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- my own paradise. 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)! There is a working refrigerator in the boat house , so you don't have to leave the beach to enjoy a cold beer or some crisp white wine in the sun!

Beautiful, peaceful and cozy!
Incredible lake views, privacy and peace and quiet. Campfires, wineries and relaxation. Clean, comfortable and everything you need is there. Can’t recommend the Green Duck enough!
Delightful guests! They had a foot of snow on the ground and still loved it :) makes me happy. Don’t hesitate to book these folks. :)
Had a great stay at the Green Duck. Very comfortable and cozy. Clean and neat. Other then a bar of soap in the shower, everything we needed was there. We will be back in the future. Great views from the sun room and the deck!
Great guests! Come again please!
Perfect place to recharge
From the moment we booked our quick trip we knew we were in good hands. Within hours of booking we received notes and tips from the owner on where to eat and where we could enjoy our time spent in the Finger Lakes.
The cabin was exactly as pictured and described. Clean and well stocked. We could not have asked for a better place to stay, or a better host. We will definitely be back!
Loved having these folks. Great communication and really kind to the cabin ! Don’t hesitate to book them !
The Green Duck is a serene and restful setting for a getaway.
This quaint lakeside house is perfect for a quiet and refreshing vacation. We appreciated the beautiful view of the lake and the proximity to the gently sloping hills laden with grapevines. Geneva and Watkins Glen are both a quick drive and offer many interesting spots to explore.
Jonathan’s gracious hospitality and attention to the details of our stay were exceptional. He makes great recommendations of things to do that are close by. Of course, in the warmer season, he has everything you need right there to enjoy the lake activities you’d expect.
Perfection! We had a great communication and they really took good care of the place. I hope to have them return ASAP!
A delightful fall getaway!!
Our stay at the Green Duck was amazing. The sunrises are breathtaking, and the fire pit was perfect for admiring the evening stars! The sound of the water with the windows open was so relaxing and the weather was dreamy! The bed was super comfortable and the other amenities were all first class. We had everything we could’ve possibly needed and more. We felt like we were guests in a friend’s home, and Jonathan was wonderful to communicate with and answered any questions immediately. Thank you for sharing such a special place with us!!
Sings* WE ARE FAM-IL-Y ! (Or at least that’s the feeling!) these guests were perfect. Left the house looking great. Awesome communicators. I’m a lucky man to have people like these folks stay. Don’t hesitate to book them ! :)
Wonderful stay at the Green Duck!
My husband and I recently stayed a week at the Green Duck. It’s a cozy little cabin in a great location. We enjoyed watching the sunrise from the deck or dock every morning and falling asleep to the sound of the water. It’s located very close to some of our favorite Finger Lake wineries and is a short drive to Geneva that has some great farm to table restaurants. It’s also very close to some beautiful hiking spots! Jonathan was easy to work with and very responsive to our questions. I would highly recommend it for a romantic getaway!
Delightful renters! I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to have them back ! Thanks for being awesome!
