My boyfriend's family and I (9 adults and a toddler) stayed at the Hoovers' cabin for one night and were pretty comfortable there. The cabin was really warm and clean when we arrived, and was fully furnished and equipped with kitchen supplies and everything you would need. Mary received us with some home-made bread and jam as gifts for our stay, and were delicious and perfect for breakfast. They also left a box of toys and a booster seat for our 2 year old niece. The backyard and the porch were beautiful in the morning. There is a volleyball net in the back, a fire pit (they provide firewood per request) and chairs and tables. We really wished we could stay longer to enjoy the cabin and go around the area on tours.
The only problem was the water. It was a little smelly, so we only used it to wash dishes and hands. We brought our own bottled water for cooking and drinking. It wasn't a problem, but just be aware that you need to bring drinking water. there are some stores 15min from the cabin, so you can what you need from there.
I recommend this cabin to any party who needs a nice place to stay in the area. This was the best deal we found for the number of people we were, and we were happy with it.
This was a great place to get away. The cabin is very nice and does have everything you would need. I would definitely stay there again when in the area. Mary is very kind and was a pleasure to meet.
THIS PLACE IS A GREAT GET AWAY FROM ALL PRIVATE SETTING ALOT OF SPACE INSIDE AND OUT LOVED THE DOUBLE SHOWERS BEUTIFUL SUNSET THE CABIN IS FURNISHED WITH EVERTHING ALL YOU NEED TO BRING IS YOUR FOOD AND PERSONAL ITEMS WE WILL BE COMING BACK NEXT YEAR THE HOOVERS ARE ARE GREAT PEOPLE TO RENT FROM CABIN WAS CLEAN AND YARD WAS MAINTANED ALSO SITTING ON THE FRONCH PORCH WITH THE MORNING COFFEE IS AWSOME
This is a well maintained property in a rural area. There is a house on a lot adjacent to the cabin. The properties are separated by pines, and we did not see the neighbors. Otherwise the property is surrounded by planted fields and is relatively private. There is a nice view of a beautiful farm. The yard around the cabin is large enough for children to run around.
We did not spend much time at the cabin, but it was a nice base for for 3 adults and 13 young men who were in the area to spend time at the lake. Only one bathroom area (toilet and two shower stalls) was not a big problem. The home is more like a cabin; the amenities and furnishings are basic - no air conditioning and the walls in the bunk room were plywood. Everything was clean. There is a small deli/market about 1 mile from the cabin for basic supplies. The cabin is close to Keuka Lake, maybe 10 or 15 minutes from Penn Yan and about 1/2 hour from Branchport.
The owners are very attentive, very friendly and close by if needed. They had taken time to prepare and groom the property for our arrival. The jam and bread they provided were great. Only caution is the water, which has a lot of sulfer. You will want to bring bottled water.
We rented this property for a fall wine tour weekend. My husband and another couple (our best friends) stayed Saturday to Monday. The property is very central to a number of wineries in the area. The property owner, Mary was very hospitable with a fresh loaf of homemade bread and a jar of grape jam waiting for us upon arrival. The description of amentities was accurate, with a well supplied kitchen - we cooked breakfast and dinner both nights in the kitchen. We had wonderful weather, and enjoyed the fire pit in the back yard both nights. Thanks Mary and Leon for a wonderful weekend getaway!
The cabin was just as advertised - peaceful, rural, and rustic. The homemade bread and jam were delicious. We were comfortable and felt right at home. The cabin is immaculately clean and there were plenty of utensils and dishes for cooking. One night, we laid out in the back yard and saw the stars and the Milky Way while my daughter chased fireflies. It's been years since we saw so many stars! Even though it was mid-summer and there is no AC, we slept comfortably at night with no problems. For the most part, it was a totally wonderful place to stay. Our only complaint was the water. It was clean and plentiful, but it smelled like sulfur and tasted like sulfur. We drink tap water at home and have drunk well water before, but this was beyond our capacity to tolerate. We ended up having to buy bottled water (something we don't usually do!). It's likely that the water is simply what it is - that the family who owns this cabin has no control over it. But it did dampen our stay a bit.
