Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 0 - 10 nights


About the property

3 BR 2 Bath, sleeps 8. Waterfront on Sandy Pond, a large bay off Lake Ontario

This waterfront family summer home is located at Seber Shores on Sandy Pond, a large bay off Lake Ontario in northern Oswego County, New York. Three bedrooms, large living room, two full baths, fully-equipped kitchen, screen porch, dock, good water, glorious sunsets, and the largest lawn on the Shore. A canoe and row boat are included for your enjoyment. The house is comfortably and attractively furnished, and includes a large-screen TV, DVD player, piano, and decent stereo; wi-fi and cable.

The master bedroom has a superb king-sized bed and its own (full) bath (with tub and shower). There are two other bedrooms, one with an excellent queen-sized bed and the other with twin beds. There’s a queen-sized pull-out couch in the living room for additional sleeping facilities (and the screen porch can accommodate those who prefer al fresco sleeping).

The cottage is convenient to three State Parks on Lake Ontario, with sandy beaches, and several golf courses. The Pond boasts good fishing for pike, bass and panfish (you can fish off the front lawn if you’d like), and of course Lake Ontario is famous for salmon, lake trout and brown trout. (No guarantees from the Management!) You’re only a few miles from the mouth of the Salmon River, known for (you guessed it!) salmon, and just a bit further north is Henderson Harbor, “home of the black bass.” (There are many licensed charter captains nearby to take you “big water” fishing.) The canoe and row boat are ideal for exploring “Little Sandy Creek,” the mouth of which is right out front. Several of the nearby marinas often can accommodate larger boats with short-term slip rentals. Sandy Pond is ideal for small-boat sailing, so if you have a sailboat be sure to bring it.

The nearby villages of Pulaski and Sandy Creek can supply all day-to-day shopping needs, and for more extensive “mall” shopping (and entertainments) Watertown is only about a half-hour away (either by I-81 or Route 3, known for decades as the “scenic highway”).

The cottage is available for rentals from May through October. Rentals are typically by the week. Summer rentals start and end on Sunday . Longer or shorter stays (3-night minimum) will happily be accommodated in the spring and fall.

Perfect place for our annual fishing trip

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained property with comfortable beds and all of the amenities you could need. Nice yard with fire pit and beautiful view of the pond and sunsets. Responsible caretaker and owner made sure our stay went without a hitch. Easy drive to all of our favorite fishing holes.

Cozy getaway

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed my stay on North Pond (with inlet to Ontario). Nice cozy atmosphere, small neighborhood of water front homes. Plenty of room for croquet or volleyball and a great view of the lake from the screened in porch. Took full advantage of the little fire ring by the water every evening.

Quaint little cottage by the lake

  • 5 of 5

Probably the most relaxing vacation we have ever had as a family. The views from the living room were picture perfect. Best weather all week too! I will miss waking up to a cup of coffee on the porch with the view of the water and the breeze. Neal gave us all the information we needed and the neighbors were so friendly and helpful! I hope to make it an annual trip!!!

Great little vacation house

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect and what a wonderful view! The "pond" was a little hard on us as we had no experience with that much under water growth and had to keep cleaning out the engines on our boat. Other than that a great time. Caught lots of fish right from shore (perch, blue gill, sun fish and two really large bass) too. Had a great charter experience for King Salmon from Fish On charters. Also a huge thank you to the caretaker, Dave. He is full of tons of tips and knowledge, we enjoyed him immensely.
