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!

large and clean cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very good stay at the cottage. Owners were very friendly and had recommendations for things to do in the region. They responded quickly to any questions we had asked them before the stay. Cottage was large (four bedrooms), clean and well-equipped -- TV, dishes, some food basics, towels, recycling bins and an iron (which was important as we had to wear good clothes one day). One minor thing: the wi-fi signal was weak inside the cottage, much better on the deck.

Cottage is only half an hour from Ithaca and Waterloo, which we visited on different days. Sciencenter in Ithaca is a great place for children.

Owner's Response: We are so appreciative of this great review - almost as appreciative as we are of the guests who wrote it - who were so pleasant, neat, and respectful of our cottage and the people in the area. We enjoyed their family so much. We would also like to apologize that we did not communicate to them that there was another option for a better wi-fi signal inside the cottage. We appreciate this feedback immensely so we will not make the same mistake in the future. This family were such great guests that we hope they return sometime in the future!
