Perfect couple retreat

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very clean, well equipped and the view is awesome. We enjoyed our mornings on the deck rocking in the chairs and taking in the amazing view. We spent several evenings roasting hot dogs over the fire pit. The weather was warm enough that we were able to take a dip in the lake. If you're going to do that, water shoes are recommended.

The location is great. Friday night check out Hazlitt Winery for some entertainment from 5-8, then head up to Wagner Vineyards and Brewery to keep your night going. There are many good wineries nearby. We stumbled on Rasta Ridge for blues on Monday evening.

There are several good restaurants nearby too. We enjoyed Stonecat and pizza from Scale House Brewery. We also dined at Dano's.

Kate was great to work with and we'd highly recommend renting this cottage.

Perfect lakeside cottage

  • 5 of 5

I loved absolutely everything about the bird's nest! The cottage is so cozy,clean,and relaxing...total peace and quiet. We spent most of our time on the deck listening to the waterfall(which runs right beside the cottage)and watching the amazing sunsets.The beach feels extremely private as well...my dog and I actually braved the chilly water and loved it! The location of the cottage is perfect for driving along the wine trail, and visiting Watkins Glen. We couldn't have been happier with our stay!

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful nights at the lake cottage. The views and the deck are amazing and the cottage has everything you need and more. We loved that we could still sit outside and enjoy the lake view when it rained, from the covered deck. As the name suggests the cottage is cozy but feels very spacious and comfortable. Kate was very easy to communicate with and made the whole process super easy. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

Clean cozy cottage for two

Very nice cottage for two. Cozy and very quiet, the only sound at nite was the lake waves. No tv but the WiFi was very good.
