Seneca Lake mini reunion weekend

  • 5 of 5

Five Maryvale High School friends (and spouses) came from Atlanta, GA, Williamsport, PA and Cheektowaga, NY for a mini reunion of sorts. We had a great time visiting some of the wineries, enjoyed one of the best meals ever at Port Cafe, and most of all, enjoyed hanging around the fire pit for many,many fun hours. A great location, and the house was perfect! Hope to do this again some time!

Beautiful place by the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We were a extended family of 11 and had an amazing time here . The kids loved it .

The house was well equipped for our stay for the Memorial Day weekend.

Watkins Glen state park is just 5 minutes away and is a must visit .

We love this home

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this house. The first year we had 9, and this year 10, so the house can definitely fit a big group, though keep in mind not all rooms are private. We really enjoy the firepit and view from the porch. Simply cozy and a house that we make a lot of memories at. Great location. Little hiccup when we first arrived but I called and was able to get things figured out right away.

Needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

The house was supposed to be cleaned, yet there were cobwebs in the tops of all the lamps when we went to turn them on. Wanted to give a baby a bath and discovered disgusting black mold under the tub mat! The towels leave a lot to be desired....The sectional sofa described is circa 1980...the pieces don't attach so seating is really limited since it comes apart when you try to sit on it. The TV's are ancient and the picture is terrible. The house smelled musty when opened.

The location is great..very convenient to Watkins Glen. The house has good bones and lots of potential...spending a little money to upgrade towels, , TV's etc. would be a wise investment.

Owner's Response: Patty, We appreciate the feed back from your review. We have always had excellent feedback on this particular property and its cleanliness. I am truly sorry your experience did not reflect the same. In speaking with the cleaners the bath mat must have been over looked and we apologize. The home is a wood and stone rustic home set next to a gorge overlooking Seneca Lake with lush landscaping and while it is thoroughly cleaned between guest we will be more diligent in trying to keep spider webs to a minimum. The advise to update certain furnishings is appreciated and will be taken under advisement. I do hope you enjoyed your visit and all the area had to offer.

This was a clean, homey, relaxing cabin overlooking beautiful Seneca Lake

  • 4 of 5

This was a clean, homey, relaxing cabin overlooking beautiful Seneca Lake. Access to town and Marina Was excellent and the proximity to the local Tiki bar made it a frequent stop. We made good use of the fire pit and was lovely to take in the views from nearly all rooms from sunrise to sun set. The wine tril is right out the back door and there is so much to do in the area. Julia Symes the property manager was helpful and the owners accommodated us in every way they could. Parking a bit of a chalk anger at times but with a little shuffling worked out fine

Love this house!

  • 4 of 5

This house has so much character! Very charming. Outside landscaping needs a lot of work. Stone sidewalks need some maintenance and the driveway is horrible. Lots of TV's but NO cable! 2 bedrooms ---4 single beds and one double bed, but no upstairs bathroom.,
