Nitty gritty detailed information:
Situated on 3 wooded acres, our newly renovated, spacious home offers a peaceful place to escape and relax with your family and friends. We have done that many times and we would love for you to have the same wonderful experience!
Our home features 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms (one bathroom, which has recently been completely re-done, includes a tub while the other two have showers). A spacious living room with flat screen TV, gas fireplace (perfect for most mornings in upstate NY!) and vaulted ceiling with a wall of windows. A separate family/game room features a separate flat screen tv and an air hockey table which we've witnessed first hand is fun for all ages! Our large eat-in kitchen with dining area for at least 8 and the large central island make it the perfect gathering spot as the heart of the home. You will enjoy meals here whether that means cooking with all the pots/pans or whether that means take-out as there's plenty of space for both! The fridge and dishwasher can make stowing away leftovers and dirty dishes a breeze. Our spacious deck with outdoor sectional and chaise lounge chairs has to be a highlight of the home too - perfect for lounging with a good book, a drink/snack or just watching the sunset over seasonal lake views while listening to nature. We have a swimming pool with its own deck, sun umbrella and deck chairs. The third "dining" deck with gas grill also lets you enjoy the outdoors with a separate outdoor dining table (with seating for 8). Each bedroom and bath is located on separate floors allowing for privacy while still being together. You and your guests will have ample space to park your cars/trucks/boats, etc! (For those interested, nearby Smith Park has a boat launch area for a nomimal daily fee.)
We hope you'll feel pampered and comfortable in each bedroom. With clean linens and fluffy pillows, you'll find that the lower level and main floor bedrooms both have queen beds (for a total of 4 guests) - with the main bedroom having its own flat screen tv. Kids will LOVE the upstairs bedroom which features two fun ‘boat’ beds that each include an additional trundle bed- loads of fun for family sleepovers. (We have found it is nice to tuck the kids away safely upstairs for the night while we continued a relaxing evening downstairs without having to worry if we were being too loud.) FYI, this bedroom is quite large and can accommodate an aerobed which is also available for use as an alternative in case a couple wanted to stay up there. All the bedrooms have blinds and/or curtains that block out the majority of sunlight that comes through the windows. The house can accommodate an additional 4 guests with the use of two queen sleeper sofas. We have enough linens and pillows for those too! These are located in the living room and game room so there is nobody sharing a bedroom.
Whether you're staying for a week or a long weekend, we have tried to provide all of the conveniences of being at home without you having to bring anything! All of the below are provided:
• Clean linens (bath towels, pool towels, sheets, pillowcases, comforters/blankets)
• Ironing board, vacuum, hair dryer and pool floats
• Cable TV
• STRONG Wifi and cell signals (no land line)
• Washer and dryer
• Fully equipped kitchen features pots, pans, utensils, plates, glasses, mugs, kitchen towels, toaster oven, blender, coffee maker and Keurig
• Central A/C and radiant heating
• Gas fireplace
• New stainless steel appliances
• Gas grill on deck (grill tools)
• Child-friendly conveniences available upon request: Pack n play, baby monitor (audio - not video!), high chair and 2 booster seats
The house is set on a large lot and an uber private location provides tranquility at all times of the day and night - with plenty of space to explore, run around and enjoy. You can hear an occasional jet ski but more often than not, this house nestled in the woods will make you feel like you're camping with all the comforts of a fully functional, tempature controlled home :)
We feel our location in Hector is as good as it gets! More than 20 wineries, a handful of breweries and a few distilleries are just a short drive away, along with several delicious restaurants to fit everyone’s budget - from fine dining (Farm to table) to comfort food (pizza/burgers). Most offer beautiful views of the lake to enjoy while you sip/taste the best of the region. We would be happy to recommend some of our favorites to you!
From the house, it’s a 5 minute walk (10 minutes with little ones or lessor mobility) down to the lake with direct access through Smith Park which borders our property. When in-season, the wade-in beach has lifeguards on duty, benches, grills and plenty of space to grab a nap, catch up on a book or splash around. As we've experienced ourselves with our kids, it is so much fun for kids to play with the pebbles and run in/out of the shallow water! For the braver souls, there is a dock to jump into the deeper water too! A quick drive to downtown Watkins Glen is where you'll find grocery stores, gas stations, banks, shopping, the raceway, Watkins Glen Gorge (amazing views and a great workout!), and Captain Bill’s lake cruises (really nicely run/operated). In short, there is plenty to do – or do nothing at all! As if it's not obvious from the above, kids are welcome, and we can't forget to allow for our four legged dog friends either! (Sorry we are highly allergic to cats!) There is no smoking allowed in our home.
