Dundee cottage description
Google Red Creek Cottage or scroll down for link.
Red Creek Cottage is a three-bedroom, two-story cottage on the western shore of Seneca Lake, 13 miles north of Watkins Glen, 22 miles south of Geneva, and 13 miles east of Penn Yan (on neighboring Keuka Lake). We are located right on Seneca Lake, set back about 50 feet from the water, with lake frontage of 200 feet, a stream with a drawbridge, and a few acres of woods behind us.
With the lake on one side and the woods on the other, you will enjoy peace and quiet and the feeling of being surrounded by nature. Our cottage is the perfect retreat where you can truly relax with family and friends.
Sit back with a book or a glass of wine from one of the many wineries down the road in the sunny front yard or in the shade of our mature trees (a large willow, maples, firs, birches, a redbud and others). We have a large shale beach (shale is smooth flat rocks of various sizes), a lot of shallow water for wading and swimming; a fire pit, outdoor dining table with umbrella seating 6, large picnic table seating 8, many lounge chairs, gas grill, 2 canoes, a badminton and volleyball set, fishing gear, life jackets, and other recreational equipment.
If you are concerned about mosquitoes, rest assured that there are usually no mosquitoes because of the breeze and the purple martins.
This is a classic, pine-paneled cottage, recently renovated and fully winterized and insulated with electric heat. Enjoy the stunning view from the front lawn or from the living room or dining room table through the screened picture windows that line the entire front of the cottage. At night in bed listen to the waves lapping at the shore.
Microwave, coffee-maker, toaster, blender, pots and pans, service for 8, linens, blankets, pillows, towels and washcloths. You can enjoy a selection of cards, toys, games, and board games for all ages, a library of reading material, and a large library of family-friendly DVD's. We provide baby equipment including a pack-n-play, booster seat, and baby/toddler cups and bowls. There is a washer and dryer, a phone (local calls only), alarm clocks, a hair dryer, toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, tissues, dish soap, sponges, firewood, starter sticks, first aid kit, and information on local attractions, maps and directions.
In addition to a king-sized bed in the downstairs bedroom, there are six twin-sized beds in the upstairs bedrooms that can be converted to two king-size beds and two twins.
While we welcome and have made special accommodations for families with young children, Red Creek Cottage is also very comfortable and attractive for people of any age - retired couples, singles, couples with no children, or small groups of friends. It is always clean, well-equipped, and inviting, perfect for your next vacation, weekend get-away, or rendezvous with friends.
Please see our web site for more information and additional photos.

We lucked out in that it wasn`t a wintry weekend...the owners aptly described the steep curvy driveway....thought they were exaggerating...not at all...but well worth it...very well kept cozy cottage, stocked with everything...our grandson loved the draw bridges to gain access to cottage...not far from many things to do...Watkins Glen, winiries, trails to hike, kayaking in season....so peaceful on Seneca Lake this time of year...and lots to do at the cottage...movies,games, skipping the nice flat shale rocks across the lake...awakening to lovely sunrises...very nice

We loved the house and property, especially the fire pit by the lake on an almost full moon evening. The drive down the hill can be rather challenging, however we managed just fine. Overall a wonderful stay!

We enjoyed a 4 day weekend of hiking by day and amateur astronomy at night. While trees and lakeshore lights were a distraction, a lack of nearby large cities made the milky way visible each night. The property is honestly described, and was clean, well stocked, and well maintained. Owners included helpful notes on how to best make use of the property and find needed items. There was even a bound and well-organized notebook with tons of info on local attractions and dining. Overall, the atmosphere makes you fell like a welcome guest of the owners.

Six female family members shared this cottage for an enjoyable 3 night stay. Cottage was perfect for us. It was very clean and the area very quiet. Keep in mind that this is a somewhat older cottage in a semi wooded lakefront area. If you are looking for a modern new beach type house, this is not for you. But the house is comfortable and gave us a space to gather together and relax, something we couldn't get from hotel rooms. The drive down (and up) the road/driveway is a little scary at first, but doable. I would have been very hesitant to drive up or down with a trailer attached and not sure a big pick up truck or extra large vehicle would fit between the neighbors house. We had a minivan and didn't have a whole lot of room to spare. Would definately check with owners if you had a large vehicle before renting. The area is beautiful with lots to do, My only complaint is that there isn't enough time to enjoy all the area has to offer.

Adorable Cottage in an Amazing Location
Adorable Cottage in an Amazing Location
My friend and I rented Red Creek Cottage during the last weekend of Oct 2011. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The cottage is loaded with everything you can think of so all you need is your clothes and food! The road down to the cottage was definitely steep and winding but luckily no one else was staying around the cottage so the road was ours all the time. I did love that you have to cross the drawbridge to get to the cottage - adds to the charm of the place! We liked lounging around after a day of wine tasting, which was more comfortable than at a B&B. I would definitely stay here again when it's warmer so I can take advantage of the lake! Great place for quiet getaway and if you need a place to just chill out!

The cottage was very clean and cozy. I was impressed with how much thought the owners put into having everything you could need. You really only need to bring your food and clothing. The location is great for visiting wineries and is very close to Watkins Glen. But the best part for us was the large lake frontage. In an area where there are a lot of camps on top of each other, this one is totally private. It was a very relaxing place to stay. And the driveway sounds a lot worse than it is. We had no problem getting up and down it. My only complaint is the week flew by way too fast.

What a fabulous time!!
What a fabulous time!!
I almost hesitate to write this, because the more people that go to Red Creek Cottage, the less availability there is for us to return! Our family had an amazingly relaxing (but very fun!) week at the cottage. It was everything we had hoped for and more!!! Yes, the driveway is a little hairy, but, hey! We are here to write about it! :) Owners have an amazing binder with all of the info of things to do in the area--and their website offers a tremendous amount of info for pre-stay planning. (They are also VERY child friendly!!!!) Can't say enough about the entire experience!

A Charming Cottage
A Charming Cottage
Four long-time sorority sisters shared this darling cabin for several nights. The cottage is charming and cozy, well equipped and carefully updated. The access road is steep but not scary; it's a tight squeeze, however, between another cottage and the hill. We loved sitting out at the picnic table in the early evening, watching the mama duck and her ducklings, enjoying the quiet and beauty. If you sleep in the bedroom fronting the lake, you can hear the water lapping against the shore. Were treated to a dramatic lightning display one night. Watkins Glen State Park is magnificent! Also enjoyed the Corning Museum of Glass.
