Welcome to Blue Heron Cottage, a restorative nature-lover's paradise on the Erie Canal. This 950 sq ft ranch features 2 bedrooms (1 queen, 1 double, 1 cot), a full bath, a well appointed cook's kitchen, a covered front porch, expansive living room windows for bird-watching, a desk for writing, a deck overlooking the canal, and a dock for launching boats during canal season. The entire living area has radiant floor heat under terracotta tiles. The cottage was built in 2006 and recently renovated.

The space
The cottage includes a 50" 4k tv in the living room with complimentary Disney+ and Netflix. There is excellent wifi throughout, a laundry room, and parking for 3 cars in the driveway. Guests will also find books, board games, a few musical instruments, and binoculars for bird watching.

There is an optional single bed available for the 2nd bedroom. This is a Coleman cot, with a 6" memory foam mattress. It is very comfortable and can be set up next to the double bed in that room, to accommodate a 5th person. We also supply a portable playpen.

Guests have access to the entire cottage except for the garage & attic. Guests also have access to three kayaks for use on the Erie Canal (2 singles and a double), two bikes for the Erie Canal Heritage Trail, Croquet/Corn-Hole/Bocce-Ball sets for the yard, and an outdoor fire pit. We provide paddles & life jackets for the kayaks, helmets & a pump for the bikes, a flat lawn area to play games, and seating/wood/kindling/matches for the fire pit.

While there are other homes on the road, we have 200 feet of frontage and a treed lot, making the space very private.

Hello, I am a lifelong Rochester resident who fell in love with the Erie Canal after motoring a sailboat through its majestic locks to the Hudson River, with my father and brother, in my early 20s. Our family's canal history goes way back, as my father's grandfather was a lock tender at the Waterloo lock.

My wife Elizabeth and I became familiar with Airbnb over the past 10 years, as we enjoyed Airbnb rentals while traveling with our 3 boys to their various athletic events, on family trips, while visiting colleges, and now, while visiting our boys in college!

We hope you enjoy your stay!
