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!

Magical, Peaceful and Everything We Hoped For!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at the lovely cottage on Seneca Lake. Our stay was restful, gorgeous, and the cottage was everything we hoped it would be. Adrian was prompt, professional and fantastic to communicate with. Words can't really express how magical a place this is. The house itself was cozy and felt like home to us for the short time we were there. So great to sit out on the porch and just watch the sunset, which we did every night while eating dinner. My husband is from the Fingerlakes region and even he was impressed! Great location for those wanting to explore the region (and the lovely wines therein). We had perfect weather for our stay. It was hot, so the added pleasure of being able to jump off the dock and go canoeing every morning was wonderful. The company Adrian recommend regarding the canoe rental was great (Regan's). We highly, highly recommend brunch, lunch or dinner at the Stonecate Cafe in Hector, which is very close to the cottage. We would highly recommend the cottage to anyone (friends family and those we don't know!). Expect, don't take our week...we are coming back! :)

Peaceful seclusion

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a peaceful secluded cottage way back in the woods, look no further! As you drive down the nearly half mile drive through beautiful woods full of deer and chipmunks, you can feel the stress melt away. The cottage itself is unique, nicely decorated, and comfortable. It might not be for everyone, but we like unique! It is pet friendly, and our dogs loved spending the week trying in vain to catch chipmunks. Unfortunately the weather was pretty awful the whole week we were there, but we hiked anyway, just didn't make a lot of use of the dock. That's always a risk for any vacation, no fault of the cottage. Adrian was very quick to respond to all questions, and our deposit was returned promptly. Thanks for everything!

Many Wonderful Memories

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with friends for a week at this wonderful cottage & we absolutely adored it. Many of the other 5 star descriptions accurately capture the quirky, vintage, classic, LOVELINESS that is this tranquil, serene, charming, escape. Spending time on the back deck overlooking the lake, star gazing on the dock, grilling on the beach, enjoying being tucked away in the woods among many moments to treasure here. If you can manage to pull yourself away from the house, the local area has so much to offer as well, especially in incredibly close proximity to this tucked away retreat. The restaurants, breweries, distillaries, etc... are all top notch & the local farm to table cuisine is absolutely incredible. Plenty of hiking & gorgeous scenic views. I can't say enough about Adrian, the home-owner. She is extremely communicative, fair, and is a delight to interact with. I have many happy memories from my time at this cottage & I would love to come back and make more.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

It's not a new place, and it's a little quirky -- but it makes for a lovely week-long relaxing getaway. Must be able to climb steps. The front porch that overlooks the lake was our favorite place (even when it poured rain!), but the well-stocked kitchen made the favorites list as well. Lots of windows and a breeze made it comfortable inside on even the hottest day. No mention was made in the description of the waterfall that runs alongside the entire property, so that was a bonus. Nothing quite like going to sleep to the sound of a babbling brook! The location is convenient to Watkins Glen, Seneca vineyards, Ithaca, and more. We'd come here again and recommend it to you.
