Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4 adults or 3 adults and 2 children

*** RUNNING SPECIAL FOR ALL AVAILABLE NIGHTS IN SEPTEMBER ***

Our cozy cottage is right in the heart of wine country and overlooks Seneca Lake from the east side, so the sunsets are amazing and filled with spectacular colors. Set among summer cottages and homes in a rustic/country-style neighborhood, our property has 45 feet of lake frontage with a dock. Depending on the weather and day of the week, the atmosphere on this uncongested lake ranges from calm and peaceful to joyful and fun.

Our newly renovated cottage features a luxurious bathroom with a whirlpool tub, an open floor plan between the kitchen and living room, and a deck with a comfortable patio set and gas grill. There are two sliding glass doors that lead from the living room to the deck, which allow for nice lake views through the surrounding trees. Four adults or three adults and two children can sleep comfortably in this one bedroom cottage with a queen-size bed, a twin-size bed, and a full-size pullout couch.

The lakefront has a shaded area with a bonfire ring and picnic table, as well as a sunny dock. You can borrow the owner's 2 kayaks, peddle boat, and row boat, and use camp chairs that are kept in the boat shed. There's something for everyone, including swimming, boating, kayaking, long walks along a dirt road through vineyards, fishing, and romantic evenings watching the sunset and drinking local wine.

- luxurious bathroom with whirlpool tub

- fully stocked kitchen with microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, cookware, and utensils

- access to the lake frontage from the yard is by way of a sturdy staircase or by a short road that goes around the neighborhood (about 1/4 mile to our frontage). The staircase has about 75 steps. The run for the steps is 11 inches, which is nice, and there are three decks with benches, in case anyone needs to rest or wants to see the view. It's also very handy to be able to drive down if you're carrying coolers, towels, etc., or are taking some small kids down all at once. The road is for limited use, especially on busy weekends, but it is there when you need it.

At the Glen Harbor Marina, take a ride on Captain Bill's Sightseeing Boat, the Seneca Legacy Dinnercruise Boat, or the Malibar/True Love Sailboat. Our cottage is also surrounded by the Finger Lakes National Forest, with hiking trails. You-pick fruit orchards and honor-system fruit and vegetable stands are available frequently during the summer and fall. Skyland Farm, a fine-craft gallery with items from 500+ artists and a feeding farm, is a must-see. The cuisine in the area is delicious with dining atmospheres ranging from casual to elegant. Many of the restaurants offer local, farm-fresh foods. Two miles across the lake, the Rainbow Cove Restaurant has slips for boats.

- Finger Lakes Wine Festival, July

Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We took a short, last minute getaway and couldn't be happier! Mary was very accommodating with our late check in time. The cottage is charming and comfortable. We had just as much fun relaxing on the deck and dock as we did jumping from winery to winery (all which are very close to the cottage). The views are amazing and it is a perfect place to escape. We already started discussing another trip in June and hopefully will be able to enjoy a summer weekend at Seneca Lake!

Cute Cottage, Great Views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from 6/25/17 through 7/2/17. The cottage is adorable and very comfortable. The lake view is wonderful. We enjoyed sitting on the dock in the evening to enjoy the sunset. The stairs to the dock are pretty steep, so just be careful. The location is great. It's close to downtown Watkins Glen and many wineries. I counted at least 24 between Watkins Glen and the house! If you are there on a Friday night this summer, I recommend Wagner Winery/Brewery. They have live music on the deck. It's just around the corner from the house. The road to the house is tricky, so it is probably best to try it during daylight hours first. Just take your time and you'll be fine.

The house itself is cute and had everything we needed. The bed was firm for me, but that's just a personal preference. Being Southerners, we appreciated the space heaters to take the chill off. We never had to start the propane stove. The WiFi was spotty, but we never tried to call to number for service. Too many other fun things to do anyway. I did notice that there aren't any smoke detectors. That may not be a requirement in NY, but I feel more comfortable when they are in place and working. I would definitely recommend the cottage if you are looking for a place in this area.

Quiet and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here June 22nd-June 25. 3 adults and 2 dogs. It was just enough space for 3 adults. You could fit more with younger children. The place was clean and had everything you needed to be comfortable. We didn't watch tv or use internet as there was plenty to see an due in 4 days. This particular week was great as there wasn't anyone around just yet for vacations. If you have dogs the fenced in yard is wonderful! The steps down to the water weren't bad at all and you can rest if you need to on the way back up. The sunsets were beautiful and being right there at the water is awesome. So peaceful. We used the kayaks and paddleboats and did some fishing but didn't get a chance to use fire pit but other renters did. It is a slow drive on gravel to house from the main road, so please buy all of your groceries before you make it to the house. Great tip by Mary:) There are quite a few wineries along the stretch getting to the house and some breweries too. So if you love wine this is the place to be. We did a lot of hiking while we were there but just note no dogs allowed on the gorge hikes but plenty of other places to go. Had a great time and we will try and get back next year! Mary is very responsive and glad we rented from her.

What a great property!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! The property owner, Mary, was great! The views and proximity to the lake can't be beat. The peddle boats and kayaks were a nice addition to our stay. We would definitely recommend this property!
