About Sarah Marino

We love Seneca Lake. Kayaking on the lake is fabulous. The screened porch protects you from the weather and makes you feel like you are actually on the dock. Waking up to the water is the best part.

Sarah Marino purchased this cottage in 2007

We love Seneca Lake, every day the lake changes and is beautiful. Just waking up to the lake is a site. Very quiet.

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here and wished we could have stayed longer! The cottage had everything we needed (and more!) for a wonderful vacation, including great lake views - especially from the rocking chairs on the porch! The interior of the cottage was just beautiful - extremely clean and nicely furnished and decorated. We had so much fun boating on Seneca Lake - which is gorgeous - everyday. And the surrounding area is amazing! The location is perfect - not too far from either Watkins Glen or Geneva. The owners even called us on our second day to make sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again!

  • 1 of 5

From the first day, mice poo in kitchen draws, dog hair under kitchen table, bedrooms, and screened in pourch, called Sarah, and she had the exterminator came out that Wed., also should advise, can't swim, do to over load of lake weeds. We had to keep our plates. Silverwear, glasses on the table, hand washed, because dish washer not working properly. Sarah did bring a note of White Resling wine, a d apologized, but we still had mice poo in kit draws, and dog hairs, so I vacuumed, but did not clean up the mouse poo, just wasn't expecting the non clean up, it rely put a damper on the stay, but we made the best of it. Sincerely, Mary Taddeo

Owner's Response: Mary, We sincerely apologize that you were disappointed in your stay. The issues you experienced are not typical. Located in a rural area near the water we take every measure to prevent pest issues within our home and have a monthly pest control service in place. As you mentioned in your review, we immediately notified our extermination service of your findings. We were under the assumption that they were going to clean up and take care of the issue when they arrived at the cottage. Please know how sorry we are that it was not taken care of to your satisfaction. We have since switched companies and feel confident this will not be an problem going forward. The dishwasher and dog hair are two issues that we would have immediately addressed had we been informed during your stay. Our cleaning/maintenance crew take great pride in their work and would have happily stopped down and addressed any short comings. As you can see by the number of 5 star reviews our cottage has received over the years, we are deeply committed to insuring our guests enjoy their stay at our home. We do thank you for your review. The feedback is always valuable and helps us strive to improve the cottage for each guest. Enjoy the rest of your summer and thank you for visiting the Seneca Lake! All the best, The Marino's

Cottage is exactly as pictured.

  • 5 of 5

When you look at the pictures on Homeaway, that is just what the cottage looks like. The decorating and furnishings are beautiful. It's been well maintained and was a joy to rent. We spent a week there and didn't have any problems. We vacation with our daughter and son in law, so the 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms were a great bonus. This is the first time we had a rental with 2 bathrooms, what an advantage. Although, it was cool during our week, and didn't use the kayak's. We did enjoy the dock and watching the fish.

We usually stay on the East side of Seneca Lake, but after staying on the West side. We are considering changing. This location is close to Penn Yann N.Y. that had a wonderful meat market/bakery (Morgans) and several great restaurants.

This location is only 15 minutes from Geneva or less than 1/2 hour from Watkins. We spend our days at the wineries all around Seneca Lake and at other Finger lake locations. Very convenient location to all of this.

I would highly recommend this rental. The only draw back was it's dirt road, and parking is very limited. Since we were driving an MKZ and our kids had an SUV, it was tight. However, wonderful neighbors allowed us crowd them. And as the ad states there is plenty of parking at the top of the hill for people you invite over.

We would consider renting it again next year.
