My wife (Kristen) and I purchased this property in November 2009 and until December 2013, it was our primary home, at which time we relocated to Corning, NY for work. Kristen and I have two daughters (Meredith, 2 and Juliet, 1). Both my wife and I were raised on Seneca Lake/Geneva and have numerous family members living in the Finger Lakes Region. We are quite familiar with the area and would be honored to share this beautiful home with others.

We love to go on a trip once a year where we can take our two big dogs. We have never been to the finger lakes and have heard wonderful things about it from several people so we thought we would check it out. I searched for a couple weeks to find as dog friendly as I could, allowing 2 dogs and fenced in yard. This cottage could not have been any better for us!
The owners have done a lot of work to make this a very updated place to stay, with the whole inside newly renovated. They keep a lot of the basics in the kitchen and supply fresh towels and sheets! There was a huge basket of dog toys which our two just kept pulling more and more toys out of to play with. The fenced in yard was the nicest feature for them to run around as we were sitting out by the fire pit.
Since this was the first time to the area we just explored and found things online to check out. There are so many state parks close by and a national forest about 30 minutes away. The national forest was really pretty and after a good hike with the dogs there are wineries just one after another to stop off at for a tasting.
Needless to say I can see us returning here in the near future!
We loved our relaxing stay at this Seneca Lake cottage. Explored Geneva, hiked at Watkins Glen and the Finger Lakes National Forest, visited many of the nearby wineries and enjoyed a glass of wine or two out on the cottage deck with its great view of the lake. Very quiet property with neighboring cottage on only one side. The cottage interior has a spacious, open floor plan with large windows to showcase spectacular sunsets. But it’s also cozy in the evenings. The up-to-date (wine fridge and dishwasher!) kitchen and the outdoor fire pit and grill were pleasant surprises. Getting to the shore, however, is difficult and not for the faint of heart. There are two steep staircases leading down to a small, pebbly shoreline and we couldn't quite figure out how to get the kayaks down there (or back up). All in all, it was a lovely property and we regretted leaving our dog at home as this property was very dog-friendly.
We had such a nice time at this property! We came in very late on a Friday night and we were very nervous about arriving in the dark... after reading the reviews about the property being" rustic." We drove through a corn field and arrived at a train track, we almost didn't drive any further, but of course we did! We came to a little house at the end of the road, owls hooting in the background, my intrigue pushed me forward. Nuts and acorns were falling from the trees and scared me to death, but I pushed on ;) I unlocked the lockbox for the key and was in the mud-room in a flash. It was a perfect room to leave our shoes and beach equipment. I opened the door to the cabin and was pleasantly surprised. With lovely wood floors and little perks like beautiful countertops and a panoramic view of the lake, I was very please to say the least. The best part was the fenced in yard for the dog, the amazing view of Geneva (even from the bathroom) , I didn't want to leave. The lake is a long way down from the house and don't forget your water-shoes/socks, but the workout was good for us. The only downside was the shared steps down to the dock, I felt like I was intruding on the other house's space. But I personally loved this particular property because the privacy it gave us! It was perfect for a romantic weekend, we even walked to the vineyards! Geneva has a lot to offer and we had a very special time, this property is a little gem (I almost don't want to share it). Thank you for a lovely, special weekend, I love this place!
My boyfriend and I brought our two dogs to this property for a 5 nights of vacation and had a wonderful time. The house was stocked with more amenities than advertised - including a grill, fire pit with chairs, folding camp chairs that can be taken to the dock, tons of dog toys, internet TV, and linens, bath and beach towels. The stairs and dock are shared with the property next door, but this wasn't a problem for us at all. Also, because of the steep slopes to the lake there isn't a beach as I was expecting, but a narrow shale shore. Again, this wasn't a problem because we just hung out on the dock to get sun. Overall everything was wonderful, the locale attractions close and fun, and the house a perfect rustic setting for relaxing with some wine. A word of caution though, you're in the woods, so be prepared for lots of spiders and mosquitos!
If you are looking to "unplug" and enjoy the Finger Lakes, this is a great place to do it. It's small, yet open and has an amazing uncluttered view of Seneca Lake. Super close to Three Brothers, Zubiga, and Ventosa Wineries. The lake is about 70 steps down, so Gramma might not be able to visit the dock. But we enjoyed the exercise. Its "spartan"…so if you're looking for more "frills" in your accommodations than your surroundings it may not be perfect for you….but it was for us!!! This little house was perfect for me, my husband and my two dogs. We will definitely return.
Thank you for all you help Danielle….we miss this place already!! :)
