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.

Fun and relaxation!

Beautiful place. Well equipped. Plenty of outdoor decking to enjoy the outdoors. Nice walk down to the lake to enjoy with stops along the way. We loved our weekend at Blackberry Retreat.

Absolutely amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

I have just got to say that this place was completely perfect. From the indoor accommodations to the beautiful scenery outside. We had a group of 5 couples and it was comfortable for us to all hang out and simply enjoy a relaxing weekend. We were lucky enough to stay during a full moon and the view of the moon reflected off of the lake was simply breathtaking. We look forward to staying again in the future!

Jardina & Larry Wedding July 28, 2017

  • 5 of 5

Great home to stay at for the week for my son's wedding on Lake Seneca. We had my 3 daughters and their families - 12 all together. Love the lake and of course the 169 steps down to the dock. It was a workout, but we loved the home. Spent 2 nights at the fire pit making smores w/ the 5 grandchildren. We all had fun in the hot tube, ping pong table and used the air hockey table. The home had everything we needed. Thanks Holly for the hospitality. Kevin Jardina
