“Log cabin -- rustic and relaxing”
The lake and the cabin setting are perfect -- very quiet and seemingly remote, yet close to many things to do in the Finger Lakes. Locally, we explored some of the excellent small museums (esp. liked Geneva's Historical Society), hiked the Watkins Glen gorge trail and explored the Montezuma bird refuge/park on nearby Lake Cayuga. Wine-tasting at some of the Seneca Lake and nearby Keuka Lake wineries was fun. Enjoyed day trips to both Niagara Falls (about 2 hours) and Corning Glass (1+ hour) Spent lots of time reading and relaxing on the dock and screened in porch (delightful) in the morning and after returning from our daily adventures. The cabin was well-equipped and cozy (no secrets). All in all, a great week for us and good friends who joined us. The owner was very accommodating and friendly in email and phone contacts prior to our arrival.
“A nice escape from the city”
I have been coming to our family cottage since before I can remember. Now, being an adult living in Washington, DC, I jump at every chance I can get to escape to this beautiful and relaxing location on Seneca Lake. The cottage is perfect for family gatherings or a vacation with friends/significant others and is located right in the heart of the Finger Lake's Wine Region.
“Relaxing Vacation in Beautiful Wine Country”
My boyfriend and I are avid visitors of the Seneca Lake region and were thrilled to find this adorable cabin available on the West side of the lake for a reasonable price. The owner was very helpful in providing information to all of our questions prior to booking and was flexible on dates--which was great because we were unable to stay a whole week. The cabin was bigger then we needed, but comfortably accomodates small or larger parties. We were grateful to be able to bring our yorkie, Lucie, and enjoyed sitting by the lake in the evening on the dock. The cabin was very comfortable and clean and provided everything we needed to be able to cook a few of our own meals. We were also in a good location to be able to visit all the wineries on the west side, and even travel to Geneva or Watkin's Glen for the day! I would definitely recommend this lodging for anyone who wants a clean, rustic, cabin feel with a great view!
“Best kept secret in the Finger Lakes!!”
Our family has been coming to this cabin for years. My son grew up at this cabin and we have so many memories with family and friends, plus our dogs!!! It is secluded with an absolutely beautiful view of seneca lake. The cabin is down to earth which makes you feel very comfortable. The yard is large enough for games and again our dogs and the private beach and dock is heaven!!! I wasn't sure if I wanted to write this review only because I want this "best kept secret" to stay a secret!
This was the first time we rented a house in the Finger Lakes and didn't know what to expect. It was a cute comfortable house, however, the lack of drinkable water was a problem. We were told to bring our own linens, yet every bed was made, so that was confusing. The only room that had walls up to the ceiling was the bathroom. Otherwise, there was very little privacy, since the walls were like cubicles at an office. It was fun for our first time, but we now look for a house that has private bedrooms and drinkable water.
Response from the owner While we have always tried to alert folks within the rental agreement to the fact that the water coming from the tap is filtered lake water (undrinkable), we have added a water cooler to the property this year (2011) to ease this burden - we know how inconvenient this can be and have always tried to keep plenty of jugs of clean water available! Indoors, the cabin does have a very open feel - the bathroom has a closed ceiling but the remaining rooms allow for looking up towards the log ceiling and the skylights above the dining room. Best, Colleen
“Honeymoon on Seneca Lake (2 weeks of paradise)”
Love, love, love this little oasis of calm on Seneca Lake. Our initial stay was for our 2 week honeymoon and we could not have been more pleased with the accommodations, Colleen and Suzanne, the location or the peace and quiet! The kitchen is nicely outfitted, the back porch is an excellent evening spot, the deck is large and inviting - I could go on and on! Suffice it to say that we enjoyed ourselves so much that we've been back 3 more times! And will keep coming back as long as they will have us!
