About the property

Welcome to Four Chimneys Estate, a gorgeous home overlooking the shores of Seneca Lake. Four Chimneys is set in the middle of acres of Vineyards and Farmland. This home is located on the west side of Seneca Lake-the largest and deepest of the Finger Lakes-within 15 minutes of the village of Penn Yan and 30 minutes from Watkins Glen. Four Chimneys is a large 1800's estate house, formerly the home of the first Organic Winery in the Finger Lakes. This home is quite large and has been updated with beautiful new kitchen and baths, but still maintains the beatiful charm of an old home. It's a perfect place to spend your getaway with a group of family and friends.

Inside the house, you will find a new kitchen furnished with stainless steel appliances. The dining room is large and has a walk-out screened in porch attached for outdoor dining.

There is plenty of living space for a group in this home. Four Chimneys has a large living room and library area, along with another family room for watching tv or relaxing.

The bedrooms at Four Chimneys are quite large and spacious, furnished with new mattresses and period furniture. Four of the bedrooms have their own bathrooms attached. Each bathroom is newly renovated, with beautiful tile and stone work. Linens, bedding, towels and washcloths as well as toiletries are all included in your stay. We also provide cleaning service for the house after your departure.

An additional sleeper sofa can be found in the front parlor of the house.

The lawn at Four Chimneys is large, with new landscaping and patio. The yard looks out over Seneca Lake to the east and it is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the view, let the kids run free, or relax around a campfire. You get the best of the Finger Lakes right in your back yard, since the lawn connects to several acres of vineyards and wheat fields.

As a guest, you'll find no lack of things to do around you. Four Chimneys is located along the Seneca Lake Wine Trail and you can find dozens of wineries within a few miles of the house. If craft beers is more your thing, there are some great breweries as well, including Climbing Bines, Rooster Fish Brewery, War Horse Brewing, and many others. There are many wonderful and artisan dining options in this area of the Finger Lakes. Penn Yan, Geneva and Watkins Glen are home to wonderful coffee shops and award winning restaurants. Some of our favorites include Oak Leaf Cafe, The Wienery, Nickels Pit BBQ and Publick Coffee House.

Come stay at Four Chimneys and experience the best of the Finger Lakes in this large, gorgeous home!

Our group of 9 stayed at the Four Chimneys for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed every detail. A beautiful property, clean and spacious home, and well positioned for outdoor sports and visiting wineries. Highly recommended.

Perfect size for a group of 12. Great central location along the west side of Seneca Lake.

  • 5 of 5

Invited a group of old friends to gather for my wife's birthday celebration. Everyone was very impressed upon arrival and thoroughly enjoyed our 4 days together. Lots' of space inside and out for people to gather without feeling crowded. Nice sized kitchen made meal prep for 12 pretty easy. Would return again in a heartbeat.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for New Years weekend. It was everything and more we expected. All the rooms were beautifully decorated and the beds were so comfortable!

The location was perfect with a beautiful view of the lake.

We had one slight issue with the internet connection, but Joleen addressed it promptly and it was up and running in no time.

We would definitely recommend staying here!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We are a group of 14 who get together annually (for 30+ years now) and dedcided not to stay in a hotel this year. We had a wondeful stay at Four Chimneys!

The house is lovely and extremely clean. We spent a great deal of time on the screened in porch, just enjoying the view. At night we had a fire and made S'Mores!

For a house built in the 1800's, whoever did the remodel and updates did a fantastic job. The kitchen and the multiple bathrooms were very well done and modern.

This one is a gem!!

Destination wedding and family get together

  • 5 of 5

This old farm estate was the perfect fit for our family of 14 including grandchildren. All baths were new. The vista was outstanding. The location was within 5 miles of the wedding site. All of us are 400+ miles away. And having the home in great shape was wonderful.

Amazing property and great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely long weekend there with a group of friends. The house is big, clean and newly renovated. The location is great and is close to Hermann Weimer's, and Watkins Glens downtown and Watkins Glen State Park. The property manager is very helpful and answers all my questions in a timely fashion. We will definitely come back and stay there again.
