Relaxing and fun

  • 5 of 5

As bed and breakfast travelers this was a step outside our comfort zone. But what a step! The place is so quiet and peaceful. The owners are down to earth and friendly. No pretense, just genuinely nice people. The campers who stay all season are friendly and we made some very fun new friends. Sitting around the fire at night with our new friends was so much fun. The cabin is well appointed and comfortable. I highly recommend for a getaway from it all!

Beautiful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this campground. The cabin was extremely clean and cute!! The property manager was very friendly and helpful too. Each night a fire was going outside and there's a great view of the lake. Close to Watkins Glen which has wonderful restaurants, brewpubs, Ben & Jerry's, and the state park where you can hike through the waterfalls. I can't wait to go back!

Cozy, clean cottage on a beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

Loved the cottage, and the view was spectacular. Was able to paddle out in the lake and fish bright and early in the morning along with the gorgeous sunrise. The proprietors and the campers were extremely nice. We'll definitely be back.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location close to everything but out of all the rush of things.Great place to relax and take in the view and have some Smores over your campfire ring by the lake.great place for fishing and did I mention the kayaks that you don't have to rent even the canoes a free to take out with all the gear at no extra cost.The only down side it was a little humid and muggy in our rental it had no air but over all I loved this place and can't wait to have another summer adventure there.

Cottage rental worked just fine for us

  • 4 of 5

This"cottage" is built above the RV campground's pavilion building - an apartment with a cottage feel. Bring your own linens, all other amenities present. Cottage cozy and clean, good heater for cool nights. We didn't use the boats as it was quite cool but the setting is lovely. The owners were friendly and helpful, and we had several pleasant chats with campers at the lake side patio. Campground conveniently located between Watkins Glen and Corning. Entrance road bears noting - large speed bumps - but if you proceed slowly it's fine.

Cottage not appropriate for those who cannot do stairs.

Owner's Response: We thank anyone for a review of our property. We apologize for our speed bumps but we had to put them in to slow traffic for the safety of campers walking the driveway to the Lakefront.
