Climb the steps up over the sand dune and you will be awestruck by the view of Lake Ontario with nothing but water to the horizon where you will see spectacular sunsets and glowing moon rises - from the beach, from the decks & patios and from nearly every corner of the spacious and comfortable house!
Janet and I bought this property as a place to enjoy with family and friends and to share as a rental to help pay for it. We live in the area, just 4.5 miles away so we are close at hand should you have any special needs or emergencies. While this is the first time we have ever rented out a house, we have been vacation home renters for many years and vow to transfer our very best experiences to you and eliminate the stuff that upset us to ensure that you will want to come back year after year.
Lake Ontario is a gorgeous body of water but unfortunately accessible to only those fortunate enough to live on it. This is the place of our dreams because we can enjoy the lake without anyone telling us just how.
BEACH FRONT: Right on the beach, sometimes sandy, sometimes cobblestones but there is always a sandy spot nearby to set up your chairs. The Lake bottom is always sandy and gently sloping, a perfect area for kids. There are sandbars and bigger kids can walk well out before the water is overhead.
BEDROOMS: There is a queen in the master, a double in the second bedroom and a bunk room with 4 bunks and 2 doubles with plenty of room to spare.
All the bedrooms have been remodeled with proper walls and doors, this may sound normal but you should have seen it before! They the walls did not extend to the ceiling and there were curtains over the doorways - This has been a huge improvement! There is also a single bedroom away from everything in the back, plus a pull out couch bed in the living room. All the bedrooms have water views!
LIVING AREAS: Open floor plan, spacious kitchen stocked with everything you need except food. We try to keep a decent supply of condiments & spices. There is a Tops supermarket about 5 miles away. Sofas, chairs and a very large dining room table. Propane wood stove, and a beautiful enclosed sun porch, airtight, for windy or cool days so you can still enjoy incredible views of the lake and can be fully opened on warm days to let in the breeze. Broadband wireless Internet, Stereo, CD, MP3 player, flat screen smart TV with Netflix, VCR/DVD player and a supply of movies.
OUTSIDE: Lots of places to hang out when you are not on the beach! 2-tiered deck with the lower deck seemingly over the water! 12 Adirondack chairs for lounging with family & friends. Picnic table that seats 8 -10. Big brick patio and grill area with a propane gas grill plus a unique wood burning griddle that is perfect for searing steaks!
Pine Grove is a sand dune peninsula situated on Lake Ontario and bordered by the Salmon River and Selkirk Shores State Park.
Entering Pine Grove from Rt 3, you drive down the Pine Grove access road through quiet forest with glimpses of the Salmon River. You will pass the State boat launch which is just 1/2 mile from our house but small craft can be launched from the beach or the Salmon River estuary behind the house.
Lake trolling for salmon, steelhead and lake trout is very popular and there are charter boats available nearby. In addition, from late August though late fall, the Salmon River and the many area rivers and creeks are full salmon as they make their spawing run. It is fairly easy to hook these huge fish right from shore (catching is another question!) but it's also an awsome spectacle just to watch them jumping out in the estuary from a canoe. In late fall though spring, steehhead are in these same rivers and creeks and your can enjoy fishing with much less company for what many say, pound for pound, is the best sport fish to try to catch.
Since we border Selkirk Shores park, you can easily take advantage of the hiking and biking trails trails, playground, camp store and best of all if you are on foot or bike, you can use the park for free.
