Guestbook comments from the owner

Left on 03/02/2014 for a stay in February 2014

I rented this house for my sister's bachelorette weekend getaway and I couldn't be happier! There was more than enough room for all 9 of us to sleep comfortably and the many bathrooms made it easy for all of the girls to get ready in the morning. The house was clean and homey with a dining room big enough to seat everyone for dinner. We enjoyed having full use of the kitchen which was stocked with plenty of modern appliances that made it easy to prepare meals.

The house is in a great location that made it easy for us to spend the day checking out local wineries and a ten minute cab ride from auburn where we went out for an evening of dinner and drinks. I am looking forward to the next occasion where I am able to book the rental again!

Enjoyed staying at the Osprey Manor! It was a lovely historical home! We had a party of 8 people and it was more than large enough to accommodate us! It was also in a great location to easily access a lot of local wineries !

I have been renting vacation houses for 20 years and let me just say tis one takes the cake. The has is beautiful mix of modern with old world charm. We had a wonderful stay with a large group. The owner provides you with all the comforts so nothing to do but unpack your clothes. The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. It was like falling into a large pillow ever night. There were simple nice touches too. The wine upon arrival and the pastries in the morning just sweet. A++++++++

Fabulous property

Don't miss the chance to book this wonderful home for your vacation. We just spent a week (6/29/14) there with 7 adults and 2 small children and it was perfect. So much space, beautifully updated, great grounds for lawn games, swing set, everything you could think of in the kitchen/ pantry/bedrooms. Convenient to hikes, wineries and other day trips inc beautiful state parks with beaches (the little beach that the house has access to is a bit disappointing BUT that is NO reflection on this property).
The owners are delightful to do business with. Highly recommend.

Cayuga Cayuga Lake

Magnificent house and view of the lake!

  • 5 of 5
This vacation home is a stately old hillside house that welcomes you as soon as you walk through the door and makes you feel like you lived there before. It has all of the comforts of a well furnished home and then some. We have never visited such a well equipped vacation home before. The interior is magnificent, without losing any of the charm of a farmhouse. We were there for a family Christmas reunion and it was perfect for that. The views of the lake are marvelous even though it was perhaps the least scenic time of the year, no summer greenery, autumn foliage or soft blanket of snow but you could still gaze over the lake contented in another world.

The hosts were much more than hospitable. We were welcomed with an intimate antipasto buffet and wine. They even set up a Christmas tree with lights as we had requested which we then decorated as a family. The kitchen was equipped with everything a chef could have desired including spices and oils as well as fine antique china.The living room ware cozy with a beautiful fireplace, perfect for spending a lazy evening with a good book, or a comfortable mix of people. Each room was filled with surprise decorative touches and it was really hard to leave a place that felt like we belonged. It was truly a wonderful Christmas away from home.

From the Owner

Paul and Laura fell in love with this property when they first saw it on a Sunday evening during the Spring of 2013. They decided to rename the property Osprey Manor because a beautiful Osprey flew over as they decided to acquire the property. The elegance and history of the property revealed itself over the following months as the couple began to bring the property to its current beauty.
