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, space 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 the use of 3 kayaks (2 singles and a tandem) during canal season (mid-May thru mid-Oct), 2 adults bikes, an outdoor fire pit, and a croquet set. A 50" 4k tv is in the living room with complimentary Disney+ and Netflix. There is excellent wifi throughout, a laundry room, and parking for 2 cars in the driveway. Guests will also find board games, books, a few musical instruments, and binoculars.

There is an optional single bed available for the 2nd bedroom. This is a Coleman cot, with a 6" memory foam mattress. A teen guest comment that it was more comfortable than his bed at home! It can be set up next to the double bed in that room, to accommodate a 5th person. We also supply a portable playpen.

Walmart is 1 mile up the road for groceries. The closest Wegmans is 5 miles in Fairport. The Macedon Farmers Market, 3.5 miles, is held on Weds (3:30-6:30pm) June-Oct, and the Fairport Farmers Market is held on Sats (7am-noon), May-Nov. A trail-head for the Erie Canal trail (with parking) is about 0.25 miles away (over the canal and to the right).

Blue Heron cottage is just off of Rt 31, about a half mile from the Perinton/Macedon border. It is located a short drive (0.1 mile) down a single-lane dirt/gravel drive that borders the Erie Canal. 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!
