Enjoyed my stay
very nice, cozy property. great location. the outside could use a little more yard work and overall tidiness.
Love the accessibility to the water
Wish there were a patio or porch that you could sit on and look out at the water- the cottage in front of the little place blocks almost the whole scene. Wonder if no one is in the big house in front of the little place if sitting on that deck is OK? That would be terrific!
Thanks for your stay! And I do hope to see you back again!
The entire beach is public so you can take a chair and sit out front by the water anytime. Also can light a fire on the public beach away from the wood homes of course.
Lastly I will check with the owners but the hard part of using the benches and area directly in front is that they may come in to spend the night and it will be in use. When not there it may not be an issue but they can come at anytime, which makes it a bit hard, to use the area directly part of that cottage, but the entire beachfront is public. So I recommend move out yet closer to the water and have a seat or campfire.
Good place without the frills.
I love to stay there on the beach and be able to see and hear the wave just sitting outside the door. My complaint: Fix the outside. I do hope the outside table gets replaced very soon as I'm staying there again soon. My company and I had several spills and lost food as the table legs are broken. Also the brick on the ground needs to be finished or taken out. It makes for a very uneven ground especially for those with a balance problem, unfortunately that's me.
Great to have you back each year! We were thrilled to have you back twice this year! By your second trip....
We had purchased and installed a new table for outside. Unfortunately shifting sand and ground make it hard to keep it pristine and flat outside around the home. Each year in spring a backhoe is hired at great expense to fix and level the outside sand (winter makes dunes and bare spots). Overtime the sand has covered the brick drive and the backhoe when removing sand has damaged and moved some bricks. Sand and wind shifts it back. That is the beach. We do our best to fix it each year in the spring. Sorry the beach, sand and some loose bricks make the ground uneven.
Many upgrades and improvements were completed due to guest feedback. We installed an AC unit upstairs this year. A full size fridge was added and a full size grill with 2 tanks of propane. Now a new table outside also. Each year we try to improve and still keep rates reasonable. Thanks again for your stay!
Perfect for what we wanted
It is exactly what it says it is and my 12 and 10 year olds thought it was a cool old place. Need I say more? We usually trek to the East coast oceanside to get this experience. Waves lapping the sandy beach, beautiful Lake Ontario is within sight and sound. Love waking up to that. A short walk to the end of the driveway, maybe 4 car lengths long, and there is gorgeous Sodus Bay at the other end of the street. Restaurants and shops all within walking distance. It was exactly what we needed and the shortest drive to get to it that we have ever had. We will be back!
I loved the tiny beach house and location!
We had a very relaxing week. We loved the tiny beach house and the location very much! The view of the home in front, which I believe has the same owners as the beach house, could be tremendously improved. There was a very unattractive gazebo that was in significant disrepair and several brick piles lying around, both of which were an eye sore and distraction from the view of the lake.
Sandy Beach Sodus Point Cottage
A was a bit frightened by some previous reviews, did I make a mistake? When I pulled up and unlocked the door, I was pleasantly surprised. It is what it is---a cottage --not to be confused with a Condo. The sleeping loft was PERFECT for my grand teens, and I was happy to see a futon in the small living area for me. It's a perfect location with teens because they have plenty of "walk to" options (Beach, Snack Bar, downtown) . It was a perfect location for me as a base for photography day trips to Chimney Bluffs, Sterling Nature Center, Oswego, and lots of country
roads. The bathroom is very small, but it was only a week, I could make due. Unfortunately this is the summer of rain, and there were no campfires or roasted marshmallows for us. The grandteens thought it was "so cute" and that made me happy. Bottom Line, it was within my budget, and I felt the money was well spent, we made many great memories.
Sodus Point and Sodus Bay in the Fingerlakes of NYS, is a recreational paradise. The best of a Great Lake AND a small Lake in that Sodus Bay is like a fingerlake in itself due to its large size. Enjoy the sandy beach, hike out the pier, take a trip to the Sodus Light House Museum or a hike in a premier Park like Chimney Bluffs State Park. The area is also home to winerys, adorable shops and a short dive to theme parks, amusment parks and so much more.
