Perfect mini getaway
My husband and I decided on a last minute honey moon. Our only regret was not staying longer! We had so much fun visiting tons of wineries, sitting by the lake and fishing, and just relaxing! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful property with us- we will be back!

We have absolutely nothing negative to say about it!
Sometimes you rent a home, arrive, and are disappointed because the pictures didn’t look like the home when you get there! This vacation rental was better than we ever expected! Very clean, well kept, & equipped! As a matter of fact…we hope to go back soon and rent this property!

Highly recommend!
It was a comfortable house for 6 long-time women friends for a weekend getaway. There is a brewery and winery within walking distance of the house. If it had been nicer weather we would have been able to enjoy the deck and firepit with the lovely lake view. Next time!

Comfortable lake house with a view

Six adult women friends slept comfortably in this house for a long weekend. The full bathroom on first floor had a great shower and was roomy. Most of our awake time was spent traveling to various wineries and breweries in the area. There are many! We walked to a couple nearby. It was a bit windy and cool so we didn’t get to enjoy the deck and fire pit as we would have liked, but the kitchen table offered a nice view of the lake. The neighbor was friendly and checked in on us upon arrival. She gave us extra coffee and filters, but we did find filters on day 2 tucked away in a drawer. I, personally, would have enjoyed staying an extra couple of days to further explore the area. Would definitely choose this house again.

Family stay on Cayuga

Lovely house that was perfectly appointed for us. Clean, fun, not too “precious” with delicate things everywhere. Weather was beautiful as was the view property managers were over quick to fix a leaky pipe and a hornets nest.

We were generally very happy with the property. The neighbors were very friendly and helpful as well. The gates on the deck for children were perfect for our 2 year old so he could play without worry of him falling down the steps. They only other suggestion I'd make is possibly a gate for the steps inside for families with kids. We brought our own so it wasn't a big deal but may be helpful for others. We had a fabulous stay and we're sad to leave.

Hated to leave the cottage!

Our cottage stay was wonderful! We stay in the FLX once/year and this was one of our favorites! Very comfy cottage - with a beautiful and well appointed kitchen ( we cooked dinner in 3 out of 4 nights) and the deck was perfect for hanging out and having dinner on. We enjoyed every part of the cottage. Can't wait to have the opportunity to go back.
