My husband and I wanted a small lakeside cottage on Keuka Lake for the end of the summer and this cottage fit the bill in most respects. Elfe and Aunt Carol were wonderful hosts, and were both extremely warm, friendly, helpful and responsive.
The setting and location were perfect, and we really enjoyed sitting on the dock, using the kayaks, and using the house as a base to explore the area vineyards and markets. Our only problem was the weather was unusually cool for September and the heating system in the cottage was pretty noisy and we had trouble sleeping. If you are planning on being there in the warmer weather and won't be needing the heat, then no problem!
I had the best time at Keuka Lake! Elfe was a wonderful host and arranged for us to meet with her aunt to get the keys. Everything went smoothly. Elfe even suggested places to check out in the area and her aunt left us with a great map. The cottage was so lovely and cozy and had everything we needed. The lake was wonderful and warm. All the furniture was really comfortable. The house is far from the road so it is quiet and peaceful. The best part is the dock by the lake and the pictures do a great job of depicting just how wonderful it is. My family and I had a wonderful time. I hope we can go back. Check out the finger lakes region and stay in this warm and inviting cottage!
We had a wonderful time at Elfe's cottage! The location was beautiful, and the lake water was crystal clear! We had a great time relaxing on the swing, looking out over the lake, and exploring the nearby area. Everything was clean, comfortable, and the owner was available for any questions that we had. The neighbors were very friendly as well! We would definitely stay here again!
This cottage was exactly what we were looking for. Very quiet, relaxing and comfortable. Host was very accomodating. Great neighbors and right in the middle of wine country. We spent many mornings sitting on the dock drinking coffee and enjoying the lake front. We were only 2 hours from Niagara Falls and about an hour from the Gorge. The countryside is beautiful. What a wonderful vacation place. We would definately love to visit the area again and would definately recommend this cottage.
Elfe's place was great! It was perfect for our stay. Convenient to the subway and many local groceries, shops and restaurants. Elfe was very helpful and full of information. She answered all my questions promptly and put me completely at ease about my first AIRBNB stay.
Her apartment was just as described. Even better! It was charming and very welcoming. It was just like we had walked into a friend or relative's home. If we had forgotten anything at home, I feel pretty sure from looking around that it would have been there.
Her kitties are the best! Playful and very loving!
My daughter is in school in NJ and will probably be transferring to the city next year. I feel very sure that if it is available that we will be at Elfe's again!
The host canceled my reservation 21 days before arrival.
Our stay went off without a hitch. The apartment is conveniently located near the subway (express 4 train was great!) and several restaurants and grocery stores. We experienced no problems arriving or leaving. Everything in the apartment was in working order and well maintained.. Elfe provided detailed instructions for the cats and promptly answered questions. The cats were very sweet, gentle and easy to take care of.
Overall, It was a nice, comfortable place to come back to.
Thanks again for a good experience!
I had a great time on my trip and would very happily rent from Elfe again. The apartment was just as described, it was simple, clean, cosy and central. Elfe was very easy to communicate with; when I had questions she responded quickly, even when on one occasion I needed to contact her later in the evening. Check-in and check-out was very straightforward. I'm really grateful to Elfe for making my trip so easy.
The Private 1 BR, steps to Rittenhouse is a simple and clean apartment, perfect for short term visitors.
The apartment is very central. Without a vehicle I was able to arrive, explore the city, and depart easily using public transportation.
My wife and I stayed and Elfe's and we had a wonderful time. She answered every question promptly before we checked in and the apartment was as advertised--delightfully decorated, very clean, and close to the 2/3 line (as well as the Brooklyn Museum and Botanical Gardens)! Her cats are sweet companions. She had great recommendations on where to eat and was absolutely a wonderful host! We'd recommend staying here to anyone and happily stay visit again.
Elfe and friends were very friendly, quiet and went the extra mile to leave the home in a clean state.
Elfe was a great guest and I would highly recommend her for any future stays. She was easy to communicate with and is an experienced Airbnb user (place was left immaculate and all house rules were followed). I welcome her back anytime!
Elfe and her brother PJ stayed with us. Easy going, relaxed, down to earth and happy - what more can one want from life and guests?! I know, I know, New Yorkers relaxed, but it's all true. Fellow Airbnb hosts know how to make life easy on other hosts. She was a clean and very responsible guest. Trust me you will enjoy hosting Elfe and we can highly recommend her to other Airbnb hosts.
Response from Elfe:
We had such a great time, Evan! I wish we could have met Sarah, but I am sure we'll be back!
Elfe was a great guest. She was very easy to communicate with and was very exact in her estimates of arrival/departure time. She is welcome back any time!
Elfe was a wonderful guest. She was friendly, easy to communicate with and left the apartment very clean. She is very experienced with airbnb stays and hosting! I would love to host her again in Cambridge.
Elfe is the most delightful guest, and she is lovely to communicate with. Although we never met in person, but i feel like she is old friend of mine. She is my 5 stars guest! I will welcome her anytime in the future.
Elfe's stay was seamless and she was really pleasant to communicate with. She was an extremely respectful guest. I wouldn't hesitate to host her again!
Elfe is the best guest you could ever have staying over! She's very communicative, respectful and easy going. We really enjoyed the time she spent with us, sharing our mutual travelling experiences around the world over a glass of Pinotage. Hoping to catch up with her once again somewhere...
Elfe is a big and sweet girl !
very laid back and modest...she is travelling the world and dubai was a short layover.
she was easy going and very moderate with things.
we had a nice sharing in her short stay.
lucky to have her met and hope to see her here again or maybe in brocklyn...who knows :)
thanks Elfe !
Elfe communicated very clearly and timely and was a pleasure to talk to. She was flexible, easy going and very neat and respectful of my place. I would recommend her highly to any host and will not hesitate to host her again.
My family always stays at Elfe's when they are in town since I have two kids and live near by. I highly recommend her cozy, clean, private apartment (which is in a great Brooklyn location by the way)!
