Our beautifully restored vintage 1940's "Fireman's Cottage" is nestled on the banks of the Genesee River in Scottsville, NY. A small, quiet hamlet of a dozen or so original cottages known as Mile Wood. Centrally located, the cottage is just 15 minutes from the main Inn, 10 minutes from the airport and U of R, and just 5 minutes from the RIT campus, making this a perfect location for visiting parents, couples looking for a private getaway and a great alternative for families.
The cottage features a fully equipped kitchen with full size appliances, perfect for those cost cutting family meals. Enjoy our private outdoor deck riverside. A table/ chairs and umbrella, along with gas grill and comfy chairs makes for easy living by the water. All household linens are supplied and there is on-site laundry available for your use, making easy work for families. Bring less - play more! Amenities include a new over-sized tiled shower with double "rain" shower heads. Cable TV with VCR/DVD/CD and complimentary wireless Internet service. Our large lending library of books, puzzles, games and videos is always available for our guests use. Just bring along your favorite DVD's. A year round accommodation, the cottage is centrally heated and air conditioned for your comfort. There is a stone fireplace with wood insert for ambiance and coziness in the winter. The master bedroom has a comfortable queen size bed, and the 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds that can easily be converted into a King. The cottage sleeps four comfortably, but can easily accommodate an additional guest on the roll-away. A roll-away is available at no additional charge.
There is a boat launch nearby should you wish to bring your boat or kayaks, and many bicycle paths in the area for riding your bikes. Activities nearby include: canoeing, hiking, biking, boating, swimming, skating, beautiful lake beaches, fishing, lakes/rivers/canals, restaurants, wineries, golf courses, antique shops and more... Location, Location, Location! Just 5 minutes from the cottage is the historic Genesee Valley Park which is a Fredrick Law Olmstead designed park that is dominated by three intersecting waterways, Red Creek, the Genesee River and the New York State Barge Canal. We highly recommend this 800 acre park which is an ideal access point to a major network of trails along the river and canal as well as the route 390 bike trail and the Genesee Valley Greenway where you can swim, canoe, picnic, sunbathe, ice skate, golf, hike and bike nearby. Genesee Valley Park (see map) has two golf courses. There is the North Golf Course and the South Golf Course. Both are located off of East River Road, just north, across the river from the cottage.
