Property 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 is a king-sized bed upstairs and four twin-sized beds in the upstairs bedrooms.

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.
