Welcome to Blackbird Cottage! On a quiet dead-end street, Blackbird Cottage is really 2 cozy bungalows for the price of one. This is a perfect cottage for a couple or a group of up to four looking to relax on Seneca Lake. The main cottage offers 2 bedrooms (1 queen bedroom, 1 full bedroom, linens provided) plus a full bath (tub with shower, four towels provided), fully outfitted kitchen including cooking spices and all pots/pans you will ever need, lovely lake-view dining area with panoramic views, and comfortable living room for relaxing and watching cable TV or your favorite movies. At beach level, our newly renovated lakeside cabana (no sleeping facilities) is surrounded by decking and lounge chairs, just a few steps from your own boat dock and beach, and is outfitted with mini-fridge, bar, blender and comfy furniture giving you a wonderful place to relax at the end of a day on the lake. There is a small fire pit on the beach front as well for evening fires. Between the two buildings is a lovely landscaped patio with a patio set, lounge chairs, gas grill (propane included!), shade trees and of course lake view. It doesn't get better than than this! The cottage ceilings are fairly low due to the fact it was originally built in the 1950's. We are also on a quiet dead-end street with close neighbors along the lake who enjoy the relaxing nature of the area. We can accommodate up to four guests during your stay under our renter's permit.
Whether visiting the area for our wonderful wineries, getaway, romantic weekend, or fishing our world-famous lake trout, you will love Blackbird Cottage on Seneca Lake!
We just bought a two person canoe for the 2016 season which is located under the lower deck. Please use at your own risk and use responsibly. Great for fishing and sunsets! Life jackets are provided as well.
Washer/Dryer in the basement for use.
Blackbird Cottage is a centrally located getaway in Dresden, New York, at the intersection of Routes 14 and 54 and near many of the region's award-winning wineries on the Seneca and Keuka Lake Wine Trails.

We are 6 miles from groceries, a local butcher, gas, restaurants, and movie theaters. 8 miles from a state boat launch and boat rentals. A public playground, beach and tennis courts are 1 mile from the cottage. On a rainy day, enjoy the cottage's cozy living room outfitted with a Vizio 32-Inch HDTV as well as a selection of books and magazines ... or play board games or cards at the dining table as you enjoy the lake view. An auxiliary sound system is in the living room so bring your ipod with!
Our dock can hold a small to medium sized boat. 3 cleats installed. 3ft depth off the end with a sandy bottom so please keep that in mind while swimming. No diving, of course. Boat lift is under repair at the moment so please inquire if that is needed for your stay.
