Property Details

Updated: Mar 27, 2015
Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

Welcome to our totally renovated (2012), private beach house located on the sandy beaches of Lake Ontario. This cozy, comfortable, and tastefully furnished 650+ sq. ft. beach house was built in 1900 and completely renovated in 2012. Perfect getaway for a couple. All the charm of a rustic cottage, with all the modern fixtures and amenities of a new home.

Part of a sprawling five-acre estate, our beach house sits less than 50 feet from the water and features a gorgeous walk-out deck directly off living room. Wake up each morning to the sound of waves lapping at the shore, and luxuriating in the blue-green waters of Lake Ontario from sunrise to sunset. Walk the beach, or just sit with your toes in the sand.

The beach is good, clean sand which we keep well maintained. Even at high water levels, the beach is 50+ ft deep x 400 ft wide. Water temperatures are low 70's in the summer. The lake bottom is sandy and inviting with a nice sand bar too; you can wade out hundreds of feet before the depth goes over your head.

The beach house itself is like loft studio apartment. The walls are 100+yrs old, Floor-to-ceiling chestnut paneling. The exposed roof boards are also chestnut, resulting in 25-ft high ceilings. With the exposed roof beams and original fireplace, it's almost “chalet” feeling, 15-foot high french doors open out onto a large balcony that sits virtually on the water. Tile flooring throughout. New kitchen and bath update the structure and afford it all the conveniences of modern-day living. Leave the new doors and windows open to enjoy the lake breeze and sounds of the waves lapping outside, or take advantage of the central air if/when you want to take a break from the summer heat.

The location is private, but still close to everything. We're centrally located 15-minutes from anywhere in Rochester. Within a one-mile radius are: an 18-hole Public golf course, tennis courts, public beach, hiking trails, bike trails, river walks, trophy-fishing charters, and more. For day trips, Finger-lakes wine country is 45 minute drive; Niagara Falls is 60 minutes; the Niagara-on-the-Lake wine country is 90 minutes.

Other features include*:

* Loft-style bedroom

* Fireplace in the living room

* Flat-screen, wall-mounted TV

* Wi-Fi

* Fully equipped kitchen with new appliances, including dishwasher and garbage disposal

* New Bathroom - with pebble floor

* All towels & linens provided

* Central air-conditioning

* Washer/dryer

* Includes use of a large, private, sandy beach

Ideal for those looking for a secluded sanctuary that is still close to everything. Sit on the beach and listen to the waves, walk the park-like grounds and take in the wildlife, the flowering trees, and excellent bird watching, or run along the beaches of Durand Park or the Genesee River Gorge. A true “lifestyle” location, yet no more than 15 minutes from anywhere in Rochester.

Note that I accept credit cards and will participate in the Damage Waiver Protection program in lieu of security deposits.
