About Dave Panzera

We have purchased this cottage and have remodeled it to our expectations and have had many great weekend getaways with our 4 children. Taking time to enjoy the local wineries that are within minutes of the area is such a fantastic way to relax and enjoy our time together. Being that this cottage originally was intended for owner occupancy, every detail, furnishings and bedding are of most quality and comfort.

Dave Panzera purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Dave Panzera chose Geneva

This cottage has been completely remodeled inside. The open floor plan allows for views of the lake from the kitchen and an adjacent living room. New stairs to the lakefront beach area for fantastic sunsets and plenty of beach frontage for enjoying the waters edge, kayaking or swimming.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage has a very large lot (about an acre) ample parking for easy access. Unlike many cottages on Seneca Lake, You will find that although it is very secluded on a private drive, You will find yourself very close to many local attractions, shopping centers and Vineyards. The location is perfect as Belhurst Castle and Geneva on the Lake are directly across from the property. The North End of the Lake is where you want to be.

Fully furnished, great location, very clean

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed our stay at the Bella Vita. We so enjoyed the sunsets in the evenings. Every thing we needed was there and the home was very clean and tidy. The resident rabbit in the back yard enjoyed our carrots. The location was perfect for evening dining in Geneva and for leaf peeping trips around the lakes and wine tasting. We discovered the great wines of the Finger Lakes Region! Thanks, Dave

Wonderful, peaceful setting on Seneca Lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Bella Vita celebrating our 32nd Anniversary. The house is as pictured, very clean, quiet street, comfy bed, nice linens and lovely lake views, sunsets were amazing. We luckily had perfect weather for early October. The house is well appointed and had all the starter items you need. The area of Seneca lake and Geneva are beautiful, large open farm and countryside and so many wonderful wineries and breweries. The state parks also a must to visit. Bella Vita was a perfect location to explore the Finger Lakes for a week. I already miss the view. Dave was quick to respond via email. Wouldn't hesitate to return again and hope we will soon. One of our best and most relaxing vacations. Many thanks.

Clean and comfortable

We loved this house! It's clean and has all of the amenities of home. The sunsets are amazing - the view never gets old. We went out on the peddle boat every morning and it was so peaceful!

Lakefront Family Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

4 generations of family together in a beautiful lakefront home in the finger lakes. Bella Vita provided a wonderful location for our family to gather and celebrate. Evenings on the lake were beautiful and we were able to enjoy the lake, beautiful sunsets and smores by the fire in the evening.

The owners were so personable and helped us every step of the way. They made our vacation easy! The home is newly renovated and very well equipped. It is just a short drive into town and we enjoyed the ability to head back to our quiet retreat in the evening.

We would absolutely recommend!

Clean, modern and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this home on the lake. Views are amazing and the house is very well maintained. If you want to cook in, there is plenty of kitchen space and all the tools you'd need. Bed in the main bedroom is comfortable (always an important point for me). Location is good, however there aren't many restaurants on this side of the lake. Owner is very responsive if you need anything. We hope to be back!

excellent cottage right on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed at numerous cottages in the Finger Lakes, and this is one of my favorites. Very clean, comfortable, and updated. Level yard which is very nice, and beautiful views of the lake. Would absolutely stay again!
