Explore the Seneca Lake Wine Trail from a secluded home on a private point. Tucked into the edge of a 15 acre grove of trees, streams and waterfalls, set back from Seneca Lake. You might wish to walk up through the vineyards to two wineries and a brewery to bring back something for the evening to drink on the dock, while watching the setting sun. Fully stocked with wineglasses, information on Finger Lakes Wine, and personal touring and restaurant recommendations, the house is in rustic log cabin/frame style.
Lofted Log Bedroom with Moon Windows: Complete with a master bedroom with a high-beamed ceiling, a second bedroom with a double bed, and one single room with a standard bed and a built-in bed alcove for a child. There are two bathrooms, a stereo system with an extensive library of records, tapes, and CD's, shelves of books, and a selection of the best books (in my opinion) about the local area. Linens and most other details required to move in are supplied.
A walk through a grove and down a stairway takes you down to the lake and the dock, set among other lake cottages. There is a place to tie your boat (launching is at Lodi Point) and safe places for children to swim, including the wading-pool stream in which generations of lake dwellers have splashed. Seneca Lake is notable for fishing: the world’s largest lake trout are routinely taken here.
This is a rustic home, built of local materials It is not a condo. Kids can leave wet swimming suits on the floor and it’s not going to hurt anything. Grill in the Weber and eat out on the picnic table.
Write for complete photos. Ride a BMW, and I'll take you on a tour of the Finger Lakes, which my friend Drew from flat Florida deems a 'Motorcycle Amusement Park.' OK, he rides a Bonneville. Whatever bike (or bicycle) you ride, I can map you or show you the great bike roads. No motorcycle gangs unless they ride Beemers..
It was fun to be in the woods but also have easy access to the lake. It was amazingly quiet all week long and swimming was great. Our day trips to Watkins Glen State Park, Taughannock and Buttermilk Falls, and Skaneateles were quite memorable.
We had a great visit. The kids really enjoyed the water and the creek & everything about the house. The house was gorgeous!
Well-behaved dogs are welcome. No cats, unfortunately, as other guests might be allergic to them. The first floor can be made accessible by my addition of a ramp. It is serviceable, not ADA....moreless

About the owner: I built this place in the mid-1970's, and my son Nate grew up here in the summers. We now live in Ithaca, where I practice psychotherapy and he cooks at Viva Tacqueria, an Ithaca landmark.
Why the Owner Chose Lodi: This home is almost entirely built from local trees and natural materials: red pine, hemlock, fir, and oak. We used to live here year-round.
The Unique Benefits at this House: On the Seneca Wine Trail and Seneca Lake, but very private. Surrounded by our 15 acre woods, streams, and waterfalls, the pebble beachfront, neighboring docks and family cottages retain the feel of a simpler 'summer at the lake.'
