Overview

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 hiking and bird watching. 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!

Excellent as usual

  • 5 of 5

4th stay here was perfect as usual, except for the creek was high due to rain, no fault of the owners obviously.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the cottage. We had a relaxing two nites together in a quiet, tranquil property from the busy city life. We will definitely come back for a longer stay.

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

The home was nestled privately down a lane by a beautiful creek. The interior was well appointed, comfortable, perfect layout and size for two! All the amenities are nice and a treat to use ie stove, frig, dishwasher, grill, tv. The back deck is connected to the kitchen so it makes dining and grilling easy. On the deck you are right in nature, viewing the creek life and the woods on the other side. The home is overlooking a private location on the creek. It has a peaceful little swimming spot where we spent hours hanging out, floating on tubes and skipping rocks :) a perfect little place! Thank you !

Such a sweet cottage! Beautifully decorated fantastic location.

  • 4 of 5

Tara and Nate put together super helpful binders filled with trail maps, historical brochures, restaurant menus, suggestions of things to do. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need including cookbooks. We really enjoyed looking through the Field guide of local birds and using binoculars. The big umbrellas and board games came in very handy on the rainy days.

If the pull out couch had a better mattress this would be a five star review.

Great place!!!
