Lots of fun
Great getaway on the lake with all the essential amenities to enjoy a comfortable week away.
Quaint and rustic cabin that is perfectly situated on the lake. The home has everything you need to live comfortably and has all the essentials including: WiFi, W/D and a powerful AC. The lake is beautiful and we enjoyed the serene setting pretty much all to ourselves. We really appreciated having the kayaks, life jackets and my son loved floating on the tube. The home is extremely clean and well stocked. If I had to critique one thing was the bathroom door did not close all the way and the entrance door was a bit ornery at times. We appreciated our stay and would return in the future.
Wonderful lakeside experience
Our family spent 4 nights here in late July and we had a great time. Fishing was very good (60+ smallmouth bass from dock), firepit and chairs next to lake were enjoyed each evening and weather was super.
Be aware that the stairs are not joke (60+) and limit the number of trips you'll want to make between home and lake - the first night was pretty warm in the home since there was no air movement but the rest of the nights were naturally cool and comfortable.
All in all - one of our favorite lake trips to date! Fully recommend as long as you can handle the stairs!
Breathtaking view and you won't want for a thing!
Great location, impeccable property
Halfway down Owasco Lake, this two-bedroom cottage is really fantastic. We found it impeccably clean when we arrived, and the view across the lake is stunning. Keep in mind this is on the west side of the lake, so while you won't see sunsets from here, the sunrises are spectacular, especially from the living room with floor-to-ceiling windows. Sixty steps down from the cottage is the lakeshore, where there's a fire pit, four chairs, and a dock that's not very long but still goes out far enough to catch some great bass and perch. There were two single-person kayaks that got a lot of use. Our boys (6 and 8) loved the beach. As with all the Finger Lakes, bring wading shoes, as the beach and lake bottom is rocky.
A few things to keep in mind: There is no dishwasher, so be prepared to wash dishes frequently. There is a small charcoal grill, but no gas grill. The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed, and the guest room has a trundle bed that sleeps two. The kitchen had a small single-dispensing Keurig, which made good coffee, but obviously isn't good for making a whole pot. The living room couch is also a great place to sleep, but keep in mind the sunrise will probably wake you up! There's a portable air conditioner, but we didn't need it -- the breezes off the lake kept us cool.
Wegmans in Auburn is a 15-20 minute drive north, and Moravia is about 10-12 minutes south. Some great u-pick farms around, including Grisamore. Also, great hikes abound in the area. Check out Great Gully in Aurora toward Cayuga Lake.
This is a great spot. We couldn't recommend it more highly.
Terrific place and house
