Great time on the bay.
Great time on the bay.
We were really looking forward to spending Labor Day weekend on the Bay so we made our reservations in May. Unfortunately the owner double booked. We were devastated at first but the owner more then made up for this by paying for a different rental for us for two nights until another cottage opened up, letting us use his pontoon boat free of charge for the week with no charge for fuel, Cheese and Wine were made available as well ( Nine bottles in fact.) . The owner was super helpful and very upset went they realized they had made a mistake. The property is as represented. Clean and well maintained. Hot tub on the beach, hammock , the waves on the beach side all made for a fantastic stay. The bedrooms were large and the kitchen had full stock of pots and pans and utensils. The owner was easy to get a hold of , and took great care of us providing infant swing and pack and play. Will definitely stay again in the future. Thanks for everything!! All in all a great time.

This is an amazing location - Lake Ontario on one side, with the sound of waves and Sotus Bay on the other side, with it's quiet view of cottages & boats. The owners are lovely people who work hard to make sure you have what you need. They even supply you with locally made cheese and bottles of wine. Such a nice touch. We plan on returning!

Great Rental - Some Things Are Over Advertised Though
Great Rental - Some Things Are Over Advertised Though
The cottage is in a great location and the owners are very nice people. It is a very unique spot at Cresent Beach and you can only get to the house by boat. Lake Ontario comes to the back of the house with a rocky beachfront and Sodus Bay comes to the front of the house with a sandy beachfront. We did have an excellent vacation and would highly recommend this cottage or other cottages from this owner to others. We plan to come back and visit or possibly explore other cottages in the area too. However, there are some things that aren't quite as advertised, that renters should be aware of: - Check in is at 4pm for all cottages being rented. We ended up waiting in line for about 1.5 hours with our two young kids in order to even get the pontoon boat ride to our rental. - You will be charged an extra $15 by the owner for boat gas, which isn't quite advertised, when you are issued your 14 foot boat for the week's transportation. Just unexpected is all. - It's sometimes difficult to get in touch with the owners. We mentioned we were bringing young kids with us and were told they would stop by with baby gear, items, etc., but were too busy to make the trip over. Not a deal breaker - we packed our own items any way! - The game and video selection was not shown to us or available in the rented location - so pack your own! - Washer and dryer hookups are at the cottages - but no actual washers and dryers. Was advertised as such and we had to make alternative laundry plans. - Kayaks and paddle boats were at our cottage when we first arrived. Within the first 48 hours of a week's stay, they were taken away from us and we no longer had access to these items. Was awkward how that happened when we were visiting in town, away from the house. - The "wine cellar" is really just a wine chiller that comes with four bottles of wine. We point these items out to help future renters of this property, as well as the owners. However, our vacation was phenomenal. The views from the house are amazing and our family had memories that we will never forget from this trip. Totally worth booking! The views are awesome and there are limited locations in this area with the dual beachfront.

This is our second time booking one of Scott and Martha's Cottage's and we love it. Everything is perfect for us! The location and the FISHING cannot get any better.

My girlfriend and I rented the "Lure" cottage for a week just to unplug and getaway...and that's exactly what we did. The cottage was clean, the hosts were wonderful, and having the lake on one side and the bay on the other...all we had to do was decide where we were going to swim and boat. We also brought our dog and she loved it and had some dog friends to hang out with while there. Absolutely recommend this place if you're looking for a little R&R.

We used this cottage along with another one and had a faulous time! Again everything was provieded for you and we just had to bring our own food! The back deck had a great view of the lake. The interior design was really neat. I would recommend this cottage for a getaway or family vacation!

A group of men from our church stayed in the Lure for a men's retreat. We had an incredible time. The cottage itself is beautiful and very clean. The view is second to none. All the amenities were provided and Scott and Martha were more than willing to help in any way they could. Our studies were accompanied by the rolling waves of Lake Ontario. Those that decided to fish during free time were richly rewarded with beautiful large mouth bass. We walked the beach, rode on the paddle boat and explored with the motor boat. What more could you ask for, short of heaven?

We used The Lure cottage for part of our Women's Retreat this past weekend. It was wonderful. When we arrived the cottage was very clean. It is very comfortable and we loved the way it is decorated. It had a great kitchen with plenty of cupboard space. It was perfect for our retreat because there is a lot of beds up in the loft. There is also the big screened in porch with lovely furniture. The weather was sunny and we enjoyed fishing, walking, and going to the bluffs. Scott and Martha are wonderful, warm, loving, hosts. We wiff definitely be doing another retreat here.

Not so happy with the cottage
Not so happy with the cottage
The listing for this property isn't exactly accurate. While the photo shown displays a small portion of the Lure cottage, most of the picture shows the rental next door, which is very deceiving. The chairs, beach, etc. are all part of the cottage on the left. The land in front of the Lure was very murky and had black plastic tubing in the water, we weren't sure why. Also, more importantly, the water on the bay in front of the cottages was NEVER that clear. It is so entirely full of seaweed (growing and cut) that you couldn't see the bottom and it was only 3-4 feet deep. NO ONE would swim on this side of the house. The lake side of the house was beautiful but was so full of rocks that you HAVE to have water shoes to walk into the water. After about 15 ft, you'll find sand. The rocks are, I believe, to prevent erosion. It appeared that at one time there was some sort of screening or fencing around the rocks but all that was left was some rusty wires wrapped around some larger rocks on the shore so we had to be very careful in showing our children where to walk safely. I tried to bend some of the wires down because they were sticking up... I was not pleased. The inside of the house: VERY dirty. The walls had smashed mosquitoes and blood on them in many places, there were cobwebs and spider webs everywhere. There weren't any rugs anywhere in the house and when I asked for them so that we could wipe the sand off our feet before we went inside, we were told that no one had ever asked for rugs before and we never got one. The towel rod in the bath room kept falling down. All the kitchen cabinets smelled like mildew. There were no curtains in the main bedroom on ground level. The bed in this main room was a queen box spring on a metal frame with a full sized mattress on it. All of the pillows in the house were at least 10 years old, hard and just gross. The dirt in between the couch cushions proved the house hadn't been well cleaned in ages. There were no locks on the doors. There were bugs all over the inside of the house. The water for the house comes from a tube that leads directly into the bay and then thru a small filter, all exposed under the house. It was nasty. The owners of the property, and the property manager, Chris, were very nice. A brick of fresh local cheese and 2 bottles of wine were there upon our arrival - it just didn't make up for the feeling that we'd just paid a lot of money to stay in a house that felt like we were sleeping in a tent...

Owner response: We have all 5 star ratings with the exception of one four star and this one. I would like to address this review. The picture of the cottage is exactly acturate. Each cottage has 9-14 addirondack style chairs depending on the size of the cottage. I appoligize for the weeds on the Bay side this year. We have had a drought and the water level is the lowest it,s been since we have been here. We have extended free use of our marina to the county weed harvester crew so that they can cut and collect the weeds around our cottages. Lake Ontario beach front has smooth lake stones on the beach and 10-15 feet out in the water. From that point on, the bottom is all sand with not a rock to be found. The swimming is great! As far as the wire on the beach on the Lake side, There are some gabien baskets burried on the beach to stop erosion. With the water level being down this year, a heavy storm exposed a portion of a basket. We have since had that basket removed. As far as cobs webs on the beach. Our cleaners clean and remove cobs webs before each stay. We also spray one a month to keep the spiders down. Spiders and the beach go hand to hand. They are harmless and impossible to completely exterminate. The towel rod was fixed the same day it was brought to out attention. We have replaced all the pillows in this cottage and have checked and replaced any pillow in our other cottages that needed to be replaced. Thank you for your input as this is the best way for us to become aware of any problems so that we can correct them for our future guest. Amy, we are sorry you had a rough week with your own family issues ie: fighting loudly and your teen age daughter running off. I can understand why that could amplify anything your could find to complain about at the cottage. Martha and I work very hard to provide you with the very best vacation possible. Unfortunately, your personal happiness with you, your family and any guest you may be sharing the cottage with is not within our control. We are disappointed you felt compelled to take it out on our cottage but we also appriciate bringing to our attention the things that were within our power to correct. Sincelely, Scott and Martha
