About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 8-10

Cuba Lake is a family friendly, serene lake that provides numerous opportunities for enjoyment year round. This North Shore locale boasts spectacular sunsets and a sweeping view of the lake from the indoors and the lanai, lakeside patio and deck. Rooms are spacious and the majority provide fantastic views of the lake.

The main level (at street level), has wrap around windows and lanai with an inviting open floor plan incorporating the living room, kitchen and dining room which is splendid for entertaining. The lower level, first floor at lake level, has an additional galley style kitchen, washer and dryer, 1/2 bath, billiards and beautiful Walnut bar. The lower level opens onto the lake front patio which connects with the dock and shoreline. The spaciousness of the rooms and multilevel design easily accommodates large families or friendly gatherings.

The house has its own private dock which accommodates several boats and is wide enough to easily fit two lounges for sunbathing. There are two kayaks for your enjoyment and a motor boat available for an additional rate.

The fall foliage in Cuba and the surrounding area is breathtaking, with the lake itself providing a spectacular foil to the jeweled tones of the leaves.

Winter activities abound with easy access to both cross country skiing and snowmobile trails. Holiday Valley Ski Resort and Ellicottville are only 37 minutes away. Cuba Lake also offers excellent ice fishing.

Why John S. Booth III chose Cuba

I have spent a great deal of time at each of my properties and I think what I love the most about this one is that it has a superb layout and location for entertainment and enjoyment year round.

What makes this house unique

I love the way the lake is always right there, whether you are on the lanai or even inside! And the house is just spectacular for entertaining and family fun- long, lovely days can be had here during every season.

Great time, great property

  • 5 of 5

This trip was great. Our family of 8 adults and 4 kids fit no problem into this large 3 story lake house. The view and access to the lake were perfect with walkout doors to the dock and large wrap around porch. The first floor bar, tv, fridge, bathroom and pool table were great for late night adult fun while the kids slept in the large 3rd floor bedrooms. The second floor open concept kitchen, dining area, and living room were great for family meals with plenty of space for all 12 of us to cook and spread out to eat, play, and talk. With separate bedrooms and bathrooms on all 3 floors i didnt need to see my in-laws in their pajamas or fight for a toilet in the morning. The kayaks were great fun for the kids and they even caught some fish off the dock with a novelty iron man fishing pole. We honestly couldnt have been happier with our time there. John was a great host who let us come early, leave late, and wasn't hard to get a hold of, communicating over the phone with me throughout the stay. The house was clean and well kept and the space and amenities were more than adequate for all of us. I will agree the tap water smells like farts and i wouldnt drink it, but thats just city folk not wanting well water. We came prepared with plenty of bottled water knowing this would be the case. I cant knock the property for this because its just what you get in this area. Bring water or just more beer and then breath through your mouth when you do dishes. Meanwhile enjoy the lake, view, and fun times with your kids while staying in this amazing property. Still cant get over the ammount of space in this place or how awesome that first floor is at night. We can't wait to go back.

Wonderful accomadations

We enjoyed being in the cottage for the weekend. Everything was provided, the view from every window was beautiful, and the rooms were spacious. It was great to entertain our extended family.

Disappointing....not worth the money

  • 1 of 5

The cottage looks great from the outside and is located on the lake with a wonderful view. The wrap around porch is great. This is where it ends. When we walked in the house it had a terrible odor. The house was stifling in June. Opening the windows to get some air proved to be a nightmare as the screens had holes and allowed the bugs to take over. Be careful of the stair railing. It is not secure and is a danger! The water smells and is undrinkable. We bought gallons of water for the week to drink and wash our hair. My granddaughter cried when we put her in her bed. The noise from the attic ventilation fan clanked and was deafening and the room was stifling hot! The furniture was ridiculous. It was filthy and very dated. I do not mind old if it is clean. But... the furniture was bad. The carpet kept my granddaughter's feet black. There is one usable TV in the house located in the basement. The others are older than I am. No ceiling fans for air movement! The floors are uneven. The tubs are yellow and look filthy. The owner had told us one year prior to our visit and when we secured the contract, we could use the boat. There was no boat. If you go...bring your own bed linens. Those provided smell musty. It is a shame. With a little attention and a few investments the property could be nice. I would definitely not recommend.

Tons of space!!

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for the out-of-towers visiting for our family reunion. Having three levels was great for different activities, especially for the younger and older "kids". The absolute best part were the two outdoor spaces! The stairs into the lake and the shallow water are awesome for small children. As is the good sized grassy area. Unfortunately, we had a lot of problems with the hot tub and were only able to use it a couple of the days. I would recommend this house and we will be renting it again next year!

We loved our time at the lake house (it is definitely more than a cottage). The house was well appointed and there were lots of areas for us to spread out and not be on top of each other. The kids loved the lower level with pool table. We spent most of our stay out on the dock - fishing, swimming, and kayaking. The hot tub was a bonus. The owner was very helpful and answered any of our questions quickly. Cuba Lake is beautiful and the views of the sunset from the house are amazing.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Cuba Lake and our first time staying at this cottage. There are nine of us (2 families) and the layout of this cottage made for a very enjoyable visit. The views and the location of this rental are the best! The second kitchen on the bottom floor with the pool table and bar area, the grill and hot tub on the lake side porch made it perfect for two families to enjoy their together time and alone time. The bedrooms upstairs are very spacious and the main floor living space is roomy and has spectacular views of the lake from the top deck (which is covered – a great place for my morning coffee). The garage made it easy to unpack and pack without getting wet (we had a rainy departure day) and the extra parking to the side of the house was very convenient. The owner had added a fire pit which we enjoyed every evening. My only complaint, which really isn’t a complaint, was the smell of the water but the owner let us know about that before our arrival. John was very helpful and if we travel back to Cuba Lake, we would definitely like to stay at this wonderful cabin.
