About Sarah

This is very much a family affair and this home is a labor of love. After a friend sold it to us in 2005, this house has been a side project and has been improved from the ground up. Everything in this house was done by family from the floors, decoration & complete creation of the concrete deck, driveway etc.This home is very close to our heart. We want other people to enjoy it as much as we have!

Sarah purchased this cottage in 2005

Guests have hosted Christmas, Thanksgiving, Wedding & graduation related events as well as romantic getaway and family vacations...

Lake and Pond Access. Big boat fun and panoramic sunrise and sunsets at the lake. Serene kayaking among water lilies at Long Pond or fish off our dock. Ton's of winter activities including ice fishing and ice skating!

Awesome view!

  • 5 of 5
Our trip was a quick stop in Rochester and we were really pleased to be able to get such a cool place place to stay with short notice. They were nice enough to let us book last minute and we appreciate that. We were here for work, but during the off-times, had a good time relaxing. The weather was a little mild, so we used the firepit a lot. Its a quiet neigborhood, and the view is beyond words. We did get to catch a sunrise one morning too. We liked the cottage and thanks for letting us stay.

Miles away from Ordinary!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a great time at this place, the deck is really the jewel of the whole place. It's massive and fenced so it's safe for after you have a few too many drinks or the kids are running around. We had a great time kayaking, roasting s'mores, the kids biked along the ponds across the street and the neighborhood is quiet and friendly. BBQing by the lake is a great experience and the house was great for our needs. It's a cottage not a five star resort but the pictures speak for themselves for the most part. I guess the only complaint I had was to add another garbage bin since it piles up fast but when I mentioned it the owners brought one out. Will definitely come back next year or for some ice fishing with the guys in the winter.

Great location but not up to par

  • 3 of 5
The house is a lovely house in a great location. It is adorable from the outside. The inside needs some minor work and upgrades. I would say the biggest problem we experienced was the cleanliness of the cottage. The bathtub was dirty. It clearly did not appear to have been cleaned before our arrival. The bathroom rugs also did not look to be freshly laundered and the white towels were obviously washed but they had stains. The house in general was not cleaned properly. All the floors were dirty. We swept and dust mopped on Friday (arrived on Wednesday evening), and there was plenty of dust and dirt to indicate that they had not been cleaned, or had only been cleaned quickly. The kitchen floor was dirty. This was seriously unsettling as I paid an additional $69 for a cleaning fee. I’m positive we left the house cleaner than when we entered it. The kitchen was inadequately stocked. It is advertised as “An oasis for a family vacation, reunion, or graduation party”, yet we were a family of 4 adults and would have had difficulty cooking. The pots and pans are a mix and match of odd sizes. There were no baking pans or measuring spoons. At 60, I have no problem getting around, but the stairs were scary. I would recommend that the stair problem is made known to renters before their arrival. The only place it was mentioned was in the 3 ring binder you have in the house. Clearly it was recognized as a potential problem. The upstairs is in need of a paint job. The stairway looks terrible. The “French provincial” bed was so uncomfortable I had to pull the futon mattress off the futon and put it on top of the bed in order to sleep in any comfort. It was nothing more than a futon itself. No box spring and only inches thick. I was told the bed in the “master” bedroom was better. The “yoga room” had NO electric outlets. As it had no AC, this made it unbearable when it got hot on our last night. Communication with the landlord was also a problem. It took several attempts each time we needed contact in order to get a response. This was disconcerting as we live far away. She also did not accept a credit card as advertised on the website. HomeAway recommends that a credit card be used but only checks were accepted. The location of the house was great. Parking was good and the couch was very comfortable! The quiet was wonderful. Perhaps these suggestions can be utilized and make this a great place to rent.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, we wanted to follow up here: staircase is standard wooden. Cottage was built around 1900 and retains the sizing from that time, narrower than today's modern homes. It is a brand new staircase. we will add photos soon so others can see. Binder suggests for small children not to run on stairs, as practical in any home.

The $69 fee was expressly stated as the insurance/damages coverages charged to each renter. It is not a cleaning fee, nor was there any extra cleaning fee. Contract states cleaning is 'included' in the rental price itself (no extra fee charged)

We told the cleaners about the floor comment, and they are now taking extra care. However please note...the home is cleaned prior to each renter by 2 cleaners...but as the home is directly on the lake, if guests leave doors open even for a short time, the home can acquire dust very quickly during the stay,(mentioned in binder) as with the majority of lakefront properties.

We were a bit confused to the tub comment, as it was cleaned. The tub is the original cast iron which we repainted a gray color. The appearance is not white, as that is not it's color, so maybe that was the confusion?

Listed as basic kitchenware. Groups have enjoyed the cottage for Parties, Christmas and even Thanksgiving in numbers up to 12. We always accommodate renters who have specific requests prior to or during stay.

Renter was contacted each time she called/texted within a short time, before their visit, during and after their visit. We always accommodate guests & always drop by if needed. (ie: management made a trip to the cottage to deliver a card from reviewer's friend)

Yoga room has a fan & window, not listed with a/c/ Other 2 bedrooms and living area has a/c. There are 2 outlets by light switch.

Master bedroom has luxe mattress/yoga room is very comfortable, as are 2 sofas and 2 air mattresses. While we have not had any complaints of shell room bed, we replaced the mattress on that bed with a brand new set.

Great Management

  • 4 of 5
I would like to comment on the outstanding support I received from the management and owner of this rental property. They went far and above any expectations I had with satisfying all my requests, and I cannot emphasize enough the tremendous support I received. A special thank you to Sara who was most professional and friendly in helping me. She is the best I have ever experienced.

Every year, thousands of tourists come to Rochester for the Lilac Festival in May. We also have numerous other local festivals including the Harbor fest, right at Ontario Lake Beach 5 minutes down the road from the cottage.

Fall has Apple Picking nearby and is a great time to enjoy a Romantic Getaway before winter. If you enjoy Cold weather activities, Ice Fishing and Ice Skating happen at the Lake, weather permitting. So there is always a lot going on in this area.
