A cozy vintage cottage !

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I had a great time at this lakefront cottage. It was airy, spacious and very accommodating to many of our needs. The space was very comfortable,clean and very functional. The plum tree, water toys,fire pit complete the great outdoor experience of up close and personal with nature. I highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for relaxation ,peace and tranquility. Last,my dog Bachie loved the spacious grass to run and play.

Beautiful Home, made wonderful memories

  • 5 of 5

Frank and Ann Marie were wonderful hosts. They brought over information about the meteor shower so we could look for them. The home is lovely, and all redone in knotty pine. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything we could ever want to cook with. 5 out of 5 stars says it all. Easy boat access down the road. Parking for guests or family for dinner. Everything was clean and bright. Loved the outdoor fridge for more food or easy access to drinks while sitting by the large fire pit. Thank you Frank and Ann Marie, for sharing a week with us.

Great Week at Camp Onondaga

  • 5 of 5

… Just returned from an excellent week's stay on beautiful Lake Cayuga in New York. Our cottage, a restored historic cabin named "Camp Onondaga," was located right on the lake with its own dock. My wife and son enjoyed the canoe and paddle and row boats provided by our gracious hosts Frank and Ann Marie. The cottage had beautiful wood floors and walls plus an upstairs loft with a small deck that provided a wonderful western view of the lake, especially at sunset. The front yard was spacious and our dog Zoe, leashed to a rope around a tree, spent many hours sniffing the lake air as we played games on the lawn. The site, located on the northeastern shore of Lake Cayuga, was centrally located for our many day trips to wineries, Lake Seneca, Niagara Falls, and the historic nearby towns of Auburn and Skaneateles. Ann Marie suggested we attend the cherry festival on the other side of the lake where we picked our own cherries. The cottage was very clean with nice furnishings and all the supplies a family would need. Thank you Frank and Ann Marie for a wonderful Finger Lakes family vacation!
