About Christy Chapman

Dr. Chapman is a materials scientist by day who got into the rental business as a way to offset the cost of lake front property ownership.

Christy Chapman purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Christy Chapman chose New York

We love the Finger Lakes Region in general and Lamoka Lake is ideal because it is quieter than the bigger lakes yet you can take a boat directly to Waneta through the channel if you want something different. The public island is a nice place to swim or picnic or pick wild blueberries. The water here is more shallow so it warms up nicely and there are no zebra mussels (razor clams) so you can just walk in barefoot.

What makes this cottage unique

The wildlife is spectacular. We like to wake up in the morning and see a heron on the dock or a bald eagle flying overhead. Osprey and kingfishers are quite common. The carp try to beach themselves foraging for food in our shallow areas by the rasberry bushes. My favorite time is at night by the bonfire listening to bullfrogs. I like to look out over the lake where we barely see another light or a house. The stars are nice in August; no light pollution. Every now and then the sound of a fox or pack of coyotes in the distance reminds you that you really are outdoors.

Beautiful setting and very quiet!

  • 4 of 5

Very clean bungalow with the right amount of amenities to keep you comfortable. Quiet setting with great views of the lake. Jumping fish, beaver and whitetail deer right outside the door. Wonderful!

Unplugged

  • 4 of 5

After a long year of being on duty 24/7, this was a wonderful place to get off the grid. It was particularly lovely to be there mid-week. The lake was practically empty except for jumping fish, birds and bullfrogs. The cottage is cozy but not cramped and the closed in porch was great for a rainy day, to look out onto the water, read and enjoy quiet conversation.

This Relaxed Waterfront Property Offers Lots of Fun!

  • 5 of 5

This cozy two bed, one bath provides everything needed for a fun-filled getaway with a private dock, canoes and a row boat provided, terrific fishing, plentiful outdoor seating, and a fire pit. The cabin is comfortable and well-equipped for an unplugged vacation. It is close to many local attractions such as Watkins Glen, the Corning Museum of Glass and wineries. The setting of the property affords good privacy and offers stunning opportunities to appreciate nature- we had the pleasure of seeing many birds of prey during our stay including osprey and bald eagles. This relatively affordable rental will not disappoint.

Wonderful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The view was WONDERFUL, the property clean and well maintained! There was quite a diverse selection of books and videos. A 7 year old caught 5 fish in under an hour right off the dock! GREAT day for Grandpa and Grandson!

We were looking for a place close to home to relax, read, and reconnect. We found it!!
