The house was perfect for our girls weekend. The views are wonderful, lots of space, and awesome neighbors (including a cat named Seneca who was the cutest cat ever). House was clean with lots of room. Shower was fine. Clean and good pressure. Highly recommend this house. Excellent weekend!
The location and dock are awesome. Great rustic cabin with all you need for a great week.
We used the house just for eating and sleeping. The ample outdoor space and huge dock is where we spent the majority of our time. Located close to many wineries and breweries and only about 10 minutes to downtown Watkins Glen. We used the grill everyday and the stovetop and oven worked great. The shower is a bit funky in that it is located in the basement and is only accessible from outside but was no problem to use. Very secluded so it was easy and made for a very relaxing week.
Thank you for your review. This is our first year renting this unique rustic cottage. We hope you will join us again on Seneca Lake.

This was a wonderful place for our family to unwind and enjoy each others company. The house was spacious and the area was quiet. The neighbors were friendly, as was their cat. There were a lot of things to do locally plus being on the wine trail was a bonus. Swimming was great! And we got to see fireworks from the dock which was also awesome. We plan to come back again.
Thank yo for your review and we are so glad that you enjoyed the cottage. We certainly hope you will join us again.

It is a great location. Right on the water and beautiful surroundings.
The lack of a decent shower was a damper. The upstairs bathroom has a bathtub without a shower or even a flexible shower head. I also could not stand anywhere in that bathroom (I'm about 6'2"). The bathroom in the lower level is not really practical either. First of all you have to go out of the house to get there. I could barely stand in the shower stall. Also the water pressure was pretty much zero. So no way to use it really.
The rest of the place was fine. It is a little bit musty but the sunroom has great views of the lake and you feel like you're almost sitting on the lake while you're peacefully sitting there.

We want to thank you for the feedback on the cottage. Your feedback lets us know what we need to improve and work on. We did try to explain that this is a rustic family cottage and the bathroom / shower situation . We will try to reword the descriptions to give guest a better description of the shower and bath. We will be meeting with the owners next week to see what improvements can be made. We did try to price the cottage accordingly for this. We are glad you found the surrounding beautiful and peaceful. You are one of our first guest so we certainly appreciate your comments on what we need to improve
Watkins Glen is a wonderful vacation destination. This property is located on the largest of the Finger lakes and just a few miles from the village of Watkins Glen which offers marinas, parks , shopping restaurants and wine and beer tastings. There are hundreds of miles of hiking trails located on State and Federal lands or in our many local State Parks. Many with wonderful waterfalls and gorges.
Ithaca and Corning are less than 30 minutes away with museums, colleges and an array of dining experiences. the finger lakes region is know for its many wineries, breweries, Watkins Glen International raceway, State Parks and of course the beautiful lakes for fishing and boating.
