Peaceful Stay
My family booked this home after it checked our boxes for a centralized location to visit our family and friends in Central and Western NY, and space for some restorative down time. We were pleased with the property and what it offered. Our group of 5 adults and 1 infant fit comfortably with room to spread out. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils to prepare and enjoy meals with the lake view. We would book this place again.

Nice quiet area.

Water can get rough during storms. Deck needs some boards replaced and the apple tree it attracts a lot of bees. The house itself was very nice and close to many amenities shopping, parks etc.

Sweet Retreat in July
The home is well maintained and clean. The house has a/c which was unexpected. May have recently been upgraded. The wifi/internet access was horrible. With only one TV in the house, it should be upgraded. The steps going to the 2nd floor are a bit steep and could be an issue for some as there is no toilet upstairs. Green space at lake front was great. There was like an underwater beach area. All the large rocks were removed so it was easy to walk around in the water. There is some lake grass floating around so bring a small rake. An elevated train track in front of the home is still active, but train only comes by twice a day. Kids will enjoy counting the cars as it passes. Grocery store in Auburn is 15 minutes away. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will probably rent again in the future.

My 2 kids and i loved the location of the home. The outside was just perfect, whether we were eating, drinking our coffee or getting great photos of the lake and the amazing sunset from the deck or dock area.     The inside was cozy and very comfortable our whole stay. It was hard to leave.

Weekend getaway

Our family enjoyed the stay. We stayed just a long weekend. The weather was great which added to our enjoyment of the property. Enjoyed the wineries and had a great dinner at fall 84 in Seneca falls. The tunnel was a little challenging w our kayaks. But we took them off b4 and walked them to the house. Lake views and sunsets are spectacular. Not a great swimming area - too much sea weed Enjoyed the deck and yard for some good corn hole games. House and kitchen well stocked. Great house and stay. Ty for sharing.

Girls weekend

Thanks for the great stay! Lots of room to sleep - one king, one queen and 3 single beds. Everyone had a place to lay their head. Very convenient to wineries!

Our vacation plans did not go as planned this year due to covid. It left us scrambling to find somewhere local to try and enjoy some much needed family time. We were lucky enough to find this property and work with this company. We had the best week and created unforgettable memories. So much so that going forward our vacation plans will be scheduled at the lake. This house created a very welcoming and sense of home feeling for us. It is located towards the top of the lake giving you the best view of the breath taking sunsets. The yard was perfect for yard games and bonfires. Inside was very roomy, clean and comfortable. Finger Lakes Premier Properties was extremely accommodating and friendly. They were patient and answered all my questions. We look forward to creating many more family memories here.

Beautiful house on east side of the lake. Beautifully furnished, lovely balconies overlooking yard and lake! Off the busy road in a quiet drive!
