Stunning view, cozy cottage, great place!!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say strongly enough how much we enjoyed our short stay. Wish we had another day. The view of the lake is stunning, the cottage is cozy, and well appointed. The owner, Jim, was quick to respond to any questions. We were not expecting the bottle of local wine and cheese in the fridge. Fantastic addition!! We definitely want to come back!

We came to the Finger Lakes a few weeks ago for a wedding. We procrastinated with booking and missed reasonable prices (and availability) in the hotels. However, we are SO happy that we rented this home instead of staying in town (our friends were jealous and wished they had done the same). The home is beautifully updated and modern. It is well kept and very clean. The lake views and dock were appreciated every day. The owner was very nice and easy to work with - they even had the home decorated for the season (this impressed my friend who noted that not many pay attention to these small welcoming details). I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a nice, relaxing stay - close to town (five minutes maybe?). I'm trying to find a weekend to send my parents on a surprise retreat.

Quiet, peaceful getaway with a fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great! The view is incredible and the owners have done a great job updating the cottage and making it very welcoming. It is so peaceful to wake up and walk out through the hallway and see that amazing view through the huge windows on the deck as the sun rises over the lake. It was very peaceful when we were there and you are only a few miles from town so it's easy to go in for dinner or whatever. The kayaks and firepit on the dock are great and a nice inclusion to pass the time on the lake. The only downsides are the step walk down the yard to get to the dock (have good traction if it's damp!) and the road to get down to the cottage was a bit washed out in certain areas, just have to take it very very slow to avoid the bumps. Minor things for an amazing property that you could relax at for days on end!

Awesome cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. Cottage was neat and clean with all the amenities. Even had a welcome basket of cheese and wine. Going up and down the hill was rough only because we are in our 60s. Yet worth the walk. Enjoyed the fire pit and kayaks. Would highly recommend this cottage.
