I am a fiber artist and my partner, Bass is a songwriter. Sandy Pond is a wonderful place for us to escape the heat of our home in Southern Florida as well as reconnect with friends in our native upstate New York. The natural beauty, quiet area and spectacular sunsets fuel our creative spirits.
Sharon Spaker purchased this cottage in 2011
Our rental cottage offers a large lot for outdoor activities in a neighborhood that is less populated than much of the waterfront. The cottage was meticulously remodeled, furnished and equipped in August 2015 for vacation rentals.
Sandy Pond offers a diversity seldom found in one place. Wile resembling a lake, this encircled bay has access to miles of Sandy beaches directly on the waters of enormous Lake Ontario. The calm and warmer waters of the pond are a serene place to kayak, canoe and paddle board. Lake Ontario is perfect for large game fishing and boating. Sandy Pond is a bass haven and hosts many tournaments.
I stayed in this cottage with my husband and two other friends for two nights. The cottage itself was SUPER clean and beautiful. It was fairly close to the lake as advertised, however, the access to the lake itself was on the landlord's property along with the hub tub and ALL the water toys such as paddle, kayaks and other items. This can be an uncomfortable setting since the owner of the property is right next to you! Although they are very nice and accommodating.
We also brought our two dogs (medium and small sizes). Despite the fact that the cottage is listed as pet friendly, pets are not allowed to be left unattended in the cottage. We have rented several pet friendly properties throughout the world using VRBO, and this is the first time we ever heard of such an odd rule. If you have pets and you want to explore the area, for example, go to restaurants, wineries, fishing or even go to the grocery store, this is NOT the place for you since your pet must be with you at all times.
My husband, two daughters and I had a really nice time over Labor Day weekend. The house was perfect for our needs. We enjoyed morning paddle-boat rides, afternoons at the Sandy Island Beach, and an after dinner dip in the hot tub.
If the house had been right on the water and the hot tub right on the property of this house, it would be 5 stars. Sharon and Bass were wonderful to work with and very professional.
My husband, two sons and I had a wonderful stay in Sandy Creek at Sharon's cottage. The cottage itself was clean, cool and very comfortable. Access to the pond was very easy and the availability to use the canoe and paddle boat was very helpful. My younger son caught lots of fish off the dock and my older son really enjoyed the hot tub! The area itself was quiet and peaceful- a wonderful place to relax.
Thank you to Sharon and Bass for their hospitality and advice about what to do and where to go in the area. We had a great experience!
This is a small, but very cozy and convenient cottage that has almost everything one needs, except for an oven and a dishwasher, but that wasn't a problem for us at all. Very warm welcome by Sharon, who gave great tips about what to do in the area. There is an awesome collection of water toys (including a pedal boat) that were especially appreciated by our kids. The water is shallow so that children can safely access the pond. Plenty of swimming and boating opportunities in walking distance and nice state parks only a short drive away. Overall, we had a great stay and would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to spend a quiet time in a beautiful area.
First let me start off by saying this cottage was beautiful inside, however from the pictures posted a little deceiving to the setting of it. It appears to be a little more private than it actually is. In order to enjoy the view of the water or the hot tub, you had to walk across the road and down a driveway which brought you to the owners backyard. My husband and i were expecting a more private setting with everything located on the property of of the cottage. The owners Sharon and Bass met us at the property and listened to our concerns of it not meeting our expectations and were more than understanding. In closing, i would say if you are looking for privacy and waterfront property, this location would not be ideal.
Couldn't ask for better people to rent from! Such great help to tell us great places to go to around the area! Had so much to do- wish we had more than 4 days to see everything! The cottage was just beautiful and everything was so clean! Loved there were board games offered as well as plenty of water toys! The only light suggestion is maybe mirrors in the bedrooms so when one person is in the shower another one can dry their hair in the bedroom. Honestly that's it! We are already figuring out when we can rent again!! Thank you
Sandy Pond is actually a large sheltered bay on Lake Ontario just south of the beautiful Thousand Islands region. Your cottage is just across the pond from the popular Boater's Beach where you can enjoy the calm water of the pond or the miles of sandy beaches on the lake. Make day trips to the many area attractions, relax and enjoy the wildlife. You are apt to see bald eagles.
Sandy Pond provides excellent sport fishing and the kids will catch dozens of fish on the dock. Fly fishing at Douglaston Manor, charter boat fishing, and world class salmon runs delight the fishermen.
