3 Bedroom 2 Bath Lake Front
Elaine and Jason Woodlee
Why Elaine and Jason Woodlee chose Hancock
We were renting a small cottage in the area while visiting our daughter in French Woods. We came upon this house while taking a walk. The rest is history :-)
What makes this House unique
Modern and spacious house in a quiet community right on a beautiful lake. The house has all the comforts of home as it is built for year around living. It truly takes you "away from it all". We found no better place to run away to and recharge.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
We had a wonderful time. Owner responded to all emails and texts immediately. The house was spotless and the lake was beautiful. Will definitely come back.
Overall we had an excellent stay at Silver Lake. The mountain view, lake, and decks were amazing. Numerous chairs, kayaks, fishing poles, etc kept us entertained. Cottage could use an interior paint job and thorough cleaning (closets - drawers - etc), but I will admit I'm picky. :-) Kitchenware could be better -- but honestly to be expected at a rental property. Beds were very comfortable, linens were nice. Had a great stay, would recommend and would love to stay again!
Our Silver Lake visit the week of July 21 2018
This was our first visit to this area of NY. We enjoyed our week on Silver Lake. This home came fully stocked so no need to bring along the towels, sheets, kitchen or laundry products. There are a couple of grocery stores that are approximately a 10 minute drive away. They are a bit more expensive so you may want to bring groceries from home or plan to drive to the Walmart near Binghamton. The home is right on the lake so we enjoyed fishing from the dock and from the kayak. There is a "resident" snapping turtle who would swim by daily and check us out. Although we didn't swim, the neighbors report he swims away when you go in the water. We also enjoyed the deer, eagles, wild turkeys and other wildlife that we spotted along the lake and during our travels. This home is very comfortable and a wonderful place to enjoy a relaxing time away. We didn't get to enjoy the propane fueled fire pit since we had a rainy week but it was awesome to just sit on the deck and watch the clouds go by and enjoy the views of the lake. We were happy to have found this rental and would recommend it! As a side note, we have Verizon cell phone service and found our service was intermittent around this entire area. So if you rely on your phone as a GPS, you may want to print out directions just in case you run into a similar situation. Also, make sure to check out the Hancock reservoir nearby-absolutely beautiful!
Thanks so much for the kind words. It was our pleasure to host you.
just what we were looking for...
Relaxing, comfortable time with friends in a lovely home with a fabulous deck and lake.
End of summer fireworks were the frosting on the cake. Thank you for your hospitality.
Thanks so much for the kind words. Come see us again!
Great Lake and Amazing View
My wife children and I had an amazing time at the lake house. The house was spotless and has every amenity that you could ever need when renting a house. The owners were very accommodating and were willing to do anything to make our stay pleasant and enjoyable. The dock was by far the best dock on the entire lake, with wonderful views and multiple levels for cooking/eating and docking the canoes and paddle boats.
There were also many extra's that you never find when renting a waterfront property such as multiple canoes and small rafts that you can use free of charge while you are there, as well as life preservers, and multiple flotation devices such as noodles and blow up rafts/inner-tubes.
I would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting to get away and simply relax on the lake. The community was very quiet and everyone kept to themselves allowing my family to simply enjoy the water and do nothing but relax. There are also two towns within 5-10 minutes driving distance that has everything you could possibly need, restaurants/grocery store and liquor store as well as a pizza delivery place that will come right to your doorstep.
We will definitely be renting from Elaine again. Thank you for a wonderful vacation.
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Look forward to hosting you again.
Perfect lakefront location
I have to begin by stating that Elaine was very responsive and accommodating throughout the booking process and our actual stay. Her home is inviting with plenty of natural light and lake views from just about every window of the house. The expansive deck/dock is built directly from the home to the water. There is plenty of comfortable, well-maintained outdoor furniture, a large gas grill, and a gas fire pit. My 3 daughters ages 7, 12, and 13 found the kids kayaks were a fabulous plus!! My husband and I were able to join them on the lake in the canoe and the adult kayak each day. Life jackets and paddles are clean and stored neatly in the shed. There are other homes on the lake, only about half of which were occupied during our stay. I should note that the people we came in brief contact with were friendly, waving and exchanging pleasantries. That being said, the location still feels quiet and secluded. We brought our floats from home (although there were plenty inflated in the shed) and spent lots of time swimming and relaxing in the water. We also had our fishing rods with us, and caught an array of decent sized sunfish, a few bass and the occasional small trout. The kitchen is well stocked and the bathrooms clean. Bed linens and bath towels are provided as well. Groceries are just 15 minutes away in Hancock Village. I cannot wait to book Elaine and Jason's home again for a longer stay next summer!!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We would be happy to host you again in the future. BTW since you stayed, we added another adult kayak so now your whole family can go kayaking :-) Check us out in the fall. it's quite beautiful when the leaves start to change.
