What a great get away, beautiful camp, great owners, hope to return soon.

  • 5 of 5

This camp is great and has everything you can think of from grilling tools to Q-tips. The place is very clean. The beds are comfortable, TV's in all the rooms. The WIFI was great (we brought our Alexa and had music on demand on the deck). If you need something the owners are right there to help you. We did not need a thing as they really have thought of everything. We met a few of the seasonal residents and everyone was very nice and helpful. The wine / brewery tours are all close by as well as several nice restaurants. But if you want to cook the kitchen is well stocked with pretty much every utensil, pan and spice you would ever need. And there is a nice outside Charglow grill you can use. We cooked a few meals but also went to the Scale House and enjoyed their pizza, special meatballs, and a few flights or some tasty brews. I liked the peanut butter stout but they were all very good and we were entertained with good live music. ( A round two contestant on The Voice accompanied by her dad on guitar. ) It was a great time. Because the camp is so close to Watkins Glenn and Ithica, we spent a morning in each and had plenty of time to get back and enjoy the lake in the afternoon. We brought kayaks and inner tubes and had a blast. We will be booking again.

Lakefront cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this lakeside cottage, with deck and nice grass area for kids to play, fire pit, dock, etc. The cottage was cozy, and well equipped. Owners were very helpful and welcoming.

Great Lake getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. It accommodated our family (4 adults 3 children)very efficiently. The property has a large yard for kids to roam and a great deck for adults to "supervise" from. The owners had good communication and were very welcoming. We will be returning.

Perfect cottage on the lake

  • 5 of 5

A group of girl friends went up for the weekend. The cottage is in a great location between vineyards. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. Cottage was clean and nice. Had great size bedrooms. Excellent views of the sunset on Seneca Lake. Would highly recommend!
