Seneca Lake Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 1.5 bath, 6 bed lakeside cottage, steps away from the water

Quaint 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath, fully furnished two-level cottage, newly remodeled--steps away from Seneca lake and 76 feet of rock shoreline beach lake frontage. Spend your days on the nearby wine trails, come home to a quick swim and a gorgeous Seneca Lake sunset, skip some rocks, and enjoy the firepit on the waterfront brick patio.

When you finally retire for the night, there's plenty of room for resting up for your next day of relaxation with 6 available beds. There is a King bed with room for a crib in the Master, two twin beds in the other bedroom, a pull-out queen in the living room, and two daybeds on the sun porch. Enjoy the gas grill, hardwoods downstairs, new carpeting upstairs, with all new appliances, including a dishwasher, washer and dryer.

A 15 minute ride to Geneva, 30 minutes to Ithaca, 5 minutes to Ovid, and 5 minutes to the nearest winery, Zugibe. Also located only a five minute drive to Sampson State Park and Marina, where you can launch your boat, picnic or fish, or you can directly access the myriad of hiking/walking/bike paths right from the cottage, and access the basketball and tennis courts in the Park. Additionally, there is a boat launch and playground just a few doors down which is exclusively accessible to the Lake Shore Landing community. In the winter, its a snowshoeing and cross country skiing paradise. Be sure to check out the Seneca Lake White Deer in the fenced in old Army depot nearby on Route 96A.

Cute, Cozy and Serene

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation in the Finger Lakes Region, and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay! The cottage was comfortable and roomier than we had imagined since it only has 2 bedrooms. Plenty of room for 6 adults and we didn't need the fold out bed in the living room. The futons in the sun room were perfect for my 2 adult sons. We were there during 90 degree temperatures and never needed the air conditioning in the master bedroom because of the cool breeze coming off the lake. We fell asleep and woke up every morning to the sound of the waves on the shore outside of our bedroom windows. The sunset views were unbelievable--every evening better than the night before. Definitely a great place to stay!

Beautiful Homeymoon Getaway!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed a quick getaway right after our wedding! We were looking for a quiet and relaxing vacation after all of the wedding preparations! The house was perfect!! The neighborhood was so quiet and peaceful! We had breakfast every morning right by the water! And watched the beautiful sunsets every night while enjoying a glass of wine! The only negative was that there was only basic cable TV...not that this was a big deal we just would've liked enjoying some TV in the evenings once it was dark! But no big deal there is a redbox close and we just picked up a movie!!! Overall we loved our trip and would definitely stay again!!!!

Great time

  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable time and the cottage was very nice. We liked the quiet community and you couldn't beat the view from the back yard! There were five of us and the sleeping situation was a little tough at first. It was pretty hot and there was only one air-conditioner in the upstairs bedroom. It cut off the air to the rest of the upstairs if anyone wanted privacy. The futons weren't too comfortable, though since it only happened to be five of us we configured a set-up that worked for everyone. We did truly enjoy our stay there, appreciated the effort in making the house a welcoming place to stay, and found the owners to be very nice. There were plenty of things to do and it was a very enjoyable vacation. I would recommend the cottage to others.

Love the lake!

  • 5 of 5

We were hoping for a quiet, relaxing vacation and that's exactly what we got! The cottage is lovely...well cared for, comfortable and spotless. We particularly enjoyed the enclosed front porch on those rainy days. It's a quiet, pleasant neighborhood and the wineries are just down the road.
