Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful, and my family had another fantastic vacation together! We could not imagine going anywhere else that could suit our every wish and need. We will be returning as often as we are able! Love, love it. Jim welcomes you with a wonderful basket, and is accessible for any questions or concerns. It is the best for our needs! Thank you!!!

Elegance and fun on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I spent a wonderful week at the Estate. Our family reunion could not have been better. It was one of the hottest weeks I can remember in Western, NY, thank fully the Estate remained cool. The grounds encourage out door activities such as bocce, playing catch or just enjoying views of the lake. We spent the majority of our time outdoors enjoying the natural beauty of the lake, however to our surprise, we also enjoyed bird watching. Bald Eagles we frequently seen in the air or perched in trees on the property.

The Estate was well equipped and supplied, no need to run to the store for supplies. The owners and care taker were very responsive with answers to our many questions and could not have been nicer.

I highly recommend this property and are planning our next trip to the Estate.
