Where do I begin? Firstly, getting from the parking area down to the house and the house down to the water requires the use of many, many stairs. The stairs and the railings have obviously been constructed (or reconstructed) by the owner and they are quite precarious. We had small children with us and they made us very nervous. If you have small children and/or elderly people with you, we would not recommend this property. Secondly, it is clear that much work on the interior of the property has also been done by the owner himself. Many projects appear to be half finished or shoddily constructed. The waterfall which is advertised on this website as being "new" is only half finished and full of stagnant water. Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, the house runs on a single a/c unit. It is three levels so while the basement level (one of the sleeping areas - I'll get to that in a moment) was frigid and the main level freezing, the upstairs was uncomfortably warm. I will say that searching for a house suitable for 10 adults, we found the options in the Finger Lakes to be limited. However, this property is not ideal for five adult couples. In order for all of the couples to get a double or queen sized bed one couple had to sleep in the basement on an old pullout couch. The basement is cold and uncomfortably damp. They seem to be aware of the problem because there is a dehumidifier in the basement -- but it clearly isn't doing enough to solve the problem. Bottom-line, for the amount we paid, we were disappointed by the accommodations and amenities offered by this property.
