We had a great stay at the Nixon Cottage. It was our first time to Syracuse, though we have rented lake houses for years. Syracuse is a nice area. There was a park with beach about 1 mile away that the kids enjoyed when we needed a little change of scenery. There is also a full grocery store in town, which was very nice. At the house, we swam off the dock all week. We really enjoyed the firepit and sandy areas too. Also, we tend to cook a lot on vacation and we appreciated that the kitchen was fully stocked with pots, pans, and utensils.
The house itself was quaint and fit us all, but it could use a little updating and a more thorough cleaning. However, if you are looking for a fun family getaway in the area, this is definitely an acceptable place to stay.
Pro tip: I highly recommend looking into boat rentals prior to your stay. We did not and there were none available to rent. We did rent kayaks from Sock marina, which they delivered to and picked up from the property.
Good time was had by all !
A very nice property; sitting under the shade trees next to the lake was peaceful and relaxing. The lake was soo refreshing during some of the hottest days of this summer.
When contacted, our propane tank was replaced the next morning. Also, the seaweed was cleaned out promptly.
The only problem was the sulfer smell of the hot water, which was very unpleasant.
Seating in the living room was not the most comfortable. However. the kids sat around a small table playing games; good to see technology replaced with human interaction.
Good time spent playing , eating and laughter, by all.
First time renter
My family of 12 had a great time at Nixon Cottage. 6 adults 6 children ages 4 to 8. The cottage was well equipped beyond expiation. The location and lake were great. Looking forward to next year.
Well appointed and a great location.
We had nine male family members and each had their own bed. Cabin was well equipped and very comfortable for that many folks.
Great cottage on Syracuse Lake.
We had a wonderful weekend at the Nixon Cottage. The property is well maintained and comfortable with a wonderful yard and pier for enjoying the lake. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals and snacks. We will definitely return for my next high school reunion!
