About Tom Billard
While Pam and I grew up in New York State, this is our ideal place to be due to the location, the quality of the home and the sense of peace you feel here. I'm a graduate of Cornell, Pam of Manhattanville College and we both have masters from Syracuse. Our careers took us to Rochester, Sacramento and now Scottsdale. We love being at the lake - plenty of space to spread out and entertain family and friends in comfort! We have furnished the home with many antiques from our families as well as personal momentos. You will love this location as we do!
Tom Billard purchased this house in 2001
Why Tom Billard chose Tully
When we built the home in 2002 ( my Dad bought the old fishing cottage that dated back to the 1920s in 1968) we wanted to capitalize on the private location - end of the road and water on three sides. Unlike many other lake properties, this is totally private and secluded. Looking to the south, all you see is water and the beautiful, ever lasting hills. The lake is relatively small so most boaters are in canoes, on boards or in small watercraft. Sit on the porch (take your pick of one of four) and wave to those going by - it is so peaceful. When we built the house, we incorporated the old claw foot bathtub from the old cottage as well as four Tompkins County grilles in the overlook; our objective has been to provide our guests a comfortable, relaxing experience. We've had the property going on 50 years; we love to share it with our guests. It is like 'On Golden Pond.'
What makes this house unique
The porches are great - perfect for entertaining. On a cool evening, enjoy a fire while watching TV or reading a book. The wireless is perfect for your PC or ipad; take it anywhere. The adults can be downstairs while the kids can watch videos or play games upstairs. Go for a row and explore the lake? Lots of nooks and crannies here to explore, especially all the old cottages at the north end of the lake. While we are secluded, we are a short, scenic 25 minutes from Skaneateles and Syracuse - all the dining and entertainment you might want.
