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 Geneva

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.

Amazing little cottage....peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled here with 2 couples. The cottage is located in a great location on Seneca Lake. We had so much to do. But all I wanted to do is go back to the house and relax on the dock and deck. We enjoyed kayaking. We cooked most of our meals at the house. It has everything you need. We have rented a lot of rentals but this had the most I have ever seen. They give you breakfast food, and paper products. So convenient. The negative is only having one bathroom but we made it work. The wifi was wonderful! Thank you for sharing your house with us.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want to leave this review. I'd like to keep this wonderful place all for myself. The cottage is cute and cozy. It is right on beautiful Seneca Lake. Sitting just above the lake. You take some stone steps down to the well kept dock and boat house. We like to sit on the dock and watch the activity on the lake while catching some sun. Geneva is 10 minutes away. Cottage owners Sue and Richard are very hospitable stocking fridge with eggs, orange juice, English Muffins and a few other goodies to make us feel extra welcome. This was our second visit. We'll be back again!

This was our second time staying here. Such a cute house, AMAZING lake views, and thoughtful homeowners (they stocked the fridge with essentials as well as leaving some local treats for us to enjoy). We will definitely be back again.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome. It was so cute and had everything we needed. It was also very clean. The English muffins, eggs, milk & orange justice were very much appreciated. There were also some condiments and coffee that the owners left for us to use. The view is amazing. It was cold when we were there, but would be amazing to sit out on the balcony and dock in warmer weather. The only thing I would change is that the upstairs beds were a little uncomfortable. But the rest of the amenities made up for it. Would stay again.thank you for opening your home up to visitors!

We had a great stay at the cottage. It was nifty, neat and clean.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is well equipped. Beds were very comfortable. Plenty of towels. Kitchen had everything we needed and our hosts left us milk, eggs, English muffins and oj! Would absolutely recommend. It was a little too cold for us to get out on the lake but in warmer weather you could really enjoy the private lake front.
