Why Nate and Tara Potter chose Owego
This home is perfectly situated to enjoy wildlife, as well as swimming, fishing, hiking, shopping, and many more activities.
What makes this Cottage unique
When we first saw the natural beauty of the surrounding area, it was love at first sight! It has been said, we have the nicest view of Owego Creek, and we would have to agree. The sounds of nature, and the creek, have a nice calming effect. You will enjoy it as much as we do!

Excellent home and location!
We really enjoyed our stay at this home. The property is beautiful and private, and the house is very well maintained. Plus there is a lot to do in the area. The owners are great to work with, highly recommend staying here!
Love this cottage!
We have stayed many places in different locations - this cottage is now our favorite. The setting is private and wonderful and you will be serenaded by a chorus of birds while you enjoy the sound of the stream right out the back door. We took one day of our stay and spent it at the cottage. It was our best day.
Tara was so very helpful with responding to questions and making recommendations.
Owego is charming and we would highly recommend a little cafe called Sugar Maple Cafe. Food was great, prices were more than reasonable and the owners are charming. Be sure you visit there.
We thank Tara and Nate for a wonderful visit.
Relax and Decompress
This is the perfect place to relax, listen to the birds and the bubbling brook, and decompress. The cabin is well appointed with EVERYTHING that you could possible need. Bring your provisions and prepare meals in the gourmet kitchen. The cabin is nestled in beautiful Owego. Enjoy the historic downtown, go to Carol's Coffee and Art Bar and have a latte and homemade biscotti, walk along Front Street and see the beautiful homes. For breakfast, try Sugar Maple Cafe with its trained chef preparing meals. Farmhouse Brewery is a great stop for excellent craft beer. For more adventure, travel to the Finger Lakes for wine tastings and breweries. There is truly something for everyone.
Another magical stay!
This was our second visit to the Potters’ cottage, and we had another magical stay. The weather was super cold (unusual for November) but we were toasty and warm from the heating stove in the living room and the amazing heater in the bedroom. The driveway was plowed for us, and the snow was cleared for an easy walk up to the cottage. It was immaculate like our last visit and so inviting! We love everything about this place! We cooked our Thanksgiving turkey in the fully equipped kitchen, and it was fabulous. We spent our mornings enjoying the birds at the feeders just beyond the living room window. We thank you again, Nate and Tara, for a relaxing place we can stay and visit our family nearby. You are wonderful to communicate with and you take great care of your guests. We will definitely return!
Beautiful and very cozy
Me and my husband enjoyed every single moment of our staying . The view from the kitchen window is absolutely beautiful. The cottage is spotless and fully organized. Highly recommending for a perfect getaway.
Serenity and Beauty Abounds
This cabin sits on the Owego Creek. It is a serene setting. It is relaxing to watch the creek and the wildlife in the surrounding field. The cabin is well equipped. The kitchen has everything that a foodie cook would need or want. If you do not feel like cooking, visit Owego for restaurants. The Sugar Maple Cafe is a delight. Always a wonderful experience visiting the Finger Lakes Wine Country. We stay here twice a year to visit family. An added bonus is the cabin is pet friendly. We are thankful for this cozy cabin. Tara and Nate are responsive and lovely people.
Our home is located on Owego Creek, yearly stocked with a variety of trout. Owego was named coolest small town in 2009. Close proximity to Cornell University and Ithaca College. Many different wineries and breweries to choose from locally.
