Homer House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Little York Lake is about 105 acres, over a mile long with excellent fishing. Each spring they stock it with over 5000 trout and it has been know to have 20 inch bass caught from the shoreline. Water is clear with areas of vegetation growing. Motor boats allowed, launching area by the pavillion. The house is on the canal by the dam where you can hear waterfalls, very quiet area but minutes to main lake.

Beautiful view from dining room and living room, large fireplace in living room for cool nights. Excellent fishing from dock, paddle boat available. Close to many attractions including historic Homer Village, Cortland Repertory Theatre, Dwyer Memorial Park with basketball court and many trails for hiking or biking.

Close to Cayuga wine trails, Skaneateles, and Ithaca for excellent restaurants or shopping. There's much to do or just relax and enjoy the peaceful, quiet area, listen to the waterfall and watch the ducks.

Excellent place for vacationing with children, swim off dock, fish, ride bikes on dead-end street. Movies, bowling, close by for those occasional rainy days. Golf, movies, theatre, something for everyone. Bring your boat or enjoy paddle boat available

Feel free to write or call for additional pictures or information. Read the reviews of the many satisfied and repeat renters from the last few years.

About Jacqueline Stachura

I've been renting my properties for the past 9 years, met many interesting people and acquired new friends. I furnish my houses and condos as though I personally live there and my renters are pleased to find a home away from home. I use my rental income to offset expenses and upgrade my properties, I recently put on a beautiful new dock on my Little York Lake house. Always willing to listen to the needs of my clients and hear suggestions. Important to me that everyone has a great vacation that they well deserve.

Jacqueline Stachura purchased this house in 2003

Why Jacqueline Stachura chose New York

I fell in love with the quiet, serenity of the lake and the view from the living room. Then I met the people in the area and I was sold.

What makes this house unique

Peace, quiet and beautiful view of the lake.

Cute place right on the canal to the lake. Easy dock access to the water. Had nice campfires out back and the neighbors were very nice as well.

This cottage on Little York Lake exceeded our expectations!

Close to everything the Finger Lakes and the Seven Valleys has to offer.

Enjoy your stay, we sure did!

Great location by the lake

  • 4 of 5

Nice location with direct access to the lake. Good facilities in the house which is much bigger inside than it appears from the photo. Plenty to do in the area if you want to visit the lakes in the region and easy access to towns like Ithaca and Syracuse. We were there during a very hot spell and would have been useful to have an extra couple of fans to keep cool at night but otherwise very pleased and would happily visit again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Sorry about the heat, I would have extra fans bought over if you would have contacted me. I will have extra fans available next time. Glad you enjoyed your visit.

Great summer getaway

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at the property on Little York Lake

We were very pleased with the accommodations

Well stocked maybe too many dishes

All linens clean

After initial arrival with no instructions we figured out basic tv

Lots to do in area

Located centrally to many activities

Homeowner needs to leave better instructions on how to run things and what is expected from renters

Overall great experience

A great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We will definitely book here again, a cute little place with a surprising amount of space! The home was clean and comfortable. The large yard and lake view were perfect. We loved the paddle boat! The owner was very accommodating and quick to answer email questions and concerns. One suggestion mentioned in other reviews that we agree with is the addition of a ladder off the dock. We had a few scraped stomachs as I tried lifting my kids from the water. Also, some property descriptions were inaccurate (no Netflix or wireless internet). However, Little York Lake provided all the entertainment we needed! Bring a lawn chair and enjoy the view! The nearby village of Homer was a wonderful destination, full of historic charm, delicious restaurants and wonderful people!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your visit. We will put a ladder on the dock ASAP and appreciate your input. There is Internet but not wi fi, however I will also get a router in the near future. We are constantly doing upgrades and take suggestions seriously. Ladder is on the dock and we have a new Smart TV with wifi. There is wi fi, a smart TV and a ladder to get out of lake now.

Wow! What an amazing view from a gorgeous home. I will definitely book here again. Neighborhood is great and neighbors are friendly. Chipmunks, bunnies, geese and fish are seen daily. Home is spacious and in great shape. A nice home away from home. 5 stars all the way.
