Holiday Rental House
Our home is right in the heart of wine country and overlooks Seneca Lake from the east side, so the views are amazing and the sunsets are often filled with spectacular colors. Set among summer cottages and homes in a rustic/country-style neighborhood, our property has 75 feet of spacious lake frontage and a 10 foot wide dock. Depending on the weather and day of the week, the atmosphere on this uncongested lake ranges from calm and peaceful to joyful and fun. Our home is fully furnished and features an Arts & Crafts-style living room. There are hardwood floors in the living room, kitchen, dining room, and master bedroom, slate floors in the hallway, and carpeting in the second and third bedrooms. The master bedroom, living room, and especially the dining room (with its eight windows) all ...Our home is right in the heart of wine country and overlooks Seneca Lake from the east side, so the views are amazing and the sunsets are often filled with spectacular colors.

There are hardwood floors in the living room, kitchen, dining room, and master bedroom, slate floors in the hallway, and carpeting in the second and third bedrooms. The master bedroom, living room, and especially the dining room (with its eight windows) all have clear, broad views of the lake/sunsets. The community areas are large too (living room: 17' x 22', kitchen and dining room: 22' x 22'). Up to six people can sleep comfortably in the three bedrooms with one queen, one full-size, and two twin beds. The kitchen is fully stocked and the house has air conditioning. There is enough parking for two or three vehicles. Just outside the house is an intimate yard with a gas grill and a patio set that has cushioned seats and an umbrella. On the lakefront, there's a bonfire ring and a picnic table with an umbrella. You can borrow the owner's kayak and row boat (with oars), or use the floats/tubes, life preservers, and extra chairs that are kept in the boat shed. There's something for everyone, including swimming, boating, kayaking, floating/lounging, long walks along a dirt road through vineyards, fishing, and romantic evenings watching the sun set and drinking local wine.

Interaction with guests
At first, I usually interact with guests mostly via email, as they're deciding whether to book our lake house, and when they have a lot of questions or want to book it. Then, at least about a week before their arrival date, I email them with directions to the house and some pre-arrival information such as how to get into the house when they arrive, what to bring, etc. My husband and I also live in the same neighborhood as the house, so it's very convenient for us to drop by to help out if something is needed. Once or twice a day, guests might also see me walking our dog, Seneca, along the gravel road that leads down to the house, and they usually recognize me or our dog from the website pictures and stop to say hello. I really enjoy meeting

Great home on the lake. Wonderful host. Highly recommended. It's off the beaten path, with a long steep one lane road. Once there, it is lovely.

Spacious cottage, just steps from the lake, with a beautiful view. This cottage sleeps six people very comfortably. We loved the room with the fireplace! There is a fenced in yard for your dog. The lovely lakeside has a campfire ring and kayaks. We enjoyed visiting nearby wineries and the food at local restaurants was fantastic. Watkins Glen State Park is 20 minutes away. We had a very enjoyable and peaceful stay. The owners are nearby if needed. I highly recommend this rental.

What a nice place to get away. Everything was perfect. The house was clean and very comfortable. There is so much to do in the area. The owner was really nice and answered all my questions. We will definitely stay again.

The house is really homey. Felt right at home with the fully stocked kitchen, it had everything we need to make a really nice dinner. The view was something that you would see on a postcard. Had lunch at this really nice diner called Elf In The Oak. The area around the house really screams wine county. We must have passed 5 Wineries and a Brewery on the way to the house, the Silver Thread Winery is 5 minuets from the house. The highlight of the trip was seeing the vineyards. We'll visit again!

When we first arrived, we were happy to see the beautiful view of the lake from the house. It was so much nicer than we expected, and the first sunset we saw was very colorful and dramatic. The house was well-maintained, clean, and we really felt at-home there. The hosts were friendly, helpful and accommodating. For us, one of the major highlights was having access to the kayaks, and we made good use of them. We spent quite a bit of time down on the lake frontage because we made bonfires down there both evenings. I really don't have any complaints at all, and would recommend this property to others for sure.

We enjoyed our time in the Finger Lakes, and our stay at this property. There are many wineries nearby, and places to hike too. The kitchen, dining room, and living room are large, and the house was really clean and comfortable. We made several family dinners and breakfasts at the house, and found that the kitchen had everything we needed, for sure. There's a fenced-in yard for dogs, and so it was nice to be able to have them in the yard off-leash when we were grilling out and eating at the patio set. We would definitely recommend this house and stay there again. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

This house was bigger than we expected, and the view of the lake and sunsets were gorgeous. We felt very comfortable and relaxed. Mary was easy to deal with and helpful to me when I was planning our trip. I found it helpful that she provided information on the restaurants in the area. We liked the Stonecat Café and Danos a lot. We enjoyed the local wineries too, and had a nice hike at Taughannock Falls, south of Trumansburg. I plan to return to the same place this Fall, and I would highly recommend it to my friends.

About the neighbourhood
The surrounding area is incredibly dense with wineries overlooking the lake. You can have a great time touring the area and tasting wines. THERE ARE 10 WINERIES AND A BREWERY WITHIN A 10 MINUTE DRIVE, AND ONE WINERY WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE. The property is 15 minutes north of Watkins Glen, home of the WG International Race Track and WG Gorge. It's also surrounded by the Finger Lakes National Forest, with many nice hiking trails. You-pick fruit orchards and honor-system fruit and vegetable stands are available frequently during the summer and fall. Skyland Farm, a fine-craft gallery with items from over 500 artists and a feeding farm, is a must-see. The cuisine in the area is delicious with dining atmospheres ranging from casual to elegant.
Getting around
The best way to get around and see sights is by vehicle.
