"Just can't say enough about how great this place was for my husband and myself and our dog. Very comfortable bed and furniture-great layout in kitchen and best stocked kitchen I've ever seen in all our yrs of renting on VRBO. Fall colors were gorgeous and it was perfect location for us to go exploring Ithaca, and surrounding area where I grew up. Wine tasting on Cayuga and Seneca lake was lots of fun and dog friendly. At the end of the day great to relax with a glass of wine on the patio and watch the sun go down. Oh, and owner made special accommodation for my limited mobility!"

"This beautiful lake home is brand new and furnished with top end amenities including leather reclining sofa and reclining chairs. The bedroom has beautiful dark cherry furniture... And it has the most well appointed kitchen we've ever seen in a rental...A real luxury. The house is spotless, I have never stayed in such an immaculately kept home.
The location is private and peaceful with mesmerizing lake views, yet close to Ithaca and Cornell.
We highly recommend this property and cannot wait to return.

"I had to book this house for a retreat for 24 hours for 30-ish college students. It turned out to be perfect for what we needed! Christine left out instructions for how to maintain the house when we left, and was kind enough to keep pamphlets about the surrounding area in the kitchen. It is a very quaint house with excellent space for group discussions, and has beautiful art on the walls too! Backyard is also perfect for outdoor activities, and the house is only 3 miles from a picturesque park for photos. It was a great weekend!"

"My wife and I were married in Geneva a few weeks ago and I rented the Windgarth House for my family for the wedding weekend. I shopped around for a couple of weeks and felt fairly confident that this house would be excellent value for money, and we were not disappointed! Between the amount of space you get, the comfort of the house, its prime location, and the stunning lakefront view/dock, it doesn't get any better than this for the very reasonable price. We especially appreciated the division of the house into upstairs and downstairs "apartments." My sister, brother-in-law and their three kids were able to have their own space downstairs, with a bathroom, bedroom, pullout sofa, playroom, fully stocked kitchen, dining room table, etc.
The owners of this house are also very responsive and flexible. As soon as I booked the house, Mariette was in touch to confirm the booking, provide additional details, answer any questions, etc. Also, when I forgot to pay our balance and deposit for the house prior to the deadline (unfortunately some things fall through the cracks when you're planning a wedding!), Mariette was extremely accommodating, allowing me to drop off the payments at her office in Ithaca the day we checked in. I would definitely book this house again. Thanks again, Mariette and Laurie!"
