This cottage is immaculately clean - sleeps 6, and includes a lakeside hot tub, a dock, and 100 ft of level lake frontage. The kitchen, bathroom modernized - cottage completely redecorated.

About Pat Hoke

I'm married with two children (a girl and a boy) and I work with a small technology company in Fairfax County VA. I'm also a partner in a family run inn that sits just 7 miles south of our cottage, overlooking Seneca Lake. I grew up in northern Virginia, outside Washington, DC, and graduated from George Mason University. My family has had a cottage on Seneca since 1930 (my grandparents), and our whole family has a great attachment to the lake. Since I was a child, it was a dream of mine to one day have a place for my own family on Seneca Lake. In 2007 we made that dream a reality, and now we would love to share this beautiful spot with you!

Pat Hoke purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Pat Hoke chose Seneca Lake

I love Seneca Lake and I wanted to have my own cottage, just as others in my family do. This area happens to be one of the most choice locations on the whole lake. It has easy access all year, an awesome view of the lake, lots of privacy, and plenty of land to add on in the future. It's also one of the most convenient locations to the wineries and to shopping.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage sits in such a unique setting, with around 100ft of private, grassy, level lake frontage. It's also very private, with only one distant neighbor. The cottage sits on the widest part of Seneca Lake and because it faces north east, you have an extremely expansive view of the lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cottage was perfect for our Thanksgiving getaway. As newcomers to the area, we had no accomodations suitable for entertaining our out-of-town guests, the parents! The cottage was cozy and quiet but clean and well appointed. The kitchen was spacious and the veiws are awesome. Thanks to Pat for getting our TV glitch sorted out right away; I couldn't imagine a Thanksgiving without football!

Anyone looking for a getaway anytime of the year should look into that cottage. Cheers!

Beautiful home and hot tub!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with several friends at this home. It was very nicely decorated and very clean. The bedrooms are small but the beds are comfortable and it's convinient that there were towels and linens availible there. There was, however, only 1 roll of toilet paper for 6 women for a whole weekend- obviously we had to get more but there aren't many stores close- by or open at that time of year. The hot tub was spacious and very relaxing. I would stay there again and highly reccommend this home and the renters. The view of Lake Seneca alone was worth the trip! It made our wine-tasting girls-weekend come together.

Very quiet and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

The location is easy to get to, and quiet. The home is small, and the bedrooms are not much larger than the beds, which made storing luggage and getting around challenging. Overall, though, it was quite adequate for a relaxing time away.

Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very nice small, cozy cottage. Listing description was accurate. Great view of the lake, clean and well-maintained. Located in between Geneva and Watkins Glen. Had breakfast at the Dairymen's restaurant that is about 5 minutes away, very good and reasonably priced. Also ate at Ridley's Roadhouse BBQ that is towards Geneva. Very good pulled pork and relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. A little further than from the wineries than we would prefer. Would recommend to others, but unsure if would stay again since we like the wineries on the other side of the lake more. Overall, great stay and experience!

Very relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for a weekend getaway and it was amazing! Pat and Sarah were great to deal with while booking, and before and after the stay as well. The cottage was clean and decorated nicely. We hope we left it as clean as it was when we got there! The neighbourhood was quiet, and the views from the cottage were great despite the facility next door which was barely noticed. The history of the area was very interesting, and the close access to wineries and the town was convenient. We would stay there again in a heartbeat and want to go back already! Would definitely recommend this cottage. Great weekend away and would be great for to go away with friends or a family as well. - Lindsy and Curtis

We had a wonderful time during our stay! Beautiful view of the lake! Private setting! Very relaxing! Pat went out of his way to make sure our stay was top notch. Our daughter left a few of her belongings behind and he even mailed them back to us with out us asking. Would come back again for sure!

Car: necessary

Enjoy all that the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York has to offer. You are only minutes from the regions premier wineries and in the heart of the Finger Lakes wine trail. Enjoy local geologic wonders such as Watkins Glen or Glenora falls, or explore the many nearby towns such as Penn Yan, Geneva, Seneca Falls, Hammonds Port or Canandaigua. If you enjoy hiking or mountain biking, the cottage is walking distance from the scenic Keuka Lake outlet trail that connects Keuka Lake with Senca Lake, and follows the historic canal that once served these two lakes. Feel like exploring other lakes besides Seneca? Within one day you can visit almost all of the region's lakes from this location.
