About the property

Experience Nature At Its Best, Without Giving Up Comfortable Amenities

Come relax and let all your worries float away as you relax on a private deck while listening to a babbling creek. Warm your toes with a crackling fire, as you watch the sun slowly dip behind the mountains.

Keep your eyes keenly attentive to the many opportunities to see wildlife at its best. It is very common as you pour your first cup of coffee, to see a bald eagle perched in a tree across the creek. Nearby a deer is going about it's daily activities unaware of your presence, and trout finding its first meal of the day in the clear water just off the edge of the bank.

This cottage features a fully equipped kitchen with many on hand ingredients ready to whip up your favorite meal. Comfortable living room with a leather sleeper sofa, large flat screen T.V., as well as a gas wood stove to take the chill out of those chilly nights. A cozy bedroom with a queen size bed, nice size bath with freshly washed towels and linens.

Attractions: Centrally located to many interests, Finger Lakes Wineries, Breweries, High class restaurants, Trout fishing, Hiking, and endless amount of state land for hunting/snowmobiling. There is also two kayaks/ life jackets, and fishing gear available to make your stay that much more enjoyable.

What makes this cottage unique

When we first saw the natural beauty of the surrounding area, it was love at first sight! It has been said, we have the nicest view of Owego Creek, and we would have to agree. The sounds of nature, and the creek, have a nice calming effect. You will enjoy it as much as we do!

Great cabin for two people

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was so cute! Very clean and inviting. There was a nice bottle of wine on the table waiting for us when we arrived. The kitchen was well stocked with all the necessary cooking utensils, which we took advantage of. The town of Owego was so quaint and clean. There was some great places to eat and we really enjoyed the antiquing!!! The property was perfect for what we wanted. It was private but still close to town. The scenery was so pretty, the fall foliage was gorgeous. The stream was beautiful. The neighbors German Shepherd came over to visit us, he was very friendly. The only thing we can say that was not desirable was a bad smell coming from the kitchen. We only seemed to smell it in the evening. It was a dirty water/moldy kind of smell. Not sure if the drains didn't drain well or what. We noticed the most after running the dishwasher. If it weren't for this, we would give it 5 stars. All in all, we had a great stay!!

Wonderful return visit!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is small and completely stocked with all the amenities you could ask for making it quite a treat to experience. This was our second stay at the cottage and we loved it just as much as our first visit. The views from every angle of the property are gorgeous, the Owego creek is literally footsteps away, and the little town of Owego itself is one of our favorites places to relax and explore. Highly recommend the River Rose Cafe and shop, and the Tioga Trails cafe while you're visiting for some great homemade food. We look forward to our next visit! Thanks!

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. Everything was just like was stated in the description. Homeowners gave us some great suggestions for restaurants, etc. in the area. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend too.

If your lookin for relaxation away from the business of everyday life ,work, come here

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful The cottage was very clean and well-equipped with anything that you could need. The highlight of our trip was as soon as we got there ,we walked out back and saw a beautiful bald eagle perched on a tree about 100 feet away. We saw it three times over four days and have a great video of it it was majestic. Our national bird in its natural setting. This was a dream for me as I always wanted to see an eagle. I was so upset that I forgot my binoculars and when I went into the kitchen there was a pair right there with a bird watching book. . Great spot for birdwatching Some people may think they will miss the Wi-Fi connection but you don't. The kids play cards watch videos hung around the fire it is a nature lovers paradise. good fishing and kayaking. Only down side is that we could not stay longer.
