About the Property

2 Bedroom, Sleeping Porch for 2, 1 bath cottage

Location, location, location! Situated on the shores of Long Pond just off Lake Ontario. Year round, central air and heat. Bring your boat, jetskis and kayaks to enjoy this fabulous gem. Just 10 minutes from Charlotte's beautiful beaches, park and antique carousel. 15 minutes to Hamiln Beach, 45 minutes to Niagara Falls and so much more. Choose from 14 local restaurants, or go 20 minutes to enjoy all that downtown Rochester has to offer. This cottage has a long, intriguing history during prohibition days.

Renovated and updated for today's needs while keeping the original heart and soul of the cottage, we offer Cable TV, DVD player, sound system and complimentary WiFi.

We are a easy 20 minute drive from Downtown Rochester where you can enjoy live theater, fine dining, music and Festivals year round. Take in a ball game, soccer or hockey.

Golf is huge in Rochester - with 50 courses all within easy reach.

Daytrippen! Go for a day of antiquing, tour the Finger Lakes and the wineries, Niagara Falls, Niagara on the Lake for a day of shopping. Toronto is a 4 hour drive.
