Overview

Dresden Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4; separate lakeside cabana for relaxing

Welcome to Two Sisters Cottage! On a quiet dead-end street, Two Sisters is really 2 cozy bungalows for the price of one. The main (sleeping) cottage offers 2 bedrooms (1 queen, 1 full bed) plus a full bath (tub with shower), fully outfitted kitchen, lovely lake-view dining area, and comfortable living room for relaxing and watching cable TV or DVDs. At beach level, our newly renovated lakeside cabana (no sleeping facilities) is surrounded by decking and lounge chairs, just a few steps from your own boat dock and beach, and is outfitted with mini-fridge, bar, blender, comfy furniture, and a hammock, giving you a wonderful place to relax at the end of a day on the lake. Between the two buildings is a lovely landscaped patio with picnic table, lounge chairs, gas grill, shade trees and of course lake view. It doesn't get better than than this!

Whether visiting the area for our wonderful wineries, girlfriend getaway, romantic weekend, or fishing our world-famous lake trout, you will love Two Sisters on Seneca Lake!

Two Sisters Cottage is a centrally located getaway in Dresden, New York, at the intersection of Routes 14 and 54 and near many of the region's award-winning wineries on the Seneca and Keuka Lake Wine Trails. Nearby towns of Penn Yan, Geneva, Watkins Glen, and Hammondsport are a short drive away and offer shopping, antiquing, and more. We are 6 miles from groceries, gas, restaurants, and movie theaters, 8 miles from a state boat launch and boat rentals. A public playground and tennis courts are 1 mile from the cottage. On a rainy day, enjoy the cottage's cozy living room outfitted with a Sony 32-Inch 720p LCD HDTV and Blu-Ray DVD player and small library of popular movies as well as a selection of books and magazines ... or play board games or cards at the dining table as you enjoy the lake view.

Dresden is a rural area offering scenic drives through farmland and rolling hillsides of grape vineyards and past beautiful natural sights such as waterfalls. As well as boating, fishing, and other lake pursuits, nature lovers and active travelers will love the proximity to the Keuka Outlet Trail for biking, hiking, and exploring. Whether you seek outdoor adventure in your kayak or on your mountain bike or you prefer a stroll through antique stores followed by a glass of wine at one of our fabulous local wineries, you will love your stay at Two Sisters Cottage on Seneca Lake!

Payment for reservation is due at time of booking.

Relaxing Wine Country Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cabin as our first time with a vacation rental rather than a hotel, and we were not disappointed. The property was exactly as described, with our favorite aspect being the lovely waterside cabana. The owner was pleasant and responsive, so the whole experience went smoothly. We would certainly book this cottage again if we find ourselves in the area. Our only regret is that the vacation ended before we had our fill of the gorgeous view!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this adorable little cottage. The lakefront cabana and deck are perfect for sipping a cocktail, listening to music (iPhone speaker dock in both house and cabana), and relaxing. Very thoughtful owners that have covered all the bases and added a few nice extra touches. And, what a view!

Couldn't Be More Satisfied

  • 5 of 5

Every part of my experience with the cottage was great. Dealing with Darlene was easy and pleasant. The cottage itself has everything you would ever want or need and the cabana is a great addition. It was my first time visiting the finger lakes and it was so beautiful up there. This is a trip I would love to do every year and I certainly wouldn't mind staying at the cottage again.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Two Sisters cottage was very comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed. We appreciated the central heating on chilly mornings. The water views were wonderful from many spots: the dining room, the patio, the cabana, the cabana deck, and the dock, and we tried all of them. The sunrises and the huge fish jumping in the mornings added to the experience. We would definitely recommend it and hope to return.

Blissfull spring weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the cottage. It is extremely well maintained and clean. The kitchen had everything we needed and well stocked. We were two couples and enjoyed the wineries in the region, shopping at the outlets, and strolling around Geneva.

The cottage even had board games that we made use of, every convenience we needed was provided from iPod players, to wifi, to satellite. Looking fwd to a return trip in the summer or fall.

Perfect Little Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Two Sisters was the perfect, long weekend getaway! My boyfriend and I, as well as another couple, went up with plans to visit the local wineries and distilleries in the area. We spent our time during the day along the wine trail and spent our evenings by the fire on the private beach after we used the fully equipped kitchen!

The cottage is exactly as it is pictured and Darlene provided us with everything that we may need upon arrival - a basket full of coffee, wine, snacks & a trip booklet with everything mapped out!! We somehow managed to break a door within minutes of arriving at Two Sisters, but Darlene reassured us it would not be a problem and it was not. The cabana was perfect even with the cold fall weather as it does have heat, but I can imagine it would be even better in the summers over the lake.

I would recommend this property to people of all ages! We plan to visit the Finger Lakes again and will be surely contacting Darlene!!
