Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit at Bev & Dick's and we happily return every year. The cottage is spacious, clean, relaxing and beautifully furnished. The deck has plenty of room, privacy and an inspiring view of the lake. Add to that the back porch for escaping the sun, the perfect sunsets in the evening and enough DVDs and books to last the summer. All the best restaurants & wineries are a short drive away. Love it all!!

Sister's Time Away

  • 5 of 5

This lovely lake house is not only clean and comfortable but the views are amazing. The owner treated us like family. We had everything that we needed so we just needed to show up with groceries. Special thanks to our hosts for allowing us to enjoy the few days we spent touring wineries and hiking in the Seneca area without worry. It was like home and we'll definitely be back!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is the perfect getaway! The house is not only beautiful, it is clean, comfortable, great location and so well equipped with everything you could ever need or want. Our days were spent on the dock enjoying beautiful Seneca Lake, or taking in some of the great Finger Lakes wineries, that happen to be very closely located. We didn’t miss an evening going out on the deck and enjoying the gorgeous sunsets! The village of Watkins Glen is nearby where we took some time to hike Watkins Glen State Park. Amazing! Bev and Dick were wonderful! They made everything seem so simple. You couldn’t meet two nicer people. You know as soon as you walk in the door that they take great pride in this place, and want their guest to feel at home. We can’t wait to go back!

The perfect getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous A-frame home perched on the East side of Seneca Lake was the perfect getaway spot for my husband and I. Nothing beat sitting on their private deck for coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening while watching the sunset. The house is very clean, beautifully decorated and stocked with everything you would have in your own house. We really appreciated the plush towels and cozy linens at the end of the day. The location was perfect for us as we ventured out to wineries and restaurants during the day. Also, the village of Watkins Glen is just a short drive. I would definitely recommend this home and we will surly be back for another stay.

The house was incredible, and the owners had it stocked very well with everything we needed. They were responsive when we had a question, and they were very nice.

Relaxing Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was extremely clean and well-kept. The fireplace was nice to have since it was cool weekend! Very peaceful and relaxing setting! After visiting the wineries during the day, we returned to the house to relax. Since it was a very rainy weekend-it may have been nice to have cable or internet access; however, the DVDs and stereo helped! The view of Seneca Lake is perfect, and the rear deck was ideal to sip a morning coffee on and take in the view! I would return and also recommend to others.
