Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We have purchased this cottage and have remodeled it to our expectations and have had many great weekend getaways with our 4 children. Taking time to enjoy the local wineries that are within minutes of the area is such a fantastic way to relax and enjoy our time together. Being that this cottage originally was intended for owner occupancy, every detail, furnishings and bedding are of most quality and comfort.

Why the Owner Chose Geneva:
This cottage has been completely remodeled inside. The open floor plan allows for views of the lake from the kitchen and an adjacent living room. New stairs to the lakefront beach area for fantastic sunsets and plenty of beach frontage for enjoying the waters edge, kayaking or swimming.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This cottage has a very large lot (about an acre) ample parking for easy access. Unlike many cottages on Seneca Lake, You will find that although it is very secluded on a private drive, You will find yourself very close to many local attractions, shopping centers and Vineyards. The location is perfect as Belhurst Castle and Geneva on the Lake are directly across from the property. The North End of the Lake is where you want to be.
