About Michael Lucent

Michael & Donna were young childhood sweethearts and then parted ways shortly after high school graduation. They each led separate lives until a mere 25 years later Michael ran into Donna; and their romance started right up where it left off! They shortly married and honeymooned in the Finger Lakes.

After visiting some wineries, Donna & Michael decided this would be the perfect 'New Way of Life,' running a winery together. They figured working together would be a fabulous way to make up for lost time!

In 2000 they bought the winery property, and turned their life's mission into learning how to start a winery---Michael was already an accomplished winemaker for the past 25 years.

Fast forward to 2008 the Pompous Ass Winery opened. Both Michael & Donna are whimsical; which they wanted to portray in their theme. As you can see the picture above, they are posing with 'Sir Jackson' the handsome character also known as 'The Pompous Ass.'

Michael Lucent purchased this house in 2011

Why Michael Lucent chose Watkins Glen

Last year in 2011, two house flanking either side of the winery property we put up for sale. Michael & Donna decided to purchase both to protect their investment; which now begs the question as what to do with these two houses?

After some deliberation, they decided to renovate and use them for weekly rentals; after all, they live in a tourist area and they are located right on the Seneca Lake Wine trail.

Every detail was by their design, having the importance of both convenience and comfort as their top priory. A house fit for a pompous ass was their motto; which is why they lovingly named the house 'Sir Jackson House.'

What makes this house unique

This is such an enchanting house to gather because of the way the floor plan is laid out. you enter into a bright and cheery expansive living room with plenty of seating and a large picture window facing the east side of the lake mountain view.

to the right is a large welcoming kitchen that can accommodate a seating of eight; has all new appliances and even a larger picture window which spans across the entire kitchen.

This house is the perfect gathering house for families to get together for holidays, birthdays, & summer vacations!

Thank you

Just want to say how much we enjoyed staying at the sir Jackson house. It was so clean and spacious. We enjoyed barbecuing out back. The helped us very quickly when we asked for a high chair and crib. They also helped us locate a missing camera that we had left behind. Thanks again. Beautiful countryside.

Perfectly Located for Wine Hopping

Also, great value for the price. The house is as advertised, and is well maintained. Kitchen is stocked with all the cooking gear you need, and a Walmart is down the road so it is easy to cook and/or grill meals to save $ for the wine! The house is located on the winery property, and you can't beat the 30% off discount on their wine just for staying there; we used it as our "house" wine.

Fun trip with friends and family!

  • 5 of 5
This is the 2nd year in a row that we've stayed at the Sir Jackson House and we love it. We do the wine trail events and this house is perfect for our group. The house has everything we need--bedding, linens, kitchen ware, etc., and is also a nice location being right next to a winery! An added perk is the 30% discount off all of the wines there. The house is clean, well kept, and roomy.

Everything as advertised

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here during the Deck the Halls Event for the Seneca Wine Trail. Everything was as advertised in the descriptions and photos. We couldn't have been more impressed with the condition of the home and furnishings. We will be staying here for any future trips to Seneca Lake.
