Romulus House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedroom, 3 bathroom, Sleeps 10, Romulus Lake Home Rental

Plan your Finger Lakes Wine Country getaway or vacation in this beautiful year round lake home on the east shore of Seneca Lake in Lakeshore Landing. Relax and enjoy a newly renovated walk-out lakefront home with year round sunsets.

Covered front porch has two rocking chairs and outside table with 4 chairs to enjoy a gorgeous garden in the front of the house. At the back there's an expansive lakeside deck to enjoy the sunsets with a 7 person hot tub (open May through October). Located on a quiet dead-end road with Sampson State Park just a 5 minute walk away leading to over 20 walking trails. New 100 foot dock out over the lake ( bring your fishing gear).

The main entrance has access to the first floor bathroom and leads into a new modern kitchen with breakfast nook. The modern kitchen is well equipped with hardwood floors throughout the main floor and opens through french doors to the lakeside deck.

The living room has comfortable leather furniture that includes a queen pullout sofa. The large dining room has a table with six chairs on one side of the area and a wood burning fireplace sitting area on the other side of the room - all in an open floor plan with an amazing view of the lake.

The first floor has two bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen bed and a twin bed with an attached bathroom and large tiled shower. The second bedroom is a smaller bedroom with a queen bed. The third bedroom has a queen bed with a twin above - this bedroom has an attached bathroom and separate entrance.

The second floor has two bedrooms each with a bay window that overlooks the lake - one has a queen bed and the other has two full size beds. There's a large full bathroom with tub on the second floor.

The heated and finished garage is used as a game room with a ping pong table, foosball table, futon couch and comfortable chairs for your enjoyment. There is also a laundry area in the corner.

The house offers luxury and relaxation in the heart of the Finger Lakes where you can enjoy lake living. The home offers privacy but is also conveniently situated on the Seneca Wine Trail and is a short drive from Geneva, Seneca Falls, Ithaca and Watkins Glen as well as easy access to Interstate 90 or I86/Rte 17.

The home is close to many popular lakeside wedding locations - Belhurst Castle, Ventosa Vineyard, Esperanza Mansion, Wagner Winery, Logan Ridge Estates, Suzanne's Fine Dining.

You did a fantastic job of utilizing space! Thank you for opening your home for rentals. We had a great weekend!

Couldn't be any better!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with 3 other couples for a weekend of wine tasting. This property couldn't be any better. From the location to the amenities, it was a perfect weekend. There was plenty of room for all of us and then some. We had beautiful sunsets while enjoying the nightly lakeside campfires. The pictures do not do this property justice. The owners were wonderful to deal with. I highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay right on Seneca Lake.

beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here and it's even better than before. The new kitchen flows into the dining and living area which allows everyone to be together. Expansive deck offers gorgeous views of the lake. This place has it all. Ten years of visiting the Finger Lakes and this is the nicest place we have stayed. We will continue to rent this place in the future.

Gorgeous home with fabulous views!

  • 5 of 5

Spent three days at this lovely home on Seneca Lake. Very close to many wonderful wineries and other attractions. Perfect place for our group of 6 women to get together for our yearly college reunion. Weather wasn't great while we were there, but it didn't stop us from having a great time. The views of Seneca Lake were spectacular and the house was spacious enough for us to make ourselves quite comfortable. The new kitchen was awesome. Didn't partake in the hot tub or fire pit due to the weather, but I'm sure they are great if the weather is right.

A wonderful family trip

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this beautiful home right on Seneca Lake for my father's 80th birthday. Perfect sunsets, plenty of different places to enjoy them from (end of dock, enormous porch, living room, hot tub). Incredibly well-appointed kitchen, pingpong/foosball/games/waterslide for the kids, and 2 minute bike ride from the roads and trails of Sampson State Park. Numerous wineries/breweries/cider mills to keep you occupied as well. We would go again in a heartbeat!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

A very beautiful home right on the lake. Pretty sunsets sitting on the deck in the hot tub, and on the dock. So much in this house even if the weather isn't sunny and warm!. The top of the line kitchen is stocked with 2 to 3 sets of everything. Even plenty of bakeware. It's just the perfect getaway.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

8 of us stayed here for 3 nights. This home is gorgeous as well as the outside property. The nicest place our group has ever stayed. We have absolutely no negative comments. Unfortunately due to the rate increase we won't be returning.
