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 Perry

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.

Perfect lodging

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was as comfortable as it could be. The 3 bedrooms were nicely done and all 3 mattresses were comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you could need. It was nice to find salt, pepper, sugar and a complete array of spices. Coffee filters were a nice bonus. We had 2 minor problems but each was dealt with in a timely manner. The front porch was the high point even though we were there at a little cooler time. Cathy and Tom were perfect hosts. My only suggestion would be to put a mirror in each bedroom and a full length mirror somewhere.

Comfortable. Good Location. Clean.

Both DVD players didn't work. But, We weren't there for that. Having grown up on the lake starting in 1959, it is not unusual with a well to have sulfur when the water supply is taxed. Should not have been this year, but it was and others we were at on the lake did not.

Owner's Response: The sulpher is unfortunate, it does still occur in any given year if the cottage is not occupied consistently with the water being run every day. I will need to check into the DVD players. As I don't use them I don't always realize when something has gone amok and I have already replaced them once his year due to a power surge across the lake, but thank you for bringing that to my attention. I will address the issue.

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!!!!

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.
