We are an English family of 4 (kids 10 & 13) wanting a peaceful week between NYC and Niagara.
The cabin was welcoming, well equiped and just a stone throw away from a lake where the family swam and relaxed in hammocks. Unlike some European "log cabins", these were made of real wood. We had a cabin with a veranda which was private but also allowed us to socialise with the other guests. Relaxing at night, with the decorative lights and the sound of crickets (heard but never seen) was a real highlight to compare with anything in NYC or Niagara. Absolutely no problem with insects or milipeads.
With the cabin there was a BBQ and fire pit .The fire was easy to build with all the woods surrounding you, after a day the cabin felt like home and we were really reluctant to leave!
Plenty of great State Parks (if you like swimming, you must go to Robert Treman State Park), Ithaca is lovely and varied and Seabreeze Amusement Park and swimming is only 2 hours away.
A really great time. Good value and good times.

Stayed here with extended family for a reunion and the separate cabins are a great feature but they are very small. The Lakehouse is in a great location but needs some improvement. Every morning we found thousands of dead millipedes (from recent insecticide application) outside and inside the lower level of the lakehouse. The smell from the millipedes carcasses rendered the lower level of the lakehouse uninhabitable.

We explained to the renters that every few years on the lake, there is an explosion of centipedes. There was even a Headline Article in the Ithaca Journal that had a story of all the houses on the lake being inundated with centipedes. We offered the renters free use of the bunkhouse, but they didn’t want to use it. We easily spent $1500+ with exterminators, but it just doesn’t keep them at bay when this happens. Sorry about that! But you are on a lake in the woods and bugs come with that territory.
