About Holly Geary

Relaxing on the deck in the middle of a winter snowfall

Holly Geary purchased this house in 2004

Why Holly Geary chose New York

I have been enjoying living on the finger lakes for the past 25 years. I bought my first vacation home on Cayuga Lake in 1988. Each of the lakes is unique and will appeal to a wide variety of renters. I love boating (motor and sail) and swimming. My children grew up on these lakes and we continue to enjoy the great family reunions we have every year.

What makes this house unique

Our property is quite private and perfect to enjoy a family getaway but is also large enough to accommodate reunions or small weddings. The waterfront is beautiful and is perfect for boating, swimming, or just relaxing. The firepit is a nice place to enjoy the evenings and there are no mosquitoes! The hot tub is perfect for any time with a view down to the lake.

Jardina & Larry Wedding July 28, 2017

  • 5 of 5

Great home to stay at for the week for my son's wedding on Lake Seneca. We had my 3 daughters and their families - 12 all together. Love the lake and of course the 169 steps down to the dock. It was a workout, but we loved the home. Spent 2 nights at the fire pit making smores w/ the 5 grandchildren. We all had fun in the hot tube, ping pong table and used the air hockey table. The home had everything we needed. Thanks Holly for the hospitality. Kevin Jardina

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly what we were looking for. There was plenty of room for everyone and we brought our boat so the dock area was fantastic. The kayaks, hot tub, fire pit were all perfect. There were tons of kitchen items including plastic wrap, and basics.

Beautiful House and View!

  • 5 of 5

This house and property has everything! This is one of the best places I've ever rented. The location is very secluded, there is a gravel road leading up to it but is well maintained and we did not have any issues with any cars getting to it. There is a nice vehicle overhang by the front door for loading/unloading in the rain. Along the side of the house there is a stream that rushes down the hill which adds to the relaxing feel of the home. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, utensils, and appliances; everything you would need to feel right at home. The house has everything; screened in porch, large deck, one of the best fire pits I've ever seen, a game room in the basement with ping pong and air hockey, electronics all worked well and up to date - easy to play music inside and out from a device, really nice dock for boating or hanging out by the water, and hot tub. Something for everybody! It was raining the entire weekend we were there, but we were never bored and were able to really appreciate and use the home. The owner is very nice and easy to work with. They respond quickly to emails. I highly recommend this home!

Peaceful and Enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

Great Home enjoyed by my entire family. We had a family a 5, w/ 3 children ages 6 to 13, plus 4 others staying on regular basis. The house was cozy and comfortable, but spacious enough to never feel on top of one another. We had additional family members come over during the day to spend time on the lake. Kitchen was very well stocked; (really everything you need was there, other than food). Back deck had plenty of space and seating, and the umbrellas came in handy on the hot days. Screened sunroom was also a big hit. The lake was awesome, clear, and refreshing. Boathouse had everything one could ask for. Dock was large, also with good seating options. Kids and Adults alike had fun on the kayaks. We personally liked this side of the lake since it did not get the west sun, which made afternoons on the dock quite appealing. The fire pit was also great! ... I personally enjoyed all the steps up and down; (great exercise), but it may not be for everyone. The house was very private, peaceful, and serene. Watching the sun and moon rise from the upper landing was amazing! Also liked the little details; things as simple as landscaping and flower beds/pots that made the place that much more picturesque. One suggested improvement ... A couple beds were extremely firm. Allowing guests the option to put a pillow top on or something, might provide a way to accommodate different preferences. Overall though, an amazing house, and I recommend to anyone looking for a quieter stay on the lake.
