Affordable Luxury Vacation Home on Sodus Bay w/ Private Beach, Dock, & Parking
average rating of 4.9714284 based on 36 reviews

Lovely home and location for our large family.

  • 5 of 5

Our large family of 8 adults and 5 children were very happy with Jim and Marji's beautiful home. This was our first time to western NY and to Lake Ontario. We loved the spacious home and location on Sodus Bay. Although the bay and lake were swollen due to lots of rain and the docks were partially covered with water, we still enjoyed the paddle boat, and kayaks. We rented a pontoon boat and took it out to the lakes edge. We like relaxing vacations with minimal stimulation and this place fit that bill. The upstairs apartment was perfect for one son, his wife and their 2 kids. The downstairs was perfect for the kiddos to go and play. We loved the deck as well.

Jim and Marji were wonderful to deal with and we would certainly rent from them again.

Beautiful spot on Sodus Bay

  • 5 of 5

We were summer neighbors growing up at Sodus Bay, so for our 50th Anniversary we decided to take the family to the place where it all began. We live out of state and most of the family had only heard of Sodus and all the special memories it held for us. This beautiful spacious home was just perfect. It very comfortably held all of us and quickly became our home away from home for one awesome week. The water was high, but the dock was out of water. The grandkids loved fishing off the dock and used the kayaks, paddle boat and canoe to explore along the shore. We rented a pontoon boat for a few days, toured around all our favorite spots on the bay and went out to Lake Ontario where we could go at a faster speed. We all spent most of our time out on the front deck with its wonderful view and enjoyed listening to all the birds every morning. Because of the high water, there were "no wake" rules on the bay. At first we were disappointed, however it made things very peaceful and quiet. Didn't miss the noisy boat traffic. We did take a cooler for the front deck to keep drinks cold which helped keep the refrigerator space available for food. Marji and Jim were great to work with, very accommodating. We would definitely recommend this property. The whole family now shares our love of this wonderful place!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Great house for a quiet week with close friends. Fantastic sunrises(and sunsets) on the deck. Fires by the water. Dock space for our boat.

Far enough away to be peaceful, close enough to everything you need. Wonderful time!! Would love to do it again!!

Extended Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My extended family shared a week of togetherness in this amply sized home and had a wonderful time. We all enjoyed the beautiful view. Our fishermen, old and young, caught fish right off the dock. We spent days at the close by Sodus Point Beach making sand castles, swimming and playing on the playground. Captain B and First Mate Mary took us out on a tour of Sodus Bay and allowed our almost 3 year old to drive the boat. Memories were made in a beautiful and comfortable setting.

Awesome Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

This is definitely a house with amazing views. The open kitchen, living room, dining area gave us plenty of room, even when there were 10 of in the house. The dining room table was spectacular, but we quickly covered it with the felt tablecloth to avoid any damage. As in my house, everyone wants to drop all their items on the table. The upstairs suite was great. I stayed up there alone and welcomed the privacy every morning. Very relaxing. Having three bedrooms and three bathrooms on the main level was also great. No waiting. The extra beds for teenagers came in handy in the lower level. I only went down there once actually. We gathered around the big tv in the main living area everynight to watch the Olympics. I would highly recommend this property. Nothing will disappoint. We rented a pantoon and also had room for my nephews boat. We all had a wonderful time. I would definitely go back. This house books quickly so don't wait.
