We LOVED it!

Not a fancy place but it is extremely relaxing, comfortable and a beautiful setting. It's one of the best vacations our family has taken. We loved the fact the deck was enclosed so we didn't worry about our dog. The sunrises, sunsets, fresh air, and water were absolutely amazing. Jan went out of her way to make sure we knew the property and ensure we had great tips about the area. We did not want to leave. Thank you for sharing your place with us.

Absolutely amazing!

This was the perfect vacation spot on so many levels. We'll describe some of them: 1) We were worried about having fun for all of our kids (ages 1.5, 4, 11, 13). They all had a blast. Skipping rocks, finding interesting rocks, kayaking, swimming, hiking....nobody was left out. There were kayaks, a canoe, a row boat, a paddle boat, and life jackets of all sizes on site for us to use. 2) The landscape is truly breathtaking. You're sleeping 32 steps away from the water. The sunrises and sunsets are incredible! 3) Near other great spots to explore. Chimney Bluffs are 20 minutes away, Sodus Point with a lighthouse and beach is 10 minutes away, Niagara Falls is a little over 2 hours away. Those were the places we went and enjoyed a lot. 4) The house is small (2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom), but we all fit well. Everyone was comfortable. 5) Jan is really great to work with. She was very responsive to our questions before the trip and during the trip. She gave us a tour of the house when we arrived. To summarize: This was a great vacation spot for my whole family. We can't wait to go back again! Dan and Sara Stiefel

Relaxing holiday !

My husband and I stayed at this cabin for four days. It was easy to find by following Jan's directions that she had emailed to us; a couple of days before our stay. The cabin was very spacious, well-kept and clean. The views over Lake Ontario was spectacular and we were lucky to view the beautiful sunset the first evening we were there. The kitchen was adequately stocked with kitchen utensils. The bathroom had towels and all amenities. Jan had left a lot of flyers/booklets and useful information about various things to do around the area which was a nice touch. We made use of the barbecue and also the fireplace; the latter contributing to cozy evenings indoors while it rained outside. Unfortunately, we weren't able to make use of the fire pit near the lake due to wind and rain. It was nice to getaway from the city. We had a very pleasant and relaxing holiday and would love to come back!
