Winter wonderland getaway

Cannot even begin to describe how beautiful the property and house are, pictures do not do it justice.
I had set up our stay for early January for a getaway for my husband and I as he returned from a 9 month deployment. Even if the off season, the view of the lake is incredible! The fireplaces kept us so toasty, and the amenities and furniture were incredibly comfortable.
The kitchen is amazing and stocked with everything and anything you could need to cook a delicious meal, although we usually spent our days adventuring around town and exploring beautiful downtown Ithica which is just a few minutes drive away.
I must also commend the homeowners, who were always available if we had any questions, even just advice on the best local bars or restaurants to go to.
Cannot wait to book another stay in the spring or summer and spend another week discovering the local sights!

Special Place

We had a wonderful time at your Lake home. It was the perfect place to spend time with our son while he attended grad classes at Cornell. It was a special treat for all of us.

We could not have been more comfortable in your home. Everthing that we needed and more was there! The heating options in each room were efficient and classy. The kitchen was expertly equipped for the meals that we prepared. The beds were comfy and sleep was so peaceful. The lake was beautiful, with some fall colors to appreciate.

Thank you for sharing this special place with us.

Wonderful Memories

What a beautiful Lake House you have! It has everything we could possibly need to enjoy a relaxing vacatoin. We had a wonderful time visiting the area's many waterfalls and gorges, wineries, and even tried our luck at the casino in Farmington. But the thing we enjoyed most was coming back to the house and having a glass of wine while sitting in the jacuzzi watching the sunset over the lake. How perfect! We loved the house and appreciate the comfortable elegance of the way it is decorated.

Thank you for the wonderful memories.

beautiful, tranquil home

This was our second stay in this home- both times were just perfect! First time just my husband and I two years ago and it was a very romantic getaway, the second time with another couple and the house was just as accommodating and enjoyable. Impeccably clean, it has every single amenity you could desire. It really feels like a home away from home. The kitchen is incredible, fully stocked with top of the line appliances- it has every item you could possibly need, even a cuisinart standing mixer! the bathroom is likewise fully equipped, soaps, fresh towels, brand new washer and dryer, hairdryer....The home is beautifully set with amazing views which can also be enjoyed from the jacuzzi bathtub in the master bedroom. We enjoyed all our meals on the beautiful deck outside and made good use of the grill!

The surrounding area is breathtaking- the enchanting watkins glenn park, taughannock falls, finger lakes and wineries all a short drive away from the house. there is so much to explore in the area- truly magnificent scenery.

Jennifer was so responsive and accommodating- definitely the fastest responding home owner I have ever come across on any home rental site. She was kind enough to offer us use of their kayak which was a spectacular sunset trip on the beautiful cayuga lake. Truly a relaxing haven and I can not recommend it enough! Not a single negative thing to say about this place!

Exactly What We Were Looking For

Description and photos are accurate. Property was clean and well-maintained. I would definitely recommend it (as you are presently reading). If anything, the description understates the amenities; in particular, the shower is quite nice (see photo).

On the other hand, although the place certainly sleeps four, it may not really seat that many (to watch the TV). While the kitchen is well-appointed, there isn't really a dining area per se (only a table in the kitchen and a bar with stools). Be prepared for relatively steep, narrow steps between the two floors, and the only shower is upstairs.

All in all, this place totally works for a romantic getaway, and I would be quite happy to come back here sometime.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to provide a review. We work hard to ensure our guests are comfortable and are continuously updating and improving the property.

You are correct that this 1600 square foot home may seem small for a party of four...especially if driven inside due to inclimant weather. I have not thought the living room seating be be too sparse... With a full sized futon and two oversized leather reclining chairs... Perhaps an additional chair or two would offer additional seating options. We will certainly look into that. We have been known to pull in one of the 10 deck chairs, or one of the seven dining chairs when we have company!!!

I am surprised to hear that you found the stairs narrow. The home is newly constructed meeting all current building codes including the standard 3'6" wide stairwell with ample 4'x6 platform landing midway up, with standard risers.

I do hope that you found the brand new flooring in the living room cozy, we loved it when we found it. The 46" flat sceen LCD is also a recent addition. We also hope that you enjoyed many of the specialized amenities including the Bath and Body Works products, the Keurig coffee maker, cephalon cookware, the fully stocked kitchen with spices, condiments, batteries, paper products, baggies etc.

It is out goal to make the Lake House a cozy, turn key home away from home.
