About Jan Ferry-Axman

I am the youngest of 4 siblings who own this cottage. We are a large and loving extended family and this was Grandmas and Grandpas cottage until 2010 when they passed away leaving it to my Brothers and sister and I. We are owners and already were sharing with one another and now YOU! Watch the video on this site if you want to see me,specifically. I live in Rochester NY and love sharing our cottage and helping people find the many fun activities around the area.

Jan Ferry-Axman purchased this cottage in 1982

Why Jan Ferry-Axman chose Sodus Bay

The Ferry family is large and close knit. Our parents purchased the property over 30yrs ago with the idea of fixing it up for retirement. Over the years we have loved visiting and over 30 years we have become a pretty large group who has spent a great deal of time trying out all the activities and restaurants in the area. Two or the four siblings who own the cottage live locally near Rochester but our larger family is spread from San Diego to Fla and NYC. We all LOVE to come back to Sodus and bring our many kids and now grand kids.

What makes this cottage unique

The Sprongs Bluff area, a small cove set into Lake Ontario, is remote and beautiful. We love that we have a huge lot, beautiful sunsets and LOTS of space. The little set of cottages here are completely surrounded by NYS forever wild parkland. The old GirlScout camp next door was also purchased by NYS and turned into Beachwood Sate Park. We have a private path leading back there. Beachwood has Maxwell Creek running through it as well as Maxwell Bay. This makes for great Canoe and Kayak trips into the Maxwell Creek area. Bald Eagles nest on the point and beauty and tranquility surround you. Lastly when you want to eat out, get a fishing charter, enjoy a drink and entertainment, walk a sandy beach and long pier a quick 3-4mi. drive to Sodus Point and additional fun can easily be had. Also we are about 3-4mi. in the other direction to Sodus village for a post office, grocery store,library, bank and more restaurants. We think we have the perfect spot to enjoy peace, beauty quiet and a just about any fun activity.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We appologize for the poor reviews which were unreported to us at the time of rental. We have been renting for 5 years with many repeat customers and these are the first complaints we have had.



We are a family owned cottage and in 2012 we worked hard to fix any issues... completely repainting, repairing and replacing many features including a new grill, sofa and stove, one bed and overhaul of all interior spaces. Additionally, the entire interior was repainted and a new manager for the property and specialized cleaning services were obtained.

Our Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We recently rented this house for our 7th time and have thoroughly enjoyed this gem each of the six years we have stayed. Each time we return, the property wraps itself around us as we are warmly welcomed by the owner Nancy and her family who offer us whatever hospitality we may need to make our stay pleasurable. We are always treated like family.

We always find the house and property to be immaculate and the layout of the house affords spectacular lake views. Our son and daughter-in-law come when they can and we all enjoy the comfort of the house as well as the amenities of the lake and property.

There are many gems to find and explore from Oswego (to the east) to Rochester (to the west) and the Finger Lakes (to the south) but the gem we enjoy the best is the house at the lake. We consider it to be one of the most beautiful, most pure locations that nature can offer.

We already miss our house and our family at the lake and look forward to returning next year.

Nice Cottage, Close to Fishing!!!

  • 5 of 5
My Friends and I (8 total) rented this cottage to go fishing. Was Close to Maxwell Creek, and could accommodate all of us. This was our second trip here and won't be the last. The owner is very friendly and always got back to me quickly. Cottage is tucked away, so you don't have a lot of people running around, you get to relax.

Great cottage on the lake!

  • 5 of 5
My girlfiends and I stayed at this cottage on the lake and will definitely be returning again next year. Great cottage with awesome views of the lake, wonderful grounds to have a camp fire, hang out on the deck or walk along the beach. We all really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was very clean and the owner was very accomodating/friendly. Great girls weekend rental.

Quaint Cottage on the Lake

  • 5 of 5
I rented this cottage for a weekend reunion of friends and by the end everyone was thanking me for finding such an amazing place and asking if we can do it all again next year at the same cottage. Stunning view of the lake from living room as well as the master bedroom and you will spend hours on the back deck taking it all in from there as well. If you're lucky you'll have gorgeous sunset to stare at during the evening. Walk right down to the lake through the backyard. Make a fire in the fire pit. Grill some dinner on the gas grill out on the front deck. Star gaze while laying in the empty field next door.
My friends an I were so busy enjoying the cottage and each others company that we didn't have enough time to do all the activities that Jan, the wonderful owner, had mentioned upon arrival. There are some trails very close by to explore as well a small bay to explore by kayak. Also, a nice beach a few more miles down by the larger Sodus Bay. There is a site manager a few doors down the road in case you have any problems or questions, which we did not. When it's time for bed you'll have plenty of cozy sleeping options. We fit 7 friends comfortably and the cost split between everyone was one of the best deals I've ever come across. It would still be a good deal and perfect place for a couple, or a family. I could go on and on but you just have to experience it for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

Charming Cottage Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This cottage has everything you could want for a vacation -- a park within walking distance (a trail literally starts across the street), boats to barrow for some paddling on Lake Ontario, campfire spot overlooking the lake, internet that's fast enough for streaming netflix/hulu. Plus there are great places to get food that are only a few miles away, including a farmer's market store and great local Mexican restaurant. The place was clean, well-maintained, and the owner was helpful and quick to respond to any questions. Would strongly recommend to anyone in Rochester looking for a an easy spot to getaway to -- less than an hours drive yet you feel like you're in another world.

Owner's Response: So glad if you got to take full advantage of all that is available there. Lake get aways should be fun and easy and Fall is an incredible time to visit. Please know that fall is a secret gem, prices drop but the beauty and fun continue. I hope more people take advantage of a fall getaway. Summers always beautiful but fall has a different kind of quiet beauty, with opportunities for, campfires, walks for fall foliage viewing, local farm markets with apple cider, pumpkins and more.

nice place with a great view

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week there. The views of Lake Ontario are great from the deck or inside the cottage. The sunsets were very nice. We didn't see the meteor showers though due to the clouds.

The cottage beach is stony, but Sodus Point has a nice sandy beach and is only 3 miles away. We found lots to see and do in the area including Chimney Bluff State Park. Burnap's Farm market is a great place and there is a very nice restaurant in Pultneyville.

We had a very nice and relaxing stay with all the conveniences of home.
