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!

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.

See ya next year!

  • 5 of 5

This is not only a beautiful lake house, but it is a beautiful piece of property that is decorated wonderfully. My family loved every moment of staying in this warm and cozy home. It did not matter to my children that is was not really warm enough to go in the lake, they did anyway. Especially when one of them "lost" their balance on one of the paddle boards and "accidentally" fell in. Even the one day it rained, there they were at the end of the dock fishing.

I would recommend this home to everyone looking, as I was, to find a rental on the lake in this area. Close to everything you could possibly need. The owners go above and beyond providing everything you did not think of to make your stay a little better. The ease of getting in touch with the owners whenever a question arose prior to going and while I was there is a true reflection of their professionalism and dedication to make sure you have a wonderful stay.

We WILL see you next year. My children already have it ALL figured out. Thank you again!

Utterly AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect from the view to the wonderful experience. My family, including my cat, loved everything about this wonderful property. I do not know why anyone would stay anywhere else if this property was available. Stay once and you will be hooked.

Lisa and family,

Thank you for this wonderful time, and my family said we will see you next year.
