Sodus Bay - 'Quiet Waters'

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-8)

Located on Leroy Island (accessible by vehicle), 'Quiet Waters' was chosen as the name for this charming cottage found in a protected portion of Great Sodus Bay. Swans often nest across the water in the wildlife preserve; wildlife abounds. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation on the bay and enjoy water sports and sunsets, you need look no further!

Sodus Bay is known for spectacular water activities: excellent fishing and boating of all types. 'Quiet Waters' is conveniently located within minutes of several waterfront restaurants and two marinas, one with boat rentals and bait. You can also go by boat to Sodus Point or take the channel into Lake Ontario. Sodus Point features a sandy beach on the lakefront, two lighthouses and maritime museum, charter fishing, dining, and shopping.

Visit Niagara Falls, Watkins Glen Gorge and Speedway, Letchworth State Park, the spectacular Chimney Bluffs or one of the many area wineries and orchards. If racing or gambling are a part of your vacation plans, there are five nearby casinos and several stock car, speedway, and horse racing tracks to choose from. Enjoy a cruise on the barge canal or go antiquing! Bass Pro is only 45 minutes away!

Or you may choose to just relax quietly at your vacation rental. Sunrise coffee on the deck, morning fishing from the dock, afternoon siestas in the sunroom and/or boat rides with the kids, evening cocktails back on the deck; if these appeal to you, then the allergy-free cottage (sorry no pets and no smoking), 'Quiet Waters' is for you!

Sodus Bay - 'Quiet Waters'
average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

Beautiful cottage on a peaceful side of a precious little great lakes island.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our time in this little place, with its fully equipped kitchen and delighfully fittedout deck. Our bed was quite firm and we appreciated the second bedroom for all our suitcases. Two marinas are near very near. The restaurant Skippers Lounge was a treat for one reservation dinner out. God blessed with perfect weather. I would recommend Quiet Waters to anyone wanting a small absolutely precious cottage with agood walking dock.

Quaint Cottage with Impeccably Caring Owners!

  • 5 of 5

Our 4-night stay at this little cottage was wonderful. It is well maintained and no attention to detail has been overlooked. The driveway is grass and stops at the very large storage shed/carriage house. The cottage is nestled behind here under large, beautiful trees. It was raining when we arrived, and walking through the grass from our vehicle to the cottage did get our feet a bit wet. However, our luggage was easy to transport since the thoughtful owners keep a large wagon parked under a tree for guests to use.

Once inside, the cottage has a nostalgic charm to it. The décor is dated in some aspects, but efforts have definitely been made to update several key areas. The original flooring and details of the home make for pleasant surroundings. There is a wood-framed screen door which opens to the deck, and every time we opened it, its creaking sound brought back pleasant memories of days gone by. There are 2 bedrooms that are very small but functional, and there is plenty of floor and counter space in the bathroom. The standup shower allows enough room for an average size person to shower. The kitchen is well equipped and has a standalone island for extra counter space.

The most charming aspect of this home envelopes you when stepping out back on to the beautiful deck. There is an incredible view of the water, several docks and boats, the gorgeous trees that have been in existence for eons, and the beautiful flowers and plants that encompass the entire cottage and property. One of my teenage kids read an entire book while relaxing in a chair on the boat dock or on the papasan chair in the sunroom! Another golden gem of this property is the opportunity to use the 2 awesome kayaks and gear. The views and tranquility from the water were astounding!

Another treasure of this cottage is its location. There is no feel whatsoever of being a tourist since many of the people we talked to while walking around the island have lived there for years or even decades. They were all very friendly and talked fondly of their love for the area. Finally, the homeowners are the nicest, most considerate people you could ever imagine! We had a few questions before arriving at the cottage and a few during our stay, and Andy was readily available to answer them. They even have a journal in the cottage where guests can record their thoughts/ponderings to share with others. Staying at Quiet Waters was a memory my family will treasure forever!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. We are glad you stayed with us and are welcome back at any time. Speaking of that...returning customers will receive the same rate as the first time they booked...even years later. We do not often raise the rate (once in 9 years., but we are due sometime in the near future as taxes keep increasing. Have a wonderful winter.

Wonderful Great Lake Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Quiet Waters on July 25th for a weeks stay. The cottage is simply adorable. Love the sunroom and the big windows looking out onto the deck and lake. Just perfect! Sweet flowers and landscaping topped off this adorable place. Very relaxing and not too far from Sodus Point for restaurants and some shops. Big plus were the kayaks. Two kayaks await for adventure! We kayaked the entire bay and Chimney Bluff as well!!!! Kayaking anytime you like is awesome!!!!! The landlords are amazing to work with. THANK YOU SO MUCH GUYS!!!!!

Where do you live?

Just what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

This was a great little cottage and just what we were looking for. We used quiet waters as a jumping off point for trips to Niagara Falls, Rochester and Oswego, plus enjoyed the sights on the bay. The kayaks were an added bonus enjoyed by our two sons. As the name implies, this is a quiet spot that we really enjoyed coming back to at the end of the day. We recommend an easy hike at Chimney Bluffs and really nice beach at Sodus Point. The Helluva Good cheese stand is worth a visit and we ate at Skippers cove twice, great sunset spot, especially from the outdoor deck, very nice staff.

The cottage is obviously well cared for and clean. There was a new brick paver path and nice landscape touches so there is a good amount of attention being paid to the home. The second bedroom has a single and loft single so make sure you have some athletic guests for the second room. Bathroom was clean and neat, but the shower is a little tight yet perfectly functional. Carol and Andy were super easy to work with.
