We love the lake! Auburn and the Finger Lakes offer quaint villages, wineries, restaurants, live theater, historic sites - friendly people in a location with year-round beauty and a variety of activities for everyone
Travelers will enjoy a tranquil setting on the east side of Owasco Lake - 5 minutes from Auburn and 15 minutes from Skaneateles - close to wineries and a variety of services and activities
The carriage house was lovely - very spacious and had everything we could have needed for our romantic weekend getaway. Judy was extremely helpful and accommodating - we had a great stay - we only wish we lived closer and could visit more. The property was gorgeous and I was stunned at how crystal clear the lake was. We look forward to returning when we can!
We had a great time in the cottage apartment! Thank you Judy for providing us with such a cozy stay by the beautiful lake!
We had a wonderful stay. The apartment was just as pictured - spacious, and very clean and comfy. Every small detail was perfect - from more than enough plush towels, to a well equipped kitchen, and brochures for local places. Judy was a delightful host, showing us around the property and answering questions about the local area. It's a beautiful spot on the lake and there's a lovely seating area at the water's edge. I just wish we had more time to sit. Hoping to be able to stay longer the next time we visit the area.
Also, we loved wandering around nearby Skaneateles (town at the north end of the next lake over) and had great meals at the restaurants Gilda's, and Moro's Kitchen. And a hike through Watkins Glen was worth the drive for stunning waterfalls - and a spot at the top to buy local Purity ice cream, or sit and have a beer.
The carriage house is absolutely adorable. We stayed for a week. The location is quiet and beautiful with easy access to a lot of places for adventure: wineries, creameries, restaurants, performing arts, recreational activities and many others. The fishing is superb. Owasco Marina rents boats for the day at very reasonable rates in order to get out there to the superior fishing spots. Plan to spend a day touring Cayuga Lake, which is a short drive with many sights to see. If you like the outdoors, don't miss Taughannock and Treman State Parks. Make sure you bring both your hiking shoes and your water shoes and plan to spend all day at each park. Thank you so much for making for us feel right at home with your warm personality. We will be back next year!
A perfect place to stay for a weekend spent exploring the Finger Lakes region. Judy could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The apartment was very clean and equipped with everything you might need. We felt at home right away and plan to stay there again on a future visit.
We had the honor of being the first to stay in the Carriage House at the Lakeside Inn, and were quite happy with our experience. Be aware that The carriage house does not come with breakfast, at least currently, but it does come with a full kitchen. This made for a relaxing morning, as we took our time, enjoying our coffee and breakfast before setting out. Along with biking there is a great disc golf course right around the corner, a playhouse, and of course the lake. Our hosts were very helpful in helping us find our way around and in working out the particulars for our stay.
