    This home was perfect for our family reunion. Bedrooms are all a beautiful size and bathrooms worked very well. The house has everything you need; towels, sheets, blankets and kitchen had plenty of pots, pans and dishes. We enjoyed sitting around the fire pit in the mornings and evenings. Waking up seeing the lake was an added treasure. Debbie was very helpful and responded quickly to any questions. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

    Incredible Lake Home

    This home is amazing. It is located on Owasco lake and had the most stunning views. The sunsets were awesome. The bedrooms are spacious, and it had a big open kitchen, that was well stocked with plates, silverware, cups and many different types of glassware. The owner was extremely responsive and very easy to deal with. My family traveled from all over the country to attend a wedding in Auburn, which is a great town that had a selection of grocery stores, hair salons and any other service you may need. I would highly recommend this home and would stay again.

    Perfect House/Perfect Vacation

    The house was beautiful with plenty of relaxing spaces even for a family of eight. We have stayed at luxury vacation rentals for 30+ years and I must say this house was the best equipped. The setting is gorgeous and the area is beautiful. There is so much to do and seeing so many bald eagles definitely made it extra special. Will definitely be coming back for our next lake vacation.

    Another Magical Visit!

    Thanks again to Debbie and Rick for a wonderful week in Owasco lake and for being such terrific hosts! We so appreciate you and look forward to next year’s visit 👍

    Perfect spot for a family reunion

    Our family has vacationed here for 6 summers. Once before Rick and Debbie's renovation and 5 since. We keep coming back because this home has everything from a fully equipped kitchen to a billiard room. Outside it's lakefront with paddle boards and kayaks with enough room for lawn games. Hiking is a short car ride away. The Wegman's in Auburn is perfect for all food needs with a well oiled preorder process. You will not be disappointed. The house is terrific and Debbie and Rick are great hosts.

    Warm and welcoming

    This house is large but still so warm and welcoming. Very well maintained. Lots of rooms to sit in and reflect. The stream alongside the home was a favorite. The views were all beautiful. The outdoor area was perfect for enjoying nice weather. Wonderful stay.

    Wonderful Weekend Getaway

    We love this house so much we had to bring my parents here for a surprise weekend getaway to enjoy the Dicken's Days in Skaneateles. The house is immaculate, and has such personality with its stone and wood accents. The owners have done a beautiful job modernizing it without taking away the historic elements. Everything you could need or wish for is stocked in this home. The beds are comfortable, kitchen fully stocked, and they even have throw blankets to cuddle up with for a movie in front of one of the two large stone fireplaces. The lakeviews are amazing. Never disappointed staying here, and looking forward to our return in April. Debbie is always just a text away if there is ever a need.

    Family Trip

    The home is beautiful and communication with the property manager was a breeze. Highly recommend.

     by Beverly

    Our family of 10 adults and 2 children enjoyed a wonderful four-day retreat at this expansive and historical home on Wide Waters. The bedrooms, baths, living, kitchen and dining areas have all been upgraded, very spacious, comfortable and well-stocked. The connected garage is helpful for unloading etc and the setting rooms overlooking the creek and plus! The Owasco lake views, easy access to beach, dock, kayaks, paddleboards and outdoor seating and indoor fireplaces and billiard room, and Smart TV's offered something for everyone. The host Debbie was super in communicating and making sure everything was OK. We give this a 5-star!!
