Quiet Family Getaway Convenient to Seneca and Cayuga

  • 4 of 5

Huckleberry Acres is a comfortable and spacious house that is very private but also convenient to Seneca Lake/Watkins Glen (20 mins) and Cayuga/Ithaca (30 mins). Our recent stay was a family vacation of four adults, a toddler, and our small dog. We had plenty of space and loved the big yard and fire pit. It was a great launching-off spot for attractions in either direction - we visited state parks, Watkins Glen and Ithaca, breweries and wineries, and a local creamery. Ken and Shelly were highly responsive to questions we sent them before and after the trip, and really want to make sure you have a great stay. Recommended!

A ton of charm!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a few days and nights at Huckleberry Acres, and it was a pleasant experience for everyone. We are 4 friends who travel and shoot landscape photography and we came to SW New York to shoot waterfalls around the Finger Lakes. While we had everything we needed to make a hearty breakfast and get out on trails throughout the whole day, by dusk, we ate dinner on our way back and came back to the house to work on our photos and rest for the evening.

Internet was slow, but we're all used to living in suburban areas with fiber optic speed. Cable TV wasn't available for post-season baseball, but it was ok to rest and relax each night.

For all that the house offered us, it was good to put away the distractions and enjoy each day. We each had a bedroom to ourselves and that worked out well. The owners were available by email before we arrived and I'm sure that if we had had an issue, they would have been available to help us. We enjoyed our stay and had no complaints.

Enjoyable First Vacation to Finger Lakes, NY

  • 4 of 5

Peaceful property (with caring, considerate owners) that's within close distance to great NY State Parks/Seneca Lake/Watkins Glen. Enjoyed the hot tub after our hiking trips and appreciated the updated kitchen. Plenty of room for our family of four; we enjoyed our trip!

Nice and quiet place

  • 4 of 5

nice old farm house with a lot of charm. Very quiet surroundings, very nice back yard. Almost no traffic on the street. Keep in mind that the house is a bit old and has no AC. However at night it gets chilly and perhaps you may not even need it.

Very nice, quiet property with lots of privacy

  • 5 of 5

Myself and four motorcycle buddies stayed for a week to ride around the Finger Lakes and northern Pennsylvania areas. The location was only 5 minutes from Watkins Glen where we were able to get everything we needed. We would have breakfast in the morning and then go for a ride. In the afternoon we would come back, make dinner and then sit around a camp fire, have a few drinks and tell stories without fear of disturbing the neighbors. The owners were great in arranging to have firewood on site (for a fee) so that we didn't have to carry it on the bikes. Everyone in the group thought the place was perfect for us.

Room for all

  • 4 of 5

This charming country/farm house is very spacious and comfortable. We had plenty of room for everyone and the property is very peaceful. Hot tub was a nice bonus. We were there for Ithaca graduation and it was easy to get to.

One thing to keep in mind is there is only one shower, the other bathroom is a tub only. We were ok with it and made it work. Just something to keep in mind.
