The Perfect Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful cottage! It is a perfect Lake Cottage in the Woods. It's just like the one you remember from when you were a kid! It has absolutely everything you will need. The kitchen is well equipped, and linens, towels, etc. are included. The owner is very helpful and responsive. Canandaigua and the surrounding area are always a wonderful treat, but particularly in the fall. The colors and weather were just perfect. Wi-Fi and internet are awesome! I would only caution that there are quite a few steps both from the garage level to the cottage, and then to the beach. I would most certainly recommend this to anyone!!

Lovely, Tranquil Stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a great spot on the lake! Our family of four had a very relaxing week. The kitchen had everything we needed and it was a HUGE help to have linens provided. We liked the open floor plan of the house. The dock and beach were perfect for hanging out and swimming, which is where you found us most of the week. My husband and I worked from the back deck, thanks to the wifi.

Many thanks for a great stay!

Our recent stays

I thoroughly concur with the review of "Sue" in 2010. We have stayed at the cottage now for several years, and have always found it in tip-top shape. The views from the deck are magnificent; the deck is great for entertaining, and also for just kicking back! The addition of the half-bath this year was a welcome surprise. The waterfront is also wonderful for activity--and sunning/reading!

Our 2012 Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was like the photos showed it and was well clean and maintained. The cottage is well laid out with three good size bedrooms, nice kitchen with all your needs, large great room with every thing you need including the cable TV, VCR. It has a great deck that looks out over the lake (great view). The dock was very good, beach frontage was also good, only used the paddle boat (grand kids loved it) but the other two boats were there. I would highly recommed this cottage and I have. P.S. also has a garage.

The listing description was accurate and also the photos

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay immensely, particularly the view from the beautiful deck, and the waterfront. The property was clean and well maintained The bedrooms were minimal--but not the point of staying there. The owner was very helpful to us when some problems developed. I would like to stay there again, but should point out that, as a house in the woods, there are steps from the road level down to the house, and also from the house down to the water.

Wooded Delight!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a true delight! It's located on a deep oak shaded lot and off a quiet private road. The cottage and deck are very conveniently organized and comfortably furnished. The neighbors are quiet and friendly. The beach is one of the best in the area with plenty of room for lounging, swimming and boat storage. The boathouse is a rare feature on Canandaigua Lake and it makes changing and beach/boating equipment storage very handy. The outer end of the dock has a nice seating area handy for sunset wine tasting and for fishing. We could moor our motor boat on the off-shore mooring buoy or just use the classic 14' Alumacraft rowboat or the fun paddleboat. There is electric cottage heat if needed (not likely in the warm seasons) and natural cool air flow coming down off the high ground behind the cottage. If it sounds like a nice place, it truly is.
