When I was 2 yrs old I jumped off the dock on Waneta Lake and scared my mother to death. It was just the beginning of an adventuresome & exciting life that I was going to experience every summer. I have so many fond memories and valued all the friendships that I developed especially my water skiing buddies. We competed and traveled NY to several competitions and I earned my expert rating in slalom and was offered a job by Cypress Gardens. The lake will always be close to my heart even though I can't be there as much now since living in Florida. Renting it out gives other people the wonderful opportunity that I have so enjoyed and now they can experience also.

Sylvia purchased this cottage in 2003

It was my lifelong dream of owning my own place on the lake and I was fortunate that my family always owned this place and it has been passed down through the generations. My children also have a love for the lake and the best thing this past summer was seeing my 5 yr old grandson getting up on the ski sled that my kids used when they were young.

It is so conveniently located to the many attractions that surround the lake that you will never be bored. You can either just be lazy and float on your raft or jump in the car to go shopping, sightseeing, races at Watkins Glen or just enjoy the beautiful fall leaves on the hillside that surrounds the lake.

A Great Vacation Getaway

  • 4 of 5
My family just got back from a wonderful week at this charming lake home. The owner was very helpful answering all our questions. She even called mid-week to check on things and see if there was anything else we needed. The neighbors on both sides were extremely nice and very friendly. We had a wonderful time visiting wineries, nearby waterfalls and Watkins Glen State Park. Spent the evenings relaxing on the decks and sitting by the fire pit. A great time was had by all!

Memorial Day Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at lake house over the Memorial Day holiday to attend a wedding. The house is in a great location, with perfect views of the lake. We loved the deck, fire pit and dock (with row boat). The kids were able to catch fish right off the dock with no problems at all. Another great feature of the house is the location. We took days trips to Watkins Glen State Park, race track Hammondsport - coolest small town in America ;) and even had time for a few of the local wineries. The owner made the whole rental process as smooth as can be. We look forward to renting the property again. We would highly recommend. Thanks again and sorry for the late post.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed the rental house. It was right on the beautiful lake. The fishing pier was perfect for fishing. There were 2 decks to enjoy the view and sunset. We made s'mores in the firepit next to the lake. The kids loved going out in the row boat! The house was very clean and the beds comfy. Bikes were provided so we were able to take the kids bike riding. We went to Watkins Glenn State Park and hiked the gourge trail to see the magnificent waterfall. The Corning Glass Museum was a must do! We took a glass blowing class and got to make our own glass sculpture. There were plenty of vineyards in the area for a wine tasting experience. It was just a wonderful place to relax or see the surrounding sights! Sylvia was a joy to work with. We will definitely rent from her again.

Girl's Fall weekend!

Girl's Fall weekend!

My friends and I were lucky to find this listing. We had been looking for a cottage just like this for some time now. Our search is over! We arrived to find the cottage exactly as depicted in the pictures and it was very clean. It was both roomy and cozy for the five of us. We love the Waneta/Kueka area and Twin Oaks offers just the right amount of privacy while being close enough to many activities. We hit the Switz a couple times, stopped at some nearby wineries and the Windmill. We would have done more but were very content hanging out at the cottage. The neighbors, who were very friendly, stopped by to say hello-we even got the scoop on some Waneta lore..
We were blessed with wonderful weather for our long weekend and spent most of the time on the two outdoor decks, with plenty of room to spread out overlooking the lake and the colorful foliage. Stunning views! We did not want to leave and spent most of the weekend talking about renting this cottage again. I would definitely recommend this cottage to a small group or family that is looking to relax and de-stress.
Sylvia was very flexible with our booking and was very responsive. I enjoyed our conversations. Thanks, Sylvia, for allowing us to enjoy this beautiful place that you so obviously love.

Clean, sunny cottage!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with 4 adults, 2 toddlers and 2 babies and the cottage was perfect for our week long vacation. Having the pack n play and high chair in the cottage was SO helpful. We set the pack n play up sort of in the closet of the one bedroom and it worked out very well. Everything was very clean and well maintained. We loved having the 2 porches with patio furniture and dock for our rental boats. The kitchen is really well stocked with everything you'd need for cooking. The kids had a great time on the swing outside and running around in the little backyard.

Wonderful Owner!

  • 4 of 5
Communication with Sylvia was great, inside of the cottage just as pictures described. Great two-tiered deck and the firepit area was a winner with my kids. Fishing off the dock was great, my 9 and 11 year old caught 3 keeper Bass and countless panfish; only drawback is that with the weedbeds so close to the dock swimming was a no go. Cottage had everything you needed for day-to-day living, cooking, and cleaning. Maintence man made an appearance just to introduce himself and left us his contact info. Area is great as well, Hammondsport is a beautiful little town and Watkins Glen State Park is magnificent; I almost forgot the vinyards - I recommend Bully Hill, very nice and good reds. Our group had 8 total, 4 adults - 4 kids, which was a little tight for sleeping reasons only. Lake is approx. 3 miles long and a little less in width, boater/wave runner traffic was surprising little; lots of fisherman. Would recommend to friends and family and we hope to stay again. Thanks again Sylvia for a wonderful family week well spent.
