About The Owner

Scott and Martha are retired and living the dream!

We spend our summers here on the same beach as our rentals. We love serving the needs of our guest. Our goal is to make your vacation the very best ever. We spend our winters in the Caribbean on the Island of St Thomas. There, we spend our time hosting to our friends and family who come to visit. There is always plenty of room and plenty to eat at our house!

Our St Thomas house is VRBO listing # 857551 if you are interested.

Why The Owner chose New York

Scott grew up out here on Crescent Beach. Since 1960, Scott used to camp out here on the beach when there were no cottages at all. In 1989 Scott started developing the beach to share his paradise with others. There is no other place like this in NY. The sunsets are considered to be in the top ten in the world! There is no road access to the beach which is one of the best features! It's just a 5 minute boat ride from our marina. It is very private and beautiful! You will love it here!

What makes this cottage unique

Sit on the deck which is directly off your bedrooms and watch your children swim, kayak, paddle boat, canoe or just play on the beach which is ten feet from the deck. Enjoy a camp fire on the bay in your private fire pit. The kids will love our water slide that sets on the upper deck of our boat house next door. There is a ten foot drop into the deep waters of Sodus Bay!

We had a nice time at crescent beach. We did some fishing, swimming, had a lot of fires and enjoyed the beautiful views and sunsets. I wish I could give it a better rating but unfortunately the cottage is not what it appears in the pictures. It is rundown and not very clean. It didn't appear to have been cleaned well before we arrived (which is surprising because the people who came to clean the garbage, grill, hot tub through the week did a great job). All of the bedding and pillows are in rough shape, covered with tons of stains and didn't appear to be cleaned. The beach is described as a sand beach which is deceiving, there is sand but mostly rocks, making it tough to walk on. The owners are nice and helpful and respond to any problems you may have. They did give us 4 bottles of wine and excellent cheese when we arrived and we borrow dvd's and games from them on a rainy day. Martha was super sweet. Unfortunately you don't get what you pay for here. We have rented other homes on Lake Ontario for much less that are newly updated and very clean with sand beaches.

Great, relaxing week with "empty nester" friends. Eight of us and our dog. Swimming on the beach, boating on the bay, fishing, collecting pebbles and beach glass, cooking with friends, guitar playing by the fire pit, relaxing with coctails in the hot tub and the swings. We even did our own Sunday service on the beach! Dedicated accommodating hosts, Martha and Scott who gave us wine and awesome, local cheese. Very quiet, restful place with occasional visits from wandering, friendly dogs. Beautiful sunrises over the bay and spectacular sunsets over Lake Ontario. This was our second vacation there with our great hosts. We look forward to next year! Highly recommend this place for worry and stress-free vacationing!

A Great Family Weekend!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time celebrating my parent's 50th Wedding Anniversary. The location was beautiful as well as the weather. Martha is so friendly and helpful. The kids had a blast. The trip was too short. We hated to leave. I recommend going for a week. Thank you Scott and Martha for helping us create a great weekend for my parents!!

Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

WE had such a great time at Turtle Cay. Scott and Martha are the most wonderful Host and hostess. Our sons had so much fun as Martha taught them how to start and drive our boat. And playing pool in their living room as we picked out movies for our stay. Both were so sweet and helped us out with firewood and Worms for fishing. Scott brought us the most delicious xxx sharp cheese (only found in Sodus Point) and crackers on saturday afternoon. The cottage is bright and sunny and we spent time on the hammock and in the hot tub kayaked in the bay and fished. You have beautilful views of the bay and Lake Ontario in this unique setting on the peninsula. WE brought our dog who enjoyed meeting new friends on the beach and swimming and exploring the beach with us ! Thank you both for a Wonderfully relaxing weekend ! we would do it all again !!

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I booked Turtle Cay cottage for a girls weekend. We were ten ladies, we had a wonderful time. The owners live on the island and are very accommodating. Everything was very clean, cottage, bunk shack, paddle boat, kayaks and also the Jacuzzi. We are planning another weekend next year in "lure" & "Swan" cottages. I cannot say enough about the cottages and owners. What a wonder weekend we had and we are all looking so forward to next year.

My family of 26 just spent 3 day Memorial Weekend at Turtle Cay and Blue Heron. This is our 8th year of going to Crescent Beach with the entire family. Scott and Martha are wonderful people. Since we are the first every year to use the cottages there are a few kinks to be worked out but Scott and Martha are right on them. The cottage was very clean and neat. This year there was heat in every room, new cupboards and plenty of dishes in the kitchen. The children caught a lot of fish right from the dock, used the clean, clear water of the hot tub a couple of times each day. Martha had a scavenger hunt for the children with buried treasure for each of the 10 grandchildren., took walks up and down the beach, and had a fire each night. Cheese and crackers along with wine were waiting for our arrival. We have booked again for next year and cannot wait to go out again. We had a wonderful time.
