This was a perfect quaint cabin on the lake to enjoy time with our dog and 2 kids. Close to the village, WiFi, fire pit, and little porch to sit and read. Can’t wait to visit again!
Quaint and homey
Perfect spot for one person to enjoy some peace and quiet. Andy, the owner, and his wife are wonderful, helpful and very friendly.
My friend and I stayed in this property for our annual fishing and guitar playing trip. The property was more spacious that expected and it has real nice private lake access. It’s also only 1 mile from town. We had a great time from Thursday thru Sunday. I highly recommend this property!
Perfect for families!
Location was great and amenities were spot on. We recommended it to friends!
We appreciate your review and recommendation.
We stayed in early December and the cottage was perfect for us, specially the fact that it was pet friendly so we could bring our lab. It is a great location, just a short walk down to the lake and also very close to the village. Bed is very comfortable and cabin has all the amenities you would expect. We happened to meet one of the cottage owners at Rosalia’s who gave us some great tips on food! We enjoyed coming this time of year as it is quiet, yet many activities are on going. All the local folks were super friendly. We visited many wineries and breweries that allow pets. As YMCA members we took advantage of the nationwide reciprocity and used the the Skaneateles Y which has awesome skating rinks. If you are new to the area (as we were) check out the recently opened visitors center in Auburn which provides lots of information. All in all a great time and we will back at this cottage in the spring!
Thanks Kim for your review.
This traveling couple and pet were the perfect guests! We normally close the cottage for the winter months after Thanksgiving. After communicating with Kim, I was convinced that they could handle the cottage in December. I'm so glad they came. My sister met them and instantly texted me to tell me that they seemed like a fun couple. And thank you Kim for taking such good care of the cottage, and leaving it so clean. Hopefully we'll see you again.
Just what I needed
I stayed here on my own for Thanksgiving weekend, so not sure how relevant my review will be for others. But it suited my needs perfectly. Very hard to find a small affordable rental on any of the Finger Lakes. Cozy, clean. Loved the fireplace, particularly at this time of year. Only a mile walk to town, so I hardly needed my car at all once I got settled in. Heater is a bit noisy, but not a big deal. Overall, very satisfied, would do it again.
Stephen was the perfect guest. It was a chilly weekend. My father built that fireplace 65 years ago for my grandmother's she cave. Thanks for staying with us, and thank you for your review.
