                                We spent Christmas week in this wonderful house and the owner, Gus had the house all warm for us when we arrived and even had wood ready for the wonderful fireplace. He kept us posted on weather conditions before we came up since we came all the way from Florida. We had a beautiful white Christmas! Gus kept the driveway plowed for us and made sure we had everything we needed for an amazing stay. I cant wait to do this again! The house is an amazing jewel with its rich history and we LOVE it! Seeing all the deer every morning playing was very entertaining and the kids loved it. We saw rabbit tracks but didn't get to see it.. too quick! Gus,Thank you for being part of the wonderful memories we have of Christmas 2013! Maybe we will see you again next year?

                                The Lovely Four Season Family Cottage was an exceptional place with rustic charm and wonderful spaces for our big group by day to gather in large and small numbers. We totally enjoyed the facilities and all the amenities from the kitchen equipped with dishes for everyone and all your cooking needs, a wonderful wood burning fireplace all set and ready to go by Gus, a fun fire pit outside, a wrap around porch with lots of seating clusters, a large dining room table and smaller tables in the kitchen and porch for group eating and card playing, and sleeping accommodations that worked well for us! Enjoyed be able to walk out on the pier in Fair Haven State Park and seeing and hearing the waves crashing on the beach. Good weather is a bonus but this house overcomes the challenges of cold or wet conditions that bring everyone inside as there was space for all to have fun inside AND WE DID! We had a special memory making family reunion that will be remembered forever! The Otis Wiley House is clean and well maintained and full of family history that welcomes all who come to share in its numerous opportunities to connect with others in special ways!

                                This was a great place. Great location, and the deer were there every morning. Loved the porch were we spent most of our time. The house was very clean and provided us with everything we needed. Thanks to Gus the owner who was very helpful.

                                I rented this house for my family for the weekend while my daughter graduated from SUNY Oswego. It could not have been more ideal. We loved getting away from the crowds and being able to walk to the beach. We loved staying all together, cooking together and having space to spread out or gather in an easy flow. So much nicer than being isolated in hotel rooms, and cheaper too! Gus is a great guy, and takes excellent and loving care of the house.

I would recommend this to families with children, as it is close to the state park-you can walk to the beach.

                                We just spent time in this cottage and while it was our first time, it definitely won't be our last! We've already booked a week for next year! The owner is a wonderful gentleman who was extremely accommodating. We knew from our first interaction with him this was going to be a wonderful place - and it exceeded our expectations! This home is meticulously maintained and provided everything you could imagine. All we had to bring was our food. The images don't begin to fully reflect how spacious this home is - with its enormous wrap around porch, living room, kitchen, etc. The location is perfect. We had several young children with us and the walk to the playground and beach took only minutes down a quiet, dead-end street. We had the best of both worlds - beach and water when we wanted it and a large, open grassy yard for the evening. The porch is beyond belief with several gathering areas to eat, chat or just hang out. The living room and its fireplace fill the home with charm. The kitchen is large and provides all the amenities you need. This cottage has plenty of sleeping space, two large bathrooms and laundry! This home is very clean, safe, extremely spacious and a perfect spot for a quiet getaway or a large family gathering. We could go on and on....We can't say enough about it! Absolutely perfect!

                                My husband and I got married at Fair Haven State Park, which is just a stroll away from this beautiful cottage. We needed a place to stay for just the weekend, something where we could have all our family stay together and not one here and one there all over town. It was wonderful. We truly felt at home, all of us, and everyone just ooohed and awed over the wrap around porch! I always dreamed of coming down the stairs at home in my wedding gown, and I truly felt that I did. We have an soft spot in our hearts for this cottage and Gus the owner, what a lovely gentleman! He was very nice and attentive. That home is a treasure.

                                We stayed here for a week in August 2010. There were 9 of us from Northern NY and Virginia. The location was great- walking distance to the state park beach. We spent much of the week fishing and at the beach and playground with the kids. The amount of space in this house is deceiving and the decor is so charming, you feel like you're home, but better! BY FAR, the best feature of the house is the wrap-around porch! It is a massive space that encircles 3 sides of the house- we counted 50 windows! In fact, my husband, daughter, and I chose to sleep there- very comfy! There were several seating areas, so no one ever felt cramped for space. The bedrooms were also comfortable with plenty of storage. It was helpful to have a bathroom on each floor and the washer and dryer got much use. The kitchen had all of the modern conveniences, and the dining room easily sits 12 people. The garage had a second fridge and full-size freezer. This property was an excellent value for the price! All we had to bring was our food and clothing. The house was clean and the grounds were spacious and well maintained. There is a fire ring in the back yard which was perfect for evening campfires, and there was a grill on the patio- charcoal included! It was fu to sit on the porchin the evenings and watch the deer in the yard. The owner is wonderful! He was so helpful everytime I had a question and was available anytime we needed him. He met with us the year before we rented to show us the property. The pictures are good, but can't do the home justice. If possible, see it for yourself; you won't be disappointed. I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone and hope to stay there again someday!

                                We just got back from a fantastic holiday with family. My family rented the cottage while coming to Central New York to attend my graduation from Syracuse University. The cottage was so beautiful did not mind the drive into the city at all. It's just a short walk away from one of New Yorks best State Parks (Fair Haven). Furthermore, the house has everything you will ever need and more. There is enough space for everyone to relax and not feel confined. Best of all we had a great time cooking in the big kitchen. Later we sang and roasted marshmallows around the campfire. For those who live a hectic life...this cottage is the perfect place to getting to know each other again and remind you what life is really all about! Thanks Gus for making my graduation so special.--Liz (Massachusetts)
