Cobtree Vacation Rental Homes resort in the beautiful Finger Lakes Region of Upstate New York, just South of the City of Geneva and right on the Seneca Lake wine trail.
Cobtree purchased this House in 2005
Why Cobtree chose Geneva
The Finger Lakes offered an amazing investment in upstate New York with the regions economic and tourism growth being phenomenal year on year. It is also a stunningly beautiful place in which to live and work and the climate has a full four seasons and relatively temperate over the winter months. Waking up each day to this beauty and to be able to market this area to our many lucky guests from around the world is very rewarding in itself.
What makes this House unique
Right on the Seneca Lake wine trail, beautiful views over Seneca Lake, Nearby to the Hobart and William Smith Colleges and Pet friendly too!
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Clean and comfortable.
We had a great weekend focused around the farm to fork Gran Fondo (supported bike ride) out of Atwater Vineyards near Burdett NY at the south end of Seneca Lake. Keuka cottage worked well as our home base. It was adequately stocked with the exception of an empty propane tank for the gas BBQ. The binder in the cottage with hard copy instructions for the rental property was outdated and led us astray for where to find a full propane replacement tank. More accurate instructions were in the email sent to us before we checked in but they were not as handy as the binder at the time we wanted to BBQ. We also could not find any soap for the dish washer. For the high cost of the rental I felt we should not have to worry about empty propane tanks, dishwasher detergent and how much toilet paper we used during our stay. A nice home but Overpriced with some amenities lacking that we have come to expect from home away rentals.
Thank you for posting your review. As you correctly pointed out, the updated instructions were sent to you by email in advance of your rental as indeed was a complete list of our starter pack that includes the items in your review. Perhaps if you had noticed that we supply dishwasher tablets and not liquid detergent, you would have found them in the cupboard under the kitchen sink.
As for the cost of the property, if you compare our rates to other properties both on this site and on others, you will see that we are very competitive.
In fact, we have not raised our rates in over 3 years.
We are pleased that you were readily able to change your propane bottle and that you did enjoy your BBQ
We are only ever a phone call away and there are several phone numbers posted on the front door of the house in which to telephone for help, advice or assistance.
However, thanks for posting your concerns on this review after you have left the property and without giving us any opportunity to put things right for you. Much appreciated!
I don't like the fact that if you have an extra person they charge. It was hard to find what the minimum was.
Great though that the dog fee was only $20.
As for the place itself the beds were very comfortable and clean. I little dated. The only complaint was the Kitchen, not enough spoons or basic glassware. Some of the cooking utensils were not very clean. They were actually sticky.
The area was nice and quiet!
Thank you for your kind review and constructive comments.
All of the information about included occupancy and rates is published both on Homeaway, on our own website and our rental contract emailed to guests prior to checking in.
We are therefore sorry that you were unable to read this information.
All of our Rustic Log Cabins have been specifically designed to be “Retro” and not overly modernized as otherwise spoil the charm of a real log cabin.
Meanwhile however, we have carried out an inventory on what is available for guests to use and replaced a few missing utensils.
We are pleased that otherwise you enjoyed the accommodations at Cobtree and liked the fact that our pet charge is a bargain too!
Bringing in the New Year at Cobtree
Just back from another great stay at Cobtree. We stayed in the Keuka Cottage. Everything was perfect! The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is well-equipped, the place is spotlessly clean! Our Lab had a great time too. the place is so quiet and peaceful. We will definitely be back!
Thank you very much Patricia for your kind and generous review. We try hard to be one of the best vacation rental resort destinations although sadly, as is human nature, we cannot always get this right 100% of the time. On this occassion we are pleased that you were satisfied with your accommodations and the service that we do provide here at Cobtree
Cruising the Tropics Weekend
Needed a place to stay during the "Cruising the Tropics" weekend with our daughter and her Labrador Retriever. I found Cobtree online and found all reviews to be positive. We stayed in the Keuka Cottage. The house was very clean an comfortable. The dog settled in without any problems. The pictures are accurate, with some upgrades (such as flat screen TVs in the living room and master bedroom). Owners are unobtrusive but nearby if there is any problem (we had none). Beautiful grounds around the cottages and cabins, with landscaping that was starting to bloom, must be quite lovely in the later spring and summer. Everything is well-maintained. We have rented several homes in the Finger Lakes and Cobtree is the best! We will be back!
Than you for your kind review and Jane and I both look forward to your return visit to stay with us here in the beautiful Finger Lakes of upstate New York!
Fantastic Finger Lakes Experience!
What a wonderful weekend stay at Cobtree Vacation Rental Resort. Greeted by the rich smell of cedar, our log cabin quickly became home with the comfortable furniture and luxurious linens. The beds gave us all great night’s sleep and everything we needed for a great weekend away was ideally placed throughout the home. If I had to choose a favorite part, it would be the great front porch for it’s comfortable furniture and great views. We plan on coming back to Lake Geneva for many years and plan on staying at Robert and Jane’s Cobtree homes for each and every year.
The beds at Cobtree are renowned for giving our guests a good nights sleep particularly the beds in our log cabins. Night time is also a great time at Cobtree as being out in the countryside and with very little ambient light, the night sky is simply stunning and if you have an IPhone4 there is a neat little AP that you can download (using our free WIFI on site of course) that you can use to locate all the stars and planets by name and see the galaxies. Sitting out under the porch of one of our log cabins is such a joyful experience together with friends drinking for example, a locally produced wine or a beer from one of the many local micro breweries located in the Finger Lakes.
We welcome you to stay at Cobtree - The real Finger Lakes Experience!
Our stay at the Cobtree Resort was enjoyable from the moment we arrived! Our host Robert greeted us with his delightful English humour which made us feel like we were friends forever. The cabin (Honeoye) we stayed in was par excellant! The rooms were spotless and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The beds were very comfy and our surroundings quiet! We are looking forward to our next stay in the Finger Lakes and we will most certainly choose Cobtree again! Dennis and Maria
The Finger Lakes in Upstate New York - In a setting of 9000 square miles, there are 11 Lakes and over 1000 waterfalls and numerous gorges, which were formed at the end of the ice age when tremendous grinding pressures gouged enormous holes in the land forming what is now the Finger Lakes region of “Up State New York”.
These amazing Lakes range from 3 miles (5km) to 40 miles (64km) in length and from 30 feet (10m) to over 632 feet (194m) in depth!
Native American Legend says that the Fingers Lakes were the impression left behind by the creator when he reached down to bless the land. Whatever the truth, the Finger Lakes are a wonderful place to Escape to, to “Just get away” and where you can relax and do either very little or do a lot. To explore the many exciting places dotted around the region and to have that perfect vacation. Whilst you are here, why not take a leisurely drive to visit some of over 70 award winning wineries and restaurants.
Golf: There are also several first class golf courses nearby including the Seneca Lake Country Club where you can also hire golfing equipment.
Ski: Bristol Mountain is located at 5662 Route 64, Canandaigua, NY 14424.
