Our Sandy Pond Lake Ontario rental is directly across from the channel to Lake Ontario. Surround yourself with quiet and privacy in this 3-bedroom waterfront cottage on Sandy Pond, harbor to Lake Ontario, New York. Lake Ontario, NY is an ideal location for family summer vacations, Lake Ontario fishing, Salmon River fishing, or fall hunting trips. The cottage has plenty of room outdoors for the kids (big and little) to play. Lake Ontario beaches are kid friendly; fine sand makes great castles; tubes are welcomed. The sandy bottom of Lake Ontario gently slopes making for gradual depth and you can see your toes in neck deep water. Fishermen rejoice! The private 40-foot dock in front holds two Lake Ontario size boats and makes access to Lake Ontario, Salmon River and six feeder streams simple. Kids enjoy fishing for rock bass, perch, sunfish, and giant bowfins from the dock. There are boat launches at the five marinas on Sandy Pond, as well as on Salmon River.
You can river fish for king salmon, and steel head not only on the Salmon River but also on North and South Sandy Creeks, 2 - 4 miles away. Access the creeks on foot or from Lake Ontario by boat. For hunters, geese and ducks frequent Sandy Pond and many state marshes along Lake Ontario. Lakeview Marsh hunting area is 3,461 acres and is only two miles away. There are 29,034 acres of state land nearby for hunting deer and turkey. The evenings are especially beautiful at Sandy Pond. The pond comes alive with breaking fish looking for dinner and honking geese and quacking ducks heading home to roost. Great Blue Herons often show up for an evening meal on Sandy Pond! Everyone enjoys evening sunsets by the campfire near the waters edge. Marshmallow roasting is optional.
Swim at Southwick Beach or Sandy Pond Beach, both on Lake Ontario. Each is clean and has facilities. Southwick has a playground and picnic area. Across Sandy Pond is a huge sand dune that lies between Sandy Pond and Lake Ontario. The Nature Conservancy owns the sand dune. They protected it with beach grasses and a boardwalk that allows foot traffic to pass from the Sandy Pond side of the dune to the Lake Ontario side. A bird sanctuary has been established north of the main beach. With a boat you can motor over to boaters beach and enjoy the fine sand and seemingly endless Lake Ontario beach. The Sandy Pond side of boaters beach drops quickly and many people water ski from there. The Lake Ontario side gently slopes making for gradual depth, which is great for swimming. Boaters beach is truly special.
