About the property

4 king bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 half bath, loft with 2 bunkbeds, sleeps 12

Nestled on a secluded drive in the heart of the Seneca Lake wine trail is our lake home we call Herbst's Hideaway. Relax in this air conditioned 2300 sq ft home which is literally 10 ft from incredible level lakeshore. The panoramic view is breathtaking. We also have a 100 ft dock leading to a large platform that will allow you to soak up the sun, swim and relax to your heart's content or listen to music from the Russound Multiroom Entertainment System (Sirius Satellite Radio, an IPod dock, Media Server which includes Internet Radio - also in main house and every bedroom) . Use the paddleboat or 2 tandem kayaks to row to the swim raft. Enjoy the four private king size bedrooms (two with bathrooms) and keep the kids together on the 2 sets of bunkbeds.

Gorgeous property on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying at Herbst Hideaway! Matt was so friendly and responded quickly when we had questions about the property. There is a built in sound system with XM radio, AC, and beautiful wood cabinetry. The house is equipped with almost everything you could ever need, just dont forget to pack shampoo and conditioner. We enjoyed use of the balcony, dock, kayaks, fire pit and surrounding wineries. We also had a private yoga instructor (Lisa from Yoga at Geneva St.) provide yoga instructions on the dock! Overall it was a perfect weekend.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my parents 50th anniversary over Memorial Day weekend 2017. We had such a great time! This home was directly on the lake, close to wineries and had a paddle boat and kayaks for us to use. The photos do not do it justice. The views were amazing! The owner, Matt was so nice. Thank you for sharing your home with us, we would definitely stay again!

What a great place to vacation. Owners were awesome. The house is fully stocked with all the towels, dishes, pans, silverware you'll need. We rarely left the property. Diving dock, dock, grill, fire pit, deck, all you could want! We had a 1 year old with us and it was perfect for her! Highly recommend!

Cruise ship house

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this property for the weekend. It was like going on a cruise ship. when you sit on the balcony all you see is water and feel like you are cruising. The house is very clean and better than any 5 star hotel, it was equipped with plenty of linens. The kitchen is gourmet and has every pot and pan, dishes, bowls, etc that you could want. We made a turkey dinner and sat at the table that seats 12 people and it was so relaxing. We traveled with 8 adults two 2 year olds and a 6mo old baby. The owner was very prompt getting back to us for any questions that we had. The house was very kid friendly with safety glass for the deck railing and the lower deck a gate you could close to the lake. We enjoyed the fire pit and made yummy some mores We wish we could have stayed longer and hope to rent next year for the weekend again. Thanks Matt and Julia for building such a lovely home
