About jonathan pierce
I grew up in the finger lakes district and spent many memorable summers on Seneca Lake at my Grandfather's cabin. I moved away for work to Manhattan and after years of hard work, I was able to purchase my own cabin on the same lake as my grandfather - my own dream come true.. Sadly, my work requires me to travel almost constantly, so I am excited to share this slice of heaven with you!
jonathan pierce purchased this House in 2012
Why jonathan pierce chose Penn Yan
I wanted to have a home on Seneca Lake, simply for nostalgic reasons. I missed those perfect quiet summers I spent up here as a kid - and when I am here - I do feel like a kid again. You have to stay here to really grasp what I'm saying! Also, living in Manhattan has really made me crave serenity. Here, you are literally surrounded by nature.
What makes this House unique
Incredible lake views, private 165 ft. beach, private road to house (shared with only two neighbors), the house is on the Finger Lakes Wine Trail. The backyard is flush with Fox Run's Riesling grape vines (pictured)!

I greatly enjoyed my stay at the Green Duck.
The Green Duck was everything I hoped for! My husband and I had a peaceful and relaxing weekend! We enjoyed the beautiful location and view of the lake. I look forward to booking in the near future. Ports was great!
These folks capped off the rental season and they were a sheer delight to work with. Easy, communicative, and took good care of the cabin. Hope they return !
The Green Duck is absolutely charming! We had such a perfect mini-vacation. The home is right off the main path of tons of wineries! We ventured to Geneva for great food and to the other side of the lake for more wineries and views. There was so much to do and see! At the end of the day, the Green Duck was perfect to come back to and listen to the water while relaxing.
Jonathon was a delight to communicate with and he takes pride in his home. It was immaculate, charming and cozy! We will definitely be back again! Thank you!!
I really had a great time hosting these folks. They are sweet and considerate and fun! I hope y’all come back!
Great spot on the lake and near wineries
We had a nice long weekend at this property! Everything is just like the pictures. The owner provided thorough information and recommendations. He also responded quickly and checked in with us prior to the trip. It is SO peaceful in this area. We didn’t get to try the kayaks or the fire pit because of the weather. Hopefully next time! And for those curious- we didn’t hear any trains. My husband was a bit disappointed... :-)
I loved having these guests. Perfect communication and easy as a breeze. They took great care of the place and I’d love to have them back!
Comfortable, Cozy Green Duck
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this delightful lakeside cottage. Very clean, very comfortable. The location is perfect - right on the lake, close to several wineries and not far from the city of Geneva. No problems with check-in and quick responses from property manager. Would definitely visit again. Thank you, Jonathan!
I really enjoyed working with these two to make sure they had a wonderful time. I could not ask for sweeter guests. Thank you and please come back!
This was such an awesome and unique location. Great view of the lake, cute cottage and very close to the wine trail. We were so thankful for the bikes, because our truck broke down and we had no transportation! Jonathan was very responsive throughout the entire process. I would definitely stay there again!!!!!!
The Green Duck Boxcar
Property is great, served us well. And in spite of less than ideal weather it provided a great place to go out from for things to do, dinners to enjoy, etc. The views of lake and grapes on the vine were terrific. Glad we went.
