Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Dreaming a View was perfect for our wine tasting weekend with our cousins. There were 12 of us staying at the house, and it has plenty of room with 6 queen size beds and a dining room table that seats 12. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, glasses, silverware, cooking and baking dishes.

We got lucky with the weather, which made our day at the wineries and breweries great. We came back and sat on the deck overlooking Seneca Lake, which is breathtaking, enjoyed appetizers and cocktails, while cooking our dinner on the grill. There is plenty of outdoor seating and tables.

Phil and Linda are very gracious host who meet you at the house and answer any questions you may have. They have clear instructions throughout the house for all of the electronics and appliances.

We have already booked our stay for next year at Dreaming a View. We would highly recommend this beautiful house, great location, and fabulous lake view to everyone.

Great location, beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this house for our 25th wedding anniversary. It's clean, bright, and well equipped. Phil and Linda greeted us upon arrival to provide a tour of the house and answer questions. It's rare to find a beautiful, lakefront home at a reasonable price.

An Amazing Week!

  • 5 of 5

This home is as wonderful as advertised! The owners were there to greet us upon our arrival, gave us a tour of their home, and were very responsive to any questions or requests we had throughout the week. The view from the balconies is stunning and the location on Seneca lake couldn't be more scenic and peaceful. We would highly recommend this property for a Finger Lakes vacation stop.

Finger Lakes Dream

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had a wonderful family vacation on Seneca Lake at Dreaming A View. The setting is amazing - wide open views of the ever-changing seascape of Seneca Lake. The house is immaculate and well-appointed with everything you might need. The kids were in the lake everyday for hours. Phil and Linda are the perfect hosts - invisible and yet ready to help if needed. The weather was perfect too and a double rainbow appeared right off the dock in front of us on our last evening!

Best vacation home ever!

  • 5 of 5

Each year my extended family gets together for a week. In the past, we have been extremely disappointed in the homes we have rented. This year, Dreaming A View was everything we needed, and so much more. The owners of the vacation home are amazing people, and have provided everything in their home that you could need during your stay. Best week ever!!!!!
