Overlook Cottage is a traditional, 2-br summertime cottage situated at the bluff's edge overlooking the west side of Seneca Lake - smack dab in the middle of the Finger Lakes Wine Trail. It sits on a private, large property comprised of mature woods with a private beach and dock area found at the bottom of the steps. It is located approximately 15 minutes north of Watkins Glen, NY. While it's rustic looking on the outside and doesn't have all the frills that other vacation homes might, it does offer unparalleled quiet, privacy, and peacefulness - all at a superb price.
Besides the two small bedrooms, each with a double bed, Overlook offers an updated bathroom with shower, a living area and full kitchen, and a wonderful screened-in porch with dining area that you'll never want to leave! Outside, you'll find two campfire rings (one on the beach, one by the cottage), parking, a picnic area with grill, and clothesline. On the lake level, you'll find your own private dock and beach area that is extremely private and quiet.
Overlook's size makes it the perfect getaway/romantic retreat for two adults. Our most common renters are couples with or without one or two small children (note: we can accommodate a maximum of three adults, or two adults with two young children). In fact, this is a perfect cottage and setting for children, as there are plenty of safe and secure woods, water, and outdoors for kids to explore, and the steps in between the cottage and the beach assure you that your child won't wander off to the water. Children absolutely love the lake -- so many rocks to skip! -- and the gradually inclined beach make it easy for children to sit in the water at the lake's edge, or walk out to where they feel comfortable.
Our rental period runs from Sunday (3pm or later check-in) to either the following Saturday or Sunday (10am) check-out. Linens are not provided, but we do offer peace, quiet, and firewood! We are also able to offer secure parking for a boat trailer. Cost is $875/week (Sat. checkout) or $950/week (Sun. checkout), beginning mid-June through mid-September. Pets and smoking in the cottage are not permitted. Please see our website or contact us for any questions.
