About the Property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

Located on Spafford Landing (also known as Wickwire Point), our Waterfall Cottage overlooks a beautiful and private waterfall. The pristine waters of Skaneateles Lake are just 100 yards down the driveway, with great swimming, fishing and boating.

Our 45-acre property abuts a 200-acre nature preserve with great hiking trails.

Cottage is small but cozy. 1 bedroom with double bed. Sleeping loft has a "full" bed (sleeps two but is smaller than a true double bed) and 2 twins. 1 bathroom with shower. Wood stove (firewood included) and electric heaters for cool evenings. No TV, but WiFi is included.

Lakefront has level beach. We have two canoes (with paddles and life jackets) and 4 mountain bikes (1 men's, 1 women's, and 2 children's (20")(bring helmets!). Sturdy rowboat with 6HP outboard and full tank of gas available for additional fee of $100. Mooring available if you have a boat.

Our beach has unobstructed and dramatic views of the lake, and from our location on the east side of the lake, we enjoy spectacular sunsets, often around a bonfire.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: We've summered on Spafford Landing our entire lives. Our three children grew up here, exploring the woods, swimming, and boating, going outside in the morning and returning when they got hungry. It's a special place.

Why the Owner Chose Homer, NY, USA:
Our family has owned property on the Lake since the 1940s, and when our neighbor decided to sell in 1992, we didn't hesitate to buy this property. Our original family homestead has passed down to cousins, and Spafford Landing remains a large part of our family heritage.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our Waterfall Cottage is a sanctuary from the stresses of modern life.
