About Mark Brockman

West Bay has been in our family for 4 generations. What started as a one room bayside retreat has grown over the years to combine the rustic charm of the original cottage with the modern amenities which make living here comfortable.

'Sant Cottage' as it was originally known has been the summer retreat for one of Fair Haven's founding families. Generations of the Sant family still live around Little Sodus Bay.

West Bay was built for Raymond S. Sant, one of the most influential figures in the development of Upstate New York. Ray Sant was a soldier and educator whose foresight converted rural New York's one room school system into the the centralized school system that exists today.

Ray Sant's interest in Fair Haven and Sterling lead him to chronicle its' development in several books tracing the history of families and businesses in the area.

West Bay is where he found his inspiration.

Mark Brockman purchased this house in 1928

Why Mark Brockman chose Little Sodus Bay

What makes West Bay special? It's the slower pace, the relaxed atmosphere and the abundant variety of activities.

Beautiful lake view

  • 5 of 5

Love the location - we fished off the dock, went to the nearby state beach, and used it as a base to visit the Finger Lakes, Rochester, Syracuse, and Oswego. The kitchen, living/dining room, sunroom were spacious. The back shower probably needs replacing, but other than that it was a great vacation place, and the owner was always accessible and helpful.

Great Place to Spend a Vacation

  • 5 of 5

A great place to spend a vacation! This was a get-together for our family - ages 17 to 80. and this

cottage gave us all that we needed - lots of room to spread out, a large, well equipped kitchen, beautiful

views of the water from both inside and outside. Everything was clean, with new carpeting and fresh paint. One of the best things for us was the large deck, shaded by a beautiful maple, where we could sit, read, enjoy the bay view, eat our meals from the grill, and watch some of the group in their kayaks. Mark was always availabe to us by phone and helped in every way to make our vacation special. Everyone wants to go back next year and I hope that we can.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem. My family and I stayed here for a week in August and it simply wasn't long enough. What a pleasure to awaken with the morning sun lighting the dining / living room.The sun sets were equally as spectacular. The view all the way from the back of the bay to lake has to be the best in Fair Haven. The accommodations were just right for everyone, adults and children alike. Plenty of beds, bathrooms, kitchen prep space, parking. Close to town and private also. We will be back next year.
