Every year my three sisters and I take a trip somewhere on the east coast and decided we want to check out the beautiful wine country at Seneca Lake. After much searching, I came across Cobtree and we booked one of smaller cabins. We were PLEASANTLY SURPRISED when we arrived. We didn't have to check in with anyone as the keys were already in the cabin which was nice. The cabin was fully furnished with kitchenware, bedding, towels, cable TV, internet and a gas grill. Was definitely a $$ saver since we could get groceries and make our own stuff and, ergo, have more money to spend on wine and other excursions. We had a beautiful view of the lake, plenty of parking as we have 3 vehicles and the site was conveniently located in the midst of the wineries, not far from Watkins Glen (which if you like to hike and want to see some AMAZING waterfalls it's a must see!) in addition to other cool places.
The best part, for us, other than all of the amazing things mentioned above was the price! We stayed for a fraction of the price of what we would have spent staying in a hotel and we got so much more bang for our buck.
I will say, the only major issue we experienced was there was a HUGE wasp next right outside of the upstairs bedroom and the wasps were coming into the room. It took several calls for assistance to actually get someone out there to take care of it. Unfortunately, I had to get very aggressive over the phone about the problem and once someone finally came out, they didn't do much.... Just sprayed the area with bug spray and then basically told us to use this bug spray stuff under the sink to kill the ones inside the house. It was a bit annoying because all we asked them to do was knock down the nest which I would have done myself had I been able to reach it.
I would definitely stay again but inspect the perimeter first before actually getting settled.
