About Richard

I grew up in nearby Geneva and have spent part of every summer at the cottage since I was a child. My wife and I have degrees from Alfred University and SUNY Geneseo. Our family has many warm and special memories from times spent at the cottage.

Richard purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Richard chose Geneva

This property has been in my family since the 1930s. This area on the east shore of Seneca Lake once was a large park with a dance pavilion and picnic areas known as Pastime Park. It was divided and sold to individuals in the 1930's, and remains a secluded, private area just 5 miles from Geneva.

What makes this cottage unique

Being on the east shore of the lake, the sun filters through the trees in the morning, and shade lingers on parts of the lawn during the day. Refreshing breezes may blow across the water until late afternoon. Typically, there are beautiful, quiet sunsets in the evening.

Perfect vacation!

We had the best time at this cottage - it is amazing. Exactly what we were looking for. So relaxing to sit on the deck right on the lake. The cottage is immaculate and comes with everything you need. The owners take wonderful care of the cottage and their guests -thank you Richard and Sue!

15 Year Anniversary Get Away

  • 5 of 5
What a great place. Upon arrival, eggs, milk and orange juice in the refrigerator. House was spotless. Deck is incredible. Wonderful views of the lake and sunsets. Cabin has everything you need. Totally seamless transition into vacation with this house. Will be back for sure and will recommend this anyone looking for a getaway. Location is remote, yet only 10 minutes to the grocery store and town. To sum it up, this place is perfect and would not change a thing!!!

Promises Kept

  • 5 of 5
It was a pleasure to relax mornings and evenings at your cottage. Clean, marvelously appointed and surrounded by the beauty of one of the most wonderful areas on earth, the Finger Lakes.We walked the Watkins Glen trail and it was spectacular. The regional wines are 1st class and we enjoyed them in the evening with dinner and a sunset. The furnishings, deck and boat house were more than "as advertised". We look forward to returning next summer for a getaway.

Vacationing at the Seneca Lake Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed Richard and Sue's wonderful cottage on Seneca lake for a week. The size of the cottage was perfect for us and our two daughters in their 20's. We swam, canoed, kayaked and enjoying beautiful sunsets from the deck and pier and loved it all. Richard and Sue's extra touches-the treats they left for us; the amazing new pier, the new comfortable queen bed, covering on the deck which allows you to sit on the wonderful adirondack deck chairs in the rain, the boats with boat shoes, lights leading up to the cottage and book of things to see and do have made our vacation even more special. They truly have thought of everything. We've loved and explored the area, did wine tastings, hiked at Watkins Glen, and listened to music in Ithaca. We loved our week at the cottage and are already missing the lake.

Wonderful spot

  • 5 of 5
Such a charming cottage, very well equipped and the location is stellar. We enjoyed the use of the canoes and kayaks and were pleased with the good condition of paddles and life jackets. The deck proved to be the perfect location for our coffee in the morning and glass of wine in the evening. A lovely home you have. All provisions were thought out in advance and ready for our need. We had 6 people and were quite comfortable. The games were a welcome addition for our rainy days and nights. If we are ever in the area I would definitely request the cottage again. Thank you.
