“Nice, but.....”
Reviewed 6 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed at Keuka cottage at Cobtree Vacation Rentals in order to attend a dog show in a nearby town. The accommodations were spacious, a/c and heat worked well, but "small" things were annoying - lack of spoons, broken can opener, lack of vanity and shelf space in bathrooms, etc. The owner has been informed of these things and will likely correct and improve them. The mattresses are extremely hard. Some people may like that, we didn't. The grounds are beautiful but pitch black at night. If you are planning to go out at night with a dog, bring a headlamp and/or flashlight. The location is wonderfully quiet even though it is only a few minutes away from a major supermarket, restaurants, fast food, etc. I would recommend this place, especially if travelling with a dog, but be aware of the shortcomings.

Thank you for posting your review about our self catering vacation rental homes.

We shall certainly take care of the "small issues" you mention but would point out to viewers that we do offer a 24/7 contact service so that any shortcomings can be reported and addressed and any items needing replaced, immediately replaced during normal working hours.

I hold this helps

I rented the Seneca Lake cottage in September of 2013 and stayed there with 4 friends while visiting the Finger Lakes area. The cottage was clean, quiet, well equipped and very comfortable. The property owners generously permit well behaved dogs to accompany their guests which was a big selling point for me. We enjoyed grilling outside and watching wild turkeys from the deck.

The wildlife that guests can see from Cobtree is fantastic and we get to see Kilders, geese, cayote, fox, turkeys ducks, skunks, racoon and many other such wild critters that keep their distance! We look forward to your return visit to Cobtree soon.

“Great getaway for friends to get together”
Reviewed 19 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We recently stayed with our daughter at Seneca Cottage at Cobtree together with close friends who also have a young child. The cottage is an individual building with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living room and a nice kitchen and dining area. We liked that it was private, the other cottages were nearby but were not imposing, and that it had a wonderful view of the lake. Cobtree is well located being close to wineries and a short drive to downtown Geneva for dinning. We also enjoyed using the private grill on the porch or cooking meals in the kitchen. Wireless is available for those who need to be connected to their devices. There are cheaper options available for small families but Cobtree is ideal for an extended group or a large family.

We thank you for your kind and generous review and enjoyed your stay with us. We agree with you that there are indeed cheaper options like one of the cheaper motel chains but unlike a motel you are getting a fully equipped deluxe home with spectacular lake views looking out over Seneca Lake.

As you discovered, our rates do include things like a starter pack of bathroom tissue, washing up detergent, dishwasher liquid, trash bags, liquid soap and other cleaning items as well as linens, sheets and towels, use of the gas BBQ and free gas refills, wifi, flat screen cable tv's, USA and Canada wide telephone calls, air conditioning (central air) and NO additional cleaning fee when you check out!

All this is included in our rates and that is why we offer tremendous value for money compared to our competitors who generally speaking add on these services only after you have committed to the rental!

“A Finger Lakes Gem”
Reviewed 2 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Five of us spent a week at Cobtree Resorts with our bicycles. The cottage we stayed in was very modern and very clean when we arrived. The beds were comfy, the kitchen was spacious and the living area was the perfect place to hang out after a day of biking. There was a deck with a large gas grill overlooking Seneca Lake, the only thing missing was a hot tub. The resort area is very well maintained with a small system of trails in the adjoining woods. Can't say enough about how pleasant and accommodating the owners were. They were kind enough to allow us to store our bikes out of the rain in their barn. We definitely plan on going back, we still have a lot of wineries to visit.. This place is a great value for the price and the accommodations are excellent.

Thank you for your kind review.

Our guests have high expectations and we try to meet these were we can do so. Sometimes it's impossible to meet some guests expectations of self catering vacation rentals though and they expect hotel service!

It was the least we could do to let you use the barn for your bikes.

Jane and I are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. As you can appreciate, we take great care of our properties and try to ensure that they live up to the descriptions made online and that they are kept clean and well equipped.

You emailed to say that there was no salt in the property and we have immediately rectified this and hope that this was not too much of an inconvenience.

We look forward to your next visit to the Finger Lakes and your stay with us. During the better weather here you may enjoy a campfire as well.
