About Pat Hoke

My family has been on Seneca Lake since 1930 and this is the first home I have owned. We have a large family and this is the 6th cottage that we own. I chose this cottage because my siblings and I have a very strong connection to the lake and the area (we all live out of state) and it is our favorite place to come and relax. We all became familiar with the water as babies, and it continues to draw us back. Some of my best memories (I'm 30 and single) have been at the lake. I've made quite an effort to modernize and update my cottage recently, so that I and my guests will thoroughly enjoy staying here. I love the location and the yard. It's very bright and peaceful, with expansive views of the lake and surrounding natural setting. I feel very much at home there and I hope you will too.

Pat Hoke purchased this cottage in 2014

What makes this cottage unique

I chose this cottage because it reminded me of my grandfather's cottage when I was growing up, and because it was very well maintained. I especially like the way it feels. Cheerful and homey.

Beautiful setting on Lake Seneca with some areas for improvement

  • 4 of 5

Overall, great cottage right on Lake Seneca. Beds comfortable, kitchen fully equipped, Canle TV and Wifi available. Nice backyard (actually front yard towards the lake) with fire pit and Weber charcoal grill. But why all carpet in the cottage, including the bathroom? Never seen this before. Also, some areas in the garden quite filthy, also the dock needs refurbishment and a ladder to access the lake. Boat looks quite dirty and dysfunctional, a kayak would be nice. Overall, despite these little issues and the hefty price tag, this cottage can be recommended for up to 4 people.

Spectacular Sunrise!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a planned a romantic weekend along with our GSP (German Short-haired Pointer) down off Seneca Lake and had originally planned on a Jacuzzi Suite at Savannah House but we booked our for the weekend. That being said Pat and Brenda offered us an opportunity at the cottage - I gotta say we're so glad we took him up on the offer. The view was spectacular. My wife most of said the word "gorgeous" 50 times in the first hour we arrived with all of the wonderful decorations and styles throughout the cottage. It was just so inviting, peaceful, and classy all at the same time.

I can't say what the best thing about the say was but I know enjoying a cup of coffee with the peaceful quiet sounds coming off the lake and the sun rise over it was awesome.

The description was not only accurate it was probably understated the type of atmosphere we enjoyed. The cottage was very clean and well maintained. We did have an issue with the Hot Tub with which Pat arrived within moments of my call to address - we were enjoying it that night - thanks Pat.

I would gladly recommend this to my friends and family not only the cottage but the area was beautiful with lots to see and do. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Top of the Lake in Penn Yan to top it off. And we're already looking towards setting up another trip real soon!

Great cottage for relaxation and refreshing the body and spirit.

  • 4 of 5

Cottage is like the pictures. We had a wonderful time relaxing on the deck reading and enjoying the view of the lake. Sunrise was fantastic. Neighbors were friendly.

This is definitely what we call a "come back to" vacation spot.

Lakeside charm/ modern amenities- wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

Bottom line, seneca lake is a magical place. Our family has been visiting seneca lake for many years; wanna be locals :) This is our new favorite!! We felt like we walked into a Cottage living magazine. Beautifully decorated; sleeps six no problem; the layout works well, we could spread out and have privacy or come together and have fun!! Large deck with a view that is without saying breathtaking; a smaller deck off kitchen --loved my coffee out there! BBQ area with grill, new picnic table and a cozy fire pit. Large yard perfect for football or corn hole. The steps from the cottage lead you down to a quant little beach area that is wonderful and it was easy access to take a swim or simply float in the lake. Great location, fresh vegetables , seneca lake corn and world class wine - I would recommend this cottage for a family or romantic rondevu. P.S. no worries your data plan is safe there is wifi and a smart tv!!
