We love the Finger Lakes Region in general and Lamoka Lake is ideal because it is quieter than the bigger lakes yet you can take a boat directly to Waneta through the channel if you want something different. The public island is a nice place to swim or picnic or pick wild blueberries. The water here is more shallow so it warms up nicely and there are no zebra mussels (razor clams) so you can just walk in barefoot.
The wildlife is spectacular. We like to wake up in the morning and see a heron on the dock or a bald eagle flying overhead. Osprey and kingfishers are quite common. The carp try to beach themselves foraging for food in our shallow areas by the rasberry bushes. My favorite time is at night by the bonfire listening to bullfrogs. I like to look out over the lake where we barely see another light or a house. The stars are nice in August; no light pollution. Every now and then the sound of a fox or pack of coyotes in the distance reminds you that you really are outdoors.
This cozy two bed, one bath provides everything needed for a fun-filled getaway with a private dock, canoes and a row boat provided, terrific fishing, plentiful outdoor seating, and a fire pit. The cabin is comfortable and well-equipped for an unplugged vacation. It is close to many local attractions such as Watkins Glen, the Corning Museum of Glass and wineries. The setting of the property affords good privacy and offers stunning opportunities to appreciate nature- we had the pleasure of seeing many birds of prey during our stay including osprey and bald eagles. This relatively affordable rental will not disappoint.
The view was WONDERFUL, the property clean and well maintained! There was quite a diverse selection of books and videos. A 7 year old caught 5 fish in under an hour right off the dock! GREAT day for Grandpa and Grandson!
We were looking for a place close to home to relax, read, and reconnect. We found it!!
A most relaxing respite from the 24/7 news cycle. We had a wonderful time reading, fishing, visiting the excellent local wineries and restaurants.
WE WERE LOOKING FOR A PLACE NOT TOO FAR FROM HOME TO TAKE MY 82 YR OLD MOTHER IN LAW AND THAT OUR SON AND HIS FAMILY (KIDS 1 & 8) COULD STOP FOR A FEW DAYS TOO.THIS SURE WAS IT! THE HOUSE WAS SPOTLESS CLEAN! BEDS ALL COMFEY; BATHROOM GOOD SET UP EVEN FOR MY MOTHER IN LAW; TOYS FOR THE KIDS MOVIE S WELL STOCKED; FISHING WAS GREAT AS GOOD FROM THE DOCK AS BOAT! EVERY KIND OF FISH IN THE LAKE WE CAUGHT AT LEAST 1 OF; MOST DAYS AT LEAST 30 FISH FROM THE DOCK; LOTS OF BIRDS AND EVEN A DEER AND BABY FAWN NURSING AND EVEN A VISIT FROM THE EAGEL! WE WILL HIGHLY RECOMEND THIS AND WILL RETURN OUR SELF! I WENT HOME KICKING AND SCREEMING BUT MY HUSBAND SAID I HAD TO GO BACK TO REALITY! WE LEFT RESTED AND TOTALY PLEASED WITH OUR VAC. CHOICE!
Great year of fishing 3 out of 4 seniors caught largest large mouth of life time! Great location, great owners, and great fishing. Thanks for the opportunity!
Just got back from Lamoka lake.The weather was perfect as well as this beautiful hide-a-way lake house. The house was clean and neat upon arrival. The fishing was great (a real fishermans spot). The family enjoyed the privacy and closeness. Shopping, winery's, golf and restaurants all withing a short drive. Forget the big lakes and relax at this cozy private lake house.
