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.

Cute cottage on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage. It was perfect. It was better than I expected. I have to agee with other reviews that the pictures don't do it justice. There was plenty of space for all of us (9 total). We wished the weather would have been nicer to enjoy the outside. We did bundle up one morning to drink coffee on the porch. The view of the lake is beautiful, we didn't want to leave. Our group wants to return next year! Thank you Jackie.

Stunning house, gorgeous views, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is just beautiful! Such an amazing way to spend our Labor Day weekend! The tiered decks were great for entertaining and watching the sunset. The kids loved jumping off of the dock and finding little seashells on shore. Is parents just enjoyed the overall relaxing atmosphere and the comfort of the home. It is a home we hope to vacation at annually! The owner was wonderful to work with and we appreciate her sharing her home with us! The Boyers

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!!!

  • 5 of 5

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.
