Rochester Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, Sleeping Porch for 2, 1 bath cottage

Location, location, location! Situated on the shores of Long Pond just off Lake Ontario. Year round, central air and heat. Bring your boat, jetskis and kayaks to enjoy this fabulous gem. Just 10 minutes from Charlotte's beautiful beaches, park and antique carousel. 15 minutes to Hamiln Beach, 45 minutes to Niagara Falls and so much more. Choose from 14 local restaurants, or go 20 minutes to enjoy all that downtown Rochester has to offer. This cottage has a long, intriguing history during prohibition days.

Renovated and updated for today's needs while keeping the original heart and soul of the cottage, we offer Cable TV, DVD player, sound system and complimentary WiFi.

Take long walks or bike rides though our quiet residential neighborhood. Play tennis, basketball, or let the kids play in the neighborhood playground within a 5 minute walk from the cottage. Sit on the back porch overlooking the lake with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. It doesn't get much better than this!

Why Susan Alvarez chose Lake Ontario

Location, location, location! Enjoy this newly restored 1928 cottage. This cottage was designed with an eclectic touch of old and new. Situated on the banks of Long Pond, wake up to the sights and sounds of the lake Enjoy a gentle morning breeze lakeside with your first cup of coffee in your own shady private backyard. Close to all area conveniences, yet private enough to have a quiet getaway. Need a break from water play? How about GEVA Theater for a different kind of play? Or Strong Museum of Play!

What makes this cottage unique

Although we are a year round cottage, we are now taking reservations for the summer of 2016. After enjoying a great day of golf, bicycling, beach, museums or galleries -come back to your own private oasis on the lake.

Homey and well-equipped, wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous home with dock and calm waters for fishing and playing in the water. Great fire-pit and awesome chairs. Detailed home with many touches - things I wouldn't have thought to ask about. Like very high quality grill tools, great first aid kit - my son scraped his knee and there was an antiseptic&analgesic spray that worked wonders, Extra blankets for cool nights, some fun water tubes and even life jackets (we brought our own, but how thoughtful to have extra!). Long pond connects right to Lake Ontario, so brave adventurers can head out to that end of the pond. There were no paddles for the provided canoe (the canoe was another extra we did not expect), but we brought our own raft and that worked perfectly.

I will say that although it could sleep 6, it really is a 2 bedroom. We were thinking of having a relative stay for one or two nights but the fold out couch was not very comfortable so we collectively decided against it. The extra bed is a pull-out couch right on the screened and insulated back porch which is great to listen to the water. However, the windows from one of the main bedrooms open up into the porch right over the pull-out bed, which isn't great if one person snores.

Susan was very welcoming and not only did I recommend her to my family and friends, I will keep her properties at the top of my list next time I look to rent.

Owner's Response: Jamie, Thank you for the wonderful review of Pond Cottage. It is a very special place for our family, and it was nice to share it with you and the boys. We hope that we will see you again! Don't forget the fishing poles! Susan

Awesome stay at this quaint cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The Pond Cottage is a charming, pristine rental! Susan thought of every detail in the decor and providing necessary items. Even though we live only about 30 minutes away, it felt as though we were thousands of miles away from home. The bedding and linens are beautiful and the porch overlooking the pond is so comfortable and relaxing. We can't wait to stay there again and enjoy this serene and private setting!
