About Michelle Iaia
This is a family home built in 1971, that has been passed down for three generations. Modernized and lovingly maintained, this house features new and heirloom furniture. The large kitchen was designed for a first generation Italian cook -- then owner of P & R Macaroni Products. Pasquelina Procino Rossi was famous for her Sunday sauce and pasta dinners that served families, friends and factory workers. Although her grandchildren and great grandchildren have moved away, we still return as much as possible. Many fabulous meals and wonderful memories have been cooked up in this large kitchen ... we hope the same for you and your family and guests.
Why Michelle Iaia chose Auburn
This was THE FIRST A-FRAME to be built on Owasco Lake. It's open floor plan is perfect for family gatherings due to it's eat in-kitchen and Dining room. Oversized couches and chairs in the great room make for comfortable, leisurely living. View the 125 feet of lakefront from the kitchen, dining room, great room, and the loft. Also the lakeside deck offers great views as well as the ability to see what the kids are doing at the beach which is just a stone's throw away. If you are famliar w/ the finger lakes then you know that almost all the lakes are steep, hilly and rocky. My grandfather sought out this location because of its unusual terrain: grassy, flat and sandy. Even the bottom of the lake in Brook Hollow Cove is sandy and the water is usually calm. This was never a area of summer camps converted into year round homes, this was always a year round enclave, and the size of the homes and lots reflect that. It is a premiere property.
What makes this House unique
First floor master bedroom, adjoining master bath, plus private bedroom/den w/ futon, wireless. Fully stocked kitchen, heat/central air, washer/dryer, dishwasher/garbage disposal. The house is unique w/ open floor plan, first floor master bedroom and adjoining large bathroom; across the hall is a private bedroom/den with queen-sized futon. The location is the very best on Owasco Lake. One of the few sandy beaches, it's located on a sandy, warm cove where the water is generally calm even when the lake is rough. Great for kids and novice swimmers due to the water's gradual decline so they can swim out far in the shallow water.

I was very happy with everything on this property. We had nine family members staying here and it all went well. Michelle, the property manager was wonderful to work with...always got back to me in a timely manner. The kids loved the lake...skipping stones, playing football, games and the ping pong table. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this property.
The location was great! Wonderful property right on the lake. Owner was great at communicating.
Honey away from home
The house had everything we needed or wanted. Room for the kids to play, inside and outside. walk into the water to swim, a fire pit for our evening campfires, close to all our activities. In short, it was PERFECT !!! The owner was most gracious and always available to answer our questions. Can’t wait to go back !!
We love having guests who love our home & take care of it.
You were great guests and we appreciate how cooperative you were with the installation of a new dishwasher.
Also the extra effort your family made when closing up was not expected and most appreciated.
Hoping for an even better experience when you return again to our Brook Hollow hideaway. Come back soon.

Perfect Family Vacation
Located directly on Lake Owasco with its own private dock and huge yard. We spent nearly every waking hour in the kayaks, lounging on the dock, and playing games in the yard. When we were hungry we either grilled (with the grill provided) or the spacious kitchen. It had everything to make us feel like home: towels (beach and regular), dishes, pans, cleaning supplies, you name it. Sadly we had one rainy day. But it was fine because we just played ping pong and games (all provided) and were only 15 mins from a decent winery.
Though we had 7 people, it always felt like we had more than ample space.
A Perfect Vacation
This vacation spot was absolutely perfect for my immediate and extended family! The layout was open and it made life easy when it came to family gatherings. The lake was beautiful - the water warm and camp fires were the best! Michelle could not have been more gracious and accommodating. I think we found our new favorite spot!!
Quaint, quiet, clean, peaceful, cozy, gorgeous. Would stay again. Family friendly. Plenty of room and beds for 8 people. Lake is beautiful and fun to swim in (clean and not too deep). Host was very communicative and accommodating.
Glad you and your friends appreciated the tranquility of our Brook Hollow Hideaway. You were great guests. Hopefully you’ll return to enjoy the florid fall colors and autumnal harvest.
Come back soon.
