4.5 Stars - Cute & rustic cottage with a GREAT location

  • 4 of 5

My family of 6 stayed here for a long-weekend in May. The location was wonderful - right on the lake. It was 10 minutes from Watkins Glen and central to many great restaurants, breweries, & wineries. Definitely check out Stonecat Cafe for dinner, Two Goats Brewing for beer, & Red Newt for wine! The living room, kitchen, and deck were the best things about the house. The downside is that the bedrooms are tiny and there is only 1 bathroom (this was advertised correctly on VRBO, I just didn't really pay attention since I was mesmerized by the view and location). Overall, we had a great time!

Exactly what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I take an annual trip to the fingerlakes every October with two friends. This rustic little cottage fit the four of us perfectly. We appreciated all of the seating inside and out. The location was close to a lot of good wineries and breweries. We really enjoyed this cozy home for the week. We would stay again for sure!!

Perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

In spite of a cool and rainy weekend we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. House was comfortable, family room provides a great space for visiting and board game events. Kitchen well equipped EXCEPT for big pot.

We hated to leave

  • 5 of 5

The cottage fit our needs and more. The clean cottage is very well laid out with many windows. The access to the water could not be better, with a large amount of decking, docking and wide gradual stairs into the water. The water was pristine. Everything you need to cook is there--even cookbooks. Decor is very homey and comfortable. Drive from Watkins Glen is short. Watkins Glen has much to offer, but relaxing at the cottage was my thing.

Charming cottage, excellent location!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our recent stay at the Best Spot on Seneca Lake. The house was clean and very comfortable. We thought we were in heaven when we discovered the reclining couches on our second day. We enjoyed the views and the beautiful sunsets across the lake. Hiking in the area was plentiful and the wineries and breweries were a blast with so many options nearby. We brought a lot of meals prevailed and the kitchen was very well stocked w supplies to fill in the meals with sides. We just had s great time. We were so happy there was air conditioning. It was warm some nights. We lived the grass yard and the fire out! We enjoyed floating around in the water. It was wonderful that the stairs were an option for Grandma and Grandpa to access the water! Everything was great. We love rustic. Thank you so much for sharing your gem with us! Will come again!
