My name is Chris Yantch. I am a lifelong resident of Auburn and have great memories of growing up on beautiful Owasco Lake. I named Chantelle Marie after my daughters, as Chantelle and Marie are their middle names. The love of my daughters and Owasco Lake has inspired me to build this lakeside home and share it with others. I hope for this to be a place where many will make new memories with their family and friends, just as I have.

The Chantelle Marie Lakehouse owns a unique and interesting history. Beginning its days as the Auburn Savings Bank located on Grant Avenue, the structure was acquired, dismantled and transported to be rebuilt in its current location by owner Christ Yantch. The integrity of the building still stands with original beams and woodwork.
Our mission at Chantelle Marie Lakehouse is to provide all of our guests with an atmosphere of tranquility. Our goal is to offer a truly unique environment where simple elegance and warm, comfortable hospitality are combined to create a truly memorable experience.
Chantelle Marie Celebration Hall! We have the perfect setting for your family and friends to gather and celebrate your special event. Our renovated barn with its rustic charm and relaxed surroundings sets the stage for a perfect celebration. The covered patio offers shelter and a beautiful view of the lake.
Our Celebration Hall is perfect for large events such as weddings. The natural surrounding that include an orchard, vineyard and large pond offer comfortable spaces and a special setting for your photographs. While celebrating with your family for your big event, stay right on the property at the Lakehouse!! How perfect!!
Great lake house on a very nice lake accommodated our large family (seven adults and 2 children) very nicely. Four large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and king size beds provided us with very nice sleeping arrangements with privacy. Especially nice was the main level open floor plan which included seating for everyone during meals and very comfortable living room furniture where everyone could just sit and talk -- while the children played in the background. Simply put -- a very large comfortable lakehouse with plenty of room for everyone in our group.
We enjoyed our stay very much. We were very surprised to see a Christmas tree up; that extra step was very thoughtful & perfect for us, since we were gathering for our Holiday celebration. Most attendants were displeased with the TV's not working in the individual bedrooms; but I wasn't there to have tv in our bedroom & most other places do not offer that, so it did not bother me. Was a little surprised at the washing machine issues, only because we were asked to put a load of our towels in the machine. One thing that would have been more helpful in the kitchen was a timer. I know you have timers on your phone, but since I did most of the cooking, I am not a person that keeps her phone on her 24/7. One cooking episode failed due to no timer (my phone wasn't near me after I set the timer!). Having even an old fashioned seperate ticking timer with a twist dial would have been great!! If all goes well with health, we will definitely plan the same next year!! Thanks!!
Lovely house, extraordinarily well stocked - with beautiful kitchen, appliances and tools.
Worked very well for 8 adults and two children with occasional visitors during the day.
Owner/agent was impressively available by phone and text (for minor logistics issues)
This was our 2nd time at the Lakehouse and it was an even better experience than our 1st.
This house and location was just perfect for our weeks stay in the Finger Lakes. Everything was as described on VRBO and we could not have been happier. We rented a boat and the dock worked out perfectly. The linens, towels and robes were so plush. The kitchen was so nicely appointed that we wanted for nothing. There were a few problems with bees that made their way into the house but other than that it was really an awesome week.
The manager of this property goes above and beyond to provide your every need before you even realize you need it...our family stayed at the property behind this A frame. It catered more to our specific needs as a family and the manager and owner were more than willing to accommodate. With this being our first lake house rental, we were not sure of what we would require. This property provided every single thing that we had lacked to bring....we wanted for nothing the entire trip. The property was exceptionally beautiful and inviting. Quiet. Clean. More than enough open space for our families to have privacy, yet cozy enough for us to gather around meals. The roof top allowed for us to lay back and watch shooting stars.....truly a vacation property we will long for every year:) The property was exceptional, but it's the people we met there that I will now call friends:)
We loved this house! Our family was here celebrating my daughters wedding just down the road at Springside Inn. There were adults and children sharing this house but we had ample room for privacy due to three floors of living area. Once in the bedrooms you couldn't hear the noise from the rest of the house. Everything was in working order, the sauna, steam shower and media room were a big hit!! The house was clean and well maintained. We had access to the lake across the road with a nice beach to swim and kayaks for our use. Water shoes are a must for walking around the beach area. It is a nice area for kids, they could walk out in the water a bit. Katie made it easy for check in and kept in contact throughout our stay to make sure all was well. There were plenty of dishes and glasses to use and a dishwasher to clean up after. Many kitchen appliances were on hand for our use, a blender, coffee maker, ice cube maker, large refrigerator and commercial size gas stove. Towels were provided for our use in each of the four full bathrooms. There were also two irons and an ironing board in the first floor laundry room along with a quality washer and dryer. All bedrooms had a king bed and in the two second story bedrooms there was a twin mattress in the closet to use. We LOVED this house and would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York!!

Check-in is @ 4pm, unless the property manager and renter discuss otherwise. The property manager will call the cell phone # provided to notify the guest if the house is ready earlier than 4pm. Check-out is @ 11 am. Please adhere to these times as we need time to clean and prepare the house for guests checking in after you. You have private use of your own dock and may rent a boat at Owasco Marine and dock your boat for as long as you are staying. Renters should bring their own beach towels, as the house only has hotel style bath towels. The house has four standard life vests, any additional vests that will be needed will be supplied by the guest. There are two kayaks with paddles and a row boat for the guest to use. The beach is stony, water shoes are a good idea. You can swim right off the shore or dock. Please no diving. The house has 6 sun bathing lounge chairs on the 2 floor party patio. There are 3 lounge chairs on the deck down by the water. There is patio furniture for dining and relaxing outside at the house, however, the guest should bring traveling fold up camp chairs for down by the water. The beach size depends on the water level of the lake. There is a gas station 4 miles north of the house for camp fire wood and there is a little fire pit on the ground level of the patio. Dogs are permitted with property manager's approval. Please discuss prior to your stay if you intend to bring a pet(s). There is Wifi, and Netflix, passwords are given on an information sheet inside the house. There is keypad on the front door for entering and locking the house. This is provided just before your stay. The kitchen is fully equipped, however, there always seems to be something specific each guest desires. Please discuss any special needs or accommodations with the property manager prior to your arrival so she can have the item(s) there for you. We aim to please :) Please alert the property manager of anything in the house that isn't functioning properly. Thanks!
