Tranquil cottage with high quality finishes
We stayed at the cottage for a week of peace and tranquility found on a wonderful porch overlooking the lake. The finishes inside and out were of definite high quality. There was an abundance of room for reading, listening to music, cooking, tv and of course conversation. We are looking forward to future visits.
Thank you very much for taking the time to rate your experience at our rental. We are thrilled to see that you enjoyed a wonderful stay with us! Please come and stay with us again soon!

This house was absolutely beautiful. It was just as we expected. The views of the lake were amazing. House was very clean and came stocked with all kitchen equipment we could have thought of needing.

Graduation and Wine Tasting
What a wonderful time we had at the Schoolhouse Cottage! This spacious waterfront property had everything we were looking for and more. The kitchen is fabulous—large 6-burner range with a huge oven and nice cookware made dining in a real pleasure. The gas grill by the deck was in perfect working order with plenty of propane. Nice updated baths, as well. The huge deck looking out over the yard and Seneca Lake really stole the show, though! We found ourselves wishing we had scheduled a couple more days just to hang out at the property, lounge on the dock, and paddle around in the kayaks. That said, location is also perfect for taking advantage of the many nearby attractions: we had a lovely time at Anthony Road Winery just minutes away and were just 15-20 minutes from HWS Colleges where our son was graduating this weekend. We would definitely return for a longer stay!

Great Lake House!
We had a fun few day stay here for a birthday. This place is so beautiful and clean and is situated on Lake Seneca with a wonderful view. Did lots of wine tasting all around the lake and this cottage was in the perfect location. If you stay here you must visit Anthony Road Winery and Kemmeter. Great experiences all around. Will definitely stay here again.

Schoolhouse Cottage was a very relaxing place to vacation. Sitting on the porch overlooking the lake was the best! Very clean, very comfortable. We had a great time and we would stay there again should we go back to the Finger Lakes.

This was our second stay at the Schoolhouse Cottage and it is the perfect spot along Seneca Lake. Access to the lake for fishing and kayaking is excellent. Proximity to Geneva for groceries and walking the Canal Trail is only 20 minutes away. We were able to order out meals from restaurants in Penn Yan (only 15 minutes). I highly recommend Keuka Restaurant, Cam's pizza and Seneca Farms!

Thoroughly enjoyed our week at this beautiful, clean, and updated home. Spent much of our time relaxing on the front porch. Would definitely return.

Happy to return to this house, or another managed by FLPP in the future.

Property was extremely clean and well maintained. View of the Lake just beautiful. Neighbors, although close, friendly and quiet. One bike trail accessible from home; others close by.

Our family of 6 loves the School House Cottage and has returned 3 years in a row. It is a beautiful home with excellent lake access, a relaxing porch and large yard.

The house was a beautiful surprise. The view was amazing, the house was beautiful but also super easy to use. It was laid out perfectly with a large open family space to spend time together. We spent time on the deck despite the cold temperatures because it was just too gorgeous to not!!

Beautiful home! The view was unreal!
From the moment we arrived, we were blown away by this property. The house is immaculately kept. The back porch is amazing! The view is unreal. There were 8 women and we all can't wait to go back with our families. Thank you so much for a wonderful weekend in your beautiful home!!

We rented the house for 2 nights but could have stayed forever! The house was well furnished, very clean, and had a beautiful view. I’d definitely rent it again!

Excellent home, wonderful amenities and great atmosphere.

This is a fantastic rental. The pictures make you want to go there - the amenities make you want to stay! The location was very central to all the Finger Lakes has to offer - hiking, wineries and such great restaurants. The renovations of this cottage were done with care and craftsmanship. The two guys in our party have extensive home renovation experience and both agreed that it was a job well done! And one of the guys is a fantastic cook and pronounced the kitchen almost as good as his kitchen he put in back home! That's extremely high praise - and we certainly enjoyed the meals he prepared! And while he was cooking we spent time on the beautiful covered deck or on the dock down at the lakefront! What could be better than a covered deck looking out at a beautiful lake? The living/dining/kitchen area was perfect for our needs - we spent most of the daylight hours out on the deck but when we had to come inside the space was great! The bedrooms were very roomy and comfortable. A very nice arrangement for 2 couples vacationing together with 2 full (and very beautiful) bathrooms. The views were spectacular of the lake ranging from rain with a double-rainbow out over the lake to crisp, cool mornings and beautiful evenings on the deck. The landscaping and gardens were very inviting - you can tell someone loves this house! Besides us, I mean. We have stayed in many rentals in the Finger Lakes and I must say this is one of the best!

Our family had a wonderful time. The accommodations were more than what the pictures offered. The renovations were done as if it were in my own home, as a person critical to quality in, appliances and workmanship, Job Well Done! Had time to have breakfast in the morning and head out to the wineries, came back for lunch then head out again for tasting, then back for dinner, everything you would want close by. The size of the living/dining/kitchen area was perfect for our adult children to all be there for my wife's birthday. The 3 bedrooms were very roomy and comfortable. The views were spectacular of the lake even though it rained which presented a full rainbow out over the lake that evening. The mornings were crisp and clear with a beautiful sunrise. Perfect for a fall setting this time of year. Oh did I mention the porch :) could have slept out there all night, would have needed a few more comfy throws though. The neighbors even waved back to us, the unknown, which is very nice. One thing that would have made it better would have been a fire place just because I am a romantic, but understanding that it is a rental it is much safer without. Oh and a plug for the winery I liked, Fox Run is a got to see :) love the old barn feel. I have Pictures that will last a life time of some beautiful views.
