Bedrooms 2
Half Baths1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Guest Cottage is about 1500 square feet, plus large porches and a deck. There is a nice sized yard for kids, pets and adults to play below the cottage. The cottage comes with lake access via several sets of stairs, and a dock where a boat can be stored during your stay. Its location set above the lake allows for great views that the Finger Lakes are known for. Owasco Lake is small enough to avoid large waves and also warm up quickly, so it’s perfect for swimming and boating.

The deck has a comfortable cushioned furniture set and a gas grill, perfect for the ultimate summer BBQ or evening of stargazing. One bedroom has a double bed and a full bath in the adjacent hallway. The second has two twin beds (which can pushed together to make a king) and an attached half bath. There is also an open loft above the other two bedrooms which houses a queen sized futon and a blow up mattress. It’s the perfect game room for kids or space for a couple extra kids! The loft overlooks the large and comfortable open kitchen/dining room/living room with doors out onto the porch. It’s perfect for family gatherings, allowing everyone to spend time together. Enjoy cooking a meal together, watch a DVD, or just sit back and enjoy each others company with the ultimate lake view.

The cottage comes fully stocked with grill supplies, paper products, dishes, a coffee pot, cookware, silverware, towels, linens, soap, washer/dryer, etc. There are not any boats included with the rental, but there are boat rentals minutes away and there are life jackets available for your use. Also minutes away are restaurants, ice cream stands, and convenient access to all the wineries and sight seeing that the Finger Lakes are known for. In addition to information on area attractions that are provided at the cottage, optional concierge services are also available to help ease your vacation planning. Bring your personally belongings and some family or friends and you’ll have everything you need for a relaxing Finger Lakes getaway!

We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage had everything for a comfortable & home-like stay. Our hosts were very kind & knowledgeable about the area. The location is perfect: the lake not too crowded and the proximity of Auburn, Skaneateles and Ithaca gives you something to explore and do even if the weather doesn't cooperate. We are definitely considering coming back!

beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed here and it was absolutely wonderful! The house was just as advertised and exceptionally clean. Very spacious and comfortable with a very nice deck and outdoor area and easy access to the dock and lake. Peter and Dawn were wonderful hosts who were extremely helpful with suggestions for what to do and provided us with lots of information and history about the surrounding area. Out of all the vacation homes we've rented over the years, this was by far one of the best in terms of the house itself and the hosts. We could not recommend it more!

Fabulous Cottage. Great Hosts.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for my three friends and I. It's exactly as advertised. I appreciate how clean and well stocked it was. Peter was such a friendly and accommodating host. He helped make our first visit to the Finger Lakes amazing! I would definitely stay here again.

More than a guest cottage

  • 5 of 5

Above & beyond what we expected. Clean!!! Comfortable, spacious, charming and well stocked. We could not have asked for anything else. Owners helpful with questions and nearby activities. Discriptions and photos were acurate. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing home away from home. Beautiful place - clean - clean - clean

Caution: Bring water shoes (sharp rocks in water) and beware of steps - very slippery when wet. Alot of steps for elderly or toddlers. We had a wonderful stay!!
