Niles Cottage Rental Photos and Description
2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom. sleeps 5
'Listen to the quiet. It's the world humming.' Nestled down a semi-private lane in the woods where deer and wild turkey roam, this charming French country cottage decorated in shabby chic style offers a large deck, a beautiful gazebo, stunning views of the lake and 75 feet of private lakefront with Adirondack chairs, dock, three kayaks, a canoe and flotation devices. Faux painted stucco walls, MacKenzie-Child fish plates and mosaics, cathedral ceilings and one of a kind coziness make this the perfect location for a family of four or two couples looking for serenity and the quiet contemplation of beauty. Two fire pits, one by deck and one on beach, and a wood-stove, make for cozy bonfires. The cottage is also heated with electric heat, and offers the modern amenities of Direct TV top movie package with 700 channels and DVD player, Wifi satellite computer access, Gameboy, and a gas grill. Washer and dryer, pet and kid friendly; lawn and thirty-two steps to beach.
Beautiful, semi-private location: Although there are other privately owned camps nearby, the quiet is pervasive: awake to the sounds of birds and the lovely lapping of the lake. Located about half-way down Owasco lake on the east side, it is the perfect place for whiling away a summer's day. Hike the wood-lined half-mile road to the lane which offers a four-mile circle with beautiful views of the green fields and blue waters of Owasco lake. You are out in the country, and yet only fifteen minutes from the quaint village of Skaneateles and twelve minutes from Wegman's in Auburn and its other convenience stores. A perfect paradise for family and friends. Pets and children welcome- perfect for two vacationing couples or a family of four or five.

About Mary Ellen Yates
I am an English teacher at a local university. I live in the house closer to the fire lane so I am available for any questions and help you may need. I have owned the cottage for 13 years and have enjoyed meeting my renters and enjoying the peace and beauty of the beautiful setting.

Why Mary Ellen Yates chose Niles
It is unique in its decoration- very arty and shabby chic- and in its few, which is truly magnificent. It is perfect for a small family, a honeymoon couple, or two couples enjoying the beauty of the area near the Finger Lakes wineries and charming Skaneateles and Ithaca.
What makes this cottage unique
It is beautiful, and private- very few neighboring camps on this lane- yet not far from shores and civilization. Yet I feel whenever I am here that I am truly at peace with the world and at one with nature, because the view is so magnificent, especially at sunset. Yet it also has the modern conveniences: direct TV movie and sportspackage, Wi-fi, and all music stations for all tastes.
