Enjoy waterfront living in a completely remodeled, DOUBLE LAKEFRONT cottage. This 4 bedroom home serves as the perfect location for a family vacation or fishing trip. We aptly named this property “Bayview” for the outstanding views of Sandy Pond from the second story deck. Walk the stairs from the rear of the home to an amazing view of Lake Ontario on top of natural sand dunes. Enjoy relaxing on the beach, fishing, biking, amazing sunsets and area attractions from one of a few homes in the area offering double waterfront views, a boat dock and amazing Lake Ontario sunsets.
****Please note: For those of you familiar with Lake Ontario, you have probably heard about the very high water levels in 2017 due to increased water levels maintained by the International Joint Commission and a very wet Spring & Summer. We did experience loss of some of our dunes. We also lost our staircase leading down to the beach, which we are currently in the process of replacing. We have cleaned most of the debris & will continue to do so this Spring. The beach & access to it will be ready on or before June 1. The cottage and the attached deck sustained no damage at all.
Pictures will be posted when available.
The Experience: Start your morning with a cup of hot coffee on the deck overlooking beautiful Sandy Pond and conclude your day roasting marshmallows over a fire on the Lake Ontario beach. Some favorite activities at the cottage include:
•Spectacular Sunsets on Lake Ontario from the deck atop a natural sand dune
•Views of Sandy Pond from the front deck
•The private cove beach only accessible to 3 homes
•Swimming in Lake Ontario from the private beach. The water is very shallow up to about 20 yards from the beach making it more “kid friendly”
•Boating Lake Ontario and Sandy Pond. We often take trips to Henderson and Sackets Harbor. For those a bit more experienced with a larger boat; the Thousand Islands or Kingston, Ontario area is a great day trip from the house or Henderson Harbor.
* “Boater's Beach” is a long, all sandy beach accessible by a short boat ride, 2 miles south. There is also another smaller beach area over a mile away, which is also accessible by boat or a short walk along the shoreline.
•Fishing from the dock with the kids for Bass and Sunfish, Sandy Pond for Bass and Lake Ontario for Lake Trout and King Salmon is another favorite activity. There is also an amazing Salmon Run on the Salmon River near Pulaski (20 minute drive).
•Fine Dining in Sacket's Harbor (Tin Pan Galley or Sacket's Brewing Co) or Rainbow Shores, 15 minutes south of us.
•Watching the kids catch frogs on the pond
•Golf at The Elms Golf Course
Bicycling on the many scenic rural roads /Seaway Trail
•Short daytrips to Old MacDonald Farm, Local Wineries, Taking the ferry to Wolf Island/Kingston Ontario, Thousand Islands and the Adirondack Mountains
•Ice Cream with the family at “The Trolley”
•Bonfire on the beach after enjoying the sunset—Don’t forget supplies for Smores!
•Location: On a private peninsula between Lake Ontario and Sandy Pond. Large lot with plenty of parking and flat area for a game of volleyball or soccer. The rear of the home backs to a sand dune with a deck that adjoins a third-tier deck atop the dune. The front of the home looks over Sandy Pond and has direct water access via a boating channel.
•Beach: Private Cove beach shared by three homes. The beach changes with the lake water level and weather. At times it is rocky, sometimes it is sandy, but one thing is certain—the privacy and views cannot be beat. Typically the beach is covered with small-medium stones. Depending on the water level we have a lot more sandy area when the water is lower. The water is great for swimming and shallow enough for kids. When in the water, your feet will be on a nice sandy bottom.
•Boat Dock: There is a dock for this property on the canal accessing Sandy Pond; which will fit most 20 ft. boats or jet skis. Access to Lake Ontario from Sandy pond is via nearby channel! There is access for kayaks as well.
•Decks: The West Deck is atop a sand dune with spectacular views of Lake Ontario. There is a staircase that goes to the private beach. The East Deck has spectacular views of Sandy Pond. What more could you ask for?
