"At The Lake We Forget to Count The Days"
The cottage is a great place to relax and kickback with family and friends. Enjoy Day tripping by touring our local wineries, breweries or our famous Cheese Trail. Tried of all that day tripping? Take the day off from sightseeing to hang at the cottage for a lazy afternoon of sipping wine, sunning, or reading that favorite book. Do a little kayaking. Jump off the Dock for a casual afternoon swim. Walk up the hill and take a peaceful walk through the countryside surrounded by vineyards. Walk beside the railroad track for some great berry picking. At night don't forget that campfire on the beach for marshmallow roasting and story telling. You might even see that Full Moon Rising! Saturdays it's fun to head across the lake to the Ithaca's Farmers Market. Another great day trip is the Corning Museum of Glass or head north and check out Seneca Falls the birthplace of the Women's Rights Movement and the locks of the Erie Canal.
The entire cottage, private beach,dock and kayaks our yours during your vacation rental. You have parking next to the cottage. Steps will give you access to your private beach, dock, Kayaks and camp fire pit.
On your arrival the cottage will be stock with coffee, 1/2&1/2,OJ & breakfast treats for your first morning in case you have arrived late and did not have time to market. Wine, cheese, crackers. bottled water, cokes & candies in the refrigerator for you to enjoy upon your arrival. If you have any needs we live and own a marina in Watkins so we are always available if any problems come up.
Again if you need anything we are 7 miles away in Watkins Glen.
I have a welcome book for you to read that gives general information, internet code, what to do with the trash and information on local places to visit. We ask that the cottage be left neat, tidy and trash taken out. Take care of the cottage as if it was your own. Firewood is supplies for the house but you will need to pick up firewood for the beach fire pit (if you use our wood there are lots of roadside places to pick up bundles to replace what you use. If you don't get around to replacing wood leave $5 per bundle in the firewood donation box located in the bookcase.
My husband and I moved to Watkins Glen 6 years ago and bought this cool estate property on top of the hill with a great view of the lake but walking distance to the Village and the State Park. We feel like we live in the county but we are walking distance to the Village. We own Frog Hollow Marina in Watkins and also a cottage on the lake. We love it here and hope you do to!
