About Diane Tracy Rex

This cottage was being totally remodeled a few years ago when suddenly my husband, age 49 (who was doing the we owned a construction company) passed away. Nine months later I lost my son (19 yrs) in a snowmobile accident. After a couple of years I decided it needed to be finished in honor of my husband and my son. The cottage was completed in June 2011 just as 'John' wanted...and we named it 'You're a Star' Cottage because both of their favorite sayings was 'you're a star'. Outside above the front door you will find the sign that states this name. So, please visit and relax and enjoy the cottage and lake as my husband and son would love you to do!

Diane Tracy Rex purchased this cottage in 1996

Very nice place and owner.

We stayed there for 4 days. It's a very cute place, situated right on the water and no drive through street. We would recommend it to our friends and family members.

Great Cottage at the Lake

  • 5 of 5

It was a great place to stay. My friends and I arrived for the weekend. The views are amazing. There are beautiful decks with amazing view of the lake and beautiful interior too. It maybe rustic looking, but the place was well maintained and not rustic in the least. It was very nicely done. The neighbors were very nice as well and location was good. I would go here again.

My wife and I made a short trip to the Finger Lakes and stayed at Diane's place. Wow. It was immaculately kept, the scenes were beautiful, and the place itself was very comfortable. There is plenty to do within 20 minutes in every direction; from MacKenzie Childs to fishing on the dock this place had it all. Thank you to the owner for opening up their home to us. I am recommending it to a friend who is staying the same area this fall.

As great as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Our family decided to try the Finger Lakes as a vacation destination instead of the cottage country north of Toronto, and based on our time spent at the You're A Star cottage, we've already decided to make the Finger Lakes an annual family tradition.

First off, the cottage itself is absolutely beautiful. The pictures don't do justice to the level of craftsmanship and detail you'll immediately appreciate upon arrival. We were pleasantly surprised, especially with the roomy master suite that takes up the entire upstairs. The cottage is on a quiet lane and grounds are very well looked after. The entire week we were there we only saw two other cottages occupied, so it was particularly quiet and relaxing.

The lake itself is very shallow which is great, especially if you have small children. Our son and small dog were able to wade in and play at their convenience, as well as providing some peace of mind from a safety perspective.

Auburn was a very convenient drive, maybe 15 minutes, to grocery stores that have everything you need. Outlet shopping is also a short drive and worth the visit for some great deals.

I would recommend this cottage for anyone looking to relax and unwind. I would particularly recommend a trip to the Farmer's Market in Ithaca (30 minutes drive but worth it) as well as the Finger Lakes Drive-In Theater if you have a family.
