Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps
We are so pleased to offer you this beautiful, newly renovated
lakeside cottage with lake rights and views of Oneida Lake! We have made every
effort to allow all visitors to feel completely at home! The handicap
accessible house is just steps away from a sandy beach (a rarity on Oneida
Lake), gorgeous sunsets over the water, and is in a quiet setting-- all within
10 minutes of Turning Stone Casino, Sylvan Beach, the Boxing Hall of Fame and
the town of Canastota (grocery store, shops and restaurants). Our property is
newly renovated and has all the amenities. This bright, two bedroom cottage with
an open floor plan has a spacious kitchen, dining room, and living room, 1 ½ baths,
and an enclosed front porch. It boasts easy access (120 ft. away) to a sandy beach,
ideal for swimming, sunbathing, and soaking up incredible sunsets every night. There
is a very gradual increase in depth of water from the shoreline, and the bottom
of the lake is soft and sandy, making swimming conditions incredibly safe and
optimal for children and pets. The wooden deck and concrete patio behind the
house are ideal for campfires around the fire pit, making for a casual evening of
fun after a day in the sun.
*Non-Smoking, pet-friendly cottage*
Should you decide to bring your furry friend along, please
be considerate of the neighborhood and keep your dog leashed!

Home away from home.
This is our second year renting here and as expected it was everything we had hoped for. The beach is beautiful, with quiet and serene sunsets at night, and the lake offers a wonderful sandy bottom that makes it easy to wade out and swim. We have a 15 month old who was able to safely play on the beach and splash in the water without any issues. Kayaks and paddle boards are also available and we made good use of them, taking them out every day and exploring the bay. The cabin itself is well stocked with dishes, linens, towels, and all the day to day necessary items. It is well maintained and very clean upon arrival. Cable and internet are available and work well without any issues. The grill on the patio works great and we spent our nights outside by the fire pit relaxing under the stars. Aside from a unique location on Oneida lake where you get a quiet private beach, the real standouts are the owners. They truly care about your experience and take the time to check in to see how you are doing and if you need anything, and they also took the time to play with our little one who was constantly excited about their two friendly dogs. We would recommend this camp to anyone looking to have a beach side vacation and we are looking forward to coming back next year. Thank you Chris and Jordana!
A pleasant surprise
A first visit to a new region or location always comes with some worry. Our stay was much more than we expected.
The condition of the interior was clean, well-maintained with evidence of repairs and improvements, and filled with quality furniture and appliances. The kitchen had a full refrigerator, 4-round stovetop, and oven. It was stocked with enough pots, pans, utensils, dish ware, and extras to provide full, complete, and quality meals for our family over our two weeks. There was also a new (large) washer/dryer combo for washing whenever needed. The dining area was large, and had a long table for seating 8-10, or for crafts and board games during the few rain showers we had.
The master bedroom was large with closet space and a new dresser for clothing. It also included a flat-screen television for watching movies or sports when the main television was being used in the living area. The second bedroom was small, but functional and adequate for sleeping two adults on two twin beds. The full bath had a shower and sink for basic hygiene. The half-bath off the living room was a welcome addition to relieve congestion for a family.
The living room was large and open and included two full couches for lounging in the evening or napping in the afternoon. One of the couches pulled out into a double bed for extra guests. The breeze from the lake cooled and moved through the living room to keep all cool and comfortable.
The beach was close, clean, and perfect for small children as the natural sand beach is still shallow (less than 3-feet deep) close to 100-feet from shore. The sunsets were spectacular to watch in almost complete privacy.
The landlords were always close by to make sure we had everything we needed, and took care of the few small repairs we needed immediately (literally, immediately!).
For the price, this is a great bargain. It is not the Hilton, but it is perfect for guests who want a comfortable, cozy place for a quiet, private week away from the stresses of the real world.
Great place to stay!!!!
This was one of the best places we have stayed. Very clean place and well equipped with linens, towels and kitchen items. Chris was not able to be there, but the cottage was unlocked and ready for us to start our vacation. Very quiet area and lots of places to walk our dogs. The lake area was beautiful. The sandy beach was well taken care of and we dropped our kayaks right on the beach and went out on the lake several times. Sunsets were gorgeous!
A pleasant stay
We just returned from a 8 day stay at the lake. The cottage is maybe 300 feet from the lake with lake views from the Livingroom and the back patio. The owners live across the street and could not be more friendly and there to help with any questions. The sandy beach is easy access and you can walk into the water for atleast 300 yards and it is still waste deep.They offer internet so I worked half the time and vacationed the other half. They have cable TV in the living room and the master bedroom along with games that would keep you occupied during a rainy day.A propane gas grill was available to sit outside and cook on the patio. Also has a washer and dryer available in the cottage so you need to pack half the amount of clothes you would normaly bring.The surrounding area has plenty of resturants and activities to attend to. Vernon Downs is 15 miles away along with Turning Stone Casino if the weather is bad take a ride . Who knows it may turn out that your vacation will be free. I would suggest that you consider renting this location for sure if you are heading to Oneida Lake.I will surely doing the same .
