About Jo Gleason

Hi, My name is Jo Gleason and I am the current property manager of Gleason Cottage.

My husband Ray and I purchased "Gleason Cottage" in 2013 with our two sons and their wives. We are a large family all from New York Sate.

I am a small town girl that loves the outdoors and everything to do with nature. I especially love this beautiful area of lakes, streams, mountains and hills in New York. Having the cottage and being able to correspond with so many wonderful people all over the United States has been so much fun for me. I have been retired for almost 10 years and

this is without a doubt one of the most satisfying I have ever had.

Jo Gleason purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Jo Gleason chose Bath

It's the perfect getaway destination. Quiet Lake with beautiful surroundings. The cottage is more like a home than a cottage, roomy, clean, comfortable with all the amenities!

What makes this cottage unique

We have completely remodeled this cottage for our guests enjoyment. Our cottage has a huge fully equipped kitchen with everything you will need except the food. Our three bedrooms are spacious and sunny. The living room is comfy, cozy with a beautiful view of the lake. Come and experience what made us fall in love with this little gem on the lake! We know you will want to make this your home away from home year after year.

Well kept, scenic, great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation at this beautiful cottage. The owners were very customer service oriented, and the neighbors took good care of us as well. The property is well kept and they have two bikes, many inflatable water toys, two kayaks, a pedal boat, and a row boat, and a beautiful porch overlooking the lake. The cottage was big enough to accommodate our family of seven in its three bedrooms without problem. They have some toys and books for children, and magazines out for adults. They have a nice living room with an entertainment center for a rainy day or lazy afternoon, and a well equipped kitchen. They even have fishing equipment, and left us ingredients for smores as a gift (oh, I forgot to mention they have a fire pit down by their dock). Two quick notes- 1. The home is well ventilated with many fans and ceiling fans, but there is only AC in the main bedroom, and although there is a washing machine, there is no dryer on premises. There is a small laundry area across the street which charges 25 cents to dry your clothes. Overall it was an amazing stay and we would definitely recommend it and hope to come back.

Lovely Little Lake

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this lake house despite the rainy, windy weather. The house had everything we needed and was very clean when we arrived. We would have loved to have spent some time on the lake using the boats, but weather did not permit. I would recommend this spot to others without hesitation, but wish you sunnier skies than we experienced. :)

peaceful and comfortable cottage in lovely area

  • 5 of 5

We wanted somewhere relaxing and peaceful at the end of our two week road trip in Ontario and New York State, and found the perfect property here. Situated on a lovely lake, with facilities for swimming and canoeing (including life jackets), a couple of bikes for pedalling and a lovely deck for just lounging and watching the world go by, the cottage is a good size (two double rooms with ensuite and one room with bunk beds) and ideally suited our family of two adults and two teens. The arrangement is a little unconventional as you have to walk through the ensuite bathrooms to get the the respective bedrooms, but this isn't a problem once you get used to it.

The Cottage is homely rather than 'modern' in style - if you are looking for minimalism and designer taps, then maybe this is not for you, but we liked it and found it reassuringly comfortable.

Jo left us a welcome package of goodies, and a note, so we really felt welcomed.

We explored the Finger Lakes area from this cottage and the location, at the south-southwest corner of the area, did mean that there was quite a bit of driving - but the roads are good, and places like Corning and Elmira are quite accessible from the cottage, as are the main lakes.

All in all a great stay and I would definitely stay here again.
