Needs a thorough cleaning.
Our group of 9 women rented the house for 3 days. Our biggest complaint was the fact that it was not clean. Yes, the linens were freshly laundered and beds made, and the bathrooms were clean (except for the lower level tub/shower which had spiders in it and a used bar of soap from a prior renter…ugh). However, dust and cobwebs are everywhere and grit/dirt in floor corners and on window sills. Pieces of cutlery in the kitchen drawers were not uniformly clean and had to be washed before use. Windows were really, really dirty -- upstairs and down -- so the view of the lake from inside was not what it should be. Outside, the upstairs deck and lower level patio had not been swept or hosed down in a long time. One cannot expect outdoor space to be pristine, but it was very apparent that the dirt, dead bugs, cobwebs and bird droppings -- and the windows -- had not been addressed in quite some time.
No fresh bath soap was in the bathrooms but we found 2 bars of bath soap in the linen closet. We suggest that if you have a large group, you bring soap, extra toilet paper and extra paper towels.
Also, we found ants in a kitchen cupboard and swarming bees on the deck (both of which can admittedly happen anywhere during summer). We reported these separately to the owner.
The dock extending out on the lake is a plus, but there is a good 3-ft gap between land and the dock, so one has to literally leap over the gap to get onto the dock. Dangerous, and not as shown in the photos online.
The home has 4 full bathrooms, which is the sole reason we selected this particular rental and paid a top-dollar price for it 4+ months in advance. Unfortunately, we were told 3 days before arrival that the shower in the 3rd floor bathroom could not be used and that the plumber was going to be working on regrouting it during the 5 hour turnover time while the house was being cleaned. However, there was no grouting work done that day (and it’s a plastic shower anyway with no discernable grout). We suspected perhaps there had been a leak problem or something, but never really found out. In any event, we honored the owner’s request and did not use the shower that we wanted and had paid for.
(just noticed the dates of stay on here are wrong...off by a day. We were there from 6/23-6/26/19)
Perfect for a big family!
This house is perfect for a big group. We were in town for SU graduation so my sons college friends really enjoyed the basement with the ping pong table and pool table. Having three floors was great so that the grandparents could separate from the wild kids . : ) the view is spectacular and I would love to see it when it’s warm. The host was very responsive during our stay as we did run into a few issues . My review if 4 stars rather than 5 because I think the house is a bit outdated and needs some sprucing up... bathrooms in particular. I communicated this all to the host... even sharing some of my tips as I run Short term rentals in Nashville. Would love to come back and visit after the house gets a makeover!! Thanks for a wonderful weekend .

Comfortable and cozy lake house!
Nine big guys stayed here with a lot of equipment for a bowling tournament in Syracuse and we never felt like we ran out of space. Very comfortable and cozy feel to this home. We all had a great time and would love to come back if the tournament ever goes back to Syracuse!
