Two families (nine people) rented the house for a week so we could relax and make a couple college visits to NE schools. First off, the pictures actually undersell the place. The views and accomodations are spectacular. One teenage daughter, not one for complimenting any adults, said after a few hours, "Wow, sorry I doubted you, Dad." House is so big we never even got to the spacious basement. Kayaks and canoes are fun. Massive sidelawn allows for wiffleball etc. We rented a pontoon boat from nice folks at Boat Oneida and spent a day on the water with the kids tubing. Baseball Hall of Fame was an easy day trip. Bring passports if you want to see both sides of Niagara Falls, though. Oh, and food shopping is at Wegmans!!! About 10 minutes away. Kids did the Destiny USA mall and said they enjoyed it. Downsides: Not many. Nearby lake beach was just OK and lake water not the clearest. Overall, would rent again in a heartbeat. Would happily spend a whole week just sitting on the deck staring at the water.
