Overview

Lodi House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6

Our home is right in the heart of wine country and overlooks the 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. 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.

Further Description:

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, 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, long walks along a dirt road through vineyards, fishing, and romantic evenings watching the sun set and drinking local wine.

Further Description of Amenities:

- full kitchen with microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, and cooking/eating utensils

- satellite TV and DVD player in living room

- satellite TV in master bedroom

- high speed, wireless internet

- air conditioning

- clean linens provided

- clothes washer and dryer

- 75 feet of lake frontage

- 10 foot wide dock

- area on lakefront for launching small boats (up to 14 feet long)

- clear, broad views of the lake/sunsets from the yard and from many rooms of the house

- parking for two or three vehicles

- three bedrooms with two queen and two twin beds

- in the yard is a gas grill and patio set with cushioned seats and an umbrella

- on the lake frontage, there's a bonfire ring and a picnic table with an umbrella. You can borrow the owner's kayak and row boat, or use the floats/tubes, life preservers, and extra chairs that are kept in the boat shed

- access to the lake frontage from the yard is by way of a sturdy staircase or by a short road that goes around the neighborhood (about 1/4 mile to our frontage). The staircase has about 75 steps. The run for the steps is 11 inches, which is nice, and there are three decks with benches, in case anyone needs to rest or wants to see the view. It's also very handy to be able to drive down if you're carrying coolers, towels, etc., or are taking some small kids down all at once. The road is for limited use, especially on crowded weekends, but it is there when needed.

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 from Watkins Glen, home of the Watkins Glen International Race Track, Watkins Glen Gorge, and Glen Harbor Marina. 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. Two miles across the lake, the Rainbow Cove Restaurant has slips for boats.

Here are some of the local events.

- Finger Lakes Wine Festival, July

- Nascar races at Watkins Glen International Racetrack, Watkins Glen, NY

Great property - great area

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, clean with all the modern conveniences of home, including a wireless Internet connection. The views of the lake, especially the sunset are incredible. The waterfront area with dock is a short walk away with swimming, fishing, and boating (kayak and canoe provided) and just general relaxing by the water available. The area itself has lots of wineries, a great micro-brewery at Wagners and excellent restaurants within easy driving distance. All-in-all a wonderful vacation spot. Highly recommended!

Great Area! Nice Home!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this nice home on Seneca Lake. My husband's brother and his wife stayed with us, and the house was perfect for us. We went to the wine tasting rooms in the area during the day. We went to several nice restaurants, and also fixed a great meal together at the house. The kitchen was well stocked, and everything was just as described online. The view from the dining room is absolutely beautiful too. We'll be back!

Girls Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Very nice property, plenty of room for four of us. Enjoyed the large dining room/kitchen/family room with plenty of windows overlooking the lake. We had beautiful weather and it was very quiet and peaceful here. The dirt lane going back thru the grapevine fields was a trip, but I have a jeep, so no problem. The steps are quite steep, but we traversed these often. The Watkins Glen Gorge is a must see, so beautiful and our favorite winery was the Caywood, right nearby!

Welcoming, Cozy Home with a Beautiful Sunset

  • 5 of 5

From the first time we contacted the owners to start planning our weekend visit, we knew this was the place we would stay. The owners have excellent communication and made the planning easy. They were very accommodating even allowing us to bring our dogs. The pictures do not do this house justice, it is much larger in person. Everything you could possibly ever need to have a wonderful vacation on the lake is in this house. The kitchen is completely stocked, we were able to cook a few meals at the house. The three bedrooms were cozy and the air conditioning worked beautifully. The yard is also fenced in, and that was a bonus for us! The beach is a quick walk, where humans and canines alike enjoyed sitting and swimming off of the dock. The views of the lake from the house are beautiful, especially at sunset. My husband and I both felt at home during our stay. We would definitely recommend this house and stay at this house again. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Amazing Sunset View!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for three days of rest and relaxation and could not have been more pleased! The home looked just like the pictures online. The views of the lake from the dining room were absolutely amazing! The sunsets were beautiful! There are some really good wineries nearby too- we liked Silver Thread, Lamoreaux Landing, and Shalestone a lot. We'll be back!!!

Owner's Response: Samantha, we're so glad to hear that you had a relaxing experience at our lake house, and that you liked the winery that's right in our neighborhood, Silverthread. The owners of Shalestone Winery live and grow grapes in the neighborhood as well, and many people have made comments in our guest book that they love the drive down to the house through the vineyards.

A great time in the Finger Lakes!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this lake house with another couple and our dog. We really enjoyed our time in the Finger Lakes- we went winetasting and sightseeing during the day, and made dinners in the house each night. We liked the waterfalls in the area, such as Toughanock Falls near Trumansburg and Ithaca. Our dog loved the yard, and chased the little chipmunks around a lot. We got to watch several storms approach from across the lake, which was fun. The lake house had everything we needed to have a great time in the Finger Lakes, and we highly recommend it.
