Our 2-bedroom, 2-bath cabin was perfect for me and my sister. It was spotless and the beds were probably the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in. I loved having a kitchen available and a lovely living room to socialize after a long day driving around the lake. Great staff, great accommodations. Only a short drive to many wineries and Watkin’s Glen. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.

This place was spotless, kudos to whomever is maintaining it and please keep it up. We loved it and would love to return! It had everything we needed and it was so peaceful, which is what we wanted. Contactless check in and check out was a great option.

The cabins are relatively new, well made, and perfectly outfitted. Views of Seneca Lake from the porch. Superb central location for winetasting, local sightseeing, and outdoor exploration. Simple and efficient check-in and check-out.

When we were looking in the early winter of 2021 for a peaceful, quite getaway we came across information on Single Island Shores. The log cabin look had really attracted us. So we booked it for May 2021. When we got there Ashley, the property manager, greeted us and was very pleasant and helpful. When we got to our one bedroom cabin we were impressed with how much room we had and everything we needed for our stay. The front porch overlooking Seneca Lake was perfect for having a morning cup of coffee and enjoying the cool breeze coming off the lake. When we decided to explore we went to Hazlett winery just down the road and Three Brothers Winery in Geneva and The Glenn Curtiss Aviation Museum in Hammondsport and more. It was always nice to come back to our cabin for a quite, peaceful evening. We will definitely put this on our list to come back to.
