About Ted Welter
My name is Ted Welter and my wife Jackie and I love the Point. This is our 4th vacation home here. We sold one but still have the other 3 available for rent. If our Beach House doesn't fit your needs please let us know and we'll be happy to tell you about the other 2.
Ted Welter purchased this House in 2017
Why Ted Welter chose Sodus Point
We fell in love with this large house and fantastic location several years ago when we rented it. In 2017 we got the opportunity to purchase it and jumped as we know this is one of the best locations at the Point and the only 6-bedroom, 3-bath rental home in the area.

covid 2020 vacation
Very impressed with how smooth everything went especially during this time. My communication with Ted was super easy with quick responses. Totally appreciated that. Loved the house. lots of room and great amenities.
Just a couple little things. There were many carpenter ants. I'm not sure the floors were very clean. The trees made a huge mess on our cars. Is there a way to clean them without taking the paint off? Very sticky. Just wondering if you have any tips.
It was a fun, fun weekend. Thank you.
Garbage never came so I'm hoping they come sometime today. I'm thinking that is because if the Holiday? So the garbage cans are out front. We did contact Boy scouts to pick up cans. they are on the deck next to the grill. Thanks again!
We're so glad you all enjoyed yourselves and the home and amenities met your needs. Unfortunately with the home right on the sand that close to water, ants and even spiders are something pretty common in a Beach House, particularly in the Spring. We do have an extermination contract that keeps it under control but I'd be lying if I ever said it would be totally bug-free like an inland home. I hope they weren't too much of a bother. Regarding that last tree still in the front yard that only seems to happen in the Spring when the trees are in bud stage. I do know when it lands on our patio furniture is ends up washing away with rain water over the next few weeks. If you want it off faster there are paint-safe bug/tar removal products available at any auto parts store. By the time our team showed up the garbage had been picked up (it was a day late due to the holiday) and the boy scouts had retrieved the bottles. Thanks for supporting them!
This home was perfect for our annual sisters gathering. There were plenty of beds and lots of comfortable living space for our 8 sisters caring and sharing time together. Walking the beach to collect colorful stones and hiking the bluffs to enjoy the fall colors was a plus. We look forward to returning here for another sisters weekend.
Loved this cottage!
We had a reunion of girlfriends who all turned 60 this year There were 9 of us & we had plenty of room to spread out. No one had to share s bed. Being on the beach was perfect!
'Sounds like a fun weekend, glad everything was to your liking. Thanks.
Needed a place for out of town guest
The house inside is very nice. Close to the beach and pier. The only thing that upset me was i was not told about needing sheets for the beds. Or the need of towels. My husband and I have rented alot of houses and never ran into that.
This review was not posted by the person that rented the home (Donald) but by who we believe to be his wife (Jennifer). We were shocked upon seeing the ONLY 3-star we've ever gotten on any of our homes, and more shocked as the negative comment was simply wrong. So we sent the attached email to Donald. They did not respond nor correct the misleading review. "Hi Donald, we were taken aback by the review you or Jennifer left for our Beach House as it was mentioned that you were never told you had to provide sheets, towels and pillow cases for the beds. This was a shock since that point is referenced multiple times during the reservation process and again the week before your arrival. As you’ll see in the attachments with this email, it was cited on the VRBO listing, in the booking confirmation (Rental Agreement) that you were asked by VRBO to review before booking, which was then also mailed it to you to sign as we worry that some may simply skip over the agreement online. We also highlighted the need for those items in the “Helpful info for your upcoming Sodus Point trip” email we sent to you 6 days prior to arrival (below - please see the paragraph labeled “Remember to Pack”. I feel real bad that one of you may not have understood the terms, but I hope you can appreciate that we went to great lengths to communicate all the terms with you as our guest. Since nothing else was noted in the review I’m assuming the house was 100% as described. And as we so clearly communicated this issue multiple times through multiple sources, I am respectfully requesting you to change your review as it is simply unfair and gives the impression we may have mislead a guest. Thank you."
This place is very close to the beach and is large enough for everyone to enjoy themselves. Kitchen utensils could be upgraded (can opener did not work, cutting knives could be better, but pans and bowls were sufficient to prepare meals). Would stay again.
So glad the place worked out for your family and we'll make sure to get those knives and can opener replaced shortly. Thanks again.
