Good location for family/owners..but also for relaxing and view of lake, also proximity to area attractions. Very peaceful spot, but not far from a lot of great places to visit!

great place to RELAX
This cottage was everything we could have hoped for. Lake Ontario provided us with a great backdrop for our morning coffee. Can imagine anything better. Our hosts gave us great communication and a great place to stay. We are planning to be a yearly renter.
Thanks for the nice review! We are so happy that you enjoy it there, and we surely hope you will come back! Just be sure to book the dates you want early, as we already have a couple reservations for the next season! Thanks again.
Tom/Deb Arlington, AZ LAZY
The Best Cottage on Lake Ontario
We had another great stay at A-Z Lazy Lake House, I think that is the best cottage to rent on Lake Ontario. Tom and Deb are great, they supplied everything we needed for our stay. The cottage was very clean, neat and it has tons of supplies. We only needed our clothes and whatever food we wanted to eat. It is such a great location also, it is between Rochester and Niagara Falls, about 55 miles from Rochester, so it isn't too far to have friends and family down to visit. There are fruit farms and wineries close by so if you want to you can also go wine tasting or pick some fruit. We had such a great time sitting by the lake, drinking a glass of wine watching the sunset by the campfire. It was heavenly, we didn't want to leave. We can't wait to come back next year.
Thanks so much for the shining review! We really appreciate it....so happy you enjoy our AZ Lazy!
This is a great cottage on the lake
This is such a great cottage, we had a wonderful time, the cottage is very clean and neat and has everything needed for your stay, the only thing you need to bring is your own clothes and food. Deb and Tom are wonderful and make sure the cottage is fully stocked with any kind of supply you might need for your stay, there is water rafts and noodles, board games, lawn games, cards, cd's to listen to and even dvds to watch. I was even amazed that they had a supply of poop bags for our dogs. There is also wi-fi and cable if you don't want to get away from all the news. There is also brochures of attractions to see in the area. We didn't want to leave so we booked another long weekend in September and can't wait to get back there. Even our dogs did not want to leave. We are planning on trying to book for 2 weeks next year.
Thanks so much for the nice review! We replaced the can opener, thanks for letting us know about that. We try hard to keep up with things there, but hard when only there for a few hours between guests. It has been a busy year, and we are happy to have you back!
A very nice place to stay
The cottage was clean, nicely furnished, and the hosts were great to work with. They were willing to work with our special requests. We wish we had had longer to stay.
This is a charming cottage right on Lake Ontario.
We stayed at this property from August 31st to September 4th and truly did enjoy it. I want to make that clear right up front. A fantastic location, easy to find and close to many attractions. There were however some issues that, had they been addressed before our arrival would have made the whole experience just a bit better. First issue we had were spiders! More than a normal home would expect and a true arachnephobic could not have stayed there. The other issue we had was cleanliness. On first entering there was an strong smell of mildew and stale house. This didn't bother me as mush as finding dirty dishes. Specifically a small frying pan on the top of the stove, obviously used & left and the crock pot was not thoroughly cleaned. A thorough deep cleaning of the whole cottage would have significantly improved everything. And finally there were often whiffs of septic. It might not even have been from this property because there were only two of us there and we were gone most all day so I don't think we were stressing the system to any great degree.
I do not want this review to seem too negative because we truly did love the place and we Would go back again. (with bug spray!)
So to leave this on a positive note here are the Good things! WiFi worked Fantastic!!! This is a high priority for me. The location was fantastic! Extraordinary views of the sunset and sunrise every day. There was plenty of comfortable seating outside so that I was able to entertain my sister and her family one afternoon. The fire pit was put to good use and we loved that experience! The beds were very comfortable and it was nice that we didn't have to share a room (an improvement over a hotel). We traveled to Canada on two separate days, once to Niagara Falls and the bird and butterfly conservatories and once to visit Niagara On The Lake. Both were relatively short drives away through truly lovely rural settings. Another day we drove along the coast and found lighthouses to visit and take pictures of. The next door neighbors were wonderful people that we enjoyed getting to know!
If this were a rating system from 1-10 with 10 being the best ever, I would give this place an 8 because all the good and great things easily cancel out the few negatives and I only mention them so the owners can know what needs improving!! Would I stay here again... yes! Would I recommend to family or friends? Yes, I already have.
This time of year is impossible to control spiders, we spray constantly with Home Defense around cottage!
As for crock pot, hard to check what guests wash and put away to be sure clean, but will put that on list. Thanks for comments.
The owners here really love this place & It shows from the wonderfully fun details inside, to the landscape, fire& horseshoe pits & lake frontage outside! They must love people too. And this shows in the thoughtfulness to provide basic necessities, as well as sharing some things that are always a pain to pack like sheets & towels. Plus they let you bring your 4legged friend. Thank you!!
The owners themselves are a pleasure to deal with and as you can tell from my above comments, very accommodating. The best part of our vacation here was a toss up between the day trip to Niagra, the kids first visit!, and being on the water all day just relaxing and/or swimming/boating/floating at the cottage. I have never been to a more peaceful lakeside spot and I can't wait to come back and do it again!!
Thank you Tom & Deb!
