“Beautiful views and great house”
Reviewed 31 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We enjoyed our week at Lake Owasco. The house was comfortable and offered great views of the lake. Todd was very helpful whenever we had questions or issues (there was a water leak from the ice maker). The owner was very helpful and answered our questions promptly. There is a road between the house and the lake, so our access to the lake was limited unless we piled everyone into two cars and drove to the nearby beach. The property, however, was lovely!

“Relaxing weekend in a beautiful setting”

Comfortable home, could have been cleaner.

Spent a long weekend with my sisters and mom (6 in all) and had a relaxing stay. Beautiful home in a gorgeous, private setting. This newly redone home has all the amenities required for a comfortable stay and is well appointed with kitchen equipment, linens, beach towels, etc. Very nice dock, lounge chairs and firepit down an easy flight of stairs to lake level and small rock beach/water access with amazingly crystal clear water that Skaneateles is known for.

Details provided prior to our stay to navigate to the home were ok, but GPS had a hard time with the address, so we researched and mapped the way ourselves. All other info provided ahead about getting into the house was helpful and accurate and additional information inside the home about the area was a nice touch.

Property manager replied extremely promptly to my text upon arrival to give us control over the thermostat which they can turn on / off remotely. Owner happened to be in area and attended to us promptly to address a jammed bathroom door that wouldn't open / close.

In fact our only complaint was that it could have been much cleaner. Upon arrival the kitchen trash was already full, fruit flys and all and the large soaking tub was filled with pet hair - cleaners had neglected to clean it at all. There were dead house flies around the 1st level bedroom floors and even after arranging with the owner to have the cleaners return during our visit, while the tub was cleaned, the trash was left full, no evidence of vacuuming and the flies on bedroom floor remained so we just dodged them as we moved about the room. For the price for the rental and cleaning fee we expected it to be clean and didn't feel we should have to break out the vacuum ourselves.

That said, all in all it is a really nice, comfortable home to stay in.
