Ladies' Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The place is adorable! It is clean, neat, and very comfortable. Everything we needed was provided; they even met us with umbrellas as it was raining when we checked in! It was a cool day when we arrived, but the cottage was nice and cozy. Eventually it cleared up, so we were able to enjoy the beautiful lake and outstanding view and even caught a few rays the last two days sitting out on the pier chairs. We are thinking about doing this again next year!

As advertized

We took a last minute trip, we choose Elmwood and could not have been happier. House was super clean, property on lake was fantastic. Sunsets were spectacular. Owners were very easy to deal with. Already making plans on return trip.

Best family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location! This is a gem of a cottage in a great location. No stairs from the road to cottage or from cottage to the lake. The house was very clean with a great variety of bedrooms. This was our first visit to the lake and it was so relaxing to sit on the screened in porch and see the water or fall asleep at night hearing the soft waves lap at the shore. Our grandkids ranged from 7-17 and they played outdoors all day. They were either swimming, kayaking, fishing or using the paddle boat. There is a sizable area of shallow water to walk into the lake and it is very clear. The fishing is at its best right off the docks. Quite a few fish were caught right there. We did bring our own small pontoon boat and were very thankful for the use of the boat hoist. Warren was very helpful in showing us how to use it. Kathy and Warren were great hosts and have a property to be very proud of. The two picnic tables were a plus and we ate most meals outside or on the porch. We did not take advantage of the othere things to do in the area because we were all very content to be at the cottage or on the lake. Thanks for a great vacation!

Another wonderful week on Keuka

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this lovely cottage. We enjoyed our time here just as much this year. Very comfortable and clean bedrooms. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything one needs insofar as dishes, pots, pans etc. Warren and Kathy are so accommodating and helpful but also unobtrusive. We hope to return again next year!

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

First off our hosts Warren and Kathy were wounderful! Very accommodating and made us feel at home from the first minute.

The cottage was well equipped with linens, towels, cooking equipment, games, and even a sufficient supply of firewood. The beds were comfortable and the laundry facilities were good.

This is an older cottage (1895 vintage) that is decorated nicely and it has a lot of character .... Squeaky floors etc ... so if your looking for a new place w/ finished walls etc this is not the place for you. However is your looking for a place w character lots of land and a great beach to wade in the water I do highly recommend it!

Thank you Warren and Kathy for sharing your home with us.

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for allowing our family the use of your cottage. It was the perfect spot! We had are children and grandchildren with us and they enjoyed every minute. The screened in porch was a real pleasure!. The grandkids (ages, 1 & 3) had a blast fishing and wading in the lake. The house has plenty of room and was well stocked. Immaculate place! Hopefully, we will be able to rent your cottage next year
