Tranquility, Relaxation, Location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 4 day stay at the "Little Red Cottage" on Sodus Bay and could not have had a better experience. Needed a little break from Society so my adult Son and I booked a short fishing trip to this area of NY that we have never been to. The location for us was just perfect, near my Son's Bass fishing areas as well as wineries, a Beautiful State Park, and a short drive to the famous Sodus Point where there is a wide array of activities and sights. The owners could not have made renting the Cottage any easier, very accommodating and flexible and treated two "Stressed Out" guests to one of our best vacations ever. We can't wait to return later in the year and soak in some more great Sunsets, experience more great fishing, and be treated like Kings. Thanks for everything.

Storybook Week!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was the perfect get-away for the week with family and friends. It was so well stocked with everything that was needed, making the arriving and settling in process very easy.

The hosts, Bill and Joanne, felt like family by the time we left. Their friendliness and hospitality were evident from the moment we arrived - helping us to unload our car in the rain.

The cottage was exactly as pictured - quaint, cozy but wanting for nothing. Hosting a family picnic couldn't have been easier with the gas grill, fully appointed kitchen, picnic table and ample outside chairs in which to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

We will definitely be making this a yearly vacation destination. Thankyou, Bill and Joanne!!

Peace full, well appointed, clean, views, great location on the bay, wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

The cute red cottage is way more than cute! It is very well appointed, roomy, comfortable, clean , 100% ready for our arrival, nothing at all needed to be done. The interior can accommodate quite a few for meals or a rainy day. The beds were very comfortable, the ac during the august heat wave wonderful! I recommend it highly. And to put it over the top the owners Joanne and Bill are as amazing as the other reviews say. They went the extra mile when our needs changed and were a great help in making a surprise party perfect. Having used Home away and VRBO 6 times in the past this is the first time everything was ready, workable and clean. They could give lessons on how to do it right! It truly is Home Away!

Beautiful Week Wonderful Memories Created.....Priceliss!

  • 5 of 5

Bill and Joanne,

I can not say enough how wonderful it was to stay at the "little red cottage". The cottage is decorated beautifully. The attention to detail was fantastic, and it was wonderful not having to worry about things like coffee, garbage bags, paper towels, linens, what sized beds, and whether there were utensils or not for how each and every one of us cook. The cottage was very well equipped. It was just a joy to know all was there, and if I could not find it all I needed to do was just ask. More than likely it was there, just did not know exactly where it was. My daughter and I had a wonderful time and she exclaimed on the way home of the 4 places I have rented from VRBO, she said this was the best of all!!!!!......I totally agreed and said best of all, it is very close and we can go again.....Both your hospitality was exemplary and the treats for dessert and bottle of complimentary wine on arrival, was a true bonus that sets both of you apart from all. We truly enjoyed our stay and am sorry I did not rent longer, but I do have to work to pay other bills. The neighbors were wonderful and we exchanged phone numbers and emails, we all got along so well. Good people, new friends made, and just a wonderful relaxing experience with my daughter before going to college, and the one day where my son came out from his group home for a boat ride.....I have wonderful pics of him laughing and smiling which is rare, and again, priceless. Thank you for making this vacation one to go down in our family memories as one of the best vacations ever. Take care and we will keep in touch.

This is our second year coming from S Carolina and Maryland to enjoy the Quaint Cottage and hope to continue for many years. We just love this cottage and our hosts, Joanne & Bill. The cottage is well equipped, very comfortable, warm and inviting. Relaxing overlooking the Bay, amazed by the scenery and sunsets is the perfect vacation. We highly recommend this place.

Wonderful Choice!

I would recommend this property enthusiastically. It is perfectly suited for small family or retired couple. A perfect getaway, no matter the season. Very clean, in colonial motif, and owners are wonderful people. Sunsets are spectacular!
