About Don Troyer

Owners Don and Andrea Troyer live in the Buffalo, New York area, with their little puppy, Dooley.

Don Troyer purchased this house in 2014

Why Don Troyer chose Oneida Lake

We purchased this property in 2014 because we have family members in the Syracuse area and wanted to be able to spend time with them, as well as to share some of the summer weeks with those looking for a comfortable and enjoyable place to stay.

What makes this house unique

The property is on a private, secluded lot, directly on the water's edge, so you can relax and just enjoy the solitude and beauty with scenic views, or travel to nearby Syracuse for plenty of action if that's what you want. It's the best of all worlds.

As you can see from our reviews over the last couple of years, people love our place and a number of them re-book.

average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

4 Star Rating -- Great place, enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, the house was very well kept and all the comforts of home were available. We did many day trips so didn't have the opportunity to enjoy the paddle boats. Only recommendation would be to provide some instructions for the TV and VCR.

Would definitely recommend this home and would consider returning.

Thanks for a wonderful time!

A very relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with all of the household items that were provided for us - we didn't have to bring a thing besides our food! The house and the property were very well maintained. We enjoyed relaxing by the lake during the day and having a fire in the evening. The sandy beach down the road was nice to visit too. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing week!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 felt right at home with plenty of room for all of us. My husband and son went early morning fishing every morning and the girls and I went paddle boating every morning. After lunch we would take a boat ride and jump in to cool off. After dinner we would have Ladder Ball competitions and with the spacious yard we even got a family soccer game going. The grocery store was only 2 miles away and the marina was just down the road where we kept our boat. Everything you need is there! We stored our fishing poles in the shed with no saftey worries at all. The kids loved playing in the water right off the doc and when they needed a change we paddled over to the beach where there was a life guard and a playground. We loved every minute!!

Fun at the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last summer with the kids and absolutely loved it! Very nice, clean and updated. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and prepare meals. Paddle boats were a blast too. We had a campfire every night and made smores. Loved enjoying a cup of coffee on the back deck in the morning while watching boats go by.

I highly recommend staying here - we will be back again this summer and can't wait!

This is a place I would return to in a heartbeat. Far enough away to be peaceful, close enough to access whatever you need in 15 minutes. The accommodations were perfect for our family. There is everything you could need in the kitchen, the paddle boats, kayak, ladder ball and fire pit accounted for countless hours of fun for all. This is the calm end of the lake which is a real bonus!
