Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6

***** SPECIAL: 20% OFF FOR LAST AVAILABLE NIGHTS OF SUMMER *****

Our home is right in the heart of wine country and overlooks the lake from the east side, so the views are amazing and the sunsets are often filled with spectacular colors. Set among summer cottages and homes in a rustic/country-style neighborhood, our property has 70 feet of spacious lake frontage and a 10 foot wide dock. Depending on the weather and day of the week, the atmosphere on this uncongested lake ranges from calm and peaceful to joyful and fun.

Our home is fully furnished and features an Arts & Crafts-style living room. The master bedroom, living room, and especially the dining room (with its eight windows) all have clear, broad views of the lake/sunsets. The community areas are large too (living room: 17' x 22', kitchen and dining room: 22' x 22'). Up to six people can sleep comfortably in the three bedrooms with two queen and two twin beds. The kitchen is fully stocked and the house has air conditioning. There is enough parking for two or three vehicles.

Further Description:

Just outside the house is an intimate yard with a gas grill and a patio set that has cushioned seats and an umbrella. On the lakefront, there's a bonfire ring and a picnic table with an umbrella. You can borrow the owner's 2 kayaks, peddle boat, and row boat, as well as use the camp chairs that are kept in the boat shed. There's something for everyone, including swimming, boating, kayaking, long walks along a dirt road through vineyards, fishing, and romantic evenings watching the sunset and drinking local wine.

- full kitchen with microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, cookware, and eating utensils

- satellite TV and DVD player in living room

- access to the lake frontage from the yard is by way of a sturdy staircase or by a short road that goes around the neighborhood (about 1/4 mile to our frontage). The staircase has about 75 steps. The run for the steps is 11 inches, which is nice, and there are three decks with benches, in case anyone needs to rest or wants to see the view. It's also very handy to be able to drive down if you're carrying coolers, towels, etc., or are taking some small kids down all at once. The road is for limited use, especially on crowded weekends, but it is there when needed.

It's also surrounded by the Finger Lakes National Forest, with many nice hiking trails. You-pick fruit orchards and honor-system fruit and vegetable stands are available frequently during the summer and fall. Skyland Farm, a fine-craft gallery with items from over 300 artists and a feeding farm, is a must-see. The cuisine in the area is delicious with dining atmospheres ranging from casual to elegant.

Great property - great area

  • 5 of 5

Cozy, clean with all the modern conveniences of home, including a wireless Internet connection. The views of the lake, especially the sunset are incredible. The waterfront area with dock is a short walk away with swimming, fishing, and boating (kayak and canoe provided) and just general relaxing by the water available. The area itself has lots of wineries, a great micro-brewery at Wagners and excellent restaurants within easy driving distance. All-in-all a wonderful vacation spot. Highly recommended!

Lake House on Seneca Lake

  • 5 of 5

Great location on Seneca Lake - 3 bedroom home within minutes of several wineries and breweries. The stairs to the lake are exactly as described - pre plan what you'll need by the lake and you'll be fine . You can also drive to the lake / reserved dock area but no where to really park . We did drive down once to drop off our firewood . Everything was great and the house really does come well equiped with everything you'll need for your stay . Nice that our dogs were also welcome - they loved swimming in the lake. Great time !

Great as always!

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure to stay here again. Mary was very accommodating of our needs and I'm happy to have booked with her for a third time. I hope we are able to stay again sometime next year, it's a great cottage in a beautiful and remote location.

Scenic cabin, awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

This cute, clean Arts and Crafts themed cabin was such a welcome respite from our long trip (we drove!!) from Texas to visit the Finger Lakes region. It just happens to be perfectly located along 414 with wineries to the right and wineries to the left. If you are not careful, you end in a winery looking for the street! It is a really cool property.

The access street runs through a grape farm and is dead end, with no through traffic, so it was very quiet. The cabin sits directly above the lake, so the view is magnificent. We sat both evenings and watched the sunset across the water.

The beds were comfortable, there was plenty of room to spread out (four in our party), the kitchen was well equipped, and the BBQ worked just fine. The paddle boat was in working order and there was a swim platform some feet out in the water. We might have used the kayaks but were so excited to see the lake, did not stop long enough to look up the combo to the storage hut...note to future guests: figure this combo out before you head down to the boats! You don't want to keep going up and down those stairs. (The cabin info says you can drive down there, but we didn't try it.)

As far as we could tell, the closest grocery was Watkins Glen, maybe 10 miles, so get your essentials- including water and TP- before you arrive.

The roadside fruit and vegetable stands were fun- we can recommend the cherry jelly/jam- Wow it was good. Wish we had bought more. Also, the Watkins Glen State Park was historical and visually awesome, you don't want to miss it.

The Callahans were very nice. We appreciated the 1/2 cleaning fee that was charged, not the astronomical cleaning fee some of them advertise. They also were accommodating- we traveled with a small dog, and we very much appreciated it.

We would go back if it wasn't so darn far from Texas! We certainly recommend it :)

Great location and space

  • 4 of 5

This is our second time reserving the house for a family wedding! We love seeing the sunset right over the lake. Roomy space for 5 people. This cottage has a well stocked kitchen. One bathroom is a bit challenging with 5 people preparing for a wedding! We would rent again as we enjoy the warmth and comfort of the house.
