Overview

Middlesex Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Looking for something a little different for your lakeside vacation? Escape to Sycamore Landing. The 165 feet of level lakefront gives you plenty of elbow room and unobstructed vistas of the Bristol Mountains and a 180 degree lake view of the quiet south end of beautiful Canandaigua Lake. The private, well maintained, gravel road minimizes traffic and maximizes privacy. Retreat from the daily grind and enjoy lake living in an incredible natural setting for a week or just a long weekend. Our traditional lake cottage offers everything from boating, swimming, kayaking and fishing to experiencing a world where bald eagles fly from their nearby nesting grounds, hummingbirds flock to your window daily, ducks and geese wander and herons stand watch in the marshlands at the end of the lake. Artists, writers or those just seeking a refuge come rejuvenate and relax under the large sycamore tree which beckons you to sit and soak up the incredible beauty of Canandaigua Lake and rolling hillsides.

Simply walk out the door and in a few steps you are at the water. Use the permanent deck to soak up some sun or catch your dinner. The screened front porch provides you the traditional “lake” feeling - have a meal, a cool drink or just relax and read a good book (and maybe fall asleep!) while gazing out on a panoramic view of the lake. The sliding glass door from the porch leads to the indoor living space with large windows featuring spectacular lake views welcoming you to relax without taking you away from the lake. Sleep sofa offers additional sleeping options. Our eat-in kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to prepare meals. Enjoy your morning coffee as you sit at the dinette and watch the resident hummingbirds flock to the multiple feeders. A washer and dryer are located right off the kitchen for your convenience. Down the hallway are 2 bedrooms and a full, modern bath. The master bedroom overlooks the lake while still being shaded by our lovely sycamore tree. The 2nd bedroom offers a view of the cliffs behind our cottage and can sleep two with the supplied roll-a-way bed.

The yard offers multiple grassy level areas to play yard games, stretch out under the sun or enjoy a bon fire. The front yard offers plenty of room for lounging lakeside, while the back yard is great for barbecuing (gas grill available) and viewing the picturesque cliffs. In the springtime or after a heavy rain, enjoy our spectacular 80+ foot waterfall! Just a few steps up to the large side yard, yields additional space for a tent, yard games or second bon fire pit with spectacular vistas of the south end of the lake.

Bring your boat and use the available mooring whips installed on the permanent dock for your use. Woodville boat launch just across the lake makes for an easy launch and there is room for trailer storage at the cottage during your stay.

Fisherman can get a hassle-free, early morning start from this ideal location. Ice fisherman can easily launch their efforts from our dock or shore.

Kayakers love this location. Enjoy the calm open lake water of the south end or venture into the West River Marsh and enjoy up to 4 miles of easy paddling while you spot bald eagles, herons, turtles and more! Bring your own kayak or use the ones provided.

Sycamore Landing makes a terrific home base for land lover activities as well. Downhill skiers are just 20 minutes from Bristol Mountain and XC skiers have numerous ski trails available including those in the Hi Tor Management Area, Cumming Nature Center and Bristol Mountain. Hikers can choose all types of hiking experiences from novice to challenging including the Parish Glen / Conklin Gully (12 Waterfalls). Hunters can use the lakeside setting as base camp while hunting their favorite public hunting grounds.

We chose this location because it is “the road less traveled”, yet still centered among a wide variety of activities and amenities. Canandaigua offers convenient shopping, waterparks, and historic landmarks, while Naples (15 min.) is home to a wonderful artisan community that offers everything from wood carvings to watercolor paintings and everything in between. Looking for a home base for your wine tours? We are just a short run to many of the finest wineries on Keuka and Seneca Lake wineries.

During your stay at Sycamore Landing you will always feel “connected” to the lake and nature, whether you are inside or out, engaging in activities on the lake or off, or just looking for some rest and relaxation with one of the most picturesque settings in the world. We know you’ll enjoy your stay.

Perfect visit

  • 5 of 5
This was my fourth visit to Sycamore Landing. The fall colors were amazing and the property perfect in every way. We enjoyed kayaking, fishing off the dock, sitting on the porch enjoying the views, and feeling just like we were at home. The beds are so comfortable and the kitchen well stocked with everything you need to make meals for the family. The city of Canandaigua is just 35 minutes away and a fun place to shop, visit the boat houses or shop at Wegman's. (My favorite). Naples is only about 15 minutes away for a closer grocery, library, dining, etc. I will definitely return. In fact, I already have my reservation for next year!!!!

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5
My two boys (ages 10 and 12), my parents, and I stayed at this wonderful place in mid-May. I absolutely loved being right on the water and being able to see the open water from virtually every square inch of the house (even out the second bedroom and dining area windows). We also appreciated the fact that - in contrast to the stretch of homes closer to the end of the lake which are packed together like sardines - this home has plenty of space on either side between it and the neighbors, which gives it a nice feeling of privacy and more of a connection to the surrounding nature.

We had a great time using the kayaks. Two of the days we were there, the water was as smooth as glass, and it was an easy paddle to the grasses at the end of the lake. If the weather had cooperated, we would have taken them out again to find and explore the river pathway through the grasses (we found out only too late that the open river enters the lake more toward the middle, not along the shore).

The house is very nicely set up, with extremely comfortable furniture on the porch and in the living room. We all spent many hours just sitting on the porch and feeling the breeze and looking at the water. I appreciated the fact that the sleeper sofa was actually set somewhat apart from the rest of the living area furniture, so there was no need to move anything to open up the bed.

The place really had all the comforts of home and was very well maintained and clean. The owners were very responsive and very easy to work with. The owners even supplied extremely detailed instructions, complete with pictures, of how to get there, which we unfortunately did not consult until our GPS dumped us at a dead end into the parking area of the house next door and helpfully told us that we needed to walk the 100 feet from that point. (The owners pointed out this was a common outcome in the very helpful instructions, but I hadn't read that far.)

Overall, an absolutely wonderful place which I would recommend to anyone!

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5
If you're looking for an escape from the hectic, fast-paced everyday living, this quaint cottage is the place to be. The sunrises are exquisite and the sunsets are peaceful and quiet. Sycamore Landing definitely earns a 5-star rating. Sally and Bob were most helpful in getting me settled in. I'm certainly looking forward to a return visit.

Pre-wedding and honeymoon getaway

  • 5 of 5
We were so relieved to have this relaxing cottage space to entertain our immediate family and escape wedding planning stresses. Then we continued the vacation after the ceremony to simply enjoy the area. We look forward to coming back!!
The descriptions, photos, cleanliness, and amenities were spot on. The owners were a delight to work with.
We loved kayaking, swimming, grilling out, and having a cool retreat. Coffee on the screened porch in the early morning was especially charming. The seclusion was perfect for us!
We'd recommend bringing groceries down from Canandaigua though, as the prices and selection in Naples were steep and limited.

We felt so welcome and so at home. We are definitely coming back. In fact, our reservation has already been made and confirmed!!!!!!

If you seek rest, relaxation and renewal then Sycamore Landing is for you. The property listing and photos are accurate. The property is well maintained both inside and out. Sally is a pleasure to work with. Upon arrival all you need to do is settle in, sit back, and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
