boats or jet skis. Access to Lake Ontario from Sandy pond via nearby channel! There is access for kayaks as well.

•Decks: The West Deck is atop a sand dune with spectacular views of Lake Ontario. The East Deck has spectacular views of Sandy Pond. What more could you ask for?

•Kitchen: Everything in this kitchen is new from the cabinets to the appliances! We have the kitchen stocked with all of the basic cooking utensils and dinnerware.

•Family Room: Relaxing “L-shaped” leather couch with LCD SatelliteTV/DVD. Beautiful Catherdral Ceilings all in natural pine!

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: This property is our 'investment in the family'. We love vacationing with our family at Sandy Pond! Tom and Toni live in nearby Binghamton, NY and are avid boaters, nature lovers, and sunset critics!

              Why the Owner Chose Sandy Creek:
              Tom and Toni Dunn have vacationed at Sandy Pond for decades and were lucky enough to purchase their dream vacation home on Renshaw Bay Road. With a growing family and a bit of luck, we were able to purchase another vacation home in 2010 which allows us to host extended family at the lake. The Dunn's along with their 2 daughters and son joined together to purchase and completely remodel this property. Their kids travel from Florida and Virginia as much as they possibly can to vacation at Sandy Pond. We all love the beach, fishing and the many attractions in the area; but most of all it's the best place to just relax!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Unique benefits include: Double Waterfront, private beach, completely remodeled, two scenic decks and boat dock access. Outstanding bass, trout & salmon fishing! Numerous fishing derbies & renowned salmon run in the fall. Tug HIll Plateau is great in the winter for x-cross country skiing & snowmobiling!
