About the property

Great Camp/Cottage on Seneca Lake 200 ft Private Beach/Private Dock/Campfires

Great Vintage Camp with a spectacular view of Seneca Lake. The cottage is located in a private forest like setting overlooking Seneca Lake. From your cottage porch listen to the lapping of the lake and the breeze rustling through the pines. Take a short stroll down the lane to your priviate beach that comes equipped with kyakas, canoe and fire pit. The beach is the perfect place to hang out with family and friends while roasting marshmallows and telling tales. Walk out onto the dock that comes complete with chairs, umbrella and a mesmerizing view. The dock is a great place for an afternoon of kicking back, reading, sunning, sipping wine or a casual afternoon swim. Woodland's Vintage Camp is a totally great place to enjoy your vacation on Seneca Lake. Also check our Rose Hill Guest Quarters (VRBO #589749) in the Village of Watkins Glen for extra guest or if you need to be closer to the village and the racetrack.

About Theresa Woodland

Our Vintage Camp/Cottage was our summer home for many a year. Since moving to Watkins Glen and purchasing a large estate home overlooking the lake (VRBO #589749) we thought we would let some others enjoy our hideaway on the lake. I love to cook so we put in a new kitchen and took down a wall so I could enjoy the party as much as my guests. Lots of local farm grown produce to put together that unforgettable meal. The porch is where we spend lots of time overlooking the lake. Check out the 'WELCOME TO THE PORCH' sign on your arrival. This magical camp is in a forrest like setting over looking our private beach. We have done our best to keep our Camp/Cottage a place to relax and kick back and put your feet up. The place is clean and comfortable but with unique charm that only a camp/cottage can offer.

Why Theresa Woodland chose New York

This magical cottage has been in the family for the last 90 years. In 1988 we purchase this unique camp from the family estate and have been totally over joyed to call it home for many summers when we lived in Florida. In 2011 we bought a lovely five acre estate (VRBO #589749)in the Village of Watkins Glen and to add something else on our plate a local marina (Frog Hollow Marina) Since we seemed to be very busy with our projects we decided to rent our cottage and let others enjoy this special spot. Our Camp/Cottage is situated in a private forest like setting. We have two acres with 200 ft of private beach with fire pit, kayakas and hugh dock for entertaining. True relaxation in a private setting. Check out the sign at the cottage 'At The Lake We Forget To Count The Days'!

What makes this cottage unique

Great View of Seneca Lake. Cottage is in a private forest like setting. Private beach. Private dock. Kayaks, canoe, beach, fire pit. 'AT THE LAKE WE FORGET TO COUNT THE DAYS'

Wonderful place to relax and be at peace with the world.

Rustic and lovely. Campfires on the beach. Breakfast on the porch. Days hanging out on the dock drinking wine and reading books. Swimming kayaking. This Vinage Cottage is very clean and set up for a wonder kicked back vacation.

Beautiful...

  • 5 of 5

We knew the cottage was going to have character just from the photos....what we didn't know was how much thought and care had been given to the little things that make a place really special, like the welcoming items in the refrigerator, or the individual baskets for bathroom items (to name just a couple). We lived on the porch whenever possible, and there was a.c. and fans for when things got a little...sticky. And what a wonderful thing that we could bring our dog with us! We would return in a minute!

Awesome spot!

  • 5 of 5

Such a cute cottage on Seneca Lake, packed to the gills with everything you would need...pots/pans, Pyrex, Tupperware, dishes/glasses, utensils, coffee maker, oil/vinegars, spices, sheets, towels, hairdryer, TP and other bathroom toiletries you may have forgotten. Really great screened in front porch overlooking the lake. Beach area, dock, awesome fire pit, kayaks and canoe, charcoal grills. Such a great trip! Ages 1 1/2, 9, mid-thirties, forties and fifties...fun had by all. I would definitely recommend to friends/family and we will be back again.

Absolutely incredible!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days in May at this beautiful house and it was absolutely incredible! The house itself was so charming, from the screened in porch (with lake view!) to the cozy wood burning stove. The beach was huge and had a great fire pit, and it was awesome to have the kayaks to take out on the water! We would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a quiet retreat and cannot wait to stay there again :)

Wonderful cottage - building family memories

  • 5 of 5

I was lucky enough to return to my routes of WNY last week and stay in this amazing cottage. The view is to die for and the cotttage secluded but easy to find. 10 mins from Watkins Glen this cabin is an wonderful boho style vintage cottage with 3 nice size bedrooms upstairs. The owner has every detail down to a science...cubbies in the bathroom for guest, tons of towels and a gourmet kitchen with nice pots and large new fridge. There was a goodie package--nice touch when we arrived and the days sitting on the dock with all the chairs and kayaks made the nighttime campfire and amazing sunsets a peaceful paradise for my grownup family of 5. SO many memories made this week..disconnecting, wine tasting in the area and talking on the dock or while on the boats provided. This is a gem of a place..cannot wait to return!!

Woodland's Vintage Camp is located on Seneca Lake with a magical view of the lake and placed in forrest like setting. Our private dock is great for afternoon sunning, reading a great book, boat watching or sipping a fine glass of local wine. Our private beach beckons for campfires and marshmellow roasts. The cottage is located 7 miles north of Watkins Glen off of Rt 14 right down the hill from Rock Stream Winery. You will have your choice of 30 or more wineries in the area, Brew Pubs and a great Cheese Trail offering local cheese. The area is beautiful and quaint. Everywhere you drive you will be surround by vinegards and great views of the lake. Watkin Glen which is 7 miles to the south will provide you all kind of night life and dinning if you can pull yourself away from this magical setting. Ithaca home to Cornell University is 30 minutes to the west, Geneva home to Hobrat/Willam Smith Cottage is 30 minutes to the north at the end of the Lake. If you continue on another 10 minutes you will arrive at Seneca Fall the Birth Place of The Women's Rights Movement. Corning of Corning Museum of Glass fame (This is a MUST SEE) is 30 minutes to the east. Lots to see, Lots to do or just put your boat at the dock and enjoy your beautiful setting.
