About Property Manager/Owner

I have lived in Upstate NY for 15 years. I previously lived in California and Colorado. I have 3 children (2 at home).

Property Manager/Owner purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Property Manager/Owner chose New York

I purchased this property because the view was so beautiful and I love Little Sodus Bay. I don't think you could find a better place to unwind anywhere!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Debby is one of the best hosts I've ever encountered on airbnb. Coming in from Canada during the long weekend, my friends and I were skeptical about a cottage that looked this beautiful overlooking the lake. Debby regularly communicated with our group and offered us tons of suggestions on activities to do and essentials provided in the cottage. On arriving to the cottage, it was spectacular. Very cosy, neat and just like the pics displayed it to be. The dock was a great place to just chill out, play some music and relax. The neighbors were awesome too! You can see from entering into the cottage that Debby cares a lot about her guests well being and having the best stay of their life. If I could give you a rating of 20/5 I would have Debby! Thank you!

We picked the Fair Haven area to vacation at because we had never been to that area of New York and wanted to give it a try. We arrived with no plans and we weren't sure what we were going to do. We were pleasantly surprised that we found something to do everyday. From fishing, the winery and other local attractions we had something to do everyday. The winery had a wonderful tasting room, live music one night and a pairing and tasting event another night. The rental was exactly as pictured. Debby was only a text away and was quick to answer any questions. The cottage was clean, quiet and had everything we needed. Screened in porch was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed a fire every night and watching the boats in the bay. Would definitely choose this area and house for future vacations. The Connolly's Danielsville, Pa.

Wonderful and restful week on the Bay

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed this cabin very much! It is in a perfect location---quiet but close to Fair Haven, and within walking distance of the new Winery. The screened porch was perfect, beds comfortable and everything you need for a relaxing time on the Lake. Will stay again for sure!!!

Instant Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

The cottage welcomed us with comfort!!!! We walked in and were instantly stress free. When we sat outside we didn't feel like there were neighbors, and the bay's never ending beauty and sounds gave us a sense of peace within.

It did rain a good bit. We didn't mind because the changing winds transformed the bay into a new wonder, and the screened in porch kept us dry. I had the great opportunity to see a red fox. I was out at 6 AM with my coffee and It was about 25 feet away. We saw each other about the same time. Both of us froze! It stayed long enough for me to check out it's beauty then turned away in a Fox Trot.

Bill managed to get some fishing in even with the bay so high. He had good luck. He's a catch and release fisherman so he took pictures. :)

When we went to town everyone was so friendly and struck up conversation. We met Big Dave and he asked us to let everyone know. So many smiling faces and hellos! We ate dinner at The Turtle Cove. Great food! We should have ordered one dinner and shared! Plenty of good food and great people.

A huge THANKS goes out to Debra for all she does to provide everything needed and more. We would love to get this cottage every year.

Sally and Bill

The cottage was exactly as pictured in the ads! What a spectacular location on the water. Enjoyed sunrise and the boats sailing right outside the window. An easy walk to the shores of Lake Ontario. Terrific winery within a 5 minute drive. We used the cottage as a jumping off point for exploring the Finger Lakes region, and it was perfect for that. We definitely plan to come back!

Relaxing and beautiful

  • 4 of 5

Debbie was a great. She had a bottle of wine from the local winery waiting for us with 30th anniversary wishes! That was so very thoughtful and so greatly appreciated. We had a little problem with the lock on the house(our fault) and she responded quickly. The house was incredibly equipped. Clean and comfortable. The outside fire pit and chairs were so relaxing. We made a fire every night. We brought our own fire wood and starters. Do your shopping for groceries before you get there as there are no close grocery stores. The only reason we are giving 4 stars as the bed was starting to sag in the middle.

Great time, great house, great hospitality!!!

Thank you Debbie!!!!!

We stayed for a week and had a great time. We were able to take day trips to explore the area and even travel to the mountains one day. The cottage is so comfortable and clean and the screened porch was wonderful. We would highly recommend this property.
