Owner info

About the owner: I spent my childhood summers in Fair Haven and my husband first came when we were in high school. We love being in Fair Haven and believe it is one of the most beautiful yet undiscovered (uncommercialized) places in the world. We love to sit by the water during the day and watch the sunset in the evening which is often spectacular. If I want to venture into the Village I routinely check out the craft/gift shops for new local talent. We ride our bikes to the Hardware Cafe for breakfast or lunch in the charming old hardware store - I remember when it was used as a hardware store!! There is casual dining at O'Connors Pub and waterfront dining at the Pleasant Beach Hotel. Live entertainment is regularly available at O'Connors and the Little Sodus Inn. The newly opened 'Lake Effect' Winery on the Bay is as lovely as any we have visited anywhere and also has live entertainment many weekends.

Why the Owner Chose Fair Haven, NY, USA:
My husband and I are so happy we can to spend our retirement summers in Fair Haven.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We especially enjoy the location of the 'Yellow Cottage' because is has easy access to the beautiful Fair Haven State Park which is a short walk down Lake St. Fair Haven has all the benefits of being on a fresh water lake for boating and water sports and the being on the 'ocean' with expanisve water views, opportunities for deepwater fishing and travel. The Fair Haven State Park is a beautiful public park that has walking trails, sandy beaches perfect for children and a great pier walk. My husband and I rarely miss our daily walk to the State Park! The State Park has a golf course a short distance out of town - great golf and reasonable price!!
