About Chris and Joan Johnson
Chris and Joan Johnson, owners. Both educators for 45 years in Brockport , NY. Joan's parents purchased the family cottage in 1964, where family gathered every summer throughout her childhood. Once it was time to pass the cottage on she and her husband took over responsibility and ownership. In the last few years they have personally enjoyed renovating during school vacations to enhance, yet keep the charm of this lovely vacation home.
Chris and Joan Johnson purchased this Cottage in 1993
Why Chris and Joan Johnson chose Branchport
We were dedicated to keeping this property in the family after our father and mother purchased it in 1964. Many wonderful memories have been made there and many more are to come. Numbers of the same families remain neighbors and great friends from the past decades. It is our oasis, the place we long to be at as much as feasibly possible. For times we cannot be there ourselves, we love to offer it to other families to start to make similar memories of their own.

We enjoyed our night stay. The cottage is very clean with everything you need to enjoy the weekend on the lake. Bathroom very clean and new. Loved the front sunroom. That became our bedroom and the bed in there was very comfortable and enjoyed waking up to the lake view each morning. The owners are very helpful and responsive and all the information you need is provided so that you can enjoy your stay. The location is fantastic with beautiful views surrounding you. Would highly recommend and would love to return!!
Crescent Beach gem.
Second year we stayed here and had a great time! The shallow water is great for swiming and fishing! Everything you need for a great, relaxing vacation. Thank you Chris and Joan for sharing your cottage!!
Very nice, Very Cean and Cozt
Very nice place to relax and unwind!
We enjoyed our mid October stay. We had plans to spend time outside but the weather turned cold, windy and partly sunny for our stay. The beautiful sunroom at the water's edge made our stay very enjoyable. We were able to enjoy the outside from the inside of the cottage. Dispite the weather we were able to use the row boat, walk at the State Park, visit local venues and sit on the glider at the end of the dock.
Clean, relaxing, wonderful amenities. Great, responsive owners.
Outstanding experience. So much care was taken with making us feel comfortable and our stay memorable that we felt like family.
Peace and relaxation
