About Angela Tesoriero

Owners Rick and Angela Tesoriero

We live minutes from Fair Haven in the Town of Oswego.

Owners of 'Black Sheep Farm'. We can't be at two places at once so we will rent our beautiful home so others can enjoy it.

Angela Tesoriero purchased this house in 1984

Why Angela Tesoriero chose Fair Haven

It's quiet. On the water with a very large yard. We can keep our boat docked so it's ready when we are.

What makes this house unique

Private. Great breeze off the bay. We can sit out on the waterfront deck and sip a margarita while the sun sets.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Despite the fact that we had to leave a little earlier than planned we had a great time. We did it all, the Lavender Faire, kayaking, hiking, bicycling, fishing, swimming of course a visit to the Fly By Night Cookie Company. We so appreciate the clean, comfortable accommodations especially with the new flooring and decorating.

Thanks for always being so conscientious and kind. My granddaughter said that the cottage is her favorite place in the whole world. How could we not hope to return next year ?

Thanks for the hospitality.

Spectacular Waterfron Home is Right!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a fabulous vacation in Fair Haven! We were in awe when we arrived at the bay house, the pictures can't do the place justice, it is gorgeous. The interior of the house is spacious, very tastefully decorated and immaculately clean. Better yet were the decks, docks, the yard, the outdoor picnic tables and Adirondack chairs. The gas grill made cooking out a pleasure. The home/yard offered many different decks for the kids to hang out separate from the adults. Our hammock fit perfectly on the hooks in the trees in the front yard, offering an awesome view of the bay and sunset. While in Fair Haven we boated, kayaked, jet-skied, swam, visited the West Side Beach, the State Park and of course several trips to the ice cream shop, and the Fly By Night Cookie Company. We were lucky to have perfect weather, and many beautiful sunsets. We've been coming to Fair Haven for 25 years, and this has been our favorite lake house yet! We couldn't have been happier with our experience and hope to be back next year!

Great vacation week!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the great accommodations and setting of Bellissimo on the Bay. The cottage is in a quiet area, the one-level spacious living made it easy to move in and out, and the expansive yards, decks, and docks are top-notch. The bedrooms were all very nice and roomy, the cable tv and wifi worked great. The owners were very responsive and nice to deal with. We had fun with our college-aged daughters fishing, swimming, canoeing, sight seeing, cooking out, eating out, and biking around the village. We especially liked the Hardware Cafe, Fly By Night Cookie Company, local wineries, the beach at Fair Haven State Park, seeing bald eagles at Sterling Nature Center, and a rainy day spent in Oswego at The River's End Bookstore and Ontario Orchards. The sunsets were beautiful over the bay each evening. We would definitely recommend this property!

Slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and clean cottage. All the comforts of home! The Hardware Store is a "must go to" for breakfast or lunch! We also went to Fort Ontario in Oswego, also a must do if you have never been. The location was fantastic. This was our second year at this cottage! We have stayed on several different lakes and cottages over the last 15 years. This one is definitely in the top 5! The owners are responsive if you have questions before arriving, they have information for you once you arrive at the cottage along with their personal numbers if you need them while you are there. They have make the bunk beds into two twin beds side by side instead of bunk beds - stacked. We were thrilled about this!! Great idea!!! Angela and Rick - you have outdid yourself once again. Well done! Thank you for sharing your home with us - again :)
