Private retreat on the lake. This tiny home is right out of the pages of a field and stream magazine.

The space
This tiny home sits on five private acres right on the water where fishing, kayaking, and paddle boarding is right out your doorsteps! The home has an efficiency kitchen with everything you need. This open floor plan offers a cozy sitting area, a private bedroom and bathroom, as well as a beautiful deck overlooking the lake. A perfect retreat for those looking to get away from it all and relax in nature's paradise with lots of outdoor adventures or a romantic getaway. There are plenty of things to do and explore on this unique property. Wake up to coffee on the deck overlooking the lake and fall asleep to the tranquil sounds of nature.

*Four wheel drive or all wheel drive recommended. This is a rural setting and we do get snow.

Guest access
Yard, creek, two dock/ board walks, & of course the Lake!

Other things to note
Thanks for adhering to the below rules as this will ensure a great experience and reviews for all guests.

We are pet friendly however we require a $50/ pet fee. Please also keep your dogs on leashes and pick up after them. Absolutely no dogs on the furniture or beds.


We are open to early check in, if we can accommodate with scheduling. However, we will be charging an extra $35 per hour you check in early due to the additional costs on our end. There is no guarantee that we can have an early check in, but we will try our best.

No smoking on property of any kind- we will keep your security deposit if we find you were smoking!

Please no food or beverages in any of the bedrooms at any time.

Please remove shoes when in the house to protect the floors.

Please be advise that this is Central New York, weather is unpredictable and while we do provide a plowed driveway, there is a possibility of additional snow during your stay. We have a shovel available for those situations. The driveway can be icy during unexpected storms so use caution. Please be patient with our plow service. The company comes when we have snow fall. The driveway is long and can be difficult to navigate if not plowed fully. So wait for the plowing to be completed before trying to leave. Check out days it will always be done by 11 am.
