Our family owns 2 cottages directly on Lake Ontario, in this little cove side by side. The first cottage was purchased over 30 years ago by my parents. During that time we were fortunate to have both the farmland behind us and the Girl Scout camp next door be purchased by NYS parkland. Beavers took over the farm pond, bald eagles are nest on our point, wild and beautiful walks in the park, where old growth forests and nature abound. Maxwell Creek and bay are part of the park making kayaking, canoeing and fishing great fun. Campfires and great swimming make it a tremendous spot.
As peaceful and wild as our location is it is only 3-4 mils from the lovely little port town and resort area of Sodus Point/Sodus Bay. with numerous marinas, a public sandy beach and pier to hike, restaurants, playgrounds, a lighthouse museum and more.
Fruit farming is the main industry. Awesome farm markets with fresh strawberries to pick in spring, raspberries and peaches in summer and APPLES in fall. We are the largest apple producing county in NYS. Peaceful Rural fun that is Sodus, Sodus Point, Sodus Bay and the entire area around our Secret Cove.
You may utilize the entire home and large grounds. Additionally hike the parkland hundreds of acres, directly out your back door.
