Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful time in the cute little cottage! We had everything we needed for a stress-free few days! The weather was spectacular, and we decided to use the pedal boat that was there for our use! Since our stay was during the week, we practically had the whole lake to ourselves! We enjoyed fishing from that fun little boat and just took in the beautiful lake! We saw some amazing sun rises while there! The location can't be beat! Judy was the best! Thank you for sharing your little slice of heaven with us!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this wonderful review. I also have to say you are a homeowner's dream come true. The perfect couple to rent to. It brought me such joy just knowing all the fun you were having and enjoying all Seneca Lake and the area had to offer. Enjoy the fall season and the year ahead.

Beautiful lakefront tiny house :)

  • 5 of 5

This place was just what we needed! We loved relaxing by the fire pit listening to the sounds of the lakes and nature. The house was in a great location and we were central to all of the wineries and restaurants we wanted to go to. The cottage provided us with exactly what we needed - comfortable little getaway! Judy was very easy to work with and the cottage was kept clean and had everything we needed for a short stay. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend away!

Nice little getaway

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was just as advertised. Suitable for a couple. Very impressed with all the amenities in the kitchen. Judy responded to any questions we had in a very short time. We were fortunate cottages either side of us were vacant during the week as parking can be tricky on weekends. To expand a little more, we were able to see the cottage from the highway. When vehicles were parked at both cottages beside this one, we were not able to drive to the cottage but picked a turn around spot on the gravel road leading to the cottage, then backed all the way down to the parking area. Could be a challenge for some. The internet was sluggish but improved contacting Judy who then called the IP Sever. Dropped connections during transactions was frustrating as this was a working vacation. We enjoyed our two weeks spending time at wineries, museums and The Windmill is a must see! If you are looking for a rental with fantastic views you will also love the amazing night time of stars and moon shining on the lake. A definite piece of heaven. Thank you for sharing your "Tiny Living" with us.

The Perfect Tiny Place

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place for our girls' getaway. The house layout is very efficient and is well stocked. The views are amazing and Judy is just an email or call away! Rented kayaks that were delivered right to the water. Would definitely come back!! Oh, Port Cafe down the road is highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Hi Meg, I have a future renter who read your review and is wondering who it was you rented kayaks from that delivered them to you? Also, thank you for your very kind review!! Judy

It was everything I hoped for.

  • 5 of 5

A very charming tiny cottage and the view from the deck was spectacular! It had everything I needed with quality bed linens, yes I'm kind of a bedding snob. LOL

It was very, very peaceful and the sunrise was always beautiful. I really couldn't of asked for more. Judy was extremely pleasant and always helpful. We will be going back. Thank you Judy!
