Description Description

Tucked into the north east side of Cayuga Lake, midway between Seneca Falls and Aurora, Lakeview Cottage is the perfect location.  Whether you’re attending a graduation at Wells College, a wedding at the Aurora Inn, or you’re here to enjoy a wine tour around the lake – this 2-bedroom home is ready to welcome you!

Inside, beautiful hardwood floors span the length of the great room.  This cozy space is perfect for entertaining your small group of travelers!  With lake views shining in from the distance, enjoy cooking up a meal fit for a king in the open kitchen - featuring white appliances, plenty of cupboard & counter space, and an island that seats 6.

The open great room is complete with an overstuffed sofa, and additional dining space. Sliding glass doors hug the western wall and lead to the second story balcony, complete with outdoor dining space and chairs to relax in. Whether you're grilling for family and friends, or you're enjoying your early morning coffee this shaded area will quickly become one of your favorite areas of the house.

Throughout this cozy home, 2 private bedrooms are yours to choose from. Choose your favorite and make yourself comfortable during your stay.
Outside, a custom-built patio overlooks the lake.  Entertaining is always best under the sun and on this perfectly set up patio you'll never miss a minute of sun exposure.   Bring your favorite yard game from home and enjoy a game and the amazing view!

Located about 15 minutes from Seneca Falls, Auburn and Aurora, Lakeview Cottage is ideal for traveling the eastern side of the Finger Lakes.  Travel north west toward downtown Seneca Falls, which is widely believed to be the inspiration for the town in the movie, "It's A Wonderful Life," and where you can find restaurants like Parker's Grill & Tap House, El Bajio Mexican Restaurant and quaint shops. Or, if you prefer lakeside dining, travel by boat right across the lake to Wolffy's Grill & Maria.  A quick drive into Auburn offers endless fun when you visit the Merry Go Round Playhouse!  Book a performace during your trip - it'll be one worth remembering.  Tour the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail, and head on down toward Aurora.  Stop in to Mackenzie Childs and bring home a piece of designer pottery, or enjoy Finger Lakes dining at Fargo Bar & Grill, or 1833 Kitchen & Bar. There’s no doubt though that Lakeview Cottage will be the spotlight of your vacation!  Call and make your reservation today!

Quiet and convenient
The property is in a great location for exploring the region. Ideal for 2 or 3 people . Lots of outdoor seating. It has a narrow underpass to get through, right before the cottage, so big vans and SUV's might find it hairy to get there.

Beautiful sunsets on a beautiful lake

Exactly what we needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of work and life in NYC. Peaceful lake with spectacular sunsets while sitting on the back balcony were perfect. Nights spent around the fire pit staring and counting the stars. Days spent exploring towns with history such as Seneca Falls and Auburn, lunches at nearby wineries and a tour of Montezuma nature preserve and a cheese farm made the trip memorable. The house is exactly as pictured, beautiful and quaint plus comfortable. Note: Only thing we felt it needed was ice cube trays and salt and pepper shakers. But we made due with a local market close by. Overall a Great stay and highly recommended. Thank you

Great little cottage!

This house is small but worked perfectly for my husband and our two teenagers. Very quiet and peaceful location. Loved the kayaks! We would definitely book again.

Quiet Time

My wife and I needed a short getaway so we headed for the Finger Lakes. Lake view Cottage was exactly as we expected. Quiet, and while there were neighbors it was very peaceful. Would highly recommend this place.

Cute Cottage on Cayuga

My family had a wonderful stay, despite the rain. Cute nautical-themed cottage, clean and family-friendly. Sleeps “six” in a two bedroom one bathroom home, but that includes a small bunk bed. We were not clear on what we were able to use in the basement so did not touch anything. Never got access to internet (one of us taking an online class) despite several phone calls. Otherwise, super cute, fun, and functional and would rent again.

A really nice cottage well kept , the only draw back was the single lane narrow bridge

Great weekend getaway

This location is perfect! It is a beautiful property on a lovely piece of the lake. We enjoyed all the outdoor seating, the grill and fire pit. The house was comfortable and perfect for four adults. We would absolutely stay again.

Great space, just as advertised

House was exactly as pictured. Excellent location right on the lake. Easy drive to the other lakes and state parks for site seeing and excursions. The small railway bridge tunnel requires a slow going but was not passable for most . Overall, a clean and comfortable property. Recommend

Peaceful Area!

This is a beautiful location for sitting out, campfires, and lake bird watching. Cottage was stocked with plenty of pots, pans, cutlery, etc. Lots of outdoor seating area as shown Housekeeping was very responsive. The cottage has its charm, and it’s quirks. The charm is the gathering space, bar seating, at the kitchen counter, the deck overlooking the lake, and the willow tree providing shade. Nothing would keep us from coming back in a heartbeat. It was a wonderful location and a very enjoyable stay!

Cute little house with fantastic views! Our dog loved sitting on the deck and watching for birds & chipmunks. Lots of kitchen equipment, plates, glasses, and even corn holders for your corn-on-the-cob! We brought two inflatable paddle boards and the two kayaks on site allowed our family of four to paddle together. Only a 15-20 minute drive to shopping, wineries, or local craft beer.

Stunning lake view in quiet surroundings
Lovely cottage right on Lake Cayuga. Very quiet Northern section of the lake. Includes two adult sized kayaks and one child sized kayak. Clean Linens and towels were provided. Bed quilts needed to be cleaned. Bedrooms are small but have ceiling fans. No a/c in master bedroom. Second bedroom had a twin bed and a bunk bed with an a/c but a/c leaked water on floor after several hours of use. We did promptly report the issue. Oddly there was no handle on the inside of the screened door at The entrance so it made it difficult to close from The inside. Bathroom is modern and a decent size. Kitchen/living room is modern and has a/c And a large wall mounted TV. There is a fire pit and we brought our own seasoned fire wood to enjoy s?mores in the evening as well as the fire. Large deck to enjoy the views. We rented a pontoon boat for the day to explore the lake. We enjoyed our stay Very much and would return.
