Belle's Buttercup is a 4th gen property - it's packed with character and charm but that does not come without a downside. It's old, it's rustic - you will not find high-end appliances and central A/C. The shower is a water saving head - if you like to be blasted by multi-jets, this is not for you. There were some cobwebs and cabin critters (saw a couple house spiders and worms in the ground level bathroom seeking moisture) - the property could be shored up on the outside to ensure nothing gets in. But you are in the woods, on a lake. In the dead of summer there are lake smells and humidity. We spent most of our time enjoying the lake, the fire pit, eating out, using the canoe, and fishing. Things you do on vacation. I'd visit again but in fall weather. It's a great place, fantastic location. What I expected of an older lake home.

Belle's Buttercup is a charming lakehouse with all of the amenities of home. The rooms had a lot of character, bordering on spooky, but fun! (This place should probably be on Atlas Obscura.) It has a lived in feel that I appreciate when it comes to cooking, relaxing, and enjoying time with friends and family. There is ample space and a variety of areas to gather or enjoy time alone. The balconies with table and seating were a favorite! The space on the lake was nicely arranged for campfires, stargazing, swimming and row-boating. In response to some of the other reviews. At the time of our visit, all water was clean and functional; there was also a water cooler for drinking water. There were a few bugs, minimal, but in my opinion that comes with staying in a lakeside, wooded property. The only thing I would recommend is clearing the spiderwebs, and having better cleaning implements for guests to use while visiting. There was ample signage for use of the amenities in the house but they could be clearer (namely for the hot tub and stove).

Whether enjoying a morning cup of coffee watching the sun rise over Seneca or a glass of wine as the sun sets, nothing beats the beautiful views from this house. A private dock with a fire pit provides the perfect setting for vacation relaxing, and the house is large and private with every amenity a family could want. We come back every year!

Take a step back into the past in this unique lakeside home. Enjoy the cozy, fully-equipped kitchen, relax beside one of the fireplaces, jump into the clear lake or just enjoy the view at Belles Buttercup. Interesting antiques and collectibles evoke memories of times gone by. This is a great place to get away from it all while still being close to everything you need.
