LAKE ONTARIO AND SANDY POND WATERFRONT HOME

Sandy Creek Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Enjoy waterfront living in a completely remodeled, DOUBLE LAKEFRONT cottage. This 4+ bedroom home serves as the perfect location for a family vacation, fishing trip or winter wonderland adventure. We aptly named this property “Bayview” for the outstanding views of Sandy Pond from the second story deck. Walk the stairs from the rear of the home to an amazing view of Lake Ontario from a three-story tall deck atop natural sand dunes. Enjoy relaxing on the beach, fishing, biking, amazing sunsets and area attractions from one of a few homes in the area offering double waterfront views, a boat dock and amazing Lake Ontario sunsets.

The Experience: Start your morning with a cup of hot coffee on the deck overlooking beautiful Sandy Pond and conclude your day roasting marshmallows over a fire on the Lake Ontario beach. Some favorite activities at the cottage include:

•Spectacular Sunsets on Lake Ontario from the deck atop a natural sand dune

•Views of Sandy Pond from the front deck

•The private cove beach only accessible to 3 homes

•Swimming in Lake Ontario from the private beach. The water is very shallow up to about 20 yards from the beach making it more “kid friendly”

•Boating Lake Ontario and Sandy Pond. We often take trips to Henderson and Sackets Harbor. For those a bit more experienced with a larger boat; the Thousand Islands or Kingston, Ontario area is a great day trip from the house or Henderson Harbor. “Boater's Beach” is a long, all sand beach close to the home where the “locals” hang out on the beach.

•Fishing from the dock with the kids for Bass and Sunfish, Sandy Pond for Bass and Lake Ontario for Lake Trout and King Salmon. There is also an amazing Salmon Run on the Salmon River near Pulaski (20 minute drive).

•Fine Dining in Sackets Harbor (Tin Pan Galley or Sackets Brewing Co) or Rainbow Shores

•Watching the kids catch frogs on the pond

•Golf at The Elms Golf Course

Bicycling on the many scenic rural roads /Seaway Trail

•Short daytrips to Old MacDonald Farm, Local Wineries, Taking the ferry to Wolf Island/Kingston Ontario, Thousand Islands and the Adirondack Mountains

•Ice Cream with the family at “The Trolley”

•Bonfire on the beach after enjoying the sunset—Don’t forget supplies for Smores!

The Home:

•Location: On a private peninsula between Lake Ontario and Sandy Pond. Large lot with plenty of parking and flat area for a game of volleyball or soccer. The rear of the home backs to a sand dune with a deck that adjoins a third-tier deck atop the dune. The front of the home looks over Sandy Pond and has direct water access via a boating channel.

•Beach: Private Cove beach shared by three homes. The beach changes with the lake water level and weather. At times it is rocky, sometimes it is sandy, but one thing is certain—the privacy and views cannot be beat. The water is great for swimming and shallow enough for kids. When in the water, your feet will be on a nice sandy bottom.

•Boat Dock: There is a dock for this property on the canal accessing Sandy Pond; which will fit most 20 ft. boats or jet skis. Access to Lake Ontario from Sandy pond via nearby channel! There is access for kayaks as well.

•Decks: The West Deck is atop a sand dune with spectacular views of Lake Ontario. The East Deck has spectacular views of Sandy Pond. What more could you ask for?

•Kitchen: Everything in this kitchen is new from the cabinets to the appliances! We have the kitchen stocked with all of the basic cooking utensils and dinnerware.

•Family Room: Relaxing “L-shaped” leather couch with LCD SatelliteTV/DVD. Beautiful Catherdral Ceilings all in natural pine!

•Bedrooms: There are 4 bedrooms and a loft.

Bedroom 1: Second Level room with Queen Bed

Bedroom 2: Second Level room with Queen Bed

Bedroom 3: Lower Level room with 2 Bunk Beds

Bedroom 4: Lower Level room with 2 twin beds

This property is our 'investment in the family'. We love vacationing with our family at Sandy Pond! Tom and Toni live in nearby Binghamton, NY and are avid boaters, nature lovers, and sunset critics!

Toni Dunn purchased this cottage in 2010

Tom and Toni Dunn have vacationed at Sandy Pond for decades and were lucky enough to purchase their dream vacation home on Renshaw Bay Road. With a growing family and a bit of luck, we were able to purchase another vacation home in 2010 which allows us to host extended family at the lake. The Dunn's along with their 2 daughters and son joined together to purchase and completely remodel this property. Their kids travel from Florida and Virginia as much as they possibly can to vacation at Sandy Pond. We all love the beach, fishing and the many attractions in the area; but most of all it's the best place to just relax!

Unique benefits include: Double Waterfront, private beach, completely remodeled, two scenic decks and boat dock access.

Outstanding bass, trout & salmon fishing!

Numerous fishing derbies & renowned salmon run in the fall.

Tug HIll Plateau is great in the winter for x-cross country skiing & snowmobiling!

EVER BEEN TO HEAVEN???

  • 5 of 5
This is a piece of heaven for sure. The home is lovely in every way. Well furnished decks overllooking the pond and lake Ontario as well as evening cookouts were enjoyed all, Our group of 7 had great sleeping beds, soft linens, and plentiful towels in the spacious bathroom. You have a great dock just across the road for your boat. We brought a 28' proline fishing boat and had ample room to get in and out to the Renshaw pond or to Lake Ontario.My sons fished the Salmon river mostly, and we all had a fantastic time. The kitchen was well appointed also and with a washer dryer, the little ones were always clean as were the fishermans clothes. Toni & Tom were soooooo nice and have put everything in place to make for a splendid vacation for you and your family.There are nearby Amish farms for the kids to pick apples, pumpkins or take a hayride. Old McDonnalds farm was a real treat for the kids while dad is playing golf or fishing for the "big ones". Our group caught lots of big fish, and the little girls with us caught their first fish right from the dock. We plan to come again and if you get the chance to come here do not hesitate to " take your trip to paradise. ". Thanks so much Toni and Tom for letting us enjoy a slice of heaven. Laura & sons

EVEN BETTER THAN THE PHOTOS....

  • 5 of 5
Our extended family group (ranging from age 20-79) had a spectacular week at Bayview. The owners Tom and Toni were helpful, warm and welcoming from our very first inquiry and throughout our stay.

The 3 decks provided hours of enjoyment and gorgeous sunsets. There was space for our whole group to be comfy. The furnishings/décor were very nice and the kitchen is the best stocked I have ever encountered in a rental home.

Nearby we visited wineries, cute towns, the 1000 Islands, and Ft. Drum. There were kayaks and a boat available also. We hope that our son remains stationed nearby long enough for us to visit at least once more. We had a truly great time. Thank you to Tom and Toni for sharing your beautiful home with us!

LAKE ONTARIO/SANDY POND RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
Toni and Tom
We loved our week at your beautiful home. We had perfect weather. It was relaxing and the lake was warm enough to go swimming in every day. We spent some days at the house and then other days out and about driving to the lighthouses and waterfalls. Everything we wanted to see was an hour or less away, including Bolt Castle. We think the dogs loved it even more. They loved the beach and swimming plus all the state parks around that we visited with them. There are too many great things to say. The best thing is it is less than 5 hours from our home. We hope to return again!
Thanks Tracy and Ted

AMAZING PLACE! GREAT FOR KIDS AND DOGS (AND THE ADULTS WHO BRING THEM)!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful vacation destination for our family (2 adults, 4 year old, 7 month old, 1 water loving dog)! The house was really clean & well maintained, well stocked with everything we could ever need, the beach was perfect (shallow out SO far, great for our 4 year old and pup!), the sunsets from the deck were amazing, and the loft was a fantastic place for our son to sleep. The kayaks were great for a tour of Sandy Pond, and the little dock across the road from the house was perfect for our son's first perch fishing experience (he caught 3 in five minutes!) We had a great time!

FANTASTIC HOME

  • 5 of 5
We just loved the Dunn's home on Sandy Pond. The house is beautiful and has everything you would need. Linens were top shelf and kitchen well stocked. Very high quality. 9 of us stayed here and had more than enough room. Would highly recommend this VBRO rental. Thank you so much to the owners for making our stay a memorable one.

FABULOUS

  • 5 of 5
This beach-side home in the dunes of Lake Ontario is a hidden paradise. It was everything that was listed and more. The property was spotless and wonderfully maintained. The amenities could not have been more inclusive. My family and I totaled 3 young ones and five adults. We spent most of our time on the beach, but also ventured to Sacket's Harbor for dinner and a stroll through the village. There is also Old McDonald's farm for the kids. I would highly recommend this fabulous summer place to anyone.
We can't wait to go back again next year.
