Guestbook comments from the owner

Summerwind provided the comforts of home with the beauty and serenetiy of Seneca Lake at the doorstep. This finely appointed, immaculate home is masterfully designed to be the consumate respite or casual arena for family and friendly gatherings and celebrations. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment and hope to return for years to come. Summerwind is pure perfection.

amazing, so many amenties

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is beautiful. Everything we needed was there. Fully stocked kitchen. We loved playing with the water "toys" (paddleboards, kayaks, paddleboat and plenty of lifejackets for young kids). Wine frig and industrial ice maker a huge extra. Has an incredible sound system with outside speakers and volume control. Everyday enjoyed relaxing in the Adirondack chairs on the dock, playing in water and fishing. The evenings, we were on the small "beach" roasting marshmallows by the fire pit. So many amenities that make this property stand out. Great location for any shopping needs and restaurants. Local marina with boat rentals only a few miles away.

Our stay was absolutely wonderful. The house is gorgeous and in the perfect spot on Seneca. The beds were so comfortable and there was more than enough living space for the 12 of us who stayed at the house. We actually did not want to leave for our wine tour because the lake, dock and house are amazing. We will definitely rent again!

Couldn't ask for more!!!

We have to say that the pictures do not do justice to this cottage. It is a wonderful, wonderful place to stay! The cottage is equipped with everything you could possibly need or want and it is so clean! The view is amazing. We stayed here as an alternative to a hotel for our daughter's graduation from HWS - what a great place to celebrate with our family! Thank you Jackie. You and your home exceeded our expectations!!!

Perfect house for a Finger Lakes retreat

  • 5 of 5

I booked the house for my wife's 30th birthday and our first journey to the Finger Lake region and it did not disappoint at all!!! The process to book the house was very easy and the owners made every effort to accommodate any requests that we may have made prior to our arrival. Upon arrival we noticed that the pictures do not do this place justice, it far exceeded our expectations and we would love to reserve this house the next time we come back. Thank you to the owners for making our stay memorable.

Beautiful Sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed some of the best sunsets we've ever seen, and were lucky enough to be at this lovely home during the Perseids meteor shower. The view from the dock is amazing, day and night. The options for sun and shade outdoor living are numerous. We used the grill, all of the decks, and our grandson loved the little beach. Herons abound and are a delight to watch. There was not a lot of motorized lake activity making it more relaxing outside. There was plenty room for our group of 7, and we loved the setup in the house. Each night we fell asleep to the sound of the lake lapping the shore. We visited quite a few wineries and even went to Niagara Falls one day. Jackie answered all of our questions right away and it was so easy to communicate with her. We would definitely recommend this home to our friends and family!

This cottage has all the comforts of home with out all the hassles! Actually it probably has more comforts than most. The cottage looks exactly as described, no surprises. The back porch is extremely comfortable for morning coffee and watching the sunset. We enjoyed the use of the kayaks and outdoor grill. The cottage is very close to great wineries and breweries. We also ventures out early one morning to hike the falls in Watkins Glen which should not be missed. We really hope to return again!
