UPDATED AUG. 19, 2020
To help stop the spread of Covid-19 Cottage Views Bed & Breakfast is doing everything we can to protect our guests and ourselves from infection. Please note, as per the governments’ direction we will be wearing protective masks and practicing social distancing during check in. The expectation at Cottage Views is that our guests adhere to the same policy. Additionally, we are now offering accommodations without breakfast at a discounted rate and we are operating at half capacity. Booking your stay directly by calling our reservation line (607) 582-7062.
Read below a message from the Seneca Lake Wine Trail about the changes at the local wineries and eateries along the trail.
- Tastings will be by appointment only, so please call ahead or visit their websites;
- Social distancing and masks will be required;
- There will be restrictions on the size of groups, buses, and limos (at this time 6 people maximum is the standard)
WHILE COTTAGE VIEWS’ CANCELLATION POLICY IS FLEXIBLE, OUR POLICY OF 2 NIGHT MINIMUM IS NOT. We will be following a routine of having a minimum of three days pass between guest visits per specific room. To minimize the handling of credit cards and social interaction for your protection we will be taking full payment in advance.
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.
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.
