About Holly Geary

This is our family cottage. My sister and I manage this property for the family. We have been renting it for the last two years when the family is not using it. My husband and I have a cottage next door.

Holly Geary purchased this house in 1997

Why Holly Geary chose Interlaken

We have been on Holton Beach for the last 50 years. We love the lake because we sail, kayak and canoe. The lake is generally quiet (not alot of motor boat traffic)

What makes this house unique

Ithaca and the parks are 15-20 minutes from our cottage. There are many wineries, distilleries and cider mills in the areas. At the top of our road is the Cayuga Creamery which makes the best homemade ice cream in New York State.

Beautiful lakeside retreat!!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our wine weekend getaway and stay at the Holton beach House! Our group of ten women were comfortable in the home and in the spacious bedrooms. The location and setting are perfect for relaxing at the house or using it as home base for touring around the area. The house is clean and the owners are very responsive. Thanks for another memorable weekend!!!

My friends and I had an incredible experience staying at this beautiful home on the lake. The house was clean and very spacious. We spent the weekend at the wineries just down the road and took in the great view from the dock. I would absolutely stay here again!

Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for any age: A first floor bedroom with an amazing view to three bedrooms upstairs with a lovely balcony to watch the sunrise. My mom of 83 and my son of 10 were extremely happy in this home. My three sisters and I enjoyed yoga on the deck and our husbands and sons enjoyed fishing and boating. The house was clean and the bedding was beautiful. The house has an open concept which lets the air move free and the memories flow. Our experience was positively affected by the wonderfulness of this home.
