Caywood is a beautiful, peaceful open air cabin with incredible views of Seneca lake. The wildlife is a joy to watch and listen to. My husband and I loved seeing the stars from the cabin and waking to the sounds of nature. It was a privilege to meet Bill the owner and to share his paradise for the weekend. I cant say enough about his place. A nice walk to his private area on the lake. Will definitely be back, maybe a weekend earlier in October. Thanks for your hospitality!

Our trip to Bill’s campsite was nothing short of magical. The location is awesome with dozens of wineries before and after the site on the main road, but the site itself is secluded so you have all of this private land to yourself; we came with our Shiba and she she was beside herself coming from a small NYC apt. There’s a private bathroom with shower a short walking distance away from the site in Bill’s house. During our 3 night stay, we considered leaving the property but there’s so much to do you don’t even need to. Instead, we took a short walk to the private beach, set up our hammock and fishing rods and spent most of our days there. The walk can be steep and its layered with loose rocks so wear your hiking boots. We very much enjoyed our stay and are thankful to Bill for sharing his land with us for the weekend. We will be back next Summer to enjoy the lake for sure!

Bill is an amazing host! Campsite is a very private, scenic area. The pictures don't do it justice! It has beautiful views of the lake and a good spot to watch the sunset. The porch is a cute cozy place to take in the picturesque landscape. This is a rare opportunity to spend some well needed time to be with nature and take in some breathtaking views.

We had a wonderful stay and hope to be back soon.

We LOVED our stay with Bill at Caywood Lake. Bill is a gracious, kind and accommodating host. We arrived (late) to find that Bill left lights on to guide us, potable water, and charcoal/all the things we’d need for a grill which was so thoughtful and beyond what we expected.
The property is stunning and this time of year we were delighted to see the trees turning and the water warm. The cabin itself is wonderful and has everything we needed for a private weekend getaway.

Bill was a very nice person! We loved the camp set up. It had so many things already in place, including wood, cooking tools, even the rock fire pit was in the shape of a heart. The hike down to the lake was beautiful, clear waters and a great dock! We would absolutely stay again!

We spent 3 nights here and loved every minute of it, so much so that we booked another trip up before we left. This was perfect for our 2 dogs & 3 years. The structure will well appointed and spacious and the views are beautiful. The hike to the lake is steep but fun and so worth it. Can’t wait to come back!!

This was a great place to stay at overnight! The view of the lake was beautiful and the grounds were well kept. You can decide to stay in the screened house or set up a tent. There was fire pit and two portable stove grills available with firewood and charcoal available to you as well. Grilling/cooking utensils were also available to you. Bill was super friendly and welcoming. If I had stayed longer, I would have definitely used the kayak/canoes that were available. The walk to the lake is just about 5 minutes away. I would come here again and highly recommend anyone to come stay here if they wanted to go away for a weekend, and even check out the wonderful waterfall views of Watkin Glens State Park!
