The Gilbert House was a wonderful place for our family gathering, which included our children and their families.  The large dock was great for hanging out by the lake and there were plenty of outdoor chairs!    The bedrooms were very nice.  We enjoyed the large family room with TV and Pool Table.  The kitchen had lots of place settings, cooking utensils and appliances (toaster, crockpot, blender, etc.).  The pots and pans were high quality, the best I’ve seen in a rental!!  This made cooking a pleasure!    We enjoyed swimming in the lake.  The dock have us easy access and my grandchildren enjoyed the beach area!    We were very happy to find and stay at The Gilbert House!!!!

Finger Lakes Getaway

The Gilbert house was the perfect location to celebrate a good friend's upcoming wedding with several friends. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The property had a beautiful view of the lake and provided ample opportunities for fishing, swimming, and relaxing.
