We had a great time staying here and taking advantage of this beautiful lake and house.

  • 5 of 5

Our weeks stay at Rhonda and David’s lake house in De Ruyter NY was absolutely wonderful. This is a large house with three very large bedrooms right on De Ruyter Lake, in De Ruyter New York. The house is beautiful and the lake which is right off the back yard is also beautiful and clean. The house has its own private dock so you can bring a ski boat if you have one. The water is shallow so it would probably not accommodate a large boat. There are also two kayaks for you to use. Rhonda and Dave allow dogs as long as they are well behaved. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a separate bathroom for each bedroom and a laundry. There is also a separate dining room with a table and extra leaves that was large enough for all of us to fit around.

This area of NY is very pretty farm country with rolling hills, lakes, lots of trees and open farm land. Very peaceful. There is a market close by.

There were seven of us and two dogs that stayed here very comfortably. Please note that there is one bedroom on each level of the house. You will need to clime stares if you stay here. The only improvement that I can suggest would be to have one bedroom with twin beds. Currently all bedrooms have a queen or king bed. Sometimes guests are not conducive to sleeping in the same bed.

I would love to stay here again and would recommend to friends looking for a lake house in a quiet area.

Owner's Response: Dear Bruce and Family, we are so pleased you enjoyed your family vacation and the dogs had a good time too ! Just to point out, we do have a second Full Size Bed in the Top Floor Suite overlooking the Lake, in addition to the King Bed. It folds as a couch and opens up in seconds to a very comfortable Full Double Bed with a 10 inch mattress. Its fine for adults or kids. We do appreciate that on occasions it is necessary to have separate beds and that's why we purchased the additional bed two years ago. Thank you sincerely for booking with us and please consider us in your future plans. We would love to welcome you again to this beautiful area and lake. Very Best Regards, David and Rhonda

Beautiful Property

  • 4 of 5

This home is beautiful. The kitchen was well stocked, not like some rental homes we have been in before. The set-up provides lots of privacy with large bedrooms and private baths on each level. The deck and backyard were a terrific place to enjoy the peace and quiet of this lake. I was glad the owner provided kayaks as it was a good way to access the lake. The owners are very welcoming and available should you have any needs or problems occur. We had none.

My only disappointment is that is the grasses that have invaded this lake make swimming almost impossible. You can wade out a ways and the beach is great for little ones but if you are a swimmer you will have to get out to the middle of the lake to enjoy a good swim.

Owner's Response: Dear Christine, thank you so much for your very nice compliments of our Lake Home. We are so pleased you enjoyed your family vacation. We do our very best to present the home as turnkey ready and provide everything you will be likely to need, as we travel ourselves to vacation rentals and try to reflect that in our presentation and provide real luxury for our guests. The kayaks have proved to be very popular indeed. Almost every guest used them extensively during their stays with us over the past three years. We would like to address the lake grass that is on the shoreline of almost every lake in the region and probably NY State. Fortunately our peninsular one acre of manicured grounds extends out some 80 feet into the lake, therefore avoids nearly all of the shoreline grass that can appear mid summer on the lake bed in shallow water only and either side but not in front of us. Thats why we built here !! its a perfect and unique location. For safety reasons we would not advise guests to swim out to the middle of the lake at any time. Firstly, it is very deep and secondly our lake is very popular with jet skis, pontoon boats and ski boats, some of which travel at high speed when pulling slalom skiers. There is a strictly enforced distance limit that boaters must not encroach because of these safety concerns. As our guests enter the water, the depth is ankle deep and then waist deep after 30 feet or so. This is well within the safety limit. It is certainly very refreshing and safe for children as this is pure mountain water of the finest quality. Many residents get their water supply directly from the lake. I am a former British Junior Silver Medalist and really like to swim, so I head to the YMCA where the public is welcome any time with a visitor pass. Once again, it was a pleasure welcoming you to our Lake Estate and hope you will come back again. Very best regards, David and Rhonda.

Perfect vacation..Beautiful house and Beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Looking to get away from your hectic life and enjoy a relaxing vacation, this is the place for you. This is a modern house perfectly situated at the south end of Deruyter Lake. You can simply sit back and enjoy the beauty of the lake, from either the spacious deck behind the house or from around the fire pit located near the water. You also enjoy the view from either of the two master bedrooms. If you are more energetic, the house comes with two kayaks that we used daily for leisurely trips around the lake, sometimes in the morning and sometimes at night. Even my 6 year old granddaughter learned to kayak and joined me on a cruise around the lake. We also brought our bicycles with us and, since there is practically no traffic on the country roads in the area, we enjoyed several rides through the beautiful countryside.

The owners could not have been more accommodating, greeting us upon arrival and giving us a thorough tour of the property. Then, if we had any questions during the week, our emails were always quickly answered.

Perfect in every way !!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at David and Ronda's lovely abode by the lake on Memorial Day weekend. The house is large, comfortable and extra-ordinarily well maintained. Setting by the lake with kayaks, floats, barbecue, bonfire and such gracious hosts made it a perfect vacation. Thanks for having us :)

Weekend Lake getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place. If you are looking for a peaceful retreat on a lake kayaking and grilling out it is the best. If you are looking for a place to blast music and do keg stands it is not. My dog loved it. The geese were a little much ahaha but it was a wonderful time.

INCREDIBLE!

  • 5 of 5

"Incredible" is only one of many complimentary and gratifying adjectives we would use to describe this extraordinary lakeside property! The interior design of both the main house and the attached Guest Cottage is as attractive as its exterior with many more creative touches than we could have imagined. It's interestingly and eclectically furnished, is spacious, yet warm and inviting with breathtaking views of lovely DeRuyter Lake from almost every room. Located at the southern end of the lake on a mini peninsula, we were able to enjoy both sunrises and sunsets and although there are houses within view, it seemed like a definite "private escape" for our family of eight. The adults and children (two twelve year olds and a 16 year old) all appreciated the ease in putting the kayaks into the water with interesting areas to discover on the water. The large expanse of lawn allowed for much fun for a variety of games enjoyed by both adults and children and the excellent fishing was a surprise to all. The fish were plentiful, with more actually being caught from the lawn opposite the dock side. The evenings were fun with firewood and starters provided, for small bonfires and enjoyable S'Mores creations. Walks along the lakeside, about a mile and a half round trip, and shorter, five to 10 minute walks, to the nearby General Store for bait and "speciality"bottled sodas were fun for the kids. With the exception of two rainy evenings, most of our meals were enjoyed on the large deck. The easy to operate gas grill on the deck was ample for a large amount of food and with the exception of only one meal, most of our dinners were prepared there. Kitchens in both houses were just the right size for easy food preps and again with spectacular lake views. On our way there, my husband and I spent some time in Cazenovia at the charming farm market on Main Street where we purchased some homemade baked goods, enjoyed a delicious late breakfast at an interesting diner/restaurant across the street. We also did some last minute shopping at a very nice Tops Market five minutes from Cazenovia's "downtown" which is only 13 Miles north of the lake. Additionally, we found the Big M grocery store, about four miles from the lake, to be more than adequate for groceries and the Syracuse newspaper, available on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday. Finally, enough cannot be said for the gracious and kind owners, Rhonda & David who were never intrusive, but always available. Again...INCREDIBLE!
