BOOKING 2019 - NEW guest bookings begin on 10/1, allowing our PAST guests first opportunity.
Enjoy your vacation at our lovingly restored Lake Front Turn of the Century Victorian Cottage on idyllic Silver Lake.
The Finger Lakes are comprised of 10 lakes, if there were 11; Silver Lake would be the extra pinkie on the Western End
Silver Lake is nestled in the rolling hills of Wyoming County, NY. The lake is 4 miles long, a mile wide and known for good fishing so don’t forget your poles
This cottage boasts 3 covered porches, plenty of outdoor dining and seating along with indoor & outdoor fireplaces. There is also a boat lift available if you bring your own boat (6.5' wide, 2,000 lb).
At Days end enjoy your favorite beverage watching the incredible Sunsets…no two are alike
An old fashion vacation with a step back in time
Although built around 1900, the home has been extensively rebuilt and restored, including all new bathrooms, kitchen, bar-room, 3 porches, indoor & outdoor fireplaces and refinished floors throughout.
A truly unique part of the ‘east’ side of the lake is the right of way walkway between the houses and lake, which until 40+ years ago had been a narrow gauge railroad. This walkway takes you along the lake to the while getting to know the neighbors and and enjoying family time exercise.
Relax with an evening fire at one of the 2 fireplaces or with a bon fire lakeside with the portable firepit. Plenty of wood available.
Hope you like music, there is a great stereo on the 1st floor with 5 sets of speaker (3 outdoor), extensive (oldies) CD library and hookup for your ipod, iphone, ipad or other MP3 player. Additional surround sound system on 3rd floor.
All the bedrooms boast ceiling fans, along with the living room and bar room.
The ‘7th’ bedroom is actually the 3rd floor of the house we fondly refer to as: The Orphanage (also known as: Crow’s Nest, Adam’s Attic or Astro Lounge) Has 4 distinct areas, main room with large ‘L’ shaped couch and other seating, bed area with 4 'full size' beds creating a camp like setting, additional sitting area over looking the lake with large couch and 4 other chairs, and finally a full bath / shower. This area is a favorite with the kids (and sometimes the guys) to get away and enjoy the views and their own surround sound stereo.
We have renovated to be very family oriented, with the bedrooms, orphanage, flow, porches, etc.. Until our renting this year, we also did not have a TV or internet (it's does now), and spent time catching up with family with games, music and enjoying what the house, community and area has to offer. It's been over 14 years and we have not tired of it, and is still a favorite for our families to gather, and hope it becomes one for your family too.
Dogs &/or cats must first discuss with owners, and if agreed there is a $50 fee per pet.
Please no event gatherings, due to close friendships and proximity to our neighbors.
BOOKING - Thank you everyone for this year, we again have an almost full booking from late spring till we close in late October.
2018 - For peak summer months, our returning guests have fully booked July & August. May - June and Sept - Oct are also beautiful times to visit.
Thank you to our guests over the past 7 years and your input for improvements. In the past couple years we have new docks, refrigerator, dishwasher, stove, coffee maker, gas grill and associated other beds, outside seating and decorations and continue to improve.
You will also notice not being able to automatically book. We have found that having a quick conversation helps both of us to answer any questions you may have, before making such a large commitment.
