I am moving to the Manlius area next week. I was interested in buying a small cottage on a lake. Does anyone know of any affordable lakes that are a driving distance of less than 2 hours from Manlius? The lake would have to allow motoring.

Thanks!

DeRuyter Lake - about 15 minutes south, continuing off Oran-Delphi Road (starts off Rt. 92, at the southern outskirts of Manlius.)
DeRuyter Lake If you google it, there are QUITE a few places that offer information on buying a cottage, camp or lake house.

And Tuscarora Lake, in Erieville, about 20-25 minutes away- east of Caz and just off Rt. 20. I tried looking up sites but the only ones I saw were links for local restaurants, businesses and real estate.

I would also add Otisco Lake in southwestern Onondaga County to the mix. Otisco is about 35 minutes southwest of Manlius and about 10 minutes northeast of Skaneateles. Some properties along the lake will have a Marietta address

There are some at smaller lakes too. I think Green Lake near Tully has some and a place like Kasoag Lake in Oswego County near Williamstown has some, if I'm not mistaken. There should be plenty of options considering that the area is close to 25% of the world's fresh water.

Kayuta Lake is less than an hour and half, it is just outside the Adirondack Park. Brantingham Lake is in a lovely quiet area with a great local restaurants and golf course, not far from a ski hill. If you would like more information feel free to PM me.

The Tully lakes and Little York Lake a little further south have varying affordability levels. Places on Little York Lake seem pretty cheap when I see them advertised in Cortland but that might be because I-81 and a railroad run through it.

If I read that right you're looking for a vacation property, right? There's also Cross Lake, the Eastern end of Oneida is cheaper, and there are loads of smaller lakes/ponds/rivers that have cabins on them.

Lake Moraine would also be a good choice - under 40 miles southeast of Syracuse, a couple miles outside Hamilton (a very nice village). I like the summertime vibe around there; sort of an inland Cape Cod feel.
