Property description

This home with waterfront is perfect for family reunions, extended families, or just large groups of friends! The east side location provides plenty of sunshine and awesome sunsets. There is a large two acre grassy lawn for kids to play and no neighbors on either side near the house. Since the yard is very spacious, you do have to walk approximately 100 yards (length of a football field) down the gently sloping property to the beach. The property gets more narrow towards the beach area where cottages get closer together. A stone driveway to drive to the water for people who can't walk this distance is located on the side of the property and cuts across the lawn near the waterfront. It is also used as a driveway/lane for cottages directly on the water. Kids can run and play, fly a kite, adults can have a volleyball game, play hoops, roast marsh-mellows, have a picnic, and take part in all kinds of water activities.

Inside, there is plenty of space to hang out together in the living room or family room. The dining room table seats 10 and table in the adjacent kitchen seats 6. Just outside the dining room is the deck which can seat 5 more or so. Many folks enjoy the piano room where they have singalongs with the family. There are also lots of nooks and crannies in the home where you could enjoy some quiet time away from the group. Of course, you could also do a little sunning at the beach while listening to the lapping waves, or relax in the lawn under one of the large shade trees.

The beach is all small flat rocks(shale) and has a deck and 45 foot dock. There are some stairs (approx. 20) from the lawn to the beach area. The water is very clean and there are no weeds in this area. It's crystal clear and you can easily see the bottom. It's a nice gradual walk out into the water and is about three feet deep at the end of the dock, which is great for kids- no drop offs. There is a rowboat with life-jackets for your use. For extremely large groups, we also own another home a short walk away with three bedrooms and sleeps 10 that you can inquire about. Auburn is only a short drive (a few miles)away, so it is very convenient for shopping, restaurants, parks,etc. There are many things to do just a short drive away.

Fishing is excellent on this lake. Walleye, bass, trout, pike, perch, and other panfish are abundant. Besides the many water activities, visit the Bass Pro Shop located only a few miles away in Auburn. Take a wine tour, hike the trails and waterfalls at nearby Filmore Glen State Park, Taughannick Falls or Buttermilk Falls, visit the Harriet Tubman Home, Seward House, or the Women's Rights Museum, or see a show at the Broadway caliber Merry-Go-Round Playhouse,only a few miles down the road. There is also be a new music theater festival in Auburn as well. There are plenty of golf courses within a few minutes drive. Disc golf is right around the corner, along with Emerson Park and several playgrounds. And don't forget to just kick back and relax at our beach!
