I grew up in nearby Geneva and have spent part of every summer at the cottage since I was a child. My wife and I have degrees from Alfred University and SUNY Geneseo. Our family has many warm and special memories from times spent at the cottage.
Richard purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Richard chose Geneva
This property has been in my family since the 1930s. This area on the east shore of Seneca Lake once was a large park with a dance pavilion and picnic areas known as Pastime Park. It was divided and sold to individuals in the 1930's, and remains a secluded, private area just 5 miles from Geneva.
What makes this Cottage unique
Being on the east shore of the lake, the sun filters through the trees in the morning, and shade lingers on parts of the lawn during the day. Refreshing breezes may blow across the water until late afternoon. Typically, there are beautiful, quiet sunsets in the evening.

A very well managed property, at a gorgeous location!
Well, this was just a perfect spot for our Sisters' Birthday weekend! We truly enjoyed all aspects of the cottage, the waterfront, and the surrounding areas. Richard and Susan keep their place delightfully clean, very Welcoming, and even stock it with treats and goodies to make your stay easier! We enjoyed their waterfront/ fireside seating, their great deck, and some of the neighboring wineries...( and even the Seneca White Deer tour they had in their " info notebook"). THANKS for a relaxinfg and fun time!
A week on Seneca Lake
We were planning a week in the Finger Lakes region and found this wonderful little cottage on VRBO. It was on the east side of Seneca Lake and about a 5 minute drive from Geneva. We arrived early and got to meet the owners, Richard and Sue, and they were very welcoming and helpful. The huge deck overlooking the lake is a real plus. It also has a grill which we used extensively. It is very centrally located within the Finger Lakes and we took day trips around several of the lakes in the area, including Seneca, Cayuga, Canandaigua, and Keuka. They also had a canoe, two kayaks, life vests and other "toys" available for you to use. We had a wonderful vacation there and would certainly try and stay at this cottage if we ever get back there for another vacation.
Wonderful! We'd go back in a heartbeat.
Peaceful, relaxing, quiet, close to many activities. Nice touches by owners made travel easier for us. We loved the swimming, kayaking, and just being outside while we were there. The sunsets were gorgeous.
Loved loved this getaway location❤️ Lake Seneca is beautiful !
Richard was fabulous from start to finish. The cottage is quaint, clean and up to date with all the needed amenities. We arrived and pleasantly surprised with the goodies for breakfast and snacks. Everything was comfy from start to finish. We were there for a wedding so most of our time was spent in all the festivities. We did golf and toured the area hopefully for a return visit. It was just what the doctored ordered for a getaway with my husband. It happened to be our 33rd wedding anniversary too! Thanks Richard for a fabulous stay !
We had a lovely time at this cottage!
Everything we needed for a comfortable stay was provided, even a Keurig coffee maker besides a regular one.
We also enjoyed the Canoe and the Kayaks.
The location is very convenient, secluded, but close to Geneva for shopping, dining etc.
We can highly recommend this cottage!
My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at the Seneca Lake cottage in Geneva.
The cottage was everything that we had hoped for. It was very well maintained and very clean. It had a great view of the lake and was situated in a very quiet area. It was also located very close to many destinations that we wanted to visit.
Check-in time is 3PM, and check-out is no later than 11AM.
There are many wineries nearby that offer tastings and tours. Also nearby are 3 state parks: Seneca Lake State Park, Sampson State Park, and Cayuga State Park. The National Women's Hall of Fame which is a national historic site, The Finger Lakes National Forest, and Rose Hill Mansion are all within a half hour drive. Beautiful Seneca Lake is the deepest of the Finger Lakes and offers swimming, boating, fishing, and spectacular sunsets.
