We had a very relaxing stay. The property is off the beaten path and just what we were looking for. Cottage is updated and clean with all the amenities you need. The kitchen was complete with good appliances (including toaster, blender, and coffee maker) as well as spices, oil, soap, sponge, etc. The master bedroom was spacious and comfortable. The living room/family room was comfortable and a great place to enjoy dinner and play games, when it was too hot to sit outside. The cottage has central air, which was a blessing during the very hot week we stayed. Three kayaks and a rowboat are available (we brought our own kayaks) . Fishing is tough off the dock because of the duckweed and heavy aquatic vegetation, but a short paddle out of the cove and the fishing was great! We fished a lot and caught fish on every trip (we released them all so they are still there for others to catch!). There are a lot of chain pickerel and smallmouth bass about plus perch and panfish. The area is secluded and very quiet. There is a close neighbor, but we barely heard or saw them. But their cat was a regular visitor to our deck and kept us company all week! Overall, it was very relaxing and we had a great time.
I was beyond excited when booking cathrine cottages for the watkins glen wine festival. The property is so beautiful and clean it exceeded expectations . I loved everything about my stay including the gift basket the owner prepares for each cabin. I look forward to visiting the property again.
