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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
My husband, mother-in-law and I enjoyed this beautiful property for a few nights. While the weather was not ideal, we had a great time playing cards and games overlooking the beautiful Lake Ontario bay. Very private, roomy and comfortable for an older property. Lots of character! Sunsets are stunning. Family was very pleasant and enjoyable to talk with and answered all questions and requests.

Lovelly place on a grassy hill above beach area. Beautiful view of lake, birds, sunsets, boats. Easily swim able spot. Had a wonderful time despite three days of rain. Apple orchards and nice woods with trails for walking; birding paradise. Quiet, private spot. Roomy and includes front and rear decks with plenty of seating. Appreciate the nice gas grill and the pet friendly attitude.
The inside of cottage was cozy and comfortable with ample seating and two tables for playing games.
Of note- spotty Internet service and dryer was not working.
All in all, three 50 something women had a great time and would highly recommend this spot. Well worth the cost.

Owner's Response: Thanks! We are pleased you enjoyed your stay! We regret the dryer was broken, particularly considering the rain. It stopped working just before your visit, and I could not get a new one installed as quickly as we would have liked. A new one is in place now. We apologize for it being broken that week. Don't you hate it when appliances break...I sure do.

The internet is picked-up from my sisters cottage, right next door and I will try increasing the signal or moving it closer. Thanks again, Please come visit us again. Jan

COZY LITTLE CABIN!

  • 4 of 5
This is a cozy cabin right on the lake! I was fishing at Maxwell Creek, this is a perfect location for that.
A private setting, on the water, with the veiw! Very quiet as is off the main road. The owner was very helpful with local restrants and stores,(a map) Clean and well kept place. A full kitchen, plus the dishwasher!
For fishing this location is perfect. Close to the bait shop(Sodus Point) Maxwell is 1/4 mile down the road.
Makes for a quick lunch, than back to fishing!
