2,500 Sq Ft Lake House, large water front yard, extensive outdoor living spaces
About Derek Orf
My wife and I, along with our 2 and 3 year old daughters, have called Silver Lake our Summer home since 2008. Our primary residence is a little under an hour away from the lake which makes it a convenient getaway after a long work week. We both have large families, that reside in Buffalo and Rochester, and our lake house has become a central gathering place for Summer picnics, BBQ's, and family gatherings. We haven't considered renting our lake house prior to this year, mainly because of all the work we have done to it. Now that we have two toddlers, we haven't been able to enjoy the lake as much as we would like to over the past couple years. We have decided to let other families enjoy our home and fun in the sun on Silver Lake.
Derek Orf purchased this House in 2012
Why Derek Orf chose Perry
Ironically, we owned the cottage right next door from 2008-2012. My wife and I bought that cottage before we had children and it suited us perfectly at the time. As our family was about to grow and more friends and family were visiting each Summer we quickly out grew our 1,000 square foot cottage. In 2012, this house became available and we hopped on in right away and increased out living space to 2,500 square feet. The character of the home was amazing, but it needed a complete overhaul. We did extensive renovations to the house that include: gutting the entire interior of the house, adding on a large deck off the four seasons room and completely reshaping the water front by adding a gigantic deck and outdoor living space right on the water. This property is a Lake house, not a cottage. It has everything you would expect out of a house (garage, driveway with ample parking, laundry room, fireplace, legitimate bedrooms, a dining room, four seasons room, living room, spacious kitchen, and a large yard).
What makes this House unique
Our house is located in the Village of Perry, which means we are on village water and sewers. Many of the cottages/homes on Silver Lake are on wells which naturally presents some challenges. Our waterfront was reconstructed in 2015 and the deck on the water is 50 feet wide spanning the entire width of our property. Our house is located in a great area for fishing off the docks. When our kids drop a line in the water, they typically end up with a bite within 5 minutes. We have a large yard between our house and the water so there is plenty of space for yard games and activities. The outdoor living spaces are probably the best features of our property. The large deck on the lake is a great place to relax and enjoy the water. The large deck off the four seasons room has a stone patio table that seats eight, along with an outdoor living room set (couch, two chairs, coffee table and end table). The four seasons room is a peaceful place to enjoy your morning coffee or wind down the evening and enjoy the sunset. Our Lake house faces West so we get the afternoon sun and the most amazing sunsets in Upstate New York. If you're looking for a Lake front vacation, this is the house for you!

Silver Lake/Perry House Rental
We just spent a week at this lovely lakeside home (August 2019). Everything exceeded our expectations. The home is beautiful in every way with a well equipped kitchen, and plenty of comfortable seating with a view of the lake. Their is also a lot of outdoor seating on the deck, lawn and lakeside deck. We look forward to renting this property again, and highly recommend it!
This house was perfect for our stay! We had two families and there was plenty of room for everyone. We loved sitting on the back deck to sip coffee in the morning and wine in the evening, while the kids played in the yard and on the dock. The house was extremely clean and very well equipped. Derek checked on us during our stay to make sure there wasn't anything we needed. The area is great, we went to Letchworth and Stony Brook parks and had some great hikes with the kids. We would highly recommend this house for your next getaway, we can't wait to go back.
My family and I had such a great time at this lovely house on Silver Lake. It was spacious and clean with an amazing deck and all season porch! The owners left a sweet note to welcome us along with fixings for s’mores. I highly recommend!!
Memorial Day Weekend
We stayed three nights at this lovely property by the lake. The house was spotless and there was plenty of room for five adults to move about and relax. The kitchen is well equipped and there's even a wine fridge. The views of the lake from the three-season room and back deck are beautiful and we were able to get on the lake with our kayaks.
The owners welcomed us with a nice note and fixings for s'mores and checked in by text during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. We would rent here again.
beautiful Lakside Home
We really enjoyed our stay. The house was beautiful and very clean. Had a great time watching the sunset over the lake.
lovely lake home
Our family had a memorable time at this lake house on Easter weekend. The owner of the property was very accommodating with whatever we needed during our stay. The house is charming and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed coming home to it and being comfortable after our white water rafting trip at Letchworth State Park. We also got to visit Niagara Falls during our stay. We would highly recommend this property!
