About Pamela and Douglas Matt
My husband and I originally are from upstate NY. We are now snow chicks and work in NY in the summer and Florida in the winter. We have our children, grandchildren and other family in NY We enjoy the beautiful weather in NY spring to fall. We found this property by driving between the homes of our two children, it is halfway. From the first time I saw this home I was drawn to it. It took a bit of convincing my husband as it was a big undertaking for both of us to renovate it. He is a carpenter and fortunately he agreed the home truly needed us to bring it back to life. If this doesnt sound too crazy, the house has a peaceful feeling. We look forward to the entrepreneurship of renting our property and meeting new people from all over the world and especially those close to home. The feeling of being at the lake has been something that is just so difficult to describe. We can just sit down by the lake watching the ducks and geese swim by, the fish jumping out of the water, the beautiful sunrise and sunsets and feel at peace. It truly is beauty at it's best.

The Salmon Fishing Trip
We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful Lakehouse on Oneida! We traveled up for the week to fish the salmon river. Not a great week of fishing, but the house made our stay so enjoyable.
Plenty of room for the seven of us, clean, well furnished, plenty of amenities, beautiful location with lake access (I should have brought the boat or a couple kayaks like I intended too), and all of the small things are thought of. So many rental properties leave something to be desired, not this one. I was thrilled with the house, and the home owners are awesome! Thank you again for sharing your home.
Thank you Ian for such a wonderful review! It truly means a lot to us that you enjoyed your stay! Pam and Doug
Beautiful Lake getaway!
We really enjoyed our Girls Weekend at this beautiful lake house. We've (7 of us) been getting to together once a year for about 28 years and this was one of our best times. The house is beautiful inside and out. Pam has handmade quilts on every bed. They add that beautiful homemade touch. Everything you could need is provided. We especially enjoyed the firepit and the fact that we didn't need to bring our own wood. The hike up to the house from the water is a little much but its worth it. Beautiful sunrise and sunset all from the same waterfront. Thanks Pam and Doug for this beautiful getaway! Maria
Everything about our stay was perfect. The house is well situated, right on the water with a beautiful dock. Huge yard. Kitchen is very well appointed with everything you need to cook. The owners were fantastic and we really appreciated some of the little extras that were there, such as the bowl of fruit. We will absolutely stay here again we come back into the area.
Thank you so much for the great review! We are happy you enjoyed your stay.
Great place. Had lots of fun in the water and great fishing out near islands. Owners are very friendly and there house could accommodate 8-10 people without being on top of each other. I would recommend this property for anyone who wants a great time.
My family and I just spent a week at Doug and Pam’s place and I can’t say enough great things about both them and their property! First of all the house was in great shape and Pam’s sense of cleanliness and caring for the placed showed throughout. Doug and Pam live on the property in a small home at the bottom of the hill near the lake. Some people May feel that’s weird but I thought it was great! They were VERY quick to respond to any issues we had, like a brown circuit in the kitchen,’ my fault. I communicated with Pam via email and text, and throughout the whole process she was great about getting back to me very promptly about any questions I had. The house has a great location to a gas station. For those fisherman or boaters out there, the gas station has Non-ethanol gas which is all I use in my boat. There is also a grocery store and hardware store less than a mile away. Walmart 7 miles away straight down NY-49 for any bigger things you need or forgot. The house has AC on the second floor which is great for sleeping at night. During the day if you leave the bedroom doors open the cold air falls to the first floor and the ceiling fans were great about moving the cool air around. We had high 80’s and were always comfortable. Plenty of space for the family to move around inside, and great parking space outside. But saying all these great things I am shooting myself in the foot for future renting availability but Pam and Doug have a great place, and are great people to deal with during the entire rental and vacation process. We will definitely be back for future vacations when heading to Oneida Lake .
Thank you so much for the kind words. We truly enjoyed meeting you and your family and the fact that you enjoyed our home is exactly what we hope for!! We would love for you to come back in the future. Ps You and Amy have a great group of children :)
