"The cabin was nice and fairly new, we had a great time. Excellent climate control, everything that you need as far as kitchen equipment and supplies. Not a huge cabin and not much closet space, but mostly adequate. An excellent owner, and they will make sure that everything is in order for you.
A couple nice places to boat to close by, be sure to hit the Switzerland on Sunday afternoon for an outside band on the deck with drinks and appetizers. It's directly across and slightly right, look for the green umbrellas. To the right of your dock and down by the point, look across for the Lakeside, nice outdoor dining and good food with a band playing.
A couple oh by the ways, the hot tub is 165 steps down the hill, the dock at least another 165. The picture kinda leads you to believe that its next to the cabin, this would be an issue if you were older. This is no cheezy hot tub, but a really nice, large tub with a lot of jets in a gazebo.
There is no place to park bigger than a 16' boat trailer and it's on a narrow dead end street with no turn around, plan to park at the State Park and leave your trailer ($7), a 6 mile boat ride back. Penn Yan has a free launch but $5 to park and its 11 miles away. 5 miles away is another launch, but $25 and they have to launch it for you.
This cabin has a narrow driveway and semi-difficult to maneuver, don't plan to take your boat to the cabin to unload, it may not be possible. Bring lots of boat fenders for the guest dock, the lake is rough on the weekends and the paint on my boat got hammered.
The cabin livingroom is pretty small, probably 7' x the width of the cabin with a really small TV on cable. The diningroom table is missing, the picnic table is in the eating area which is an enclosed porch but nice. You'll not find the fan control in the living room, its behind the china closet. Lighting is really bad, especially in the dining area and master bedroom. The exercise equipment in the ad does not exist, but hey, you're on vacation. A better description of the cabin is a 2 level + loft, not 3 stories as the ad says. I must say that everything was clean and well kept.
The closest gas station is about 6 miles away by the State Park, they only accept cash. Penn Yan is 11 miles away and the closest place for supplies.
Over all, I don't regret our decision to stay there and we had a great time. Plan to spend your nice evenings at the dock, in the lower yard around the fire pit, or soaking in the hot tub."
