Superb on Lake Seneca

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful lake front property with absolutely everything available. Well stocked kitchen and amenities both inside and outside with the great seating, grilling and dock areas.The location could not have been nicer as we visited many local wineries, took several hikes and explored the lovely area of the Finger Lakes. We have stayed at VRBO's all over the world and this property was one of the most well appointed. The owner was great at communication and cooperation. Outstanding !!

Super clean, spacious, comfortable, and picturesque

  • 5 of 5

When we pulled into the driveway, we knew we hit a jackpot! The beautiful lake view is stunning! Off to our right sat a spacious yard with a large, cozy-looking gazebo. The hammock was calling my husband's name. When we entered the house, we were excited to see how large and comfortable everything looked. The furniture is very inviting and the layout is very practical. It made us wish our real house was all on one level. Chris made sure the house was spotless and well equipped. There was nothing we were lacking. We did have trouble adjusting the thermostat, so we texted Chris. Within a minute or two, she called to explain, and before we knew it, the temperature was perfect. All we can say is that we discovered a true home-away-from-home.

Beautiful lakefront property

  • 5 of 5

The home is very clean and comes with more then most rental homes provide. The location is great and the property has everything you would want to stay on the lakefront. Christine was very nice and answered any questions quickly . I would recommend this rental to anybody and would re-book again.

An unpleasant smoky odor from fireplace, which was not even used.

  • 1 of 5

The house is very well stocked with supplies. I did not like having to wash bedding and towels before leaving. I paid a cleaning fee and that should include the above.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you were unhappy. Guests are not required to wash the linens. It is my fault the rental agreement was an old version that stated to wash linens. I didn't realize it was still there. I have removed it going forward. The fireplace is large and open. I will try to address the firewood small as best as possible. I do appreciate feedback and strive to correct any and all issues.

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house and property are amazing!!! I overpacked, thinking some things would not be provided, but the house was extremely well stocked - kitchen had all pots, pans, dishes, and utensils, also many spices. I brought extra TP, paper towels, soaps, and wipes and left extra. Weather wasn't great, but wineries and breweries are open regardless. Got in a schooner trip on the one gorgeous day. We'll be back; the price was right too.
