    Perfect friends and family getaway home

    This home was a perfect location for our friends and family summer vacation. Plenty of space to gather together or find a quiet corner to yourself to read or enjoy the views. The whole group both adults and kids enjoyed the kayaks and paddleboards and spending time on the lake. Was just what we were looking for to enjoy a low key getaway making memories and spending time together. Hoping to be able to return for a future vacation.

    Gorgeous home and location

    Amazing spacious home for large gatherings. Great for lake activities and hiking nearby. Our third summer and everyone loves it.

    Great Location, Great Hosts

    Our fifth year at this location and we are never disappointed. Beautiful lake front property and the pictures do not do it justice. Well stocked kitchen with a Wegman's grocery store within 20 minutes. An easy hiking trail off Sam Adams Rd and a harder one at Fillmore Glen St Park. Great for family reunions.

    This beautiful historic home had everything that our family needed during our visit at the end of April. While the weather was cold and even snowy, inside was cozy and welcoming! This lovely home has beautiful views, well appointed amenities!

Skaneatles is only a 20 minute drive and is a beautiful little town with great restaurants..I can’t say enough good about this home..I would definitely stay here again.

    Awesome place for a reunion

    My college girlfriends and I used this house for a reunion gathering and just loved it!!! It is modern, clean and has all the necessities for us...grill, kayaks, pool table, firepit, big dining room table, lots of rooms and a warm and inviting atmosphere. We typically go for walks and it is close enough to travel into either Auburn or Skaneateles to shop or visit a winery/brewery. Even though there are 10 of us, there is enough room for all and Fingerlakes Luxury Rentals are very easy to work with. We look forward to using this place as gathering of college friends/sisters for a long time to come.

    My extended family spent a lovely week in this house in March 2022, experiencing snow and ice from safe inside. We were in upstate NY for our niece's wedding, and the well-apportioned kitchen was perfect for cake baking and pre-wedding dinners. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for all. The adult kids loved the pool table and the huge TV, and those of us that needed to make work calls found plenty of quiet rooms/spaces to do so. We enjoyed walks on the quiet country roads and in the nearby nature preserve. We'd love to come back in the summer to better enjoy the lake.

    Fabulous Home & Location

    We had a fabulous stay. Loved the kitchen and dining area. The living room with windows to the lake was awesome each morning at sunrise. The billiard room was a huge hit. Would love to stay again in the summer.

    Due to the pandemic, we were unable to celebrate my 80th birthday last year as a family. However, we celebrated Thanksgiving along with my 81st birthday at the Adams House this year. The rooms were lovely, beautifully decorated, and very spacious. My two daughter-in-laws and a son enjoyed preparing fantastic meals in the large kitchen. The area outdoors was very quiet and peaceful. We all enjoyed ourselves immensely!!! Thank you!!!

    Sam Adams house is an amazing place. The house is spacious and just as described. The lake front area is nice. The weather didn’t give us much opportunity to enjoy outside, but when the weather cleared, the night sky was absolutely amazing! The place is peaceful and quiet. We hope to stay there again in the future.
