About Pat Hoke

My family has been on Seneca Lake since 1930 and this is the first home I have owned. We have a large family and this is the 6th cottage that we own. I chose this cottage because my siblings and I have a very strong connection to the lake and the area (we all live out of state) and it is our favorite place to come and relax. We all became familiar with the water as babies, and it continues to draw us back. Some of my best memories (I'm 30 and single) have been at the lake. I've made quite an effort to modernize and update my cottage recently, so that I and my guests will thoroughly enjoy staying here. I love the location and the yard. It's very bright and peaceful, with expansive views of the lake and surrounding natural setting. I feel very much at home there and I hope you will too.

Pat Hoke purchased this cottage in 2014

What makes this cottage unique

I chose this cottage because it reminded me of my grandfather's cottage when I was growing up, and because it was very well maintained. I especially like the way it feels. Cheerful and homey.

Nice place as expected. We enjoyed everything and it was perfect for our visit

  • 5 of 5

It was nice as expected and exactly as described. We mainly slept and showered there as it's more of the off season but it would be great in the summer as well.

Quant and clean quiet setting

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our fall stay in this quiet setting. The home was clean and decorated nicely. My only complaint is that the listing says it comes with wine cards. They are available if you travel I miles away to pick them up. This should have been mentioned prior to arrival so we could have stopped on our way in otherwise we enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Jamie your comments are very much appreciated, as is your suggestion for the wine cards. We will make that clearer to our guests in the future. FYI - the wine cards are complimentary for our guests. They are not included in your cost for the cottage. We buy them for our guests because we feel they offer great savings, and the only charge to you is if you lose a card. We do not leave them at the cottage because not everyone uses them, but they are available at our office if a guest requests it. Thank you. Glad you had a good time. Pat and Brenda

Nice cottage on the lake close to many wineries

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed. The location is very convenient to access the wine trail and it's close to Geneva and WatkinsGlenn. We had a great weekend!

Nice Location

Nice property near the vineyards and quiet. Good for kayaking and biking. House is charming and cozy. We had a few issues but the owners took care of them.

Great view but needs some work

  • 3 of 5

We had a nice stay and found it to be suitable for our needs which were mostly sleeping, showering, and enjoying the hot tub at the end of a day.

That said, the interior is in need of some renovation. There is a lot of shoddy "craftsmanship" throughout. For the price paid you're getting a nice view and a hot tub. If you're not planning to use the hot tub it's definitely overpriced.

It's also located more toward the north end of the lake on the west side. About 20 minutes from Geneva and 30+ to Watkins Glen. This makes it somewhat inconvenient if you're leaving from the cottage to go to dinner or breakfast.

In short - I wouldn't be against staying again but I do think I'd look a little harder for a comparable place that's either less money, better located, or more recently updated.

Owner's Response: Our cottage has received consistently and universally high praise from reviewers, and from far more guests who do not write reviews but have sent us messages telling us about their excellent experiences. Two of the most frequent comments are that the cottage is exceptionally clean and well cared for, and that it is very convenient to wineries, micro breweries, restaurants, stores, etc and central to the places they wish to visit. The cottage is in the heart of the Wine Trail, 12 minutes from Geneva, 23 miles from Watkins Glen, and 6 miles from Penn Yan, where there is a 24-hour super market, several restaurants, stores, gas stations, and a movie theater. It is 1 mile from the 6-mile Outlet Trail for hiking between Seneca and Keuka Lakes, one of the best diners in the Finger Lakes for breakfast and lunch, and two excellent ice cream places. Nearly everything in the cottage is about 2 years old, the [point when we completely redid the cottage]. Last year the deck was pressure washed and restained. All the rooms are big, and the living room, with 2 sets of sliding glass doors, opens onto a full width deck facing the lake. The property is very quiet and peaceful with awesome views. It has a very nice dock, beach, and fire pit. We appreciate these guests staying with us, and they took good care of the cottage, but their observations are disappointing, given how hard we and our housekeepers work to provide a positive experience for our guests every time.
