About Daniel and Irene Johnson

We are retired and have owned this property for a very long time. Our rates are low compared to other spots on the Finger Lakes.

Daniel and Irene Johnson purchased this cottage in 1992

Why Daniel and Irene Johnson chose Port Byron

The cottage can sleep 12 guests it is on a private road. It is very peaceful. The fishing is GREAT!

What makes this cottage unique

There is no one across the river except for a New York State animal refuge. There are bald eagles, deer, river otters, and bird watching is prime. We also have a firepit for campfires and hilly 4 acres. It can accommodate 2 tents for outdoor sleeping. It is ecological and 'green'.

Wonderful house, wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5
We had three wonderful days in this very well-maintained cottage.
When we arrived we were met by the owners who gave us a tour and were very helpful. What a pleasant people they are!
Description of the property is accurate, though pictures, being very accurate, cannot tell how cozy and nice this place is. Cottage is very clean, cozy, and well-maintained, and sits on a picturesque shore.
Perfect location for exploring Finger Lakes region and visit Niagara Falls.
Definitely would recommend it.

Great Fall Adventure!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful time our extended family had while at this cottage. The owners met us when we arrived giving us a tour of the home - it was exactly what the pictures portray and has every possible amenity you would want. It rained for the first 2 days but that did not stop our avid fisherman and fisherwomen of the group from catching their share of fish on the river. We all enjoyed bonfires, and the fireplace in the living area as the evenings were a bit chilly. The owners were a joy to meet and to work with. Thank You for sharing your home that you've maintained so well over the past years with us. We look forward to another stay at this wonderful home!

Everything met expectations

  • 4 of 5
The description was very accurate.

The property's been well maintained. The location is nearly perfect with a very nice view on Sodus Bay and some bars, restaurants, a gas station and Sodus Point Beach all in walking distance.

The owner's been very friendly and answered very quickly all to all eMail.

I would reccomend this property even for larger groups (like two families, for example).

charming family retreat on tranquil river

  • 5 of 5
My large (2 adults, 5 kids) family needed accommodations while visiting the area for a family reunion. We found Dan and Irene Johnson's Seneca River Cottage to be very attractive, clean, comfortable and well-appointed. Everything we needed was there, from corkscrew and kabob skewers to board games, firewood and fishing poles (you'll need NY fishing licenses).

The Johnsons were very gracious and attentive to our needs, meeting us at the cottage and showing us around. I highly recommend this property, especially to fishing enthusiasts and families who just want someplace comfortable and private to relax and spend time by water. Port Byron is a stop on the old Erie Canal and of interest to canal enthusiasts. We visited nearby Camillus (suburb of Syracuse) for a canal boat tour. Half an hour north is Lake Ontario and of course, the beautiful Finger Lakes are nearby.

My only concern before arriving was that my kids might fall into the river. But THE RIVERBANK SLOPES VERY GRADUALLY, the depth at the end of the dock is only about 4 feet according to Mrs. Johnson, and we found it quite safe (I should point out that my youngest is 8 years old; with toddlers I'd be more careful). The Johnsons provide life jackets. We rented a rowboat from the Johnsons and my children were on the river or the dock all day with no worries.

I'll finish by saying that, because we have so many children, we usually rent houses when we travel. After staying at the Seneca River cottage, my husband said that of all the vacation rentals I've "dragged him to", this was by far the nicest!
