"This place won't disappoint you. The house is clean and very comfortable. The furniture is not your usual seedy cottage furniture, the floors are decent/clean and the window coverings are a notch above the usual. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and starter supplies. I loved the screened in porch, There were many places to sit and eat including two places on the deck, one on the lawn and two places in the house.
Sally and Bob were great to work with, very responsive and friendly. I had to call them twice about two questions I had and they returned calls promptly. Sally was also kind enough to meet us to allay our apprehension about the whip moorings. The dock is very sturdy, not your usual rickety structure like at some lake houses. The docking system for the boat was easy to use. Additional instructions about the whip moorings and the whole house are included in a very informative manual provided by Sally and Bob.
The house is on the quiet end of the lake, right on the water. It is an easy paddle in the provided kayaks to the canals, that offer great birdwatching and fishing. We even sighted two American Bald eagles. Always a thrill.
It was very enjoyable to sit on the glider on the lawn to take in the view and a few naps! The sunsets were stunning. The water was warm and clear for swimming. Just note, the seaweed was moving in, making it harder to swim, We had floats so it was fine. Just get past them and relax on your float. AND those very same weeds provide cover for the great fishing right off the dock! If fishing is your thing, Cananadaigua is the right place to be and this house gives you quick and easy access as the free boat launch is directly across the lake.
In summary, this house is owned and operated by a hospitable couple interested in your vacation experience. The house is clean and comfortable. It is evident Sally and Bob are trying hard to provide a relaxing and memorable experience. We most certainly will be back!
LS and NS."
