Guestbook comments from the owner

What an awesome view....We had the best vacation in a long time. Everything that the owner listed was as they stated. House was very well kept and clean. All the amenities of home plus a view that we don't have. Sitting on the dock and reading a book was so peaceful, along with seeing the boaters go by.



Thank you again!!!! I give you 5 stars!!

Great Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the house for almost 2 months as I was in town for work. Barry was very accommodating and made sure my stay was enjoyable! The house is very comfortable and quaint. Looking forward to coming back and staying here again in the summer to enjoy the lake and the area!

serene spot; relaxing weekend

  • 4 of 5

I and several family members stayed at this location for a weekend. The house is quite accommodating of large groups and is well stocked with all that you need. The back yard is very nice and has a wonderful view of the lake. The fire pit was a great hit!

Quiet and clean. Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while doing work in Geneva. It was nice coming back after a long day to clean place and quiet neighborhood. The view was nice and we enjoyed the fire pit just about every night.

What a great time we all had!

  • 5 of 5

The place was better then pictures can show. We had a great time and made some great memories. Barry made us feel at home. The complimentary wine was a nice touch. House was clean and welcoming, and the gazebo and fire pit were a huge hit for our party as we love the outdoors. We cooked outside and landscaping and lighting were beautiful at night. Thanks again and we will definitely be back!! :)

Very homey and cozy. Plenty of space for large groups.

  • 4 of 5

While not the fanciest of places to stay, it was one of the most enjoyable weekends I've ever had. The property was well kept and had everything we needed. The new fire pit with the view of seneca lake behind it was by far the best part. Thanks Barry for a memorable weekend.

Great weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

The house is located close to many wineries and is a short drive from Geneva. Our reason for being in the area was field hockey at William Smith College. We ere able to easily go back and forth as needed. The house suited the needs of my wife and 2 daughters perfectly. The sunrise over the lake was stunning. Overall very nice stay.
