About the property

**Book 7 nights, get 1 of them free during September & October!**

Relax and enjoy the 2 acres of wooded land and the view of Seneca Lake during your stay in Himrod! This ranch-style home has 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, and a sunroom that’s perfect for watching local wildlife. Located between Geneva and Watkins Glen, this charming home is the ideal place for 6 guests visiting the Finger Lakes region. Spend your days on gorgeous Seneca Lake before dining at nearby eclectic restaurants!


Bedroom 1: King Bed | Bedroom 2: Full Bed | Bedroom 3: 2 Twin Beds

Wake up and read your favorite book in the sunroom. Sipping your morning coffee while the sun rises above the treeline is the best way to start off your day.

Return home from your day exploring this wonderful part of the country and kick back on the couch in the comfortable living room. You can watch your favorite DVD on the flat-screen TV, or use the wireless internet access to surf the net.

There's no need to travel far when your stomach starts to rumble! The fully equipped kitchen has all of the appliances and utensils you need to prepare your favorite meals right in the comfort of your home-away-from-home.

When the weather is pleasant, step out to the back porch and fire up the grill. The grill master in your travel group can whip up a tasty barbecue dinner while everyone else enjoys a pre-dinner cocktail.

Regardless of which bedroom you find yourself in at night, you're sure to sleep well after a day of fun and adventure on Seneca Lake! The first bedroom has a king bed; the second bedroom has a full bed; the third room has a pair of twin beds that can be pushed together to form a king.


This charming getaway is in the ideal location to see and do everything that the Finger Lakes region has to offer. During your stay, you'll be within a stone's throw from marvelous Seneca Lake. Take advantage of the free state boat launch and all of the other famous Finger Lakes that are within a short drive and all offer great opportunities for fishing, boating, and swimming!

Rent a paddle board, canoe, or kayak from Regan's and have it delivered right to your front door. Take your vessel down to the free public boat launch - a third of a mile from the property - for an unforgettable day on the water.

Sommeliers will adore this home's location. Situated near some of the best wineries in the area, there's always an opportunity to taste wine fresh from the vine. Shaw Vineyard, Miles Wine Cellars, Herman J Weimar Vineyard, Keuka Spring Vineyard, and Pleasant Valley Wine Company are all must-visit locations during your stay. If visiting in February, be sure to take in both the Seneca and the Keuka Wine Trails!

When you're not in the mood to eat in, drive 3 miles to try some of the area's best restaurants. Try a unique meal at Ports before getting some dessert at Seneca Farms Ice Cream! For a more casual dining experience, grab a bite at Classic Cafe, less than 6 miles from the property.

Those visiting on Saturdays will want to check out The Windmill Farm & Craft Market, just 7 miles away.

You'll only be a short drive from some big city action! Rochester, Syracuse, Corning, Geneva, and Ithaca are all within an hour's drive from the property. All of the cities offer theaters, museums, restaurants, and dining options to suit everyone's interests.

Just wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time in this perfect home! Four girlfriends enjoyed walks to the lake, breakfasts every morning in the well appointed kitchen, and hanging out on the screened in porch. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Beautiful weekend

  • 5 of 5

This place was well stocked for dishes etc in the kitchen. Really nice bathroom towels and the home is comfortable, beautifully decorated and inviting. I would highly recommend this place and it was perfectly located for easy access to many activities, restaurants, and fun things to do. The owners were so friendly and made sure to help us with hot spots to visit. Very nice weekend.

Great spot.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in very early spring so it was a little chilly and not much going on but the location was good, the house was well equipped and clean and the owners were responsive and very nice. If we go back in the fall, I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect home with kind and generous owners

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls' weekend and we couldn't have been happier. This is an immaculate home that is well maintained. The owners have thought of everything you might need for a fun and relaxing stay. The house is located on a private road, with wonderful neighbors. At night you can watch for shooting stars while sitting around the camp fire and during the day you can easily find wineries and restaurants and many things to do.

We are already talking about returning next year. Many thanks to Jo and Tom (the owners) for a wonderful stay. "The Camping Girls"
