  • Five Stars in Every Respect !

    "Our stay couldn’t have been better. The cottage is right on the lake front – a lovely lawn, beach and dock are right out the door. It's located in a beautiful park-like area, well-away from the highway, down a private road leading into a private association. Behind the cottage is a very large area of grass, a swing set, tennis courts, basketball court and plenty of protected space for kids to play. It provides a very private feel overall. The neighbors were very friendly and we never had a sense of anyone being too close. The great front porch added greatly to making the week a special treat. With large windows on three sides, it opens up the entire lake front experience. A long table for dining at one end and plenty of wicker chairs, sofa, and rockers, it provided plenty of room for folks to be alone with a book or gather to chat – or to simply sit and enjoy the view. On the couple times we had a bit of rain, it was especially nice to still sit and enjoy the outdoors. Behind the front porch is a large living room with two large leather sofas. With the beautiful porch we didn’t spend much time in the living room, but it did provide another space for anyone who wanted to have a bit of private space. The “beach deck,” the porch, the living room, and the lawn were separate areas where folks could be alone, gather in couples or small groups, and never feel that they were all crowded together. Behind the living room was a bathroom with a large shower – just fine. And then the kitchen. Wow! We’ve rented several VRBO houses, and we’ve never come across such a fully stocked and equipped kitchen. At least a double set of dishes plus many bowls and platters, glasses, cups, mugs, and wine glasses never had anyone short. Cutlery, every kitchen utensil, gadget and appliance and a new, very large fridge – and a second fridge in the garage. (No need to stuff supplies, buy ice for coolers, or constantly re-stock drinks.) Plenty of room in the large kitchen with table and room-wide counter for food prep.) A new washer and dryer was a great help for beach towels and a mid-week wash. Our two granddaughters commandeered the lovely sleeping porch. A large bedroom with a comfortable queen bed, another double and a back bedroom with two doubles all provided plenty of sleep space. The garage was a plus with plenty of room to store games, bikes, etc. The cottage exceeded our expectations in every respect. And thanks to the thoughtful owners who made our stay such a delight."

  • Great Family Holiday

    "We have been going to this house for the past 4 years to attend the NASCAR Race. There are 6 of us who stay. My husband and myself along with our daughter, son in law and grandchildren who are now 5 & 7 (they were 1 & 3 when we first rented). We have already booked again for next year as it is a perfect retreat for us. The house is homey and the front porch with the view is beyond words. There is a gate on the front porch so you don't have to worry about young children on the stairs. The bedrooms are a good size with comfy beds for a good nights sleep. Every night we would walk down to the marina with the kids and feed the ducks. The location is great for a walk downtown, a wine tour or a hike at the Falls. Our grandchildren love it there and look forward to the holiday every year. There are lots of toys and games for the kids to play. Then once they are in bed it is nice to sit on the front porch with a glass of wine. We would highly recommend this location for anyone of any age."

  • Comfortable and Relaxing

    "We were here over Columbus Day Weekend and had a wonderful time. The house was easy to move around in and the views of the lake were great. Having tea at the gazebo for beautiful sunrises and sitting around the fire pit at night watching a beautiful "orange" moon rise over the lake was incredible. Close enough to downtown Penn Yan to enjoy the local restaurants and centrally located to imbibe a little/a lot upon the many vineyards. Even had time to play a round of golf at the beautiful Lakeside course."

  • We've Been Spoiled!

    "It is usually hard to have your vacation end, but leaving Casa Bella was particularly hard. Doris and Paul have created a little "bit of heaven" - right here in the Finger Lakes! We immediately felt at home - and pampered in all the indulgent touches! There are so many wonderful spots to have a cup of coffee - or glass of wine - and of course soak in the beautiful views of the lake! The Finger Lakes have been a favorite of our for many years, and even though Casa Bella is nestled in a great location for getting to places - we spent far more of our time "home" then we have on any vacation there! There was plenty of space and privacy for a house of 6 - and yet such a wonderful setting to spend time as a family! We loved the pictures online but the house was even better in person - everything was spotless - and landscaped just beautifully! Doris and Paul were great in keeping in touch with us throughout the whole process - we couldn't have asked for more. We can't wait to come back! Melissa & Steve"
