Cozy, Beautiful Lake Front Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage truly surpassed our expectations. It is ideal for a small family or two couples on a get-away weekend. The layout works well and has all the amenities that one could ask for. The kitchen is well stocked with all the necessary appliances, dishes, utensils, spices, etc. We really enjoyed the deck which is right on the water and the firepit which we used at night for a cozy evening. Everythng is so well looked after and the owners were very responsive to our needs during our stay. Thank you so much for such a memorable weekend. We defintely would want to come back again and again!!

family lake get away

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is absolutely lovely. The owner has done a beautiful job renovating this cottage so everything is new and fresh, attractively decorated, and well stocked ( linens, paper goods, cookware, outdoor furniture, etc.). This cottage is extremely clean and well-maintained, no wasting time re-cleaning linens and bathrooms like other cottages I have been in. The beds were comfortable, closet spacious and well organized, and bathrooms comfortable (although the one shower is a little narrow). The cottage has a nice deck with a retractable awning, large BBQ grill, deck table and chairs, and adirondack chairs for evening meals and drinks by the lake. Your neighbors are close as this is very much a family oriented lake getaway. I would suggests you bring in most of your groceries (especially any specialty items) because well-stocked grocery stores are not close by- Topps is the nicest grocery store nearby unless you like gift shopping.There isn't cable TV but we did have NetFlix and used Red Box DVDs for evening entertainment. Many of the lake goers were kayaking, boating, fishing, and swimming. Weekends seemed busier than during the week. If you have bikes there are several roads wide enough to bike safely. We enjoyed walking around the lake in the evenings.

During the days my family and I traveled to nearby Buffalo, Niagara Falls, Ellicottville, and Letchworth State Park. Driving in this area is pleasant as you go through a lot of farmland, drivers are polite, and we rarely hit any traffic. We enjoyed the Buffalo Zoo and the Science Museum, loved the hiking and falls at Letchworth State Park and Niagara Falls was great (don't miss doing the Hornblower Cruise on the Canadian side).

Our rental agent was very responsive to any concerns we had. She always replied to our calls and texts within the hour or less and was very concerned about our comfort.

One thing to keep in mind that can not be changed is trains do go by this property during the day a couple of times and early in the morning. We kept the windows closed at night to minimize the noise. It usually only went through once a night but something to be aware of.

Otherwise like I said, this is a lovely cabin. It isn't a private lot high in the mountains instead more like at the beach with close neighbors. But if you like water activities, waving to your neighbors and sharing a beer or glass of wine and your kids enjoy playing with other kids they probably would make a couple new friends.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Just the two of us but plenty of room for more. Nice and quiet. I think we were off season, but the place was well stocked, organized, and very clean. They did a great job having everything available. One hiccup, check the propane, before you buy steak. Someone left it open and was empty. Broiler worked well. Highly recommend. Got some beautiful pics of the sunset from the deck.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review of your time at The Lake Cottage. We are so happy that you were comfortable and enjoyed your stay. We are extremely sorry to hear about the propane tank on the outdoor grill. Anyone would be very disappointed with that. We do keep a backup tank in the storage shed, but it's sad that a previous guest wouldn't bother to close the tank. Happy that the broiler worked well, but a steak is so much better on the grill. Thank you for taking such great care of the cottage. We look forward to having you back again. All the best, The Owners

Cozy getaway

  • 5 of 5

It was a very pleasant stay at the cottage! We enjoyed skiing in Holiday Valley and shopping/dining in Ellicottville. The drive was easy even with a bit of snow. The house is very functional and well-appointed, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Happy Holiday Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home with my three children, ages 7, 5, and 2. The place was very neat, clean, and great attention to detail. I couldn't think of thing we wanted that wasn't provided. This house is not exactly set up for a young walker and it is difficult to block off the stairs, but for older children this place is lovely. My kids really enjoyed the games, books, and the loft so they could look down and see what the grown-ups were up to. The bedding was very comfortable. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
