A magical place

  • 5 of 5
We lucked out in that it wasn`t a wintry weekend...the owners aptly described the steep curvy driveway....thought they were exaggerating...not at all...but well worth it...very well kept cozy cottage, stocked with everything...our grandson loved the draw bridges to gain access to cottage...not far from many things to do...Watkins Glen, winiries, trails to hike, kayaking in season....so peaceful on Seneca Lake this time of year...and lots to do at the cottage...movies,games, skipping the nice flat shale rocks across the lake...awakening to lovely sunrises...very nice

Charming cottage on beautiful Seneca Lake

  • 4 of 5
Lovely location and beautiful lake front property. We were 6 adults and managed just fine even with the 1 shower/bathroom. Everything you need for cooking or grilling or baking is right there. Had fun rowing on the lake, too. Toys and games for all ages are available in the cottage and lots of places to visit, hike or tour in the area. Owners provided detailed information. NOTE: Be careful on the access road, it's quite steep and gravel can get slippery.

We loved the house and property, especially the fire pit by the lake on an almost full moon evening. The drive down the hill can be rather challenging, however we managed just fine. Overall a wonderful stay!

Father-Son Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a 4 day weekend of hiking by day and amateur astronomy at night. While trees and lakeshore lights were a distraction, a lack of nearby large cities made the milky way visible each night. The property is honestly described, and was clean, well stocked, and well maintained. Owners included helpful notes on how to best make use of the property and find needed items. There was even a bound and well-organized notebook with tons of info on local attractions and dining. Overall, the atmosphere makes you fell like a welcome guest of the owners.

enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5
Six female family members shared this cottage for an enjoyable 3 night stay. Cottage was perfect for us. It was very clean and the area very quiet. Keep in mind that this is a somewhat older cottage in a semi wooded lakefront area. If you are looking for a modern new beach type house, this is not for you. But the house is comfortable and gave us a space to gather together and relax, something we couldn't get from hotel rooms. The drive down (and up) the road/driveway is a little scary at first, but doable. I would have been very hesitant to drive up or down with a trailer attached and not sure a big pick up truck or extra large vehicle would fit between the neighbors house. We had a minivan and didn't have a whole lot of room to spare. Would definately check with owners if you had a large vehicle before renting. The area is beautiful with lots to do, My only complaint is that there isn't enough time to enjoy all the area has to offer.
