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. In no time, you will understand why we 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 four cars. There is more parking available at Lodi Point 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 a 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 new screened in porch. Dine on the porch, as you sit at a beautiful hand crafted Amish table directly from Lancaster, PA. The porch also has a wicker furniture set that seats 4. 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, 1 Sun Dolphin pedal boat and 1 canoe for your 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. There is a large cooler on dock for your use. 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!

A PERFECT getaway on Seneca Lake

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute at this beautiful home on Seneca Lake. The sunset from the covered dock was breathtaking. The enclosed porch is ideal for relaxing, eating meals and a great view of the lake. Would love to return again next year. Wishing the Brown's many happy memories in their home. It certainly is a 10 plus.

Lovely place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Cottage was lovely inside, with spacious living area and very comfy beds. Kitchen was well stocked with assortment of pots and pans, S&P and a few spices to choose from to finish seasoning dinner. We took advantage of the lake and comfy chairs on the dock for relaxing evening coffee and sunset viewing. With rainy weather (that's part of summer too), we were glad for the table in the screened great-room to eat supper and relax outside. Kathleen was prompt answering any questions as were the neighbor/caretakers next door. Great experience all around. Thanks

Wonderfully Just Right

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! With two college aged kids, a girl and a boy, having separate bedrooms and baths was a terrific set up. The "great room" with the open concept dining, kitchen and living room was such an excellent arrangement. All four of us, who are all tall, found the room to be perfect. Plenty of seating for all of us, the kitchen is set up wonderfully. While cooking or doing dishes I could look out the window over the lake or over the living room. The kids were even agreeable to doing their usual kitchen chores. The sitting area on the dock was my favorite spot every morning for quiet time and coffee (the cushioned seating on the dock needs thicker cushions for sitting longer than 15-20 minutes but it was not a big deal at all) but I loved the glider. My husband napped a few times on the couch on the dock and my son hung his hammock up a few afternoons to "chill" and read.

The screened patio / dining room is awesome. I had to work a few morning while we were there and I chose this perfect setting to go online and get some work done. My duaghter often hung out in that area while I was working which was nice.

The house is equipped with just about anything you could need. The kitchen has all the dishes, pots and pans - even a blender and panini maker. Plenty of towels in the bathrooms, even a basket full of shampoo and supplies. And the beds are very comfortable. Not too soft, not too hard - cushioned top mattresses.

The grill needs charcoal and it's a deep Weber so get alot if you plan on grilling. We haven't used charcoal in years and we didn't have enough so it took quite a while to cook our steak. But other than that (which is minor) the house was awesome. Even our 18 and 21 year complimented me on my choice of vacation rental!

Finally, the small street along the lake was a great place for a walk or bike ride. It's about 2 miles long from end to end and it's a quiet street. So we all were either riding a bike or walking every morning.

It's off the beaten path but not too far from anything - so it's 15 minutes to good restaurants, 10 minutes to a grocery store, etc. Perfect.

If we knew we'd have both kids with us next Summer we'd already be booking it for next Summer.
