  • Fish and Family

    "We had a great time at Xanadu! Our group consisted of 7 adults and 4 children. The set up of the bedrooms and sleeper sofas were just right for our group. When they say it "Sleeps 10-14", they mean it! You really can accomodate everyone. The dock was big enough for all of us to enjoy, with a nice bench at the end to enjoy watching the activity on the bat. The kids fished off that dock and had a great time! There is gradual entry into the water from the shore, as well as a ladder at the end of the dock for the more adventurous divers of our group! We had several email exchanges with the owner prior to arrival and she was always prompt and helpful with her answers. The house is located at a beautiful part of the bay and has a great view of the bluffs across the water. There is a downhill walk to the steps that lead to the dock. As my 4 year old nephew said, "This lawn makes me want to run!" Parking is very adequate. We had 4 vehicles and there was plenty of room. We had guests one evening and they were also able to park with no difficulty. A NICE BONUS - there is wi-fi available that wasn't detailed in this listing. A nice surprise for all of us. There is a nice firepit, so make sure you bring some firewood to enjoy s'mores! We were able to lay on the grass and look up at the Perseid meteor shower. The night sky is gorgeous from Xanadu! We used the gas grill several times and it was large enough to cook for all 11 of us. Make sure you stop in town at the ice cream shop next to Bayview Grocery store. Great prices and yummy ice cream treats! We also enjoyed Fair Haven State Park. The beach is great because there is shade at the pier end and plenty of sand for sand castles. Lifeguards are on duty during the day. If you go into the park after 6pm, you can drive up to the bluffs and look for deer. We saw several! There are two nice playgrounds there - one at the pier end of the beach and one on the bluffs. I would highly recommend Xanadu as a vacation rental! Enjoy the beauty of the bay and the comfort of a lovely house!"

  • Place for all interests

    "We were fortunate to find such a perfect place on short notice.We could fit all the family members together in one place and not feel crowded or inconvenienced in the least. The porch gave us a great gathering place and we spent most of our time there, but the common rooms are spacious enough for the same use.The house has been meticulously restored and decorated. I am more the fisherman type so I would probably stay at one of the smaller, simpler cottages on my own, but I'm sure some of our group enjoyed the more luxurious atmosphere of this house.Since it is on the property of a working marina boating and fishing opportunities are close at hand, and it's interesting just to sit by the water and watch the coming and going. We will no doubt return."

  • Get together with friends!

    "Thiw was our second year staying at "Summer Hill" and we loved it this year as much as last year. Plenty of lawn space for yard games, close proximity to the beach, and a great view of the bay! What more could you ask for. The house is cozy with two enclosed outdoor porches to enjoy in the evening and a full functional kitchen. The outdoor shower is a great way to start the day. We will be there again next year without a doubt!"

  • Perfect Cottage and Location

    "I cannot express enough how perfect this place is for our large, extended family gathering. Between young children and adults, we had around 15 people and there is more than enough room both inside and outside. This was our second year in a row spent at David and Vivian's beautifully decorated and meticulously clean cottage. The photos on this site do not do justice to what is has to offer. The sceened in porch was perfect for meals and relaxing. All of the sleeping rooms are also incredibly comfortable. The best part for us, is the 5 min walk to the large, well-maintained Fair Haven Beach State Park. Our kids love the beach as well as the huge playground in the park(also within 4 min walk). You can walk to Little Sodus Bay and Lake Ontario to fish in no time at all. The front and back yard of the cottage are very large and perfect for kids (and adults) to play. At night, we enjoyed our time in front of the outdoor fireplace taking in the starry skies. David and Vivian are the epitome of gracious hosts and they do all they can to make you feel at home. I would recommend this cottage 10 out of 10 time."
