Are the apartments available for rent?

Yes, the first residents are already moved into La Bourgade on Seneca! If you're interested in renting, please submit a rental inquiry ASAP.

Can I see photos of the houses?

Check out the Classic and Spacious 2 Bedroom gallery photos on their respective pages. We're happy to show you around to give you a sense of the community, the layouts, and, most importantly, the gorgeous lake views, too. Indicate a time/day that suits you best with your rental inquiry, and we'll get in touch. Our address is: 3690 La Bourgade Lane, Burdett, NY 14818

How are the houses heated?

Each house is heated with a propane-fired cast iron imitation wood stove, which is controlled by a thermostat in the living room. All of the cottages are incredibly warm. The heat circulates throughout the house really well, and there is also electric baseboard heating in the downstairs bedroom and bathroom.

What are average utilities? 

We anticipate a monthly bill of $95 for electric and gas. (Water is free.)

Are there any additional fees?

You're in luck. We don't have any maintenance fees. 

Are the apartments dog-friendly? Do you allow pets?

We allow up to three pets per cottage. No pet deposit is required, but we strictly require that all dogs must get along well with other dogs. Only well-behaved pets (cats and dogs only), please.

We have a dog park on the pipeline for the community, but one won't be installed until 2019. The dog park at Boiceville Cottages is very popular, so we're eager to add that feature at La Bourgade. 

Are the houses handicap accessible?

The front entrance and first floor are handicap/wheelchair accessible. There are no steps to enter the house and the doors are wide enough to navigate a wheelchair. The second floor has a staircase leading up, and therefore is not wheelchair accessible. 


Do you require a deposit?

Yes, a security/damage deposit equal to one month's rent is required—with $500.00 to be paid at the signing of the lease and the balance due seven days before the start of the lease. 

Can I review a lease?

Yes, check out the La Bourgade on Seneca lease. If you're interested in renting, submit a rental inquiry, and we'll send you a completed lease for your review and signature. 

Do you have other locations?

Yes, Boiceville Cottages is our sister tiny house community in Brooktondale, New York. Located 15 minutes to Ithaca, New York, Cornell University, and Ithaca College, Boiceville Cottages has 140 tiny rental houses, two dog parks and is home to many graduate students, couples, families, and seniors. 

Are there nearby grocery stores, restaurants, and wineries?
