4BR 3.5BA Home w/Panoramic Lake Views on Famed Seneca Lake Wine Trail
Our home, 'Promise Kept' features a professionally manicured, level, half acre lot that is perfect for games of volleyball, kickball, frizbee, etc.
All of the homes on our street, Perry Point Road, have half acre lots (or larger) - which means that your group will have plenty of room to roam.
Our kids (and their cousins) have grown up spending summers at the lake swimming, exploring the shoreline for shells & arrowheads, snorkeling (yes, snorkeling - the water is crystal clear) fishing and water skiing.
Our home offers a natural shale stone beach stretching over 115' with gradual water depth. The beach is absolutely ideal for toasting marshmallows at night around a fire ring, or cooking over an open fire.
As our family has grown, we've also had many Fall and Winter gatherings at the lake to take in the foliage, enjoying the ever-expanding list of wineries along the Seneca Lake Wine Trail, and to simply relax & enjoy our amazing view from the great room with our wood burning fireplace. There is nothing like hunkering down with family and friends next to a roaring fire with a hot cup of coffee and taking in the lake views through the wall of windows.
Also, our home is located on a state maintained road, so there is no issue with snow during the Winter season. Winter has actually become one of our favorite times to go to the lake - so peaceful!
We have all the modern amenities one could ask for: central heat and (brand new) central AC, a modern cherry kitchen, newer appliances, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths and 1 Half Bath & and a full sized washer/dryer. The entire main level has hardwood flooring and features a vaulted great room with floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors that lead out to our wraparound deck. Our great room is THE perfect gathering room for your group & offers a panoramic, MILLION DOLLAR VIEW of one of the widest parts of Seneca Lake.
We've spent many relaxing evenings on the deck with friends and family taking in the amazing views and enjoying a bottle of fine wine from one of the many local wineries - and invite you to do the same!
Speaking of wine, this is ***THE PERFECT*** home base for your wine tasting excursion - as we are located on the famed Seneca Lake Wine Trail in the exact middle of Seneca Lake on the western shore. We are located just south of Dresden Village - approximately 1.5 miles to the south of Anthony Road Winery, Seneca Shore Wine Cellars & Serenity Vineyards. We are also about 1 mile to the north of Climbing Bines Hop Farm & Craft Brewery. As the wine trail has grown over the years, it has truly become a year-'round attraction.
Another great feature about our location is that we're a mere 5 minutes from PennYan for trips to the grocery store, restaurants, bars and all of the quaint little shops that line Main Street.
Now accepting 2 night rentals for the Winter and Spring of 2018.

Why Todd Cerino chose Penn Yan
The Finger Lakes are one of the last 'undiscovered' great vacation destinations that I know of. The wineries and the outdoor activities available are without comparison on the east coast and offer a very unique combination of things to do. We chose to purchase this particular home mainly because of the size and configuration of the lot and the beach (1/2 acre, level yard with easy access to the beach and a great area for swimming), the views and the layout of the house - which is VERY open due to the great room and the wall of windows facing the water. You really feel like the lake is a part of the house because of how the home is sited and because of the wall of windows and the wraparound deck. We simply did not see any other home that was comparable.

Conveniently located to visit the many wineries on the west side of Seneca Lake. Would have loved to see a sunrise or sunset on the lake, but the weather didn’t cooperate.
An Amazing Getaway with a Stunning View
We spent an extended Easter weekend at this beautiful property with our family. I can't say enough good things about it.
First, Todd - the owner, is exceptionally helpful. When I had questions about our arrival (and the information somehow didn't come through in its entirety via our messages) he took the time to call me and go over the information over the phone. That was such a huge plus in my book!
Once we arrived we knew we had picked the perfect location. My 13 year old son, who is an avid fisherman, immediately went to the dock & came back incredibly excited. He spent 90% of his time on that dock during our stay and he had some great catches.
That wall of windows in the Great Room....what can I say? It's as stunning as it appears in the preview pictures...even more so if possible. Since we were up over Easter & it was still pretty chilly outside we didn't get to take advantage of sitting on the deck very much. But, my sister in law and I did pop out there one morning with our coffee and our blankets to watch the sun rise over the water.
The kitchen is well stocked with whatever kitchenware you may need. We prepared most of our own meals during our stay...including Easter dinner....and we became quite comfortable in that kitchen!
The bedrooms are cozy and comfortable. There was plenty of room for all of us (10 total). In addition to the Great Room on the main level (2 bedrooms on the same level), there is a large family room in the lower level along with 2 more bedrooms. In other words, there is lots of room to stretch out!
While we were there we ran into a small issue with the water pressure. I wasn't sure if it was normal for the house so I contacted Todd. And he responded right away. At first he sent his brother in law to check to see if it was something as simple as the filter needing changed. It ended up being a little more involved & a plumber came out the same day to remedy the situation. Even the plumber was super friendly.
This house sits on a quiet road with hardly any traffic so you could easily bring your bikes to putter around or take a nice walk. Penn Yan is about a 10 minutes drive and there are several grocery stores to choose from. There are also several wineries within just minutes of the house. It's the best mix of being in an extremely convenient location while also having privacy.
We highly recommend this property and would gladly stay here again!
This home is absolutely beautiful. Everything is well maintained, and the house is spotless. Todd is a wonderful homeowner who makes you feel welcome right from the very beginning. It is close to a lot of wineries, and close to the town of Geneva. I visited the house to do several events in the town of Geneva in February, and even though it was winter, it was absolutely gorgeous. Waking up in the morning to the view of the lake was amazing. I highly recommend this home.
Thank you for your comments about the house. It always amazes me how peaceful and quiet the winter is up at the lake. Some of our very best trips have been in the middle of winter. We make it to the lake regularly during the winter months to relax and unwind and visit our favorite wineries and breweries - which are open all year 'round. We'd love to have you back as our guests again in the very near future! Regards, Todd.
Awesome Thanksgiving location!
We have stayed in this beautiful house on Seneca Lake for the past 2 Thanksgivings. It is perfect for our elderly Moms who have difficulty with stairs. There are 2 bedrooms and bathrooms on the main level so once they are in the house, they are all set. The kitchen, living room, and dining room areas have been perfect for hosting our Thanksgiving gatherings and Thanksgiving dinner. Plenty of room downstairs with another full bathroom and half bathroom a few steps away, and the views cannot be beat!
Thank you so much for your kind words. We love the fact that you have chosen our home as your venue for Thanksgiving with your family. We've had several Thanksgivings at the house with immediate and extended family, and have many great memories at the house during the holiday season. Nothing like eating a gourmet Thanksgiving Day meal, enjoying some local wine, and being able to take in the views from the dinner table!
Fantastic house with amazing views!
This is a fantastic property with everything we were looking for and more. The view was amazing! The property is conveniently located with many fun activities nearby. The owner was easy to work with and very responsive. We had a great time and hope to return.
Thank you for the note and for posting your review. Very glad that you and your group enjoyed the house and the lake. Late summer and fall are both great times to be at the lake! Regards, Todd.
GREAT LOCATION AND VIEW
great location with an awesome view of the Lake. The open living, dining and kitchen was great for our group. The hot tub was full of leaves and not inviting. Make sure to bring extra blankets as there is not one extra if you get a little chilly. Overall great place for the money.
