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!

Chatauqua Reunion Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Sheldon's beautiful home on the lake. We were able to entertain small groups of family and friends each day who live in the area, and they loved the home too. We want to stay there again. The pictures online are ''right on'' and even nicer in person. The Sheldon's are great hosts and they make sure that your time is ''the experience you hope for before your arrival there". Thank you. Steve & Vivien Meleen

Another Lovely Week in September

  • 5 of 5

Our second time spending a week at this perfect Lake rental get-away and once again we never wanted to leave. All amenities are provided. You just get to sit and enjoy the lake views and relax. The gas fire pit was a nice added touch this year. I have smoke allergies but this time I was able to join my family around the pit; telling stories, listening to music. Thank you.

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
