"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 girlfriend and I stayed at Tom and Christine's place for a week. It's a reasonably convenient place to stay for a Finger Lakes adventure. We spent our time touring wineries on other lakes and going back and forth between Ithaca. Ithaca, as well as the areas we visited for wineries, were about an hours drive. I'm sure there are closer wineries as well, but the big clusters are on other lakes.
The place itself is 4 small bedrooms. It's cozy and had everything we needed to cook, enjoy the lake front, etc. We particularly liked the bonfire pit being directly in front of the water, great for roasting marshmallows, bundled up, looking as the waves roll in and out.
The only thing that gave me pause with the reservation was that electronic payments weren't setup. I was really uncomfortable sending a check for the rental amount and the security deposit, but took a leap and did so. Received a check back for the security deposit, so my worries were allayed, but still, shouldn't be a big issue to setup safer payments through this site or airbnb.
That said, great hosts, cozy place, lots of bedrooms, and right on the lake. Hard to beat it for the off-season price :)"

"Girlfriends and I stayed at Claire Vue for a weekend. Friday evening was wonderful weather and we were able to get gorgeous photos of the sunset. Unfortunately, the rest of the weekend was constant rain but the house has all you need to relax (beautiful views and a lot of seating and space) and keep occupied (games and movies) indoors. The large porch has a covered portion so several of us were able to still listen to the soothing sound of the small creek bed and falling rain while enjoying coffee outside."

"This is an excellent and beautiful home! My family was out for my daughter's graduation from law school at Syracuse Univ. We had 8 adults and 2 kids ages 10 and 11. The home is so spacious that you can still find a quiet spot to nap, read or whatever. The pool table was a big hit among all, as well as playing bocce ball on the huge back lawn. We also took the kids out in the kayaks. The expansive deck was great for having your morning coffee or an evening cocktail. Also, my wife and I met the owner who was very nice, and he reminded us who to call if we needed anything (which we did not) during our stay. A short side note, I didn't inform my family about the house or show any pictures. Needless to say, they were all amazed and extremely pleased with my selection!"
