Next to loud bar makes for little sleep

  • 4 of 5

My family of four (two adults to children) stayed for a week over the memorial holiday to attend a family reunion.

There are many pros of this house, which include:

1. Ability to house lots of guests

2. Location to two playgrounds, marina, boat harbor, and shops

However, I gave it 4 stars because while it is in a very centralized location, it is opposite a loud bar that played LOUD 80's rock music until 1-2am every night. The music floated across the boat harbor and directly into the house. Even with ear plugs and white noise (fans), the walls reverberated with the music. We could not get to sleep all week before 1am.

That said, the manager was very gracious and quick to rely to txts, questions, and needs. The place is stocked with kitchen supplies, but don't expect to find any spices or toiletries.

Most everything is a bit shabby and worn. However, for the price it was reasonable.

Great for family

  • 5 of 5

We chose this rental because it is in the middle between us and where my brother-in-law's family live. We have 4 adults, 4 kids (3.5, 5, 7, 7) and 2 seniors in our party. We had a great Christmas get together with the family. The rental is very clean, with a well-stocked the kitchen. Right on the lake with beautiful view. Enough room for everyone in our party. Check-in is easy. House is very cozy and warm. Everyone liked it a lot.

We went skiing at Brantling ski area. A family operated ski area, great for kids, not crowded at all. About 17 minutes from the rental. People are extremely friendly at the ski area. Overall we had a great, relaxing time. It is a very friendly place for families. I bet in the summer it is going to be a lot of fun too.

Girls Weekend in Sodus

  • 5 of 5

Each year a group of girls from work travel for a "girls weekend", we stay in NYS to spend more time together, than travel time; visiting many of the Finger Lakes. Our choice this year was Sodus Point; the cottage we stayed at was just perfect! Very clean, remodeled, spacious, plenty of room to accommodate our group. Very short walk into town, and to the beach which is lovely.

We had so much fun together, returning again next year is on top of our list, will not disappoint!

Golf in the Kingdom

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the property totally added to my enjoyment of playing golf in upstate New York. The house large, clean, and functional ( could wash my clothes!!) The house is centrally located which allowed us to visit several courses in the area without spending a lot of time on the road. Additionally, i was able to enjoy the scenic pleasures of Sotus Pt...the town, the bay, and surrounding area.

Bobbie spent time every day ensuring that we were enjoying our stay and was quick to offer suggestions & options about activities in the area.

i would recommend staying here to anyone! Thanks!!!

Ladies from Syracuse

  • 5 of 5

The description of the property was exactly as stated. The house was clean and included everything you'd want. I really like the TV in some of the rooms for those who wanted to watch "something else". Would be perfect for kids. Bob was very helpful getting the grill going in the rain. Since we only stayed for a weekend, there were many places that still need to be visited. I believe we will be making a return trip!

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures and description are very accurate. View of Sodus Bay from the back porch or the dining room was so pretty and relaxing, and the beach on Lake Ontario is less than a 5 minute walk away. Owner was extremely friendly and helpful. We are already set up for our next stay there.
