About Richard

I grew up in nearby Geneva and have spent part of every summer at the cottage since I was a child. My wife and I have degrees from Alfred University and SUNY Geneseo. Our family has many warm and special memories from times spent at the cottage.

Richard purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Richard chose Seneca Lake

This property has been in my family since the 1930s. This area on the east shore of Seneca Lake once was a large park with a dance pavilion and picnic areas known as Pastime Park. It was divided and sold to individuals in the 1930's, and remains a secluded, private area just 5 miles from Geneva.

What makes this cottage unique

Being on the east shore of the lake, the sun filters through the trees in the morning, and shade lingers on parts of the lawn during the day. Refreshing breezes may blow across the water until late afternoon. Typically, there are beautiful, quiet sunsets in the evening.

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

The property is clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the use of the kayaks, canoe, loungers and dock the sunsets were beauriful. We appreciated the milk, orange juice and eggs and a local gift. Geneva is close enough for groceries, etc. There are plenty of vineyards and breweries nearby and tastings are only $5! Watkins Glen State Park was about 45 minutes away and worth the visit! There is so much to do in this area and I can't wait for a return visit!

Wonderful Cottage on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is so cute. My sisters and I enjoyed sitting on the shaded deck. Or grabbing some chairs and getting some sun on the dock. The cottage has everything you need and is so peaceful. The beds are comfy especially the queen bed. I loved that mattress! Slept so good. Plenty to do in the area. We'll be back!

We enjoyed our stay completely. This is a cozy lakeside cottage with all the amentities. It is in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country and we took full advantage of it. It is a short drive to Watkins Glen State Park which is a magical hike through waterfalls, water pools and ancient rock formations. I highly recommend it.

Bright cheerful cottage by the lake

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 3 days in September and were pleasantly surprised. The cottage was ideal, very private, good location, gorgeous views. It was very comfortable and the view of the lake was superb. Owners were very pleasant and most accomodating. We enjoyed extensive winery visits, local stores and restaurants. This location is very peaceful, yet there is plenty to do without going anywhere! We will definitely

Recommend this to friends!

Bright, airy and private

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this cottage and it suits us perfectly. It is lovely, exactly as pictured and is quite secluded, not cheek by jowl with other cottages. We enjoyed the lake and the peace and quiet. We were quite lazy, going for long walks, but mostly relaxing. A few years ago we took a cruise on the Seneca-Cayuga canal with Canalside Experiences, which I highly recommend. Also liked Dano's Heuriger and the Crow's Nest restaurants.
