About Mike Hendee

This quaint summer cottage was purchased by our parents in 1983. In 1990, following the death of our mother, our father did a complete remodel of the property into a 2100+ sq ft, 2 level, year round home. Since the passing of our father in 2011, we (4 siblings who now live in Boston, DC, and Rochester) have enjoyed the house as a year round vacation get away. To help defray the cost of second home ownership, we are looking to rent our vacation home out to others who are looking for a vacation that is a 'home away from home'.

Great family lake home

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a wonderful week at this great family lake home, we could not have been more pleased. The home is clean and well maintained, and the yard and steps down to the lake are in great shape. Working with the owners through the reservation and coordination steps leading up to arrival was a breeze. We enjoyed awesome sunset views from the back deck every night as we hosted family and friends from Rochester. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all good size and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is well stocked, and the second fridge was a big help. The Wifi and TV worked well, which helps with four kids in the house. The local area has many charming spots: we enjoyed a burger a Orbacher's and the kids loved the ice cream and fresh fruit from Burnap Farms. If you are looking for a well cared for home on a beautiful section of Lake Ontario, this home should be a top contender.
