About the property

Fab. house, upscale, 150 ft., level, sandy beachfront, 4 Bed.2 Bath plus loft

Enjoy a sweeping, breathtaking view of Owasco Lake from this large A-frame home with plenty of room to eat, drink and relax under the 25 ft. cathedral ceilings. This yr.-round home in a tranquil, affluent neighborhood is conveniently located on the desirable EAST side of Owasco Lake, 3 miles from Emerson Park, minutes from Skaneatelas Lake, world class spa( Mirbeau), and Finger Lakes' wineries. 150 plus ft., of this flat, sandy lakefront is just a skip and a jump from the lakeside deck.

You can enjoy jumping off the 100ft. private dock into the sandy waters and swim the Finger Lakes’ warmest, most “swimmable” lake; or navigate it with Kayaks (Two Kayaks and Life Preservers provided).

Fish off the dock or from the bass-stocked Brook Hollow outlet just a short walk down Brook Hollow Dr.

Overlooking the lake, there's plenty of outdoor space on the sprawling grounds to fire up the grill, have a bonfire, play football, enjoy a badminton game or just hang out under the old oak tree. From that vantage point, take in the panoramic view of Owasco Lake. This prime location makes for a dream vacation: minutes from Skaneatales Lake, a few miles from the private Skaneatales airport, within 3 miles of three golf courses, and only 13 miles from New York State wine country.

Enjoy the fully-stocked eat-in kitchen where you can seat six at the kitchen table, and three more at the counter. The adjacent dining room comfortably seats 8, and the Great Room with newer, over-sized couch, recliner and big easy chair(s) provide a comfy setting from which to view the lake.

There's a large first floor master bedroom (king-sized bed), with an adjoining bathroom plus a private bedroom/den with full-size futon.

A spiral staircase lifts you up to a 2nd floor loft (with 2 single beds) offering a spectacular view of the lake through two large windows. There are 2 additional bedrooms, each with a double bed, and 1 bathroom. The back bedroom has a balcony facing the front of the property.

In addition, there are hardwood floors throughout, washer/dryer, CENTRAL AIR & HEAT, WIFI internet access/expanded cable, 3 TV(s).

Enjoy this premiere neighborhood and its unsurpassed beauty tucked away on a private road -- perfect for biking, walking or just plain relaxing. Retreat to the tranquility of the Finger Lakes in this classic setting, where your family will surely enjoy the open space, mature plantings, and sandy, private beach-front home. Fabulous in the summer for swimming, boating, skiing, fishing, golfing, wind-surfing; glorious in the fall for the colorful foliage and autumn harvest at the wineries; spellbinding in the winter with the snowy landscape and icy waters -- perfect for ice fishing and cross country skiing. Appreciate nature's serenity in this easily accessible, well appointed home and enjoy all that the Finger Lakes has to offer no matter what season of the year you book your dream vacation. Rest assured, you will have a peaceful stay in this safe, beautiful, bucolic community.

Why Michelle Iaia chose Owasco Lake

This was THE FIRST A-FRAME to be built on Owasco Lake. It's open floor plan is perfect for family gatherings due to it's eat in-kitchen and Dining room. Oversized couches and chairs in the great room make for comfortable, leisurely living. View the 150 feet of lakefront from the kitchen, dining room, great room, and the loft. Also the lakeside deck offers great views as well as the ability to see what the kids are doing at the beach which is just a stone's throw away.

What makes this house unique

First floor master bedroom, adjoining master bath, plus private bedroom/den w/ futon, wireless. Fully stocked kitchen, heat/central air, washer/dryer, dishwasher/garbage disposal.

The house is unique w/ open floor plan, first floor master bedroom and adjoining large bathroom; across the hall is a private bedroom/den with queen-sized futon.

The location is the very best on Owasco Lake. One of the few sandy beaches, it's located on a sandy, warm cove where the water is generally calm even when the lake is rough.

Great for kids and novice swimmers due to the water's gradual decline so they can swim out far in the shallow water.

What the Finger Lakes region is all about...

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 and this house was more space than we could have used. You enter into a huge great room under the A frame that encompasses the living room, dining room, and kitchen. A much larger family could rent this house and really feel comfortable with all the different spaces. The great room looks out onto an expansive lawn and lake frontage. The weather was hot over Memorial Day weekend and the kids loved playing in the restorative waters of Owasco Lake. We'll be back again.

Wonderful location but needs some work

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I rented this property for a week in September and while the location was absolutely beautiful and the owners were very accommodating and helpful, we felt the furniture and furnishings were very outdated/worn and that the house needed a good deep cleaning. It was disappointing because it was such an idyllic setting and a wonderful week of beautiful fall weather. We did enjoy the gorgeous lakefront setting, two kayaks provided by the owners and all that the area has to offer.

Wonderful lakefront home in the Finger Lakes region

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at Michelle's house along the Owasco Lake shore, eastern side, for a long weekend with my sisters. The house was clean, well-equipped, and very comfortable, with a beautiful view of the lake from the living room, dining room, and kitchen. It was mid-October and in the mid 50s - 60s with night temperatures in the 40s, so we did not consider swimming. But we had a wonderful time sitting by the lake. Bedrooms and bathrooms were all comfortable and homey. Thanks to Michelle and her siblings for sharing their family home as a rental.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from our fourth time staying at this home. The house is always very clean when we arrive. Plenty of parking, large flat yard, sandy beach with easy access into the water (no stairs or large hills to the beach). It has plenty of room for nine people and a very large kitchen and eating areas. The house is located in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood and close to grocery stores, restaurants, wineries and hiking. The owner responds promptly to all inquiries. We are already talking about next year!

Situated in a cove, the lake is usually warm, always sandy and generally safe for young swimmers due to its gradual decline. Positioned on the desirable east side of Owasco Lake, the home is located in an affluent, year-round neighborhood known as BROOK Hollow. Enjoy the dock and two kayaks. During cool nights, a fire pit is available for roasting marshmallows and playing guitar. The flat, grassy lake-front yard is ideal for recreational activities such as badminton, kickball, whiffle ball, or football. All athletic equipment is available for renters. The home features an outdoor grill along with ample patio/outdoor seating.

Minutes from Skaneateles, world-class spa Mirbeau, and Finger Lakes vineyards. 30 minute drive from state parks Watkins Glen and Filmore Glen.

Surrounded by numerous public golf courses and tennis courts.

The house is situated on a private road perfect for biking, walking, roller skating, and fishing at the Brook Hollow Outlet.

Owasco Lake is richly stocked with fresh water fish.
