About the property

Nestled in the trees, overlooking Seneca Lake, beautiful sunsets

Private beach & boat dock. Enjoy swimming in refreshing clean water. Jump from the dock or wade from the shore. Bring your boat and tie up to the dock or rent kayaks, canoes and paddleboards from a local company that delivers them to you at the cottage. Home was originally built 1910 as a guest cottage to larger family cottage next door and over the years several additions /improvements have been added, though the vintage charm remains. Original front living room opens onto covered porch overlooking the lake, beach & dock. Larger living/dining room in the back, added later, has a wood burning fireplace & baseboard heating. Master bedroom & kitchen have baseboard heat, too. Large kitchen is well equipped with any /everything one might need to make the most elaborate meal-and/or a microwave for reheating leftovers from one of the great local winery restaurants! Ideal location feels private & secluded yet close to so much. On the Seneca Wine trail. Watkins Glen is 10 minutes away, Ithaca and Corning 30 minute drive.

Wireless internet is provided.

Smart television and expanded cable

Sheets are left folded, fresh from a professional laundry service, at the foot of each bed, so you know they are clean. 2 bath, hand towels and washcloths left for each guest.

Quality in the details

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 2 parents and 2 college aged children. In our stay we found the cottage to be welcoming, clean and comfortable. The sheets, towels and soaps provided were of good quality. We got the sense that the owener cared about how pleasant our stay was. There is a good view of the lake from the porch of the house and the dock is easy to get to and private. The wi-fi was good enough to stream movies on laptops and play games. We would stay there again.

Amazingly charming spot on a Seneca Lake

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 days late into summer in Adrian's lovely family cottage. The wraparound windows in many of the rooms made us feel like we were camping in the woods, and the sound of the tree frogs, crickets and hooting owls at night gave us some of the best rest and sleep we've had in years. An amazingly peaceful spot, with a fantastic view of and beach right on the lake. The cottage has a rustic feel, but is comfortable, cozy and made us feel like we were spending time at a much loved family heirloom. The fact we could stay here with our two small dogs, made the stay even more amazing. They loved sniffing out the beach and woods.

Thanks so much for letting us share this amazing jewel of a place!
