PRIVATE, SPACIOUS, LEVEL 2 ACRE RETREAT W/ SPECTACULAR PANORAMIC VIEWS

Auburn House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom areas, 2 full baths, sleeps 9

A private waterfront retreat with spectacular views of beautiful Owasco Lake is what our Poplar Cove home is all about. It has all the privacy you need with over 100 feet of water frontage and two acres of level grassy lawn, yet is conveniently located only one mile from the city of Auburn. This spacious home boasts a remarkable open floor plan with brand new large picture windows and over-sized patio doors (this year 2012) that provide absolutely breathtaking panoramic views of the shimmering bright blue waters. The living space has brand new wood laminate flooring, freshly painted crisp white walls, and tasteful modern furniture and decor.

Outdoors we have an extremely large deck with a gas grill, a table that seats 6, another table that seats 2, and plenty of lounge furniture for your gatherings. There are two docks, one with a boat hoist. Go ahead and bring your own boat or rent one from a local marina and dock it here at the house. We do have two kayaks that you are free to use. The shoreline has a seawall that is about four feet high and the water is usually around two feet high at the edge. The water level gradually goes out to about four feet deep at the end of the longer dock. There is a rather large sandbar you can kayak out to for some play in the sandy water approximately 150 yards to the northeast. Most areas of Owasco Lake have rocky bottoms. Everyone loves our large grassy lawn for kickball, soccer, volleyball, flying a kite or just plain old relaxing by the water.

Suitability:
  • Low Allergen Environment
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome

LAKE FRONT AREA NICE

  • 2 of 5
We arrived at this home with high expectations. The sliders out to the front, the deck and the front yard leading to the dock/water were very nice. Unfortunately, the rest of the house did not meet our expectations. To the owner's credit, when we let her know our feelings about the cleanliness of the house, she offered to come and make it right, but on the Thursday of our week stay, my friend had a mouse run up the front of her and that sort of was the end of it for us. At that point we did notice mouse droppings in some of the cabinets. The property is not well maintained, but if aesthetics don't bother you, then that is not an issue. The couch/sleeper sofas in the living room are in pretty bad shape, but if you are not looking for comfort when sleeping, that is also not an issue. There is a bedroom upstairs with a very tiny bathroom and another bedroom/master downstairs with an attached bathroom, but unless you don't care about disturbing the person(s) sleeping in that room, the bathroom is only accessible when everyone is up for the day.

Owner's Response: This group complained when they first arrived that there were still towels drying, that a screen was partially coming out of the door and they wished there were more beds. We fixed the screen right away, but thought the other complaints were odd. Then 5 days into their stay got the complaints that the upstairs shower was not cleaned well and that the refrigerator seal was dirty (which ended up being just a discoloring). I offered to come and take care of these things and also deal with the mouse but they said they were just going to leave. Once every two or three years, we encounter a mouse, but it is usually in the winter months (this cottage is on two acres outside the city and has woods nearby). I did feel bad about this, but they said they were going to leave regardless of how it was handled. They had stayed the week before this at a newly built home on a small lot down the street and had higher expectations for our home because of the price.
Our home is well maintained and taken care of. This year it got a new roof, new windows and doors in half the house and in the last few years got all new wood laminate flooring in the living room, dining area, and kitchen. It also got new berber carpets and new bathroom flooring along with fresh paint inside and many new linens, quilts, decor. Everything is in good working order.
Even though we love the cottage itself, the absolute best part about it is the privacy, two acre lawn, 108 feet of lake front and the fabulous views!

FAMILY REUNION HEADQUARTERS

  • 5 of 5
The family of a Cornell graduate stayed at this loction Memorial Day week to attend graduation ceremonies (Saturday and Sunday). Those that stayed at the cottage were 3 Uncles and Aunts, four cousins (age 1 to 13) and grandpa. Total 11; 3 camped out in a tent near the deck. The family of the graduate, stayed in Ithaca but came to the cottage cookouts following the Saturday and Ceremonies.

The 40 minute commute to Ithaca was pleasant as we entered the campus from the north with no hassel or delays, avoiding the heavy and restricted campus traffic.

The facilities at the cottage were as advertized: plenty of bedding and towels, kitchen well stocked with appliances in good working order, cooking, tools and eqiipment, and serving dishes and plates,

Access to supplies were convient in Auburn.

No plumbing problems and new sliding doors worked great. The view and activity of the lake were a treat.

This was a pleasant way for the family to gather for this occasion. We will do it again sometime.

HAD A GREAT STAY!

  • 4 of 5
The house was spacious and had mostly everything we needed to have a comfortable weekend.

The kitchen came fully stocked with equipment, glasses, dishware, etc. Furniture was comfortable and the house was also stocked with many blankets, sheets, and towels.

My group and I had a great time grilling, kayaking, and using the campfire.

We had an issue with logging for than four people at a time onto the wireless internet, and the door to the back of the house was really hard to open.

I definitely recommend this house to people looking for a nice getaway at a value.

Owner's Response: Our priority for the spring/summer 2012 season is to install three brand new sets of sliding patio doors. They are very large and heavy and are getting a bit difficult to slide easily.

CONVENIENT LOCATION

  • 3 of 5
Location was perfect for us- very close to Auburn. Main room was nice for family enjoyment. Good for family with kids who don't want to worry about wrecking a place (not alot of breakable things around) and a very large yard. It was not a dump, but not a palace. A 3 star rating should really be about a 2.5- more like a C+/B-.

The house did have a kind of funny smell that was somewhat masked by air fresheners that were about. The drain in downstairs bathroom sink was stuck in closed position so water couldn't drain. Door to back deck was very difficult to open and screen was not in place so bugs could get through easily (same for screen on front window). Window in kitchen could not close completely so cold air gets in all night. Needed more blankets available for beds-got pretty cold. TV/DVD was kind of hard to figure out and there were no directions. Kitchen/dining area was very convenient with breakfast bar separating the two. Shower water pressure was excellent!
