Very cute, unexpectedly under construction

  • 3 of 5

Robyn, the owner, was very prompt and thorough in her communication which definitely is very much appreciated. The cottage is very cute and in good condition. It is tiny on the inside, but the huge covered porch definitely makes up for it. We rented the cottage for some of our wedding guests to stay at, and they really enjoyed the space. A week before our arrival, Robyn sent me an email to inform me that the bottom floor of the cottage would be under construction and not usable. The yard definitely looked like a construction site as well. Thankfully Robyn handled it very well and gave us a bit of a discount. Would definitely rent this again.

Perfect for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I'm late on my review but wanted to say we had a wonderful time. We had 3 children ages 7-17 staying with us and plenty of room. The back deck is the center of this home and great views of the lake and sunset. We had a fire every night and ample wood was supplied. The kids loved the slide and exploring around the waters edge. We rented a boat a few days and nice to dock while we ate a quick lunch and back on the water. There is a steep stairway to the lakefront, but very doable for most people. The neighbors are great, friendly but not intrusive. We enjoyed the occasional visit from their 4 legged friends. Would recommend.

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

This place was so welcoming and comfortable. The front porch, overlooking Lake Seneca, is a delight. We lived out there, quiet mornings, awesome sunsets and easily containing two 2 year olds. Thanks, Robyn.

Great lake front retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely house! Except for sleeping (plenty of bedrooms and beds) our time was spent outside enjoying the great lake view on the large deck (awesome sunsets), down on the dock sun bathing, swimming and watching the kiddos slide down the water slide, canoeing or up in the spacious side yard cooking on the grill or enjoying a nightly bonfire. The lovely village of Watkins Glen is a 10 minute car ride away, with quality restaurants (Wildflower Crooked Rooster & Jerlando's Pizza), shops, boat rentals and of course a Walmart for your various needs. Also, a hike through the gorgeous Watkins Glen State Park Gorge is an awesome experience. Wine your thing? Well you will be in heaven. Wineries are all over the East side of the lake, with tastings, tours, restaurants and live entertainment. You even drive thru a vineyard on your way to the house off the main road.

If a relaxing lake experience, in a lovely setting, near a quaint Western New York village is your objective, then this home will make for a great HomeAway!

A beautiful site!!

  • 5 of 5

Robyn’s place on Lake Seneca was a real delight!! We spent four glorious days alongside the lake and touring the vineyards. It is within easy driving distance of vineyards and grocery (in Watkins Glen) as well as local attractions. The weather was perfect and we enjoyed campfires at the house on several cool evenings. Robyn has thoughtfully furnished the house with virtually all the necessities for cooking and preparing meals for the eight of us. The house itself is thoughtfully laid out and quite practical. We did not use the bunkhouse but it was well appointed and comfortable. The setting of the house in the trees alongside the lake is remarkable in itself, but descending through the vineyards to reach the house adds a lovely touch. We definitely plan on staying at Robyn’s again!! Thanks Robyn!!
