The only house in 500' of lakefront. Quiet & beautiful & private. [See pics & feedback] A panoply of personal watercraft.   10 min to village of Naples.      House is upgraded mid-century cottage over a bridge at the end of the road – secluded, at the bottom of a cliff.   Outdoor hot tub, living room fireplace.   Big beautiful lake - right there - you'll feel it in your heart.   The wifi is pretty good, but we recommend that you don't use, because this time of year it's particularly nice out.

The space
We lived here in summers growing up. It's a great spot. We've upgraded it, so it could be used all year 'round, and tried to add creature comforts worthy of the location. We're excited to share it with others, whom we thank for allowing us to maintain it on into the future.

Note nearby you've got hikes, skiing, and of course the particular shopping, entertainment and breweries of our great Western NY culture.

No matter how long your day, at the end of it, you'll enjoy coming home to peace and solitude. Soak in the outdoor hot tub, chill by the fire. The cottage is comfortable and relaxed, with a peaceful open plan. We have Wifi, but it's a great place to disconnect, and reconnect. A single story with a ramp, it is handicapped accessible.

Guest access
The Whole Cottage, the lots, the streams, the beaches... all yours. Canoes may be used at your own risk. If you plan to share with a dog we charge a $150 per dog pet fee and want to discuss.

Other things to note
What makes this cottage unique means specific responsibilities for guests.

Our lake is the drinking water source for several small cities in the region, and their residents join us in thanking you for living lightly on the land while you are next to the water.

Our place is a unique location - on a special lake. Great walks, amazing birds, swimming, napping, - it's restorative. NOT A PARTY PLACE. It's rustic - old school. No power boats or jet skis - thanks. If you want peace and calm - it is for you.

There is a nice .5 km walk through vineyards outside our door. (Please drive slowly inside the vineyard)
There is running - out, along the lake, and back, or an 8 mile loop that goes up above the lake and has a great view.

My Brother Walter and I bought the cottage our family grew up in - we upgraded it to make it nice to share - so new friends can enjoy it and help pay the annual expenses. We're excited to be sharing the place - we think AirBnB is going to make it possible for us to keep it in the family, so our kids' kids can play and read and learn to swim there, the way we did, and we can keep enjoying naps there. We think it might be the best place to nap in the world. My wife and daughter and I love international budget travel, and AirBnB works great for us. We do Home Exchange, too. (Santa Monica awaits you - if you're willing to take care of two cool cats!) Every spring break we try to an interesting international trip - last few years have been visiting friend in Ethiopia, exploring Viet Nam, etc. For my work, I teach parents of infants and toddlers and run a small non-profit focused on that. My wife runs a bigger non profit that builds affordable housing. We're lucky, and happy. We live in a wonderful world - let's take care of it.
