Beautiful cottage on five acres, one-half mile from the Fair Haven Beach State Park with beaches, boating, fishing, hiking and access to both Little Sodus Bay and Lake Ontario.
The cottage is extremely private with large yards, orchard, pine trees and woods; the cottage is two stories, each with separate bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens - so ideal for two families vacationing together; great for kids, couples, family reunions, fishermen.
There is a heater, suitable for cool autumn and spring nights but is not adequate to provide heat in freezing temperatures.

Summerhill cottage is a family cottage and has been in the family since 1954. The family uses it year round but it is available for rent in June, July, September and October. We are a family of 6 siblings, and with our spouses, children and grandchildren we number 25. We live in Delaware, New York, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, New Mexico and China. Every year we get together along with an assortment of cousins and celebrate the 4th of July as well as 4 family birthdays. Many of us manage to come for a week on our own as well as help to open and close the cottage.
Why Kathy chose Sterling
When we gather for our family reunions here we really need space to spread out and we can do that here. This house has been in my family for nearly 63 years. My Grandfather was a preacher in the village for a few years in the '50's and fell in love with this property. He wanted something for his children and grandchildren to enjoy. We now spend many happy days here throughout the year. What we appreciate most is the ability to get away from our busy lives to a quiet, private retreat with a great view of the water, and reconnect with family and friends.
What makes this Cottage unique
Sitting out on the benches and chairs overlooking Little Sodus Bay, Lake Ontario and the sunsets is one our favorite things to do. There is plenty for children to do, playing on the swingset and jungle gym. And there's always lots of fun going to the beach. Fair Haven Beach State Park boasts 2 sandy beaches, picnic areas overlooking Lake Ontario, a playground, snack bar and canoes and paddleboats. This area is also a favorite place for fishing.

Good place to stay
We liked this place very much
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. Keep us in mind for future visits to Fair Haven.
Great Lake house. Plenty of room.
Plenty of room, beds, and screened in porch was great. Yard was fantastic with peaceful views. Close to town and lake.
So glad you enjoyed your stay at Summerhill. We hope you have the opportunity to come back some time in the future!!
A Great time at Summer Hill Cottage
Just wanted to let you know that the we had a GREAT week at the Summer Hill Cottage !!!!
We were particularly pleased at the availability of finding just about anything we needed; from string to fans to flyswatters to kids markers and books to extra paper plates (which we replaced) to tools etc, etc.
Our kids spent nearly the entire week on the swings and and teeter tauter (!) especially the high rope swing. I now need to rig one in my back yard for the few grandchildren that live here in NY. The large yard and the good view of the Bay is great. And the price is right.
Thanks again for your help in making our Family Reunion a great success !!!!
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!
Rental for our wedding guests
My Husband and I rented this out for our families last year when we came to the Ren Faire to get married. It was great! There were plenty of rooms for us and a fantastic yard! The 2 porches were perfect! Being able to set up tents outside was also very helpful. Very close to the ren fair and to the beautiful fair haven beach state park! We hope to return for family trips for years to come!
Thanks for your review of our cottage in Fair Haven. It is much appreciated!!
If you are interested in renting again this year, I have 2 weeks open in August still. I much prefer to rent to repeat renters, so if Fair Haven is in your plans again, keep us in mind because before too I will be getting requests for the summer.
Have a great summer.
Friends weekend getaway!
Great location! Awesome view, huuge yard with horseshoe pit made for tons of fun! :-) If I could have stayed longer I would have! Lots of sleeping area and big living room for charades ;-) Also, a fridge on each floor made things extra convenient.
Our cottage is located in Fair Haven where there is a NY State Park. There is a large beach, camping and picnic areas, boat docks and a playground. Local areas of interest include wineries, antique stores, the Finger Lakes Region, Thousand Island resort and boat tours, and Corning Glass Works.
