Doesn't get any better than this!!

  • 5 of 5

Rustic four bedroom house situated right on Seneca Lake with an unobstructed view of the lake and beautiful sunsets. We've stayed here three times and can't wait to come back. Everything you need for a restful getaway long weekend or longer. Well located near restaurants, shops, wineries, brewpubs and Watkins Glen. Book it, you won't be sorry.

Cottage on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay at the cottage. We had a great time. The weather held up for us and we were able to grill outside and sit by the fire pit each night. The cottage is very clean when we arrive every year. It is located close to many wineries, breweries, and local farms so there is plenty to do during the days that we don't want to just sit on the dock and enjoy the lake. Thank you for having us each year.

Spied on? No deposit back!

  • 3 of 5

When booking this cottage our first priority was a pet friendly cottage. My first email I stated my sister-in-law had two poodles and we also had a dog. It was also important that we found an air conditioned cottage. Upon arrival there was a note left for us stating there was a bee infestation, and the air conditioning was broke. They said they called for repairs and exterminator. We saw no-one. It was really hot in the cottage, so my husband tried to slide open the OLD

Sticky window for air. It immediately shattered. My husband called immediately to let the owner know what happened. They said " Don't worry about it. It may of had a small crack." Thank God my husband was not cut. After arriving home I received an email stating we would not get back our deposit because we didn't pre authorize our 3 large dogs? What? I told them 2 poodles and we had a German Shepard. We were charged the pet fee! Also they said we broke their window. Ummm we paid for air conditioned cottage. So be ready to be spied on throughout your stay, because apparently someone told them we had 3 large dogs! (Nope not true). That being said it is a nice location.
