Located on Leroy Island (accessible by vehicle), 'Quiet Waters' was chosen as the name for this charming cottage found in a protected portion of Great Sodus Bay. Swans often nest across the water in the wildlife preserve; wildlife abounds. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation on the bay and enjoy water sports and sunsets, you need look no further!
Sodus Bay is known for spectacular water activities: excellent fishing and boating of all types. 'Quiet Waters' is conveniently located within minutes of several waterfront restaurants and two marinas, one with boat rentals and bait. You can also go by boat to Sodus Point or take the channel into Lake Ontario. Sodus Point features a sandy beach on the lakefront, two lighthouses and maritime museum, charter fishing, dining, and shopping.
Visit Niagara Falls, Watkins Glen Gorge and Speedway, Letchworth State Park, the spectacular Chimney Bluffs or one of the many area wineries and orchards. If racing or gambling are a part of your vacation plans, there are five nearby casinos and several stock car, speedway, and horse racing tracks to choose from. Enjoy a cruise on the barge canal or go antiquing! Bass Pro is only 45 minutes away!
Or you may choose to just relax quietly at your vacation rental. Sunrise coffee on the deck, morning fishing from the dock, afternoon siestas in the sunroom and/or boat rides with the kids, evening cocktails back on the deck; if these appeal to you, then the allergy-free cottage (sorry no pets and no smoking), 'Quiet Waters' is for you!
Myself, my boyfriend, and his daughter stayed at Quiet Waters in mid-July 2014 - what a wonderful stay! The cabin is updated and was very roomy for the 3 of us. The weather was beautiful, not too hot! So quiet, with the exception of the frogs and squirrels at play! We were only about 12 miles from Sodus Point where you can find a couple of great little eateries as well as a beachfront area. Helluva Good is not far and Webster and Rochester are just a 1/2 hour to 40 min away and we were not far from our hometowns so several friends and family were able to come see us and enjoy some great BBQ's on the deck! If you're looking to get away and just kick back and relax, Quiet Waters is the place! The Traister's were very easy to work with too .... good times, thank you so much for sharing your cottage with us!
We (5) had a great week at Quiet Waters. We kayaked to the Point, water skiied, sailed, swam in the bay and Lake Ontario, grilled on the deck and just relaxed. I introduced my friends to Orbakers, Connelly's Cove, Abbott's frozen custard and McGregor's on Irodequoit Bay. Beautiful, quiet and comfortable. The owners are very easy to work with.
We stayed for a week in August and had an awesome time! Lots of great sightseeing and places to eat. The cottage was great, very clean and good amenities. Carol as very helpful with the rental process. We would defininately recommend this cottage for a very peaceful, low key vacation.
