vacation rental description

Now booking spring, summer, fall of 2014 by week, month, or season

This lovely lakefront cottage is on the east (preferred) side of Owasco Lake
offers a panoramic view of the lake and fantastic sunsets. The
Cottage has been completely remodeled and has a covered deck
overlooking the water, a living room/dining room/kitchen area (all
one open room), 2 bedrooms, and a modern bathroom with shower. The
master bedroom has a queen bed and there is a trundle bed (two twins)
in the second bedroom.
This property is built into a hillside and has three levels: The
ground level consists of a boathouse, a paver brick patio, 90+ feet
of beachfront, and large dock. Above the boathouse, on the second
level, is the rental cottage. This cottage has a side entry door
leading up to the parking area, a front door which opens onto the
covered wraparound porch, and a third door off the kitchen leading
down to the beach. (The cottage seems somewhat like a houseboat due
to its location just above the water's edge.) Above the rental
cottage, on the third level, is a large deck and in back of this
deck, a second cottage which is summer home to a Florida "Snow Bird."
The two residences are completely separate and are not visible to
each other due to the design of the decks and roof lines. (The
cottages actually have more privacy than dwellings with close
neighbors on each side. The neighboring cottage on the south side
sits up on a hill by the roadway out of sight, and the cottage to the
north sits back from the lake and is only occupied on weekends.) The
area is surrounded by woods waiting to be explored and there is a
private roadway behind the cottages, perfect for taking daily walks,
or hiking to nearby Indian Cove which is home to ball fields, swing
sets, and large play area.
This cottage is an ideal location for couples who dream of spending
their summer months on the water but don't want the expense and
upkeep involved in owning a second home.
TESTIMONIALS:
"You have a pleasantly serene spot here on a beautiful lake..."
"We loved it here! What a wonderful week...."
"You are blessed with this special place..."

traveler reviews for this owasco lake cottage rental

Fantastic

Review submitted: August 23, 2014   Date of arrival: July 6, 2014

We had a wonderful 10 days here and the owner (Elaine) could not have been a more congenial
and thoughtful hostess. The grounds are landscaped beautifully and the lake view from the deck was fantastic. The rental cottage is actually below the owner’s extended deck. We only saw her when we initiated it and actually would not have minded seeing her more often, as she is an extremely nice person (as was her sister whom we met later). She was very concerned that we had everything we needed. For instance, we had a problem operating an older can opener (found out later it was because we did not know how to use it) and within minutes she came downstairs with a new one. We had visitors and she offered to move her car so their cars could park in her driveway.

The cottage was very comfortable, however it is best suited for two adults as you do have to pass through the 2nd bedroom to get to the bathroom. It might be good for one or two very small children who would not be bothered by this .

The furnishings are ok, the queen bed was comfortable (even though we are used to a king) and overall, it was very clean. Yes, you can get a few bugs but this is expected in this type of environment-it was not because the place was not clean. We took down a spider web by one of the doors just before going to bed and it was back when I got up the next morning.

With the addition of a few improvements, this would be an outstanding vacation rental which could double in price what she is now charging.

Thank you Elaine for a nice memory!!

Owners response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay in my rental cottage on beautiful Owasco Lake and was saddened when you had to leave. You folks are the type of tenants every landlord dreams of having! I'm so happy to know that you had an enjoyable and memorable time here and hope to see you again in the future.
Sincerely,
Elaine

Disappointed

Review submitted: July 7, 2014   Date of arrival: June 29, 2014

The property itself was described inaccurately as it is really the downstairs of the owner's home, not a separate dwelling space. The door to this camp leads into the smaller bedroom and the bathroom is also located off the smaller bedroom, causing a lot of traffic through that area. If you need the restroom in the night you have to walk through a sleeping person's bedroom.
It is clean and orderly with the exception of the many artificial plants that are full of dust and spider webs. When we pulled out the trundle bed there was some kind of plant debris in the mattress and we chose not to use it. Also a note of caution- that bed frame is metal and the mattress is too small so some bumps and bruises were had.
The most disappointing part was that on the holiday weekend the owner chose to have her family visit bringing no fewer than 6 cars and leaving us nowhere to park and they overtook the beach front and even came onto the deck that was "ours." This continued for the weekend and we even experienced sitting on the deck and watching cigarette butts being thrown down over her balcony in front of us! I have no issues with her wanting to use her place for the holiday with her family, but would recommend she simply not rent it if that is her plan.

Owners response: I am so very sorry to read that someone was disappointed and will attempt to address all the concerns mentioned in the above review.
The property was not described inaccurately and definitely is not the downstairs of the owner's home. The rental cottage is completely separate from the main dwelling. The only way to enter the rental cottage is to go outside, go around to the side of the main cottage, and down steps/sidewalk...as shown in pictures as well as explained in the description.
Yes, the side entry door (the door closest to the parking area) leads to the second bedroom and, yes, the bathroom is at the back of the rental which is very handy when coming up from the beach. However, the location of the bathroom necessitates going through the second bedroom to enter. Generally, this does not present a problem since the cottage is primarily rented to couples and, if there is someone occupying the second bedroom, it's usually a child.
I'm sorry there was something on the bottom trundle bed when it was rolled it out. My cleaning lady does a fantastic job getting the cottage prepared for incoming guests and obviously didn't pull the bed out since it hadn't been used as yet this season. The frame of the trundle bed is most definitely metal and is the smallest unit I could find to sleep two persons in a rather small room. (Please see picture of white bedroom on this web site.) Again, I wish to point out that there are usually children occupying that room.
I do apologize for any spider webs on the plants. Living on the lake in such close proximity to the water seems to equate to dealing with spider webs. They can be knocked down one day and reappear the next. We "lake people" just deal with it because we love being on the water.
We have a very large black top parking area, one space is allotted for renters, and that one space is ALWAYS left open.
I am truly troubled by this negative review as I thought I had done everything in my power to make certain these renters enjoyed their lake experience.
The couple (from Florida) who are currently in the rental cottage are loving it. They stop in to ask if I need anything when they are going to town and even brought up a bowl of fresh strawberries for me this evening.
Sadly, it seems some people are difficult to please.
