The house was great for a family vacation! We had our four adult children and their spouses (and one 7 year old granddaughter). The only thing was the size of the showers, except for the master. The room at the top floor should be given to the smallest people-our tallest person was in that room and it was a very tight for. The two on the second floor were better but still small. The owners were great and wanted to do everything they could to make our stay homey and enjoyable!
We had a great weekend attending a graduation at Cornell. This is a serene, quiet and beautiful home that can house your entire family. Highly recommend this home.
Perfect spot for our extended family to stay with us and be a part of graduation festivities. House is beautiful and large enough to accommodate our family of 10.
We had such a wonderful time staying at the Lake house. My husband booked it for my 30th with another two couples. They were blown away with the house! It has everything you need for a successful stay. Only wish is the weather was a little nicer because we dying to use the Kayaks that Chris and Heather were so kind to bring down for us. Would stay again!
We had a great time this past weekend celebrating my fiances 35th birthday! If you are looking for an open space where everyone can hang out together and not feel on top of eachother, this is perfect. Would love to go back in warmer weather so we can use the decks, water access etc.
We had a great experience from start to finish. The house was immaculate and so much bigger than the photos indicated. The dedicated Game Room was a surprise bonus. 💯 The bedrooms were all set up nicely and each of our siblings essentially had their own floor! As the organizer for this sibling getaway, I was chosen to get the master suite. Perfect! My only regret is that I didn’t figure out how to work the steam shower room until my last morning. So we will be returning again! Thanks for a great getaway.
We had a great time - the house has everything you need, and plenty of space for several adults and kids. They even left us a sweet gift when we arrived!! Beautiful view of the lake and comfortable beds!
Everything about this house was fantastic. We can't wait to go back.
It was excellent Beautiful home and amazing views Definitely a must see
The house was clean, comfortable and cozy! Lots of room to spread out. We really enjoyed the little touches like holiday decorations and breakfast goodies. The house is so unique and beautiful, too. We had a great time playing games and watching movies with our teenagers - and very happy that our dog could join, too!
Beautiful place and a lovely view. Plenty of room.
Great house on the lake. Spacious, clean, a lot of natural light, and very well equipped (mainly the kitchen). Definitely recommended!
The Chantelle Marie house was perfect for our autumn stay. The leaves were still beautiful for lovely views from the lakefront deck and all the windows. Beds were very comfortable. All master baths were appreciated, plenty of hot water for chilly mornings. The media room (not pictured) was comfortable, cozy and spacious, and the house had more than everything we needed. The hosts had some fall decorations which were a lovely touch. Sparkling clean, our 7 adults and 3 dogs had a wonderful time. No trouble with internet for working/schooling remotely. It was the perfect pandemic break we all needed. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to work in, loved the commercial sized fridge and freezer! Everything was terrific, check in was easy, the hosts have thought of everything!! Thanks for a wonderful trip!!
Listing is accurately represented in picture. Manager and owner were very prompt in responding to an issue we had when we arrived. House is very comfortable, and we loved spending time at the lake.
The overall description of the property was accurate but for one very very huge inaccuracy. The property is not handicapped accessible. I found out too late that the bathrooms on the first floor, there are two of them, cannot be accessed by a person in a wheelchair. The doorways are too narrow. My husband has a wheelchair made especially for him and one of his requests was to make it as narrow as possible in order to get thru doorways. Even with his narrow wheelchair, he could not access any of the bathrooms. Also, the shower on the first floor is not handicapped accessible which meant my husband had to sponge bath the entire time we were at the house. The manager was aware my husband was in a wheelchair when we made the reservation because I sent several emails to confirm that the house would work for him.
We had a wonderful week! Other than hiking, biking, boating and swimming, we enjoyed the house’s amenities, spaciousness and location. Due to Covid, we didn’t want to go to restaurants, so the 6 of us prepared fabulous dinners in the tremendous kitchen. Wegmans is only 10 min away, and there are farmstands all over, offering the freshest produce. We sat outside for all our meals overlooking the lake and sat by the fire pit a few times looking at the starry skies and cooking s’mores. Thankfully the house is air conditioned because it was a very hot week. Having never been to the Finger Lakes region, we know we’ll be back!
This trip replaced a canceled trip to Nashville to celebrate a 50th birthday. We had a great time. The house was just right for our group. The kitchen is awesome. The owners live on the property. Chris and Heather were great and responsive to any questions or issues that we had. The 3rd floor bedroom does not cool as well as the others. We would definitely come back. The views are beautiful and the lake was perfect.
We had a great time and experience. The property and the water were great especially the water toys for use. The only negative was that the plumber took forever to replace a dishwasher in the heart of the day, but it wasn’t that much of an issue. Nice people, nice place, nice views, and nice memories!!
We all needed a change of scenery and we definitely found it here. This Beautiful home has a dream kitchen. We had 4 adults cooking and cleaning up and had plenty of room. Every kitchen gadget you would ever need. The beds were high end with extermly comfortarble sheets and comforters. Couches were very comfy . Owner was very nice and does live behind the property. We had 10 people and loved the 2nd floor balcony to sit out and stargaze. Thank you to Nicole who was very kind and helpful to get us through a few 90 degree days here. Location on the lake is almost in the center making boating perfect. We did use the dock and also the kayaks had a great time.
House is just as advertised - everything was clean and comfortable, great layout for a big group. Amazing views and easy access to the lake.
In a word- spectacular!
We booked CML months ago, way before Covid. Three of our group of 7 couldn’t make the trip and we weren’t sure any of us would. Nicole was super flexible as we determined if/how we’d get to NY. When we finally got there, it was great to see it was just as listed. While it was a way bigger space than we now needed, we loved and used most of the house.
Our family had an amazing time for our daughter’s surprise Cornell graduation weekend! Kitchen was beyond perfect for entertaining and stocked with everything you need!! Bedrooms were spacious and each had bathroom/shower. Sauna was a plus in first floor bedroom!! Lake was beautiful and kids loved the kayak and rowboat! The sunrise/sunset everyday were amazing. Chris and Heather were so accommodating for any questions and assisting with using the entire property. Such a memorable stay and would return in a heartbeat!
Would stay again!
This house is even bigger than it looks in the pictures. We had 3 generations of our family here and everyone had a great time. There is everything you could need. I highly recommend this for anyone with a large group.
This house was beautiful! Incredible space throughout. Very clean & a chefs kitchen. The view is unbelievable. Nicole the property manager stayed in touch throughout our visit. The kayaks & paddle boards on the deck were so much fun! We look forward to coming back!
My family of 8, plus one baby, enjoyed our stay at this huge home on Lake Owasco. We were staying in the area for a family wedding in Skaneateles, and this home was convenient and reasonably priced for the size and location of the home. We had plenty of sleeping space and bathrooms for our group. The living space was tremendous, we were only disappointed that we didn't have the opportunity to use it more. You could easily have a large gathering here, it was so spacious.
The kitchen/dining/living open concept is perfect for a large family. There are so many places for solitude and reading a book, to bigger gatherings playing board games, playing cards, or just cooking and snacking! Family environment and neighbors are great! The steam shower is amazing and the stairs are fun, not nearly as scary as the picture looks.
AMAZING!! From the time we arrived, until that sadness when it was time to leave, we had such a great time. The house was so roomy and open, the kitchen incredible too. All of the bedrooms were spacious, plenty of bathrooms and parking wasn't an issue. The availability of laundry facilities was a bonus, as was the gameroom and poker table. After spending the days out enjoying the gorges in Ithaca and Cayuga, and wine tasting aong Cayuga and Seneca, it was relaxing by the fire at night. A few trips to the dock, some time spent paddling on the lake, plenty for everyone to do. We will definitely keep in mind for future trips. Thank you so much for sharing your property so that others can create memories !
The house was perfect for our contingent of 7. More space than we needed. Super comfy beds (my kids commented specifically on this). Great view, very relaxing. Auburn and surrounding towns are interesting and fun.
Amazing home with beautiful Owasco lake views, spacious accommodations, plenty of open areas for gathering with friends and family, inside and out. I would definitely recommend for families and friend gatherings. Located in the Finger Lakes with an abundance of nearby wineries, breweries, waterfalls, lakes, gorges, and so much more. Chris and Katie are available and especially accommodating. Can't wait to book our next stay!
Loved everything about the house. Katherine was very responsive as a host. it's just a wonderful, airy place, a great view of the lake. We all had a great time.
Had a blast. Everyone had their own space to be alone or for everyone to hang out
With 7 adults, 2 young children and a dog, we couldn't have asked for a better house to stage our family adventure. Lots of space, clean, beautiful home huge kitchen. Great location with easy access to town for groceries, the lake, property pond for fishing, and a spectacular view. While we had to rent our own pontoon boat due to mechanical issues, it was a great addition to include. Prop manager was attentive and friendly. It was a great experience; all the way around. This one will be tough to beat! Thanks.
We rented the house to be able to accommodate grandparents, adult children and adult grandchildren who were able to come and go as their schedule allowed. The house was beautiful and was fairly well stocked with necessities. It was big enough to allow for everyone to have their own space when needed and gather for cooking and dining, puzzles, card playing, fire pit s'mores and conversation. We loved having use of the kayaks! Our only wish was that the water was better for swimming. If we had done more research, we would have been more aware. The game room does provide extra sleeping space but does not have any window coverings which made for a beautiful view, but a bit uncomfortable for sleeping. Over all, a great time was had by everyone!
We had a great time at this home! First time for us at Finger Lakes. The view from the house was beautiful and very relaxing and the home was very clean and comfortable. Would definitely consider returning. My only suggestion would be that an air conditioner be added to the game room.
The home was great! Plenty of beds and the kitchen and great room were the best!!! Owners were kind enough to leave us alone during our stay; yet, we knew they would have been there if we needed anything. Great property and we highly recommend it! Thank you!!!
Our extended family came together for the Christmas Holiday at the Chantelle Marie. We accommodated a very large group for several (3) holiday dinners. It was equipped with everything we needed. Our kids, all the nieces and nephews and even the adults will have memories of the 2017 Christmas that will last a life time. At 1am Christmas morning, we woke up out of a dead sleep to HoHoHo and bells ringing that was coming from outside. Still yet to be explained. Thank you so much for sharing this incredible gem. I hope we left it in good order.
This was the second year that we stayed at this location. We love the place, it is very roomy, great kitchen & supplies & love the private bathrooms. It is gorgeously decorated & it is a shame that already people have broken & ruined their furniture. Renters should take better care of the owners property; they spend the money to have luxury for people and then some renters ruin them and spoil it for everyone else!!
We just got married at Chantelle Marie's Celebration Hall and booked the Lakehouse for our wedding party and their dates. We had plenty of room for everyone, and it made it so convenient to go back and forth from the venue. The house is absolutely stunning, and had everything we needed for our stay (and more!). Chantelle Marie made our wedding weekend even more magical!
The amenities, number of bedrooms, baths, lounge areas, kitchen outfitting, laundry facilities, etc., are really good. The weather, 6-12 Aug 17, was excellent with no rain and cooling breezes each day. The following areas are recommended to ensure a good reception of the lake house: (1) Identify the pier area and water craft associated with the lake house. (2) Repair the TV in the 1st floor master bed room that received no TV signal. (3) Ensure the theatre area components work - had to call for help on this. (3) Treat each room to eliminate bugs, spiders, etc. (4) Replace the many missing venetian blind rods. (5) The first floor master bedroom bath really needs two sinks vice just one.
We had a wonderful stay at the A Frame the week of our wedding! The lake views are spectacular and the house itself if top notch! Thank you to Katie Carter for making it such a seamless process.
This vacation rental home & Katie, the property manager, get 5 Stars plus. Our family was looking for a comfortable and spacious house. All of our expectations were met. A very relaxing and calm home for a family get together. Well furnished and tastefully decorated. Stepping inside you find yourself in the great room with a fabulous view of the lake and the opposing shoreline. The house is stunning and we are very pleased with the fact that the photos and description are true to what we saw advertised on Home Away. This house was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen is beautiful and completely equipped. Very comfortable mattresses in each bedroom. Twenty years of renting vacation homes; this is one of the best and looking forward to booking again in the near future! We applaud the property manager Katie for her very prompt responses to a few concerns our family encountered after we arrived. She went above and beyond immediately to resolve a cable problem in the theater room and a non-working TV on day one. And, Katie acted immediately to take care of our needs during a 3-hour power outage. Katie; you were very gracious and most helpful during our stay. Thank you so much for your warmth & hospitality! We have already recommended this rental property to family & friends.
We enjoyed our stay very much. We were very surprised to see a Christmas tree up; that extra step was very thoughtful & perfect for us, since we were gathering for our Holiday celebration. Most attendants were displeased with the TV's not working in the individual bedrooms; but I wasn't there to have tv in our bedroom & most other places do not offer that, so it did not bother me. Was a little surprised at the washing machine issues, only because we were asked to put a load of our towels in the machine. One thing that would have been more helpful in the kitchen was a timer. I know you have timers on your phone, but since I did most of the cooking, I am not a person that keeps her phone on her 24/7. One cooking episode failed due to no timer (my phone wasn't near me after I set the timer!). Having even an old fashioned seperate ticking timer with a twist dial would have been great!! If all goes well with health, we will definitely plan the same next year!! Thanks!!
Lovely house, extraordinarily well stocked - with beautiful kitchen, appliances and tools. Worked very well for 8 adults and two children with occasional visitors during the day. Owner/agent was impressively available by phone and text (for minor logistics issues)
This house and location was just perfect for our weeks stay in the Finger Lakes. Everything was as described on VRBO and we could not have been happier. We rented a boat and the dock worked out perfectly. The linens, towels and robes were so plush. The kitchen was so nicely appointed that we wanted for nothing. There were a few problems with bees that made their way into the house but other than that it was really an awesome week.
This was our 2nd time at the Lakehouse and it was an even better experience than our 1st. Highly recommended!
The manager of this property goes above and beyond to provide your every need before you even realize you need it...our family stayed at the property behind this A frame. It catered more to our specific needs as a family and the manager and owner were more than willing to accommodate. With this being our first lake house rental, we were not sure of what we would require. This property provided every single thing that we had lacked to bring....we wanted for nothing the entire trip. The property was exceptionally beautiful and inviting. Quiet. Clean. More than enough open space for our families to have privacy, yet cozy enough for us to gather around meals. The roof top allowed for us to lay back and watch shooting stars.....truly a vacation property we will long for every year:) The property was exceptional, but it's the people we met there that I will now call friends:)
We loved this house! Our family was here celebrating my daughters wedding just down the road at Springside Inn. There were adults and children sharing this house but we had ample room for privacy due to three floors of living area. Once in the bedrooms you couldn't hear the noise from the rest of the house. Everything was in working order, the sauna, steam shower and media room were a big hit!! The house was clean and well maintained. We had access to the lake across the road with a nice beach to swim and kayaks for our use. Water shoes are a must for walking around the beach area. It is a nice area for kids, they could walk out in the water a bit. Katie made it easy for check in and kept in contact throughout our stay to make sure all was well. There were plenty of dishes and glasses to use and a dishwasher to clean up after. Many kitchen appliances were on hand for our use, a blender, coffee maker, ice cube maker, large refrigerator and commercial size gas stove. Towels were provided for our use in each of the four full bathrooms. There were also two irons and an ironing board in the first floor laundry room along with a quality washer and dryer. All bedrooms had a king bed and in the two second story bedrooms there was a twin mattress in the closet to use. We LOVED this house and would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York!!
My family of seven adults and five children stayed for a week in this beautiful A-frame. We had plenty of room! All the adults had king sized beds and the kids slept on twin mattresses or air beds that were found in all of the closets. This house is beautiful upon entry. It has lovely furniture and decorations. The kitchen is amazing! It has top of the line appliances along with everything you need to cook and eat your meals. We loved that since we did most of our own cooking. The washer and dryer were great too! Plus, there was laundry detergent available to use. You have a beautiful view of Lake Owasco. We enjoyed sipping our coffee and taking in the view every morning. There are two kayaks and a rowboat that are at your disposal. We loved fishing off the dock and in the rowboat. We were all pleased that we caught a lot of fish! The house is close to several winery's and we all enjoyed a visit to Harriot Tubman's house which was only 10 minutes away! We've stayed in many homes through vrbo, and we all agreed this one was one of the best. It is a beautiful home and will be fully stocked with everything you need to enjoy your vacation.
The property was amazing! We arrived mid afternoon and had total privacy the entire weekend (plus linens and essentials were provided) My only complaint was that the grill had what appeared to be (quite a bit of) dandelion residue on it and did not look like it was cleaned in some time. Other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would come back again!
Katie & Chris did a fantastic job having the place ready for us. It truly was everything we could have wanted, and then more. My husband & I just got married at the Celebration Hall & they went above & beyond, also provided us an amazing place to stay for friends and family to stay! Lots of beds, sleeping areas, space, huge kitchen, and much more! Anything you needed, Katie would run down to fix the problem / make something better. Absolutely incredible experience as well as the PERFECT WEDDING VENUE any bride could ever dream of. HUGE THANKS to you both! Would definitely recommend to anyone with a big party/group looking for an amazing get away!!!
Our stay was fantastic, as the home was clean and very open which was perfect for our wedding, as the bridesmaids all had a place to get ready at before the Ceremony. The location and scenery was great, with beautiful views of the lake, as well as plenty of outdoor seating to soak it all in. The house was very clean with plenty of spare towels and sheets, as well as easy to use directions for all the house appliances. I would definitely recommend the property, whether it be for a group of couples or a family, it was a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.
The property overlooks a beautiful lake. The house is very spacious and the layout of the home is great. There's plenty of space for activities. The access to Netflix as well as the lake were great perks. My only regret is not staying longer!
I purposefully didn't tell my friends that we were going to stay at this amazing house just to see their reactions when they arrived. It was well worth the wait; they were blown away by. We spent three nights here and cooked a few meals in the excellent kitchen. the view out over the lake on a beautiful sunny morning is something to behold. The house was well maintained and clean and very well appointed. We wanted for nothing while we were staying there and made full use of the theater room. This home made an excellent home base for wine tasting in the surrounding areas. Thank you again for letting us rent your beautiful home, it made for an excellent weekend.
You only need to look at the photos to see how beautiful and cozy this house is and it's fair to say the photos don't really do the house justice. When you walk in, it is absolutely breathtaking. Now that our 3 girls are all grown up with children of their own, this house was ideal for our family get together at Christmas time. Each family had a room of their own so there was privacy when needed yet we could all get together for meals around the huge dining table and to play board games. The large kitchen also made it really nice since there was plenty of room to prepare meals and snacks We all very much enjoyed our stay and hope to return again in the future.
Our family spent the Christmas holiday here and it easily accommodated all 9 of us. The kitchen was large enough that 4 adults worked away at Christmas dinner no problem. The view of the lake is magnificent through the big picture windows. It felt like another world and the whole family was delighted. I can't recommend it enough.
The property is situated on a gently sloping hillside and features a spectacular view of the lake from the large bay windows in the front of the home. The ground floor is open and airy with an amazing kitchen. Ground floor living room features plenty of seating and a gas fireplace, but does not feature a television, which I personally loved as we could enjoy conversation or a good book without the distraction. The theater room offered plenty of comfortable seating for a pleasant movie watching experience and also featured a gas fireplace. All of the bedrooms were very comfortable and well appointed. I could go on and on about the master bathroom, it is amazing. The jacuzzi tub is so nice to just relax in and big as well. My daughter could have stayed in there the entire trip. The steam shower is pleasant and also very relaxing. Katie, the property manager, was a pleasure to deal with and very attentive while still not being intrusive. Everyone was very happy and comfortable. I have been vacationing in various rentals on owasco lake twice a year for 5 years now and this has been one of, if not the most pleasurable experience so far. Would definitely recommend and we will be back.
Rented for business 2 weeks. Excellent stay with plenty of privacy for each guest. Luxurious bath and bed linen. Steam shower was the best, I want to get one at home now. Kitchen served well for shared meals, and moonlight view over the lake was great. Watching from a seat near the fireplace. Although there are plenty of oversized/newer televisions. We used one. Nice place to relax, be peaceful, and visit with your group. And next time, I need to use the fishing poles. Thank you Katie, for the assistance and care.
We rented Chantelle Marie Lakehouse for a small family reunion. The first floor master bedroom was great for the older member of our family. All bedrooms have their own private bath. The gourmet kitchen was well appointed and spacious enough for multiple people to work in at the same time. The property has an open floor plan which was great for visiting with each other and keeping an eye on the kids. And the view of the lake is awesome! We didn't get the chance to get out on the lake, but hope to return to the Lakehouse in better weather so that we can.
We booked the property in April of 2015 as well as the adjacent Celebration Hall for our wedding this past weekend. Throughout the entire planning process, Katie was accessible and quick with her responses to any of my questions. When we walked into the lake house to begin our stay for our wedding weekend -- we were once again wowed by the beauty of the property and home. We had a place to put several members of our wedding party and also held our rehearsal dinner right at the house! The amenities were numerous, the property was immaculate and the views were stunning. Chris, the owner, and Katie, the property manager, really know how to take care of their guests. Highly recommend!!!
My wife and I spent a wonderfully relaxing summer's week here with 3 other couples. Loved everything about the house - location, size, amenities, scenic views, etc. The management was super friendly and responsive to any concerns. Would definitely book again without hesitation!
Walked in the house and had an OMG moment! Everything was top-notch including Katie, the property manager. Highly recommend. Already planning to go back next year!
We recently spent a delightful week at Chantelle Marie Lakehouse. We arrived to find the house immaculate, with lots of space and amenities to keep 8 adults happy an entire week. Some of what we liked: fully supplied large kitchen, roomy eating area, two large living rooms, huge outdoor deck for relaxing during the day and stargazing at night, a large sloping lawn for outdoor games, outdoor seating to enjoy the spectacular lake view, four king bedrooms each with ensuite bathrooms and hotel linens, kayaks, rowboat, swimming in the lake... and easy to drive to nearby Auburn, Skaneateles Lake, Cayuga Lake, Ithaca, pontoon boat rental, and of course the local Wegman's. We're looking forward to returning. The property manager (Katie) and owner (Chris) were wonderful to us.
The oven is not just complicated, it is temperamental, and the theater was out of commission. EVERYTHING else was perfect. Love this place and will definitely be back!
