I am Sharon Forshee, I live on the lake next door to my vacation home. I love to share the beauty and tranquility of the region and I can help with your questions.

SHARON FORSHEE purchased this house in 2006

Why SHARON FORSHEE chose Owasco Lake

I built this home because I had a lovely wooded property behind me that is perfect for this log home. The lake is beautiful for 7 months a year and then private road is not reliable. The fishing and swimming are great and the home is wonderful for groups having fun together.

Very well maintained property, lots of activities!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great experience here (no thanks to the weather!). We were in need of a getaway, and found it here. Sharon is very hospitable, just like the house we stayed in. TONS of provided activities, which helped us get through 4 days of straight rain and colder fall weather as it arrived. On the 2 nice days we had while there, we made a fire, walked to the water on the large water front area, and hiked a bit in the woods. We also hung out on the uncovered portion of the wrap around porch as the sun set over the lake. When it was not as nice out, we for the most part hung out by the beautiful fireplace and even braved it on the covered portion of the porch for some games outside. The greedy side of me wants to keep this place a secret so I won't have issues booking next time, but I can't keep others from enjoying. Highly recommended for those who enjoy nature and family time!

Great to hang out at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Great to hang out at the beach and use all of the watercraft (kayaks, paddle boards, flotations, rowboat, sailboat). The children had a great time whether on the beach and in the water, or at the house with the games and game room. A relaxing vacation.

Amazing setting which pleased the whole crowd

  • 5 of 5

Claire Vue offers something for all age groups and interests. Sharon graciously allowed me to organize a small celebration on the property during the off season. She was extremely accommodating and provided direction through every step of the planning process. Sharon, thank you for helping us create a fond memory that we will cherish the rest of our lives!

Beautiful house that was very clean and accommodating for large groups.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great relaxing week at the lake. Sharon has everything you need in the house and at the lake. Our girls loved using the kayaks, pattleboards and row boat. The fishing was good even off the dock. The house is very dog friendly even with a gate on the giant porch.
