About Richard Moscarito

We current reside in Chittenango, NY. We have been married for 18 years and have a beautiful son. We try to spend as much time as our schedule permits at our beautiful lakefront vacation home.

Why Richard Moscarito chose Auburn

We absolutely love the finger lakes region and have always wanted to purchase a second home in this area. We have many friends in the Skaneateles/Auburn area and when we found this home we fell in love with its breathtaking views, location and rich history.

What makes this house unique

Everyday feels like a vacation! We love to just sit on the deck or by the fire. We enjoy fishing, swimming, boating, golfing, wine tours and shopping and dining in Auburn and Skaneateles.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful time at your beautiful home. We enjoyed the Fall colors and the Cayuga Wine Trail, and we had an opportunity to visit with family in CNY. Thanks so much for making us feel so welcomed and for providing for our every need.

A perfect setting for our Thanksgiving holiday.

  • 5 of 5

My times exploring the Finger Lakes region while growing up in New York provide some of my fondest memories of those years. As a teen I was certain I would someday have a beautiful house along one of those lakes. As I grew older a military career took me and my family in other directions and the house by the lake was a distant memory. Recently retired after 31 years in the Army, living near Seattle, somehow those memories came rushing back. I was planning a trip to New York to visit family, Thanksgiving was approaching, and the Finger Lakes where calling. I began searching options and eventually found this house, it seemed perfect. Four generations, my elderly mother, my wife and I, our daughter, son-in-law, and three grandchildren. I was hoping for a beautiful house in a beautiful location that would accommodate us for our Thanksgiving holiday and that's exactly what I found. It truly was perfect for us in every way. Thanksgiving, so of course we'd be cooking. The kitchen was beautiful, well appointed, and family friendly with a big island for seating to visit while other's cooked. The dining room to eat our meals was just as beautiful and a perfect size. The family room was very cozy with a fire place and plenty of seating for everyone. And in every room, an amazing lake view. The three bedrooms on the second floor again were a perfect fit for our family. It was my wife's first trip to the area, after visiting nearby areas such as wineries to the West and Skaneateles to the East, she didn't want to leave.

We were also very happy with how clean the house was and the ample parking.

The house also provides wonderful opportunities to enjoy activities on the lake that we didn't take advantage of because of season, but a summer return is definitely in our future.

We loved our stay here!

Wonderful weekend at beautiful house on lake

We had a wonderful weekend at this beautiful house. The house is well stocked and has everything you need. It is also very clean and well maintained. The location and views were fantastic. The boathouse bar was an added treat. We highly recommend this place.

Great Place with Great Views!

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed before with Fingerlakes Luxury, we knew what to expect. The house was perfect in every sense: clean, comfortable, great view. The added bonus was the amazing backyard and deck. The kids had so much fun throwing rocks into the lake, fishing, and feed the ducks. Will be back, for sure.

Great weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

Clean, spacious house with all the amenities. Waterfront is beautiful. Perfect for the four of us on our October getaway. Unfortunately the leaves were just starting to change so we missed out on the peak fall foliage. Lots to do in the area. Try Balloons Restaurant in Auburn. Great food and service.

The wonderful finger lakes region offers vacationers a wide variety of activities. The home is located on the eastern side of Owasco Lake and is close to Auburn and Skaneateles. Emerson Park and the Merry Go Round Playhouse are also within walking distance to the home. There is also an upcoming theater district in the downtown Auburn area that will offer theater goers some much needed diversity. The beautiful town of Skaneateles is only a short 4 mile drive away. There are wonderful shops and restaurants in the village of Skaneateles. The world famous Mackenzie Childs factory is also only a short drive to the beautiful town of Aurora. Let's not forget about the nationally acclaimed wine trails that surround the finger lakes as well.

Other Activities: Shopping, Kayaking, Boating, Cross Country Skiing, Snowboarding, Snowmobiling, Wildlife Viewing, Health/Beauty Spa, Miniature Golf
