Overlook Cottage - West Side of Seneca Lake
We Look Forward to Returning!

We had the most wonderful vacation at the cottage! My husband, daughter (3-year old), and I were able to stay for just over a week and it was such a gift. My daughter loved climbing down to the shoreline, and playing by and in the water. We enjoyed kayaking, and the lake was gorgeous. I keep thinking about the sunsets in the mornings. We were grateful for a simple space to land that offers the best of nature. Thank you!

Stayed July, 2023

So glad to meet you and your family! We hope you can return next year!

Overlook Cottage - West Side of Seneca Lake
Overlook Cottage is relaxing, beautiful, and perfect!

Parents and teen loved it! Host’s warm welcome, spotlessly clean cottage, everything was so easy & wonderful. Great kayaks, lake, campfires, and near great restaurants and wineries! It was wonderful to be surrounded by nature and get away from it all, especially after this challenging year. This was our first time renting a cottage and the host had everything so well organized, and was kind and helpful, making the trip effortless and relaxing; perfect vacation and getaway! Our teen kept saying, “I love it here!” We’ve been home two weeks and miss it immensely– we can’t wait to come back next year!

Stayed July, 2021

We love that you, DH, and David have been able to stay with us!
July 2022: So glad you were able to return!
July 2023: We really appreciate you and your family returning, Rebecca!

Overlook Cottage - West Side of Seneca Lake
Overlook Cottage is peaceful and relaxing!

This isn’t an easy time for anyone, but staying at Overlook Cottage was exactly the break I needed. The cottage is immaculate and the setting was everything I hoped it would be – wooded, quiet, with Seneca Lake right there. The screened-in porch was the highlight of my stay, and even with all the wonderful attractions just minutes away (Watkins Glen State Park, amazing wineries and FLX Wienery) it was hard to leave the cottage. I was provided helpful information and that made it a truly relaxing getaway.

Stayed August, 2020

Yes, this is a challenging time -- I'm glad our little cottage allowed you to get some much needed down-time. Hope you can visit when life is a little less stressful!

Overlook Cottage - West Side of Seneca Lake
Overlook is Summer Bliss!

We were lucky and got our dream cabin last minute, since somebody else had to cancel (this is our second time staying here). The cabin is very functional and cozy. It was also spotlessly clean and provided everything we needed. The private beach (where we could use our Stand-Up Paddling Boards) was outstanding. We used the fireplace, watched the stars and had a fantastic week that felt like a month’s holiday. The cabin is close to nice wineries, restaurants and hikes.

Stayed August, 2019

So glad you and P. could visit with us once again!!!

Overlook Cottage - West Side of Seneca Lake
Perfect!

My partner and I recently spent a wonderful week and this cabin and I can’t recommend it highly enough. It is so remote that it couldn’t be a more private little haven, surrounded by the woods on one side and the lake on the other. Everything we could possibly need was stocked in the kitchen (it had for more utensils and things than my kitchen at home!) and I don’t think we really found ourselves wanting for anything that we didn’t have. The place is surrounded by wineries on either side (the closest is literally a two minute drive away). We sampled some of their wares and they were delicious. The hot days were spend swimming in the lake or sitting on the end of the pier or skimming stones. One day, it rained and you might think that was a bad thing for a holiday but sitting out on the screened porch and listening to the rain and watching it fall in the forest was the most wonderful thing. I would highly recommend this cabin. The owners have really thought of everything and were an absolute pleasure to deal with. We hope to return next year.

Stayed September, 2016

Thank you for your kind words! Hope you can make it back!

Overlook Cottage - West Side of Seneca Lake
Charming lakefront cabin in the woods!

This was definitely a fun and memorable place to stay in the Finger Lakes. The cabin has the basic, modern essentials – and the owner’s comprehensive list helped us plan what extras to bring. We made full use of the lake – swimming during the day, campfire at night, and sitting on the pier for a late afternoon snack. And, of course, the grill and screened in porch were much enjoyed as well. It’s also wonderful how secluded you feel at the cabin, but wineries and restaurants (FLX Wienery, yum!) are an easy 10-15 min drive away.

Stayed August, 2016

So glad you enjoyed your stay!

Overlook Cottage - West Side of Seneca Lake
Fun and relaxation-A place for memory making

Overlook Cottage quickly won our hearts and became our go-to vacation spot for 5 years now!! LOVE the simple, quiet effect this place has on my family! The porch is wonderful during warm weather as well as rainstorms, like a secret hidden tree house. Lake Seneca itself is just serene! So much to do and see in the whole area as well but if you’re like us, your stay mostly happens at the lake!

Stayed July, 2016

We love our returning guests (and now, friends!) :-)

A Relaxing Getaway

My husband and I spent an enjoyable and very relaxing 2 night/3 day stay at Overlook Cottage this past June. With the lake below us and the woods all around, the cabin was surrounded by nature and wildlife. We saw herons, heard owls and other birds, watched the sunset, heard distant thunder and rain, and just listened to the quiet. It was so peaceful and relaxing! The cottage itself was comfortable, spotless and well equipped. The screened in porch was a huge hit – I didn’t want to leave it! We loved our stay and are looking forward to our next visit!

Stayed June, 2014

We're so glad you and your DH could make it for your anniversary!
