About the property

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!

Oneida Lake Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this cottage to be near family who rented a larger cottage within walking distance. The Brown's, owners of the unit we rented, were very hospitable and helped us navigate our way through catering a large family outing on the last night we were there. The weather was beautiful the entire week with temps in the mid 80' to 90 degrees everyday and nighttime temps in the high 50's with no need for air conditioning. The cottage is well equipped and perfect for a couple or family with small kids.

Oneida Lake is beautiful with a sandy bottom and very shallow water allowing us to walk out at least 100' before it is over our heads. The warm weather coupled with shallow water made for great swimming, and we all spent 2 hours or more in the water each day; this was a mostly adult family outing. Although I did not catch any fish on my two extended tries during the week, a family member did land a 3 lb. bass on the last day.

Our family get together takes place every two years in Upstate New York and the next time we will definitely be looking at Oneida Lake again and hopefully staying at this cottage.

Serene Sunsets, great for kids!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed in the Cottage ( 2 weeks) . The owners are wonderful, and have everything covered (including full size washer/dryer) . The bathroom in the big bedroom was newly remodeled and they added an enclosed outdoor shower that was great! Our kids love the sandbars and shallow water to play in. We will continue to come back. I am always amazed how clean this property is as well. Can't say enough good things! This year the bar/restaurant on Lewis point (a 2 min walk away) had live music on Friday nights. You will enjoy your time in this quiet cottage.
