Located minutes from downtown historic Seneca Falls, the Petit Retreat might just be the cutest cottage on Cayuga Lake!  Ideal for a couple’s getaway or a family of four, this little gem runs right along the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail. When you arrive, you will be drawn to the brand-new deck overlooking the lake, a perfect spot to enjoy a bottle of complimentary Finger Lakes wine and toast to the beginning of your getaway!

Once inside this cozy retreat, all your cares will wash away.  The floor plan design is perfectly planned out for maximizing space!  With the lake shining through the windows, you’ll have great views from every angle of this cottage.

An open modern galley kitchen offers all the cookware needed for a perfect meal created from local ingredients.  Off the kitchen, the living and dining area are equally as lovely and comfortable. You can settle in either of the bedrooms, one a king and the other a queen, each with their own bathroom.  There are two outdoor decks and a Florida porch, all of which are conducive to Finger Lakes Dreaming.

Now about this lake.  It is rumored, and we believe it might be true, that right off your own 25 foot private dock is the best swimming spot on the whole lake! Sunset paddle anyone? The Petit Retreat offers two single kayaks exclusively for your use to enjoy the clear and calm Cayuga Lake. The dock also comes equipped with cleats from which you can moor your small craft. 

Among the many indoor amenities include two Smart TV’s, family favorite board games, a Wifi speaker for enjoying your own playlists and even an acoustic guitar for those musicians among you. 

Should you decide to leave the Retreat, about a half mile down the road is the Cayuga Lake State Park, which is known for amazing birding, fishing and swimming.  The park includes a boat launch, swimming beach and playground.  Afterwards be sure to swing by local favorite Wolfy’s Grill and Marina for a Finger Lakes craft beer and their famous Bang Bang Shrimp!

Historic Seneca Falls is also a town fit for foodies.  A list of local recommendations are available in the cottage guest book, including some delicious finds in other neighboring towns.  A bonus if you are in the mood, you will not be far from the Waterloo Outlet Mall and the Lago Casino and Resort.
