About Property Manager
Vicky and I currently live in the Washington DC area where I work as a Project Manager for a mechanical contractor. We are originally from the area (Marcellus) and plan to have our summer retirement home here in Sylvan Beach. This location is close to our two grandchildren and their parents and the beach is a great draw. We love the community and the friendly people and the great local restaurants.
Property Manager purchased this House in 2017
Why Property Manager chose Sylvan Beach
Sylvan Beach is a trip back in time to small town America. Friendly people, safe streets, the beach and small amusement park bring me back to the 1960's in central New York. Our home is just far enough away from the beachfront to be a quiet getaway but if you want to be where the action is it is literally a two minute walk straight up the street.
What makes this House unique
Modern, spacious, and comfortable, our lake house is a cut above most of the local weekly rental properties. Central air conditioning, laundry, gas fireplace, gas and charcoal grills, fire pit, a fenced back yard, bikes and board games make it a really enjoyable spot.

Great for Family Vacation
We were very pleased with Sylvan Beach home as it was very comfortable, cosy and in a quiet area close to the beach and had a fantastic 10 days there. Plenty of space for a family. The kitchen is well equipped and very convenient if you choose to cook. It is also within walking distance of the beach (gorgeous sun sets over the lake), shops and numerous restaurants. Our favourite was Willie's Chop Shop for the BBQ meat/2 sides and the Caesar Salad is delicious. It was very appreciated to return to a calm and quiet home after busy days travelling and sight seeing. As we are from UK we visited Niagara Falls whilst there which was spectacular. On a rainy day we also paid a visit to Fort Stanwix in Rome and Rome Historical Society & Museum. The tour guide in Fort Stanwix is very knowledgeable and we found the history of the Fort so interesting. He informed us as it is out of the way the visitors are declining in numbers so please visit if you are in the area. The museum is very varied and interesting too and free entry but donations accepted.
Thank you Bill and Vicky. Great Vacation!
So close to the beach!
Sylvan Beach is a fun place to be and this cottage has all the comforts of home and only a couple of blocks from the beach! From board games to cable TV, there’s always something to do if the weather doesn’t allow a visit to the lakeshore. We were very pleased with our stay. There’s a large fenced in yard with a grill, that and a full sized kitchen give you lots of opportunities for cooking but if you prefer eating out, you’re real close to all the wonderful restaurants the Beach has to offer! This is a great place to spend your vacation!
Thank you for the great review.
Everything was great! The house is amazing! A lot of space,deck and free kayaks!!! Definitely will recommend it to my friends!
Spacious and Comfy
This is a comfortable vacation home in a charming lake community. The kitchen had everything we needed. The beds and bedrooms were clean and comfortable. Plenty of extra blankets are provided, towels, too. The two full baths are clean and spacious. Our small dog also enjoyed the house. Father and son used the kayaks on the lake. (They were a little too heavy to carry to the nearby beach; we recommend bringing straps or cords to tie them to your car.) The owners are super responsive via the in app messenger or telephone. Numerous board and card games are available for when you want to stay in. We used the gas grill and outdoor fire pit, both in the large backyard. The front porch was a relaxing place to sit. Cable TV and Wi-Fi were welcome amenities. We recommend this vacation rental.
Jennifer, thanks for the great review. We hope you will come back soon.

Comfortable stay in charming Sylvan Beach on beautiful Oneida Lake
We loved our stay here! The house was very clean, comfortable and well-outfitted, the neighborhood was calm and quiet, and everyone in town was very friendly. Even though there was plenty to do in Sylvan Beach (restaurants, mini golf, boating, swimming, amusement park), our simple strolls from one end of the town to the other and back with our dog were hard to beat. If you are planning to swim in gorgeous Oneida Lake, you may want to call nearby Verona Beach State Park to see whether the waters have tested positive for blue algae. On our first day, we called over and the waters had tested positive so we went to Delta Lake (30 minutes away) to swim and boat. The next day, after speaking with several locals, some of whom give no mind to the blue algae, we took our chances and braved Oneida’s waters...and we were fine. And a few days later, the waters tested negative again. Oneida Lake is truly special—the biggest lake in New York, water warm as bath water, and the most beautiful sunsets. It is not to be missed! We also enjoyed What’s the Scoop ice cream, the Pancake House, and the Canal View Cafe, right on the famous Erie Canal. The town was celebrating the Canal the weekend we were there, so there was lots of live music and other entertainment as well as vendors lining the streets and a fireworks show at night. It seems that Sylvan Beach has something fun going on every weekend. Truly, we fell in love with this town and this lake, and really hope we get the chance to come back! Thank you, William and Vicky, for opening up your house to us, and for answering all our questions in a timely manner.
Lydia, thank you for the wonderful review. We hope you will consider staying with us again soon.
Excellent Value and Superb Amenities Make This Property Extremely Attractive
The home in Sylvan Beach that we rented for a week in July, 2018 greatly exceeded our expectations. It was very clean and conveniently located within walking distance of the beach, shopping and restaurants. The amenities included three large bedrooms,a spacious living room, an updated kitchen, a game room with a ping pong table, two kayaks and a huge backyard. My family of four really enjoyed our stay at this location and highly recommend it since it was very reasonably priced when compared to other properties in the area.
Tom, Thank you for the review. We love our lake house and love to share it with others when we can’t be there. Come back soon.
