New Waterfront Home with Deep Water Dock

Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

3bd/2ba Amazing Views, Central AC, New Construction

Located right on Little Sodus Bay and within shouting distance of our little Fair Haven town this location offers wonderful conveniences and complete serenity. Our town offers live band concerts each Saturday night... the rest of the week explore our ice cream shops, restaurants, waterfront bars, antiques, grocery and liquor store, tackle shop, and boat rentals.

The house was built in 2008 with comfort in mind. Central heat and air conditioning, a whole house attic vent fan and an auto-on propane generator means nothing will disrupt your vacation.

The first floor has a walk around kitchen and the cupboards and drawers are fully stocked with all the amenities of home. Dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, microwave oven, conventional wall oven, and center island cook-top are all stainless steel to fit our nautical themed house.

Easy single floor living is possible as just off the kitchen is the master bedroom. Equipped with Tempur-Pedic® mattresses that are set up as a queen, but can be separated into two twins, these things are a dream to sleep on. Directly off that bedroom is the master bath with twin sinks, private toilet room and a separated very large walk in shower.

On the waterfront side of the house the kitchen is separated from the great room by a counter that easily fits four for those quick meals on the go. On the other side of the counter the great room is split between a large redwood dinning room table that seats 8 and a living room with fireplace, TV, two couches and two high back chairs.

The best part of the first floor has to be the 500sq foot deck that overlooks the bay, waterfront yard, and deep water dock. The deck is equipped with two iron tables and 10 chairs to seat everyone plus guests comfortably for those amazing sunsets over the bay.

The second floor has a bedroom equal in size to the first floor master bath with a king bed in it. The water views right our of this room are a great way to wake up in the morning. A nice sized bathroom with single sink, tub/shower and toilet is right in the middle of the two upstairs bedrooms. The third bedroom has queen mattress and desk. The third floor also has a bonus loft area with a fold out couch that sleeps two. Comfortable wicker furniture also make a nice quite area for board games or reading of course with great views of the waterfront.

On the waterfront you will see our 60ft deep water dock. Depths at the end of the dock are over 10ft in most summers. The dock will easily accommodate two or even three good sized boats and is well protected from the occasional northerly blow.

We have fished the whole bay for generations and we are convinced our dock is one of the best spots in Fair Haven for kids to catch unlimited fish all week! If sand is your thing then some of the best fresh water beaches in the world are just a one mile walk, paddle or ride away.

All linens and towels are included for your vacation. We look forward to hosting you!

About Brandon & Bill Flack

Fair Haven has been part of the fabric of our family for five generations. The Flack brothers welcome you and we look forward to sharing this special place with your families for many years.

Brandon & Bill Flack purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Brandon & Bill Flack chose Fair Haven

We love this house and town. We choose to rent this house not as a business, but more as a way to keep the house in our family for generations to come. We hope you will enjoy it half as much as we do each summer. The house is maintained and furnished as an owner occupied house and your stay will have the feel of being invited guests of our family.

What makes this cottage unique

Sunsets... unlimited fish per worm... water skiing off the dock... sailing down the bay to the white sandy beaches of Fair Haven State Park. My brother and I have been lucky enough to have been able to travel the world and both completely agree there is no better place to spend a summer.

Fair Haven Charm

  • 4 of 5

This is our third year staying at this property. The location is perfect...walking distance to town and right on the bay on Lake Ontario. The sunsets are magnificent. This home is beautifully designed and we've enjoyed our annual stay cooking home cooked healthy meals and relaxing. I spend over 6 months a year traveling the world and staying in properties. I must say though that this property is not as well maintained as most of the properties I stay in. It is well stocked, but much of the linens, kitchen supplies, etc. are old and dated. In the 3 years that I've stayed here they must have taken feedback for the cleanliness of the property has improved. The owners are responsive and flexible .... I do appreciate this.

Beautiful home & views, especially sunset 🌅

  • 4 of 5

Overall a very pleasant experience. Had a problem with trash pickup & upstairs shower needs repair/replacement. Kayaks were wonderful & great fishing off the dock. Seating for 10 on the front deck - very convenient. Well equipped kitchen & very nicely decorated throughout. Loved O'Connors pub which was close by & the town library was convenient & very pleasant. All questions & concerns were addressed immediately by the owners- nice to deal with.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed another memorable week at the vacation home! We saw swans, a loon, deer, great blue herons, and at the nearby State Park, a small red fox. We look forward to a return trip.

Fair Haven Beach State Park
Car: not necessary

Just one hour from Syracuse or Rochester (20 min to Oswego) this small upstate new town has ideal location. Our waterfront property has just 1/3 of a mile walk up into town for restaurants, groceries, or shopping. It's also short boat or car ride to Fair Haven Beach State Park (less then 2 miles up the bay).

The cottage has it's own private deep water dock that is perfect for a swim, fishing, or sunbathing. Boats with 5' draft can easily tier up here in our protective cove.

Our waterfront also has a ramp for small boat water access (no cars). It's easy to launch a kayak, small sailboat, or jet skis off dollies right from front yard.
