When someone mentions New York, you immediately think of an urban jungle with towering buildings and busy streets. It’s often forgotten that New York isn’t just that. It’s a vast state with several cities scattered all throughout. If you head up north, you will find the city of Oswego, which is known as the “Port City of Central New York”. It sits on the banks of Lake Ontario, which makes it an accessible area for trade. Oswego also played an important role during World War II as a refugee camp for Holocaust survivors. The city is home to other museums and historical sites, including Fort Ontario, which is a great place to visit for tourists who want to learn about the city. If you’re planning a trip to this port city, check out our list of the top Airbnb vacation rentals in Oswego, New York.
The preserved brick building, where this accommodation is located, sits on the banks of Lake Ontario, and it doesn’t get any better than that. The views both during the day and night are splendid. To add to that, the apartment is located in the middle of downtown, right next to great restaurants and bars, and walking distance to shops such as groceries, bookshops, and pharmacies. The loft itself has traces of its rustic remnants, but it is also equipped with modern amenities, thus making it a great place to stay.

Get a taste of what it’s like to live in a cabin near the lakeshore with this accommodation. Just walk five minutes and you’ll reach the shores of Lake Ontario - all you have to do is bring your swim wear, aqua shoes, and canoe. The best time to be at the lake is at sunset and it’s even better because you will practically have the beach to yourself. The house itself is dainty and homey with lots of comfortable beds available. If you’re in the mood for a barbecue, you can do so at the large open deck just outside the kitchen.

This adorable accommodation is located in the host’s backyard. Originally a tiny shed, it has been transformed into a cozy and compact place for you to stay for a night or two. The tiny house is completely solar powered, so you may have to bring extra batteries in case there will be days without sun during your stay. The kitchen is well-equipped and for entertainment, there’s a television and Roku with Netflix and Hulu. Guests should note that there is no shower, but the accommodation comes with a hot tub that can be used until 10 pm.

If you’re traveling to Oswego as a big group, you should consider this accommodation. This dainty house has three bedrooms, each one has a queen-size bed, so it can easily sleep up to six people. The rest of the house is also spacious enough for your group. One of the best things about the house is its quirky decor, complete with colorful pastel walls, dainty patterns, and several travel photos. It is located near many highways, so accessibility is also a great advantage, plus parking is also provided.
