"My four friends and I stayed here this past weekend. The house was just right for our needs - comfortable, especially the living room which had a really comfy couch and recliner chair. It was too chilly to make use of the deck, but beautiful to look at - and must be really nice during warm weather. Bathrooms were very clean. Beds were comfortable. Trash had been taken out prior to our stay, so that wasn't an issue. There were some bees getting into one of the back bedrooms, and we couldn't figure out how. Luckily there was a can of bee/wasp spray which we made use of. I'd say we killed 10-12 over the weekend. The kitchen had everything we needed in terms of pots, pans, cutlery, utensils, etc. The light over the sink was out, which made it a bit dark in there when we were preparing food. BTW, wifi instructions are framed and on the wall in the living room. I'm not sure everyone would know right away to look on the wall for this information. The location is definitely good for places in the area to visit."

"The description of this home and property is not exaggerated. It was very comfortable for 6 adults and an infant and could have accommodated more people easily. Each family had their own full bathroom, which made it nice. We had plenty of room to entertain local family members who visited us. The kids were especially thrilled with the hot tub, but the adults got their share of enjoyment out of it, too. Everything we needed was provided in this lovely home, but Watkins Glen was only 10 minutes away if we wanted anything. The new Grist Iron Brewery opened almost across the street on Route 414 and having that so close was a bonus. Of course wineries abound in the area, too. Guests should be aware that you do have to travel about 1/4 mile down a gravel road to get to the home, so vehicles with good ground clearance are the best to use while staying at the house. Regular vehicles can work ok as long as you go very slowly over the speed bump.
There was plenty of room both indoors and out with a huge private lot, deck and a porch. A boat launch was mentioned as an amenity, but you would need to get more info about that from the owner. We didn't find anything usable for that purpose, but we didn't have a boat, either.
The AC was very welcome since we were there during a hot weather week. Nights cooled down to comfortable temperatures, so breakfast on the porch was very pleasant. There were great lake views from one of the upstairs bedrooms and peek-a-boo views between the trees from the lower levels. However, the sunset views were spectacular.
The only downside was the extra fee we had to pay for cleaning. Not sure why that wasn't included in the price.
I would highly recommend this home for a wonderful Finger Lakes vacation."
