Interaction with guests
I greet each guest upon arrival and after a very short tour, answer questions, and give you the key! I am available throughout your stay for any problems that may arise. The cottage is just 20 minuets from the towns of Canandaigua, Penn Yan, Naples and Geneva, each with their own special attractions. There are plenty of wine trails, cheese trails, craft breweries, and cideries, antique shops, eateries, parks, high-end shopping, hiking/biking trails, waterfalls and spectacular views - all nearby. We are about an hour from downtown Rochester and under 2 hours from each Niagara Falls, Ithaca, and Corning (Corning Museum of Glass). The cottage is approximately a 7 hour drive from New York City.

About the neighborhood
Enjoy the quiet, private outdoor living space set back from the road and snuggled up beside the creek in back! The 'Enchanted Forest' surrounding the cottage adds a touch of whimsy, imagination and magic to your vacation getaway! Like a mini treasure hunt, you will find hidden objects in each of the gardens but there are bold statements as well! A short walk around the block and you can witness the Milky Way on a clear summer's night. There is a near by seasonal campground that invites you to take a quiet walk into the woods. Within 20 miles you are on extensive 'wine tours' on neighboring finger lakes! The city of Canandaigua provides all kinds of shopping opportunities and the town of Victor has a very prestigious shopping mall.
