Ultimate relaxation

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough about this peaceful retreat. The pictures do not do this place justice. It is more beautiful than the pictures show. This is the perfect place to sit back and relax with family. The owners are very friendly and maintain the property beautifully. A wonderful family! We enjoyed the bonfires at night with S'mores. The location is convenient to all the best the area has to provide. This is our first choice vacation spot when visiting the Finger Lakes! Sit back, pour yourself a glass of wine, and enjoy!

Wonderful family relaxation time!

We had a wonderful stay at Longview Guest Cottage, the Cottage is cute, very clean and just perfect for a week's stay. The view of the lake is amazing, we spent hours and hours each day relaxing on the beach. The walk in large beach front with small soft rocks was perfect to wade in the water or walk in to swim. Our kids enjoyed finding sea glass and swimming. Marla, Brad and Family were great hosts. We would definitely recommend this cottage. Also very close to a lot of great places Ithaca included!

Third Time at Longview

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I love this place very much. It is clean and we don't have to bring our own bedding and towels. That is a big plus for us. We swim, read, eat and stay at the cottage all week without once getting into a car. A place like that with that view, what more could we want. The owners are wonderful and make sure we have everything we need. Big screen tv was an added plus this year!!

Incredible views

  • 5 of 5
Spent the last part of our summer at Longview, and loved it. The cottage was impeccably clean (and air-conditioned, which was good because the temperature hit 90 the week we were there), and the view from the property was among the nicest we've ever seen in the Finger Lakes. Beach area was lovely--had smores by the beach almost every night. Owners (Marla and Brad) were a pleasure to deal with. Can't wait to visit again.
