Scenic and peaceful!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. It was clean, seemed somewhat new, and had all of the amenities of home, but with the added gorgeous view of Seneca Lake and quiet of the countryside. Sally and John were very communicative but also not intrusive at all, offering to make suggestions for restaurants, etc. if we needed anything. There was an issue one day of our stay with the air conditioning, and they let us know about it right away and we really didn't need to use it at night anyway so it was not a big deal to us. The only reason we gave it less than 5 stars was that the mattress was quite soft, it created a sort of "dip" in the bed when both of us were in the bed together. So while we realize that mattresses can't always please everyone's tastes, we thought that it was a little too soft and was difficult to get comfortable in. Otherwise, we loved our stay - John and Sally are great hosts and even gave us a bottle of wine to enjoy. So much better than staying in a hotel!

A wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This bungalow was only second to the welcome we received from John and Sally. Both are just a delight and so very friendly. A bottle of wine was waiting for us as we walked in. The beautiful apartment had everything we could need, towels, full kitchen, comfy bed, everything. Our view of Seneca Lake was magnificent! The bungalow has its own entrance and is private from the main house. There is even a nice patio that can be used in warm weather! Absolutely clean! We just loved it!

Beautiful carriage house with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the carriage house. The accommodations were very nice. Everything was very clean and new and the check in process was very easy. The view of the lake was beautiful and it's a perfect location- close to so many wineries and an easy drive into Watkins Glen. We would definitely stay here again!

Fantastic view. Nice hosts. Nice apartment.

  • 4 of 5

John and Sally were very gracious hosts. The apartment is super clean and bright. Lots of natural light. The view from the apartment and outside is amazing. We sat outside to watch the sun set every night. The location is also great. 10 minutes from Watkins Glen. Try the Two Goats and Grist Iron brew pubs that are close by.

The property is located on the east side of Seneca Lake and affords excellent sunset views.

  • 4 of 5

The owners live on-site and were very responsive to our needs. For example, there were issues with the air conditioner not working properly. They promptly took care of the matter and had it repaired. The bungalow is very clean, well maintained and in an excellent location. It was also reasonably priced, especially when compared with other rentals in the area. We are planning to return next year.
