If the wineries aren't your thing then visit the nearby Corning Glass Museum, Rockwell Western Art Museum or Curtis Motorcycle/Aircraft Museum.

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.

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.

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!

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.

July 2013 vacation

The cottage is charming, and everything fit the description in the listing. The lake is much quieter than the surrounding, larger lakes, which we saw as a very positive feature. The two decks offer spectacular views. We arrived during a heat wave, and without AC, it was uncomfortably warm at night - even with the fans on full power. However, that was a minor inconvenience relative to the overall experience.

We recommend renting bikes at the TrueValue Hardware store in Penn Yan - which is right on the Kueka Outlet Trail - and biking the 14 mile round trip on that trail to and from Dresden. That was a highlight of our vacation. Just be sure to bring plenty of water with you!

Owner's Response: It was my pleasure to be able to provide a place for you and your family to enjoy your vacation! You even taught me something about the bike trail which I am now looking forward to going on when I return back up in the fall! Thanks again for a great review! Sylvia
