SPECTACULAR PANORAMIC LAKE VIEWS IN ROMANTIC, PRIVATE SETTING

Wilson House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Now taking reservations for 2014!

This is not your typical cottage.

Located on 200 feet of lakefront with breathtaking views of both the sunrise and sunset from your private deck, this lovely one bedroom house is perfect for a romantic getaway for two.

45 minutes from Rochester, Buffalo and Niagara Falls and right off the New York State Parkway, the location couldn't be more convenient. With cable TV, WiFi, public water, air conditioning and ample heat plus countless amenities, you'll be on vacation the moment you arrive.

Just as lovely in the spring and fall as it is in the summer, this location is the perfect spot for parents visiting students in Brockport, Rochester, Niagara or Buffalo. Lake Ontario turns a vibrant dark blue in the spring and fall and a walk among the changing foliage in Lakeside Park is simply spectacular. On chillier nights, our fire pit provides a cozy place for you to comfortably linger well past sunset. Long summer evenings will amaze you with skies loaded with stars, the likes of which can only be seen in the country.

The unit is all on one floor, and includes a queen-size bed, full kitchen and living room, as well as a full bathroom with shower. The entire house has been completely remodeled, and is absolutely gorgeous inside.

The property borders on Lakeside Park, where you can enjoy miles of hiking along the breathtaking bluffs on the southern shore of Lake Ontario. A new 18 hole disc golf course is also available for your enjoyment.

In the area you will find several golf courses, fresh produce, a drive-in movie theater and wonderful restaurants. The house is nestled in a lakeside hamlet less than 15 minutes from the Erie Canal. Kayaking and canoeing opportunities along local creeks and waterways abound. You will find each nearby town loaded with unique shops, local landmarks and fascinating history. When you return back to the lake, you'll find the perfect location to relax and read that book you have been looking forward to. Most importantly, you'll have a chance to reconnect with nature and each other.

Check our online calendar... it is updated daily and reflects current availability.... 2014 reservations are already underway!

My husband and I grew up in the Rochester area. We both came from large families and we love to travel and entertain. We enjoy this unique location on the lake so much, when the opportunity arose, we bought the house next door! We're happy to provide you with tips on good restaurants and fun things to do in the area, as well as directions on how to get wherever you want to go. We love this place and we want to make sure you do too!

Maureen Farnand purchased this house in 2010

This location is ideal in so many ways: it is 45 minutes from home, it is quiet and private, it has gorgeous views of the lake, Lakeside Park is a hidden treasure and it is in our back yard, we can leave on a Friday after work and enjoy dinner on the deck an hour later. Few people know about this location. The property tends to stay in families for generations and has remained a hidden treasure we were lucky enough to learn about through my uncle who introduced our family to this beautiful spot in 1959.

There are few places I know of, where you can walk outside in your pajamas, cup of coffee and newspaper in hand and as you head to the deck you look out on the vastness of the lake and see six beautiful swans gliding by. You have to wonder... how could I beat this?

JUST AN AMAZING PLACE AT A VERY LOVABLE COMMUNITY

  • 5 of 5
Me and my husband spent incredibly good time at this property. The area is like in a tale. So romantic. The property is very well maintained. The offer description is exactly how everything looks. It is perfect for two. However we were with 4 month old twins. The owners provided us with ‘Pack and Play’ port-a-crib. You will find information for basically all the attractions in the area. And Ah the sunsets: amazing colors that you can enjoy every end of the day. I highly recommend this place.

AWESOME EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
Maureen and Darcy went out of their way to make sure we had a terrific experience. They are both wonderful people and we plan on going back to the cottage in the future.We arrived on my wife's birthday and they were very accomodating. The cottage itself is perfect for 2 people to get away and the location is fabulous! I can't say enough about Maureen from the time I started emailing her to plan the getaway to the time we arrived she was very professional and went above and beyond in many ways! Awesome people- awesome cottage!! I recommend highly!!

ROMANTIC, BEAUTIFUL SETTING OVERLOOKING LAKE ONTARIO

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and this property was just the right place for us to stay. We enjoyed our cottage, which was very cozy and located in a nice quiet area overlooking the lake - what a beautiful view! We were able to take walks, play frisbee golf, sit on the patio, or sit by the fire pit and look out over the lake. We also liked the idea of being centrally located to other attractions that we were able to visit such as Niagara Falls and Finger Lakes. We would definitely go back to this cottage. The owners were very nice too. What a nice way to spend our anniversary!

FABLOUS

  • 5 of 5
the directions to get to the property were excellent; the owners were available for "passing of the key" and answered all our questions easily. the cottage itself is open, and has great views of the lake from inside or from the wrap around porch. the deck was like a great bonus and the sunrise and sunsets were spectular.
the kitchen had adequate supplies for cooking in and the house overall for amenties would be 5 star in our opinion.
the location is great and we did not get to do everything that caught our interest. their were lots of activities going on from free concerts to the quiltbarn trail(my personal favorite). the area has lots of history form the war of 1812, the Erie canal trailway and Niagara Falls is less than an hour away.
I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a great place to relax.

BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE WITH OUTSTANDING VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
I just spent 4 nights at this cozy little cottage on Lake Ontario. This little home is absolutely gorgeous & is well equipped with everything that you could possibly need. It is also immaculately maintained both inside and out! The location is also perfect! The beautiful views of the lake from both the porch deck and the lakeside deck are amazing. The lakeside deck became my favorite spot to relax. I was so excited when I was visited frequently by friendly hummingbirds, saw two beautiful white swans & viewed three spectacular sunsets! It is a very quiet and peaceful place to visit and I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone that needs some R & R. I absolutely loved my stay!
Thank you Maureen & Darcy for sharing your lovely home & amazing lakeside view with me.
I look forward to visiting you again in the near future!

Your story of the bold hummingbird stealing a sip of your peach ice tea on the deck, was so charming! I am so glad you decided to book another stay in August. We look forward to seeing you then!
