Such a great location right on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this charming cottage located right on the lake with two docks which we used for our antique wooden boat. Located close to town, it offered the best of both worlds. The front porch was the best aspect especially on a stormy day. My kids loved the hammock. The steps to the cottage were fine for us but quite a struggle for our elderly parents. We plan to return next summer and many more to come! Thank you

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage almost a year in advance of Cornell's graduation weekend. We were thinking we needed a place for the grandparents and the rest of the family to congregate during the weekend festivities. As it turned out, the grandparents decided the trip would be too much for them. That turned out to be the right decision as anyone with mobility problems would find the steps to and from the cottage a bit daunting. Carolyn mentioned this earlier but we thought it would still be ok. Know yourself and your guests. It is steep terrain. Thankfully, we had no problems at all and absolutely loved the location and the cottage. Carolyn was in the middle of renovations so I am sure it's even more spectacular now. We definitely would rent again and wish we had thought to do this when our child was at Cornell for 4 years! What a vacation spot!!

Beautiful lake views!

  • 5 of 5

Super cute cottage right on the lake. It was perfect for our family coming in for Cornell graduation weekend. Loved hanging out on the porch and dock to enjoy the pretty lake view. Very secluded with lots of trees, but just a few minutes drive to town to restaurants and stores. Loved our stay here. Would highly recommend.
