Perfect Mini-Moon

  • 5 of 5
Where do I begin! This was the perfect location for a two night mini-moon after a busy wedding weekend in Maine. We had our two dogs with us so we needed a pet friendly home and wanted to be on a part of the lake that was a little less built up. The owners were amazing! Not only did they stay up and wait for us to arrive after 10pm but they supplied us with EVERYTHING we needed and LOVED the dogs even our young puppy who barked every time he saw them (with his tail-wagging of course)

The house was adorable, could comfortably with 2-3 couples. Clean, updated kitchen and bath, laundry and tv with cable if you needed it. Also wifi. Surrounding area had great little towns with hidden gem restaurants and it was close to all of the wineries on that lake and only a 15min drive to the larger seneca lake.

Did i mention the VIEWS!! Amazing, great dock and boat house to relax at, a beach area that was mostly small pebbles but the water was clear and clean.

Worth the stay, great people, and a great location!

Thank you for making our mini-moon so great!!
