Loved our time at this cottage. Comfortable beds, very clean and tons of amenities. We were able to explore Lake Seneca and Keuka easily from here. Quiet neighborhood too! We will definitely return!

This is a nice cottage near the end of a quiet road with a waterfall at the end of the road and a creek behind the house. There was a nice deck, grill and fire pit, but the weather and other activities we had planned did not allow us the time to use them. There are 2 bedrooms at opposite sides of the cottage with beautiful quilts on each bed. Nice touch with a bowl of candy on the dining table. We would definitely stay there again, and recommend it to others.

Location was < 2 miles south of downtown Watkins Glen so very convenient to everything. Maybe 12 minutes to WGI. House was older, but everything worked. Proud owner who took care of any issues and decorated for the season. Also a bit of racing motif with checkered curtains and pics of past races so if you’re a race fan, its cool. Upon arrival music playing and a dish of candy awaited. Very quiet location with popular scenic falls two lots away. Nice backyard with stream running through and fire pit with plenty of wood and starting fluid. Many other properties supply 8-10 pieces of wood and then you need to buy more. We had multiple fires and there was still plenty of wood remaining. Probably not an issue for weekend guests, but for those staying a while there is no washer or dryer or dishwasher. Laundromat is only about 1/2 mile away though. Microbrew less than 1/2 mile and two more on main street. One bathroom as advertised, but only one door. The door from the kitchen has only a curtain. For a couple or maybe family with a child or two ok, but not for sharing. Only one ac in the living room so expect the back bedroom could be warm on the hot summer nights. Probably not many of those and there is a floor fan. Nice dining room and pretty much fully equipped kitchen. We cooked and ate many meals here & found it comfortable. Working vacation so dining room also doubled as work area. Internet was fine. No issues with zoom calls or connectivity during the stay.

Came up for a race at WGI with my wife and 6 year old and couldn't of picked a better spot. Don't think I ever drove more than 10 minutes between downtown Watkins Glen, the track, and Seneca Lake. My son fell in love with the creek waterfalls and swimming hole that were right in the backyard. Inside could use a little updating but still a very comfy warm place to spend time with the family and enjoy the beautiful surrounding area. Property manager was also incredibly accommodating and communicative. Answered all our questions instantly. Would stay again.

We had a lovely time staying here with me, my husband, my daughter and our pup. The property is beautiful— backs up to a creek and there are two trails nearly where you can walk to waterfalls. So close to wineries and Watkins Glenn, and the owners are super responsive and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

The house was in a quiet neighborhood just a short walk to a small waterfall. The house is older but was very clean. Everything was provided for a nice stay including paper plates, paper towels etc. A bonus is that the house is on a creek and had a fire pit. The only negative was that the mattresses need to be updated to better quality and if possible queen size for larger people. Overall though, a very nice house with window air conditioning.

Nice place
Very clean. Very good location, with easy access to wine country locations and Watkins Glen State Park. Has almost everything you could possibly need from toiletries to cooking utensils. Mattresses were adequate. Had a couple of minor issues that needed attention, which the property manager took care of immediately. Very pleased with that. Area was nice and quiet.
