Sue Napier / Property Manager purchased this house in 2001

Why Sue Napier / Property Manager chose New York

Wanted lakefront and fell in love with spacious private property. Surrounded by nature, a wonderful getaway.. It's a fabulous custom built house, not a cottage. Great location and love the lake life, fishing and boating.

What makes this house unique

nice flat yard, easy access to lake, private drive, secluded area; love the lot with waterfront and lagoon on side with variety of wildlife. Often see blue heron, turtles, variety of birds, rabbits, deer, etc.

We offer one of the few properties that is waterfront, big enough for multiple families, allows pets, has a hot tub and all the amenities.


Excellent! 4.3/5 -

Excellent time and Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time here and will not be the last! We did have to call the owners with a question and they answered the phone right away and answered all our questions. We would Highly recommend for anyone to stay there! There was a lot to do there inside and out, including a Hot Tub and a Pool Table, it was the first time many of the kids played pool! There is WiFi and it worked perfect! We caught a lot of fish from the shore and the dock!

We arrived on Saturday only to find the house was barely clean - the yard had dog crap all over , the beds had bed spreads just thrown on them that were dirty by the way, the hot tub was disgusting - filled with dirty water and leaves, ants coming through the screen upstairs in the bedroom where there is a deck , the garbage totes outside were not emptied and filled to the top , front door lock was broken , there was a hornets nest on the garage that has been there for some time and bees swarming in and out of it right near the front door. On Sunday we started the grill and let it warm up - we noticed black smoke coming from the grill - opened it up and it was on fire- the grill was a mess with grease that had not been cleaned up and the drain for grease was filled to the top and pouring over on the map underneath. The owner showed up on Sunday unannounced to clean the hot tub that the people previously complained about and spent 4 hours there of our time cleaning it - this should have been done before we arrived - we advised her of the garbage and she stated she would take it with her - Again this should have been done prior to arrival . She was very rude to everyone , barely talked to anyone there . When she left after 4 hours we went to see the hot tub and the leaves were still in there as if all she did was drain the water and apparently the jets in the tub are filled with crap that she never flushed - we never once used the hot tub as it was gross. When the owner left she was in the driveway taking pictures of our cars ??? During the week the air conditioning stopped working - she sent someone to fix it who indicated he knew exactly what the issue was - It had never been cleaned . This women is only there to take your money - stay away. Not worth a dime - Make sense why she is selling it - Oh and by the way no matter what you do she will not refund your deposit - look at the 150 rules at the laundry room she has - She will find a way to screw you out of your deposit . We paid for the extra people who stayed one night $50.00 per person because she claimed that was additional wear and tear - however she stated she was keep the deposit also for wear and tear - which is crap - the property was cleaner when we left than when we arrived - I would not stay here ever - The owner is a money hungry person who cares nothing about people's vacations - Beware of renting from her. We rent places yearly and will never rent from this lady again .

Owner's Response: We have several dozens of guests that stay each summer, that have a wonderful time and love the place. They rarely take the time after, to give a review. It is unfortunate that there is no accurate way to show the percentage of happy guests. We have to approximately 100 guests that stay for a week during the summer, and 250 people that stay for a weekend, each year. The percentage of unhappy is 1 out of 250. We do our best to ensure the property is in great shape and people enjoy the property. Unfortunately this summer, we had a disagreement with this guest who made nasty remarks that were gross exaggerations. We regret that we have no way of turning back time. We try to run this like a hotel, with many amenities and fast response. We spend hundreds of hours preparing the property before and after the busy summer season. We have several families that return every year for an annual stay. We make upgrades to the property every year, and work very hard to keep it in top condition. During the busy summer, we only have a 6 hour window to completely clean, find and fix any issues. We often are not notified if something breaks. With such a large property, it is a difficult task to find everything, but we are diligent. If we are notified, we immediately address every concern, issues are usually fixed the same day. It will be fully prepared for you to enjoy & we know that you will have a wonderful time.

We really enjoyed our time at the lake and at the house. The house had a friendly layout and the pool table was really fun! The kitchen was great for cooking but could use a few items like kitchen towels and serving bowls... The dock was amazing and we loved using the kayaks and canoes many times a day! What a great addition to the house! The owners of this home are very easy to work with which made the experience easy and pleasant... Thank you!

Plenty of wildlife lakeside!

  • 4 of 5

Nicely appointed and clean but well-loved. The hot tub needs some TLC, as we could not get it above 90 degrees and many of the knobs had been broken off. We used the hot tub only on our last night so it didn’t make sense to contact the owner about the issue.

A serene setting, really conducive to gathering about the games and dining table.

Kitchen was well-appointed but could use measuring cups. Dish soap and cleaning supplies were provided. Toilet paper and paper towels provided.

Fire pit had no wood supplied.

The setting was terrific. The lake is gorgeous. Every morning some new form of wildlife strolled by lakeside

Five minute drive to a grocery store.

We would definitely return if in the area again.

The house was clean, well-maintained and well-stocked. The property is beautiful and large. I spent the weekend there with a group of friends and we had plenty of space to sit down to dinner together or to spread out to get some alone time. The yard was surprising large for a lake front property. The lake is very calm and perfect for canoeing and kayaking.

We had a wonderful time at this house and town

  • 4 of 5

We had great time at the house. The fact that its just besides the Honeoye lake was a huge plus. We loved the view and we also got to use the canoes and kayaks to spend some time on the lake.

The property also had a lot of amenities like hot tub, pool table, foosball table among other stuff which helped us,have a great time.

There were a couple of things that concerned us a little bit. The locks on one of the bathroom wasnt working. Since we were 4 families sharing the house, it was a little bit difficult. Also there were some pet hairs on one of the couches facing the lake. Since we had infants/toddlers that was a concern.

Other than these minor glitches we had a wonderful time and this house has everything that you look for, when you are on s vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. Your comfort while at Melody Woods is our first and foremost concern. We regret the concern about the dog hair. It is a pet-friendly property and we try to ensure everything is clean. We acknowledge that our dog comes with us during the off-season, and we didn't check for that. We will immediately address this concern.
