Recent Owasco Lake reviews

  • A lovely property with great facilities and space

    "We booked this for a vacation for our extended family, and were looking specifically for somewhere near a lake but not necessarily right on the water. it worked out brilliantly. Christine the owner was kind, helpful, polite and very responsive. We had eight adults, in four couples, and a baby with us and there was plenty of space and beds for everyone. The house officially takes 20+ people and it was very comfortable for 9, with two sitting rooms, a dining room, plenty of outdoor furniture, and four large double bedrooms, a smaller double, and a single. There was a cot for the baby, enormous amounts of bedding and towels available, and plenty of comfortable places to sit. The kitchen was very well stocked with pots, pans and knives, the oven was easy to use, and it was well-kept and clean. Because the house can be used for large groups, there were two fridge-freezers which was great as well as a barbecue on the patio. It was easy to cook for large groups in the spacious kitchen and there was a dishwasher, meaning that the cleaning up was pretty easy. As had a 14 month old child with us, we wanted to make sure he'd be safe outside and that we would all be able to enjoy the water. The garden is huge - a long rolling lawn with a basketball hoop, benches and firepit. There's a short walk through a neighboring garden to get to the private dock and that proved ideal. The house has a pair of canoes and paddles, which we took out on the lake several times. Owasco Lake itself has quite a stony shore, but it was still possible to swim off the dock provided you wore waterproof shoes (recommended!). There's a number of very good restaurants in Auburn - we particularly liked Moro's Table (fancy & French), Lasca's (family friendly, excellent Italian trattoria), and Green Shutters (diner-style restaurant with outdoor seating and lots of ice cream choices). The Long Point State Park near the picturesque town of Aurora on Cayuga Lake and the pretty town of Skaneateles both offered good days out. We would highly recommend this place for any family or large group looking for a comfortable, clean, pleasant place to stay in the Finger Lakes. It was lovely."

  • Great to hang out at the beach

    "Great to hang out at the beach and use all of the watercraft (kayaks, paddle boards, flotations, rowboat, sailboat). The children had a great time whether on the beach and in the water, or at the house with the games and game room. A relaxing vacation."

  • A small mansion on the lake

    "Just came back from a great week at Owasco Lake. The house is huge. There was plenty of room for our party of 4 adults and 4 kids. The fact that this house is directly on the lake is a huge plus as it offers a perfect opportunity to use the lake for both swimming and kayaking. Bring water shoes as there are pebbles when entering the lake. The “backyard” is enormous and kids spent a lot of time playing all kinds of games there. A wine cooler in the kitchen was a pleasant surprise as the area offers pretty decent Rieslings. We cooked most of the dinners but there is a couple of very nice restaurants in both Auburn and Skaneateles. The owners of the house replied super-fast to all our questions. Highly recommend this house."

  • Very relaxing and quiet.

    "We stayed a week and had the most relaxing vacation ever. The house is cozy and has everything we needed. We had a problem with the refrigerator not working on the first day but was assured by Christine the problem was freezing and would be OK overnight. It was and we were compensated for our trouble. If you are looking for a relaxing quiet vacation this is it. Thank you Christine."
