Guestbook comments from the owner
We really enjoyed our stay here whilst visiting family in Geneva. However, we didn't get to use the cottage too much as we had the birth of our grandaughter Lena on the 12th October, which has kept us very busy! The soccer season takes up our time too !



It was lovely to be near family and friends, but have our own space in your home-from-home cottage.



Thank you for everything,

Barbara & Nik

I am a stay at home grandmother who loves to shop and decorate. Mike is a technician at Verizon telephone in Geneva. We love to spend time with family on the lake or go for a ride on our motorcycle through the country side. We were both raised in this area and could not think of a better place to live and raise our two girls.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

We have lived on the lake for twenty eight years. When this home, five houses from ours went up for sale, we decided to buy it to rent out as a vacation home. We wanted to allow others to enjoy the lake as we have for a reasonable price. We have added toys every year to enjoy the water, we have added two kayaks this January. We have truly enjoyed meeting some wonderful new friends who are now regulars. Our goal is for you to have a great vacation and enjoy Seneca Lake. Our feed back from the last five years has been all positive as you can see from our reviews from past renters. Come enjoy a Taste Of Serenity on Seneca Lake

Taste of Serenity is a great peaceful place in a older residential neighborhood. Located one mile off the main road means no traffic noise. The east side of the lake is the perfect side as the sun rises in the back yard and sets over the lake. The west wind over the lake most often provides a cooling breeze on those so hot summer days.

NAME FITS THE HOUSE AND LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Our second stay at Taste of Serenity and we are already thinking about our next one. The house is so clean and comfortable and includes everything you could possibly need while on vacation. The fall week could not have been better...perfect weather for sitting outdoors on the Adirondack chairs, watching the sailboats go by with a background of fall foliage and a glistening lake, while sipping finger lake wines. For us theater lovers, we even went to Auburn's Merry-Go-Round Theater to see Hank Williams Lonesome Highway and got to meet George Wendt (aka NORM from Cheers) who performed in the show. He graciously posed for photos with us. A short drive in the morning took us to the Lakefront Park for a 3 mile walk along the northern end of Seneca Lake. And, my husband would tell you there is excellent road bicycling. We hope to stay at Taste of Serenity in 2015 to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We even bought a special bottle of wine which should be aged perfectly for the occasion.

TASTE OF SERENITY IS A TASTE OF QUIET TIME AT THE LAKE WHILE ENJOYING THE WATER (AND THE WINE)

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place: clean, nicely decorated and just as the listing pictures revealed. The owners went out of their way to grant us this particular week. From the aluminum dock to the front doorknob this cottage is as you would have it for your own, including linens, kitchen items, and of course, boats!!! Situated on the east shore (maximum daylight and incredible sunsets) in a quiet neighborhood of owner-occupied homes and just 6 miles from Geneva, the location and the cottage was perfect in every way.

Visit Wegman's for the freshest groceries and those delicious pastry items for breakfast.

This cottage is truly a gem

PRICELESS!!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful stay we had at "Taste of Serenity"! Kathy and Mike thought of everything possible to make our time at their lake house just like home. Our greeting gift of Finger Lakes wine and flowers was just the beginning...there was nothing we wanted for during our stay. The furniture was comfortable, especially the Adirondack chairs where we began and ended each day. We tried our hands at kayaking and we are hooked! Our kids and grandkids visited us during our two weeks....all of them returning for more time. We tried out all of the kayaks and paddleboat...at the same time and had a ball!
Kathy and Mike were very helpful and considerate in so many ways - making us feel as though we were at home, suggestions for restaurants, sharing Missy their dog. The cottage and grounds were extremely neat and well kept. The pictures don't do it justice!
We did visit a few wineries in the area - Ventosa had a great lunch! Dinner at Halseys in Geneva was great! Ice cream at the Long Pier at the end of a day...For the most part we stayed at the cottage and enjoyed every minute of it!
We would definitely recommend "Taste of Serenity" - as a matter of fact, we are going back again next year!

LOVELY HOLIDAY HOME WITH FANTASTIC LAKESIDE VIEWS & BOATS...KIDS' PARADISE!

Lovely holiday home with fantastic lakeside views & boats...kids' paradise!
  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful few days here with our young family. The home was very cozy & clean and well stocked. We loved Grilling outside with amazing lake view and made lots of use of the many boats. Our kids were in heaven! The owners live nearby and were super friendly, even kindly posting clothes on we had inadvertently left. This quiet and peaceful location on the shores of Lake Seneca is the perfect place to relax and unwind- and shops & amenities of Geneva are but a short drive away. Highly recommended!

TASTE OF SERENITY

  • 4 of 5
This cottage is darling and has all the conveniences of home. It is very clean and well kept. The owners were more than helpful with anything we needed. There are a ton of pamphlets at the cottage that explain the area and things to do. It was my first trip to NY and the lakes are breath taking. We took a road trip to Cooperstown which is a 2hr45min drive each way. Also went to Watson Glen for a 3 hour sail boat ride. This takes about 30 minutes to get to and you follow the lake all the way there. There are an abundancy of restaurants in the area at very reasonable prices. I would definately recommend this property to anyone.
