Dresden house description

***Brand new listing as of 5/16/14***

Our home features a truly unique combination of over 90' of prime water frontage with ZERO steps to the beach & an amazing, lush, level yard for your group to enjoy.

Our home features 3 large bedrooms and a common room on the upper level, a modern bath & kitchen, a great family room with wall of windows that look directly out on the lake, a covered outdoor patio for sitting outside in the shade, or getting out of the elements, and a picturesque two story fireplace made of local river stone.

Our home features all of the creature comforts you could ever ask for - to include a modern, fully stocked kitchen, a microwave, full sized refrigerator, oven, toaster, coffee maker, coffee grinder, blender, baking sheets, mixing bowls, all imaginable utensils, etc.

All 3 bedrooms feature brand new queen beds. All of our linens are brand new and are included with the cost of the rental.

Our family room has a genuine leather couch & love seat, a modern coffee table, end tables, lamps - and provides panoramic views of one of the widest parts of Seneca Lake from every window.

Arguably, the best feature of the house is the lot where the cottage is sited. We are located at the end of our street. Once you pull up to the house you'll first notice the size of the flat, level yard - which is perfect for games of badminton, corn-hole, frisbee - or for just lounging in the sun. And of course, this house offers AMAZING views of the lake from every vantage point of the property. There is truly nothing like spending quality time at the lake with family and friends in a setting such as this.

We've spent many evenings around the lakeside fire pit enjoying a nice glass of wine with our family and friends - and invite you to do the same.

                      We are located in the heart of the Seneca Lake Wine Trail and are ideally located in the middle of the lake on the western shore. We are within 5 minutes of several world renowned wineries, and are within a 10-15 minute drive of all of the wineries along the western shore of Seneca Lake. We are also very close to Watkins Glen State Park, the towns of Watkins Glen & Geneva, and the villages of Penn Yan, Hammondsport, Dresden and Dundee.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2014

                      About the owner: I was first introduced to Seneca Lake by my wife in 1994. She 'convinced' me to visit the lake with her family because she was from Rochester and her family had been going there since the 1930s. So, I reluctantly went along. When I got there I was absolutely floored by the beauty of the region and by the vast scale and size of the lake. From the first day I arrived in 1994, I knew I wanted to spend as much time in the Finger Lakes Region as humanly possible.

                      Why the Owner Chose Dresden:
                      Our home truly has a unique combination of accessibility, privacy, level yard, lots of beach frontage, and ZERO steps to the beach. It absolutely is the perfect property to gather with friends and the perfect location for you to unwind, relax and become clear-minded.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      This home offers incredible views of the lake from every room. You are intimately close to the 'Waters Edge' - so much so that the gentle lapping of the waves at the shoreline from your bedroom window will undoubtedly lull you right to sleep. Last, the level yard allows you to spread out and enjoy family games of badminton, corn-hole, frisbee, etc.
