Port Ontario house description

For those who like to participate in the salmon fishing run in late summer and fall, you can enjoy a beach house located right in the middle of the action, at the very mouth of the Salmon River and directly across from the Lighthouse Marina. With Lake Ontario at your doorstep, you can see all the fishing boats trolling for salmon in the lake and see salmon surfacing as they run up the river. Some days are windy, some are calm, many are sunny and some are brisk, but stay for a week in September or October and you will enjoy the entire experience. In May and June, the action shifts to Brown Trout and Smallmouth Bass later in June. No matter what the month, or the mix of weather, the fishing is always great, and you will love being on the beach, surrounded by sand dunes, and enjoying the many faces and ever-changing moods of the lake. The house is maintained in a beach-friendly style that allows for the accommodation of pets. The large living/dining room hosts a large beach-stone wood-burning fireplace, and the closed-in front porch is comfortable even on cooler, windy spring and fall days. The 4 airy upstairs bedrooms sleep as many as 8, with 2 queen, 2 double and 3 twin beds, with an air conditioned downstairs master bedroom featuring a king bed and full lakeview. River dockage is available if you have a boat of your own, with launch facilities at the Lighthouse Marina and at the NY State launch site upriver. You don't need to be a fisherman to enjoy the upcoming fall experience at the mouth of the Salmon River. The beach and river is beautiful in the spring and fall, and a romantic spot for couples to enjoy while watching all that is happening at the river then. But if you are a fisherman, what better place to stay - right in the middle of the action....

          There is perhaps no better sandy beachfront location on all of Lake Ontario, with views directly across the water west to gorgeous sunsets that are different every day of the year. And adding to the sense of isolation and beauty of this place, this beach house is at 'land's end', at the pier and point where the Salmon River meets the lake. With Brown Trout fishing in Spring, Smallmouth Bass and Perch fishing in Summer, Chinook and Coho salmon fishing all through Summer and Autumn, culminating in the dramatic September & October salmon and steelhead run up the Salmon River, there is no more exciting place for those who love fresh water sport fishing. And to enjoy all that while staying in the northernmost beach cottage on the point, at the very mouth of the Salmon River, directly across the river from the Lighthouse, is very special. Being at the beach in the early season (May & June) is tremendous, as often you will share the beach with only seagulls and other shorebirds. The beach is all sand, in the water and out, directly out the front door of your house on the beach. In Late Spring and in Autumn, as ducks and geese trade up the Lake and the air chills, the cottage is a perfect place for a fishing party to stay, returning to comfort on the beach after a day on the lake or river. Or, for those who don't like to fish, but love to view the action, the cottage is a comfortable place to enjoy the natural beauty of the lakeshore, watching the fishing charters come and go from the harbor. Day trips to Sackets Harbor, the Thousand Islands, Kingston, Syracuse, Old Forge, the Salmon River Hatchery and other surrounding sites are all fun activities when looking for fun other than on the beach and the water.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2012

          About the owner: Our extended family has been enjoying the Salmon River Point since the 1930s, and we now have many family members and close family friends who own summer homes on the Point and further up the river along Pine Grove Road. Having grown up at the lake, enjoying the fishing, water sports, restful days in the sun and sand, marveling at the way the wind, waves and lake storms can entertain you, with rainy days spent working a jigsaw puzzle or reading a novel while enjoying views of the lake being some of our most memorable times. Or getting to stay up late roasting marshmallows over a beach fire, followed the next morning by a pancake breakfast after returning from fishing with our parents. Smallmouth bass and yellow perch fishing used to be the focus of our angling efforts, and those catches are arguably still the best tasting. But in the 1970s, the Salmon fishery developed and since then, Brown Trout can be caught in abundance along the lake shore as the water warms in May and June. The fishing charters run all summer long out to the deep waters of the lake, many departing directly from the Salmon River Marina right across the river. In the fall, the fishing gets especially active in the river, as the salmon migrate to run upstream. Year after year, our families and friends have enjoyed this special place and all that it has to offer. We are now sharing this special place with a few others at times when our family cannot be at the lake. And so we make our beach house available from time to time, hopefully to be booked by the same families or groups of fishing friends year after year.

          Why the Owner Chose Port Ontario:
          The beach house that we own is unique in that it is the closest to the mouth of the Salmon River, bounded to the north by NY State Park property and the pier guarding the entrance to the harbor. The construction of the pier years ago initiated the creation of what is now an incredibly beautiful, sandy beach area (very unusual along Lake Ontario), right in front of our beach house and reaching well into the lake. That makes the shore perfect for beach walking and swimming, with no undertow in calm waters, and of course, in fresh water there is no salt or sharks, jellyfish, seaweed or similar saltwater negatives. Facing west, we frequently enjoy refreshing breezes off of the lake during the day and offshore breezes at night. The lake can entertain young and old alike as it roars on windy days, making it seem like you are on the ocean (but for the lack of saltwater), and with a blazing, stunning sunset over the water very likely to end your day. Retired and looking to come north a little earlier than usual in the spring, or looking to stay a little later in fall before heading south? Or maybe looking for a romantic time away from the kids, in a very special place? Or looking for a special place to take youngsters (grandchildren?) for an off-season beach experience? Our lakefront home is quite charming, romantic, and provides a wonderful getaway for adults who want to enjoy some quiet, tranquil, time connecting to the natural surroundings. And for fall fishermen who want to maximize their enjoyment of the lake and river, even when they are not out on the water, there is no better place. What could beat grilling your fresh daily catch and enjoying dinner on the beach, looking out over the lake?

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          In addition to the perfect beach location, with beautiful sunset views, the house is equipped with Cable HD TV and wireless high speed internet, so you can stay connected to the outside world, as much as you need to or want to....
