                            I rented this home with my fiance and 3 other couples, as we were up in NY for a wedding. I was absolutely thrilled with how spacious this home was for 8 adults. It was very clean, and completely stocked with linens and towel. Dealing with the owners, Deborah specifically, was so easy. She was very accessible, answered all my questions and left a wonderful guide for us to use while staying in Geneva. The views from this house, mainly the master bedroom and living room, are the most beautiful I've ever witnessed. I woke up for the sunrise one morning and was blown away. The private dock was wonderful and we used the deck to grill and dine one evening. I would absolutely recommend staying here, and if we ever return to Seneca Lake, I'd rent here again.

                            The covered deck are is great, esp when a bit rainy. The lake side area is very nice and how nice to be so close to Geneva. There is plenty of space in the house. The wifi is very good, thou you might want to mention that cell service is spotty at best, and you may have to be on the deck or up by the train tracks to catch a signal. But it's for VACATION, and not being on the phone can be a good thing. However, while this property is owned by the current owners, do bear in mind that I found it way overpriced. The one toilet seat was cracked and they simply repaired it with duct tape---when my sister called the owners she was asked "if this was a problem". All they would have had to do was to leave a sign that said they knew about the repair but hadn't finished the replacement before we arrived; when would be a good time to come to replace the seat." That would have been fine with us. Then we learned that they requested us not to flush used toilet tissue due to their super duper new septic pump. I grew up in the country & understand issues with septic systems. BUT REALLY??? to expect people to toss USED t.p. into the trash, then let it bake away in summer sun in the trash receptacle outside? Oh, their trash collectors must love stopping at this address!!!!! Repairs and work around the house were incomplete--this happens, but they had a strong DIY look to it and not by a great handy person. Baseboards not matching up at seams; tile in bathroom not grouted completely in some areas, electrical plugs not firmly seated so they push inwards when plugging in equipment, etc. Very amateur. And if that kitchen was "recently updated" I'll be eating my hat soon. While this cottage photographs nicely it gives a somewhat false impression of being of higher quality of work. The price charged seems very inflated except for the location. The property is on the market- let's hope the next owner, if they continue renting it, bring it up to the standard the price implies. My sister and cousins may or may not disagree with my review. But this is my review of the days I stayed here.

                            Owner response: Depending on your cell phone service provider, coverage will vary. Verizon is best, Sprint is worst. We lived here year round for 13 yrs with service with AT&T and managed just fine. We made a run just prior to this rental to obtain a replacement toilet seat and came back with the wrong shape. My wife and I both responded promptly to this request to replace it - I specifically offered to replace it within 24 hrs. It got replaced. As with all rentals, we request that paper and feminine products not be put in the toilets. We had a septic system upgraded at great expense, and the system we had installed is becoming the standard for installation at lakefront property in this region to guarantee no contamination enters the beautiful Finger Lakes. Our family of four, with frequent visitors over the year, managed to treat the system with this kind of care quite effortlessly. Having said that, it is my understanding that disposing paper in the toilets, particularly sparingly, is just fine. However, we have chosen to err on the side of caution as we have paid to have a pump replaced in the system once due to feminine products accumulating in the system and disabling/burning out the pump. We do not want our renters to ever need to deal with this inconvenience so therefore we make the recommendations we do. We are completing our second year of renting this home weekly during the summer and for weekends during the fall. We have never received these complaints before and in fact, we routinely hear that renters were "delighted" with their stay and enjoyed our "lovely home" very much. We regret that this individual did not and appreciate her acknowledging that her sister and cousins may not have agreed with her review. As always, we will do whatever we can to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

                            This was our first lake house rental and our first VRBO rental which made us a little nervous. We're a family of five, all adults. The moment we walked in, we were thrilled! The house was clean and spacious with plenty of room for all of us. The cleaning lady left us fresh picked vegetables and went on-and-on apologizing that the sheets had some wrinkles in them. Seriously?, New Yorker's iron their sheets? Well, us Texan's are not so picky and we found the beds and sheets very comfortable. The deck was great and, although there was a nice stove, we grilled almost everything. Morning views were beautiful and deck was nice and shady all day long. Families with small children will find a nice swing set. Not really a sandy swimming beach but great for evening fires. Very nice dock with large sitting area. We tried, unsuccessfully, to catch fish from the dock - well they call it fishing, not catching for a reason. I also cannot under-emphasize the thoughtfully prepared guide with menus, attractions, reviews, and household instructions. The pictures posted are accurate but it looks much better when you are there. If we ever get back this way, this place is the only place we'd consider. It's the owners first summer to rent and they have gone all out to make sure the stay is nice. Responsive to maintenance needs too although the only thing needed was replacing the dryer. It got pretty warm a couple of days we were there and the house is comfortably air conditioned with window/wall units. It's not a hotel so don't forget bar soap, shampoo, and other things like that but there's a Wal-Mart and Wegmans Grocery nearby. Very close to a very friendly marina which rents boats which you can dock at the house. Winery is literally right across the street. We were first a little concerned about a railroad track which runs pretty close by but the train was quiet, short, and only came by at around 7 & 10 each night. The property was formerly the full time residence of the owners and their pride of ownership is quite evident. Finally, our deposit was promptly returned in full. Thank you, Mark & Deborah, for a vacation we'll never forget. Hope we get back real soon
