Seriously THE Best Spot on Seneca Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better vacation up in Seneca Lake! The house was perfect for our little family; two adults and two dogs. I couldn't believe how close to the water we were and now we're spoiled for future trips! This property has everything you need for a relaxing vacation; water, fire pit and loads of wine glasses. We also couldn't believe how many wineries / breweries there were surrounding us, so much fun! We also went on nice long walks daily around Peach Orchard Point with the dogs and they absolutely loved it! Can't wait to return!

Friends get-away

  • 4 of 5

Every year my hubby and I treat 2 couples (that we are very close to), to a weekend away together.

this year, we decided on 4 nights on Seneca Lake and I found this charming little nugget. We really enjoyed our stay! Just enough room, we enjoyed having our appetizers waterfront as well as on the Front Porch during our Cocktail hour. Dinner at the lovely dining table inside overlooking the Lake. I will be re-booking.

Thank you.

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!!
