DeRuyter Lake House
This property was a very quaint and spacious 3-story lake home. The stairs give you a good work out for sure. It is advertised as accommodating 8, but really that should be 6 adults and 2 children. There are 3 bedrooms, one of which has a small futon. If you come as 8 adults, you need to bring some air matresses and bedding or someone could sleep on the couch. We had 8 adults and we managed ok.
The best is the location right on the lake with a large deck
and a grill, a fire pit by the water, and kayaks and adequate parking for 4 cars...and dogs are permitted! That is why I chose this property. And there is a nice flat lane to walk the dogs.
Dave and Rhonda are great hosts, very willing to make your stay a pleasant one...and very knowledgeable about local points of interest. I would love to return to this property but with only 6 adults next time.
Privacy and Quiet
This house has three levels with separate bedroom suites. The view of the lake is lovely dawn to dusk. It has a large lot and the neighbors are quiet. It is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy a sense of isolation hard to find on the heavily populated east coast.
One caveat. The lake is fine for kayaking but not for swimming. It is reedy and rocky at the shoreline. Otherwise a great place to relax.
A Relaxing Getaway
Our family of five adults and one dog had a lovely week starting off with a warm and genuine welcome by David and Rhonda. There was plenty of space and privacy for all. In addition to daily kayaking and biking, our family enjoyed the breathtaking views and sauna too! We also enjoyed trips to Stone Quarry Hill Art Park, Empire Brewery, Owera Winery, and Madison County Distillery in addition to all the treasures Cazenovia has to offer. It was a very relaxing week and we hated to leave. Would definitely book with them again.
Great house, excellent views, wonderful host
This was our third time staying here and we cannot say enough good things about the place.
Rhonda and David were wonderful host, they even accommodated our last minute plan change by offering an additional day. Thank you !!
The house itself is serene, tastefully decorated with gorgeous views of the lake. All in all we had a great time and we plan to visit again next year.
Dear Chaitali, thank you for your review and booking with us for a third time !
So pleased you had a wonderful stay. We look forward to welcoming you back again next year.
Very best regards,
David and Rhonda
Would definitely book another stay!!
The house was as advertised, spacious and impeccably clean. Having coffee looking out over the peaceful and serene lake was memorable. The owners couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating to us. An overall enjoyable stay and we will book again when in the area!!
A relaxing home away from home with views you don't get a home!
Beautiful private home on a well kept, magnificent lake. Views of the lake from kitchen/ living room as well as master and upstairs bedrooms. Thoroughly enjoyed making meals while looking out onto the lake. Just need to bring your food and drink!! Owners even provided bagged ice! Looking forward to come back in the future!
