Love, loved it

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful cottage. Very clean and bright with everything included to make your stay comfortable. The lakefront is perfect, kayaking, great swimming area and plenty of room for lounging around and hanging by the fire pit. The back yard is to die for. Peaceful, beautiful and great for walking the dog. The owner Josh was great to work with. Out of your hair (which is great ) but very responsive to whatever you may want or need. The area is perfect, lots of restaurants, winerys and area attractions. I really loved this place and recommend choosing it for a great get a way vacation

MDW Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This house was located in the perfect location for the activities we planned for the weekend. It is in between many wineries and approximately 20 minutes from Taughannock Falls. Thanks to the owner for recommending the trip to the Falls. The house itself is very spacious. We were 6 adults and we all could move freely/comfortably on the main level. Two bedrooms upstairs, both with a ton of space and lots of windows. House was stocked with all the kitchen utensils you'll need and it was nice to have access to a washer and dryer. The house is located on the opposite side of the street from its waterfront, but so worth it because you get a huge grassy area with a picnic table, lawn chairs, huge fire pit, and the dock. The waterfront was perfect for our yard games and just relaxing by the fire. Only issue we had was with the pullout couch, but we rectified the situation by using an air mattress instead of the couch. Owner met us to show us around and answer any questions, and were available by phone over the weekend when the propane tank went empty (also rectified quickly so no interruption to our plans). The house is nothing fancy, but was spacious and clean and the waterfront was just amazing, so all in all it was a great weekend. Thank you for having us! We'd definitely be interested in staying again.

Great Cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

Cute little cottage and very affordable. Owner was very friendly and answered all questions we had. House was clean and had everything we needed. We went there with our daughter and grandson and our 3 dogs. Lake was across the street, but no big deal- road wasn't very busy. Several wineries are within a 5 mile radius. We are looking forward to coming back. Thanks for a great weekend.

Great house and value; friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend getaway in the fall last year with our dog! The house was very clean and comfortable. The big love seat was relaxing after bon fire evenings on the beach. We used the kayaks for an afternoon which was awesome, but it was difficult to launch them. At first, we were hesitant about the beach being across a street, but it turned out to not be a big deal since the road is fairly quiet. This place was a great value, and we would DEFINITELY stay again or recommend it to friends. Thanks Carris family!

Cute Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is not fancy but clean and comfortable and a very good value. The pictures are accurate. It had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. The location was convenient for visiting the many wineries. Hannah met us at the cottage for check in to go over details and answer questions. We enjoyed spending time in the evenings on the lake around the fire pit. We had a great week.

My family and I had a great time. We loved going to the docks for swimming, fishing, boating, kiaking and spending time around the fire. It was a great time loved it would stay again.!
