Beautiful lake, spacious house

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time with my family (6 adults, 3 young children). The house looked consistent with the pictures, although they do not do the lake and dock justice. While the living spaces were overall clean, there was dust on top of every bookshelf/tv/unused surface, and there were cobwebs in every corner. An easy fix!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I returned to this house for the second time. The house provides the opportunity for a relaxing and comfortable family vacation. The huge yard and the lakefront access can’t be beat. Brian is a great host who responds to questions quickly. We’d love to come back again next year.

Good but needed some tweeking.

  • 3 of 5

The house was adequate, the location, deck and the lake-front were wonderful. Our stay was enjoyable. There were serious electrical problems in the Master Suite; the bathroom vanity lights and the only outlet did not work. The owner was notified, but there was no repair. The cupboards and storage areas needed a serious cleaning out; there were old canned goods and packaged foods as well as left-over items from previous guests. A set of written instructions would have been helpful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We have since fixed the electrical problems in the master bath. There was a GFI outlet issue that required a licensed electrician. A thorough cleaning of the cupboards is in order. We are also working on written instructions for guests.

Our son, his wife, and our grandson from Las Vegas spent the week with our daughter and her family.

  • 5 of 5

The six adults and three children had plenty of room in the bedrooms, kitchen, dinning room, and living room. With a deck right outside the house and another down by the lake we had plenty of room to spread out and relax. The fire pit and deck on the lake made a ideal place to watch beautiful sunsets. We arrived July 14th to temperatures in the 90’s and again on Sunday. We could have used some AC, but fortunately on Monday it settled into the 80’s for the rest of the week. The house is 5 miles from the village which makes it very convenient to go shopping or take a boat tour on Skaneateles Lake. The back yard is large enough to play games on and the three grandchildren and adults had a grand time acting like children! Brian Davis was always available and attentive to all of our needs. There is plenty of parking of yourself and guests. Just a very nice place to go to relax and create lasting memories.

We really enjoyed our time at Brian’s cottage. He made sure we were set with all we needed. The cottage is fully stocked for everything you would need. Great place to gather family for a relaxing time on the lake. Thanks for the memories!!
