Better Than You Expect
I rented this house as a staycation for myself, my dog and my family. The large porch is fully gated in which is amazing for anyone with pets or children. There is also an enclosed grass area for pets that you can let off leash. The interior of this place is spacious enough to accommodate many people if the weather doesn’t allow you to remain outdoors. But above all, the lake side porch, boat house and dock is the biggest selling point. You can easily dock your boat here. There are two sets of steps into the water - concrete steps that are great for dogs and a metal ladder for those not ready to dive off the dock. There is also a fire pit which is awesome! Just move some of the lake chairs from the deck over and you have plenty of room for at least 7 (definitely more who bring their own chairs or stand) to make s’mores. We found this to be incredibly private and we felt comfortable, welcome and safe this entire trip. I could go on and on about the luxuries of this rental but I will leave you with two further reviews. There are three sets of glass doors overlooking the lake which are incredible anytime of the day, but unbelievable at sunrise and sunset. Whether you are indoors on the couch or outdoors on a deck chair or at the picnic table, you won’t find a better view on this lake. Lastly, the owner of this property will check in with you and make sure everything is ok. Eric texted me to make sure all was ok and was extremely attentive. Paulette met me upon check in and made me feel incredibly welcome. She gave me an overview and rundown of the property and genuinely was happy to see me. If you want an outdoor family getaway where everyone (including dogs) are welcome, you want to choose this rental. I can’t wait to rent this place again once we figure out a date and I hope to rent it for a longer duration since I could not get enough of this place. You will not be disappointed with this rental. There is plenty of parking, a grill and lots of kitchen dishes that you may have overlooked while packing. I don’t know this owner but I do appreciate kindness and a location to build memories with my family so that is why this review is so long. This rental was just perfect. *We never turned the TV on so I can’t comment to that but the WiFi was great*
Thanks so much Jen for the kind words. We're so glad you had such a good stay, that's what it's all about! Would love to have you back next summer!
Slice of Heaven on the Lake
Everything about our stay was perfect from the excellent communication with Eric to the warm greeting and orientation from Paulette to the beautifully appointed home and incredible access and views of Skaneateles Lake. Our only regret is that we weren't able to stay longer. It was hard to leave this magical place.
We loved taking the kayaks (supplied by Eric) out on the lake each morning, having our breakfast on the dock next to the boathouse, and marveling at the gorgeous river and sky views from all rooms of the house. It was a perfect anniversary getaway for us and we hope to return again.
Thank you, Eric and Liz, for letting us stay in your beautiful home. You thought of everything, and we felt so comfortable and lucky to be there.
You're very welcome Linda, thank you for being a great guest! Hope to have you back again next year!
Great cottage on an amazing lake!
Our stay was great. Eric is really responsive with helpful information. The view is amazing and cottage has everything.
Thanks so much Amie, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to hopefully having youy back again next year!
Lovely cottage on beautiful lake
Awesome cottage on south side of Skaneateles Lake. Easy to access cottage and lake (not many steps to climb) which can be hard to come by on this beautiful lake. Plenty of parking which is also a premium on this lake. The cottage is comfortable and clean and has large windows with great views of the lake. The deck off the front of the cottage is big and provides a great place to socialize with wonderful views. The decking down by the water is also large and a very nice area to sit and relax. We rented a large pontoon from Skaneateles Marina and it fit with ease into the dock area. The cottage is equipped with just about everything you need. A washer and dryer make a longer stay easy. The air conditioning unit is a window air conditioner in the main area. There was just one fan in one bedroom. Fans for each of the bedrooms are needed for hot days/nights. There were some small tears in the screens so we were forced to keep the windows closed to avoid letting in bugs at night. It would have been nice to have them open to get more air circulation. Overall it was great and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing lake vacation. Plenty to do and see in the area.
Thanks so much for the kind words Phyllis, I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay and I hope you enjoy the rest of your summer! -Eric
The perfect fit!
Enjoyed the entire week at the lake house. House was just right for my family. The swimming deck on the lake allowed for relaxation, privacy while you take a swim. The kids really enjoyed hanging out in the boathouse.Great views from the house while
sitting on the deck for meals. The owner Eric was responsive and very accommodating. I have rented lake houses before and this rental by far was my best experience, thank you!
Thanks Mike, it was a pleasure having you and your family stay at the house! So glad you enjoyed it so much. Enjoy the rest of the summer. -Eric
Clean and well equipped cottage with a good layout and lovely views of the lake. The area was very quiet and we thoroughly enjoyed the use of the kayaks from which we were able to get quite close to a number of bald eagles.
You certainly had a special treat - we try to see the bald eagles often by kayak but only get lucky once in a while. Very glad you enjoyed your stay. Enjoy the rest of the summer!
Other notable places near the house are Carpenter's Falls, Fillmore Glen State Park, Bear Swamp State Forest, the High Vista Nature Preserve, the Hinchcliff Family Preserve and the Skaneateles Marina in Mandana where you can rent kayaks, canoes, stand-up paddle boards, stand-up pedal boards and pontoon boats. And believe it or not, there is also a large Buffalo farm nearby called Skaneateles Buffalo in the Town of Scott on Long Road - you can easily drive by and see the full herd, it's pretty cool.
