A wonderful vacation!
A wonderful vacation!
I was fortunate to stay at the "Yellow Cottage" in Fair Haven, NY, recently with my parents through the Labor Day weekend. The cottage was very well kept, supplied and accommodating for me and my parents, who are both in their 70's. The view from the cottage and the waterfront itself, was breathtaking and enjoyable every night as we ate dinner from the patio and watched the beautiful sunsets. Truly perfect:) We also had room when my sister and 2 great nieces spent an evening with us and enjoyed swimming and fishing whenever we felt like going down to the water. Thank you Lynn, for your assistance and correspondence while there and in getting us there. I hope we can come back your way again soon and appreciate all your kindness & hospitality extended. Til the next time:)!! The Crabtree Family

Our time here was wonderful. The cottage was very suited to our needs. It is very peaceful and beautiful. the kitchen had ample supply of equipment for cooking. The annual flowers really give The Cottage that At Home feel. The screened in porch was used for many of meals and a couple of mean games of Yatzee. The Bay was a major pull for our activities; swimming, fishing, crayfish finding, the sounds of the water on the rocks and teh SUNSETS oo oo oo. All the birds in this area were wonderful. With in walking distance for all to the Fair Haven State Park with beach walking trails, boats rentals, fishing and general nature loving. The town of Fair Haven wasvery quaint and fun. Major shopping is easily within a 30-45 minute drive and the countryside scenery is just wonderful. I wish I drank wine with all of the gorgeous vineyards everywhere.

Dear Lynn, The weekend end was Perfect and My parents were thrilled; we picked the perfect spot for their 25th anniversary get-away. The cottage is well-kept and very cozy, and the choice of gathering areas: screen porch, living room, or water-side patio really contribute to enjoying all the different changes in the day and weather - just what a water-front cottage should be. Again, Thank you so much for everything. I'll be happy to recommend the Little Yellow Cottage to others. Warm Regards - Linda Lansing & Family

Our family recently enjoyed a lovely July week at The Yellow Cottage. Although small, this cottage is pleasantly cozy and comfortable. We especially enjoyed meals on the enclosed porch, restful days sitting on the inviting lakeside grass, and most of all the outstanding sunsets. The bay water temperature was in the low 70's which was great for swimming and boating. FairHaven State Park is within walking distance and offers a variety of outing possibilities. If you like quiet, restful vacation spots, you will enjoy The Yellow Cottage.

Owner response: Thank you for the positive comments- hope you will return to the "Yellow Cottage' again. The week going into Labor Day weekend is avaialable and I would rent the week through Monday of Labor Day for a reduced rate if you are interested. The fall is very beautiful in Fair Haven - who knows it may be better than our wet summer! Thanks again. Lynn
We stayed at the Yellow Cottage in July and found it very enjoyable. The property is right on the bay with a spectacular view and an expansive lawn in front of the cottage. We definitely would stay here again.
