vacation rental description

Google "Red Creek Cottage" for our website.

Red Creek Cottage is an immaculate and cozy three-bedroom, two-story cottage on the western shore of Seneca Lake 13 miles north of Watkins Glen, 22 miles south of Geneva, and 13 miles east of neighboring Keuka Lake.
With 200 feet of lake frontage, a stream bed with a drawbridge, and a couple acres of woods behind, our cottage is the perfect retreat where you can feel surrounded by nature and truly relax with family and friends. 
It has a large sunny yard where you can sit back with a book or a glass of wine from one of the wineries down the road; a large shale beach (shale is smooth, flat rocks of various sizes), an outdoor dining table w/ umbrella seating 6, a large picnic table seating 8, many lounge chairs, gas barbeque grill, fire pit, two canoes, fishing gear, life jackets, a badminton and volleyball set and other recreational equipment. The water is shallow a long way out (great for young children), with deeper water, too, for older kids and adults.
If you don't want to lie in the sun, you can relax in the shade of the yard's mature trees (a large willow, maples, firs, birches, a redbud). There are usually no mosquitoes because of the breeze and the purple martins.
Please see the "Amenities" section for a complete list of our indoor amenities.

traveler reviews for this seneca lake cottage rental

Nice Private spot!

Review submitted: August 3, 2010   Date of arrival: July 24, 2010

Don't bring anything with you! This place has everything you need.

We had a cook-out every night and ate by the lakefront. The kids swam in the lake as we enjoyed the amazing view.

The cottage was just as described on the web site.

We may come back again it was so nice!

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, sight seeing, romantic getaway
