Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 7 Sleeps

Best spot on the lake!

Beautiful private property on its own point, located between Watkins Glen and Glenora, on the west side of beautiful Seneca lake.

One of the only private properties on this most centrally located and largest of the Finger Lakes, it is the ideal season rental (end of May-mid Oct,). Private drive ends at the cottage with its own point and beachfront.

Summer cabin Original, beach-level family cottage (set back amongst trees, with large, lawn area in front, going out to the shoreline), built in the 1960's, in unspoiled natural setting -

1,000 feet of shoreline, and 40 acres of private land with woods and ravines to yourself...

Rent by the week - 7 people max.

More info: This is a gracious simple cabin designed by Watkins Glen's physician, community leader, musician and artist from the 1940s through the 1970s - an era that saw the Grand Prix international race in its hey-day as well as the beginnings of the burgeoning New York wine industry, when visionary farmers introduced the Johannisburg Riesling grape to the soil on Seneca lake. The cabin stands as a reminder of the last milenium and also a peaceful get-away. The drinking water is u.v. filtered directly from the lake. Two generations later, we are very proud stewards of this beautiful property and are happy to keep the summer tradition of gathering, relaxing and family fun going.

This is a wonderful headquarter locale for day trips to any nearby fingerlakes attraction: winecountry tours, Watkins

Glen, Ithaca, Corning, or...a spacious retreat from it all.

Perfect for a family get-together or small, private party.

This summer we took a chance on this cottage for our annual guys getaway weekend and were completely suprised and blow away by how amazing this location turned out to be. For people that enjoy the outdoors (fishing, swimming, hiking, bonfires, etc) this is the perfect location for you. It is completely secluded, and there are no neighbors for what seems like miles on each side. You will not find a place with this much private land and lakefront beach access elsewhere on Seneca Lake.

The cabin itself is not luxurious, but is rustic and quite comfortable. It has all the amenities that you will need during your stay. Once you get to the cottage you will find that you will not spend very much time in the cabin itself, but rather outside enjoying property.

The best part out the property is the private point sticking out into the lake. The view is amazing, and we ended every night with a bonfire right on the point. The sunrise each morning was terrific. The brand new dock was a very nice (unexpected) upgrade as well. Although the water was a bit chilly (early June), it did get a lot of use.

If you are looking for a peaceful and quiet location surounded by nature, with great views, lake access and complete privacy, then I would recommend staying at this cottage.

Loveliest Lake Location!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay at this cottage on Seneca Lake! The beach area is extensive and includes a dock with a brand-new-in-2013 deck at the end and then several hundred feet of stony beach wrapping around a point. The beach is wonderful for children. There are no large rocks to maneuver around, and for nearly all of it, there are no immediate drop-offs. The lake is extremely clean and clear--unbelievably gorgeous. The cottage is in the woods set back from the lake a little bit. It is also just about at lake-level, so there are no cliffs or staircases to deal with between the cottage and the water. The cottage is roomy, clean, and comfortable and includes plenty of all of the necessary items and then a bit more. It is clearly a family vacation home that has been loved for many years, and it is a very welcoming place as a result. The owner and manager were both kind, helpful, and very accessible. If you are looking for a vacation at a true cottage on the lake that is in an extremely private, natural setting, Landsberg Cottage is perfect! For us, the setting itself was the biggest draw, but the cottage is also located on the same road as many local wineries and is just 6-7 miles outside of Watkins Glen, where ice cream shops abound, and you can find stores and restaurants in addition to the raceway and Watkins Glen State Park. The State Park has an absolutely awesome Gorge Walk/Hike not to be missed (for just $8 a carload per day in 2013!!).

If you're looking for luxury accomodations, this rental is not for you. But if you're interested in peace and quiet, beautiful views, lots of outdoor space, and absolute privacy, this is the only place to saty in the Finger Lakes. My husband and I brought our two sons (2 1/2 and 6 years old) for a week this past summer. The house was quite rustic but had everything we needed to be comfortable, but the property was unbelievable. We had to get used to the bugs (in and out of the house), but I don't think we could have had a better vacation anywhere else. My boys loved to play at the water's edge, fish off the dock, and dig in the shale on the beach. The hammock was a huge hit as was the fire pit. We roasted marshmallows at the water's edge almost every day. The house was in a great location, very close to a lot of great wineries and restuarnts, as well as downtown Watkins Glen; but once you drove down the long winding driveway, you felt like you were miles from anyone else. We loved our stay at the house and plan to return for years to come.

Pictures and words can not do justice to this cottage on the lake. Not only is it very very private, but you have a whole point to yourself on Seneca lake. If you are looking for a cottage that takes you back to nature but has everything that you need (washer and dryer ect.) then this is the place for you. It all starts with a mile and a half drive down to the cottage. The drive makes you feel like you are the only one that knows about this wonderful place. After you get down to the cottage you take a walk out to the lake, stand on the point and can not believe that all this is yours for a week. On the left side of the point is the perfect swimming area, no seaweed and there aren't any drop offs, so for kids it is perfect. The owners take care of everything, gas for the grill, sheets, blankets, towels, toilet paper, papertowels, soaps, everything you can think of. It is like staying in a rustic hotel. If you want to make memories that will last a lifetime, rent this cottage. Relaxation at its best.
