Why Janine chose Lake Ontario

Family owned for three generations, this beautiful summer home has all the comforts for your home away from home. Enjoy unsurpassed pristine natural beauty on this protected Harbor on eastern Lake Ontario. View spectacular sunsets over the lake while relaxing on our private lawn, dock or 2nd floor deck.

What makes this house unique

The spacious 2300 sq ft home has an efficiency apt on the 2nd floor with its own private wood deck overlooking the lake. Plenty of opportunity for family water fun on the lake, at the same time that baby naps upstairs, or grandma reads in a quiet back study room, and dad charters a fishing boat!

Memorial Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Everything we could have asked for and more. The perfect lake house for our Memorial weekend getaway. The owner, Janine and her housekeeper Chris were so easy to deal with and could not have been more welcoming. The second kitchen upstairs along with the balcony deck made laying out, listening to music and catching up with old friends a breeze. It’s a great house for families and friends looking for a place on the water with a large yard, fire pit, and one of the nicest docks in the harbor. We are already planning a return trip next year!

Week in the Harbor

  • 5 of 5

Very nice time, away from the Texas heat.

I am originally from the area and try to get home every year to visit family and relax. This property afforded us the room we needed as well as the quiet to enjoy family. My 9 year old hooked into the fish of his young life on the first day right off of the dock. The location was great and made it easy for some of my old friends to stop by and say hello.

Week of Fishing

  • 5 of 5

What can I say! Great location, with walking distance into Henderson. Wonderful boat dock, we did not need to worry about our babies(boats). Beautiful homes surrounded the property. Great fishing just wish we were in town a week earlier when the Walleye were in. Ryan's Lookout was just around the corner, GREAT FOOD!! General store in town was convenient as was the store across from Wescott Beach, it also has a liquor store. The cottage was quaint and perfect for our family, we also invited my brother-in-law and his fiancé. The cottage is perfect for 2 families as the upstair has a bath and small kitchen. Perfect set up. Can't wait until we return next year!!!!

Unforgettable vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for a two-week stay with family and had a tremendous experience. The pictures just don't do this cottage (and the view!) justice. It is absolutely beautiful. The cottage was clean, spacious, and contained pretty much all amenities any guest would need. The best part of the cottage is the large front lawn with sitting area and chairs. We spent many nights watching the sunsets and marveling at the stars. Located just a short drive from Sackett's Harbor and the Thousand Islands area, there is plenty to do - but also plenty of peace and quiet if that's what you're looking for. The owners were very helpful and responsive to any questions and/or minor issues that arose. We have already booked this cottage again for next summer and hope to make it an annual tradition.

Beautiful and inspiring sunsets on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks at this spacious and well kept cottage. (home) Everything you ever needed was here. All you had to do was bring yourself and those you love.

We had guests fly in from Ok and they were very impressed not just with the cottage but with the surrounding area.

Our hosts supplies great information for surrounding areas of interest and the internet works great which the young people really appreciated.

The listing on this property is certainly accurate, but can't convey the beauty and peacefulness of the sunsets and sunrise.

Can't wait to return again.

New England Lakeside Charm

  • 5 of 5

This is what you think of when someone mentions words like "New England", "Lakeside Cottage", "Charming". The house fronts right on the Harbor -by that, I mean that from the glassed-in front room, upstairs kitchen, and second floor terrace you see the lake front and center. It is bright and sunny, but also has a cozy feel, particularly in the family room which features a large sofa, a rocking chair, and a cast iron wood-burning fireplace (we only stayed during the summer, so never got to fire it up). I also love with the wet bar just off of the living room...it was custom-made using a marine sink off of an old boat -very cool. The interior of the cottage is very clean, in great shape and tastefully decorated. As a boater and fisherman, I love the water access and great fishing (even from the dock), and have to admit that you could not pick a more perfect place to watch the sunset. Looking forward to next year's visit. I would say more, but I don't want to have too much competition when I make my reservations to stay there again next summer. Tight lines!
