About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

The Bird's Nest is owned and operated by the owners of Shalestone Vineyards. Located in a quiet lake shore neighborhood just below the vineyard.

The deep ravine and active stream on the north side provide privacy and a soothing sound.

This newly renovated cottage has a cathedral ceiling spanned by a large cherry log and accented with Stag Horn Sumac branches. All the woodworking is made from trees harvested from the property, (red cedar and white oak)

The kitchen cabinets are made from wine barrels.

The queen size bed has a 3' memory foam top and faces a large window overlooking the lake. Lounge in bed and listen to the lapping waves or catch the morning sunrise on the opposite shore.

A large deck runs along the entire lake side of the cottage and has a partial roof for sun/rain protection.

75 feet of private beach, a 1 minute walk to the beach or drive down for unloading kayaks, coolers or a small boat trailer. Fire pit, bring your own wood. Umbrella and chairs provided.

Perfect couple retreat

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very clean, well equipped and the view is awesome. We enjoyed our mornings on the deck rocking in the chairs and taking in the amazing view. We spent several evenings roasting hot dogs over the fire pit. The weather was warm enough that we were able to take a dip in the lake. If you're going to do that, water shoes are recommended.

The location is great. Friday night check out Hazlitt Winery for some entertainment from 5-8, then head up to Wagner Vineyards and Brewery to keep your night going. There are many good wineries nearby. We stumbled on Rasta Ridge for blues on Monday evening.

There are several good restaurants nearby too. We enjoyed Stonecat and pizza from Scale House Brewery. We also dined at Dano's.

Kate was great to work with and we'd highly recommend renting this cottage.

Perfect lakeside cottage

  • 5 of 5

I loved absolutely everything about the bird's nest! The cottage is so cozy,clean,and peace and quiet. We spent most of our time on the deck listening to the waterfall(which runs right beside the cottage)and watching the amazing sunsets.The beach feels extremely private as dog and I actually braved the chilly water and loved it! The location of the cottage is perfect for driving along the wine trail, and visiting Watkins Glen. We couldn't have been happier with our stay!

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful nights at the lake cottage. The views and the deck are amazing and the cottage has everything you need and more. We loved that we could still sit outside and enjoy the lake view when it rained, from the covered deck. As the name suggests the cottage is cozy but feels very spacious and comfortable. Kate was very easy to communicate with and made the whole process super easy. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!
