We rented the Lakeside Villa for our family vacation. There were 11 adults and 3 children, covering 4 generations of our family. The beautiful home was spacious and yet felt warm and inviting. The photos didn't do justice to the beautiful views of the lake from the many windows. The lovely covered porch on the main level became the meeting place for conversations, family game time and meals. My mother couldn't walk down the stairs often but could watch the family swimming below and enjoyed the view of Seneca lake.
We had never vacationed on this lake before but found the sandy beach perfect for the children. The warm, shallow water along the shore was perfect for the children to swim and play in and enticed everyone in for a swim.
The owner was warm and gracious and made everyone feel at home. We had her phone number and were told to call if we had any concerns.
The parking area was large and made it easy to store the boat trailers we had. It was easy to get in and out without moving others' vehicles.
The trains, which ran behind the home, went through sometimes twice daily and other days not at all. The kids loved going out to see them and most of the adults were right there with them. Even in the evenings, we really weren't bothered by the trains.
The location of The Villa was perfect. We were close to Geneva if we needed any type of store or restaurant. The golf course was just back behind Glass Factory Bay Road and the marina was just down the lake a short distance. Having city water and a sewer system made our stay that much more worry free.
Our family has vacationed on the Finger Lakes for 65 years and we were thrilled to find a home on the lake large enough so that we could continue our get togethers. We will be returning next summer to this lovely home.
