A quiet, relaxing vacation in the Finger Lakes

  • 5 of 5

Longview was great for our vacation. House is cozy and comfortable and we really enjoyed the quick walk down to the dock for swims, camp fires and evenings spent relaxing by the water. The grill and kitchen were nice for cooking meals, including with vegetables from the farm stand up the road. Longview is also a perfect launching point for exploring the beautiful Finger Lakes region. plenty of hikes and vineyards are within driving distance. Definitely recommend this spot if you're looking for a quiet, clean and comfortable place to relax. The owners are great, and we also had a chance to meet the neighbors, who are very nice.

Good location in Finger Lake Region

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Longview cottage at the end of June. The cottage was very nice. The view of the lake is very nice but it is a walk from the cottage to the lake as it sits back from the road and the Lake is across the road and down stairs.

Quiet roads are all around and it is very nice to be able to walk and enjoy the area.

If you enjoy hiking, it is a nice ride to either Watkins Glen or Taughhannock Falls.

We enjoyed Ice Cream at Cayuga Creamery. Ithaca is very close as well.

Brad and Marla are very nice hosts and will be glad to assist as needed.

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

Right from the start we all felt at home. Marla,Brad,Lilly, and Mason treated us like family. The cottage was small but very comfortable and there was plenty of beach front to enjoy. The location is breath taking! One of the very few spots on the lake where you can see a sunrise and a sunset. We would definitely return to Longview again. The place was great and the people even better! Denny and Ruth D.

Lakeside Fun and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

This is our favorite place to stay for several reasons but mostly because of the friendly and helpful owners. The cabin is so cute! It is clean and well maintained. It is very peaceful, and there are many memories to be made here.
