This four-bedroom lakeshore getaway’s real claim to fame is its ideal location — on the water, amid lovely trees and foliage, situated on a private double-lot. The home’s lush, sprawling, lawn stretches in all directions. Steps leading to the beach are wide for easy climbing, and number only about 15. Awaiting below are a private dock and boat launch, where guests can swim, fish, sunbathe or set out to explore the lake. The fishing boat is available for use as an amenity and 2 kayaks are available for a modest additional rental fee.
There is a small boat house on the property, well-stocked with beach chairs and umbrella, a paddle board and a 14-foot row boat, all free for guests to use onsite. This cottage sits on a double lot, providing plenty of off-street parking space for boats, trailers or extra vehicles. The large grounds and beautiful view also provide a great opportunity for large get-togethers such as graduation parties, reunions, or weddings.
The cottage itself is located only four miles from the village of Skaneateles, where visitors will find a thriving local lakeside community with plenty of specialty shops, eateries and upscale restaurants, in an abundance of choices to meet all tastes and budgets.

My name is Karen and I am local manager of the lovely cottage here in Skaneateles. My father, retired physician, purchased this home in the 1960s and has lovingly cared for, maintained, and developed it over the years. Though he is now in his 90s, he continues to be very active and "hands on", having just built a large storage shed single-handedly, on his property in Virginia! We welcome you to come and explore the tremendous "jewel" known as the Finger Lakes Region in Central New York. Allow us to guide you to a most memorable vacation experience!
