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.

The perfect getaway for a long weekend
We had an amazing time during our stay. The location was perfect and relaxing. Will definitely stay here again.
There was so much charm to this cottage and was everything I had hoped for. It is a simple home with so much privacy. The views of the lake waking up every morning were gorgeous. I highly recommend this.
EXACTLY as advertised in every wonderful way!
Four friends and I turned 50 this year and reunited from all over the country (and one from Canada) for a fishing trip. I was put in charge of finding the place and chose the Red Creek Cottage for it's waterfront lawn, tranquil and private setting, charm and overall vibe. I've been enjoying my friends' praises ever since. The place is not fancy but VERY clean and VERY comfortable (including the beds, sitting areas, layout and outside area). The owners simply could not have been better to deal with and the place itself makes you feel at home within a few minutes. It was fantastic to have a well stocked kitchen, games, towels, kayaks, firewood, and everything else we needed other than food and drinks. I can't say enough about the location, the charm of the place and the great outdoor space. We threw the ball on the lawn during the day, sat by the fire pit through sunsets and played board games at the table each night. We fished a few days and explored Watkins Glen (an easy 15-20 minute drive) too. Close enough to all we needed but far enough to make us feel like we were getting away from it all. The locals are very nice and there are a lot of things to do (particularly adults) in the area with beautiful wineries and breweries, but the cottage would have sufficed if we had stayed home during the day. If you think this place looks like what you are looking for, it is! It's exactly as advertised and was an absolute delight.
Great View & Perfect Getaway
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.
Didn't want to leave
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
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.
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.
