About the Property

135 Ft of Flat Beach & Lawn; Screened Porch; Sleeps 5, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom

Located on the western shore of beautiful Seneca Lake about eight miles south of Geneva just off Route 14, Easy Livin’ Cottage at Oak Grove Beach is a perfect place to relax and enjoy family fun. This two-bedroom lakeside cottage offers something to guests of all ages, and its location in the heart of the Finger Lakes makes Easy Livin’ Cottage an ideal destination for a family or two adult couples.

Easy Livin’ Cottage is very comfortable and decorated to reflect the Finger Lakes. It features a fully equipped brand new “L” shaped kitchen that includes an electric stove with oven, refrigerator, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender, dishes, utensils, glassware, and pots and pans. A spacious living-dining room with a working fireplace and 32” LCD television set with Direct-TV and DVD provides warmth and entertainment on chilly evenings. Baseboard heat plus a heater in the bathroom are also available. There is one bathroom with a shower; the water supply is from the city. The master bedroom has a queen bed, and the second bedroom includes a bunk bed with a full mattress on the lower bed and a single on the upper and will sleep three. There is also a queen pullout sofa in the living room. French doors provide open access from the living area to the spacious screened-in porch overlooking the lake and features a picnic table and ample seating. This is a great place to enjoy the exquisite sunrises, the serene moon rises, or to relax, read a book or just daydream and enjoy the lake. The cottage is all on one floor with two steps at the driveway side entrance.


The large rolling lawn borders 135 feet of level natural lake frontage and provides wonderful opportunities for summer fun. You might cook on the charcoal grill, gather everyone around the outside picnic table for a summer barbecue, play a board game or game of cards, but be sure to take time to relax in the comfort of the Adirondack chairs on the lawn as you watch the wildlife and waves on the lake.

Eight stairs bring you to a level beach. The lakefront is all natural and the water depth is gradual, about three feet at the end of the dock and “dotted” with a few large rocks, making this a perfect spot to swim, wade and play in the water. The dock is great for relaxing and sunbathing. In the evening the fire pit is available for a campfire, toasting marshmallows and making s'mores. You can watch the moon rise across the lake, enjoy the serenity of the moonlight dancing on the lake, find the patterns in the stars, or simply listen to the water lapping on the shore. All this will make for Easy Livin’ during your stay at the cottage at Oak Grove Beach. Railroad Tracks run 100 feet behind the house with a short train about twice a day.

The Finger Lakes offers attractions for visitors of all ages:

Child's Play: Seneca Lake State Park has a spray ground, and the Community Playground is located just south of the Ramada, right on the lake. Roseland Waterpark in Canandaigua offers fun for all with slides and a wave pool. Go-Karts make for fun in Penn Yan.

Boating: Contact Roy's Marina for boat and jet ski rentals. Take a cruise on Seneca Lake from Geneva on the Cayuga-Seneca Canal, from Watkins Glen on the south end of Seneca Lake or on Canandaigua Lake on the Canandaigua Lady. If you trailer your own boat, it can be launched from nearby sites, but cannot be moored overnight at the cottage dock.

Tour the Wine, Beer and Cheese Trails: Together the Finger Lakes Wine Trails feature over 200 wineries. The cottage is located near the beginning of the Seneca Lake Wine Trail which offers award winning wines for every taste. Cayuga and Keuka Lakes also offer wine trails; The Finger Lake Cheese Trail offers artisan cheeses made in the Finger Lakes; The Finger Lakes Beer Trail promotes awareness of the growing craft brewing industry in the Finger Lakes region?.

Shopping: Shop for fresh produce at the local farm stands or Farmer's Markets in Geneva, Penn Yan and Canandaigua. Pick your own strawberries all season long at Seneca Breeze Berries just down the road from the cottage, or blueberries. Visit the Waterloo Outlets or the Windmill Farm and Craft Market (Saturdays only).

Antiquing: Visit the Geneva Antiques Co-op or the many shops in the area.

Golf: Play Seneca Lake Country Club, Big Oak Public Golf Course, or the four courses on the Finger Lakes Golf Trail: Bristol Harbour, Greystone, Ravenwood and Mill Creek.

Performing Arts: Enjoy live theatre and concerts at the Finger Lakes Performing Arts Center in Canandaigua, Smith Opera House in Geneva, and the Merry Go Round Playhouse in Auburn.

Hike: Hike the beautiful gorges at Watkins Glen State Park or the Taughannock Falls State Park in Trumansburg. Walk the trail on the Keuka Outlet along the river from Penn Yan to Dresden. There is a paved walking trail along the foot of Seneca Lake in Geneva that begins near the Ramada and goes all the way to the State Park.

Bike: Bicycle on the back country roads or along the path of the Erie Canal.

Museums and Historic Sites: Visit the Prouty Chew Museum in Geneva for an exhibit on the history of the city, Rose Hill Mansion, Ganondagan State Historic Site in Victor, Corning Museum of Glass, Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, the Glenn Curtiss Aviation Museum in Hammondsport, or the Seward House in Auburn, the Women's Rights National Historical Park and Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls and more.

Art Museums: Enjoy the collection of artwork featured at the Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, Rockwell Museum of Western Art in Corning, or the Johnson Museum of Art in Ithaca.

Wildlife: Visit Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge in Savannah or ride by the old Seneca Army Depot along Route 96 and hope to catch a glimpse of the famous white deer grazing in the fields behind the fence.

Racing at 'The Glen': Watkins Glen International hosts races throughout the season.

Restaurants: Area restaurants offer a variety of opportunities - simple, gourmet, organic or vegetarian fare, breakfast, brunch, lunch, tea, dinner, dining inside, outside and overlooking the lake. The notebook at the cottage is full of menus and directions. Several ice cream stands are in the area, we suggest trying out each, as they all offer delicious treats. If you want to enroll in a cooking lesson or learn more about wine paring, you might want to visit the Finger Lakes Wine and Culinary Institute in Canandaigua. Be aware that many of the local wineries feature their own special restaurant fare.
