Breathe deep, exhale, and let your cares melt away. At Painted Quail Cottage, we guarantee to provide you with the relaxing lake views and water fun you crave! Shiplap, rich woods, and luxury furnishing will make you never want to stay in a hotel or condo again! Enjoy your morning coffee gazing at panoramic water views on the deck or in the master bedroom. Spend the day exploring the lake in the cottage canoe reserved for guests, hiking to one of the many waterfalls nearby, sipping wine along the Keuka or Seneca Wine trails, or letting the lake breeze wash over you while lounging on one of our 4 deck levels.  This lovely cottage was featured on HGTV's Lakefront Bargain Hunters!

Built incorporating several mature trees, the young (and young-at-heart), will be tickled by the treehouse feel of the outdoor living spaces. Both bedrooms at Painted Quail Cottage provide views of stunning Lamoka lake. A pack-n-play is provided for the little one.

The Master bedroom is located on the main floor with a Queen size bed, just off of the Living Room, with windows facing over the lake.  The second bedroom is in the basement level and has a Queen size bed and a door out onto the lower level deck.  The family room in the basement has an additonal Full size day bed for sleeping an additional 2 persons as well as a roll out single trundle bed.

Several cozy nooks provide an ideal space to curl up with a great book (bring your own or borrow one from the guest library).  
The kitchen is outfitted with gourmet upgrades perfect for cooking up family meals, fileting the day’s catch or uncorking a local bottle of wine. There is a large stainless gas range/oven and stainless fridge in the kitchen along with lovely butcher block countertops.

Make memories in the family room, if the weather spoils your outdoor plans, by utilizing the big-screen tv, Wii console, Xbox 360, or DVD player (with DVD library cratering to every age). Looking to un-plug? The collection of board and indoor games can help with that.

Outdoor activities abound here! The size of Lamoka Lake makes it superior for swimming, due to the water warming faster and higher than the surrounding larger lakes. Fish off the dock, use our lake frontage to enter the water for a swim, or gather around the chimenea for a campfire & S’mores. Lamoka lake is also centrally located to the Finger Lakes Region’s most popular attractions & activities.

Whether you’re a couple seeking a romantic weekend, a family set on sharing an unforgettable week, or a group of friends looking to unwind and connect, Painted Quail Cottage is anxious to accommodate you.

The cottage was a dream, secluded enough to feel a million miles away and cozy that it feels like home away from home. Beautifully kept property

We had a slight problem with the electronic lock and Joleen responded quickly and helped us resolve our issue.
The property is perfect for a couples get away. The many outdoor areas are great as is the area down by the water. The one bedroom has a wonderful view of the lake which is nice to wake up to every morning. The kitchen although a little small is fully stocked and met our needs perfectly. As this was our 3rd time at the property we will be returning again next year.

Prompt, courteous communication.
The home is gorgeous! Incredibly clean, well decorated, comfortable, fun space for spending time as a family. The kitchen was well stocked with supplies and there was so much to do inside the house and out. We loved fishing from the dock, playing the ring toss game, swimming in the lake, and sitting out at the picnic table. For families of younger children the gates to the dock are very thoughtful. We loved being in the "tree house"! It was a very cozy yet elegant space to relax in for a few days.

Joleen was awesome, attentive, kind, and very accommodating. She was knowledgable of the area and provided useful recommendations.
The property was perfect. It was decorated beautifully and it had everything you could need for your stay and then some. The use of space in the house is exceptional and done so that it didn't feel crammed, but just right. The beds, linens, soaps, and everything provided for our stay was top notch.

Our property manager, Joleen Glick, was very helpful in assisting us, providing specific information and accommodating our preview visit in the dead of winter.
PQ is a beautiful cottage, more like a home. Clean, fully equipped and gorgeous. Loved the multilevel decks and the lake view. Very quiet and neighbors friendly.

This is our second stay at the cottage and it was just as wonderful as the first. Its truly perfect. The cottage has everything you could possibly ever need or want, from spices to toiletries. It remains the cleanest space, not a dust bunny in sight. Now, on to the good stuff. You are literally in a tree house with amazing views from the bedroom to the dock. The decor is beautiful and perfectly designed. Finally, the location is a dream, located on a lake that warms more quickly than others and the driving distance to Keuka and Seneca are both quick. Goodness this place is glorious.

I didnt work too much with the members of your team but the communication is great!
This house was absolutely perfect! We came up for a girls weekend to visit Watkins Glen and were not disappointed. You are truly in the middle of nowhere- beautiful rolling hills, gorgeous skies. You really couldnt ask for more. The house has everything you could possibly need. Everything was decorated perfectly, it was so cute! They have toys and books for kids as well as board games and video games! We had a blast. Waking up to that lake every morning was another huge plus!! There is plenty of seating outside and the views are gorgeous. They have a picnic table, canoe and fire pit!! If you have the opportunity to check this house out I would highly recommend it! The owners have truly thought of everything. Thanks for an amazing weekend!

Wonderful experience, Joleen was incredibly helpful. Our original door code did not work and she was able to set a new one for us within minutes and send it over. Really nice to have someone happy to be helping, especially when it was raining and we just wanted to get in! Thank you!!
Exceeded our expectations beyond belief! Amazingly beautiful and relaxing setting. Everything was very clean, white linens (always crucial in hospitality), and the views were breathtaking. From the moment we spotted this cottage pulling onto the road from the top of the hill, we were so excited. The interior is just as beautiful as the exterior. Beware of the back deck, it can get very slippery if it is wet!

Joleen always responded to my questions quickly
This was our first trip to the Finger Lakes. We couldnt of picked a better place to stay at then the painted quail. We are so lucky we found this place. We took a mini roadtrip from Philadelphia and first went to Niagara Falls for 3 nights then drove to the finger lakes for 3 more nights. It was perfect place to relax after being so busy running around in Niagara.Thats what we did and then we got to just relax and enjoy the house! The cottage looks like something you would see on Pinterest or Instagram that is on your bucket list to visit. The place is super clean, everything is decorated so nicely and the place has everything you need! Plus the view of the lake!!! Even if its a little chilly outside, you still want to be out there enjoying the view. We cant wait to go back!!

What a wonderful stay. The house is beautifully decorated, well appointed and stocked with everything you will need. The location is perfect for wine tasting, cycling, and hiking. The position on the lake perfect, like others have said, a delightful tree house. Its cleaner than any other home we have rented and most hotel rooms, just spotless. We cant wait to return next year! Thank you for sharing your home.

Joleen was such a gracious host. She was friendly and warm and always got right back to our emails. She even drove out to the cabin when we had a question and helped us get settled in comfortably. It was very obvious Linger hospitality puts customers satisfaction at the highest of priorities. If I would have a rental on the lake ,I would want Linger Hospitality to manage it for me without a doubt.
The cottage was delightful. It was beautiful and clean. The kitchen was so well stocked. It seems they have thought of everything to make it a comfortable and delightful stay.The decks and dock were tops and we had such fun fishing and canoeing as a family. The fish we caught and ate were delicious. I cannot recommend this cottage enough. We will definitely be back!
