Property Details

Updated: Feb 2, 2015
House, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 2 Sleeps

This completely renovated 1930's boathouse sits only steps away from the water in a wooded setting. It is a perfect getaway for a week or a weekend for two people. Or it can be booked together with the much larger main house (sleeps 10) when available (see #47954), for a perfect family reunion. A garden separates the boathouse from the main house.

Inquire about the Romantic Couples Week Package, which includes a couples massage in the comfort of the boathouse, at your convenience, and a bottle of the best of the Finger Lakes wines (also can be booked for weekends, when available).

Glenbrook Boat House

Moravia Owasco Lake


  • 5 of 5
The Glenbrook Boat House is located on a beautiful property on the west side of Owasco Lake. I was seeking a quiet, relaxing atmosphere and this charming little cottage was just what I hoped for. It was clean, comfortable and wonderfully relaxing. I awoke to the sound of birds chirping each morning and the only motorized sounds to be heard were the occasional hum of a passing motor boat on the lake. I'm glad that I booked my time at this rental and will be returning again as soon as I can schedule the time from work. That they accept well-behaved pets was the icing on the cake, as my Golden Retriever enjoyed the visit as much as I did.

This has been the most relaxing vacation we've had in years. The views are breathtaking from the sun rising in the morning and moon coming out at night. Our 2 dogs just loved it too. We kayaked almost every day. The beauty of nature was everywhere. We saw the bald eagle, great blue heron, belted kingfisher diving for his meal, and even a beaver swam under the dock 1 morning. It's a vacation to just sit back and watch nature happen all around you...We can only hope to return in the future...Thanks again to Skip, Nancy, Derek and Luga. PS. Hennie wants to thank Bo for coming around and playing with her too!! Arlene, Milt, Hennie & Soxx

This was a nice cozy place to relax in with 2 people. Freindly people. We were able to take our dog with us which is why we rented. Right on the water, you could here waves coming in. Beautiful sunrises. Satelite TV, & they had high speed wireless internet which was a nice surpise. Worked great. Would recommend this for any couple looking for a nice getaway.
