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!

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.

Relaxing Atmoshere

  • 5 of 5

This house was a very nice place to stay. It was comfortable, both inside and out. We found it so easy to relax because the furniture was nice and comfy. We enjoyed swimming and fishing off the dock and even had a campfire one evening. The owner was quick to help us when we were having trouble with the cable connection. Overall, we had a wonderful stay at Forever Red! We hope to go back again!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Once again a terrific visit! Forever Red is a charming cottage with a breathtaking lake front view. The house truly feels like a home. It is always extremely clean, and exceeds all of our expectations for a weekend get away! The owners are extremely accommodating and helpful in every way. I have been coming here for 5 years and it never disappoints. I strongly recommend staying at Forever Red and I can't wait to go back!!

Beautiful cottage.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Simply Red. My three boys aged 12, 9, and 5 had a great time swimming off the dock. My oldest, my wife and I very much enjoyed using the kayaks. The cottage itself is much larger than it looks in the pictures and had everything we needed. Jen was very nice and easy to deal with. We like to fish and went on a chartered trip with John Gaulke and caught a number of lake trout. There was some bad weather while we were there so we spent that day at the nearby Montezuma Wildlife refuge and saw six bald eagles along with many other species of birds. There are grocery stores and other shopping very close by and the town of Seneca Falls is charming and right along the Erie canal. I recommend a trip to the locks to see how the canal works. Overall this was a wonderful vacation and we would certainly recommend it to anyone.

Nice Getaway

  • 3 of 5

This house was very nice. It it very comfortable and an easy place to relax! We enjoyed fishing, swimming off the dock, and having a campfire one evening. The owner was quick to help us when we couldn't get the cable to work and she was very helpful. One thing you may want to bring are lawn chairs to use around the fire. There were only 2 available. Overall a wonderful place!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments and for staying at Forever Red. Loved your idea about more chairs for sitting around the campfire. We got four chairs after reading your review in addition to the two chairs already available on the lower deck and four chairs on the upper deck.

Wine Trails + Forever Red = Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Spent the afternoon at the Cayuga/Seneca wineries then retired to Forever Red. Clean, comfy and charming. Had a very nice dinner up the street at the Deer Head Restaurant within walking distance. Would highly recommend for a winter weekend getaway, but can totally see what a fantastic summer vacation it would make. Dave & Sally.
