Great cottage in a quiet location - but no kayak
Family of 4 (kids 9 & 12) rented in early Aug 2019. The surrounding neighborhood was very quiet during our stay, especially during the week. (Though when someone was at the small cottage next door, I could hear their conversation clearly since the properties are so close - so I guess level of quiet may depend on who else is there that week). The cottage was clean & bright. The only frustration was that a kayak is listed in the description and there are two pictures with a kayak - but there actually isn't a kayak available. The kitchen is clean but cookware is very basic. The kids loved swimming in the lake (with watershoes). A minor annoyance with the next door neighbor leaving on a bright white porch light (front & back) on 24/7. We like quiet so this was great for us, but you'll need to drive a bit to get to some of the more popular tourist areas (Watkins Glen, Ithaca, etc.) We swam quite a bit in the lake and had a fire on the 'beach' each night. Note that even though we rented through VRBO, the rental is managed by Finger Lakes Premier Properties, so the logistics of communications, payment, check-in, etc. were a little confusing because they each have their own processes. When I tried emailing both VRBO and Finger Lakes regarding the kayak situation, both emails were ignored.
Thank you for your feedback, Tony. We apologize for the miscommunication regarding the kayak. This home recently changed ownership and no longer provides watercraft. While this was removed from the amenities, it remained in the description and photos. This was an oversight on our end and we are sorry for the disappointment. We have since removed mention of the kayak and will be scheduling this home for updated photos. Unfortunately, messages sent us through VRBO are often stripped of booking and contact information. We recommend reaching out to us directly, either through our website or by phone with any issues during your stay. We're happy to hear that overall you enjoyed your vacation and we hope you'll return in the future!
Beautiful lakeside getaway
Clean, spacious home - right on the lake! We loved spending time on the deck and dock overlooking Seneca. A great spot for a nice weekend getaway.

September 2018 Stay
My only negative review is the SPIDERS, something definitely needs to be done to address this for future renters. Everything else was top notch! Beautiful cottage, great views and awesome neighbors! If spider situation is addressed will definitely rent this cottage again ext year!
Amy thank you for reviewing your stay with us. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay, minus the spiders. We appreciate the feedback as it helps us create positive experiences for all future guests. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to welcome you back to Seneca Lake soon!
