About Rosalyn or Larry

My husband and I have been residents of Geneva all our lives. Both of us are lucky enough to live and work on the lake. Raising our kids in this area watching them grow up on the lake enjoying activities such as water skiing, tubing, swimming, boating, fishing, hunting waterfowl, and helping out at our marina(Roy's Marina) for Boat rentals

Rosalyn or Larry purchased this house in 2003

Why Rosalyn or Larry chose Geneva

After admiring cottonwood cove for years, we decided to jump at the chance to purchased it. We love the private setting level lot and the layout of the house. Built in the 50's it was one of the few houses built back then, for year long living, with great attention to detail.

What makes this house unique

From past renters and ourselves we have enjoyed the great sunrises and just the peace and quite. We enjoy the camp fires at night and watch the moon come up.

Beautiful weekend

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I came up for the weekend for a race. We loved the place!!The description was accurate and the place was very tidy. The view was priceless. We enjoyed coffee in the morning on the dock. The water is clear and inviting. It must be wonderful to swim and boat in the summer. The inside was very comfortable and had plenty of room to cook and eat. The rooms were very nice and every thing was very comfortable. The owners were very pleasant and easy to communicate with. It was very close to Geneva as well as the wineries. We would definitely recommend this to friends and relative. I really want to come back next year at this time. It seems as it would be even more spectacular in the summer!!

Great cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled when we drove up and it looked just like it was depicted on the website! The owners were very easy to contact on arrival. It is a cottage on a lake, so don't expect The Westin. We loved every minute of it...and we stay at a lot of Westin's! If you are going to the Finger Lakes for the wine trails, this is a great central location from which to travel from. There are many restaurants within a few miles, shopping, and a quaint downtown area for this charming college town. We hope to be back next year!
