Historic, newly renovated 6500 SF private lakefront estate on Owasco Lake!


  • 6 Bedrooms and 4 Bathrooms

    Welcome to Wide Waters! Nestled on the east side of Owasco Lake, this wonderful estate was the former summer home of literary treasure, Samuel Hopkins Adams.

    This amazing stone Tudor was painstakingly renovated to its former glory and was recently introduced to rentals in July 2019. This home sits on 1.2 private acres, and has 6,500sf of space. It sleeps 14 people and features 6 TRUE bedrooms all with queen beds, 4 1/2 baths, 3 living rooms which include a billiard room, chefs kitchen and high end appliances including a Wolf stove. In addition, there are two large four season sitting porches with heated floors. There are also three separate forced air systems that provide heating/air conditioning to all areas of the home. There are also two gas fireplaces. One in the billiard room and one in the great room.

    The lakefront is truly impressive! This historic home boasts over 160 feet of private level lakefront. The fishing is amazing right off of the dock! We have four kayaks, two paddle boards and a mooring buoy available for your enjoyment!

    Please consider booking your stay and spend some time in a little piece of Auburn’s history on beautiful Owasco Lake!

      Wonderful Stay

      Stayed here during the kids February break. Beautiful property and very clean house. Our group had a great time and would love to go back in the summer to be able to utilize the lake!

      by Isabel on Finger Lakes Luxury Rentals

      House was absolutely beautiful and plenty of room for entire family. Can’t wait to come back!

      by Dani on Finger Lakes Luxury Rentals
      Stunning...

      Views, location accommodations, amenities and service! Utilized for work headquarters for virtual conference. While the days were busy, the home and location provided provide a place for relaxation and rejuvenation. Debbie and Rick were amazingly accommodating and helpful - truly going above and beyond with assistance to travel back to airport on Sunday evening! Shout out to Brittany for the ride! Definitely hope to return another time - absolutely beautiful!

      Above Expectations

      This home is fantastic. The quality of architecture, design, and amenities is incredible. Debbie and Rick respond immediately and go over and above to ensure the guest experience is exceptional. The Samuel Adams house is enormous with large spaces for gathering and plenty of beautiful private paces. The construction is top quality – solid wood doors, USB outlets everywhere, comfortable beds, heated floors in bathrooms, well-stocked kitchen with tons of cabinets, and enclosed, peaceful porches. There is a babbling brook that runs under a section of the home – incredibly quiet. We were at The Samuel Adams house on Wide Waters Lane to run a virtual conference, and the entire event was flawless – 100% uptime on the internet, a lovely home on a beautiful lake. It was November – we thoroughly enjoyed the fireplaces and fire pit. The house is large and allows space for social distancing inside and out. Debbie, the owner (and Rick), was there to help with anything we needed – especially when we discovered it is tough to get an Uber to go to the airport. If you are flying in, Uber and Lyft are readily available at the airport but not at the house. A rental car is a good idea for to/from the airport. Instacart delivers to the house from multiple stores in Auburn, so there is no reason to leave the property during your stay. We highly recommend this home and would be 100% confident that any property Debbie and Rick have is as wonderfully appointed as the Samuel Adams House.

      by Sue on Finger Lakes Luxury Rentals

      We had a lovely fall weekend at the Samuel Adams House. The check-in process was seamless and Debbie was super responsive and helpful. The house was exactly as described (newly renovated and very clean) and our large family enjoyed ALL of the living spaces, playing pool, fishing, kayaking, campfire and simply sitting on the dock and enjoying the lake and beautiful fall foliage. We'll be back!

      by Robert on Finger Lakes Luxury Rentals

      A group of family and friends get together, at a beautiful lake front home (too cold to swim). Place is great, in a beautiful part of the country, got to see the autumn colors. Would highly recommend.

      by Mansi on Finger Lakes Luxury Rentals

      Wide water rentals house is a paradise home. The location is perfect, super peaceful, serene and beautiful! The house is beautiful with tons of rooms and entertainment. I normally am pretty picky about the rentals, and I can say, I don't even have one negative feedback. It was 6 of us using the house from Thursday-Sunday, and had 2 more couples join us for the weekend (because the house has so many rooms!). The kitchen, living room, billiards room etc was just perfect for all of us - we cooked a lot, hung out near the fire place for many hours, up front by the water and played many rounds of pool while sipping on wine and watching the beautiful view of lake Owasco.

      The weather was perfect for kayaking as well. We didn't have to bring any life jackets from home, the garage was fully stocked with everything you needed. Our another favorite feature was the heated floors in the bathroom! so much so that I now want heated floors in my own bathroom! If you are the person who likes to stay at a place that is nicer than your own in comfort/amenities, this house wont let you down.

      Debbie/Amy/Brett were super helpful and responsive whenever we had any question. Great customer service! We will be back again next year for sure!

      Beautiful lake views

      Our mixed group of adults and kids had a wonderful stay at this property. We utilized all of the kayaks and paddle boards provided. The lake views were amazing. We’re glad we rented a pontoon boat for the week because it allowed us to really experience all that Lake Owasco had to offer. The house was very spacious and spotless upon arrival.

      Rest and Relaxation

      As soon as we arrived to this house, I felt relaxed and knew it would be a great vacation week.

      The house is squeaky clean, beautiful and has everything you need (and more). Comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen, tons of space to spread out and the lake is steps away. My son

      had a great time fishing (he’s 10). When he would get tired of fishing, kayaking

      and swimming, he would play pool. He never played before this vacation, but became quite

      a pool shark by the end of week. I would definitely go back again - tomorrow if I could!

      Perfect Family Getaway

      This is our third family reunion at this property. It seems to get better each time. Everything is provided from pool cues to Kayaks. Very private. Beautiful location.
