About Ken and Ellen Campbell

Teacher and business professional couple who always wanted a lake cottage. We rent this cottage on a limited basis and screen our tenants carefully.

Ken and Ellen Campbell purchased this house in 2002

Why Ken and Ellen Campbell chose Seneca Lake

Right on the water with lawns lakeside, beach area, and large lawn area across the road as well. Everything you need is here for a great vacation. Three season porch, huge deck, large dock and beautiful sunrises will leave you counting the days until you return. Very easy access from paved road, and all the amenities you could ask for.

What makes this house unique

Indoor Jacuzzi tub, many updates, easy access, quiet neighbors, plenty of parking.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We had a 3 night stay that worked out really well for our daughter's graduation weekend from Hobart, William and Smith College in Geneva. Great hospitality by owner, making it a welcoming and relaxed event. Having 4 bedrooms with double beds and the central common area worked out well for us with variety of relatives coming and going. Screened porch was nice for when a storm forced us in from the deck and everything we needed could be found. Reasonable price as compared to others we looked at in the area.

Beautiful, classic, relaxing...

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week long family vacation at this beautiful property! Ken and Ellen were courteous hosts who maintain the cottage beautifully. It is clean, comfortable, and has a nice open layout. The outdoor areas are relaxing, with a variety of seating, and you can be in the sun or shade, indoors or out and still enjoy the gorgeous view of the lake. The kayak and peddle-boat were a great bonus. Ken graciously offered to take us for a tour by motor boat to see some interesting sites. We were impressed with the uncrowded, clear, warm water of Seneca Lake. The cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood, great for walking, with an ice cream stand at the end of the road. There are dozens of vineyards and wineries very close by. The weather was beautiful, so we didn't feel the need to explore too much, and were very content to stay, relax and enjoy the lake!

A Great Relaxing Vacation Spot!!

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from spending a great week at this cottage! The cottage was very clean and well maintained, everything was as advertised. They have a great deck overlooking the lake for relaxing and a nice screened in porch if the weather isn't as agreeable. Luckily, we had great weather and spent most of our time relaxing and floating in the lake, which is just what we were looking to do. The location was terrific, with Watkins Glen, Geneva and Penn Yan all just a short drive away. There were a lot of wineries and breweries very close as well. The owners were very nice and they took the time to explain everything about the cottage as well as some local information and points of interest. They were very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely recommend this rental. We have already booked for next year! It is a great get away!

Amazing place!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for 3 wonderful nights and had a great time. The house is equipped with everything you can think of and the views were just stunning! The rooms are very nice and comfortable. Kenneth was incredibly nice and friendly, even helped us with a pack and play for our one year old daughter. A great place for family time or just relax and enjoy the lake. We have to come back in a wormer season to enjoy the lake! Highly recommended!!

A wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at this cottage. The owner made us feel very welcome. There was plenty of room inside and the four bedrooms were a real bonus. The outside decks were a nice size and the view of the lake was amazing. The deck and dock had great lighting and plenty of room to move around. We really loved the paddleboat and kayaks. A great place for families to enjoy their time together!
