About Owner/Manager

We searched for just the right place on the lake for over two years and luck led us straight to this cozy place which had been lovingly cared for and decorated by its previous owners. But foreseeing that we wouldn't be able to spend as much time there as we wished, we made the decision to let others enjoy it as much as we have. But having the cottage relatively close to our home/work does force us to get away every now and then.

I spent every summer either on the lake or at Letchworth Park as I was growing up, and there was never any doubt I would come to settle in Wyoming County, close to the areas I have always loved. Now besides living full-time in Wyoming County nestled in the hills, I also now have my very own piece of the lake!

Owner/Manager purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Owner/Manager chose New York

While not 'lakefront' (on the lake side of the street) we have a nice open view of the lake from the front deck across an expanse of lawn while still having lake access, although just a bit down the street, an easy walk. Not being 'lakefront' allowed us to find a larger lot and cottage as we live in a very secluded spot and prefer not to be overly crowded.

What makes this cottage unique

large lot (double) with 2 driveways, not typically found on the lake. Deck fully sheltered from wind and rain with awning / drop-down curtains.

Awesome cottage to stay while visiting family.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time our family has stayed here while visiting other family! The cottage is spacious and well supplied with everything you need. Cathy and Tom are very attentive if anything is needed. The cottage is in a lovely location, nicely decorated and very comfortable. We will always stay here when returning to the Perry area!!!!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here during archery season cause it was located near my hunting grounds. The place is nicer than the pictures in the description. So nice I felt bad staying here while my wife and kids were at home. Very clean and plenty of room. I exchanged email with Cathleen and she seemed very hospitable. I look forward to returning.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words, I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Maybe we'll see you in the summer with your wife and kids in summer! Or consider that while I only rent for full weeks July through August, you can always stay a long weekend outside those months.

Very nice place!!!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place. We really enjoyed our stay. The only negative thing I have to say about our stay is that the water had a bad smell. Other than that it was great.

Owner's Response: We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately all the wells around the lake are sulphery, which is the smell. That is usually not nearly as noticeable, but with our area being a disaster-declared drought area, the sulpher smell in the well water is much more pronounced.

The cottage was better and more than we ever could have anticpated.

  • 5 of 5

The photographs of the property at the Home away site do not give it justice.We were all elated by our accommodations ,it was spotless clean, well maintained, and decorated nicer than my own home. Being able to include our pet was an added bonus. I hope to spend more time in this area of New York state, and this is where we hope to stay.The property is centrally located to all of the ssites in the area, but I could also be satified tospend the entire time at the Silver Lake location. What a bargain this is! In a word;WOW!!!!!

Great Cottage Feel!!

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this location. The pics really do not show what a great amount of space the home has. The home is right on the lake (well...one house removed) and has everything you could need to have a great "at home" feel for a vacation. The home was decorated in a cottage motif with a strong lean towards nature and outdoor activities. My family and I were never want for any tools needed to make all of our meals at home after a long day enjoying the beauty of Letchworth State Park. This home is a short 10-15 minute drive from the Perry entrance to the park. All the rooms were clean and ready with fresh linens. There were more than enough towels for our group of 8. All it all if you are going to enjoy Letchworth state park, or even Niagra (which is an hour away but we did not visit this trip) this is a great, spacious home.

Wyoming County is home to rolling hills, picturesque farms and timber and some of the best fall foliage in the area. Silver Lake is about 4 miles long and almost 1 mile wide. while not officially one of the finger lakes, we like to think of it as the 'pinky' of the finger lakes.

Silver Lake Golf Club, Camp Hough for the kids, Charcoal Corral Drive in / Mini Golf complex, Letchworth State Park and the State Park Boat Launch all within very close distance. Venture out a bit further to Beaver Meadows Audubon Preserve, Stony Brook State Park, antiquing along route 20, and so much more. Perry has a farmer's market as well as various festivals through the summer. The area hot air balloon festival, Shake on the Lake and Letchworth Craft Show are wonderful events, as well.
