Overview

Dresden House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Seneca Solitude is a year-round cottage that is tucked away just a mile and a quarter off Route 14. Travel through rolling farmlands and down our private drive (shared with two neighbors) and you will feel like you are miles away from the world.

Seneca Solitude has everything to make your lakefront vacation memorable, relaxing and fun! We like to call the view from our Great Room windows “the Million Dollar View”. It feels as if you are standing in the middle of the lake itself as you drink in the panoramic view! This view is shared by the kitchen/dining room, master bedroom and 3rd bedroom/family room.

One of the most compelling reasons for you to rent our home is our beautiful lakefront and breathtaking view of Seneca Lake. We have 110 feet of level lakefront for you to enjoy. This is great if you are bringing the kids since the little ones can safely play at the water’s edge. Our dock extends 50 feet out into Seneca Lake, long enough for you to get a running start and jump off! The dock opens up into a wide space at the end. There is a picnic table out there so you can enjoy your meals or snacks out on the lake. Sip your morning coffee, a glass of wine or just relax in the Adirondack chairs that have been placed out there for you as you soak in the breathtaking view of Seneca Lake at her widest point. There is also a deck, with covered pergola, accessible from the great room and master bedroom, with a brand new tile dining table, hanging lights to illuminate your evenings outside and outdoor speakers to listen to your favorite tunes. We have two kayaks and a paddleboat for those who want to venture out onto the lake. The kids will love making s’mores over our fire pit or roasting hot dogs for a campfire dinner!

Do you like to cook? Our kitchen has been updated with you in mind! A new stove with ventilation, new countertops, center island, and all the implements and utensils you will need to whip up wonderful meals are at your fingertips. There is also a new grill if you would prefer to cook outside and enjoy eating your meals alfresco! The kitchen is two steps up from the great room and designed to give you the same amazing view!

Our Great Room is just that: Great! If you want to take yourself indoors for a while and still enjoy our beautiful view, this is your room! Relax on our comfy sofa and loveseat with recliners while watching the 51” flat screen HDTV. If you would just like to read a book or look out over the lake with a glass of wine, the other side of the great room has another loveseat for you to curl up on. Games, puzzles and a blu-ray player are also available for your entertainment. Satellite TV, including HBO, Cinemax, Showtime and Starz, and Internet access complete the picture! The house has central air condition to keep you cool on hot summer days!

Our bonus room functions as an extra gathering space during the day and converts to a private 3rd bedroom with a queen-sized Murphy bed at night. If the kids want a space for themselves, this is the room for them, with a 42-inch flat screen HDTV available.

The master bedroom has a 32-inch flat screen HDTV as well as an ensuite bathroom that has just been renovated. It contains a tiled bathtub/shower combination, beautiful tiled floors and walls and a round porthole window to truly make you feel like you are afloat on Seneca Lake! Wake to an amazing view of the lake every morning from your bed; what a great way to start your day! Bring your iPod and you can listen to your favorite music on the ihome alarm clock on your nightstand.

There is a second remodeled bathroom with a new tiled shower and tiled walls and floor. Complementary toiletries are available to tide you over in case you’ve forgotten anything from home!

Our second bedroom contains a full sized bed and a 26-inch flat screen HDTV also. It is a cozy, intimate space to rest up and dream about your next day on Seneca Lake!

We also have a semi-private alcove with a bunk bed that is great for the kids!

Come and make Seneca Solitude your base of operations for your Finger Lakes vacation! If you are renting for the week, start your vacation with a complementary bottle of wine, from one of our favorite Seneca Lake wineries, waiting for you!

About Michael Denio

Like us on Facebook at Seneca Solitude!

Michael Denio purchased this house in 2012

Why Michael Denio chose Dresden

We have been visiting the Finger Lakes area for 25 years. We began looking for a house on Seneca Lake a few years ago and finally found one that we fell in love with. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

What struck us most about this home is the amazing panoramic view from the Great Room and the gorgeous lakefront! We have completed renovations to the kitchen and bathrooms and have updated the decor and amenities. We are far enough from the main road to give you that 'getting away from it all' feeling, but close enough so that you can easily get to all the wonderful places that the Finger Lakes have to offer!

Lovely home, well equipped~

  • 5 of 5

A lovely very well equipped home! Owners are very responsive and reply immediately to any questions. The location was a little more remote and secluded than we prefer. It was a good 25+ min any time we wanted to go out to eat. The internet was basically not working most of our stay....frustrating! Although the deck is picturesque, it is rather dangerous for children and adults as there is only a rope railing. A section was broken during our stay, so we had to block access from our grandchildren. We would suggest a solid sturdy railing especially for a rental.

Otherwise we enjoyed our stay! The weather was gorgoeus, the views of the lake fantastic. It was fun to have the kayaks and paddle boat, sitting on the dock was lovely!

The complimentary bottle of wine was such a nice touch! Thanks so much!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, Marcia! We did have a lot of problems with our internet service this summer. We have since replaced it with a Verizon wifi hotspot and are happy to report that it works much better! We also replaced the rope in our railing around the house and the dock a couple weeks ago. We're glad you enjoyed your time at our cottage!

perfect get family get away

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and location . Enjoyed morning coffee watching the sun rise and the blue heron make his daily visit. Lots of wineries and craft breweries in close proximity . Did have little to no wifi service but that really turned out to be a reminder that we were on vacation. So much else to do. Can't beat the view from the master bedroom!!!

A Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

We chanced upon the Seneca Solitude listing on the Internet last February. So glad we booked it. What a find! The owners couldn't be more accommodating. The place was immaculate, the location ideal for our family of my wife and myself, adult daughter and adult son and his wife and their children, 3 years old and 7 months. My wife and I took the smaller bedroom and my son and daughter-in-law had the master room to accommodate the baby's crib (spectacular views and easy access to porch). Our adult daughter took the Murphy bed with amazing views of the lake. The 3 year old was thrilled with her "secret" bedroom with the bunk beds, just a few steps from her parents room. Kayaking on the lake, fishing from the dock, a perfect place for a wonderfully relaxing family vacation with all the benefits of the Finger Lakes region.

Perfect Weekend to Every Detail

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8 who came in from all over the country to celebrate our friend's bachelorette with a local wine tour. Our own regret was that our weekend stay was far too short! From the moment we walked in, we were blown away by the house--absolutely beautiful, clean, modern yet cozy and rustic. Every possible detail was given attention: from the gorgeous kitchen amenities to the delicate lights on the deck to the comfy couches in the living room and of course the gorgeous view. We enjoyed early morning kayaks and had an amazing time on our wine tour. We were anxious to just enjoy the house--we quickly decided to make a trip to Wegmans and stock up on food to cook at home so that we could enjoy it more. Cannot say enough how great our stay was. Thank you!

Beautiful, cozy home with a gorgeous view of lake!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for the 2013 Deck the Halls weekend and found this home to be very relaxing and private. There is a beautiful view of the lake and we enjoyed sitting in the front room and listening to the waves hit the shore. All amenities we could need were provided. The owners were great to work with and showed genuine interest in our experience at their home. The home is very true to the pictures and amenities presented and then some! We enjoyed our weekend at Seneca Solitude!

Exceptional location

  • 5 of 5

The house is down a secluded road off the main wine routes. It is spacious and friendly with views of the lake from nearly every part of the interior. The kitchen and great room are wrapped in the floor to ceiling windows seen in the pictures; but the pictures alone do not evoke the great settling one melts into while watching the sun track along the lapping waters of Seneca lake. It puts a hush to your nerves and rattling thoughts. And if the view and cozy building doesn't calm then you can get well drunk within a few minutes of the front door!

The proprietors were extremely friendly and considerate and their visitor packets and ephemera is comprehensive and manageable.

Recommended highly.
