Red Creek Cottage is an immaculate and cozy 3-BR, 2-story cottage on the western shore of Seneca Lake, 13 mi. north of Watkins Glen and 22 mi. south of Geneva. With over 200 ft of lake frontage, a stream with a drawbridge, and a couple acres of woods behind us, our cottage is the perfect retreat where you can feel surrounded by nature and truly relax with family and friends.

At 38 miles long, it is the second longest of the Finger Lakes in Upstate New York, perfect for power-boating, fishing, sailing, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, sailboarding, and other water sports.

A magical place

  • 5 of 5

We lucked out in that it wasn`t a wintry weekend...the owners aptly described the steep curvy driveway....thought they were exaggerating...not at all...but well worth it...very well kept cozy cottage, stocked with everything...our grandson loved the draw bridges to gain access to cottage...not far from many things to do...Watkins Glen, winiries, trails to hike, kayaking in peaceful on Seneca Lake this time of year...and lots to do at the cottage...movies,games, skipping the nice flat shale rocks across the lake...awakening to lovely sunrises...very nice

Great View & Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful cottage right on the waters edge. It has a firepit and tables outside which we utilized since it was unseasonably warm the weekend we stayed. I would definitely recommend . The beds are comfy, the kitchen was well stocked and the view is mesmerizing.

Charming cottage on beautiful Seneca Lake

  • 4 of 5

Lovely location and beautiful lake front property. We were 6 adults and managed just fine even with the 1 shower/bathroom. Everything you need for cooking or grilling or baking is right there. Had fun rowing on the lake, too. Toys and games for all ages are available in the cottage and lots of places to visit, hike or tour in the area. Owners provided detailed information. NOTE: Be careful on the access road, it's quite steep and gravel can get slippery.

Red Creek Cottage

We loved the house and property, especially the fire pit by the lake on an almost full moon evening. The drive down the hill can be rather challenging, however we managed just fine. Overall a wonderful stay!

Father-Son Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a 4 day weekend of hiking by day and amateur astronomy at night. While trees and lakeshore lights were a distraction, a lack of nearby large cities made the milky way visible each night. The property is honestly described, and was clean, well stocked, and well maintained. Owners included helpful notes on how to best make use of the property and find needed items. There was even a bound and well-organized notebook with tons of info on local attractions and dining. Overall, the atmosphere makes you fell like a welcome guest of the owners.
