We stayed here with my boyfriends three adult daughters and it was a perfect fit for us. The location was quiet and private and tucked away right below a scenic overlook and that was our view for our entire stay. Sunrise comes up over the mountain every morning with the wrap around porch and the lake view what more could you ask for. The house had everything you can imagine. The girls had their own section of the house with three bedrooms and a full bath and we had the loft. The only thing I would mention is the loft is very open and bright so if you need darkness to sleep I would choose one of the bedrooms. There is a full bath in the loft with pocket doors but there is no ceiling so sound sort of travels if it’s quiet. There is every little detail thought of from turbie twist towels for you hair to extra toothbrushes if you forgot on ..thoughtful little touches. And they left us an amazing treat ..which I meant to ask them where they got it.
There were deer that would come visit in the morning and the evening which added to the view.
Oh and the dining table which is not pictured in the listing is beyond incredible it was a live edge wood table with a bench on either side ..gorgeous with plenty of seating ..easily fit 5 or 6 people on either side.
We picked this location because it was halfway in between Letchworth state park and Watkins Glen and slightly further to Ithaca and a million waterfalls and state parks all scattered in between. The drive to Watkins Glen area was a treat in itself because it is a mini version of Amish country which we loved. There is a section where the entire road is beautiful wineries, breweries and we even saw a cidery. Grist Iron Brewing Company Was our favorite and the food there was beyond delicious too ... nice surprise for a brewery
Lots to do if you like the outdoors. Just a note there is no WiFi at the house..not a big deal for us we weren’t there for the internet but bring a hot spot if this is a must for you. And we had T-Mobile and Verizon for cell service and never had any issues. There is a DVD player so you could bring movies and games and the yard is huge . The tv had all the movies channels as well.
This house was the perfect choice for us and we are already recommending it to our friends.
We absolutely loved our stay at this cottage! It was everything we were hoping for for a few days away. Beautiful views right on the water. House is equipped with everything you could need to cook a meal. Also supply fishing gear and kayaks. Christina was so helpful answering any questions we had immediately. It was absolutely wonderful. Were hoping to make this cottage our new yearly tradition!
