About the Property

3 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, BRAND NEW KITCHEN & BATH, SUMMER 2016!!

This waterfront cottage has the perfect surroundings for a family getaway! Because it is the last cottage on a dead end, nature is all around you here! There are woods to walk through with a small waterfall and babbling brook that runs alongside the cottage. A long grassy front lawn can be used for all kinds of outdoor activities, and best of all the beach is level with no steps! There is a dock and rowboat you can use and also a boat hoist if you bring a motorboat or rent one. The walk out into the water is a very gradual one with no big drop offs, which is great for small children. The best thing about this beach is not only is it level, but there are no weeds growing here in the water so a pleasurable swim is in store. The beach consists of small flat rounded rocks. We also have a rowboat with life jackets you can use if you want to venture out in the lake a bit more!
A short walking distance away (approx. 200 yards) is a a large green space (about 6 acres) with a small playground and room for all kinds of outdoor lawn activities that require a large space.
The approximately 1000 square foot cottage has a wonderful open floor plan and boasts a very spacious living and dining area great for conversation or relaxation with nice views of the lake and stream. The living room leads out to a deck on the lake side which has a grill, lounge furniture and dining with all the sounds of nature.
The brand new kitchen is full stocked with plenty of cookware/utensils and is just off the dining room, which also has views of the lake through the living area.
There are three small cottage sized bedrooms, one with a queen, another with two twins another with a double, and there is a queen sofa bed in the living room. We also have a 'rollaway bed' (like a cot w/mattress- good for teens or kids) and you can place that where you like. The shade from the large old trees around the cottage and the lake breeze keep it nice and cool so there is really no need for air conditioning. We do have a couple of ceiling fans and portable oscillating fans you can place in the bedrooms or wherever you like.

You can visit the quaint historic village of Skaneateles with plenty of shops and restaurants or take a dinner cruise while there. If you like to golf, you are in luck because there are golf courses everywhere! The fishing is great for walleye, perch, bass, trout and northern pike. Smelt also run up the stream on the property in the spring. Don't forget, there is a large green space for games such as soccer, baseball, gootball, etc with swings also only 200 yards away. Nice private road that kids can ride bikes on. The lake is great for tubing, boating, swimming, and all kinds of water activities!

The nice level weed-free beach, and quiet setting are definitely the best attributes of this cottage. Great sunsets and views as well!
