About Holly Geary

This is our family cottage. My sister and I manage this property for the family. We have been renting it for the last two years when the family is not using it. My husband and I have a cottage next door.

Holly Geary purchased this house in 1997

Why Holly Geary chose Interlaken

We have been on Holton Beach for the last 50 years. We love the lake because we sail, kayak and canoe. The lake is generally quiet (not alot of motor boat traffic)

What makes this house unique

Ithaca and the parks are 15-20 minutes from our cottage. There are many wineries, distilleries and cider mills in the areas. At the top of our road is the Cayuga Creamery which makes the best homemade ice cream in New York State.

We had a great time, even with bad weather most of the week!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the setup of the house and that the rooms were all about the same size. One thing that would have been better would be a larger yard for the younger kids to play, without the risk of a drop off into the lake. Overall, our stay was terrific!

Perfect house! Makes for a Great Lake vacation!

The house was perfect for our group of 3 young families! It had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The area is beautiful and the ice cream shop up the road was a great bonus. We loved the house and highly recommend it!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Spent 3 nights here with some close friends. The home itself is large and accommodating. This area of the lake is calm and tranquil. The dock and fire pit were nice features as well. The home was clean and organized. I would certainly rent again.
