About Ron and Gina Frawley

I am an automotive engineer who moved to the Syracuse area from metro Detroit in 1996. My 2 daughters were raised here, and graduated from Canastota High School; both are currently in college. I recently moved back to the Detroit area due to changes in our business resulting from the auto industry crisis, and married a beautiful lady who has 2 younger children. My wife and I enjoy coming back to Sylvan Beach whenever possible; we had considered moving here if business conditions were better, and hope to spend our retirement here in the summer season down the road.

Ron and Gina Frawley purchased this house in 2006

Why Ron and Gina Frawley chose Finger Lakes

I lived in this home for over 6 years, and really came to love the Sylvan Beach community. In many ways, it feels like you've walked back in time 50 or more years, yet it also offers every modern day convenience a person could ever want. My wife and I have enjoyed refurbishing the home over the past year, with the hope that others who already know of the fun this town has to offer, or anyone looking for a new, unique, relaxing vacation destination might enjoy it as well. The home offers a convenient location where you can enjoy all of the amenities in the village and regional area, and yet you can escape to the quiet home setting for a more private experience as well.

What makes this house unique

Canal front is great for fishing on property. Numerous docks are great for boats of all sizes, and offer protected harbor from the often rough waters on Oneida lake. Within a couple blocks of the Village attractions, yet private and far enough away from it all when you want peace and quiet. 2 kayaks and numerous bikes are included.

Wonderful vacation cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this cabin. Sylvan Beach is a great little village with lots of nostalgic charm. The cottage is within a very easy walking distance to the lake, restaurants and amusement park but far enough away to feel very calm, peaceful and relaxing. We loved having the canal right there, we caught some good sized bass right off the dock with the provided fishing gear. We also took advantage of the kayaks which was really fun. It's an easy kayak ride to the lake or you can just stay right in the canal. The itself was very clean and comfortable and I loved the decor. Everything we needed was there. The owners are extremely nice and went above and beyond at every step. I would totally stay here again.

The Perfect Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy that we picked this home for our vacation. The owners were extremely personable and hospitable before, during and after our stay. The home had everything we could have needed and was cute, cozy and exceptionally clean. It was really nice to have a waterfront home without the waterfront price tag...definitely exceeded our expectations! We would love to go back again some day in the near future. Also, it was comforting to find such nice people that allow pets to vacation with the family. No worries to those without pets, as the home was super clean and smelled great!

Sweet Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean, comfortable, and conveniently located in Sylvan Beach. The docks were located on the channel to Oneida Lake which is perfect for kids to fish. It is just a short distance on the channel to the lake where fishing was amazing and scenery was beautiful. This house has pretty much everything you need for a perfect vacation. The price was fair as well!

Super vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations. It was clean, comfortable, spacious, and convenient to all local festivities. We were able to walk to the beach, amusement park, and restaurants. We discovered a favorite ice cream shop that became our nightly stop on our way back to the house. The owners are fantastic people that obviously take pride in their vacation home. I am sure that on our next vacation to Sylvan Beach, we will stay here again.

Car: not necessary

Sylvan Beach is a cute, quaint, 'best of the old and new' waterfont village in upstate New York. As a waterfront home, our beach house enables you to bring and dock your own boat in a very protected area completely away from the sometimes rough lake. Travelers can also use our free kayaks, or rent a power pontoon boat from a nearby camp ground, to explore the adjacent Erie canal and beautiful Oneida Lake. It's entirely possible to travel the canal system all the way to the Hudson River, and onto NYC, a trip of over 200 miles on the water.

The village is perfect for fun seekers of all ages. Enjoy a beach front amusement park; miniature golf, ice cream parlors, the sandy beach with shallow swimming waters (great for kids!), numerous bars and restaurants within walking distance. Summer concerts, 'Bikes at the Beach', and numerous car shows, craft fairs, etc are also throughout the summer. World class golf, gaming and dining at the Turning Stone Resort are only 20 minutes away.

Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, miniature golf
