Dundee house description
This beautiful exclusive vacation home is nestled in a private 4 acre wooded compound, once an abundant fruit orchard on the breathtaking western shore of Seneca Lake, in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country. This gorgeous contemporary 3 bedroom lake home provides a relaxing, memorable view of Seneca Lake with its floor to ceiling windows, as well as access to the lake, a short stroll from the house.(walk is about the length of 2 football fields) The wrap around deck allows guests the opportunity to BBQ their favorites on the outdoor gas grill with easy access to the kitchen through a sliding glass entry. Walk down to the lake a few hundred feet or drive, there is private parking to the staircase leading to a 100' dock centered within 100' of your personal private shale beach. Sit and enjoy a glass of your favorite wine, fish, take a canoe ride or just relax and enjoy the tranquil beauty of Seneca Lake. While visiting The Buttonwood House, be sure to explore the abundance of fine wineries along the Seneca Lake Wine Trail.
Internet Access. No Pets please.
Newly Remodeled: This vacation home was built 15 years ago on a secluded 4-acre lakefront lot with a spectular view. Recently acquired, all furnishings are new. Main Bath remodeled 2013 to include spacious Granite Shower. Window walls go across the front of the house. Spacious, new, composite decking surrounds 3 sides of the home. Ample parking.
Lake Front: The beach is a short walk (think the length of two football fields) or ride (park at top of stairs) to staircase leading to a large private dock, deck with a covered swing and 100' of private natural shale beachfront. There is a canoe available. The water is 6' deep at the end of the dock. It's a shale beach and shale lake bottom-some of the rocks can be sharp so please bring old sneakers or water shoes for walking in the water and on the beach. Weed mats adjacent to the dock allow for a comfortable swim area for adults and children. There is a comfy porch swing at the shoreline. Nice to just sit and enjoy the view with a glass of wine and maybe a picnic lunch or keep and eye on the kids playing in the water.
Further Details: The Buttonwood House sleeps 6 people max. The master bedroom and bathroom on the main level. The kitchen/dining area has a sliding glass door leading to the wraparound deck plus floor to ceiling windows with views of Seneca Lake.

Fabulous, Perfect Trip!Guest comment entered by manager
Fabulous, Perfect Trip!
Pat and Owen We had such a fabulous, perfect trip staying at your beautiful house on the lake. The six of us are all friends from high school and are now scattered. PA, CT, NY- and it's a rare treat for us to have this sort of quality time together. We couldn't have picked a more special place for this reunion, and I think I speak for all of us when I say that we'll carry these memories in our hearts and minds for years to come. Thank you for everything. I'd love to come back!

We were in Heaven Here!
The seclusion and peacefulness of the house were amazing. We had such a great time on the wine trail and got to enjoy fireworks up and down the lake from the dock (and did some stargazing as well!)

Buttonwood Poem-by Selensgrove Pa. guest
Meteor showers at their very best. 10 hours sleep for a much-needed rest! Scones and popovers with butter and jam. Judy out reading and getting a tan. Lots of great wine to be tasted and more. Beautiful vineyards and vistas galore. How sorry we are to be going out the door! From the weary travelers who are weary no more!

Pat and Owen, This is our fifth trip to Seneca Lake, and by far, this is the best place that we have ever stayed in. The house is great, the view is SPECTACULAR, and the stars at night by the lake are Breathtaking. Sorry we missed visiting with you....Will just have to catch up next time.

Dancing under the Stars-As good as it gets!
Pat and Owen, Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful home for a long weekend. Pat, it was lovely to meet you-you and your home are warm and inviting. We cannot say enough about how lovely this home is-warm, comfortable, homey...EVERYTHING you can possibly need is here. We love the wildlife-blue birds, blue jays, ( & others) and deer. We spent a great deal of time on the deck-soaking in the peace and serenity. Dancing under the stars was as romantic as it gets. Three days was not long enough! We can't wait to return. Thank you again.

Buttonwood-A Hidden TreasureGuest comment entered by manager
Buttonwood-A Hidden Treasure
Had a wonderful time in your idyllic holiday home. We take so many memories back to England with us: the view, peace and quiet, the deer on their 'run' past the house....and the fact that our 3 children of 21,19 and 18 were kept wonderfully entertained in the canoe, swimming, playing ping pong-and the family games of monopoly. We don't want to leave! Thank you , Pat and Owen, for putting so much thought into making the house so 'special'.

Beautiful House-VERY Clean
Thanks so much. We had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful and VERY clean. Everyone kept commenting on that. We also loved the location, as it was very centrally located and yet it had so much space of its own, so you felt very private. We also LOVED the deck! It was a spectacular time and thanks so much for being so nice and accommodating.

Wonderful 40th ReunionGuest comment entered by manager
Wonderful 40th Reunion
We rented the Buttonwood for our very own 40th High School Reunion. There were six of us girls and we found the house clean, comfortable and very well equipped with just about everything one would need. We especially enjoyed the deck and of course, the wonderful view. Between the Windmill, wineries, and Watkins Glen, we had plenty to do. Thank you for a very enjoyable 3 days and thank you, Diane, for all your help with our reservation.
