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, but no heat. 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.

Incredible Views and Ameneties!
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
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+++++++
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!
We have stayed at the cottage on two occasions during different seasons. Both times were great and the cottage was perfect. The cottage is exactly as described. It is very comfortable - inside and outside. It has a clean, up-to-date kitchen and is well stocked with everything you need. The living room is beautiful in the mornings - full of light with a great view of the lake. The evenings are quiet and peaceful. Now for the outside......the upper deck is great with lots of places to watch the sun set with a gas grill for steaks and burgers. The hot tub is a major plus - very relaxing after all of the fun you will have in and around the lake. The lower deck/dock is very sunny and the canoe and kayaks are tons of fun. It is difficult to leave but if you must...the cottage is close to some really tasty restaurants and cute shops in the town of Skaneatles.
The cottage was true to its word on the description that it gave on the internet. The kitchen was well equipped, all appliances worked well. It was great having a dishwasher. If you're looking for a relaxing vacation, this would be it. There are state parks close by with waterfalls and hiking trails. In the town of Moravia there's a department store family owned....not a big box store..that was neat to go through....you don't see stores like that these days and there is also a nice ice cream place and pizza place that has really good pizza. The cottage was clean and inviting and the location is centralized so you can go to the larger towns with a not too far of drive. It's an easy drive over to the winery routes (Varicks - which is listed Cobblestone on the maps is really good!) The cottage has a nice area for parking and we really enjoyed the deck area (bi-level) Plenty of outdoor furniture to sit on. Great stereo system, speakers inside and outside. There's also one when you walk downstairs to the lake. This is a great location whether you go as a couple or a group. Beds are comfortable and the cottage has plenty of room. For families with small kids, there's a large yard area that they have plenty of room to play. If you're a walker, you can take a good walk from the cabin to the main road and if early eve or morning you'll see deer and bunnies along the way. We didn't meet the owners but they left a phone number that we could reach them if needed. I would certainly recommend this to friends and family.
Relaxing Getaway on the Lake!
This vacation rental is highly recommended for a family that is ready for fun, activity and lots of relaxation! We had so much fun down at the lakeside deck using the kayaks, listening to our iPod on the dockside speaker system, fishing and floating! Our two young girls loved jumping off of the end of the dock when it got super hot. We also loved the view and using the hot tub on the upper deck.
If you are looking for a vacation on the lake, in an area that is not too overcrowded....this is a great place for you! The owner was very helpful and accommodating! Highly recommended!
