Thank you for your review. We are always pleased to hear what our guests like about our little cottage. The creative husband and wife team of Jeff Schuknecht and Bobbe Punzel-Schuknecht, better know as WIlliraye Studio, has created many wonderful and whimsical figurines throughout the years. We carry the largest selection of these desired collectibles in the Southern Finger Lakes of New York State. We recently began carrying the locally-produced Chef Lerman's sauces and dressings and these have quickly become our number one selling gourmet food product line. We are glad that you enjoyed his Cuke-A-Dilly Sauce and Salad Dressing. We have personally tried all of his products and find them all to be quite delicious.

Thank you for your kind words. We believe that Corning Wax Works candles are the finest jar candles that you will ever buy. The scents are amazing and they burn slowly and evenly. We hope that the next time you need a candle for a gift or for your home that you will come visit us.
