House Policies

FRAUD ALERT – Cottage Views does not book through any 3rd party entities, such as Craig’s List, etc., please call us directly to reserve your room.

Thank you for considering Cottage Views as your Finger Lakes get-away destination.  We live at the Inn full time and we welcome you to our home. Please note that we are a smoke free environment, and heavy smokers may wish to seek alternate accommodations.  Cottage Views is also a TV Free Zone.  Wi-Fi is available.

For the comfort of all guests, we do not accommodate children or pets.  Please note that the use of Cottage Views property is for overnight guests only.  Unfortunately, we cannot allow extra guests to visit during your stay.

Due to county and state requirements we are unable to host dinner parties, and all kitchen related activities (such as cooking, making coffee or tea) are restricted to breakfast time and must be conducted by staff only.  Guests who do not observe these policies may be assessed for damages and will be charged accordingly.

As many of the local eateries are seasonal, dinner reservations are recommended.  View our dining page for recommendations to some of our favorite places.

Incense, candles, or any other open flame is strictly forbidden in guest rooms.

Most weekends are a two night minimum stay.

Our home was originally built in 1800.  Please be kind to the plumbing and do not flush objects in toilets.

Wheel Chair Access is not available.

We look forward to meeting you soon.
