About Katie Carter - Property Manager

My name is Chris Yantch. I am a lifelong resident of Auburn and have great memories of growing up on beautiful Owasco Lake. I named Chantelle Marie after my daughters, as Chantelle and Marie are their middle names. The love of my daughters and Owasco Lake has inspired me to build this lakeside home and share it with others. I hope for this to be a place where many will make new memories with their family and friends, just as I have.

Katie Carter is Chantelle Marie Lakehouse and Celebration Hall's property manager. She has 15 years in the hospitality industry and loves helping people! She gets 5 stars for excellent customer service!

Katie Carter - Property Manager purchased this chateau / country house in 1998

Why Katie Carter - Property Manager chose Owasco Lake

The Chantelle Marie Lakehouse owns a unique and interesting history. Beginning its days as the Auburn Savings Bank located on Grant Avenue, the structure was acquired, dismantled and transported to be rebuilt in its current location by owner Christ Yantch. The integrity of the building still stands with original beams and woodwork.

Our mission at Chantelle Marie Lakehouse is to provide all of our guests with an atmosphere of tranquility. Our goal is to offer a truly unique environment where simple elegance and warm, comfortable hospitality are combined to create a truly memorable experience.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Chantelle Marie Celebration Hall! We have the perfect setting for your family and friends to gather and celebrate your special event. Our renovated barn with its rustic charm and relaxed surroundings sets the stage for a perfect celebration. The covered patio offers shelter and a beautiful view of the lake.

Our Celebration Hall is perfect for large events such as weddings. The natural surrounding that include an orchard, vineyard and large pond offer comfortable spaces and a special setting for your photographs. While celebrating with your family for your big event, stay right on the property at the Lakehouse!! How perfect!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Great lake house on a very nice lake accommodated our large family (seven adults and 2 children) very nicely. Four large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and king size beds provided us with very nice sleeping arrangements with privacy. Especially nice was the main level open floor plan which included seating for everyone during meals and very comfortable living room furniture where everyone could just sit and talk -- while the children played in the background. Simply put -- a very large comfortable lakehouse with plenty of room for everyone in our group.

Chantelle Marie Lakehouse FAQS Renting Boat - We have a Crest 25ft Pontoon avail. for rent. Please inquire. Also, the local marina is Owasco Marine. Beach - The water levels are high right now on Owasco lake so our "beach" actually is kinda small right now. I had a fire pit down there but its under water at the moment. There is a dock with lounge chairs, (3).. but I would bring some fold up camp chairs if you want to hang out down there. We have the 2 kayaks w/ paddles down by the water and a row boat. The house has 4 standard life vest and one child sized one. Swim - you can swim right off the water. The end of the dock is about 5 1/2 feet right now so I wouldn't dive. Its a stony shore. Water shoes are a good idea for zebra muscles and moss. Kitchen - Kitchen is fully equipped. We provide you detergent - laundry/dish, sponges, paper towels, cleaning supplies, trash bags, toilet paper and hand soap. You are responsible for all food. Towels - the house has mo

Fantastic Family Holiday Get Together Home with all the Amenities we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental home & Katie, the property manager, get 5 Stars plus. Our family was looking for a comfortable and spacious house. All of our expectations were met. A very relaxing and calm home for a family get together. Well furnished and tastefully decorated. Stepping inside you find yourself in the great room with a fabulous view of the lake and the opposing shoreline. The house is stunning and we are very pleased with the fact that the photos and description are true to what we saw advertised on Home Away. This house was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen is beautiful and completely equipped. Very comfortable mattresses in each bedroom. Twenty years of renting vacation homes; this is one of the best and looking forward to booking again in the near future! We applaud the property manager Katie for her very prompt responses to a few concerns our family encountered after we arrived. She went above and beyond immediately to resolve a cable problem in the theater room and a non-working TV on day one. And, Katie acted immediately to take care of our needs during a 3-hour power outage. Katie; you were very gracious and most helpful during our stay. Thank you so much for your warmth & hospitality! We have already recommended this rental property to family & friends.

We enjoyed our stay very much. We were very surprised to see a Christmas tree up; that extra step was very thoughtful & perfect for us, since we were gathering for our Holiday celebration. Most attendants were displeased with the TV's not working in the individual bedrooms; but I wasn't there to have tv in our bedroom & most other places do not offer that, so it did not bother me. Was a little surprised at the washing machine issues, only because we were asked to put a load of our towels in the machine. One thing that would have been more helpful in the kitchen was a timer. I know you have timers on your phone, but since I did most of the cooking, I am not a person that keeps her phone on her 24/7. One cooking episode failed due to no timer (my phone wasn't near me after I set the timer!). Having even an old fashioned seperate ticking timer with a twist dial would have been great!! If all goes well with health, we will definitely plan the same next year!! Thanks!!

Lovely house, extraordinarily well stocked - with beautiful kitchen, appliances and tools.

Worked very well for 8 adults and two children with occasional visitors during the day.

Owner/agent was impressively available by phone and text (for minor logistics issues)

Excellent location and plenty of room for four couples. The kitchen was truly amazing.

  • 4 of 5

This house and location was just perfect for our weeks stay in the Finger Lakes. Everything was as described on VRBO and we could not have been happier. We rented a boat and the dock worked out perfectly. The linens, towels and robes were so plush. The kitchen was so nicely appointed that we wanted for nothing. There were a few problems with bees that made their way into the house but other than that it was really an awesome week.

Beyond our expectations

  • 5 of 5

The manager of this property goes above and beyond to provide your every need before you even realize you need it...our family stayed at the property behind this A frame. It catered more to our specific needs as a family and the manager and owner were more than willing to accommodate. With this being our first lake house rental, we were not sure of what we would require. This property provided every single thing that we had lacked to bring....we wanted for nothing the entire trip. The property was exceptionally beautiful and inviting. Quiet. Clean. More than enough open space for our families to have privacy, yet cozy enough for us to gather around meals. The roof top allowed for us to lay back and watch shooting stars.....truly a vacation property we will long for every year:) The property was exceptional, but it's the people we met there that I will now call friends:)
