Great house, awesome location

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely. It has that lived-in feeling, which is what I like in a vacation house. You can tell the owners actually use this house as well by how well stocked it is. It's really, really great with kids. Games, kiddie movies, beach toys, bikes, badminton net and rackets, basketball hoop, hammock....and more. The kitchen has everything you need- I hate staying in a house where you wished you had brought your whole kitchen with you because there's nothing there. It was having this weird electrical glitch when we were there, but with the owner's help we managed to work around it. I assume that was a weird one-time thing.

Location: Amazing!! Couldn't be nicer. It's a very short stroll through a wooded patch to the beach (totally beats walking several hot blocks to the ocean front.) On the beach you have access to Lake Ontario and an inlet to a bay that was great for the kids to kayak in. I loved that I didn't have to worry about the undertow dragging my kids away to a watery grave ( I tend to worry a little excessively around water.)

Thanks, Mary for sharing your house with us!

Really nice place

  • 4 of 5

Great back yard. We did use the kayaks, bikes, and played badmitten a bit. The water on Lake Ontario is very high this year so there wasn't a great beach. We used Sandy Island Beach and Selkirk beach quite a bit. The house worked out very well for my daughter, her husband, and granddaughter in one part, and grandma and grandpa in the other part. Also everyone loved the screened porch. Nice kitchen which is well equipped with good quality things. I would give it 5 stars, but we had to drive quite a bit to get to where we wanted to go, but this might not matter to some people. Be sure you get the lockbox code before coming - Other places we have rented have a notebook in the house with relevant information; we missed that here, but overall it was a successful stay.

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.

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.
