                                                            We stayed at this property for a weekend to celebrate my brother's 60th birthday. It was perfect for us -- maybe even a little big! There were 4 couples and 2 singles for a total of 10 adults. We took up all the bedrooms and the loft with twin beds. But we could have brought a bunch of teens too! The basement has 3 futons that would be comfortable for 1 person each. Upstairs, there are two fold out sofas and 1 additional sofa and I believe a loveseat. So much space to spread out! The basement area has a concrete floor - so might not be the most luxurious sleeping quarters - but my teens would be fine with it. The property was very clean and well maintained. There was a little snow on Saturday night, and someone arrived to salt the drive before our 10am checkout. It was too cold for water activities, but the water view from the multiple decks is breathtaking. There are many spots to watch the sun rise. The dock appears to be new and would be much fun for swimming and boating over the summer. The hot tub was large and clean, and on a deck overlooking the water. It was a great place to spend a chilly morning. Kitchen was nice and usable. We only made breakfast as we ate out for other meals. The kitchen table was large and worked well for our group. We were able to walk to the Billsboro winery, but beware - they need reservations for groups of 10 or more. So we went in shifts. A 2.3 mile walk along the railroad tracks that skirt the lake took us to the Spring Hill winery and Gael brewery. What a treat to have some nice wine or beer at the end of a walk. We had a few others in our party drive up to meet us, so our walk was one way. The people at the tastings were very hospitable and we had a lot of fun. Tastings were generally only $5 per person for 5 - 7 wines. The town of Geneva is a short drive (maybe 10 minutes?) and it's wonderful. We were able to eat very well there. I'd recommend cebo as well as beef and brew, unconditionally. Both surprisingly delicious. This area seems to pay much attention to local sourcing, both for food as well as drink. Everything felt special. No chains. Our GPS took each of us to the wrong location. It's not hard to find (road is right off route 14) but google maps might be a little screwed up. If you make a wrong turn it's hard to turn around, so confirm that address that's in the welcome packet. Overall, a wonderful property and great way to spend a weekend with family. I wish we had one more day!

                                                            The property overlooks a beautiful lake. The house is very spacious and the layout of the home is great. There's plenty of space for activities. The access to Netflix as well as the lake were great perks. My only regret is not staying longer!

                                                            We were able to enjoy Thanksgiving with my mom. As out-of-towners this was a fantastic house to rent, not only to be with family but to use the most fabulous kitchen for Thanksgiving dinner. The house was phenomenal clean and beautiful. Fully equipped with all necessities even a the electrical fireplace in the master bedroom was such a nice touch especially during the fall. The owner, Melissa was so easy to work with. Courteous, professional and very helpful! We will definitely be staying there again!
