A Relaxing Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

The log cabin that my boyfriend and I rented for our getaway weekend far surpassed our expectations. It was clean, stocked with everything we ever could have needed, comfortable, relaxing, and had a gorgeous view. It truly felt like home. The beds were really comfortable, the amenities in the kitchen were better than what i have in my own apartment, and the little extras like wifi, cable, and the small fireplace made it a truly amazing experience. And it was all for a great price! We can't wait to come back in the summer and bring our friends!

Bringing in the New Year at Cobtree

  • 5 of 5

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!

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

Fantastic Finger Lakes Experience!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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!

Cobtree Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

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 best location in the Finger Lakes

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely awesome. The house was full of everything needed for a great stay. Special touches like ice in a bowl in the freezer made the stay so much more special. Central to all activiteis in the Finger Lakes, close to shopping, wineries and boating. Our plan is to return often and relax with all the comforts of home. Thanks so much.

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.
