We had a wonderful time staying on Amanda's land! The campsite was a short walk through a patch of wildflowers and wild blackberries from the spot where we parked the car. The hosts welcomed us with their sweet baby in tow, and were quite helpful in making sure we had what we needed to get set up. We had a plentiful bundle of firewood waiting for us at the site, which was nice and private...no other campers in sight! They provided us with a portable commode (a bag lined bucket with a seat and a lid) to use as needed. There was a fire pit and two large, wide log cuts you can use as table tops or seats. There was plenty of space for three tents. We are searching for a home in the area, and the hosts were also very helpful in assisting with information, as they recently did the same. The best part was the night sky we were lucky enough to catch. It was a night with no moon or clouds, and we got to see the Milky Way and a few meteors! I highly recommend this site! We will be heading back for sure!
I couldn’t recommend this place more highly! Bill is a great host and quite an interesting, storied man. If you have a chance to sit and talk with him, take it. My bf and I were up for the week, and expected to pitch a tent, but the screened in porch/cabin was so amazing, we just stayed “inside.” Just wait til you turn off your light/blow out your candles at the end of the night! So pretty! There were intermittent rain showers and one big storm, but everything stayed dry....not a luxury I’m used to while camping. The firewood being provided for free was super nice. The lake is a bit of a hike down some steep terrain, but so worth it! There were two kayaks available for use and a dock to fish from. We drove around a bit during our stay and went to Watkins Glen, Taughannock Falls, and the Corning Museum of Glass, where we blew our own glass ornaments. So fun! We wanted to stay longer...and after a week of being away from warm creature comforts, that’s saying a whole lot! Totally worth booking this place...just don’t book it when we decide to return. :)
