Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing the cottage with us!

The photos don't do it justice!! (As you already know, we have booked again for later this summer- and I'm quite sure in the fall as well..)



The memories made will never be forgotten - trying to get a fire started only to have a thunderstorm knock it out-then the wind-then rain again, made for lovely sleeping at night. Your location is fantastic in relation to our favorite wineries. We typically vacation in Boston, but after a few days in this perfectly relaxing area, we think you have converted us! Thanks Again!! (I think I can survive the last three weeks of teaching Pre-K now!)

  • 5 of 5

we spent ten days at this cottage for the most part it was the best stay we ever had on seneca lake the only downfalls was the big party at the motel down the street on saturday cars lined up down the road all day and blocked the dock and lake view our stay was still excellent we did feel it was priced a little high but we still thank you for a great gettaway

Pictures don't give it justice!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is awesome. Sure, you have the neighbors house which "looks nicer", but we would rather this place, all day!!! I guarantee you have a better experience. We plan on returning. Like everyone else has said, Kathy Cotter is the best. It just feels like a lake cabin and obviously people treat it that way. "Pay it forward." Take something from the cabinets, leave something behind for the next. At least that's how we felt. The lake is gorgeous; We wished the water wasn't so choppy so we could take a boat out.... Which the local rentals are cheap. $150 for a pontoon for four hours, deal. We did go to the bar which is super close, but they shut down at 9 on a Friday. That's all I got.

Cozy Lake cottage with a fabulous view

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week at the cottage. It was so relaxing and peaceful. When we arrived Kathy had a snack waiting - which was delicious by the way. The views were fabulous and I have great photos of the sunrises and the lake. We had a blast visiting the local wineries and breweries and then coming home and relaxing around the fire pit. Our dogs enjoyed their stay as well especially in the screened in porch and laying in the sun. That was one of my favorite spots for coffee and reading in the mornings. Can't wait to go back!!

Touch of Heaven by the Lake

  • 3 of 5

This was a great spot. Excellent lake views and great amenities. The cottage was very comfortable and spacious for a one bedroom. Lots of outdoor space for camp fires. We had a fantastic time.

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this cottage very much ! We wanted a very stress free vacation and we got it !! The cabin had a perfect view of the lake and the road is very quiet. We went in September and had beautiful weather for wine tasting. We sat outside by the fire pit every night. Please note, this cottage is very "lived in" and not like renting a brand new empty cottage. The owner has a lot of her stuff there and you feel like you're visiting someone's home. It could use updating for sure and the kitchen is very small, no dishwasher. We didn't mind having to wash dishes lol !! Kathy the owner is wonderful to deal with and answered my emails within a few hours. She even worked with us with checking in earlier.

Cozy Cottage on Sencca Lake

  • 5 of 5

We once again stayed at our favorite cottage on beautiful Seneca Lake. Just love the coziness of the cottage. The weather was beautiful and our grandson swam in the lake everyday. We like the big yard and the view of the lake is fantastic! It is within walking distance of two restaurants, Show Boat and Rainbow Cove. Cathy Cotter is always in tune to your needs and provides a nice, restful place to relax and enjoy the area.
