About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 8)

Google Red Creek Cottage or scroll down for link.

Enjoy three seasons of beauty and relaxations, combined with numerous local activities!

Available Spring, Summer and Fall.

Red Creek Cottage is a three-bedroom, two-story cottage on the western shore of Seneca Lake, 13 miles north of Watkins Glen, 22 miles south of Geneva, and 13 miles east of Penn Yan (on neighboring Keuka Lake). We are located right on Seneca Lake, set back about 50 feet from the water, with lake frontage of 200 feet, a stream with a drawbridge, and a few acres of woods behind us.

With the lake on one side and the woods on the other, you will enjoy peace and quiet and the feeling of being surrounded by nature. Our cottage is the perfect retreat where you can truly relax with family and friends.

Sit back with a book or a glass of wine from one of the many wineries down the road in the sunny front yard or in the shade of our mature trees (a large willow, maples, firs, birches, a redbud and others). We have a large shale beach (shale is smooth flat rocks of various sizes), a lot of shallow water for wading and swimming; a fire pit, outdoor dining table with umbrella seating 6, large picnic table seating 8, many lounge chairs, gas grill, 2 canoes, a badminton and volleyball set, fishing gear, life jackets, and other recreational equipment.

If you are concerned about mosquitoes, rest assured that there are usually no mosquitoes because of the breeze and the purple martins.

This is a classic, pine-paneled cottage, recently renovated and fully winterized and insulated with electric heat. Enjoy the stunning view from the front lawn or from the living room or dining room table through the screened picture windows that line the entire front of the cottage. At night in bed listen to the waves lapping at the shore.

Microwave, coffee-maker, toaster, blender, pots and pans, service for 8, linens, blankets, pillows, towels and washcloths. You can enjoy a selection of cards, toys, games, and board games for all ages, a library of reading material, and a large library of family-friendly DVD's. We provide baby equipment including a pack-n-play, booster seat, and baby/toddler cups and bowls. There is a washer and dryer, a phone (local calls only), alarm clocks, a hair dryer, toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, tissues, dish soap, sponges, firewood, starter sticks, first aid kit, and information on local attractions, maps and directions.

In addition to a king-sized bed in the downstairs bedroom, there is a king-sized bed upstairs and four twin-sized beds in the upstairs bedrooms.

While we welcome and have made special accommodations for families with young children, Red Creek Cottage is also very comfortable and attractive for people of any age - retired couples, singles, couples with no children, or small groups of friends. It is always clean, well-equipped, and inviting, perfect for your next vacation, weekend get-away, or rendezvous with friends.

Please see our web site for more information and additional photos.

A magical place

  • 5 of 5

We lucked out in that it wasn`t a wintry weekend...the owners aptly described the steep curvy driveway....thought they were exaggerating...not at all...but well worth it...very well kept cozy cottage, stocked with everything...our grandson loved the draw bridges to gain access to cottage...not far from many things to do...Watkins Glen, winiries, trails to hike, kayaking in peaceful on Seneca Lake this time of year...and lots to do at the cottage...movies,games, skipping the nice flat shale rocks across the lake...awakening to lovely sunrises...very nice

Great View & Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful cottage right on the waters edge. It has a firepit and tables outside which we utilized since it was unseasonably warm the weekend we stayed. I would definitely recommend . The beds are comfy, the kitchen was well stocked and the view is mesmerizing.

My husband and I stayed here for 5 days and was one of our best vacations. We loved the serenity a d there are so many things to do in the area. The cottage was immaculate and the owners have every amenity you could think of. We would rent this vacation home again in a heartbeat.

Charming cottage on beautiful Seneca Lake

  • 4 of 5

Lovely location and beautiful lake front property. We were 6 adults and managed just fine even with the 1 shower/bathroom. Everything you need for cooking or grilling or baking is right there. Had fun rowing on the lake, too. Toys and games for all ages are available in the cottage and lots of places to visit, hike or tour in the area. Owners provided detailed information. NOTE: Be careful on the access road, it's quite steep and gravel can get slippery.

Red Creek Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and property, especially the fire pit by the lake on an almost full moon evening. The drive down the hill can be rather challenging, however we managed just fine. Overall a wonderful stay!

Father-Son Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a 4 day weekend of hiking by day and amateur astronomy at night. While trees and lakeshore lights were a distraction, a lack of nearby large cities made the milky way visible each night. The property is honestly described, and was clean, well stocked, and well maintained. Owners included helpful notes on how to best make use of the property and find needed items. There was even a bound and well-organized notebook with tons of info on local attractions and dining. Overall, the atmosphere makes you fell like a welcome guest of the owners.

Wine tasting: 15 vineyards lie along the western shore of Seneca Lake within 15 miles north and south of the cottage, with many more a short drive away on the eastern shore of Seneca or 13 miles to the west on Keuka Lake. 9 vineyards are eight miles or less from the cottage.
