The space
Everything you could want for a lakefront getaway. The apartment is attached to the main house and has a private entrance/stairway to your door. (Please note: you must be able to use stairs to access this property). The Nest at Heron Cove has a beach and seasonal dock for easy water access for our canoe, kayaks, paddle boards or the paddle boat – all available for your use (Apr - Oct). The dock is also a great place for fishing, morning coffee or afternoon happy hour watching a gorgeous sunset over the water. The beach area is also ideal for evening campfires in the fire pit or star gazing – the Milky Way is visible on clear nights! The Nest at Heron Cove is located just 15 minutes from the Village of Skaneateles, 10 Minutes from Song Mountain Ski Resort, 20 minutes to Labrador Mountain Ski Resort and 30 minutes from Syracuse University and SUNY Cortland.

Otisco Lake is perfect for a quiet, romantic getaway, but is also known as THE place to go for the avid fisherman. It is especially good for bass, walleye, trout and record setting tiger musky. Ice fishing is especially popular on Otisco Lake in the winter months. Boat and jet ski rentals are available at the Otisco Lake Marina and Lake Otisco Campground Marina in the Spring and Summer months, and for those with their own watercraft, the public boat launch is located directly across the lake from our house or launch at one of the marinas for a small fee.

The Nest has strong Wifi and a Firestick for watching your favorite movies or shows. There is a large sofa that is also a queen-sized pullout bed, as well as a large swivel recliner for relaxing. Beautiful lake and sunrise views from the dining table.

The kitchen is fully equipped with refrigerator, stove/oven, pots, pans and utensils, as well as a coffee/tea bar, toaster, microwave and outdoor gas grill.

There is a queen bed and dresser in the bedroom for plenty of storage.

The Nest at Heron Cove is a cozy, convenient, year-round getaway – close to the quaint village of Skaneateles, wineries, breweries and cidery tours, fall foliage, hiking, apple picking, waterfalls, Song Mountain Ski Resort, Marinas and of course, steps from the shores of beautiful Otisco Lake.
