Fun family lake vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great wrap around porch. Cabin was clean and cozy. Air conditioning was a definite plus. It was fun to roast marshmallows over the fire pit.

We had a great vacation! Our kids and grandkids enjoyed the row boat and paddle boat and swimming. Campfires and somores we’re enjoyed! The cottage was very clean and everything we needed was there! Awesome sunsets and very relaxing!! There are great restaurants and many sites if you want to leave camp and explore. Cottage was depicted very accurate in the description. We felt right at home. Frank and Anne Marie were great hosts!

Another great vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Camp Onondaga has become an annual summer vacation spot!

With three stays under our belt, we continue to find new things to appreciate and enjoy about the cottage as well as the surrounding area.

Frank & Ann have been very welcoming and accommodating throughout our time at the camp. They also are committed to preserving the historic charm of the cottage and the maintenance of the grounds (which is a lot of work) so hats off to them!!

While there, my kids choose to put down the iPhone/iPad in favor of a fishing rod, ball & bat or even cards / board games etc; which is amazing!-] I love how they have become closer and bonded during those activities.

We had a wonderful time at the cottage.

  • 4 of 5

Cute, clean, perfect mid-Finger Lakes location. Unbelievable sunsets! Only issue is stairs to bunk room. Pics don’t really give perspective of just how steep they are.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review of our lovely lake cottage. It was our pleasure to host you, and we are so glad that you had such a wonderful time during your stay. We apologize that you were surprised by the angle of the stairs that lead up to the loft bedroom, but happy that all turned out well and that you were able to negotiate them without any problems. We look forward to seeing you again.

A cozy vintage cottage !

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I had a great time at this lakefront cottage. It was airy, spacious and very accommodating to many of our needs. The space was very comfortable,clean and very functional. The plum tree, water toys,fire pit complete the great outdoor experience of up close and personal with nature. I highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for relaxation ,peace and tranquility. Last,my dog Bachie loved the spacious grass to run and play.

Beautiful Home, made wonderful memories

  • 5 of 5

Frank and Ann Marie were wonderful hosts. They brought over information about the meteor shower so we could look for them. The home is lovely, and all redone in knotty pine. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything we could ever want to cook with. 5 out of 5 stars says it all. Easy boat access down the road. Parking for guests or family for dinner. Everything was clean and bright. Loved the outdoor fridge for more food or easy access to drinks while sitting by the large fire pit. Thank you Frank and Ann Marie, for sharing a week with us.
