FALL IN THE FINGER LAKES -- IT DOES NOT GET ANY BETTER !

Enjoy the Finger Lakes Region and beautiful Seneca Lake from this lovely cottage located eight miles south of Geneva on the east shore. We are truly one of the finest Finger Lakes vacation rentals.

We have great swimming, boating, fishing, water sports, sun, and absolutely gorgeous sunsets, all on lovely private lake frontage. We are ideally located in the heart of New York State's Finger Lakes, just minutes away from the best Finger Lake's attractions, restaurants, and wineries. We now have complementary wine tasting vouchers for all of our over 21 guests !

Our cottage has kitchen with glass-top stove, refrigerator and microwave; bath with shower; living room with cable HDTV, internet, Blu-ray player,streaming Netflix, DVD's, stereo radio, lots of books and games, a lovely stone fireplace, a woodstove, and propane furnace. The master bedroom has two twin beds which are convertible to a king using our professional twin to king conversion kit. We leave it in the king configuration unless you prefer the two twins. The second bedroom has two sets of bunk beds and a VHS, DVD TV player with lots of old children's VHS tapes. One of the bunks is twin over twin and the other is twin over double.

The cottage has a lovely roofed patio on the lakeside with outdoor fireplace, propane grill, adirondack chairs, lawn chairs, lounges, and picnic table. There is a front and back yard, a deck, six stairs to lake level, a dock, and a swim float. The lake depth is about two feet off the dock and very gradually deepens as you go out. The depth at the swim float is about five feet. An electric boat hoist is also available.

The cottage is completely furnished including dishes, silverware, coffee maker, pots and pans, etc. Just bring your sheets, towels and pillowcases. We are well off the road and have plenty of parking.

If you are fishing enthusiasts like we are, you will find some of the best fishing in the state on Seneca Lake. We catch bass and pan fish right off the dock. If you have a boat, we will show you how to catch the beautiful abundant Seneca Lake lake trout as well as the landlocked salmon, rainbows, browns perch and bass. Boat rentals are just five minutes away. We would be happy to arrange a rental for you.

This vacation property owner is a United States Coast Guard Licensed Captain and is offering renters special rates on fishing charters in his fully equipped boat. Special rates are $99 per person for half-day fishing (see link to Captain Joe's below). Boat tours with the Captain are also available.

We have written and assembled a “Welcome” book for our guests. It presents all of the information on the cottage and the area, including directions to the restaurants, wineries, attractions, bait stores, grocery stores, shopping areas, and more.

We are sure you will have a very enjoyable vacation at our cottage and look forward to hearing from you.

Tranquility On Lake Seneca

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time using HomeAway. You can search exactly what you need with Very easy booking. What a great site!!!

We are social workers and live a very busy life so we wanted something peaceful and relaxing in the Finger Lakes to Celebrate our Birthdays!! We saw this cottage on Seneca Lake and decided to book it immediately. It turned out to be one of the BEST birthdays ever! The sunsets on the Lake were just so beautiful! Even the rainy days were just so peaceful! The cottage was cozy and clean. Everything was exactly as stated in the description.

We met Joe (the owner) the morning after we arrived. What a pleasant experience. Joe provides you with binders with great suggestions for local dining, vineyard stops with free wine-tasting vouchers and local attractions for nearby day trips. Joe even gave us fresh basil and tomatoes from his garden. What a treat!!!

The Cottage on the Lake was a great experience and we enjoyed every moment there but of course all good things must come to an end. We definitely plan to book with Joe again. Thanks Again for Everything, until next time!!!!

Sincerely,

Xiara and Tanya

(New Jersey)

Perfect vacation spot for rest and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time to book a rental cottage on the lake and everything was exactly as stated in the description. Captain Joe and Pat have a comfortable cottage that fit our family of four (father, mother, and two adult children) perfectly. Our mission was twofold: to let Dad have a great fishing experience and to allow plenty of time for everyone to relax and unwind from the stress of work back home. Captain Joe found fish, but they just weren't biting. We'll have to try again next time. It helps that Joe offers charter fishing from his boat right next door.

The second part of our mission was accomplished almost immediately. We arrived just before sunset and were able to witness one of the typical daily events at the cottage from its back deck and spacious porch windows. The clear water calmed, and the sun sank slowly into the lake,taking all our fatigue and stress with it.

Follow the usage instructions in the notebook Joe provides. He anticipates your needs and is thorough because he wants you to have the best time ever while you're on Seneca Lake. You will find suggestions for dining, vineyard stops with free wine-tasting vouchers and local attractions for nearby day trips. Whether it's your first time to stay in the area or your fifty-first, you will feel at home from the moment you enter the back door.

If you should have questions or problems, ask Joe for help. He is only a few steps away, but knows how allow for your privacy.

We are missing the place already.

A great, quiet cottage on Seneca Lake!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! We needed a place not far from home to relax, drink some wine, do some fishing. The two of us went to Geneva and Seneca Falls for some shopping and sightseeing. We visited the Sampson Military museum, just down the road from the cottage. There are wineries all over the place, we liked 3 Bros. winery as well as Zugibe winery. Joe, the owner of the cottage, left us vouchers that got us into the wine tasting areas at no cost. Capt. Joe, as he is known on his boat, even braved the cold north wind and took me fishing! No matter how the cold wind blew, I still caught a lake trout! We found the cottage to be very well appointed with all the comforts of home....modern appliances, Blu-ray, tv with all the channels, outside grill, and a fireplace. When we got there we found the cottage to be spotless and ready to go. We had a great time, and will be back again to enjoy the lake and all of the surrounding area.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a great vacation spot. Right on the lake! The cottage is very well maintained and comfortable. We enjoyed waves splashing at the back door, sunsets were just beautiful! Right from the start Joe was a pleasure to deal with, pleasant and friendly and the whole rental experience was completely painless.The cottage is close to great state parks, we enjoyed hiking, waterfalls and the Corning Glass Museum. Outlets are just a short drive away. Of course the wineries are everywhere. Joe put together a very helpful welcome book that included brochures and directions to sightseeing activities, grocery stores, restaurants and wineries. It was a lovely week, enjoyed by all. Thanks Joe :)

Amazingly clean & quaint cottage right on the lake

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect location for our winery visits. Joe was very accommodating and everything we needed was right there. The sunsets on the lake were gorgeous as we sat on the covered porch or on the open deck. My husband enjoyed the 1/2 day fishing with Captain Joe and we enjoyed his catch on the grill at sunset. It was just my husband and I but the cottage would comfortably accomodate 4-6. If you looking for a getaway, I would highly recommend it. We had no problems whatsoever.

Stayed at this cozy cottage on Seneca Lake 5/18 - 5/22/15. The weather was not the best but the Sun God smiled on us one day and took advantage of the opportunity. Capt Joe is a very good resource and knowledgeable about where the fish are and how to catch them. The stay at the cottage was all you could ask for as far as conveniences and comfort. A beautiful view from the back patio and gorgeous sunset as it faces west. Good neighbors and quiet neighborhood. Would definitely stay there again. Economical vacation with many restaurants in nearby Geneva and Waterloo as well as local wineries to visit. Lots to do here or relax.
