2nd annual brothers fishing trip

  • 5 of 5

For the 2nd year in a row I rented this property! And what a blast my brothers and friends had. The location to the big lake for fishing is ideal and I can't say enough about Bill and joeanne! They not only run a top notch business they actually go out of there way to make sure EVERYTHING is ready and that you enjoy your stay with them. If your looking for a piece full setting and very clean houses to stay in this is the place to stay. I can't wait till next year to go back. Thank you very very much Bill & Joaane .

Your friends John/brothers and friends.

Week With Family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Relaxing Get Away for a week at the start of August, and it was everything we expected, and needed. My wife and I, along with our three children drove 42 miles for this little vacation, but it felt like we were in another world. Bill and Joanne greeted us promptly upon our arrival, and gave us a tour of the property. They informed us of all the local restaurants and entertainment, and had provided us with a bottle of wine for the adults and sparkling grape juice for the kids. Joanne gave golf cart rides to the kids, and showed them the lay out of the land.

The house itself had everything you need for a week at the cottage. The gas grill was clean and worked awesome for our cook outs. We had our own dock which worked out great for swimming, and the boat we rented from Bay Ridge Sports. Just a great relaxing week with the most beautiful sunsets you could imagine! Bill and Joanne are always there if you need anything, and they have a very special place in Relaxing Get Away. Thanks for the great week and we will be sure to be back!

Nothing But Smiles!

  • 5 of 5

My parents rented this cottage for a long weekend. My dad originally wanted a simple place so he could fish, sleep, relax, repeat for a few days. When my parents went to scope the place out, the owners Bill and Joanne.. to say my parents were impressed is an understatement. My parents raved about them, and decided that this place would be perfect for the 6 of us (my parents, myself, my boyfriend, my sister and her boyfriend). It wasn't too big and it wasn't too small. There is yard space and ADK chairs for relaxation near the water. My parents arrived a day before the rest of us. Bill and Joanne welcomed them with a note and a bottle of wine! And to top it off, there was toilet paper and other paper goods, as well as salt, pepper.. all the basics of what you needed to make the mini vacation as stress-free and relaxing as possible. We never had to worry about the little things. It was REFRESHING and WELCOMING. Not to mention, the place was extremely clean and cozy. There was the option of AC. Windows seemed to be new. Grill worked wonderfully.

And the hospitality didn't end when the trip did! I forgot my speaker box and my father forgot his flashlight in the cottage. My mom contacted the owners and they kept the items in their own home for us (down the street from the cottage) until we were able to come out to Sodus and get them.. can you believe it?! My entire family was very impressed. We hope to rent another cottage next year from the same owners, and I've already put a bug in my boyfriend's ear about renting the "Cottage on the Bay" (if you haven't already looked at that cottage, take a peak!)

Brothers Fishing trip

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cottage for my self and two brothers. I arrived at the cottage on Friday where i was met by Bill and Joanne the owners of the property. Two of the nicest people you will ever meet. They really take the time to make you feel comfortable. The cottage was every thing i was hoping for inside and out. Bed rooms, bath room, living room and kitchen all more then accommodating. Pleasantly surprised when the first 3 days were high 80-90 and the central air kicked on and cooled the entire house. Also a very quite neighbor hood on a dead end street. The boat dock was perfect for my 23 foot Pursuit and also my brother in laws 24 foot Edgewater bass boat. Boat launch and bait shop with in walking distance. Access to lake Ontario fishing was a clear shot accross sodus bay. I will Defiantly be returning for years to come. Thank you Bill and Joanne.

Great Week on the Bay

  • 4 of 5

My wife and two boys spent a week at this cottage recently. It is an ideal location, with beautiful view of the setting sun across the bay. We caught plenty of fish right from the dock, perch, sunfish, and largemouth bass. Bill and Joanne are excellent hosts and take great care of the property and their guests.

Cute cottage

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for the summer while I was working in the area. I stayed here with my two boys. The cottage is an adorable cottage. It is small but perfect for us. My boys loved the yard but the dock was a hit. My son must have caught over 100 sun fish over the summer. Finally at the end we could release the smallest ones. They also enjoyed checking out the apple orchard across the street and are thrilled that the apples are almost ready. But most importantly Joanne and Bill are great host. They have 3 different cottages and they are all different but all have great views. The sunset is just spectacular! I hope we can come to visit in the future! Bill and Joanne we will miss you guys!
