About Tom Gerula

Several generations of our family has enjoyed this cottage for over 50 years. We have many memories of our spring, summer and fall times here. I started fishing for pan fish from our dock and grew up fishing for large mouth bass during the summer in this unique quiet undiscovered bay. Currently also available is fishing for brown trout, salmon and small mouth bass in the adjoining great lake of Ontario. I have spent the last 20 plus years making this property my retirement getaway. I hope you also can make some memories here and enjoy this setting that allows many activities in a relaxing atmosphere.

Tom Gerula purchased this cottage in 1966

Wonderful week on this quiet bay!

  • 5 of 5

Great location on the bay - you can just sit, relax, and watch the sun rise! Loved that the yard was big, living room ample, and the bathroom had room to hang 10+ towels. All kinds of pots and pans and utensils were in the kitchen, and blankets were provided for each bed. We had 2 adults and 3 kids, and managed with the 1 bath just fine. The grill was excellent - easy to use and heated up super fast. Second fridge was handy to have. No AC, but there were ceiling fans and box fans in each room. Fair Haven State Park nearby was awesome, along with the cool Sterling Historical Museum. :) Recommended!

Relaxation for all

  • 4 of 5

Was a great stay in an area of Fair Haven (really Red Creek) that I didn't remember from visting there all while grofing up. Close to the "West Side" (aka Stone Beach). I would caution that all three bedrooms are adjoining and "walk throughs" so not conducive to privacy. All in all a great stay! Thank you!

Blind Sodus Bay

  • 4 of 5

The week went by all too quickly. The cottage was exactly as listed. The best part was having the bay right out your living room window. There is not a lot to do if you like the hurty gerty vacation but there is a great deal of country flavor if you like car rides. We enjoyed the many farm stands in the area (especially peaches!)

My only concern about the place is it is not really handicap accessible. The tub is very deep to crawl over the sides and the stairway to the bedroom area has steep deep stairs. I would caution senior citizens about these conditions. Otherwise, anyone would enjoy this cottage without a doubt!

A well deserved pause

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at the cottage was queit and peaceful. The windows and the view were great to wake up to, along with the gentle waves. Our teenage boys enjoyed the use of the rowboat and canoe for hours upon hours of fishing and exploring. Daily trips to the jetty were the perfect escape to the stoney beaches of Lake Ontario and endless rock gathering proved to be the best therapy.

An extended family dinner at the Pleasant Beach Hotel was perfect. Excellent service and excellent meal.

Thank you Tom for a great stay!
