Summerwind provided the comforts of home with the beauty and serenetiy of Seneca Lake at the doorstep. This finely appointed, immaculate home is masterfully designed to be the consumate respite or casual arena for family and friendly gatherings and celebrations. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment and hope to return for years to come. Summerwind is pure perfection.

Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

The pictures really do not do this property justice. The moment I walked into the house I was blown away by the views. The house and property are absolutely breath taking. I booked this house for my sisters bachelorrette weekend since it is so close to so many wineries. All of us were able to sleep comfortably (12 people total). I cooked several meals at the house and had everything I needed to prepare meals. We spent most of our time out on the dock relaxing and taking in the views. As some others have said the one shower is very small and difficult to move around but the other shower is perfect! My only complaints are the fruit flies and the wireless internet did not work well. We did not really need to internet but would have been nice for the kids to watch Netflix. Jackie was fantastic to work with and I would love to stay again at this stunning property.

The place is beautiful, the perfect home for entertaining and relaxing.

We stayed here with a group of 12 adults. As soon as we walked in, it was better then we expected! The home is beautifully restored and the owners have everything you need. It was cold, so we couldn’t enjoy the outdoor space but the outdoor space would be amazing during warmer weather. The beds were comfy, the living space is open and welcoming. We went to the wineries and it’s in a nice location because you could go either way around the lake. Would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a relaxing, beautiful home to stay in.

Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and the cabin is beautiful and well kept! The only thing I would change is turning the cleaning closet into a 3rd bathroom. With 12 ladies and 2 bathrooms that was sometimes a struggle but other than that it was an excellent time and we would do it again!!

Perfect property for our family wedding at a nearby Finger Lakes winery

  • 5 of 5

Finger Lakes Finest..... the name says it all. The property has been recently renovated and the whole house is extremely well done....better than the online pictures show. The amenities inside and outside the house were great. The family is already making plans for next year!

Luxury on the lake

  • 5 of 5

Great house with all the expected amenities and then some that go way over the top (wine cooler? ice maker? built in speaker system indoor and outdoor? Large built in grill with outdoor mini fridge? Seven head shower?) Beautiful through and through. Four private bedrooms with a spacious common area and kitchen and three levels of outdoor space. What more could you ask for?

Beautiful home, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Summer wind could not have been better! The cottage is beautiful and location is perfect. Watching the sun set from the amazing dock was how we ended each evening. We hope to have the opportunity to return to this beautiful spot on Seneca Lake!!!
