White O’Morn is a beautiful Owasco Lakefront rental that has been completely updated. New hardwood flooring was installed throughout. The fully equipped kitchen has been remodeled with new cabinets, appliances and granite countertops. The first floor bath was completely renovated with a new vanity, extensive tile work and walk-in shower. A new laundry room with full sized washer and dryer was added for your convenience. Each of the three bedrooms (one on the main floor, two upstairs) was renovated with new hardwood floors and new queen size beds and mattresses (five queens in all - the cottage sleeps 8 comfortably). Please note that linens are not included.

This well-appointed and immaculate lakefront home has 90 feet of lake frontage on the highly desirable east side of Owasco Lake. The east side location provides you with afternoon sun and mesmerizing sunsets. Five sets of sliding glass doors provide access to the expansive deck and gorgeous views up and down the lake. Enjoy vacationing in luxury with plenty of room for large families to spread out in the multiple living and dining areas, several outdoor decks, patios and porches.

Located at the end of a fire lane, there is plenty of parking and no through traffic. White O’Morn is located a short walk from a vintage ice cream stand (Tom Thumb’s Drive In) pleasing kids of all ages with delicious hard and soft ice cream as well as a wide variety of fried goodness. By the end of your stay you’ll wish the walk was longer.

White O’Morn is all told about 1,800 square feet, plus front and back patios and a large wraparound deck. There is a private lakeside patio with fire pit. There is also a nice sized yard for kids and adults to play while overlooking the tranquil lake.

White O'Morn is located in the coveted Lindenwood Cove section of the lake, offering the benefits of mid-lake solitude and views while somehow being only a 10 minute drive from Auburn with it’s restaurants, cultural attractions, nightlife and amenities. You’ll wake up each and every day simultaneously at the water’s edge and 10 minutes from Wegman’s and Prison City Brewing - you’ll think you died and went to heaven.

Staying at our lake-house you will also be just 15 minutes from the village of Skaneateles - with it’s own scenic lake, historic restaurants, boutique shopping and lakeside attractions. Craft beer lovers should check out Fingerlakes Taps - a craft beer bar with 82 New York State breweries on tap. You’ll need two weeks of vacation just to try them all.

The Merry-Go-Round Playhouse is only five minutes away. This 501 seat theater, located at Emerson Park at the base of the lake, puts on a wonderful slate of live theater (a great mix of Broadway releases and Classic Revivals).

White O'Morn is also five minutes from two golf courses (Lakeview and Owasco Country Clubs) and 15 minutes from two more (Highland Park and Dutch Hollow).

You’ll only be bored when you want to be.

You will have direct, private access to the water from the 90 ft dock, or wade in at the stone beach area. Play in the lake all day and then enjoy sunsets and bonfires on the beach every night. The level stone beachfront with a gradual grade into the water, make this property perfect for kids through grandparents.

Sportsmen can fish off the dock, bring their own boat or rent a boat from the nearby Owasco Marina.

Owasco Lake is located in the heart of the Finger Lakes region, so you will never run out of things to see and do.

For the historically minded, you can visit Auburn and see the Harriet Tubman House, the home of William H. Seward or the Willard Chapel (the only complete and unaltered Tiffany Glass chapel known to exist). Auburn also has a maximum security prison, home of the first ever execution by electric chair (sorry - there's no gift-shop).

Wine connoisseurs will love being a short drive from the Cayuga, Seneca, Keuka (and other Finger Lakes) wine trails.

Sportsmen will love being 15 minutes from a Bass Pro Shop. Others shoppers will appreciate being 30 minutes from Destiny USA - one of the largest shopping malls in the northeast (complete with an IMAX theater, indoor go carts and a Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville).

Staying at White O'Morn is the perfect vacation whether you are looking to do everything or nothing at all.

    The description and reviews for this property are not accurate. The house is in a state of disrepair! It also was filthy inside! We had to use duct tape around the window air conditioners and door screens to keep the bugs out. One smoke detector in the whole house! No railings on staircase! Unfortunately this house is very neglected and should NOT cost that much per night! The fee should be half of what is stated!!

    This rental was everything that we had hoped for and more! Bright, clean, peaceful, quiet, all the modern appliances you need and beautiful throughout, inside and out. When you arrive, the pics of the living room area truly don't do the view justice. You walk in through the modern/fully equipped kitchen and into a living room with the most amazing lake view and light. The location on the lake is just perfect. Sunsets are truly spectacular! We looked forward to every night, spent on one of the decks or on the dock watching the sun go down for an hour. The fire pit helped make staying out there after dark fun, too. It's an extremely quiet spot which is exactly what we wanted/needed. Not far from lots of amenities and restaurants. (Wegman's, Skaneateles, etc.) to get everything you need. We wanted to make this a home away from home for a week and Mike made it truly that for us. While we brought a lot of our own stuff with us, the house was stocked with lots of things that you need upon arrival. There is a one person kayak on site by the water, which was a pleasant surprise and it was used daily on the lake. Bring along your own life vests and shoes to walk into the lake, though as it is a little rocky as you ease your way in. One of us is an avid runner and the roads up from the lakefront into the countryside were wonderful to get long runs in. Quiet roads with some challenging hills but always beautiful surroundings and friendly locals. Mike was very welcoming, kept us appraised of any yard work that would happen, etc. and even though we had no need to contact him with any issues, he checked in to ensure that we were enjoying ourselves and if all was going well. One of us is from Ireland so we enjoyed all of the Celtic nods to the family's heritage. Sometimes a house is more than a building, you get a real feeling that it is a home. This was that kind of house. And for a rental property, that is a wonderful thing indeed. We were sad to leave this special place and very much look forward to returning.

    Wonderful vacation for the family!

    We had a wonderful time staying at this property. Reasons are: 1. Cleanliness. 2. Ease of use for families. Washing machine and stocked kitchen supplies. 3. Kids had a blast and my 8 year old was able to learn to kayak with the kayak on property...bring your own life vest and water shoes. The neighbors were kind and lent us a pair for the adults! 4. Kid friendly: ice cream shop in walking distance, Wegmans only minutes away, a playground nearby at the public beach, Skaneateles only a short drive away for a short excursion, loved that the water was shallow enough for my kids (6 and 8 years old) were able to walk out to the end of the dock, and a fire pit for s’mores. 5. Super neighbors. 6. Quiet and peaceful-a great place to rest and recover. 7. Sunsets are gorgeous. The kids said that it “felt like home” and we get the same way. Very fun week and the kids didn’t want to leave. It did help to have great weather all week-we were lucky. However, there is plenty to do in the surrounding area. We can’t say enough about the property and hope to come back next year. Mike was super responsive and helpful. We even took him up on a restaurant recommendation. You will enjoy!

    The cottage is conveniently located. East side of the lake is always the best for sun during the day and sunsets n the evening. We spent our time swimming, fishing, kayaking and soaking up the sun. It also has a short walk up to Tom Thumb for ice cream. Cottage was clean and provided enough space for everyone. Multiple porches/ seating areas allow you to chose Sun or Shade. Whole cottage has been updated. Really like the fridge w water and ice dispensers. Easy check-in and check-out. Owner responsive to questions. I would definitely rent again.

We had so many precious moments - beautiful sunsets, fires at night, daily visits from a mom and six ducklings, and countless fireflies lighting up the night. The house is a great size and very comfortable with all modern amenities. We didn't leave the house much it was so relaxing but did visit some wineries close by and a boat tour of Cayuga lake. We didn't want to leave!

Mike the owner was always available and quick to respond and very gracious to us. The only comment that we would make that isn't positive, would be the shrubbery in front of the deck was overgrown and blocking the view of the water.

    Everything about this property was exceptional. From the incredible sunsets to the wonderfully appointed kitchen this property delivered on every level. It’s worth pointing out that in addition to the magical lake side setting you are only 15 minutes drive from the Wegmans located In Auburn, NY and only 20 minutes from the beautiful village of Skaneateles. We also rented a boat for the week from Finger Lakes Boat Rentals that launched and delivered the boat to our dock. Talk about hassle free service. The cottage itself is well appointed with everything from a Weber Gas Grill to all of the accoutrements required for daily living such as cutlery, plates and even spices. The cottage has been recently been completely remodeled. All in all a wonderful experience. We would rent this property again.

    This place was very quiet - located far from the road on a long fire lane - which we were happy about. Nice neighborhood, although cottages were very close together. Also very clean, with a nice deck and view of the north end of the lake. The kitchen was adequately supplied. Other than that, what else can we say........ We felt it definitely wasn't worth the price we paid, but we have traveled extensively and have many comparisons we can make. There were just two of us, but it is hard to imagine this place sleeping 10. Yes, there were 5 queen-sized beds, but two of them were in one room, and two were in the other room upstairs, so it is hard to imagine it sleeping 10 adults. 10 members of one family, possibly, but not 10 adults. The stairs were narrow and somewhat steep. There were no blinds or shades on the front and 2 of the side windows, which afforded little privacy. We weren't around at the appropriate trash removal times, so we had to take our trash with us when we left. No directions were supplied for the heat or for the television, but we did eventually figure these out. Overall, an OK place for our purposes, just overpriced in our book.

    Very clean and large sliding glass doors present a great view of the lake. Kitchen excellent and beds comfortable. A/C and TV perfect. The house is not, however, handicapped friendly. Stairs going up are narrow deep treads and no railing all the way up to second floor. No grab bar in the shower and Many steps to the beach and the dock was not usable due to the amount of bird droppings on the dock. This is a great house for families. We enjoyed our stay there.

    Had a father/son long weekend with a few friends as a college graduation present to our sons. Spent the weekend fishing off the dock, grilling, hanging by the fire Chiminea (bring fire wood), relaxing on the deck & playing corn hole (we brought). This was the perfect location with incredible views and sunsets!!! The house has been recently updated & the grounds were great. The local brewery was a good spot for lunch and we rented a boat from the near by marina for a fun day of fishing on the lake (hint - reserve the boat days in advance). The 5 queen size beds were ideal & the large family room was perfect for watching the games, relaxing and playing poker (brought our own table & set) . The owners did an amazing job making sure that every detail was looked after. The near by Bass pro shop was perfect for picking up our last minute fishing needs. We caught so many fish off the dock, it was endless amounts of fun. This is a family memory none of us will soon forget - The ride was an easy 3:45 from New Jersey. We can't wait to go back again next year !!! The Moldovans - New Jersey 2018

White O Morn was the perfect setting to celebrate our sons graduation and we look forward to returning to this lovely home.

    This property was everything we had hoped for - just as described and more. The cottage is charming and immaculate. Four of us spent our time playing string quartets in the spacious light-filled great room with stunning views of the lake and sunsets through wall-to-wall windows/glass doors which open up to a generous deck (plus a second deck below). The area is quiet and tranquil except for the chirping of wildlife. The kitchen is well-equipped, the beds are comfy, the decor is lovely and fresh. Plenty of parking, quick access to places of interest and restaurants. The host is very friendly, accommodating of some special requests we made - just terrific. Highly recommend!!!!

    This house was perfect for 4 woman looking to get away for some wine tasting and girls weekend to catch up. The house is renovated nicely and has everything you could need. Having 5 queen beds allowed for everyone to have plenty of space. The setting is peaceful and was even welcomed by a friendly neighbors dog. We would love to come back again! Thank you for opening your home up so we could enjoy it.

    Once again, our weekend stay at WoM was perfect...six ladies relaxing. The sunsets were incredible and the lake endlessly serene. We had plenty of space inside and out and had everything that we needed. We love this spot on Owasco Lake and look forward to our next visit. Thanks, Mike!

    We absolutely loved that the cottage was located on the east side of the lake so we could enjoy a gorgeous sunsets! The house was clean, stylish, and well maintained. The indoor and outdoor fireplaces were perfect for this time of year. Mike was the perfect host! Would definitely consider staying here in the future.

    First and foremost, Mike is a wonderful owner to work with - answered all my questions promptly and accommodated us above and beyond. This home has everything you could possibly need while away from home. The last VRBO I rented did not supply salt and pepper - zero cleaning supplies - there is no standard, so I always bring supplies. Not necessary in this beautiful home. This home is immaculate, comfortable and the view is amazing. We enjoyed the outdoor decks, the dock and the peacefulness of the home's location. The laundry room was so large that we were able to put the baby's crib in there - a fourth bedroom! The upstairs beds were so comfortable. The surrounding area was beautiful and we enjoyed Emerson Park with our little one. Looking forward to our next visit, Mike, thanks again!

    What a perfect place to just get away for awhile. The cottage was beautiful and it was obvious a lot of care and consideration was put in the new renovations. The windows all across the front of the cottage give you a beautiful view of the lake and of course those wonderful sunsets. We enjoyed all the deck space and ate outside every night. The water was crystal clear and luckily the weather was perfect. We especially liked that the cottage was at the end of a very quiet road which made for a safe environment for our daily walks. We would definitely like to return again next year to enjoy the beautiful fall weather.

    Loved our week at White O'Morn. The house was beautiful with lots of the basics already there for you! Gorgeous sunset from the deck every night. My mom (83 years old) was able to sit at the front sliding glass doors and enjoy the children and grandchildren gather from across the country. This may be the beginning of a tradition. Thank you for a lovely stay!

    We had an incredible time at Mike's lake house. The place was easy to find, and in a great location right on the lake. We had fun on the rainy and sunny days as the house is perfect for a small group of people to relax hang out! We ended up renting a boat one of the days, and cruised around the lake - highlight of our trip! Mike was super accommodating, and very communicative. Would stay again in the future. Also, would recommend Tom Thumb ice cream just up the road - most amazing ice cream I've had!

    We enjoyed a great spring weekend on Owasco Lake. The property was exactly as described. The camp was clean and stocked with everything we needed. We especially appreciated the high-speed internet and access to NetFlix and Hulu (perfect for the one rainy day we had). Plenty to do in Auburn (we loved Prison City Brewing). As others have said, the view from the house is amazing. We look forward to going back soon.

    What a lovely place and the perfect spot for a girls' weekend. The view of the lake was incredible and we found ourselves spending much of our Saturday out on the lower patio with a fire in the chiminea. The evenings were cool enough to have a fire in the fireplace in the livingroom. We were also able to throw on our sneakers and walk along the lanes Surrounding the cottage. The hills were a welcome challenge and afforded spectacular views of Owasco Lake. We plan to return again soon.

    Clean and cozy. Very relaxing home

    Beautiful home, pictures are exactly as it appeared. It came stocked with the basic necessities which was fantastic. Internet accessibility, no problem. The only thing I would caution about is the air conditioning. It is not central air. There are window air units in all 3 bedrooms that work like a charm but none anywhere else. On a humid day it was quite hot in the living room or kitchen however there are ceiling fans that helped. I would definitely stay agajn. Views are spectacular from the balcony and beach front. Worth every penny!

    My family which includes 3 small children, thoroughly enjoyed their stay at White O'Morn. The house is very well done and recently renovated. I was very impressed by the cleanliness and also by the availability of kitchen utensils, Internet access, cable etc. The view of the lake from the living room and deck is amazing! The dock provided many hours of fishing fun for our family as well as easy access to boats. Also a bonus to be able to walk to 'Tom Thumb' for lunch/dinner and mini golf! I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to spend time on Owasco lake.

    My family had a perfect week at White O'Morn. The house is beautiful and comfortable - the views of the lake are outstanding!!! Clean and neat as a pin and most importantly it could handle my large extended family for a family gathering. Mike was extremely responsive to all our needs and I would definitely rent this place again! Thanks for the memories!

    What a wonderful spot on a lovely lake! It was so quiet and peaceful and perfect! This cottage is definitely the place to relax. It was welcoming and had everything that we needed. After a quick trip to Wegmans, we were all set for the week. I really liked the area, which was filled with mostly year-round residents. The lake was super quiet with hardly any boat traffic. This was a plus since our kids spent most of their time floating in the lake, swimming, or even kayaking. The bedrooms were so nice and I was grateful for the air conditioning after our warm, sun-filled days. I did keep the lakeside blinds open so that I could wake to the incredible view each morning. We dined on the deck, enjoyed campfires on the beach, fished, and swam. A lot. The lake bottom is rocky so be sure to bring your water shoes. The kids walked up the neighboring lane to Tom Thumb for ice cream cones. There was also a miniature golf course to satisfy their competitive spirit. I couldn't believe the sunsets...each evening offered an amazingly unique surprise. The front room was mostly sliding glass doors that offered amazing views of the lake. We happily gathered here each night. It was delightful. We did have one rainy afternoon so we headed out to the Waterloo Outlet Mall (which was pretty awesome!) and couldn't pass by Bass Pro Shop without stopping. We also had a nice meal at Parker's in Auburn's small-town charming downtown area (look for the towering, vintage Genesee Beer sign!). Thank you...this was perfect for my family and we loved our stay. Same time next year please! 😎

    Sorry this took so long to get to you, but we want to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your Lake House in July. The house was so nicely updated and had everything you could want to have a nice relaxing stay. The swimming and fishing were great, and having Tom Thumb within walking distance was a plus! We would certainly recommend the property to anyone looking for a house on Owasco Lake.

    We stayed at White O'Morn during the Memorial Day weekend. There were 2 families; 4 adults and 4 children. The cottage was the perfect size to accommodate all of us without feeling cramped. Enjoying the sunshine on the lower deck and kayaking on the lake is how we spent most of our time. The side yard was great for playing bocce, tossing the frisbee, and playing Can Jam. The house came with everything you'd need and was in pristine condition. Fillmore Glen State Park and Wegmans are a short drive away. Would love to come back and stay!
