About Laura Bentz

The Owners of the home are Paul & Laura Bentz. We love to travel and experience new places, cultures and cuisine. Laura loves cooking, gardening, and water sports like kayaking. Paul enjoys American football, music and traveling to the far ends of the earth.

Laura Bentz purchased this House in 2013

Why Laura Bentz chose Cayuga

Paul and Laura fell in love with this property when they first saw it on a Sunday evening during the Spring of 2013. They decided to rename the property Osprey Manor because a beautiful Osprey flew over as they decided to acquire the property. The elegance and history of the property revealed itself over the following months as the couple began to bring the property to its current beauty. We loved that the home is on the northeastern side of Cayuga Lake which gives guests access to the Cayuga and Seneca Lake Wine Trails as well as the nearby towns of Aurora for dining and Auburn for martinis and theatre as well as beautiful Skaneateles and lively Geneva which are about 30 minutes away. And the sunsets! Beautiful all year long. The Home has been painstakingly remodeled and updated and elegant but comfortable furnishings added. The home really is something to see whether you love old homes, history, or just want to relax or entertain in the Finger Lakes. After the Revolutionary war the land and subsequently the home that was built was given to the original owner as a land grant. Soldiers of the war were often given large amounts of land in lieu of compensation for their time spent in the military.

We walked to the lake from the house, which was just one block up. The kitchen was awesome, great for cooking for a big group. We were even offered complimentary late check out. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Laura and Paul!!!

We very much enjoyed the hot tub and the closeness of the house to the water. We utilized the front porch every night and loved being able to bbq. The amount of sleeping space made it very comfortable, as well as the amount of bathrooms. I'm already trying to plan my next trip back!

There was a variety of seating areas to relax and reconnect! The kitchen was well stocked and the grounds were very private. There is plenty of off street parking, linens and seating for all off us at the dining room table. We will be returning next June.
