Rooms were more than adequate. Beautiful improvements on inside but decking needs much work.

Very Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

This property has access to a convenience store that is literally a 5 minute walk away. There is a great playground right across the street. A short walk to ice cream shops and local restaurants. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to cook family meals. The beach is only .3 miles away which you can either walk or drive. The beach has a playground, shady spots with benches, a place to get ice cream and snacks, and a covered pavilion if you want to stay all day for a picnic. Very convenient with easy access to everything Sodus Point has to offer!

Perfect location with great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Another great vacation at this beautiful house. Smooth and easy transaction with Ted from beginning to the end. The house has everything you would want in a vacation home. We love the location and how quaint the town is. The new restaurants are amazing as well. I couldn't imagine anyone not loving this house and it's location.

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
