Guestbook comments from the owner

We hope winter is a good time for you. It is beautiful in spite of the adjustments it requires. We stayed in the Savannah House in late July last summer. We walked the Watkin's Glen trail (twice) and Taugannock Falls State park in Ithaca (seven dollars a day to visit all the State Parks you can get to!) and on the rainy day we went to the Museum of the Earth just North of Ithaca. In addition, Watkin's Glen and the Amish Farm just North of you were wonderful places to visit. It was a pleasure to relax mornings and evenings at your motel. Clean, marvelously appointed and surrounded by the beauty of one of the most wonderful areas on earth, the Finger Lakes. You promised me we would be glad we chose your motel for our four day stay and you were so right. We look forward to returning next summer for a getaway.

Cozy weekend by the lake!

The cottage was perfect for our quick weekend away! Everything was perfectly clean and had everything we needed. The lake is beautiful and we really enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings!

Private Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

I really wasn't expecting how private this rental is. It's lake view but only a short walk to the lake. Beautiful Sunrises. The house is a trailer but it's clean and decorated with little touches to make it a relaxing getaway. The hot tub is wonderful. Short drive to everything. Fire pit to relax at night. The host are very good historians of the area too.

Great place to spend a week

  • 4 of 5

Just spent a terrific week here with my family. A great place if you have a small child, within walking distance of a playground (and ice cream), and a short drive from a number of attractions in the finger lakes. My only complaint would be I wish the owners had provided a little more instruction about the place (maybe a binder in the property) but it was a very small worry. A great way to spend a vacation!

Finger Lakes Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our stay in the finger lakes! We were traveling with a toddler and a dog and they both had plenty of room inside and out. The lake is a great view but not close enough for the dog or kid to jump in. Wish we could have enjoyed the hot tub more but it was too cold and windy. The cottage is a perfect location. It was in the middle of everything and we were only 5 minutes from Penn Yan and wineries and breweries were even closer.
