This was our second stay at this cottage and what I said before still holds! The cottage is clean and stocked with all we needed. I think this time I commented to my husband that this is the way I would prepare a rental...everything we needed! Thanks so much for sharing and we'll probably be back again - as soon as possible! Again, it was raining when we left. That may have been the only way to get me away from that view!! See you again soon!
Quite, peaceful, clean, wonderful views of the lake
This is a great house with a great view. Everything you might need is provided by the hosts,all details are considered. Very organized, clean hosts. The outside is not safe for little kids- it will be good to mention it when advertising the house. There is no fence at the yard and the lake level is very low, so you can not let little ones play outside.other than this safety issue, every thing is great at this house.
Beautiful view and very cozy!
We’ve stayed at many VRBO homes and we’ve never been in a place more inviting and stocked!! Thank you so much for all the things that you supplied! The view was beautiful and we even got a chance to see snow fall over the lake. It was magical! My girls enjoyed sitting in front of the picture window while watching movies. The house is situated in the perfect location for all the amenities the area has to offer. We would love to return but if it doesn’t happen we will remember the Garden Cottage fondly!!
The May Family
Finger Lakes Find
We visited this fall for a long weekend in the Finger Lakes. This three bedroom cottage on Senaca Lake is perfectly located for seeing many local attractions including wineries, breweries and State parks. The Owner provided helpful suggestions on local resturants and made our visit special by adding complementary flowers and wine for our arrival. Clean and well furnished, it feels more like home than most rentals. It is both cozy and spacious at the same time. Well furnished if you want to eat in and all the entertainment amenities you would expect for nites at home. Three thumbs up from our family - John, Micki and JC.
Great owners, and great cottage with beautiful lake views!
Great cottage with beautiful lake views.
I have been traveling to the finger lakes for about a decade. The garden cottage offered the best in location, scenery, and furnishings. The welcome bottle of wine was thoughtful and wonderful after a 7 hour drive. Will absolutely book again when we return!
