About The Owner

I love of travel and want to share my home with fellow adventurers. I try to provide the amenities and space that I would like to have when I travel.

Why The Owner chose Seneca Falls

This spot is magical to me. There is an ever changing landscape that always offers something magnificent and memorable- be it an eagle fishing, weather changes, laughter....

What makes this cottage unique

The house is right on the water. Swimming, kayaking, coffee on the dock or deck is only steps away. And the sunrises...!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the opportunity to enjoy a fun and relaxing weekend at my favorite home away from home. We had fun at the wineries, walking, eating at Worlfies and the Deer Head and playing cards at the high top table. We even had an awesome midnight thunder and lightening storm and saw a shooting star * Thank you!

Great house,amazing views.....

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two kids and I had a wonderful time at Forever Red. The house was clean,comfortable and the view was just gorgeous! The owner was a pleasure to deal with and answered any questions promptly. We swam,fished,kayaked and visited some local sights. The house is close to the town of Seneca Falls which made it convenient to get to the grocery store,Walmart etc. We only made it to one winery-Thirsty Owl but it was a wise choice! We would definitely rent this house again and next time visit a few more wineries!

Beautiful home, convenient yet peaceful setting A+

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week at forever red. Our family of 5 (including 3 teenagers) had more than enough room to spread out, be together, and get a little down time. The kitchen had absolutely everything we needed for cooking. Notably the coffee pot has a permanent filter so we didn’t have to worry about filters.

The living space is roomy and comfortable and the sunroom is a great spot for meals it just hanging out and staring at the lake. The dock/beach area is awesome as are the kayaks. We enjoyed fires in the outdoor fire pit and evenings by the water.

This was our second visit, hopefully with more in the future. Owners are friendly and available for questions. Again the only downside to staying here is.... leaving!

Beautiful, relaxing cottage ON the lake! Can't wait to come back

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Forever Red Cottage while in Seneca Falls to attend my niece's graduation from New York Chiropractic College. It was a busy weekend of attending parties and visiting with family and being able to come "home" to this perfect cottage after being in the hustle and bustle of family was just what we needed. The house is even nicer than the pictures show, and the lake view is amazing. We visited in December so it was chilly out, but the house was warm and inviting. The beds were comfortable; the kitchen was well stocked; the parking was easy; and the location on the lake couldn't be better.

It was really wonderful to be able to wake up and see the lake in the morning-I just couldn't take enough pictures of the sunrise, and we got to see the "super moon" over the lake as well. The only thing that wasn't perfect is that we had to come home!!!

We also loved the games at the house and Jennifer's beautiful photography throughout. She was also very prompt in returning our security deposit, which is especially appreciated at this time of year.

Can't wait to visit again-already planning a summer stay at Forever Red-Thank you Jennifer for sharing your beautiful home.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

This place was great for us. When the weather was nice we spent a lot of time on the upper deck. When it rained we went to the covered lower deck. Nice sitting area near the lake around the fire pit, bass caught right from the dock, kayaking in the morning. It had everything we needed.

Very comfortable, great location

  • 4 of 5

Loved the main areas of the house, particularly loved sitting on the upper deck and at the fire pit. Bedrooms were very comfortable. A little disappointed with the general upkeep and cleanliness of the non-main areas. If we had wanted to use any of the water equipment, we'd would have had to do some cleaning. Looked like much had not be used or maintained in quite awhile. BUT we would definitely consider going back.
