Why Pat Hoke chose Dresden

Our family has had a cottage nearby since 1930, and since has added 3 more in the same vicinity. When these latter cottages were purchased, we knew from years of experience that this location is one of the most desireable on any of the Finger Lakes. Our cottage is very accessible year around, has ease of access to the water, enjoys peace and solitude, as well as privacy, and has beautiful views of the lake. The area behind the cottage is lawn and woods, which is also very scenic. We found the cottage to have a real, quaint lake front cottage feeling. It is cozy with lots of windows and light. We also liked the fact that the bedrooms were very large for a cottage, unlike many cottages we had seen. There are no big drop offs at the water, so our children and our grandchildren can enjoy playing in the water without fear. It was the nicest of all the cottages we looked at, and our family loves it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stumbled upon your site when searching for a weekend getaway. I thought the pictures of the Arrowhead Cottage were gorgeous. Of course, we were skeptical because we’d been burned by internet pictures in the past. But we decided to take a chance. Well, we couldn’t have been more pleased. The cottage was exactly what we wanted. The shabby chic décor was artfully executed, the colors and fabrics so soothing. I wouldn’t change a thing. The setting was even more breathtaking than the pictures. It was the ideal weekend for us. We sat on the porch gazing at the water for hours (and we’re from the Jersey Shore )! It was hard to leave the cottage. Thanks for an amazing adventure.

Fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

Spent a great weekend at this property. The views of the lake are phenomenal and the hot tub really makes chilly spring evenings on the lake that much more enjoyable. This is my second time staying here and would come again!

Wine/birthday getaway weekend

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property for 2 couples or small group. Amazing view with gorgeous sunrise. Comfortable rooms and beds. Plenty of books/games available. Cookware could use updating. Early check in or late check out only accommodated for a $25/hour fee which seems high.

Lovely, secluded lakefront cottage

  • 4 of 5

Lovely lakefront cottage in a very quiet neighborhood. Cozy space, worked well for our family of 4 and our dog. Very convenient to wineries and great state parks. The house offers beautiful views of Lake Seneca and the dock was the perfect spot for fishing and floating in the water. We had a great week!

Great get away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went to Arrowhead cottage with our friends for a long weekend and it was great! The place was very comfy and homey, well kept and the view of the lake was beautiful! Whenever we were back at the cottage I stayed on either the dock or back deck and it was so relaxing! Since we came for a nice relaxing weekend, we stayed put most of the time and cooked our own meals at the cottage which was great because they had everything we needed right there! The owner of the place was also as nice as can be and was very helpful with whatever questions we had before and during our trip! I highly recommend this place and I know my husband and I will most definitely be planning a trip back!
