Guestbook comments from the owner

We all had a great time last week. The beach this year is bigger and sandier than ever! The weather changes the beach from day to day, but one day it was perfect. The kids (age 7 and 6) rode their rafts up the wide, shallow inlet, with a gentle current into the small waves of the lake over and over again. They called it the lazy river. We also went golfing at the Elms (very reasonable and not crowded) and visited Sackets Harbor for drinks with friends at the Boathouse Restaurant and then a nice dinner at the Brewing Co. with a beautiful view of the harbor at each place. We made some great dinners and also had fun skipping rocks and making smores around the campfire.

The house has a newer kitchen (with no wall between the kitchen and living room) and a flat screen t.v. now. We enjoyed these updates.

Relaxing stay, beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

We found the property clean and comfortable, and we totally enjoyed the time we spent there. It is a fairly short walk to the wonderful beach, and we even had the beach to ourselves for one whole morning. On our first night there, someone was setting off fireworks, so I was a bit worried about how noisy it would be; however, it was a quiet, relaxing week. We spent a lot of time on the screen porch catching up on our reading.

Because water is delivered to the home, my family members were quite nervous about using water, even though I assured them we just needed to be reasonable about water usage. This was the only concern during our stay. Mary checked on the water level and made sure we knew how to monitor the water level, making sure we were all set and would not run out of water during the week.

The only glitch could have been receiving the information regarding how to access the residence. This is an issue with the website, though, not the property. I had never used this site before, so I did not realize Mary had sent me information on entering the house. Fortunately, she checked in with me the day before and mentioned it was sent to me. I had to search on the website to find it and would not have been aware of it if Mary had not given me a heads-up. Thanks Mary!

I would definitely recommend this property and would certainly consider staying there again. I think it would be great to go for a longer time period.

Enjoyed this property.

The house is not on the water but easy walking distance. The yard is beautiful. There is an abundance of living space in the house. The owners are very attentive to our needs.

A week in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to the lake house with our five children and my mother. My girlfriend and her 2 sons joined us for a few days as well. We had the time of our lives. Great proximity to the beach, wonderful area, sunsets were amazing. Owner was kind and attentive and called to check on us not long after we arrived. The nearby neighbors were friendly and when we had a cooler day we took the kids to a nearby farm on their recommendation and it was a lot of fun. They even allowed my children to play in the treehouse they had built for their grandchildren :) Will definitely return!

great house, beautiful private beach

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at the house with our children and extended family for 2 summers in a row and will probably make it a new family tradition. The house is very comfortable and clean. It easily accommodates for up to 12 people. It's a short walk to the beach right off the backyard. You get miles of almost empty beach with an access to the tributary for fishing and kayaking. it's a great summer spot, perfect for families who like to get away from busy life.

Best Place on the lake

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been visiting the Wiley camp for three years with our daughter and grandchildren. The back yard is great for kids and its a short walk over the dunes to the best beach on the Great Lakes. The place itself it beautiful, well maintained and lots of room. We hope to make many more years of memories at this camp!

Only one word...WOW

  • 5 of 5

I would, and probably will, go back to this wonderful place. The house (cottage) is huge and super clean. There was plenty of room for everyone and we were nine (3 moms and 6 kids). The water was high so we had to cross over to have a nice beach but it was worth it. The backyard, the swing, the hamac, the BBQ... I could go on and on forever! There was also a small folder with things to do around the place, which was helpful to get to the market, thank you! I would only suggest only two very tiny things: 1) it would be nice to have a hose in the backyard to clean up when coming back from the beach instead of spreading sand all over the house and showers and 2) it would have been nice to have a few dish cloth???

In the entry, there is a sign that says: Where Memories Are Made, and this place truly did!

Thank you for everything!

East side of Lake Ontario, 8715 N. Colwell Rd., Mannsville, NY 13661. The lake adjoins several large coves (N. Colwell Pond) and across the inlet to the pond are miles of sandy beach that is undeveloped State Land. Great for kayaking and boating. Sunsets are amazing.

The Elms Golf course is close-by, boat launches, marinas, restaurants, Salmon River fishing are all close-by (within 10 miles).
