Fair Haven is a quaint village with vintage architecture. There is a library, grocery store and scenic waterfront dining. Fourth of July festivities include a parade, carnival and fireworks over the Bay preceded by a spectacular wall of fire around the Bay. Boat launch and docking/mooring is available near by. Evening hot spots often have a DJ or live music.
A short 3/4 of a mile down the road are the sandy beaches of the Fair Haven Beach State Park. The Park also offers fishing, hiking, golfing and family oriented activities. A short drive from the Village you will find the Sterling Valley Nature Center, the Renaissance Festival (weekends July and early August),antique shops and local artisans. Oswego State University is 1/2 hour away, Rochester, Finger Lakes Winery Trails and Syracuse are 1 hour away and Buffalo (Niagara Falls) and the Thousand Island area 2-3 hours.

Excellent area for swimming, sailing,fishing, water skiing, hiking, relaxing at the sandy beach in the State Park or infront of the cottage on Little Sodus Bay. The sunsets are magnificent from the ''Yellow cottage'. The 'Renaissance Fair' is a must see for culture and entertainment - weekends July-August
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!!
