About the property

Well- Equipped Lakefront Cottage- 3 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 Bathrooms- Sleeps 8

If you want to get away from it all, make wonderful memories with family, friends or significant other, then 'Sunset Cottage' is for you. Our ranch style cottage is cheerful, clean and inviting. Whether you are sipping a cup of coffee as the sun rises or having a glass of wine as the sun sets, you will completely feel at peace here. In no time, you will understand why we recently purchased this beautiful cottage after renting it for several years.

Nestled in the heart of wine country, we are centrally located on the east side of Seneca Lake in Lodi, NY. Take a three minute stroll to Lodi State Park, where there are playgrounds, picnic tables and a splendid view of Seneca Lake. The cottage is located on a dead end street with limited traffic. The area is a very quiet and peaceful place, where friends, families or couples can stay for a nice, relaxing time. The cottage is also a short fifteen minute drive to Cayuga Lake. We are conveniently located near several wineries, breweries and distilleries. Just a few minutes south of Lodi, is the quaint town of Watkins Glenn, where there are several restaurants, shops and a Walmart. Head north of Lodi to the charming town of Geneva and enjoy the many wineries. Stop at Three Brothers Wineries to hear a live band or if you prefer, take a pleasant drive back to the cottage and enjoy all the amenities it has to offer.

The parking area is to the left and right of the house. Parking is for a total of three cars or two cars and a boat trailer. There is more parking available at Lodi State Park. As you enter this lovely cottage, you will immediately feel at home. The large windows and extensive lighting brightens the whole cottage so nicely. The open floor plan makes this home extra special. Straight ahead is the beautiful, updated kitchen with a stunning panoramic view of the lake. To the left is a bedroom with two twin beds and a half bathroom. The bedroom has a closet and a nice view of the lake. A laundry room is to the left of the bathroom. To the right of the kitchen is the dining area and living room. The dining area seats six. If necessary, a drop leaf table offers two more seats. The living room is very comfortable and spacious, with it's beautiful cathedral ceilings. Large glass sliding doors allow the guests to enjoy the wonderful view of Seneca Lake. There are two sofas (1 of them is a sleeper sofa) and a futon. There are many cable channels to watch on the brand new 48 inch flat screen LED TV. There is also a wide assortment of games, DVDs, books and puzzles in the credenza. To the right of the living room are two more bedrooms. The first bedroom has a great view of the lake, full bathroom, king size bed and walk-in closet. The other bedroom has a bathroom with toilet, shower, queen size bed and closet. The house has central air and heat. In addition to this, there are two Hunter ceiling fans in the living room area. A large sliding glass door leads you to the peaceful screened in porch which has a picnic table and 4 chairs to relax and enjoy the breathtaking view.

The natural level lakefront is a huge plus. There are no steps, just walk a few feet to pure paradise. You can sit by the fire or sit on the private covered dock and watch boats go by and kayakers have fun. If you have your own boat, there is a boat lift for an additional cost. There are three kayaks for your own use and enjoyment. Take advantage of the beautiful clean, shale based lake and go for a cool, refreshing swim. As the sun begins to set and nightfall will soon be upon you, sit on the dock and take in the incredible, breathtaking view of the sun setting over Seneca Lake. A perfect end to a perfect day is to relax by the fire, listen to the rippling sound of the water and gaze at the spectacular stars.

Life is good at 'Sunset Cottage'. We realize how important it is for you to enjoy your time at the cottage. Your happiness is very important to us too. We will make every effort to keep you very happy at 'Sunset Cottage'. Cheers!

Great Vacation, Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property. It was beautiful. We were pleasantly surprised to find that if we had forgotten anything, you had provided it for us. We had a wonderful time and I would come back, but my husband always wants to go to a different place every year.

Fantastic, with only one negative...

  • 4 of 5

Sunset Cottage at Seneca Lake was an absolute beauty. The homeowners have thought of everything in consideration of their renters. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need and providing clean sheets and towels is an extra bonus! The house was sparkling clean upon on our arrival and ready for our week long stay. We enjoyed some wine tasting, cherry picking, and fireworks viewing during our 4th of July stay. Wonderful!

The only negative I have is nothing whatsoever to do with the cottage, the homeowners, or caretakers. It is the conditions of the actual lake. Every day of our stay the shale beach area and shallow water were littered with many dead fish. This made for a less than pleasurable swimming experience. It was fine to kayak as the fish were washing up on shore and not in deeper waters. Our little ones were highly disappointed not to spend more time in the water. Who wants to swim alongside dead fish? The fish were mostly alewives, but I also saw dead catfish and trout. I asked a friendly neighbor if this is a regular occurrence at this lake and he shared that there is a major "fish kill" once every ten years or so. Apparently, the westerly wind pushes the dead fish to the east side of the lake. The same neighbor dug holes for us to bury the dead fish because putting them in the trash would lead to flies/maggots. Again, this is no fault of anyone, but I thought other renters should be aware of the possibility if they were planning to swim. I would have given 5 stars if it had not been for this.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I appreciate your kind words and I understand your frustration regarding the fish. Nature took its course and the fish are no longer an issue. I appreciate your stay at Sunset Cottage. I hope you will consider staying there in the future. Enjoy your summer. Regards, Kathleen Brown

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us (three couples) stayed at Sunset Cottage for my husband's 33rd birthday and for a fun weekend away. The house was much larger than we expected with three bedrooms and a bathroom attached to each. We had never been to the Finger Lakes area and planned some hikes during the day to Watkins Glen and Robert H. Treman State Park. In the evening we took out the kayaks provided, BBQ'd on the house grill, and sat around the fire pit right next to the lake. The kitchen is so well stocked with every cooking pan, utensil, spice, and everything you could ever need. The bathrooms had plenty of towels and shampoo/soap and the bedrooms were extremely comfortable and homey. There is a brand new outdoor deck with beautiful stone and recessed lighting if you wanted to get out of the sun, and also a covered dock where we gathered on to listen to music. We couldn't have asked for anything better.

The owners are great to work with and are extremely helpful with anything you may need. We had such a great time and made many memories! We are already planning our next trip back. Thanks Kathleen and Stephen!

Absolutely Incredible Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing stay at the cottage!! We were blown away when we walked in. It was perfectly clean, inviting, and cozy and decor was amazing. The cottage is in a great location for touring the wineries of the Finger Lakes and for experiencing the beauty of Seneca Lake. The amazing porch, just steps away from the water, was our favorite part of the house. The owners truly care about their guests and that is evidenced by how amazing the house is. It was a breath of fresh air every time we entered the home and we loved coming home to such a great place. We were all sad to leave and all plan on returning in the future!! Thank you so much!

Had a girls weekend with high school friends and couldn't have picked a better spot! Wineries and breweries nearby, and a peaceful spot on Seneca Lake for making new memories. We will be back!
