About the owner: The owners both grew up on the Finger Lakes and have spent a great deal of time with their families on Canandaigua Lake. The Sandy Beach Escape property has been in the family for many years. We hope you enjoy it as much as we are!
Why the Owner Chose Canandaigua: Canandaigua Lake is located in the Finger Lakes in a beautiful area. Sandy Beach Escape is located set back in a cove, providing a safe area for families to enjoy swimming, boating, water sports and relaxation.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Proximity to town and attractions is the best! Don't waste time in your car!! In this area, the lake's sandy bottom makes it perfect for fun and games in the water. Sandy Beach Escape's dock has water that is about 3 1/2 feet deep and gradually gets deeper allowing for swimmers to have fun without worrying about being in deep water. Having a medium depth and a sandy bottom, allows the water a chance to warm up and make swimming very comfortable. The neighbors are friendly and the road is private.
