About The Owner

We are a family of five. Both full time working professionals. Our 3 children are grown. Our youngest will be beginning his senior year at LeMoyne College. We are feeling the recent 'Empty Nest' syndrome. It is going to take a little getting used to. We are very proud of their accomplishments so far!!

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Baldwinsville

We owned a rental property on a lake previously, which we renovated, and sold. We wanted to find a waterfront home that we could eventually retire to, and fell in love with this place. It's spacious for our family, and for visitors from out of town.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy the quiet, relaxing feeling we get from the place. When we drive down the lane to the house, we feel like we are in the middle of nowhere, even though it is a short drive from our home. Almost immediately upon arriving at the house, we feel all of our worries and stress fall away from us. We love hanging out in the hammock with the soft sound of the river surrounding us, and at night enjoying a fire in the fire-pit by the water. Our children also like to fish and swim or explore the woods nearby.

Amazing get away, would come back in a heart beat!

  • 5 of 5

Came to this house for some fun salmon fishing a few miles away. Not only did we fish for salmon on Salmon River but we fished out back where the house is and got all sorts of fun fishing there. All in all the house was so fun that we didn’t really leave, only left to fish. Really comfortable and cozy would totally come back!

Quiet, spacious retreat

  • 4 of 5

We were there for the weekend to celebrate our son's graduation from Syracuse University. Beautiful location. House is very spacious, plenty of room for gathering in living room. Bedrooms are also very spacious. The weather was rather rainy, so didn't spend much time outside - but the fire pit next to the river looked great and there was a nice patio and good sized yard. Plenty of parking.

Roomy and Beautiful View

  • 4 of 5

The property was very roomy, lots of open space which was great for our family gathering. The bedrooms are all a good size. The back patio area is very nice with a grill and a fire pit, which we really enjoyed. The view of the river was lovely. The water was pretty high when we were there so we didn't go swimming, but we brought our canoe and it was easy to get it in and out of the water and there are a couple beaches nearby. The proximity to Syracuse is great since there is a lot to do there on a rainy day. The owners were very responsive to questions and returned the damage deposit very, very quickly, which was nice.

The only downside was that the mattresses are extremely firm on most of the beds, so if you really don't like a hard bed I would recommend bringing something to cushion the mattress. Also, one room doesn't have air conditioning, but it does have a fan.

August Bville reunion

  • 5 of 5

My family met here in mid-August this year for a reunion after childhood years spent in Baldwinsville at my father's childhood home, which is now sold. He lived right on the Seneca River, and so having a house likewise on the river was a wonderful return to those summer days. The house was spacious and comfortable, and private; house well-stocked with linens, kitchen supplies etc. Appreciated the Adirondack chairs out back, as well as the patio grill and firepit. We had a wonderful week!
