"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!"

"This was just a delightful place to stay. I have stayed at several VRBO properties in the past and this one is tops! The house has everything you could ever think of. It is designed for people of all ages. Our dog loved the pond and the area hiking in the gorges. The house was fully stocked and well labeled so any questions you had were immediately answered. Sam was very courteous and easy to deal with. Great place to sit outside, relax and enjoy all the nature around you. We have already discussed coming back in the fall."

"We rented this home for our son's graduation from Cornell University, It was the perfect setting to celebrate this special event with our family! The views were absolutely gorgeous and the home is spacious and beautiful. It truly felt like "home". The location was very convenient to Cornell as well as near shopping and restaurants. We could not have asked for a better venue to spend the graduation week and highly recommend it."

"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.
