Great getaway on Seneca Lake
The parking situation was a little tricky at times with two large vehicles as there is a narrow driveway and although we had no issues with the stairs, they could be problematic for older folks or those with disabilities..
I would highly recommend this lakehouse as a great getaway with family or friends.
Willow Point Lakeside Cottage Seneca Lake
This cottage was as described in the listing. It was furnished accordingly as listed. The cottage was clean and well appointed. The kitchen and bathrooms appeared to be newly remolded.
The pull-out couch is not suitable for sleeping (most are not) - a teenager slept on the couch not pulled out.
There is a concrete dock (lower) at the end of a wooden dock, however, no stairs from one to the other making it difficult to get up and down from dock to dock.
The wireless internet connection is not good and can only be accessed in a few areas within the cottage.
To get to the cottage you must drive down a 1/2 mile dirt road. The parking for this cottage is not good - very difficult to access & turn around.
The access from parking area to cottage is TERRIBLE. From your car there is an approximate 20' dirt path leading to STEEP wooden stair case. You must walk down approximately 30 steep wooden stairs to get to cottage. They are not very well lit at night and VERY SLIPPERY when it has rained. One teenager staying in the house slipped during the rain and fell on her back. My 7 month pregnant wife had serious difficulty managing these stairs. The parking and stair situation was not mentioned in the description. People with any physical issues SHOULD NOT consider renting this property. Due to the stairs only able bodied people should consider. Older persons, pregnant women and very small children would have great difficulty with these stairs.
One the first day of our stay the refrigerator handle broke off. It was not secured properly in my opinion and would have broken at any given time (typical wear & tear). The property owner withheld $25.00 from our security deposit for this.
Summary - this is a NICE cottage. Clean and as described in the listing. It is in a good location with regards to Watkins Glen and wineries. I would rate the cottage itself as a #4 GOOD. The issues with the parking & stairs is something that should seriously be considered before renting. Those issues alone I would rate a #1 POOR to #2 FAIR.
