Description

Welcome to Blackbird Cottage! On a quiet dead-end street, Blackbird Cottage is really 2 cozy bungalows for the price of one. This is a perfect cottage for a couple or a group of up to four looking to relax on Seneca Lake. The main cottage offers 2 bedrooms (1 queen bedroom, 1 full bedroom, linens provided) plus a full bath (tub with shower, four towels provided), fully outfitted kitchen including cooking spices and all pots/pans you will ever need, lovely lake-view dining area with panoramic views, and comfortable living room for relaxing and watching cable TV or your favorite movies. At beach level, our newly renovated lakeside cabana (no sleeping facilities) is surrounded by decking and lounge chairs, just a few steps from your own boat dock and beach, and is outfitted with mini-fridge, bar, blender and comfy furniture giving you a wonderful place to relax at the end of a day on the lake. There is a small fire pit on the beach front as well for evening fires. Between the two buildings is a lovely landscaped patio with a patio set, lounge chairs, gas grill (propane included!), shade trees and of course lake view. It doesn't get better than than this! The cottage ceilings are fairly low due to the fact it was originally built in the 1950's. We are also on a quiet dead-end street with close neighbors along the lake who enjoy the relaxing nature of the area. We can accommodate up to four guests during your stay under our renter's permit.
Whether visiting the area for our wonderful wineries, getaway, romantic weekend, or fishing our world-famous lake trout, you will love Blackbird Cottage on Seneca Lake!
We just bought a two person canoe for the 2016 season which is located under the lower deck. Please use at your own risk and use responsibly. Great for fishing and sunsets! Life jackets are provided as well.
Washer/Dryer in the basement for use.
Blackbird Cottage is a centrally located getaway in Dresden, New York, at the intersection of Routes 14 and 54 and near many of the region's award-winning wineries on the Seneca and Keuka Lake Wine Trails. Nearby towns of Penn Yan, Geneva, Watkins Glen, and Hammondsport are a short drive away and offer shopping, antiquing, and more. We are 6 miles from groceries, a local butcher, gas, restaurants, and movie theaters. 8 miles from a state boat launch and boat rentals. A public playground, beach and tennis courts are 1 mile from the cottage. On a rainy day, enjoy the cottage's cozy living room outfitted with a Vizio 32-Inch HDTV as well as a selection of books and magazines ... or play board games or cards at the dining table as you enjoy the lake view. An auxiliary sound system is in the living room so bring your ipod with!
Our dock can hold a small to medium sized boat. 3 cleats installed. 3ft depth off the end with a sandy bottom so please keep that in mind while swimming. No diving, of course. Boat lift is under repair at the moment so please inquire if that is needed for your stay.
Dresden is a rural area offering scenic drives through farmland and rolling hillsides of grape vineyards and past beautiful natural sights such as waterfalls. As well as boating, fishing, and other lake pursuits, nature lovers and active travelers will love the proximity to the Keuka Outlet Trail for biking, hiking, and exploring. Whether you seek outdoor adventure in your kayak or on your mountain bike or you prefer a stroll through antique stores followed by a glass of wine at one of our fabulous local wineries, you will love your stay at Blackbird Cottage on Seneca Lake!
 Although we are kid friendly, we highly recommend life jackets at all time when on the beach front along with proper supervision. We also require renters to be over the age of 25. By booking you agree with this policy and comply with the request that the renting party is over the age of 25. No pets allowed.
We look forward to hosting you!

Joleen was very sweet and helpful in booking my trip with her. The instructions left in the house for closing time were very useful and detailed.

The home was very humble and just what myself and my boyfriend needed for our stay. There was a beautiful view of the lake and we felt very comfortable and just at home. The book supplied with check in and check out information had a list of wineries and places to eat in the area. It was 2 bedrooms, even had a pull out couch, and was pretty clean when we arrived. This cottage is very good for one or 2 couples that are low maintenance looking for an experience at the beautiful wineries and eateries around. I definitely recommend and will be returning shortly!

Perfect spot for a weekend away. My wife and I needed a weekend away, so I began searching for accommodations in the Finger Lakes (just a three hour drive from our Central PA home). After looking at many properties, we settled on Blackbird Cottage. It was perfect. When we arrived, we were greeted with a warm, clean, and cozy cottage complete with a complimentary bottle of wine and a stunning view of the lake. The fireplace made things feel very comfortable despite the fact that it was the middle of February. Blackbird Cottage is in the perfect location. It's in the tiny town of Dresden on a dead end street, giving us the privacy and quiet we were looking for. But it's located smack dab in between Penn Yan, Geneva, and Watkins Glen. We were able to take advantage of the many wineries, breweries, distilleries, etc around both Seneca Lake and Keuka Lake...and we took advantage of the dining, shopping, etc from the three surrounding cities. We will be back!

Joleen and team were very responsive to my questions before booking and answered all of my questions after booking. We also needed to get propane during our visit for the gas grill outside. After I called to inquire about it, they took care of it before the day was over and we grilled some great pork chops that night!

The cottage was very clean and very well equipped. The kitchen, which we used extensively to cook evening dinners, had everything we needed. All of the appliances were clean and worked well. The outside of the property is lovely and we enjoyed sitting at the table with wine and snacks in the evening and also sitting at the end of the dock. We just wish the weather had been a bit warmer so we could have enjoyed the outside more. We hope to visit the Finger Lakes region again and would love to stay at the Blackbird Cottage when we do!
