The property was beautiful and had wonderful, scenic views of DeRuyter Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home in DeRuyter! David and Rhonda were exceptional hosts, checking in on us and making sure we had everything we needed. The surrounding towns were amazing and the lake was private and beautiful! We had such a relaxing and enjoyable stay and would recommend it to anyone who wanted a quiet, family getaway! We brought our dogs too and they absolutely loved swimming and being with us on vacation! Thanks for such a great week! We hope to visit again real soon!

Amazing house on the lake with all amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of three families with kids. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rhoda and David's house. David was right there to greet us when we entered. He showed us the whole house and all the facilities, including the kayaks that we could use during our stay. The house was very nice and was perfect for all of us. We had a blast the next few days, enjoyed the local produce, our morning and evening walks, kayaking and above all the pets had fun too. We would love to go back to the house and would highly recommend it to anyone going to that area.

I hope we can come back sometime.

We did walk to The Boat house for dinner Saturday evening. We were surprised they had a menu. We thought they only had fish on Friday and only steak on Saturday. Good beer also. Our server reminded us of a place in Cleveland. It is called Dick's Last Resort. They kind of make fun of you a bit. It is more fun though when you expect it. We settled in nicely though. I will return there also next time. I have no complaints.

Owner's Response: Dear James and Family, thank you for your " 5 Star Review ". It was our pleasure welcoming you and the family to our home in Up State NY, Finger Lakes region. Congratulations on your daughters graduation from Syracuse University. It was so nice you could all be together again to enjoy a good family celebration and a relaxing weekend. The Boat House is certainly a great, small family owned restaurant. It is very popular indeed with the Lake residents. Ritchie does a good job with his son, Ritchie junior. The fish is fresh from Boston and delivered every week to the local markets and restaurants. We look forward very much to seeing you all again very soon. Best regards, David and Rhonda.

LOVED OUR VACATION !!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a pet friendly house to rent in the central New York area to celebrate our 25th anniversary and to get some much needed R&R. This gorgeous lakefront home on DeRuyter Lake was the perfect choice ! The DeRuyter Lake area is so beautiful and serene and our stay was indeed very relaxing. It was pure heaven to sit on the beautiful deck and become mesmerized by the Lake. For those meals we didn't feel like cooking or grilling, the town of Cazenovia was about a 10 minute drive and there are many fine restaurants to eat in, as well as unique shops to browse through. The Saturday morning farmers market was awesome. I can't thank David and Rhonda, the owners, enough for their warm hospitality and for allowing our two dachshunds to enjoy the week with us at their beautiful property. We hope to come back soon !

Owner's Response: Dear Karen and Bill, thank you for your very kind words. We are so pleased you enjoyed your special anniversary vacation together and had the two "doxies" with you to enjoy the fun. We are one of the few Lakefront Luxury Homes that accommodate family pet dogs, are are very happy to offer that to our guests. Having them with you makes all the difference. We look forward to welcoming you again to our beautiful Lake. Best regards, David and Rhonda.

Most relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The owners, the property, the sounds of nature, made this trip worthwhile. Nestled on a small lake, surrounded by hills, this home was home away from home just nicer. Felt completely relaxed and serene. Would come back again.

Owner's Response: Dear Mr and Mrs Brown, thank you so much for your kind words. Indeed this is a very beautiful lake, my wife Rhonda was born and raised here. Our goal is to provide our guests and family members with a very luxurious, enjoyable and relaxing vacation. Something to remember for a long time. Best of all to be able to bring the " Family Dog " who is a very important part of the vacation. We have lovely waterfront restaurants, casual and formal, wineries, farmers markets, nature trails, and much more. All within a very short drive. We look forward to welcoming you back again very soon. David and Rhonda Arnsby.

We had a great time staying here and taking advantage of this beautiful lake and house.

  • 5 of 5

Our weeks stay at Rhonda and David’s lake house in De Ruyter NY was absolutely wonderful. This is a large house with three very large bedrooms right on De Ruyter Lake, in De Ruyter New York. The house is beautiful and the lake which is right off the back yard is also beautiful and clean. The house has its own private dock so you can bring a ski boat if you have one. The water is shallow so it would probably not accommodate a large boat. There are also two kayaks for you to use. Rhonda and Dave allow dogs as long as they are well behaved. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a separate bathroom for each bedroom and a laundry. There is also a separate dining room with a table and extra leaves that was large enough for all of us to fit around.

This area of NY is very pretty farm country with rolling hills, lakes, lots of trees and open farm land. Very peaceful. There is a market close by.

There were seven of us and two dogs that stayed here very comfortably. Please note that there is one bedroom on each level of the house. You will need to clime stares if you stay here. The only improvement that I can suggest would be to have one bedroom with twin beds. Currently all bedrooms have a queen or king bed. Sometimes guests are not conducive to sleeping in the same bed.

I would love to stay here again and would recommend to friends looking for a lake house in a quiet area.

Owner's Response: Dear Bruce and Family, we are so pleased you enjoyed your family vacation and the dogs had a good time too ! Just to point out, we do have a second Full Size Bed in the Top Floor Suite overlooking the Lake, in addition to the King Bed. It folds as a couch and opens up in seconds to a very comfortable Full Double Bed with a 10 inch mattress. Its fine for adults or kids. We do appreciate that on occasions it is necessary to have separate beds and that's why we purchased the additional bed two years ago. Thank you sincerely for booking with us and please consider us in your future plans. We would love to welcome you again to this beautiful area and lake. Very Best Regards, David and Rhonda
