Great lil hide away

  • 5 of 5

Was nice place to stay. Owner attentive and property well taken care of. Neighbor pretty close on each side but wasn't an issue. We were there in mid-October and was somewhat chilly when night temp dipped below 60. Only one heat source (Electric fireplace) and in cooler eves, could get chilly inside. Is electronics free. No TV, cable, internet or radio so prepare yourself. If that is what you are seeking, then this is the place for you. Only 10 minutes from downtown Auburn and not too far from Cortland and other short jaunts if you so desire. Would def recommend this place.

Lovely, cozy and clean lakefront cottagel

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the cottage for only two nights but we did wish we would have had the time to stay longer. The cottage and property were immaculate and decorated in an appealing country/lake décor. I loved that linens were provided and water was potable since we had stayed in other cottages on some of the Finger lakes and that was not the case. Our time was short but certainly memorable and we hope to return sometime for an extended vacation stay on beautiful Owasco Lake.

Perfect cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Could not have imagined a more perfect getaway for the weekend! The cottage was so cute and cozy and had everything we needed- great for cooking, relaxing, and using the grill. The best part was waking up and being right on the lake-- it was great to eat breakfast and read out on the porch by the water, and we loved sitting around the fire-pit at night. The cabin was also in a great location-- we had a great day trip doing a wine tour around nearby Cayuga lake-- and had all necessary resources within a 10 minute drive (grocery store, gas station, etc).

Nancy was extremely responsive and gracious, and overall was great to deal with. I hope we can come back to this cottage, and will definitely recommend it to friends!

Softer side of New York

  • 5 of 5

This is an ideal rental for a wonderful lake front experience and relaxing time around the Owasco Lake near Auburn, NY. Very clean and all the conveniences you'd hope for - very inviting scenery having the lake at your back door with dock and fire pit for cool evening relaxation in wonderful Adirondack chairs. Kitchen is well stocked and good quality items. Comfortable bed (only used one) and quiet peaceful evenings to truly relax and unwind. Location is ideal - close to but not too close to stores or day trips into town , nearby Emerson Park for extra Kayak Rentals or boarding. And yes - follow Yelp for some great nearby restaurants. I highly suggest Angelo's for Pizza and "Oak and Vine" @ Springside Inn.

I highly recommend this rental property for a small family or couple that likes to stay where you truly feel like welcomed guests. Book and Enjoy w/o a worry !!

Our little piece of heavan.

  • 5 of 5

Once again, this delightful property did not fail.....we are repeat customers, and have decided to make this our permanent vacation home (that is as long as the owner continues to rent).

Immaculate inside and out, and large lawn with plenty of outdoor seating. Smores and the fire pit at night are favorites.

Close proximity to the traffic circle, theater at the lake, which has wonderful performances, and local businesses (and my family).

We grilled often, kayaked everyday, and enjoyed the beautiful large deck with extended family.

Neighbors are so friendly, and we now look forward to seeing them and their wonderful grandchildren every year.

Another visit, that while it was too short this year, was just so lovely in so many ways.
