The space
This cottage is set along Higgins Creek on natural wood and lawn. It was lovingly restored by my family from a small hunting camp to the beautiful space it is. We chose the iris as a theme in honor of our mother and grandmother who lived just down the road for more than 5 decades.

From the large back deck you can hear the stream and watch the fawns and deer coming down to drink. The front porch is available to enjoy as well. The are two fireplaces, 1 gas in the main room and 1 electric in the master bedroom. There are two bedrooms off of the main living, kitchen and dining room.

This is a quiet country road perfect for a run, walk or bicycle. (If you don't have a bike, ask and we will make sure something is available. Maybe even our antique Two-fer (two-seater). Use for hunting is available as it is close to many state forests. The lawn and woods are yours to enjoy but please note this is home to wild animals and plants. Be wise. The cottage is 15 minutes from Letchworth Park, 20 minutes from Swain Ski Slope, 45 minutes from Holiday Valley, 50 minutes from Rochester or Buffalo airports, 1 hour 10 minutes drive to Niagara Falls, 3 hours from Toronto. Many State parks, natural areas and similar are within easy day trips. Houghton College is located about 5 miles away. Ask for any additional outdoor recommendations.
