Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was very well put together. The wood working on the walls and the ceiling was phenomenal, and the owners really put a lot of time and effort into their rental to make you feel at home. Close enough to a state park, and surrounding towns (auburn, skaneateles). I wish the bed was a little more comfortable, but everything was spotless being beleif. Believe me, if you stay here- you have nothing to worry about. These two are pro's at this. The Kitchen was fully stocked and equipped as well for your needs, we went without nothing here. As long as you don't mind them living below you (they were very respectful of privacy and gracious hosts) then this place is a charming getaway, and a great bargain at what they ask for.

Great spot for a quick getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I both enjoyed our stay here, as it combined everything we were looking for: a comfortable, clean room, with a great view of the lake, located in a super nice area of the Finger Lakes. Rodney and Carmela are warm and friendly hosts that make you feel at home, and the room has beautiful woodwork and a kitchenette that had everything we needed. Best of all is the location... we didn't need to do a lot of driving once we got there, since Auburn is nearby (with an awesome little restaurant called Tom Thumb's for burgers and ice cream cones), as well as nearby Moravia, with Fillmore Glen State Park (which has a great gorge hike with many waterfalls). A great trip! Thank you!

Beautiful, clean, and perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was the most amazing VRBO experience I have ever had! You stay in the second story of their house, but you have a private entrance and lots of respect of your privacy. The view is unparalleled and you can walk down the stairs to the lake and kayak and boat, they even have kayaks for you to use! I have never woken up to a more beautiful location. So relaxing and lovely, I hope to return someday. It was also the cleanest place I have ever stayed.

Comfortable stay with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this lake house are extremely accommodating and welcoming. Not only does the apartment have beautiful views but the actual place itself is very clean, cute and will have you feeling right at home! This amazing getaway spot is close to wineries and other activities in the Fingerlakes. We will definitely be recommending and revisiting this spot, what a find!

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in this beautiful lakefront space for 4 nights and we wished we could have stayed longer. Beautifully crafted to give it a true cabin feel with western facing windows that give way to the most spectacular sunset views over the lake, this place made us rethink our life goals. (Yes, it's that beautiful!) Ten minutes to Filmore Glen where exists some of the prettiest waterfall-dotted hiking trails, 35 minutes to Ithaca where there are tons of fun things to do and more outdoor beauty (Treman State Park and Taughannock Falls), along with kayaks right at your front door make this place the perfect getaway for nature lovers. Oh, and we also made s'mores by the fire pit, which Rodney was kind enough to set up for us. Rodney and Carmela were super laid-back, warm, and helpful and their two dogs, Max and Sox, were also quite the charmers. Rodney and Carmela live in the house below, but were always super respectful of our space. We rarely saw them, but when we did, it was always pleasant. It's a clean, quiet, peaceful space and, simply put, the perfect getaway, especially for us city folk. Can't wait to return!

The Sound of Silence....Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I arrived with my fiance' for the days leading up to our wedding....the peacefulness and beauty of our stay overlooking the lake was the very best way to begin Our Married Life Together....all stress leaves your world as you watch the sunset over the lake, or fall asleep looking up thru the window above your head watching the stars twinkle or simply listening to the gentle sound of the waves of the lake water. We loved having the kayaks available for touring the lake and fishing, a short ride away we hiked Filmore State Park trails, stopped in town for a slice of pizza, mailed our marriage license at the local post office and picked up food supplies at the local little market. Morning coffee was on the deck overlooking the lake, watching the fish jump and birds visit the hanging birdhouses. All comforts of home are there for you, stocked kitchen, comfy bed, Amazing View, awesome hot water pressure for a relaxing shower that simply makes you not want to leave.
