This was an awesome house, awesome location. Terrible neighbors, terrible communication with the property manager. We called him to try to figure out kayaks, and did not ever receive a call back. Disappointed in the communication, as we could not use them. However, we loved the property, and the city of Auburn! We had so much fun enjoying the beautiful fall weather, hiking, and local wineries. The game room and fire pit were fantastic. Definitely a great place for a fall getaway.
We had a nice, short stay on Owasco Lake in early August to visit with family. The property was perfectly advertised and well appointed, and we would certainly consider staying there again!
The property is listed as “Auburn Lakefront home”. Not only is it not waterfront but a neighbor called the police when we attempted to use the lake. The description says “sip your morning coffee on the dock”. We were not permitted on the lake. “ Enjoy our three kayaks.” There were only two. Also the kayaks could not be moved without a trailer. None was provided. The person who called the police told us that there were pending lawsuits against the owner. The presentation was a complete misrepresentation of the truth. The management company did not call me back a after learning of the issues. Unhappy and shaken by the intrusion of the police, we stayed only two nights. I have asked for a refund of the night we did not stay but it’s been days and there is no answer.
We had a nice week's stay at this property — the fire pit, grill, kitchen, and separated sunroom gave the four of us plenty of space to spread out and relax or come together easily. House is stocked with plenty of spices, cooking supplies, and even kayaks (free) and a golf cart (extra $) for you to use. The town is a short drive away and you can access the lake from there (no direct lake access from the house.) Overall, good value for the area to explore the Finger Lakes region. Thank you Ron and Irina!
We had an amazing weekend staying in this beautiful home. The fire pit was used for s’mores both nights! The fall air was enjoyed in the hammock while games were played in the garage. We enjoyed board games, watching movies, and delicious meals in the fully equipped home. And the lake house decor is perfect and inviting!! Previous reviews mentioned not being on the water or having access, but we didn’t need those amenities and we could see the lake from the enclosed patio. My kids loved their room, and my dad was able to enjoy the master suite. And the golf cart was an added bonus that had us all laughing with fun. Highly recommend a stay here, and the owner was easy and quick to communicate with. Would definitely stay here again.
The house is very comfortable, clean and well stocked. It provides a relaxing getaway. But, renters should be aware that it is not a lakefront home. To get to the lake, which is barely visible over the treeline from the house, one must walk down a dirt road and descend several flights of stairs. This property is not directly on the lake. It has lake access. Although this was not at all what we were expecting, since our children are older and we were only staying for the weekend, it was manageable. I would not recommend it for a family with small children. We did however really enjoy the availability of the kayaks, although they were short one paddle in the lockbox provided.
We were very disappointed with this rental property as the description in the overview stated that it was lakeside. Lakeside defined by Webster's dictionary is located on the side of the lake. The only way to get to the lake from this property is by a steep, treacherous set of winding, wooden, extremely slippery stairs. The staircase had no sides so you could easily slip through into a rocky ravine below. There are no signs warning of the danger and our son almost took a spill right off them! There is a picture of the staircase on the website but it only shows the bottom landing so it is very deceiving. The website also boasts of a beautiful lake view but we could barely see the lake through the trees that were fully in season at the time we had booked unlike the advertised picture that was taken before there were even any buds on the trees. Since there was nothing for our family to enjoy without the potential for danger we packed the car back up and went home the very same day never spending one night at the property. We made four phone calls to the guest contact person before leaving only having him pick up once at which time we had already sent him an email explaining our dissatisfaction and the fact that we were intending not to stay. I asked him to review the email then call me back. He never called me back so we left. The description of this property online was misrepresented, none of the issues we had with the property could have been changed before our arrival. We booked the property to enjoy the lake but realized upon arrival that in order to get to the lake we would be endangering our family. Our family lost a substantial amount of money and we were all very disappointed but there was nothing at that property for us to stay for without the risk of slipping off a staircase into a rocky ravine. We are hoping for some compensation as we never stayed one night. Unhappy customers!
