Beautiful spot.

Location is great. Sunset was absolutely beautiful.

The house worked well for our group, six adults and one child. Everything we needed was there. The owner was terrific.

Great place!!

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful place right by the lake. There was more then enough room for 6 adults and one child. The bedding is very comfortable and the house is well stocked with anything you might need for your stay. Being on the lake and having the kayaks was a major bonus. We also got to enjoy and camp fire and make some smores. When I did have any questions Mark was quick to respond and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this lake house to friends.

Great location for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this house. We were traveling as an extended family and had plenty of room. The loft set-up upstairs easily accommodated our four teenagers and provided them with their own bathroom.

There were two bedrooms on the first floor with a queen bed and a king bed. The kitchen downstairs was modern. The main floor had a full bathroom. The living room was open and airy. There was a large finished basement that had a single bed and a pull out sofa sleeper. There were also blow up air mattresses provided if needed. There was a washer and dryer in the basement. There is no air conditioning but the trees provided great shade. The deck outside had a large table and chairs and a swing. The walk down to the lake was steep (I believe I counted 75 steps or so) but it was well worth the hike. Mark (the owner) provided us with two kayaks, life vests and pool noodles. The deck below had two chairs, a bench and a sun umbrella.

I had a very easy and pleasant experience working with Mark from the inquiry process through our stay. I highly recommend this property and it's owner. The neighbors were friendly and very helpful.

About Mark

We purchased the land and built the lakehouse in 2006. We have 3 kids (4, 7, 10) that love coming here to swim. We live about 4.5 miles from the Lake House which makes it convenient to meet and greet our guests.

Mark purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Mark chose Skaneateles

I spent all my Summers in Skaneateles as a kid and decided it would be a great place to raise our family.
