Thank you for your interest in renting our house (we call it camp). We think it is paradise. The camp has been in our family since 1951 when my husband's grandfather bought it. He has been to camp every year of his life. It is a very special place. The camp is 50 feet from Lake Ontario, and Cranberry Pond is on the other side. You will be able to swim and watch sunsets in your front yard, sunrises from the backyard.
The camp has 3 bedrooms, one bathroom (shower, no tub), kitchen, living/dining room and enclosed front sun room. One bedroom has a queen bed, work desk and sitting area, one has a full bed, and the other has two single beds. Additionally, there is a futon that sleeps 2 and a daybed. There is potable water in the kitchen. There is an oven, microwave, toaster, skillet, blender, dishes, utensils, serving platters, washer/dryer, etc. There is a gas grill outside and an outdoor fireplace (build by grandpa), picnic table, etc. There is also a TV and DVD player, and wireless internet. Lake Ontario is the front yard, usually pretty shallow for some distance before getting deeper. There are a few other beaches a short walk away and all accessible to Montario Pt. residents and guests. Camp is just south of Southwick Beach State Park, and 45 min. N of Syracuse.
Private road with onsite parking. Full access to the property, including outdoor gas grill and furniture. Access to Montario Pt. private beaches. The storage shed and a storage closet will remain locked.
Interaction with Guests
You can reach us on our cell phones while you are staying at the camp.
The neighborhood is a quiet summer residential neighborhood on a private gravel road nestled between Lake Ontario and Cranberry Pond. Our neighbors and their families have been in these homes for generations.
Montario Pt. is in Mannsville, NY, about 45 min. N of Syracuse, and 15 min. from Pulaski, just off Route 3. Boat launch/popular kayaking destination is just down the road at South Colwell Pond.
Other Things to Note
Bring your own bedding. The house has clean, potable drinking water in the kitchen. Although there is running water in the bathroom, you will use a water jug to brush your teeth. Please note that the house is on septic, so be aware of water usage (showers, flushes, laundry). There is no trash pickup during your stay. You must take all trash and recycling to the dump or take it with you when you leave.
