Fully equipped kitchen with everything you will need including a trash compactor, garbage disposal, food processor & microwave. Pillows, blankets, and kitchen towels are provided; you bring the sheets and bath towels. The water is filtered but you need to bring your own drinking water and paper products.

Waneta Lake is located in the heart of the Finger Lakes so if you are looking for a little adventure then be sure to visit the eight wineries on the Keuka Lake Wine Trail, and if that isn't enough there are more to venture to on Seneca Lake which offers a unique tasteful experience at each location. If the wineries aren't your thing then visit the nearby Corning Glass Museum, Rockwell Western Art Museum or Curtis Motorcycle/Aircraft Museum.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: When I was 2 yrs old I jumped off the dock on Waneta Lake and scared my mother to death. It was just the beginning of an adventuresome & exciting life that I was going to experience every summer. I have so many fond memories and valued all the friendships that I developed especially my water skiing buddies. We competed and traveled NY to several competitions and I earned my expert rating in slalom and was offered a job by Cypress Gardens. The lake will always be close to my heart even though I can't be there as much now since living in Florida. Renting it out gives other people the wonderful opportunity that I have so enjoyed and now they can experience also.

              Why the Owner Chose Waneta Lake:
              It was my lifelong dream of owning my own place on the lake and I was fortunate that my family always owned this place and it has been passed down through the generations. My children also have a love for the lake and the best thing this past summer was seeing my 5 yr old grandson getting up on the ski sled that my kids used when they were young.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              It is so conveniently located to the many attractions that surround the lake that you will never be bored. You can either just be lazy and float on your raft or jump in the car to go shopping, sightseeing, races at Watkins Glen or just enjoy the beautiful fall leaves on the hillside that surrounds the lake.
