Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: Michael & Donna were young childhood sweethearts and then parted ways shortly after high school graduation. They each led separate lives until a mere 25 years later Michael ran into Donna; and their romance started right up where it left off! They shortly married and honeymooned in the Finger Lakes. After visiting some wineries, Donna & Michael decided this would be the perfect 'New Way of Life,' running a winery together. They figured working together would be a fabulous way to make up for lost time! In 2000 they bought the winery property, and turned their life's mission into learning how to start a winery---Michael was already an accomplished winemaker for the past 25 years. Fast forward to 2008 the Pompous Ass Winery opened. Both Michael & Donna are whimsical; which they wanted to portray in their theme. As you can see the picture above, they are posing with 'Sir Jackson' the handsome character also known as 'The Pompous Ass.'
Why the Owner Chose Watkins Glen: Last year in 2011, two house flanking either side of the winery property we put up for sale. Michael & Donna decided to purchase both to protect their investment; which now begs the question as what to do with these two houses? After some deliberation, they decided to renovate and use them for weekly rentals; after all, they live in a tourist area and they are located right on the Seneca Lake Wine trail. Every detail was by their design, having the importance of both convenience and comfort as their top priory. A house fit for a pompous ass was their motto; which is why they lovingly named the houses,' Jackie A's Cottage' and the 'Sir Jackson House.'
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: This Cottage is perfectly located right on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail, on the west side of the lake.
This house has everything a family of 4 or 2 couples could ever need to enjoy a Finger lakes get away. It has air conditioning in every room, central hot air heat, plenty of hot water, a state of the art water purification and softening system.
Beautifully furnishes through out and newly refinished hardwood floors.
There is a large covered deck in the back of the cottage to enjoy cookouts, fun and relaxation.
