Super cozy cottage with stunning views!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely LOVED this cottage! Everything was so cozy and comfortable - we felt right at home and enjoyed every minute of it. The private dock and beach was perfect and reading out on the front porch overlooking the lake was a daily joy! The kitchen was my favorite room of all with a wall of windows that provided lots of light and could be opened to let in cool lake breezes. This is truly a very special place and we will absolutely try and rent it again the next time we travel to the Fingerlakes.

A Perfect Finger Lakes Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We chose this house for our 2nd Girls' Trip and were not disappointed!! This charming, lakefront house is perfect for the quiet, relaxing getaway.

The lakefront porch became the favorite hangout for the days we stayed, and the natural babbling glen next to the house is not only beautiful and picture-worthy, but makes for an excellent sound machine at night!

The kitchen provided an excellent area for making quick breakfasts before heading out to go waterfalling and wining. It quickly became "home away from home" for us.

The beds are plenty and very comfortable, but in my opinion, the best place to sleep is the lakefront living room. There is nothing better than waking up to a gorgeous lake view every morning. It makes it hard to return home.

The private beach and dock were the perfect place to relax in the evening with a newly acquired bottle of Finger Lakes wine, especially after hiking Watkins Glen Gorge and touring a few local wineries.

I would recommend this house to anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway on Seneca Lake. The views are amazing, and the location is excellent, being close to Watkins Glen and local wineries and restaurants.

I will definitely be staying here for my next trip up to Finger Lakes!! My new "home away from home"!

Charming and Quaint Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We were absolutely delighted with this charming cottage situated overlooking Lake Seneca. It is well maintained, clean, and in an absolutely breathtaking setting. With the windows open, you hear the rippling waterfall which runs alongside the home and the property is heavily wooded with woodpeckers and chipmunks in abundance.

The kitchen is well stocked and a complimentary bottle of wine was waiting for us with a handwritten note that set the tone for a wonderful week. The cottage decor was darling and we enjoyed looking at old photos on walls. All the provisions promised were readily available. The owner was responsive, responsible and timely.

As mentioned in other reviews, Watkins Glen is less than two miles away with Ithaca, Corning nearby as well. The lake itself is so clean and you can see clear to the bottom in deep areas.

Can you guess, we would highly recommend this cottage!

Great Girls Week Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was just like the site said it was. It had just turned cold before we got there in the middle of Sept. but the place warmed up nicely. I would recommend this place to a anyone looking for a nice place to vacation in the Finger Lakes. The property is within a 30 minute trip of many attractions, Ithaca and Corning Glass Musuem. Taughannock and Buttermilk Falls are beautiful and great to hike. Watkins Glen State Park was great too and only 15 minutes away. We took a Lunch Cruise with Captain Bill's in Watkins Glen where we cruised passed the property from Seneca Lake.
The Seneca Wine Trail is very near the property with many wineries just up the road. If you want to visit the wineries on the west side of the lake the drive is easy to do.

The place itself was wonderful. The beds were very comfortable. The linens and towels were clean. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook many meals there. The front porch was inviting and relaxing to sit on. Down the steps to a beach and dock for enjoying wine and sunsets. The driveway was a little scary at first but once we were used to it no problem even in a large SUV. The small waterfall next to the property provided calming sounds to sleep to.

If your looking for a place away from the big city lights this is it. We used it for a girls getaway and had a fabulous time.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 4 of 5
We spent almost a week here and enjoyed it more each day as we became more accustomed to our surroundings. The drive down to the cottage from the road is intimidating at first, but becomes better with familiarity. The cottage itself is a classic, and has plenty of space for a family of four. No need for A/C, since there are windows everywhere and the breeze off of the lake refreshes better than any closed up window and pumped in cold air can. We love to cook and this had everything we needed to make our wine pairings a success. The best part was the reason we came to Seneca lake, the lake itself. The dock, the beach, the lake, sunset, cool breeze, clear water, and a bottle of wine with my wife on the lake made the perfect getaway.

If you have an opportunity to rent here, do it. Just leave a week available for us.

A Lovely Fall Vacation to Remember!

  • 5 of 5
This was a charming, quaint cottage on Lake Seneca. We thoroughly enjoyed the seclusion, being surrounded by nature, woods on three sides and facing the lake. There was even a stream and waterfall running right by the cottage. With the windows open it felt like you were outside. All we could hear was the lake, the stream, waterfalls, wild birds, other woodland creatures, and an occassional boat. We felt like we had gone back to a simpler place in time when life moved a lot slower. Our visit was in late September so there weren't many families with children around at that time but I can imagine the fun it would be there in the summer too. There's a nice dock for boating and a beach area for basking in the sun.
Nearby there were many enjoyable things to do. We went hiking in several State Parks and saw many beautiful waterfalls. There's a nice bike trail close by and good restaurants. The scenery, driving around, is gorgeous with lots of winerys and good wine tasting too! It rained a few times during our week stay but we always found things to do and had a wonderful time in this delightful home away from home!

I would not recommend this cottage for families with very young toddlers or people with walking disabilities.
