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 Auburn

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.

Perfect Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house for a low-key bachelorette party with seven girls. The house and location were perfect! We loved having access to the kayaks and paddle boards, and the bonfire area was awesome. The house itself was great for a big group. There was plenty of space for everyone to relax. Would definitely rent this place again!

Exactly what we were looking for. The photos /description represent the property perfectly

  • 5 of 5

Very clean. Well stocked. Local information provided. Had absolutely everything we could possibly need to make our girls get away truly relaxing. The lakefront and water toys were an added bonus. Sharon, our hostess, was kind, welcoming and full of information with local sightseeing adventures we could do( and we did) .

Loved our vacation. Thanks Sharon!

We had a very pleasant stay at the property. It was a great place for a family vacation.

  • 4 of 5

The place we stayed was called Claire Vue on Owasko Lake. I'm not sure why it is referred to here as Ashland. We found the cottage to be very comfortable and the proximity to hiking trials at Fillmore Glen State Park and shopping at Auburn NY to be quite convenient. We enjoyed having access to waterfront activities very near the cottage.
