About the Property

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms , 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

What a nice, peaceful place for a family getaway. Owasco Lake is one of the more undiscovered finger lakes, so if it's a little R&R you are looking for, this is the spot. It is very clean and great for swimming and water activities, not to mention the excellent fishing! Use the rowboat on site, fish off the dock, bring your own boat or rent a motorboat from a nearby marina. You are sure to catch perch, bass, pike, trout, and maybe some walleye. The level beachfront, along with a gradual walk into the water, make this property perfect for people of all ages!

This early 1900's cottage has undergone extensive renovation. It is been freshly painted and new flooring (ceramic tile, wood laminate, and carpet) installed throughout. All new appliances, furnishings, an updated kitchen and two new bathrooms give this home a nice fresh feel. Enjoy breathtaking views of the lake from the enclosed porch, which runs the length of the house or the spacious lakeside deck with comfy dining and lounge furniture. Sit back, relax and watch the kids and family enjoy the water right from the deck.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are both teachers in the area and are easy to get in touch with, especially in summer during your stay. We live fairly close to the cottage so whatever you need we are right here!

Why the Owner Chose Auburn, NY, USA:
We loved the character of the cottage and worked hard to keep it during our renovation. There is original wainscoting and woodwork. It has a New England feel to it. We also were happy that it was level for our small children at the time with a nice gradual walk out into the water. We could easily watch them play in the water while lounging on the deck. It's also only minutes to the city of Auburn, so very convenient!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Convenient to town and no stairs, cliffs or seawalls which are common on the finger lakes.
