Guestbook comments from the owner

Vacationed with family to see the wine country around the Finger Lakes in late August 2014. The trip was above and beyond what I expected and staying at Laura's house contributed greatly to that experience. We took advantage of all the "extras" such as the hot tub, fire pit, canoe/kayak, etc. Each night we watched the beautiful sunsets over Cayuga Lake and they were spectacular. Each time we had questions Laura was ready with a quick answer which was comforting. She also provided suggestions for wineries, restaurants, shopping and the like which was so helpful. If only we had more time to visit them all. Her place is the nicest in the neighborhood, IMHO, and I would not hesitate to stay again.

Amazing View and Great Location on Cayuga Lake

  • 4 of 5

My family and a close friend's family bn recently spent 9 days in this beautiful house on Cayuga Lake. The location is perfect and the owners and caretakers are very receptive to any issues. We also rented a boat which I highly recommend. It was our first time to the Finger Lake region and it was great. The house is close to many wineries, the cities of Auburn and Aurora, the wildlife area of Montezuma and a bunch of walking trails. We had a very relaxing and fun vacation that our kids will member for a lifetime.

About the house, the owner has thought of everything. We did not have to bring sheets, towels, many spices, coffee filters, paper products, etc. She even has a garden out front the we were told to use. We picked tomatoes, chard, cucumbers, zucchini, plus any herb you could imagine.

Had a wonderful Thanksgiving at Wise Owl Landing

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful property. The home was meticulously cared for, had everything we could have wanted or needed for our stay including cooking a full Thanksgiving dinner, and the outside scenery is just breathtaking!

Laura, our hostess, was more than accommodating leaving us with fresh flowers and a nice bottle of wine upon our arrival :-)

If you're looking for a place in the finger Lakes, I would highly recommend you consider wise owl landing!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Wise Owl was a fantastic choice for our Ladies weekend! The house is very cozy and the charmingly decorated. The kitchen had an ample supply of any pot, pan or appliance you might need (including a bread maker and slow cooker). The bathrooms were stocked with plenty of towels as well as hotel sizr soaps and shampoos. The outside area is great - a fire pit, hot tub, plenty of seating for all. When we arrived, the hot tub was nice and warm, all ready for us and a local bottle of wine was waiting for us on the counter!

We truly enjoyed our stay at Wise Owl and would recommend it to anyone looking for relaxing getaway!

Beautiful View - Adorable House!

  • 4 of 5

The house was so lovely when we walked in! It was cozy and had many amenities! Everything was decently cleaned, the door to the downstairs bathroom didn't lock, they came late at night to fix it but it actually still didn't lock. The stairs to the outside patio were a little uneven and the dock had a very uneven segment. We really appreciated being welcomed to a bottle of wine and later some delicious cookies. The owners are very friendly. There was a rather disturbing sewage smell that they did try to attend to, i'm not sure any of us, including them understood why, but they did their best to handle it, i am still waiting for a small compensation regarding the matter. I absolutely recommend this property, other than the smell some days, which i think just was a random bad experience, i would 100% stay here again! Loved the hot tub, kayaks, canoe, picturesque view, nearby waterfall, grocery stores nearby, and many amenities inside for when it rained some of the days. If your looking for a cozy retreat, Id look no further.
