Property description

Cozy 3 bedroom canal front home in wonderful Sylvan Beach, NY! This nice rental home is available weekly, monthly or even just for a weekend beginning April 30, 2010. Cute bungalow floor plan contains a queen sized bed on lower level, as well as 2 separate full sized beds on the upper level; easily accommodates 6 people with 1.5 baths and a washer and dryer on the main level. The home is fully furnished, and includes satellite TV, high speed wireless Internet access, DVDs, board games, a dart board and a Foosball table for indoor entertainment. The upper level also has a small TV and DVD player. This home also features a screened canal-front porch, a small patio area with a picnic table and gas barbecue grill, and a fire pit for your evening enjoyment.

A dock on the canal located right in your back yard is also available for your use; perfect for your jet skis or boat.

The canal directly connects to the east shore of Oneida Lake, a 28 mile long, all-sports lake. Spend the day fishing, tubing, water skiing, jet skiing, or just sight seeing from the lake! The unique location of this home also makes it great for fishing right in your own back yard from the dock or from the bank of the canal; perfect for kids and adults alike. For those vacationers who are into more serious boating and / or fishing, you can travel the canal system to Lake Ontario, a well as to the Hudson River / NYC (approximately 225 miles). Several fishing charters are available on the lake as well; Oneida Lake boasts some of the best walleye fishing in the entire northeast! We also have 2 nice kayaks available for use while staying at the home.

Numerous bars, restaurants, souvenir shops, a deli mart and sandy Sylvan Beach are only a few blocks away... and very easy to walk to and from.

The beach front offers shallow, sandy-bottom swimming or sun bathing; bring a lawn chair or a blanket to the beach in the evening hours and treat yourself to some of the most beautiful sunsets on the planet across the nice lake front. A small lake front amusement park, miniature golf courses and an arcade are also only 6 blocks from your vacation home!

For those interested in other activities outside the village limits, the Turning Stone Casino and Resort is a short 15 minute drive away, and provides AAA 4-diamond rated dining, as well as a PGA golf course and world class gaming facilities. The region is also rich in other outdoor / sightseeing activities, include Vernon Downs harness racing, numerous state parks (Chittenango Falls, Verona Beach and Green Lakes parks are all within a 30 minute drive), the Boxing Hall of Fame museum in Canastota and a small Erie Canal museum in Chittenango. The national Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown is only a 2 hour drive from Sylvan Beach.

Come stay at the beach house this year and make some great vacation memories of your own to last a lifetime!

Car: Not Necessary

Sylvan Beach is a cute, quaint, 'best of the old and new' waterfont village in upstate New York. As a waterfront home, our beach house enables you to bring and dock your own boat in a very protected area completely away from the sometimes rough lake. Travelers can also use our free kayaks, or rent a power pontoon boat from a nearby camp ground, to explore the adjacent Erie canal and beautiful Oneida Lake. It's entirely possible to travel the canal system all the way to the Hudson River, and onto NYC, a trip of over 200 miles on the water.

The village is perfect for fun seekers of all ages. Enjoy a beach front amusement park; miniature golf, ice cream parlors, the sandy beach with shallow swimming waters (great for kids!), numerous bars and restaurants within walking distance. Summer concerts, 'Bikes at the Beach', and numerous car shows, craft fairs, etc are also throughout the summer. World class golf, gaming and dining at the Turning Stone Resort are only 20 minutes away.

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, miniature golf


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: I am an automotive engineer who moved to the Syracuse area from metro Detroit in 1996. My 2 daughters were raised here, and graduated from Canastota High School; both are currently in college. I recently moved back to the Detroit area due to changes in our business resulting from the auto industry crisis, and married a beautiful lady who has 2 younger children. My wife and I enjoy coming back to Sylvan Beach whenever possible; we had considered moving here if business conditions were better, and hope to spend our retirement here in the summer season down the road.

Why Sylvan Beach, NY, USA:
I lived in this home for over 6 years, and really came to love the Sylvan Beach community. In many ways, it feels like you've walked back in time 50 or more years, yet it also offers every modern day convenience a person could ever want. My wife and I have enjoyed refurbishing the home over the past year, with the hope that others who already know of the fun this town has to offer, or anyone looking for a new, unique, relaxing vacation destination might enjoy it as well. The home offers a convenient location where you can enjoy all of the amenities in the village and regional area, and yet you can escape to the quiet home setting for a more private experience as well.
