Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

The lake view from the home was spectacular and location was perfect for traveling around the finger lakes. It was very clean, well stocked kitchen and comfortable for two couples. Enjoyed waking up to having coffee in the morning and ending the day with a glass of wine on the deck! Great place!

Comfortable and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

This home was a perfect location for our daily rides to state parks, wineries and brewery's. The house was clean and well maintained. The home was equipped with everything needed to make our meals and a very comfortable place to chill. Every room had a tv except for one bedroom. Jim was so accommodating when we needed to park our motorcycle trailer.

All you need!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great set-up for us! We had two couples go and it was wonderful to each have our own bathroom and our own king size beds! The amenities were great and everything is as described and pictured. Our last night we slept with our windows open and fell asleep and woke up to the waves hitting the shore... so peaceful. Checking in and out is a cinch. As others described, proper Cookware and knives if you want to make your own meals. Loved it!
