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.

Beautiful, clean, and truly fully equipped!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay exceeded our expectations! 4 couples stayed in this beautiful spacious lakefront home for 2 nights. We had everything we could possibly need to make our stay comfortable and relaxing!! I have been coming to the Finger Lakes for years and rate this property as one of the best, if not THE BEST! Matt and Julia were also wonderful to work with. We will be back :)

Fantastic family retreat

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely beautiful and had everything you'd need to make it one of the most relaxing vacations our family has ever enjoyed. The lake views, especially the sunrises, were spectacular. The location was nestled in the midst of many wineries, which were enjoyed by everyone. We highly recommend this home for vacationing on Seneca Lakes. We haven't stopped talking about it since we've been home. Thank you again, Herbst's Hideaway!!!

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.
