Charming house with enough room for all to spread out. Very well equipped, clean and well-maintained. Was like visiting a friend's lovely home. Decor was especially nice. Photos and description on listing was very accurate. Would definitely stay there again.

Splendid stay!

Having spent seven days in July at Onanda Sky, I can't wait to return! We needed a place for family members to gather for our son and his bride's wedding celebration in nearby Bristol, and Onanda Sky was perfect. For the most part it was our family togetherness that made our time so memorable. However, the well-appointed, homey, spacious accommodations; comfortable beds; beautiful property; and million-dollar view all added to making our week extra special. The front lawn provided a wonderful place for peaceful contentment on chairs, warming campfires, photo ops, hang-out time, and bocce games--all while gazing at the lake. I recommend the walk up to where the gravel road meets the main road for another a great view! This is a spectacular place to stay, the owners were very pleasant and helpful, and I highly recommend this very welcoming house.

We really enjoyed our stay at Onanda Sky last week. The house was large and clean, the beds were beautifully made and very comfortable and the views were gorgeous. We loved using the fire pit and appreciated the space of the home and it had alot to offer. The laundry facilities were fantastic and all of our needs were met with the amenities. I have been telling all of my friends about this beautiful home and look forward to an opportunity for a return visit.

Wonderful vacation place!

The house fit our family of 10 (6 adults and 4 children) perfectly. Five of us traveled from the midwest to join our son's family who live in New York. It has been two years since we have all been together, and this was a great place to stay to let us enjoy some family time. The house was very,very comfortable and the view was breathtaking. The owners were very helpful and accommodating.

Wonderful Views! And very comfortable house

This home is gorgeous - the views are amazing, the property is expansive, and the home is very well kept and comfortable. There was plenty of room for our friends and family attending a nearby wedding - all 5 bedrooms are well appointed. The beds and pillows are comfortable, and the house is very well decorated. This home has everything you need - a grill, a fire pit overlooking the lake for s'mores, and ample seating for everyone to relax in the living room(s). Linda is very friendly and helpful - she was flexible and worked with us when the groom was unexpectedly deployed, and had to move the wedding date up one month. I would recommend this property to anyone staying in the Canandiagua/Finger Lake area. I could not have been happier with Onanda Sky, and wish we could have stayed longer!

Your house was truly an elegant place to celebrate. The sunset on Friday night accompanied by local Finger Lakes wine was a delight. Did I mention how comfortable the beds are? Despite the gloomy weather on Saturday we still had a great time. I will definitely recommend Onanda Sky to my friends as an excellent stay in the Finger Lakes. Thanks again!

What a wonderful and relaxing escape!! The home is lovely and spacious. The grounds are great for hiking. The view is fantastic from every window and it's hard to want to do anything but look out at the lake and beautiful woods although we did enjoy the firepit out front and the fireplace in the evening. I thought I'd do a lot of reading but just couldn't take my eyes off the view. Onanda Sky is an extremely convenient location for dining, wine tasting and just kicking back. Although we've been to Bristol Harbour many times everyone seemed especially friendly this time probably because we were so happy ourselves. Our friends, my husband and I hated to leave and can't wait to get back again. Thanks Linda!

This well-kept home is beautfiully appointed and the views from the large 1st floor windows bring the outside in. The numerous living areas in which to spread out leave plenty of room for vacationers to unwind and destress, and the outside deck/patio provide the perfect space for everyone to come back together for alfresco dining after cooking dinner on the excellent gas grill. To finish up each day after the many terrific activities to choose from, the party does well to build a fire in the stone pit, and enjoy the stars and views of Canadaigua Lake to the north. Everyone left so relaxed, always the telling sign... The owner is most responsive and will be there in a flash if any problems arise. Couldn't be more pleasant to deal with! Not only would I recommend this property to anyone I know, but I would be ever so happy to return myself! Recommended activities are listed below. Enjoyed : *outdoor fires almost every night *a great waterfall hike & swim the final day with all of us finally together in a perfect Grimes Glen time (right in the town on Naples!) * a lovely lunch cruise on Keuka Lake-- aboard the Esperanza Rose-- followed by a visit to Dr. Frank's *kayaking 2 days on Cananadaigua w/1 lunch at the Wine & Culinary Institute *the Women's Rights Museum in Seneca Falls *Seneca Falls Waterfall walk/gentle hike & Henry J. Wiemer vineyard *Fox Run & Anthony Road Vineyards * our final, wonderful night under the stars @ Inspire Moore Vineyard (right in Naples!) w/ the Rochester band The Beat Beggars!!! All I can say is, are lucky to be living in such a rich, beautiful region! Naples is a special place and we really enjoyed our times in town. *Don't forget to knock on Cindy's house in Naples/dutch door, for her AWESOME grape pie!!! Dessert made easy tops it all off--it turns out that you CAN have your cake and eat it too!

I really enjoyed my stay at Onanda Sky. It was every bit as advertised. It is very comfortable and tastefully done. There truly are beautiful views in every room. It is a great place for a leisurely vacation or weekend get-a-way. It's location was perfect for what I was looking for, peaceful, serene, and private, but still close to many attractions. It's a wonderful retreat after spending a day exploring the beautiful Finger Lakes.

“Highly recommend, exquisite house and views!

The house was perfect for our wedding weekend. It was very spacious for the entire family and entertaining indoors as well as patio area outdoors with gorgeous views!! Each room is decorated beautifully and we had all the accomodations of being at home with the kitchen and supplies. The beds were all very comfortable and bedroom views were spectactular. We plan to come back for a long weekend next year as it was so peaceful and relaxing. My only regret was not getting to use the jacuzzi bath tub!

We had a wonderful time and everyone loved the house. My mother greeted us in the driveway saying: “Welcome to my new house” !My daughter is ready to move there. I decided to take my family back along Hwy 104 for a “scenic” drive. (big mistake –long boring ride).When we got to your house, all we could think of was the extra hours we could have enjoyed just sitting in the front yard overlooking the lake rather than have spent hours in a car I would love to see it in the fall or Indian Summer.Didn’t catch anything in the pond except a snake, a turtle & a frog: they are still there enjoying the weather.If/when we get to go to N.Y. again, I have a pretty good idea of where we would like to stay; I’ll keep your # handy for us or for referrals.Thank you Linda

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Onanda Sky. The home was beautifully furnished, with ample supply of linens, towels, and household items. The bedding was every bit as luxurious as a Starwood Resort, but with the comfort and warmth of being at home. The views were breathtaking. Every room had a beautiful view of the lake! I felt the excitement and adventure of a child, while hiking the grounds on and around the property. I will recommend it to anyone wanting to visit the area, and will look forward to a return visit!

Wonderful Weekend Getaway!!

The house is beautiful and was the perfect place to stay for my friend and I as we wanted to visit some of the local wineries. You definitely feel at home at Onanda Sky. It is very clean, with beautifully decorated and cozy bedrooms, a lovely living room to kick back and relax in after a day of taking in the local sites, and gorgeous views out of every window. I would highly recommend Onanda Sky to any of my friends looking for a peaceful weekend getaway.

Just wanted to extend out sincere appreciation for letting us rent your home! The ladies enjoyed it so much and we had wonderful responses about the house - no one could believe how beautiful it is and how affordable. It is so tastefully decorated - we couldn't have found a better place! All the best.
