Nice house and yard

  • 4 of 5

The house and yard were very nice; we enjoyed being able to spend time outside and use the fire pit. The owner was helpful and kept me updated with area information and things to do in the area. The issues we had are that the air conditioning does not work. We visited on a very warm weekend in June and the house was hot. Nighttime was terrible because there was very little airflow and no AC. Fortunately we brought window fans with us so that was helpful. We found that the DVD player on the living room TV would only play one DVD and there were very limited cable options for the kids (there were 6 kids 4 and under).

Owner's Response: Hi Elizabeth, we saw your online review of your last weekend’s stay and we feel very badly about the air conditioning and DVD player problems. We wish you had called the maintenance phone number provided as we would have helped rectify those problems right away. Coincidently this weekend’s guests told us about the air conditioning issue yesterday and we had it resolved within just a couple hours from their initial text. The AC unit is only a few years old and in perfect working order. Unfortunately however, when it was turned on at the beginning of the season a safety switch on the outside unit was mistakenly left in the off position. The technician had it running moments after arrival and we wish we could have done that for you so you weren’t inconvenienced. Given how new the AC unit is, this one caught by surprise as we’ve never had a problem during the cooling season, particularly since we have all those ceiling/wall fans throughout the house. As for the living room DVD player, hopefully you were able to entertain the kids with the 2 other TV/DVD. Nonetheless, we’ll have that living room DVD player checked and/or replaced as necessary for future guests. On the issue of the 20 TV channels we’ve considered upgrading the package but with the 3 DVD players, large selection of DVDs, games and other things to do while in Sodus Point we’ve kept the basic package while being careful to advertise it with basic cable so that guests know what to expect. We are very sorry for your troubles and hope you will consider returning again some time. Ted & Jackie

Best Weekend Getaway Ever

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute blast at the house. So much to do in the yard (baseball, kickball, games, and campfire) and great proximity to lighthouse and playground. Unfortunately, couldn't go boating because Lake Ontario is flooded, but it didn't matter. I would highly recommend the house and Ted was awesome to work with. We'll be doing this again for sure. There was 15 of us, 8 of which were kids under age 10. Thank you, Ted and Jackie, for an amazing experience!!!

Clean, updated, comfortable. A wonderful get away!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in, we felt welcome! Great layout with a wonderful kitchen, dining area, spacious living room and excellent space to spread out and play games. The floor plan worked beautifully for our group. The sleeping areas accommodated our large number and there was no need to use air mattresses! Plenty of parking too! I would highly recommend this spot to anyone!

This is our second year staying at Bay View at the Point.

The property is very accurately listed, no surprises.

Ted is easy and professional to deal with.

I believe he is a realtor by trade in the nearby Rochester area which helps explain the attention to great detail and an understanding of the local market.

Sodus Point is a great little town with a few beautifully maintained public areas, parks, playgrounds etc.

Being a geographically unique feature on one of the great lakes can make this a popular destination in the summer.However, it still has a very backwoods, off the beaten path charm to it.

As for tips while in the area?

Convenient mart/gas station which also sells beer borders the property.Some people may read this and imagine it as a negative but believe me, it does not interfere in any way.No noise, no aesthetic issue(surrounded by an attractive wooden fence), and a net positive to this house.

The nearby Chimney Bluffs state park is a must in season and the Sodus Point lighthouse and museum is about 2 blocks away.

In the winter the dining options are limited.

We like the Franklin House Tavern, Captain Jacks is ok and within walking distance(more of a fun bar to watch the Syracuse basketball games than a foodie stop), and a ride to the Pultnyville Deli for lunch (about 15 minutes away down a scenic stretch of the lake)is our norm.

We will always try to return to this property or any others Ted has when visiting this area.

Home was nicely appointed and comfortable except for the snow and ice on the front steps.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely but not really suitable for a short term rental. It was too much to have to lug linens, towels, paper products, etc for just a 3 day stay and then have to scrub toilets, showers, and floors on top of it to avoid paying a huge cleaning fee. It left us feeling like servants instead of guests. The requirements might have been appropriate for a two week or month's rental but not 3 days.

Owner's Response: So sorry about the snow issue Karen. I wish you had mentioned it when you spoke with Jackie as she would have dispatched the snow contractor. As for cleaning, we can provide exit cleaning for an additional cost. Most of the guests however, prefer to save that cost and clean on their way out so we don't push the extra service (sorry). If you ever decide to return to the area we'd be happy to hear from you and make sure to resolve these issues for you. Thanks again for renting with us and taking such great care of our home.
