Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This place was great, and offered everything we needed for a fun week of grilling, swimming, camp firing, and relaxing. The view from the deck (which went around 3 sides of the building!) was phenomenal, and the lake is great to swim in. Very secluded, so nobody was bothering us at all throughout our stay.

The stairs down to the lake were a bit of a climb, but the destination was worth every one of the 65 steps. And they did tell us right up front in the description, so we were ready for them. The only down side was the road in, but that was also described by them in advance. Make sure you take the right road in the fork though to get to the actual property, as the GPS makes it look like you should take the left road. There is a small sign saying to go right, but we got in late at night and didn't see it until the next morning, so we had to make the two road 4x4 trek an extra time. Still worth it!

Great place overall, and we'll likely be staying there again.

Little gem in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

Sweet place! Cabin is very charming! Driveway is a challenge, but well maintained and monitored by owners. If you think your workout routine will suffer, you can get plenty of cardio on the steps to the lake. Views are breathtaking! Great find!

Great little Cabin

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was great wish I was still there. It was very clean, sleeps 6 (it's 2 rooms with windows in between so there isn't a private bedroom unless you are alone of course). The Owner was helpful. There is a large deck and a dock below which we enjoyed very much. You can even have Kayaks delivered if staying a few days or longer but it rained too much while we were there. The private road to the house is very bumpy but you get the hang of it after a few times. The cabin was private, but there was a boat house below the main house which wasn't used while we were there but if you want complete privacy you may want to ask if it will be used during your stay there. There were many many wineries, there are also many parks for hiking we went to Watkins Glen State Park to see all the waterfalls it was awesome. If you need some R&R and outdoor fun this is a great little place!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. Just to mention our lake road can be rough and we have been aggressively working alot on it this season. We have accomplished a lot. Thanks so much. Also the boat house down below belongs to the owners it is not rented out, but we do occupy it frequently.

Cottage was nice and quiet, beautiful view. Kitchen was adequate, refrigerator -we would have wished for a full size, we had 2 dorm room refrigerators. Driveway was really rough.

relaxation on seneca

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cottage. The location is quite secluded with excellent views and access to the lake. The cottage is small but clean and well stocked. We especially loved the sleeping porch with cool breezes coming in off the lake all night. Jay and Kim were great/easy to work with. Thanks!
