Rochester, Finger Lakes, New York
Welcome to our newly purchased and remodeled (May 2017) lake house set high on a bluff on the shores of Lake Ontario in Rochester, NY.

You have found the perfect lake house for get away any time of the year. This 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home has 2900 square feet of living space with 75 feet of water front and glorious panoramic views of Lake Ontario.

There are 4 spacious stone patios for entertaining, one with an outdoor kitchen area that boasts a pizza oven and a built in gas grill in the granite counter top. The lower patio has a fire pit at the water’s edge perfect for roasting marshmallows and making s’mores. Plan to be amazed by incredible sunrises and sunsets, a variety of birds and wildlife (including a family of mink that live in the rocks below the patio), shooting stars and the sound of waves rolling into shore.

From the first phone call I knew Laura would be a great person to work with. She is extremely kind and accommodating. She knew we needed more table space and provided two extra tables and additional chairs. She also provided two cots for my grandchildren. We spent the Holidays here with our large family. We had plenty of space for...

The kitchen is so awesome we cooked most of the Thanksgiving dinner here- even...

About the neighbourhood
This is a quiet residential area with privacy on half acre lots between neighbors. The home is right on Lake Ontario which has stunning views year round. Some mornings the lake can look as smooth as a pond and you see kayaks and paddle boards offshore. The same day, the winds may stir the waves to ocean size. The skyline is beautiful with blues, grays, pinks, purples and orange with the sunrise and sunset. Lightning storms are spectacular and can be seen in the distance while it remains sunny on shore.
The winter offers views of ice sculptures formed by the shoreline waves freezing and a variety of winter ducks, mink and geese.

We have access to a private beach area on Beattie Beach just a short walk down the road.
