This one bedroom cottage on a quiet country road is the perfect place for relaxation. Come as a couple or enjoy the peace and solitude by yourself. Writers and newlyweds especially love our Finger Lakes Cottage in the Woods.
June 2017 UPDATE: We have had several long term rentals in the past two years by professionals moving to the area and using our cottage as their home while they searched for long term housing. This is why we have had no recent reviews. We have just added fresh paint and updated the exterior. We purchased new furniture and updated the bathroom. We look forward to welcoming guests again!
This cottage is located on a quiet road in a wooded area between Honeoye and Canandaigua lakes. Our property is a great central location for a Finger Lakes vacation We are close to wineries, hiking and biking trails and other attractions. It is very quiet and beautiful in all four seasons.
The cottage has a full kitchen with all necessities such as dishes, pots and pans. There is a full bathroom and we provide towels as well as a hair dryer, soap and shampoo. The living room has a gas fireplace and a (faux) bear skin bear rug. There is a TV and although we have limited reception, we do have a great assortment of DVDs. Our game table has checkers, backgammon and cards so you can have a quiet game night and relax. There is an nice electric fireplace in the bedroom and it provides heat as well as ambience. There is a private deck with a fire pit for summer evenings along with a table and two chairs so you can enjoy your meals outside.
Just steps outside the door is a walking path, or enjoy a walk along the road past our creek and enjoy the woods. We look forward to welcoming you!
Our area was recently featured in the popular NY Times 36 hours section.
You will have the whole cottage to yourself, as well as a parking spot just steps from the entrance.
I always try to meet my guests at some point in their visit. I live next door and am always available by phone.
Past reviews have noted that we have spotty cell service. While some guests enjoy getting away from their cell phones, we have added a signal booster to the apartment and that seems to work for everyone.
Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate pets at the cottage. Smoking is allowed outside on the deck.
I am a native of the Finger Lakes area and live next door to the rental property. I have worked in the Finger Lakes tourism industry for many years so I can help my guests find all kinds of activities. Some of the more popular activities here are wine touring, waterfall hikes, skiing and snowshoeing, kayaking and going out for dinners at nearby restaurants that specialize in regional foods. Lots of times visitors just come and unwind- it is very quiet and peaceful here.
