Bernhards Bay cottage description

Our 50' of private lakefront property is shaded by large oak and maple trees overlooking the largest inland lake in New York State. Located down a dead end road, it offers plenty of parking and privacy. A huge deck overlooking most of the 21 mile long by 6 mile wide lake. A great place to sunbath during the day or celebrate cocktails in the evening.

Fishing off our 80 foot dock early morning or evening may catch you a pailful of walleye, pike, bass, perch or pickerel. Plenty of space available to park your boat with marinas and public boat launches within four miles of the cottage.

The sleeping arrangements are unique. The second floor is one large dormitory style room with three double beds. Portable dividers offer privacy when needed. Ideal set up for parents with children.

The most impressive attribute of this 'Adirondack Style' cottage is the full length, screened in porch that overlooks 160 square miles of water. A perfect place to keep an eye on the children while swimming, relax with a book or just enjoy the scenery.

Venturing away from the cottage can be exciting as well. The shoreline town park, less than a quarter mile away, offers a sandy beach, an open pavilion, basketball court, baseball fields and tennis courts. The Sylvan Beach Amusement Park, just 20 minutes away and the Verona State Park, just 25 minutes away offer additional sandy beaches. TURNING STONE CASINO is 40 minutes away and offers world class gaming, showroom, restaurants, nightclub, and three of the finest golf courses in the Northeast. In addition, the Boxing Hall of Fame in Canastota is just 35 minutes away and the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown is under 2 hours away.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1986

                  About the owner: My wife Kathy and I (Bob) are fortunate to live in upstate New York near our son, daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter. Kathy and I met each other in 1973 at the State University College at Buffalo. Kathy is an elementary teacher and I am self-employed, owning a design and marketing firm. We live in the smallest city in New York State... Sherrill, New York, with a population around 3,000.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bernhards Bay:
                  Camp Kelly is our second home... we love Oneida Lake and all it has to offer. Great fishing, boating, swimming, sunbathing and good restaurants.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  There are wonderful attributes to Camp Kelly. The cottage 'overlooks' the vast majority of the lake... it is an impressive view. Sitting on the large deck during the day or on the screened in porch in the evenings, allows you to enjoy the beauty of the water. Because it is located down a dead-end road, it is peaceful and quiet. The sounds of birds and waves are prevalent.
