Watkins Glen cottage description

Nestled in the trees, overlooking Seneca Lake, on the east side offers beautiful lake & sunset views. Private beach & boat dock. Enjoy swimming in refreshing clean water. Jump from the dock or wade from the shore. Bring your boat and tie up to the dock or rent kayaks, canoes and paddleboards from a local company that delivers them to you at the cottage. Home was originally built 1910 as a guest cottage to larger family cottage next door and over the years several additions /improvements have been added, though the vintage charm remains. Original front living room opens onto covered porch overlooking the lake, beach & dock. Larger living/dining room in the back, added later, has a wood burning fireplace & baseboard heating. Master bedroom & kitchen have baseboard heat,too. Large kitchen is well equipped with any /everything one might need to make the most elaborate meal-and/or a microwave for reheating leftovers from one of the great local winery restaurants! Spacious master bedroom with king size bed, full bathroom & second bedroom upstairs. Queen size bed and additional full bath on ground floor. Ideal location feels private & secluded yet close to so much. On the Seneca Wine trail. Watkins Glen is 10 minutes away, Ithaca and Corning 30 minute drive.
