Wonderful, welcoming, and convenient

  • 4 of 5

Up for a college graduation weekend, this was a great way to have multiple generations of family staying together. We were sad our time in the cottage and being lakeside was so limited, but were so glad to have a welcoming and relaxing place we could all spend time together. Paul and Maxine were understanding of all our comings and goings and checked in on us to make sure we were set for the weekend. The cottage was extremely clean and orderly as well. Location was great as we could visit a vineyard and gorges and it was a straight shot down to Ithaca. Thanks so much for having us!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind review! We do take great pride in having a clean welcoming cottage in a family setting so that folks have nothing to worry about or do except having a great time. We certainly enjoyed having your family next door and are so happy you were appreciative! We hope to see you again at some point in time!! Maxine and Paul

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! We do love our spot on Cayuga Lake with no steps to the water, near wineries and so much else. Basically, we love to interact with renters, but never want to be intrusive. Many have become personal friends over the years, but enjoy letting renters enjoy their private, personal space. Most of all, it's your vacation to enjoy!

Summer Vacation Stay

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. The house was very clean (inside) and roomy. The lake was gorgeous! We swam or kayaked every evening. The owners next door were friendly and helpful. The only problem I had was with the air conditioning. The description said that there is a one room air conditioner but nothing else is needed. We found this to be false. The house became very warm on several days and we stayed in mid June. I would be hesitant to stay here in mid summer with warmer temperatures.

Owner's Response: As a landlord, and occasional renter ourselves, we value any input we get. In our welcoming letter we tell all renters, if there is a problem, to please let us know so we can and will act immediately before the problem becomes an issue. As for the air conditioner, we had an unusual warm June temperature wise. We are next to a large creek gorge, with cool air coming down the creek every night, as well as being next to the cool Cayuga Lake water. These both provide us a natural air conditioner! However, we never heard any complaint from this renter at the time. We do have a room air conditioner that only fits in one window due to window construction. With the doors open and some fans on, this has always seemed to cool the house down. We can supply more fans if needed. Otherwise, I thought we had a good relationship with this renter, and strive for this every time. Best regards!
