Property description


Enjoy the Finger Lakes Region and beautiful Seneca Lake from this lovely cottage located eight miles south of Geneva on the east shore. We are truly one of the finest Finger Lakes vacation rentals.

We have great swimming, boating, fishing, water sports, sun, and absolutely gorgeous sunsets, all on lovely private lake frontage. We are ideally located in the heart of New York State's Finger Lakes, just minutes away from the best Finger Lake's attractions, restaurants, and wineries. We now have complementary wine tasting vouchers for all of our over 21 guests !

Our cottage has kitchen with glass-top stove, refrigerator and microwave; bath with shower; living room with cable HDTV, internet, Blu-ray player,streaming Netflix, DVD's, stereo radio, lots of books and games, a lovely stone fireplace, a woodstove, and propane furnace. The master bedroom has two twin beds which are convertible to a king using our professional twin to king conversion kit. We leave it in the king configuration unless you prefer the two twins. The second bedroom has two sets of bunk beds and a VHS, DVD TV player with lots of old children's VHS tapes. One of the bunks is twin over twin and the other is twin over double.

The cottage has a lovely roofed patio on the lakeside with outdoor fireplace, propane grill, adirondack chairs, lawn chairs, lounges, and picnic table. There is a front and back yard, a deck, six stairs to lake level, a dock, and a swim float. The lake depth is about two feet off the dock and very gradually deepens as you go out. The depth at the swim float is about five feet. An electric boat hoist is also available.

The cottage is completely furnished including dishes, silverware, coffee maker, pots and pans, etc. Just bring your sheets, towels and pillowcases. We are well off the road and have plenty of parking.

If you are fishing enthusiasts like we are, you will find some of the best fishing in the state on Seneca Lake. We catch bass and pan fish right off the dock. If you have a boat, we will show you how to catch the beautiful abundant Seneca Lake lake trout as well as the landlocked salmon, rainbows, browns perch and bass. Boat rentals are just five minutes away. We would be happy to arrange a rental for you.

This vacation property owner is a United States Coast Guard Licensed Captain and is offering renters special rates on fishing charters in his fully equipped boat. Special rates are $99 per person for half-day fishing (see link to Captain Joe's below). Boat tours with the Captain are also available.

We have written and assembled a “Welcome” book for our guests. It presents all of the information on the cottage and the area, including directions to the restaurants, wineries, attractions, bait stores, grocery stores, shopping areas, and more.

We are sure you will have a very enjoyable vacation at our cottage and look forward to hearing from you.
