This completely renovated 1930's boathouse sits only steps away from the water in a wooded setting. It is a perfect getaway for a week or a weekend for two people.
Inquire about the Romantic Couples Week Package, which includes a couples massage in the comfort of the boathouse, at your convenience, and a bottle of the best of the Finger Lakes wines (also can be booked for weekends, when available).
A 20-25 minute drive North takes you to Auburn and Skaneateles, with their restaurants and shops. At the head of the lake is the Merry-Go-Round Theatre, which has performances of well-known broadway musicals all Summer.
The Cayuga and Seneca Wine Trails are 20 minutes to one hour away. The Finger Lakes Wineries produce some of the finest wines in the Country, and are noted for there fine rieslings.
The Glenbrook Boat House is located on a beautiful property on the west side of Owasco Lake. I was seeking a quiet, relaxing atmosphere and this charming little cottage was just what I hoped for. It was clean, comfortable and wonderfully relaxing. I awoke to the sound of birds chirping each morning and the only motorized sounds to be heard were the occasional hum of a passing motor boat on the lake. I'm glad that I booked my time at this rental and will be returning again as soon as I can schedule the time from work. That they accept well-behaved pets was the icing on the cake, as my Golden Retriever enjoyed the visit as much as I did.
The house is set on about 20 acres of woods complete with brook, small waterfall and loads of wildlife (no hunting). There is superb fishing on Owasco Lake.
The boathouse is located just minutes from Ithaca, NY, home to Cornell University and Ithaca College as well as many wonderful restaurants and shops, the Sciencenter and the famous Ithaca Farmer's Market.
Also minutes away are the wineries on the Eastern shore of Cayuga Lake and the beautiful college town of Aurora, home to Wells College, several outstanding restaurants and the world famous MacKenzie-Childs, with its tours and shops.
