About Sarah Haun
We are the owners of Cedar Lodge, and have spent the last 14 years living and working overseas in the countries of Morocco, Lithuania, and Costa Rica. Cedar Lodge is our 'home away from home' and a safe, cozy place to land upon coming back to the U.S. in the summertime. We have three children who adore being at the cottage. We find the simplicity of the area gives us the feeling of being "back in time" and allows us to reconnect as a family.
Sarah Haun purchased this House in 2006
Why Sarah Haun chose Henderson Harbor
We purchased Cedar Lodge as a place to come home to, as our family has been traveling and working overseas for the past fourteen years. I had grown up in Henderson during the summers with my parents and siblings, so this is a very special area with a lot of great memories. My parents' house is down the road a ways. Cedar Lodge is our "happy place" and a real home where we can slow down and reconnect as a family. We are so happy to share it with others so that other families can have the same experiences. It brings us a lot of joy to hear how special the cottage is to others.
What makes this House unique
The cottage offers us the beauty of summertime in the U.S. - long walks and bike rides, swimming, kayaking, catching fireflies, roasting marshmallows for S'mores, long games of Monopoly, family campfires, reading books in the sun, farmers markets, and leisurely days spending time together as a family....
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
We had a wonderful time at Cedar Lodge. It fit our whole family comfortably. The boat house was a huge hit for sleeping for our daughter and granddaughter. The water was clear, though it was very high this year which contributed to the challenge of getting down to the water, the only real problem of the week. That and a minor cable TV issue that Sarah came over right away and fixed.
We are already planning for next year's visit! When my wife starts talking about coming back to a cottage, you can bet it is a great place.
Quaint lakeshore retreat!
Four adults and two small dogs spent a week here leading up to Labor Day weekend 2017.
Only mishaps were no WiFi or TV for first day or so due to storm taking trees out just prior to our arrival. Notified owner and BAM! Things were dealt with immediately! Can't ask for a better response, after all, the weather is not the responsibility of the owner! Cottage is pleasingly rustic with prime Lake Ontario views! Beach house and its deck were a great retreat! Sliding doors on beach house allowed cross breezes that along with sound of the lake waves on the shore could lull you to dreamland in a heartbeat! House had all the amenities we needed for cooking, relaxing, recharging! This is some beautiful country up here with lots of history. Owner recommended restaurants were spot on! Tin Pan Galley was amazing!
Have no issues with recommending this place to friends and family in the future.
Thank you Sarah for sharing your house!
Rush/Maurice families August 2017
Very private and cozy, my family enjoyed this cottage on our week away from the hustle and bustle of "real life." Upon entering, we were immediately struck by the gorgeous view of the lake. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck and listening to the waves on the beach. Our dog loved swimming in the lake and we loved kayaking around the bay. We had campfires and caught fireflies at night - a perfect get away. We will be back.
Restful Relaxing Retreat
My family and I really enjoyed our vacation at this cozy cottage on the lake. The private lake front cottage is ideal for those seeking peace and solitude. Waking up to the serene view of the sun rise over the lake is how I dream of rising every day. The sunset is equally breath taking and tranquil. This vacation would have been nothing less than spectacular if the weather would have been better. My dreams of landing a big lake trout were definitely hampered by lots of above normal rain fall.
Thank you for your review. I am so glad that you had a nice time at the cottage. I do hope that you will return someday in the future - and crossing my fingers that if you do, you will have better weather....and that the trout will be biting!
Just a perfect relaxing getaway
Cedar lodge had everything you could want for a nice family getaway. There was plenty of sleeping space, private access to the lake with a dock and kayaks. Two fire pits for roasting marshmallows. A propane grill and a table for outdoor eating. And finally the deck is amazing for sipping coffee and sunrise, relaxing in the sun during the day and amazing sunsets in the evening. You won't be disappointed!
Just got back from our week of vacation. It was amazing! This house is everything the pictures make it out to be and the owner was wonderful to deal with! The view from the master bedroom was so serene. Loved sitting and drinking our coffee on the porch and the deck at the boat house. Kayaked all over and walked many miles on the roads around there. Highly recommend this property!
Enjoy swimming, boating, fishing, kayaking, jet-skiing, waterskiing (boats and equipment can be rented locally), or simply relax in a lounge chair and work on your tan! Sackets Harbor and Watertown are a short drive away (15 and 18 miles respectively) for more dining, shopping and entertainment choices. In Watertown you will find a shopping mall, good sized movie theatre,
Target, Walmart and many dining choices. Alexandria Bay, Clayton and The Thousand Islands are a short drive away (under an hour by car.) Antique shopping in Sackets Harbor or the Thousand Islands is a fun way to spend the day. Day trips can be taken to the Adirondack Mountains, Cooperstown (Baseball Hall of Fame), and Canada. Hiking and biking can be had in nearby Whele's Park. Black Pond Beach is also just a few miles away and offers a beautiful, sandy beach great for lazy days and family picnics. Golf to your heart's delight at the 9 hole Bedford Creek Golf Course located between Henderson and Sackets Harbors. The Elms Golf Course (18 holes) is also located just minutes from Cedar Lodge. Inquire about chartering a fishing boat/guide with a local marina or fish right off the shore! You will love the relaxing, peaceful and private atmosphere of this special cottage.
