  • Great lakeside retreat!


    Four of us stayed at this idyllic home on a small peaceful lake to celebrate our anniversaries. The home was cute and clean and the beds were comfortable. We absolutely loved getting out to kayak and raft on the beautiful glassy little lake surrounded by trees and sitting on the dock in the evenings. It was only about 90 minutes from Cooperstown, so we spent a lovely day at the Baseball Hall of Fame as well. It was a beautiful peaceful place to spend the end of our vacation!

  • Great Vacation Getaway!


    Property was clean, spacious and homey with lots of amenities. Loved the view of the lake from the living and dining rooms, the large balcony facing the lake and the fire pit. Nice wood burning stove in living room for evenings. Enjoyed catch and release fishing, as we didn't want to clean and eat the fish. Enjoyed the 2 kayaks provided by owner. Peaceful and hidden treasure! Owner was VERY nice too! Would definitely go back again! Sue M. & family
