About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
Stayed for a weekend. Weather was iffy, but the proximity of Whitby was great for dinner and wineries. The fireplace was great, and the rooms were larger than we thought. Loved the openness of the main living area and kitchen! Would stay again in a minute!

Great family vacation!
first, second and third time's a charmfirst, second and third time's a charm
We go-carted in Penn Yan, visited Garrett Chapel on the Bluff, boated to the Switz for lunch and Lakeside for dinner, walked a gorgeous gorge, tubed, wakeboarded, fished (and ate a great fish dinner - get your temporary license, totally worth the $), wine tasted, antiqued at Wild Goose Chase on the hill, shopped for gifts and ate and had ice cream in Hammondsport. We enjoyed the stars and the fire pit and laughed and soaked up the beautiful weather and view of the bluff.
We had one small issue with the grill (first issue ever) and it was taken care of within 12 hours by our terrific caretaker! (basically overnight)
Charming, Relaxing, Beautiful, Comfortable, so many wonderful memories made at Whitby!
I gush....I have never met the owners but would love to toast them with a glass of Finger Lakes Wine! Cheers!
A memorable week
