I am so pleased to be able to finally start this blog because I have been saving up so many helpful tips on finding and building a lake home in the beautiful Finger Lakes. I will share gotchas on building a lake home, recommendations for local service providers, how to find your perfect lake house (whether its a seasonal cottage or a palatial dream home). Also I will share my experiences in renting my first lake home through VRBO and HomeAway (one way to afford a vacation home!) And since began this journey I managed to make a pretty bold career move and my encore career as a Real Estate Agent and now can share a whole lot more information on the process. Welcome to my new blog! I hope it is helpful to everyone who is ready to make their new home or lake home dreams a reality.
