About Lisa Sheldon

Our beautiful family lives in Amherst, Ohio & remains to be crazy, with four kids, 18,17,15 & 13, along with 2 jobs, 2 dogs, Dakota-6 (Doberman), Zeus-4 (Golden Retriever) & Yoshi (Macaw). I'm sure everyone can relate, minus the MACAW!!!!!!!

Lisa Sheldon purchased this house in 2013

Why Lisa Sheldon chose New York

We purchased this property to relax, slow down & truly enjoy what the outdoors have to offer, both young & old!

It is also, in honor of my father Dennis (64), who lost his life to lung cancer in 2011. He taught,us,how to hunt,fish,boat,shoot,camp & slow down. It's what, we want to leave, as our LEGACY!

What makes this house unique

This lake house offers the rustic wilderness feel, along with outdoor SUN & FUN----We hope you enjoy, as much as we do!

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay here and it was even better than the first time. The cabin literally feels like home and is supplied with anything you might need during your stay. The fire pit is a beauatiful addition!

This is an AWESOME place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I picked this place to stay for a small bachelor party and it was everything we hoped for and more! Very clean and ample space both inside and outside to hang out and relax. Our only regret was that we didn't stay longer to enjoy the house and the property even more! We had such a good time that we're already talking about renting the same property next year for a little reunion.

Lastly, I'd like to say thanks the Sheldon's (the property owner) for their great communication through the booking process. Thank you for everything!

Great Lake house and owners!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about what a good experience we had at this lake house. We have three kids and use VRBO a lot - this is one of the best experiences we have had! The house is very well stocked with common supplies you need - from toilet paper, to spices and even shampoos and conditioner in the showers. We were there before the summer season but there is so much the owners provide to have a great week on Chautauqua Lake. This is the first time we were able to bring our dog with us and it was so nice to be able to have him tag along and be on vacation too. The owners were very easy to work with and responsive. Thank you to the Sheldon family for sharing their home!

Owner's Response: Thanks Stacey & family, We're so glad, you, the kids and Norman had such a wonderful time---It's always special when you can bring your (pet) children on vacation-sometime they have more FUN than the people!!!! We also appreciate the kind words-we always try to make your vacation with us special, if we can!! We hope to see you again in the future. Scott & Lisa Sheldon

Perfect Girls Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at the lake house. When they say everything is provided, they really mean EVERYTHING. From all of the outdoor activities to the indoor amenities, it definitely felt like a home away from home for a few days. The weather was perfect, the leaves were all changing. Very close to Southern Tier. (Book your tour early! We were too late!) We really couldn't have asked for a better weekend. We highly recommend renting. Can't wait to go back!

Perfect couples weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and 3 other couples spent a weekend here and it was beautiful. This home is so warm and cozy - you feel right at home as soon as you walk in the door. The owners have provided every amenity you can imagine plus more- the property is gorgeous. We went in the fall so it was a little chilly and rainy but we still enjoyed the spectacular views and the fire pit outside - the PATIO is AMAZING!! The owners were so friendly and helpful - whenever I had a question I got a response within a few hours. THis was my first time using VRBO and I was more than impressed with this home and the owners - the only complaint I had was we had to leave!

Thank you Lisa & Scott for helping us make lasting memories with special friends!

Great value, dog-friendly and kayak-ready!

  • 5 of 5

This house offers lots of outdoor sitting spaces, good privacy from the neighbors, and just about everything you would need on vacation. We kayaked every single day, biked to Jamestown, dined in Bemus Point, and hiked at Panama Rocks. The house is well-stocked with water toys, firewood, bug spray, beach towels, kitchen supplies, and even dog treats, bowls and bed. The owners are easy to reach by text for any questions. The accommodations are clean, comfortable and good for a small group.
