A fantastic getaway destination

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at the house, we were pleasantly surprised, having never been to this area before and not knowing what to expect outside of some pictures. Leading up to our stay, the owner, Peggy, was polite, accommodating, and informative. Upon our arrival, we met the property manager, Kay, who greeted us upon arrival Nd went through the house with us to show us any features we needed to be familiarized with and answer any questions we had about the area and property. The house is clean, smells great, and is one of the most cozy places we’ve ever had the pleasure of staying in. The house is right on the lake with some spectacular views. Waking up to see people skating, windsurfing, and ice fishing on the frozen lake was the coolest thing. All in all, we had a wonderful time and would recommend this home to families or couples lol king to get away. Thanks again for making this feel like home! If ever in the area l, this is the place we’d love to stay in again!

Cozy and charming retreat

  • 5 of 5

We came here for our anniversary with some friends. We wanted to be close to Ellicotville, but not right in town. This was a perfect location and retreat! Initial impression is how clean the place is! It’s immaculate! The linens are all clean and neat. The furnishings are well appointed for this little cabin. It was very warm and cozy and we enjoyed the whole stay!

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
