Watkins Glen house description

***Winter Special*** - 5 nights for the price of 3. Offer valid on reservation dates through March 31, 2015.

Our home, 'Promise Kept' features a professionally manicured, level, half acre lot that is perfect for games of volleyball, kickball, frisbee, etc. Our kids (and their cousins) have grown up spending summers at the lake swimming, exploring the shoreline for shells, snorkeling (yes, snorkeling) and fishing.
Our home offers a natural shale stone beach stretching over 115' with gradual water depth & is ideal for toasting marshmallows at night, or cooking over an open fire. We have all the modern amenities one could ask for: central heat and AC, a modern cherry kitchen, new appliances, 4br & 3.5 ba's & new full sized washer/dryer. The entire main level has hardwood flooring and features a vaulted great room with floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors that offer a panoramic, MILLION DOLLAR VIEW of one of the widest parts of Seneca Lake. We've spent many relaxing evenings on the deck with friends and family taking in the amazing view and enjoying a bottle of fine wine from one of the many local wineries - and invite you to do the same!

Also, this is ***THE PERFECT*** home base for your wine tasting excursion - as we are located directly on the famed Seneca Lake Wine Trail in the exact middle of Seneca Lake along the western shoreline.

Please inquire about 2 night rentals. When we do a 2 night rental we rent the house for $450/night.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  Why the Owner Chose Watkins Glen:
                  The Finger Lakes are one of the last 'undiscovered' great vacation destinations that I know of. The wineries and the outdoor activities available are without comparison on the east coast and offer a very unique combination of things to do. We chose to purchase this particular home mainly because of the size and configuration of the lot and the beach (1/2 acre, level yard with easy access to the beach and a great area for swimming), the views and the layout of the house - which is VERY open due to the great room and the wall of windows facing the water. You really feel like the lake is a part of the house because of how the home is sited and because of the wall of windows and the wraparound deck. We simply did not see any other home that was comparable.
