Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Erieville - The Dam House

4 BD, 2 full Bth, sleeps 12

Relax in our lovely waterfront vacation home (directly on the water) located on Tuscarora Lake. The home is situated on 2 acres in the picturesque community of Erieville with waterfront and your own dock. Excellent swimming location with little to no weeds. The property is located within; 40 minutes of Syracuse, 10 minutes of Cazenovia, 20 minutes of historical Bouckville, and 15 minutes of Colgate University. Great for Graduation! This home has been newly renovated to provide you with a clean and comfortable vacation. It features four bedrooms, full kitchen/dinette, living room, two full bathrooms, and laundry. The deck provides an excellent place for family barbeque's or just sit back for a relaxing siesta. Fish right off the dock in one of the top walleye and bass lakes in Central New York. Tour the lake in the kayak, float on the water’s edge with the raft. Call today to book this house for a vacation to remember for years to come.

House Location: The house is located directly on Tuscarora Lake. The homepage rental picture was taken from the lake. There is a large backyard for kids and adults to play games, etc. Lots of privacy. You only have neighbors on the north side of the house but there is a garage and hedgerow separating the rental house and the neighbor's house. Notice: Homepage picture, on the right is a stone parking area which is on the left of the garage. On the right of the garage is another stone parking area, then lawn, hedgerow, then the neighbors lawn.

Swimming: You'll find the best swimming at the dock. NO weeds or muck, rocky bottom. Clear water without zebra mussels. We have one of the only remaining lakes in NYS without weeds and zebra mussel problems.

Special Features: Great location for families attending Caz, Colgate, Morrisville, and more near-by graduations. Enjoy our apple and pear trees in the late summer and fall. The water is warmest in Aug and Sept. After labor day, the boat traffic decreases. Although, boat traffic is generally low during weekdays. Tuscarora Restaurant (Monday is wing night) is within a short boat or car drive but can be accessed by foot. There is a dinning deck for eating outside.

Peaceful and serene lake house

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect for my family. The yard is very large and the neighbors are very nice. The lake is EXTREMELY clear and beautiful. The owners were great to work with and the location is in farm country in New York - very beautiful and serene. The town of Cazenovia is close (~5 miles) for the grocery store, etc. Cell reception was not the greatest and I think there may have been an issue with the wi-fi (might need to be re-set in the house) - but since we were on vacation no one needed it so we didn't mind. Overall we enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home on this lake.

Lots of space, comfortable and clean, great location

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for me, my five children, and our dog. Lots of space, comfortable accommodations, and a fantastic lake for fishing and boating. This lake is less congested than others we've been to, and all of the people were very friendly. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Great home for family vacation - terrific yard, beautiful lake and wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property for a family traveling with young children! It's a very spacious home with a wonderful layout and a terrific deck. It has all the offerings a family would need - great yard for the kids to run around or pick pears from the pear trees and games to play, satellite dish for watching sports (go Red Sox and Patriots - didn't miss either game!) and a washer & dryer that is a must for every traveling mom! The lake is beautiful and an easy walk across the yard. There was a row boat and canoe available although we didn't use them since we had our own. We did see a seaplane land on the lake while we were out in the canoe - that was an unexpected treat!! There is very little background light so the night sky was amazing - we saw two shooting stars. The owners - Mark and Stacia were terrific to work with and very accommodating (especially since we booked the house with one week notice). We would stay here again and recommend the property.
