Overview

Hector Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Year-round Rental on Seneca Lake Wine Trail, Finger Lakes, NY

Conveniently located in Hector, NY, on the east side of Seneca Lake. This beautifully renovated farmhouse cottage is bordered on two sides by vineyards owned by Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards. During warmer months, enjoy a glass of wine sitting on the large back deck while surrounded by cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc grape vines. Or sit on the wrap-around porch and enjoy the cool shade and wonderful breeze. For winter rentals, the house is fully insulated and heated for a cozy winter stay.

Inside you will find hardwood floors throughout the dining and living rooms, a newly renovated kitchen with gas range, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator with in-the-door ice and water. A few steps down from the kitchen is a cozy sunroom - perfect for morning coffee! The large full bathroom includes a washer and dryer for our guests' convenience. The second floor features two bedrooms with an incredible view of the vineyards and Seneca Lake from the master bedroom.

“Hector Vineyard Cottage” sleeps four to six persons – two in each bedroom, and two on the living room futon (with a comfy 10' mattress!). A small cot is available if needed. Bedrooms feature two twin beds that can be set up as separate twins or put together as a king-size bed with a comfy king-size mattress pad - just let us know what you prefer!

A complimentary bottle of wine and winery coupons are provided to guests. Other amenities: Clean linens (sheets, pillow cases, blankets, mattress pads) provided. Public water. Charcoal grill (don't forget your charcoal), dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, ironing board and iron. Basic paper products supplied. Basic satellite TV service, excellent cell coverage area.

Hector Wine Company is just across Route 414 – perfect for walking over to enjoy their weekend live music and a glass of wine on their patio. Kirton’s Farm Market is a short walk for fresh, local produce, jellies, flowers and homemade pork or chicken BBQ.

Some of Seneca Lake’s best-known wineries and restaurants are all within less than five miles from the cottage including Wagner Vineyards & the Ginny Lee Cafe, Sheldrake Point on Seneca, Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards, Leidenfrost Vineyards, Stonecat Cafe, Red Newt Wine Cellars & Bistro, Damiani Wine Cellars, Atwater Vineyards, Two Goats Brewing, and Finger Lakes Distilling. Enjoy wine tasting, live music and other “off-hour” events hosted by the wineries and restaurants. Hector truly is a 'foodie paradise'!

Although we do not have lake access, Smith Memorial Park is just a mile away with a public boat launch, swimming beach, picnic facilities and a small playground. Lodi Point is about 10 minutes north, Clute Memorial Park is 10 minutes south, and Watkins Glen State Park is just 15-20 minutes away.

Why Jennifer L. Swain chose Hector

We fell in love with the Hector Vineyard Cottage because of its charm. With beautiful hardwood floors, a huge new deck overlooking the vineyards and its location to so many of our favorite wineries and restaurants, we knew right away it was a gem! There really is no better location on Seneca Lake!

We scheduled a girls weekend and had a blast! The farmhouse was a great location, just as described. The communication from the owners was always quick and responsive. We enjoyed ourselves immensely and plan on being back in the area again next year!
