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.
This was a perfect little place for a vacation. We booked this place for a girls weekend and found it very cute and reasonably priced. This home and hot tub was very clean. We where a little concerned about the door to the sun porch since it didn't seem to shut proper and the side door I could not get to lock, however the main door was fine. I am looking forward to booking this place again in the near future.
Awesome home..it was perfect for our group.the view was heavenly..Pat was really helpful setting up our last minute request to book the rental.. We will surely come back once again..
I meant to write this review as soon as we got back but a family emergency took precedence and I forgot until I was cleaning today and found my receipt from our stay. I did not bother calling the proprietor because at that point there was no going anywhere else. So, here goes... when we arrived I just sat there and sobbed when I saw that we had paid a ridiculous amount of money to stay in a trailer for a week. It was a clean trailer but still a trailer. Trying to make the best of it - we called it the "mobile cottage." This trailer is about 15 minutes from the inn that is mentioned in the other reviews. This place is isolated and the neighbors were not friendly.
-The air conditioning for the bedroom consisted of a unit that looks like a humidifier that vents through the window. When you plug it in you can't walk beside the bed because the room is so small. And it is loud - so loud that I had to sleep on the couch.
-The closet consists a one rod in the bedroom in a nook that is open to the room. We kept our clothes in our bags on the bed in the other bedroom which I am glad we didn't need to use because the bed takes up the entire floor space.
-The bathroom is old, ugly and the shower is moldy. When you step up into the shower a tall person would hit their head on the ceiling. Luckily we are both under 6 feet. Not enough hot water for two showers in a row. Most of the lights in the bathroom were burned out so you could barely see at night. I replaced what I could.
-There is a large hole at the bottom of the outside door where something as large as a rat could get in though we didn't see any. We kept the interior door closed all the time in case something decided to visit.
-We were told we could take our kayaks and put in right at the water by the "cottage" but it is a long walk down steps to a not at all scenic lake. It is very industrial. Also, whoever came to mow the grass flipped our kayaks right side up and mowed so all the grass went inside. We were livid because it was really unnecessary.
We had a great time when we weren't at the "mobile cottage" so we stayed there as little as possible. I would not recommend this property unless they drop the price to $100 or less per night.
I called Pat and Brenda the day of my arrival to see if they could accomodate me with my dog on a very last minute notice. It was great- the rental was clean and was stocked with kitchen utensils. First ever vacation with my dog- and he got to swim in the nearby stream for the first time... my heart was overflowing with joy.
On the downside- there were a TON of mosquitos all around the house- and we barely used the hot tub, grill, or fire pit because it was a full on WAR with blood sucking!! If you choose this place- be prepared with anything stronger than citronella candles!
We were of group of six that stayed here recently and we had such a magnificent time my mother was still talking about it three days later. It was very clean, spacious, and inviting. The location was great and not too noisy. The hotel exceeded our expectations in every way, we won't be staying anywhere else when we visit New York again. The Savannah House, as well as Pat and Brenda, are unmatched.. we will see them again soon!!
My husband and I treated our daughter and her fiance to a weekend on Seneca lake. We found Brenda and Pat to be very accommodating and the rooms were extremely nice, very clean and had a very nice lake view, plus centrally located along Seneca Lake. We will be visiting them again in May, and are truly looking forward to it.
We are located just off on Rt 14 overlooking Seneca Lake - 15 miles north of Watkins Glen, and 20 minute south of Geneva - within 10 minutes of 12 wineries - two wineries within walking distance, and within 30 minutes of 50 wineries.
