Enjoy swimming in refreshing clean water.

The large kitchen is well equipped with any /everything one might need to make the most elaborate meal-and/or a microwave for reheating leftovers from one of the great local winery restaurants!

Charming Cottage overlooking Seneca Lake- East Side, Beautiful Sunsets
Location, location, location

This charming Adirondack style cottage is ideally situated on Lake Seneca. Let's start with the fact that the house comes with a waterfall! You walk across a wooden bridge over it to get to the front door. The house is located about a quarter mile down a gravel drive from the main road, so you don't hear any traffic. The cottage itself is rustic chic and well-furnished. It feels more like a family home than a vacation rental. Outside, wooden steps lead down to a pebble beach, where there are lounges and chairs. The dock is generously sized and seems fairly new. We spent almost every evening on the back porch watching the sun set over the lake. If you want an authentic lake house experience, this is your chance.

Quiet area, charming cottage and serene views

Quiet area, charming cottage and serene views on the private dock made for a fabulous get-away for us. Enjoyed the separate areas to use such as the back room for games, kitchen for eating and the family room for movies! Plenty of places to choose from for sleeping too. My favorite feature was the hammock. I spend many afternoons lounging in it while I ready! Thank you Adrian for allowing me, my husband, daughter and son-in-law into your home.

Beautiful location on Seneca Lake with private pier and beach

The views from the house deck were serene and magical at sunset. This was the perfect retreat away from it all in the woods on the water, but also so close to the cute town of Watkins Glen. The house is adorable and tastefully decorated. The kitchen was fully stocked with every kitchen tool we could have ever needed. It was great having two full bathrooms for our group of three. We enjoyed using the grill next to the house, but especially chilling on the pier for hours basking in the sun and enjoying the views. Adrian was the perfect host--very communicative and helpful for our every need. We can't wait to book another stay!

Fabulous Cottage

We stayed a week with our cat. The cottage was immaculate and very comfortable. The setting was great....quiet and peaceful. The location was wonderful. Lots of wineries and nice restaurants close by. Watkins Glen was only 10 minutes from the property. Adrian was very responsive to any questions we had. We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful vacation!

This property is magical. It feels like stepping back in time to the vacations of my childhood. Every detail of this home was thoughtfully curated. Adrian is beyond an amazing host. And the location is perfectly situated. We can’t wait to come back again.

Rustic family vacation

We enjoyed our stay with with our family dog and definitely enjoyed the water in this Rustic and cozy turn of the century cottage. The last two days were a bit hot for a couple of our elderly family members, but we managed. Great location!

Cozy, charming cottage on Seneca Lake

We really enjoyed staying here on a last minute getaway with our dogs and teenage girls. The cottage suited us well. We are an athletic family and love the water. It’s located in a perfect setting right on Seneca Lake with gorgeous views, a dock and and gorgeous pebble beach. It is also next to a beautiful stream with small waterfalls. I found this old cottage charming and interesting and had some of the best sleep listening to the beautiful sounds of nature. We loved having our dogs with us and enjoyed seeing our girls put down their phones and enjoy nature. The cottage is conveniently located about 5 minutes away from Watkins Glen and great wineries. There were many comforts provided by the owner that made us feel at home. That being said, this may not be as perfect for everyone as it was for us. It is an old cottage that could use some additional work and you must be agile to stay here but we loved it.

Lovely cottage right on Seneca Lake. Great host, terrrific dock for swimming, and gorgeous sunsets

Cottage is built at the turn of the last century and has a lot of history and character. The house is not only on the lake but there is a small gorge going down next to the house which keeps it cool and means there’s a sound of gurgling water in addition to the lapping Lake makes for a great sleeping Our favorite place was the back porch overlooking the lake. It is perfect for reading, breakfast, and watching the sunset. The beach is also lovely a perfect flat stone beach with lots of privacy and a great dock. The water was cold but we swim every day. I highly recommend it especially to families
