Wonderful Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house to Rent!! This was the first time that me and my family visited Skaneateles Lake and it exceeded all of our expectations. The lake is a gem to say the least, and the water is crystal clear and refreshing. The huge plus about this house is that it is situated directly on the lake with a large beautiful deck and very easy lake access. We enjoyed using the grill and dinning with views of the lake during sunset. Spending time boating in the house's very nice large canoe and single person kayak was very enjoyable. There is a swimming platform just off the house which was very pleasant to swim to and jump off of, and the house has lots of floats to use too. I'm a fisherman and was very successful fishing off the dock and from the canoe catching small mouth bass. We also rented a party boat at the Skaneateles Marina which was a very good deal and half price on Monday's or Tuesdays. It's a great way to see a lot of the lake and beautiful homes surrounding it. The house is very comfortable with a nice kitchen that had everything you need to cook with. The living room is large with a TV that has all the cable channels, but we rarely used it because the lake provided so much entertainment. The beds and bedrooms were very comfortable also. Then there is the town. Skaneateles is a treasure with many great restaurants to choose from and surrounding wineries to visit and do tastings at. Don't miss Anyela's Vineyard, that is just a few miles down the road from the house. We also took a day trip to Niagara Falls which was a little under 3 hours away and very doable from the house. It was incredible to see!

If you want to experience a Fingerlake at it's best, Skaneateles Lake and this house is it! We had the best week ever!!

Very nice for people who love the outdoors and are physically fit. Wonderful scenery and good fishing.

Nice quiet town with good restaurants. Loved the Bass Pro Shop at Auburn.

Memorial Day

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at this wonderful cabin Memorial Day weekend. Had a great stay and everyone enjoyed it there. The cabin is very nicely furnished and was comfortable for us. The pictures on the site do not do the property justice with amazing views of the lake from the house. The weather was on the cool side during the first part of the weekend and we utilized the indoor electric fireplace for some heat. This worked fine but would not even be an issue if you are staying during the summer months. There is no AC, but there are fans available to get some air moving and keep the cabin cool. Lots of windows and the sliding glass door let in lots of light as well. We stressed over what to bring and ended up packing more than we actually needed. The bedrooms are simple but do have closet and dresser space if you are planning a longer stay. Two of the bedrooms have queen size beds and one has a set of bunks. All had bedding available though we brought our own. There are all manner of kitchen utensils, dinnerware, glasses, etc. available to use. The gas grill worked great and we used it each night of our stay and there was plenty of propane on hand.

The outside areas are the best part of the property and really added to our enjoyment. Being an avid fisherman, I spent much of my time doing exactly that. There is a nice dock to fish from and we caught several smallmouth and yellow perch right off the dock. My Dad caught a huge rainbow trout right off the dock as well. I think we were still early for really good fishing as we saw many more fish in the ultra-clear water than we were able to catch. The water temperature was still rather cold so once it warms up I have the feeling the fishing would be absolutely fantastic! (Bass Pro is 30 min. away in Auburn) There is also a three person canoe and a one person sit-in kayak available. There was no double paddle for the kayak which we could find so we used one of the canoe paddles which worked but an actual kayak paddle would have been much better especially if you want to take the canoe and kayak out at the same time. Life preservers are available with three adults and one child size. Other amenities which should be mentioned are the new washer and dryer, the ping pong table, the fire pit,(you should stop in Skaneateles and get some firewood) and board games, cards, and even some books for any rainy days you might have. I also suggest taking a day or two to visit the village of Skaneateles and surrounding area.

summer in sept

  • 4 of 5

Had a great week at the cottage with many types of weather including three summer like days to enjoy the kayak, and lounging on the beautiful deck, and a boat cruise. The ping pong table came in handy on a chillier day when relatives came out for a BBQ. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets can be enjoyed from the dock and porches. Took and easy drive to the Cayuga wine trail and also went golfing at the nearby course.

vacation rental

This vacation property exceeded our expectations! The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need and the view of the lake was fantastic. The owner provided us with a list of local restaurant recommendations. This is a home that I would rent again in the future.
