Best of our Finger Lakes homes

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth trip to the Finger Lakes and the best suited house we rented. We had everything we needed and the view is absolutely spectacular! Close to many wineries and great restaurants. Plan to return!!!

Beautiful, clean and private.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Jim's home. Unfortunately we couldn't spend as much time on the deck, as we would liked to, due to unusually cold weather, but it was beautiful nonetheless. The view is spectacular. I would recommend this property to anyone.

Beautiful, peaceful, dramatic view of Seneca Lake

  • 5 of 5

The large kitchen features a wall of windows that look out onto the lake. The two bedrooms are big with plenty of closet space. Very comfortable and serene. The owner responded quickly to a last-minute email about staying there the next day. Saved us from staying in an ordinary hotel! Highly recommended.

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Plenty of room for my wife and I in the master bedroom, my dad in the second bedroom, and my brother inflated the aerobed in the living room. The property was nice and clean. The master bedroom has a Toto toilet with all the bells and whistles. Great views of the lake. Great location. Make sure to hit the FLX Wienery just down the road. They have an amazing wine list of hard to get wines at very reasonable prices. Makes sense as the owner/chef is a Master Sommelier. My one complaint would be that the WIFI is painfully slow. Not much nightlife in the area, so faster downloads would be a welcome addition.

Relaxing family weekend

  • 4 of 5

The house was very clean and location was great! It had everything you needed, water views and quite street, plus beautiful countryside. Two wineries are just a short walk away if thats what you are interested in, we spent most of the time just sitting on the deck enjoying the view. Swimming was nice, only thing it didn't have was a dock which would have been great to swim off of. Thanks for a great weekend.
