Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 12 Sleeps

Welcome to our 3 Bedroom summer cottage on beautiful Owasco Lake with 85 ft of private lakefront. The 1000sqft cottage has an open floor plan. Sliding glass door leads out to a large two tiered deck complete with a hot tub overlooking Owasco Lake. The deck has a glass dining table that seats six on one side of the deck and a cushioned seating area for 4. A picnic table on the side of the house provides extra seating. The lower level of the deck has a stainless gas grill and two deck chairs on one side, with a gate on the other side to step directly into the hot tub. Stairs leading down to the waterfront bring you to a 15X50 deck at the waters edge that has lounge chairs, table, plenty of seating and a refrigerator. 50ft of dock extending out into the lake has plenty of room for your boat or jetski. Or rent a boat from the marina about 3 miles down the lake. Use our 2 Kayaks or the canoe to tour the still lake waters of the morning.

The cottage is located on the east side of Owasco lake for clean water and beautiful sunsets. The location is perfect and close to everything. 40 minutes from Syracuse, 7 minutes from the town of Moravia, 15 minutes from Auburn, 20 minutes from Skaneateles. You can tour the beautiful Finger Lake wineries, hike the trails and beautiful waterfalls of Filmore Glen park. Stroll the quaint shops and restaurants in the village of Skaneateles, or head to the top of the lake for a broadway style show at the Merry Go Round theater in Emerson Park. So much to do in the area in a short driving distance.

The cottage is set on a half acre lot, so it has a large backyard to play just about any game you would like. A fire pit sits about 30 ft from the house and is perfect for those cool nights or making s'mores.

The cottage is set up with beds for 12 people, but the house is very comfortable with 6 adults and 4-6 kids. One bedroom has a queen bed. The other two bedrooms have a bunk bed and a double bed in each. The living area has a pull out queen sofa. Each bedroom has a window air conditioner. The whole cottage is heated. The kitchen, dining room and living room are all one big room and great for entertaining.

Main room has a 32 LCD tv on a articulating arm so the 205+ channels of Direct TV, or the WII game console, (bring your WII games) can be viewed from anywhere, but can be stowed out of the way if you just want to enjoy the view or peace and quiet. 5 disc cd/dvd changer has full surround sound, or use the speaker selector to use the ceiling or outdoor speakers. Ipod hookup is available both in the house and at the waters edge.

Two large ceiling fans keep the room very comfortable. The kitchen is fully stocked with appliances, utensils, plates, etc.

Beautiful home on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Hi John,

We had a great family vacation. Your property was perfect, and the grounds are beautiful. Your home was clean and had all the amenities one could ask for. Plus your neighbors were so kind and helpful with what is near by.

Also thank you for your kindness when we had trouble with the washing machine.

Thanks Dan

Stunning views, fabulous cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I honeymooned here for a week. The pictures don't do the cottage, the outdoor space and the views justice! We were so superbly pleased with the outdoor space! The deck was spacious and we spent as much time out there as possible! The hot tub was glorious and at times I didn't even want to read in it, I just wanted to soak in the beautiful views! Down on the lake we were so happy with the dock and all of the relaxing space. We spent hours fishing and napping down there! The inside of the cottage was great as well. The main room was very spacious. We only used 1 bedroom but we both said we could rent this house again and bring friends!

The village is about 10 minutes away and has essentials like a grocery store, gas, pizza shops, a deli, hardware store. We probably hit up every little store in the town! Auburn is only about 20 minutes away in a different direction but it's much larger and has tons of dining options! We'd go back to this spot in a heartbeat!

Incredible Views and Ameneties!

  • 4 of 5

If it's R&R you are after, this is the perfect rental cottage. Tucked away in a wooded setting, the cottage offers breathtaking views of the lake from multi-layered decks as well as from the great room and kitchen. It is updated, spacious and fully equipped. The three bedrooms offer tons of sleeping space, comfortable beds and huge closets! You will love the lower deck for sunning, swimming or just hanging out at night. All of this, a hot tub, and pet friendly! It truly was an enjoyable stay.

Perfect Anniversary Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here on Columbus Day weekend for our 9th Anniversary. Beautiful, serene, peaceful and very relaxing. My favorite activity was listening to the water lapping below us while enjoying the hot tub !! We will definitely come back.

A gem on Owasco ... A+++++++

  • 5 of 5

I really can not say enough good things about this property. We truly enjoyed staying here and the entire rental process was so easy and not a hassle at all. It is so comfortable and like a home away from home. Loved having our own dock for our boat and the view is priceless! We will return and highly reccomend it!
