"Wonderful Thanksgiving at Lakefront Seneca Cottage"
Left on 12/18/2013 for a stay in November 2013 | jwiseReviewed Dec 18, 2013Stayed Nov 2013
We came for a romantic Thanksgiving getaway and everything at the cottage was comfortable, clean, and conducive to relaxing! It was super cold (18 degrees), so we didn't spend much time at the lake... We did enjoy the fireplace, the views, the amenities, and photographing the gorgeous sunsets on Seneca. The cottage was the perfect spot to launch our explorations of local wineries, Watkins Glen, and Geneva. Joe was wonderful to work with - he had to come out and thaw our frozen pipes one morning! It was my boyfriend & I - the bed (twin, convertible to king) was comfortable beyond our expectations. We did some cooking and found everything we needed in the well equipped kitchen. We hope to come back in the spring to take advantage of the lake & do some fishing. Recommended!

Joe and Pat's cottage is great! The cottage was very clean, well-maintained and well-equipped. We had a wonderful relaxing weekend - in the winter, so I can't comment on the water fun but I'll bet it's great! I can say the fireplace worked just perfectly. Joe and Pat are great to work with and were extremely helpful with information about restaurants and various activities in the Finger Lakes. We certainly hope to be back again - maybe when it's warmer and we can take advantage of the beautiful lakefront area at the cottage. Thanks for sharing your great cottage, Joe and Pat!

Joe was very accomodating with serving us, such as bringing over his own barbeque grill when the rental one went on the fritz. We had a blast fishing with him and his service there was stellar. Could have used a window aC unit the first afternoon, but after that we were good. Absolutely fell in love with Seneca Lake Dry Reislings, especially Herman J Weimer's. Read more
We do have air conditioners for the cottage but you never asked!
"Way more than expected!!"

This was our 2nd visit, having stayed there for a long weekend in October 2012. This visit was 10 days and was the perfect vacation to celebrate our birthdays and my retirement. There were the 2 of us and our dog. My wife is handicapped and she had no problems functioning in the cottage with her walker. Joe called and let us know that he would probably be away when we arrived but to go in and make ourselves at home. Everything was perfect and we quickly settled in. This is the ideal location for visiting the wineries (I counted 23 between the cottage and Watkins Glen), the outlet mall, restaurants in Geneva, or just enjoying the views of the lake from the cottage. Go fishing with Joe, it was a great time! Also, this area is mostly permanent residents so it is like a quiet residential neighborhood, that just happens to be right on the water. Joe was always available if needed but he was not intrusive. He takes meticulous care of the property and the landscaping is beautiful.

...because we ended a two week vacation in the finger lakes. We wanted to be centrally located to the wineries and to be honest, for the price of the rental, it was nice to have a "home of our own" after spending the last two weeks in hotel rooms.
I contacted Joe via email and in no time he called me regarding the rental. My husband was a little uneasy with sending a $200 deposit because he didn't trust that the rental and Joe actually existed but we took Joe on good faith and he came through!
When we arrived, Joe met us and gave us a tour of the house. It was very clean and organized. The cottage had everything we could have wanted. We wanted to sleep in a king sized bed and Joe had a twin to king converter which was acceptable - not the most comfortable but we slept well.
We didn't get to use the grill and the lake but I imagine it would have been very nice. The cabin is centrally located to everything and it has a lovely view of the lake.
My only main criticism is that I dont know if i would have felt comfortable staying here if it were not just my husband and me. There are 2 bedrooms, one with 2 twins/king and the back room with bunk beds. In order to get to the bunk bed room, you have to walk through the main bedroom and the main bedroom is completely open to the living quarters. Like I said, we were comfortable though.
Lastly, if you haven't ever rented a cottage or house for vacation, know that there is usually a long list of things to clean before you leave and the last day there is usually spent cleaning in order to get your security back. That's to ensure the rental is ready for the next renter. This rental is the same.
We would definitely stay here again should we find ourselves back at the Finger Lakes.

From the time we arrived to the time we left Joe was more than helpful. We were greeted @ the door with an uplifting welcome, treated tremendously during our stay, & departed with a encouraging welcome back. The cottage was nothing less than wonderful. Very clean, but very comfortable. This location is great, very close to town but private enough to relax & enjoy. We really enjoyed the personalized service Joe offers. The day of fishing with Joe on our boat was priceless. Thanks again Joe
