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.

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.
Had a great stay at Michele’s A-frame house on Owasco lake. The rooms seem larger than the pictures and the place expanded nicely to accommodate my mother’s 96th birthday weekend. This is a good choice for elderly people since there is only one step into the house and one step to the patio facing the lake. Plenty of outdoor chairs for the patio and the level yard was great for the toddlers. It rained quite a bit during our weekend but the ping pong table saved the day. The open concept living room dining and kitchen area made for a great family experience. And the large kitchen was an extra bonus. Thanks so much for a lovely retreat.
Lovely Lake house!!
Our family absolutely loved this lake house! It’s the one we have been looking for, for many years. We will definitely be going back for our lake vacations. Shelly was wonderful to work with... very kind and accommodating. Thank you!! We cannot wait for next year.
Glad to welcome you back, you were great guests, easy to accommodate, and respectful of our lake house. Come back soon!
Great family fun at the Gem of Owasco Lake
We did a family vacation week at this beautiful home & it really is the best location on Owasco Lake. Everyone (ages 5-75) was smitten . The house was roomy, clean, well furnished & very comfortable. Outside was perfect. Kids had plenty of room to play, fish off the dock, swim, etc. Adults could join the kids, plus kayak or just hang out on the patio or lawn, & a firepit for night time relaxation around the fire. Michelle, the owner we dealt with was awesome. Readily available, accommodating & very nice. If you're looking for a Lake House that has it all this is the one!
Hi G & J,
So glad your family enjoyed all that our Brook Hollow hideaway has to offer. You were great guests, responsible and also easy to accomodate.
You’re welcome any time there’s availability.
Hopefully you’ll come back soon—long weekends in the Fall are spectacular!
