About The Owner

I love of travel and want to share my home with fellow adventurers. I try to provide the amenities and space that I would like to have when I travel.

Why The Owner chose Finger Lakes

This spot is magical to me. There is an ever changing landscape that always offers something magnificent and memorable- be it an eagle fishing, weather changes, laughter....

What makes this cottage unique

The house is right on the water. Swimming, kayaking, coffee on the dock or deck is only steps away. And the sunrises...!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the opportunity to enjoy a fun and relaxing weekend at my favorite home away from home. We had fun at the wineries, walking, eating at Worlfies and the Deer Head and playing cards at the high top table. We even had an awesome midnight thunder and lightening storm and saw a shooting star * Thank you!

Wonderful Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family & I had a wonderful week at Forever Red. The cottage is very clean & comfortable with everything you could possibly need. My two daughters loved having the kayaks & went out early every morning to catch the sunrise. My 5 yr old grandson loved swimming in the lake & was delighted to catch his first fish off the dock. It was also nice having the beach & playground just down the road within walking distance for him. We also enjoyed playing some of the many games in the evening that are provided, especially Scrabble & Yahtzee.

Jennifer is extremely nice & accommodating. She is very easy to reach if you need anything or have a problem. Thank you Jennifer for sharing Forever Red with us & we hope to return again soon. I would absolutely recommend staying here.

Cozy, comfortable, and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Forever Red. The house was sized perfectly for our family of 2 adults and 2 teens. It was easy to access the lake for recreation (kayaks) and we enjoyed several campfires at the firepit. The deck was great for relaxing and watching the moon come up over the lake. Having a state park with beach and the Deerhead Restaurant within walking distance was very convenient. When added to the attractions in the area, it was a perfect spot for a lake vacation.

Perfect and relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Forever Red. It's right on the lake with breathtaking views, and rooms are very clean with everything we need. It has exceeded our expectation, the cottage and the view are much better than the picture. We used kayak and there were also a lot of fishes in the lake and you can just fish at the dock. We did grill for two nights and enjoyed wine and steak on the deck, enjoying the lake view. It was very relaxing and we all enjoyed very much.

We also went to two wineries, Knapp and Bellhurst. The restaurant at Knapp is probably the best around the area, the food is delicious. Bellhurst has very nice view and great wine testing choices.

It was also a pleasure dealing with Jennifer. She's very considerate and responded to emails quickly. The weather got really hot, Jennifer is very considerate and kept checking with us to see whether we are comfortable or if we need anything. We had a great stay. Thank you Jennifer.
