My wife and my two children (11 and 9) enjoyed our ten days at this property. The residence was simply furnished, clean and had everything we required, including a few board games and kids DVDs. The beds were very comfortable. It was extremely quiet during the week, and on the weekend, while there were more property owners around, it was still very quiet, which was great for a relaxing vacation. We would go for walks around the neighbourhood, and our kids rode their bikes around the neighbouring streets. In the evening, we had fires in the fire pit.
The property was located 45 minutes from Ithaca, 15 minutes from Watkins Glen and 5 minutes from Farm Sanctuary. There was farm fresh produce for sale five minutes from the property. We found the property was pretty centrally located to visit the places we wanted to see in the area as well as for shopping purposes. The property owner stopped by to ensure that we had everything we needed. The property manager also stopped by to ensure everything was in order. They were very pleasant, respectful people to deal with.
Lamoka Lake isn’t a huge lake so the water was warm (in August) and not too wavy. The only drawback for some people is that it is somewhat weedy in the water around the shoreline when we stayed. One of my children didn’t enjoy swimming through the weeds, so we would take the pedalboat provided with the property out past the weeds and jump off the pedalboat and swim. We swam almost every day, depending on the weather.
We would certainly stay here again and we would have stayed another month if we could.
