Warm days and cool nights, with endless blue water at your doorstep....come and enjoy life on beautiful Lake Ontario.
As evidenced by the now over 70! unanimous (5 star) reviews, this is NOT your typical cottage.
Located on 200 feet of lakefront with breathtaking views of both the sunrise and sunset from your private deck, this lovely one bedroom house is perfect for a romantic getaway for two, or for a small family seeking a lakeside vacation.
45 minutes from Rochester, Buffalo and Niagara Falls and right off the New York State Parkway, the location couldn't be more convenient. With cable TV, WiFi, public water, air conditioning and ample heat plus countless amenities, you'll be on vacation the moment you arrive.
Just as lovely in the spring and fall as it is in the summer, this location is the perfect spot for parents visiting students in Brockport, Rochester, Niagara or Buffalo. Lake Ontario turns a vibrant dark blue in the spring and fall and a walk among the changing foliage in Lakeside Park is simply spectacular. On chillier nights, our fire pit provides a cozy place for you to comfortably linger well past sunset. A large stack of fire wood and plenty of kindling are available for your use. Long summer evenings will amaze you with skies loaded with stars and sparkling fireflies, the likes of which can only be seen in the country.
The unit is all on one floor with an open floor plan, and includes a queen-size bed, a brand new couch that converts into a second full sized bed, a full kitchen and living room, as well as a full bathroom with shower. A privacy screen is available to separate the bedroom area from the living room, if requested. The entire house has been completely remodeled, and is absolutely gorgeous inside.
The property borders on Lakeside Park, where you can enjoy miles of hiking along the breathtaking bluffs on the southern shore of Lake Ontario. A new 18 hole disc golf course is also available for your enjoyment.
In the area you will find several golf courses, fresh produce, a drive-in movie theater and wonderful restaurants. The house is nestled in a lakeside hamlet less than 15 minutes from the Erie Canal. Kayaking and canoeing opportunities along local creeks and waterways abound. You will find each nearby town loaded with unique shops, local landmarks and fascinating history. When you return back to the lake, you'll find the perfect location to relax and read that book you have been looking forward to. Most importantly, you'll have a chance to reconnect with nature and each other.
You'll have the most gorgeous view of the sunrise and sunset from your deck, surrounded by endless blue water. Come enjoy your own private paradise!
September and October dates are still available, and fall is one of the best seasons at the lake! September days are typically warm, but not hot- humidity is low, and the nights are cool. The lake is perfect for swimming, and delicious local produce is available in countless farm stands. October brings star filled skies, nights around the campfire, and the reds and golds of changing leaves.
Every month is beautiful in its own way, but September and October are particularly wonderful!
