Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a stay at home grandmother who loves to shop and decorate. Mike is a retired technician at Verizon telephone in Geneva. We love to spend time with family on the lake or go for a ride on our motorcycle through the country side. We were both raised in this area and could not think of a better place to live and raise our two girls.

Why the Owner Chose Geneva, NY, USA:
We have lived on the lake for twenty nine years. When this home, five houses from ours went up for sale, we decided to buy it to rent out as a vacation home. We wanted to allow others to enjoy the lake as we have for a reasonable price. We have truly enjoyed meeting some wonderful new friends who are now regulars. Our goal is for you to have a great vacation and enjoy Seneca Lake. Our feed back from the last nine years has been all positive as you can see from our reviews from past renters. Come enjoy a Taste Of Serenity on Seneca Lake

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Taste of Serenity is a great peaceful place in a older residential neighborhood. Located one mile off the main road means no traffic noise. The east side of the lake is the perfect side as the sun rises in the back yard and sets over the lake. The west wind over the lake most often provides a cooling breeze on those so hot summer days.
