Sodus Point and Carriage House Inn Featured in AAA Magazine

The Summer Edition of the AAA Member magazine features an article on the “Best Little Beach Towns on the Great Lakes”.  

We are pleased and proud that Sodus Point was listed as one of the top ten beach towns on the Great Lakes, and that the Carriage House Inn was recommended as the place to stay in Sodus Point. 

Of course, there are a lot of great places to dine and stay in our village known as “the Jewel of Lake Ontario”, and we hope that you will take the time to experience it yourself. And when you do, come stay at the Carriage House Inn, where it always “feels like home”

Carriage House Inn Applesauce Muffins


One of our most requested recipes is for this moist and delicious Applesauce Muffin, a breakfast treat that is also a tribute to this apple producing area of New York.  They are easy to make, and we love them just out of the oven with a little bit of butter.  Yum Yum!!

Carriage House Inn Applesauce Muffins

  • 2 cups biscuit mix
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  •  3/4 cup applesauce
  •  3 Tbsp milk
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • 2 Tbsp salad oil

Combine biscuit mix, sugar and cinnamon.  Add applesauce, milk egg, and oil; mix until moistened. Fill greased 2″ muffin pans ( or use parchment paper to cup the mix) until 2/3 full, and sprinkle tops with a cinnamon/sugar mix.  Bake at 400′ F. for 16 minutes, cool slightly, then serve.

While eating, close your eyes, and remember breakfast at the Carriage House Inn!

Thanks, and See You in the Spring

2018 has been  a great  at the Point.  After all the flooding in 2017, this year was a pleasant return to normal.

Claudine and I want to thank all of our Carriage House friends, new and old, who graced us with their presence this year.  After hundreds (thousands?) of chocolate chip cookies, hundreds of breakfasts, and countless stories and songs, we are drawing an end to our 2018 season, and closing for the winter.

Our last day this season was Oct 16.  We will reopen on May 1, 2019, and look forward to seeing all of you next summer.  If you would like to make a reservation, please visit our website and look under the “Accommodations” tab and click on “Rates and Reservations” where you will find an email link, or feel free to call Jerry at 262-490-8293.
