About Holly Geary

Relaxing on the deck in the middle of a winter snowfall

Holly Geary purchased this house in 2004

Why Holly Geary chose Naples

I have been enjoying living on the finger lakes for the past 25 years. I bought my first vacation home on Cayuga Lake in 1988. Each of the lakes is unique and will appeal to a wide variety of renters. I love boating (motor and sail) and swimming. My children grew up on these lakes and we continue to enjoy the great family reunions we have every year.

What makes this house unique

Our property is quite private and perfect to enjoy a family getaway but is also large enough to accommodate reunions or small weddings. The waterfront is beautiful and is perfect for boating, swimming, or just relaxing. The firepit is a nice place to enjoy the evenings and there are no mosquitoes! The hot tub is perfect for any time with a view down to the lake.

Terrific property with lake views and lake access

  • 5 of 5

This was a fabulous house - clean, spacious, and comfortable- a perfect site for our family reunion. The owners were really responsive. The kitchen was really well-equipped, and eating on the deck, with the lovely views of the lake, was very special. We loved the dock and access to the lake. We hope to come and stay here again!

Beautiful home and property.

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 adult couples on our first vacation without our kids. The house was very spacious and beautiful. The boat house, dock and kayaks provided hours of fun. Boat house has life jackets and chairs all for use. The 167 steps kept us in shape but the lake makes it all worth it.

The beds were very comfortable and the bedrooms welcomed the lake breeze.

There is a hot tub which is an extra bonus...the guys enjoyed this after golfing.

The kitchen is well stocked with all your cooking needs.

We lived on the deck off the family room.

Most importantly the house was spotless and Holly was exceptional to work with.

Worth every cent!This home is perfectly designed and supplied to make our visit perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I just cant say enough about how wonderful this house is, and the view of of the lake is lovely! The deck is very large with 2 large tables and many chairs to accommodate many people for dining outdoors. There was even a Weber grill for grilling, too.Everyone enjoyed using the kayaks too. Beautifully and comfortably furnished too. There were many helpful pantry items, that helped us to cook a few dinners. The house is very clean. Thanks very much to our host!
