We had a wonderful time at Shelly’s cottage. The house was clean, roomy, and had amazing views of the lake. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could need. We spent a lot of time on the deck by the lake and much enjoyed the fire pit and being able to put our kayaks in the lake right from the dock. Shelly was pretty hands off, but that was A-OK by us – check in/out process was very easy and she was available if we had questions or ran into any issues (which we didn’t). Thanks for having us Shelly.
Our stay at Shelly's cottage was better than we had hoped for! The location is perfect, on the water and not a far trip into surrounding villages- either Watkins Glen or in the other direction, Hammondsport. The cottage is an older cottage but it is clearly maintained and kept clean (the place was spotless). There are numerous beds and lots of space- we were only a party of two but would still recommend this place for parties 4x larger. Shelly is an amazing host with continuous communication and immediate responses. She even provides extra toiletries if you forget something- like toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, and body wash. We definitely recommend this cottage on Lamoka Lake!!
This is a comfortably homey and rustic lakefront house with plenty of places to sleep. Don't be put-off by the small road between the home and the private dock. It is a not a busy road and I felt comfortable letting my 7 y/o cross it to go swimming. An open kitchen with dining-table over-looking the lake will encourage you to use the well-equipped kitchen.
Wonderful location, Shelly was a pleasure to deal with, sofa beds need be updated though, front door wasn't secure but it was a nice place. Very clean. View is amazing. Worth giving it a try and would recommend. Bring a night lite as my mother had a difficult time finding the bathroom in the middle of the night. Neighbors are amazing.
Great place tucked away in a quiet neighbourhood on the shores of the lake. Comfortable and well equipped properry with a nice backyard area to relax on and a deck out front right on the lakeside with direct access to a boat dock/jetty. Had a great stay at Shelly's place- would have liked to stay for longer than our schedule permitted.
We had a wonderful time at Shelly's lake front house. We found the house clean, great location, perfect lake views and the kitchen was throughly equipped, more than expected. Few items to consider if you are planing on a long stay: The Queen size bed is not the most comfortable and if you are picky about your beauty sleep also bring your pillows.
Shelly's place was beautiful! close to hiking trails and other attractions. Staying here for a weekend was awesome and we would love to come back! The small row boat was a great addition and the neighbors were very nice! We also enjoyed having dinner on the deck, the lake views were breathtaking! Thanks again for having us Shelly!
