New Fingerlakes Lakehouse

Auburn, New York

This beautiful lake house was custom built by the owner in 2015 and new to the market in 2016. The owner custom designed and built this home specifically for this east side lot with 72' of private lake front that has just spectacular sunsets as it sits on nearly the widest portion of Owasco lake. The owner situated the home to allow for a view of the water from every room in the home and an unusual amount of privacy for the area. The home includes 3 bedrooms: one Master on the first floor and two spacious bedrooms on the second floor. One large bedroom is designed as a suite for a couple with children and sleeps up to 4 for a place to get away when your with a group. The charming home is a cozy 1,600 sq. ft. and includes a open kitchen great room concept for family's and small groups to enjoy company together. Also, you will find a relaxing covered porch place again for maximum privacy and lake views, yet thoughtfully placed to keep the sun from straining your eyes. Also included is a 1 1/2 car attached garage and parking for another 5 cars in the driveway. The outside lawn is big enough for playing games and a gentle walk down an inviting stone walk will lead you to a terrace level to enjoy the lake side which includes a fire pit for those evening campfires; a few more steps to the lake shore which is great for playing on the beach and splashing in the water. On the water you will find a two person kayak to enjoy and 70' of dock to swim, fish or dock your own boat. The shore is stone rather than sand, and water shoes are recommended. The clarity and warmth of the water have often been praised by our visitors and friends. The water starts out just inches deep and very gradually deepens to about 3 1/2' to 4' at the end of the dock. swim out another 30' and your in about 7-10' of water. Owasco lake is the deepest at 155' in the middle of this glacier formed Fingerlake and has plenty of lake trout, small and large mouth bass, perch and walleye for the fisherman. Some of the best ice fishing can be had out front when the ice arrives in mid winter months. Fall is spectacular when the leaves turn to brilliant reds, oranges, yellows.
Nearby you will find two public golf courses within minutes, mini-golf and ice cream are within a short walk, large chain grocery stores are about 10 minutes away, several choices of dining are available in the immediate area. If you enjoy theater, the Merry-Go-Round theater is about 2 miles away. Downtown Skaneateles offering dining and quaint shopping district is a gently drive about 10 minutes to the east. The world renowned Fingerlakes Wine Trail is a must. Also, nearby are hiking in beautiful gorges, hunting on state game land and snowmobiling in the winter months. If you just want a relaxing get away, or looking for year round activities - the home and area has plenty to offer.

For Winter time stay- may require 4WD vehicles. We do have the driveway plowed, but All-wheel drive or 4WD is recommended.

    Great House on the Lake

    They house is exactly as pictured. It was clean and comfortable. It does not have the wear an tear you sometimes find in rental properties. The area was nice and quiet for a relaxing family vacation. The view was beautiful and the lake was very clean and clear. Just a wonderful time with our family. We would most certainly rent this home again.

    We enjoyed a lovely weekend at Todd and Leslie's property. The house is gorgeous and has wonderful lake views through large windows. We had perfect weather and were able to rent a boat and dock it at the house. The kitchen is wonderful to cook in, but the only thing that would make it better is a large cutting board. We were really impressed by the property and will keep it in mind for future vacations!

    The house was everything we expected from the listing. It was very clean, in a great location, and had plenty of space for my family of four, my in-laws, and brother-in-laws family of 3. The owners were friendly and quickly responded to any questions we had. The nearby drive in/mini golf spot was a great surprise, one that we frequented. The location to Auburn and Skaneatles was fantastic. Highly recommend this property.

    We loved the location. Although we had to drive to the adjacent lake for the wineries, we loved being on a quiet lane and could sit in the backyard with the wonderful lake view. Too bad it was to cold to get in since that is the clearest lake water I have ever seen. We used the grill to cook delicious meals, the yard to play games, and loved that each couple had their own bathroom. Highly recommend!

    It was a wonderful home for a girls weekend! They owners worked well with us and even contacted me that I could text them anytime if they needed to come out and snow blow no matter how much snow off. One thing that should be stated more in the listing. The driveway is steep even with a 4 wheel drive hard it’s difficult to get out. Thankfully they let you use the garage here so you got to be on a flat surface to get out. But other than that it’s wonderful and I’d love to come back during the summer to see how beautiful the lake really is! Thank you again!

    Overall, this was a great place to stay for a little weekend getaway. My girlfriends and I had a blast, great kitchen and the beds were comfy. The house was also very clean. Only problem we faced was the steep hill to get down to the house because it was extremely icy. Definitely recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle (snow tires will not cut it). I would highly recommend this property and the owners were very friendly and easy to contact.

This was a great place to start the new year and we hope to go back another time soon!

    We were blessed with a picture perfect fall weekend. The house was as described, which fit our small group perfectly. Clean, safe & comfortable. Only down side for us was I was in a walking boot & crutches so making it down to the fire pit and dock happened only once. But that did not keep us from having a fabulous time. Thank you for sharing your beautiful property.

    This location was gorgeous and so well located - just a quick 15 minute drive into the nearby towns. The lake front is amazing and so scenic, and the house itself was beautiful and sparkling clean. We would love to come back! One note - the driveway is very steep, so cars low to the ground might have some difficulty getting in and out, but not a big deal otherwise!

    This is a lovely home, and appeared exactly as you see in the pictures. Loved being right on the lake, and my husband enjoyed walking out on the dock every morning with his coffee and casting out a line. The fire pit outside by the lake was nice to sit at on the chilly evenings. Waking up to the sound of the water and the beautiful view of the lake was wonderful, and sunsets over the lake are truly magical. We did find the property to be a bit hilly and uneven, and the driveway was a bit steep. The front bedroom could use a dresser for clothes storage. We would definitely recommend staying here, and we hope to go back again some day.

    We fell in love with this house and Lake Owasco! Our family had the most amazing vacation during our week-long stay on Waters Edge! The house is beautiful and so comfortable. Everything you need is there and the owners were wonderful communicating with us. The kids loved the dock and kayak. We rented a pontoon boat from Owasco Marine and had the best day out on the lake. The lake is spectacular and the sunsets from the house are beautiful. We loved the fire pit and making s’mores while enjoying the views. The turquoise water of Lake Owasco is amazing and the water was the perfect temperature for swimming all day and sometimes at night! We loved this property and location so much we already booked again for next year!

    This is a beautiful home on Owasco Lake, owners are great to work with! The home had everything we needed. Our biggest concern was the landscape. The house is on a hillside. The driveway is very steep. The yard is on a grade that made it difficult for our 20 month old granddaughter to play on. It is a great home for adults or a family with children who are a little older.

    House is just as advertised. Modern and very clean. Enjoyed the beautiful clear water of the lake. Driveway is a bit steep and could be challenging for older people. Location is great, within walking to Tom Thumbs ice cream. Had read in previous reviews the beds could be hard. Ours was fine. My son's bed was hard. We looked for the pillow top in the closet but it was locked. Luckily he is young and has a good back. The sofa in the living room is uncomfortable as the cushions do not stay put. Not really a problem as we were outdoors enjoying the lake. The owners are very nice. We almost had to cancel due to Covid and they were extremely gracious. Would highly recommend. Enjoyed our stay.

    We truly enjoyed our week at this property which is tastefully decorated and kitchen items fairly well stocked. Minor improvement suggestions would be: Bedrooms: Mirrors on back of bedroom closet doors would lessen bathroom wait time if over 4 people getting ready; Kitchen: Larger kitchen serving spoon(s), fork(s), a mixer and deep mixing bowl. Living Room Seating: A cushioned storage ottoman and bean bag chairs that could be stored in closet and brought out for rainy day use. (The dining table bench was not comfortable for TV viewing for very long) These are just suggestions as we had 4 days of rain during our stay. The house is absolutely beautiful and we thank you for the comfortable bed toppers. We brought our hammock from home and rented 2 additional kayaks for our large family.

    New Fingerlakes Lakehouse is a gem. It's spacious and well-equipped. The bedrooms are roomy and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare your own meals, and there is a large gas grill outside. Grocery stores are nearby. The location is perfect. The views from the east shore of Owasco Lake are stunning, especially at sunset time. The lake shore is just a few steps down the hill in the back which makes access to boating and swimming easy.. There is a dock for fishing. A two-person kayak is on site, and other water craft can be rented from Owasco Paddles, which is located nearby, and they deliver. The parking area is steep and on the small side, but we were able to accommodate two SUV's with a little practice. Overall, a great experience.

    Wedding guests weekend stay

    Submitted Jul 7, 2019

    The house was very modern, clean and delivered as advertised. Although we were out a lot for wedding events, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The kids took advantage of the lake dock and used the kayak to travel across the lake, which was so fun! Because the temperature was over 90 degrees, the one-zone air conditioning was an issue for the second floor rooms. There was a good 7 degree difference between the upstairs and the downstairs, which made it difficult to keep the upstairs cool without making the first floor freezing. Also, as the other reviews said, the beds were hard, but one bed did have a mattress topper that helped. It would be great if those were available in all the rooms! Overall, we would love to visit the finger lakes again and would recommend this house to all that were looking to visit also!

The couch...…..well...…..cushions always needing adjustments and very thin. You can feel the couch underneath. We weren't in the house enough to worry about that! Perfect weekend getaway! Vineyards were a little far but definitely not too far. Beautiful day spent at the vineyards! Would definitely recommend this house to anyone who wants to getaway, relax and recharge!

    This home really exceeded our expectations. It was impeccable and the accommodations were most suitable. Everything you needed was there. I would recommend sharpening the knives in the block for families who enjoy cooking and having washcloths available instead of hand towels for showering. It would have been nice to have had a paved driveway. It was difficult to manage in the rain with elderly people on the gravel with a slightly sloped driveway. Overall none of these suggestions should deter your decision. You will not be disappointed and there is no need to search for a better house because there are none😊�

    We rented the house for a girl’s weekend. The house is right on the water with beautiful views. We loved how new and clean everything was. The owners were accommodating and flexible. The house had all the essentials! Our only critique is the couch. Because of the floors, it slid all over the place and the pillows kept sliding everywhere! With six of us, it was uncomfortable as a few of us had to sit at the kitchen table. The “fireplace”is plug in and electric. It was fine, just not what we expected. However, everything else was excellent and we are already discussing a return visit!

    The house is new and a great location. However, the beds and sofa were definitely uncomfortable. Unfortunately, the mattresses were in plastic covers too. One of the couples had to leave due to the mattress conditions. The house was well stocked with kitchen items and was very clean. If the beds and sofa were upgraded, it would be a perfect rental.

    Graduation Vacation and Family Reunion

    4/5 Stayed May 24, 2018
    Submitted May 30, 2018

    Sought out alternative lodging after being faced with ridiculous prices for hotel rooms in Ithaca for Cornell graduation and our multi-generational group was so happy that we decided to do so! Although almost an hour away from Ithaca, the drive was easy and scenic. The house was new and clean with inviting views of Lake Owasco. The kitchen was well stock with cookware, cutlery, plates, cups and glasses. The beds were comfortable, numerous hangars available in the closets and there were plenty of good quality towels. The windows were easy to open and screened which allowed us to enjoy fresh air when we wanted. The central a/c and heat worked fine, too. The BBQ worked well and was of ample size encouraging several uses throughout our stay. We enjoyed kayaking, fly fishing from the dock and relaxing in the shade of the trees on the the back lawn. We were, however, cautious about the driveway which is steep and made of gravel and therefore a bit challenging for cars low to the ground. There are also no handrails on any of the stairs by the front door or side porch nor on the stone steps leading to the lake which could be challenging for older folks. During both the booking process and while we were on site, the owners were immediately responsive to our questions and additional requests. I wish we could have stayed for a few more days!

    Loved it! Great property:)

    We stayed at the lake house for two days with our family for graduation. The house was roomy enough for 16 people to have brunch and enjoy both the inside and outside of the house. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare and serve everyone. The sofa was comfortable and showers were excellent. The reason that we did not give the property five stars was that the beds were VERY hard and our group which ranged from 17-74 did not sleep well. The grandparents had to move to a hotel on the second night while the rest of us dealt with an uncomfortable sleep. Which increased the cost of our accommodations unexpectedly. I would recommend memory foam toppers for each bed! It would greatly improve the comfort of each bed and we all would have slept better. The lake is beautiful as is the surrounding area. We would visit again, if the beds were more comfortable.

    Our stay went very smoothly. The electronic combination lock was easy to use and very convenient. The house is tastefully furnished with ample towels and the necessary kitchen items. Leslie and Todd were very responsive to our communications. The house is laid out well for a family. The bedroom downstairs has an attached bath which is also a powder room in a divided Jack and Jill fashion. Upstairs there are two bedrooms that share a bath. One room has a double bed and a set of bunk beds and the other a queen. All the bedrooms are large and the closets are generous. The house was spotlessly clean, the appliances newer and well maintained and the laundry facilities were appreciated. There is a double garage which was so nice as we used it to pack up in the rain! The setting couldn't be better. The view from the multiple windows in the combination family/dining/kitchen was fabulous. There was lawn space for running around. It was cold so we didn't spend much time outside although we did enjoy some sheltered views from the porch with a steaming cup of coffee. And of course Tom Thumb ice cream is at the end of the street! All in all we had a terrific time and would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and family. Thanks Leslie and Todd!!!

    The house was very convenient and Todd and Leslie were very good to work with. The view was great. Our only issues were that the beds were very hard and two of our party had to leave a day early because of it. Also the couch was a bit of a problem.

    I stayed here for a weekend this year and it was beautiful weather. We did not get to spend too much time at the house but it was clean and had most items you need. They had toilet paper and small essentials which was REALLY helpful as we weren't spending much time at the house with my friends wedding going on. Only recommendation I made was keeping a hair dryer in the house to help out us women who don't travel with one! There is a nice dock on the water which was nice. Leslie & Todd were very helpful when I asked if we could get in the house earlier due to wedding times. Thanks so much and I hope everyone else enjoys the place as much as we did!

    We spent a very pleasant Girls' Getaway weekend at the Owasco lake house. It was great. The house is lovely, spacious and spotlessly clean. It has a very open floor plan, very comfortable beds and great towels. The lake is a short downhill away with stairs and a lit path. The owners were great to work with. They had the fire pit set up with kindling and wood for a fire, and they purchased extra outside chairs for our group of seven. We enjoyed sitting outside at the lake on a late summer weekend, and also ventured into Skaneatlas for some shopping. Fun!

    If you’re looking for a place to unwind from a busy working schedule, then this is the place for you. My absolute favourite part was sitting on the dock, sipping a glass of wine with my family, and watching the sun go down. Perfect. Now to the house. It was spotless and comfortable. It had everything you needed at your fingertips. The views of the lake from the living room and above bedroom were spectacular. I couldn’t fault the house at all. The outside space was great. What was the icing on the cake was the 2 person kayak. I had never been kayaking before, so it was an experience rowing out in the middle of the lake and just floating there for a while. Any troubles you may feel will wash away with the tide of the lake. Sorry, couldn’t help but slip that one in. Todd and Leslie were exceptional hosts. Any queries we had were dealt with in a very timely manner. We were fortunate to meet Todd after a couple of days and he was very helpful and friendly. Fantastic hosts all round. On top of that were the neighbours. They were also very friendly and helpful with any questions we may have had. All in all, I would highly recommend this quaint house by the lake. It’s in a great spot where the local shops for groceries are just a short ten minute drive away. Just a word to the wise, if you veer off Owasco Street onto the little roads, watch the deer. Especially at Twilight heading into the night. We met a few a couple of times on the road, so please be careful. So, final words. I would highly recommend. I have family living out there, so we will be back at some stage. I will be counting down the days until that happens.

    Enjoyed our stay at this new house on Owasco Lake. The accommodations were in great shape, the kitchen was fully equipped and we prepared the majority of our meals there during our stay. Owner was punctual, courteous and conscientious - promptly returning our calls when we had a question or two. Since the home is so new, there are a few more touches that need to be added (e.g. a more robust curtain for the window in the downstairs bedroom, hanger rod in the laundry room, etc.). Those are nits. Overall, the place was fabulous and we would definitely stay there again.
