Seneca Lake right outside your door

  • 5 of 5

We decided to have a girls weekend to go wine tasting and stayed at this 4 bedroom house. The house was right on the water with the use of a kayak and paddleboat provided. The house was clean and neat, with Ken, the owner supplying the bedding and towels if needed. Ken, was friendly and easy to work with. We had such a good time we are going to make it an annual event staying there.

Peaceful Lakefront Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Kenneth's house on Seneca. We spent our days paddling on the water, relaxing on the deck with a book and a glass of wine, and eating family meals at the picnic table. The location is great--very quiet and peaceful. House was clean and comfortable and we were even greeted with a fruit basket and bottle of Finger Lakes wine. Highly recommend!

Loved the docks and the cottage! Very relaxing and a lot of fun!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was quaint and comfortable. Wish there was another bathroom though. One is just not enough with a place with four bedrooms.

Owner's Response: All of our guests are aware that our cottage has only one bathroom when they book -- we make this very clear, and it is one of the reasons that we can offer a four bedroom home with easy access, and right on the water, at such an affordable price. Also, despite this tenants comment, we have rented this cottage for years, and this is the first time any one has said that one bathroom wasn't enough.

Fantastic beautiful place with a view

  • 5 of 5

The property was very nicely decorated and well kept. The view was amazing. We are very happy to have found such an amazing place to spend Memorial Day Weekend. Will go later in the summer next time as the water was a bit chilly and weekend was overcast and partially rainy.

Loved the setting. easy to get too. and right in heart of the wineries. very good.

  • 4 of 5

Overall excellent weekend house was very nice. We enjoyed the lake and the sunrise was awesome. Very comfortable setting and the way the house is laid out was very inviting to spend time together. A couple of things to consider is the kitchen could use some upgrades. dishwasher for one, some new counter tops. also the water situation could be better. very noisy.

Thank you Ken for a great weekend. will consider your house in the future, Neil

Owner's Response: Being in the country, we don’t have city water, so our cottage is on well water, and we do have to have a pump – though we’ve never had a complaint about it being noisy. I wish the tenants had spoken to me while they were here. Also, the rental website lists our amenities, and the renters knew before they rented that we don’t have a dishwasher – again, primarily because of well water. And certainly, any kitchen can use upgrades, but our kitchen is clean, well supplied, and very functional.

the house is right on the lake

The sleepy lake town of Dresden, is located on Rt. 14, 15 minutes south of Geneva, 9 minutes east of Penn Yan, and 25 minutes north of Watkins Glenn. An ideal location for wine tours, lake activities, Amish/Mennonite, car racing fans.

From interstate 90, take exit 42 (Geneva). Turn right onto Rte. 14. Follow 14 South through Geneva, and 15 minutes south to the flashing light in Dresden. Turn left, go to stop sign. Turn left onto Charles street. Stay on Charles about 1/2 mile until it turns into Arrowhead Beach. House is about 1/4 mile on right.
