Beautiful House, Great Location For Wine Tasting

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and super clean, even nicer than the pictures, and easily accommodated our group of 12. The location was perfect for beer and wine tastings, as its right in the middle of Lake Seneca. It was also just a 20 minute drive to downtown Geneva, where we had a great dinner on Friday night. We will definitely be back!

Beautiful!!! Its our second visit and we plan on another. Location is perfect ~ half way up the lake. House is amazing! Property is awesome ~ everything you could possible need is here. Great for family trips or hanging with friends and hitting the wine trail. Never stayed at the same place twice till we found Herbst's hideaway. Love this house!!!

Amazing!

  • 4 of 5

Very impressed by the location and house. We went with many little ones in tow but the house was the perfect setup for kids and adults. Loved being right on the water and the house had everything you need! Matt was very accomidating to us and answered all our questions. Great brewery at the end of the road and wineries were all around! Would recommend a stay here to anyone! The kids and adults loved the boats provided. The park in Geneva has a sprikler park when we needed an afternoon away. Great house! Thanks again Matt!!!!

Perfect house for our get-away weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought our children, spouses and grandchildren here for Memorial Day Weekend. The house was perfect; just as pictured and described. Everything we needed was here and it was beautiful inside and out. We couldn't have been any closer to the water! Even though it was early in the season and too cold for water activities, we spent a lot of time outside. Very peaceful. In addition to the home and just relaxing, we also enjoyed Corning Glass Museum, Watkins Glen and wineries - all fairly close. We all said we would love to come back later in the season when we could rent a boat and have fun in the water! Good communication with owners was a plus. Thanks for a great weekend!

Lovely, accommodating home on the lake.

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect weekend getaway for a group of ladies on a mission to enjoy wine! The home is gorgeous and has lovely views of Seneca Lake from multiple levels. The home is very true to the pictures and amenities detailed. 12 people occupied the home for the weekend and we enjoyed the common kitchen / dining / living area for a gathering place but also enjoyed the privacy of the individual bedrooms. While it was too cold to enjoy the outdoor features, everyone commented on what a lovely place this would be to rent in the summer months. The owners were very accommodating and great to work with, answering any questions I had. We enjoyed our weekend at Herbst Hideaway!

Perfect vacation rental in Finger Lakes

  • 5 of 5

We were five retired couples who rented Herbst Hideaway for four nights in late October. The house is exactly as advertised, exceptionally clean and the best stocked house we've ever rented (20 years renting in the Finger Lakes!). All the toilet paper, kitchen staples, kleenex, etc which we brought went right back into our cars. The open floor plan was comfortable for all 10 of us. The large dining room table was a treat; 10 chairs fit comfortably. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. Many of us felt the beds were better than our own personal beds at home. Plenty of blankets and pillows. Plenty of high quality towels were provided and the bathrooms were well designed, clean, and easy to share between all of us. We slept well and relaxed easily in this house. Because we were five couples, one couple used the bunk beds which are in a alcove upstairs, not enclosed in a room. We cooked all our dinners, breakfasts and one lunch so we used the kitchen alot. It was a nice size for multiple cooks with appropriate pots, pans and utensils for any cooking you want to do. The supply of plates, bowls and silverware was beyond the house capacity so you don't run out! The colder time of year meant no time on the lake BUT the house's close location to the water made it feel like you were perched over the lake. All you see is water when you look out the expansive windows from the open living area! Just spectacular! Beautiful sun rises greeted every day and we bundled up to enjoy our coffee out on the deck. There is a nice sitting area up stairs that provides room to spread out and a few of us did Yoga in the morning in that space. TV reception was fine; we had some struggles with the Internet due to bad weather that blocked the signal coming into the house (we don't think it is hard wired to the house). The WIFI was always a strong signal but sometimes the Internet was too weak coming in. Heat was set by the owner and was comfortable the entire time. Parking is adequate but you need to be careful to keep an access open for the one house just beyond this one. Fortunately we only had 4 cars for 5 couples. We would have needed to park one car about 1/4 mile away otherwise which isn't a problem as you see others do that in the small community of houses on this road. The sound system inside was very enjoyable too. This house is really a great house for a vacation rental!
