Romulus cottage description

Guests tell me the photos don't do the cottage and property justice. Read our reviews. Very private. Clean. Lots of space. Drive down to the beach. We have a launching area on the property. The East side of Seneca Lake has lots of sun and beautiful sunsets. Dock and new deck. Close to wineries, college campuses, and Sampson State Park. Ten miles from Geneva for shopping, movies, and food. Two Five Star restaurants within 15 miles. We completed the renovation of this cottage six years ago and several of our visitors come back every year. One bedroom with two double beds and a large living room with two pull out couches can sleep 6. New kitchen appliances, cupboards, air conditioning, and microwave. We added a pellet stove for visits in the early spring or late fall for wine tours, an aluminum boat for fishing, a canoe and kayak for sunsets on the lake. For further information, call or e-mail me. It is a lovely place to relax.


Enjoy the quiet - pets welcome.: This is our sixth year renting our renovated cottage. Already visitors and their pets from the last five summers have made reservations for this coming summer. Everyone enjoyed swimming in the lake, laying on the dock, visiting the wineries (we have three within 7 miles) and local restaurants. Others have ventured to Ithaca, Rochester, and Canandaigua to visit museums, gourmet restaurants, and historic sites. The bedroom is above the lake so when you wake up in the morning, you feel like you are on a boat, overlooking the lake. The kitchen and dining area are on the bottom floor and look right out onto the water. There are many places to walk including a two mile hike up to Sampson State Park.

If you need to get away from the stress of your life, this is the place.

Enjoy the Lake: This is not for you IF you want a high stress vacation. See the herons land on the dock each evening and the ducklings come by each morning. The waves will rock you to sleep. Swim and kayak during the day. Take out the rowboat to fish. Have beach fires at night and visit our many wonderful wineries and restaurants nearby. This is truly the country and as our friend Simon always says, 'They aren't building any more lakes.'

      Other Amenities

          • You can drive down on the beach to unload. Then drive around the side to park (off street). Very close and works well for older adults who have trouble walking distances. We have a two person aluminum canoe, an aluminum fishing boat and a one person kayak which works well on the lake. Paddle together in the canoe or take the kayak and hook an inner tube to the back and take your spouse for a ride. We do have full cell phone service and provide a CD player, radio, DVD player and TV along with lots of movies available for nightly showings. We do not have cable TV or internet service. We believe a low tech vacation helps our guests relax, forget about work, enjoy the lake, watch the campfire, talk, and/or read. Nightly sunsets is one of the best ways to relax and enjoy nature....moreless
