Beautiful lakefront home overlooking Seneca Lake, located just north of Watkins Glen.Ideal for honeymooners, urban professionals, families, or anyone looking to just get away, relax and enjoy lovely sunsets. During the summer, this is an active beach with neighboring kids and dogs having fun.
This new lakefront home is conveniently located 6 miles north of Watkins Glen in the heart of Finger Lakes wine country. Completed in 2009, this traditional timber frame home is perched on a bluff overlooking Seneca Lake. There is a short downhill walk to the beach where you will find picnic tables, a canoe, kayak, and a sailboat. Feel free to bring your own boat or watercraft; there are several nearby launch ramps. The 90 feet of beautiful lakefront has two docks, a lakefront grill, a fire ring, and is a perfect place to relax under the large willow or enjoy the lake.
First floor of this brand new 1,600 square- foot lakefront home includes an open layout with kitchen, dining area, and living area and lake views from every room. Two large sliding glass doors open out to the 26 foot glass paneled deck. With its patio table and chairs, the deck is the perfect spot to relax, and enjoy the lovely view with morning coffee or lunch. Two bedrooms and a full bathroom complete the first floor. The second floor features a generous master bedroom with full bath (with dual shower heads) and a loft overlooking the first level. Comfortable contemporary furnishings add to the pleasing lakefront ambiance.
“Willow Point” sleeps six to eight persons – two in each bedroom, and two in the loft area. Great room floors are quarter sawn pine with tiled kitchen and main floor bath; bedrooms are wall-to-wall carpet. The lake house is fully insulated and has a beautiful propane gas stove in the great room. Above and behind the house are two parking areas that can easily accommodate 4 cars. It is possible to drive to the beach though 4 wheel drive is recommended. With spectacular sunsets and starlit nights, “Willow Point” offers beautiful views of Seneca Lake to the west with wooded views to the east.
Other amenities: Clean linens (towels, sheets, pillow cases, blankets) provided. Potable water. Gas grill, dishwasher, microwave. Canoe, kayak, sailboat and life jackets. For the moment, there is no internet or cable TV though cell phone reception is excellent.
In 2004, we were lucky enough to find this beautiful lakefront property for sale - just the land. We spent the next several years designing and building our lake house ourselves. From starting with the Douglas fir timber frame through finishing with walnut and pine that we cut ourselves, the home is a craftsman's dream. Our hope is to welcome guest renters for several (but not all) weekends throughout the year to our home to enjoy the house, the lake, and the beautiful surroundings.
The Owner purchased this house in 2009
We've been living in the Finger Lakes region for over 20 years. Owning lakefront property was a dream of ours since we arrived in Ithaca. We specifically chose the east side of Seneca Lake because it is in the heart of Finger Lakes wine country, fine dining, and close to Watkins Glen.
This home exudes comfort. The open layout offers serene lake views from every window. The 100 feet of lake front are delightful. You can sit on the dock and watch the sun set to the west - directly across the lake. There is a spectacular willow tree on the beach offering shade during the hottest days of summer.
My husband and I just returned from a week long stay at Beth and Tim's beautiful lakeside home with some of our family. The property was even better than it looked in pictures. The owner's were welcoming and kind and the home had everything that we could have needed. I loved practicing yoga then drinking coffee on the deck. We had a blast throwing our nieces in the water from the dock. Just a wonderful week overall.
My wife and I along with two other young couples stayed here recently for a weekend getaway. The property was perfect for our group size with three nice bedrooms. The location was ideal within a 10 minute drive to all of our favorite FL wineries. The owners were very welcoming and easy to work with. We will definitely try to rent this house again. Thanks Tim and Beth.
Willow Point was beautiful. The owners were great. I would recommend this property to anyone. (I already have) There was everything you need at the home. Again, it was very beautiful there. It was so nice waking up & having coffee on the deck. We went to a few wineries, but really enjoyed sitting on the deck. We all want to stay there again. I have to get the date of the Watkins Glen race in August. Coudn't get the calendar to work. We would like to reserve it for August 11th till the 14th. Please let me know if it is available. Happy New Year Tim & Beth.
