Welcome to Papa's Paradise, a haven of peace and comfort as you vacation in the Finger Lakes! This older lake home is located on the east side of Waneta Lake—a small lake within the Finger Lakes region—within 15 minutes of the village of Watkins Glen and 30 minutes from Corning. The quiet road to the house contributes to the tranquility of the setting, as well as the wildlife you may see from the house. Whether you have a group of two or ten, there's plenty of room for you to vacation in comfort.
Inside the house you will find a roomy kitchen, with an eat-in island for four and a dining room that seats eight, there’s plenty of indoor seating at meals. If you still need more space, the attached, large deck provides great overflow space and allows you to enjoy the outdoors in comfort. The deck has 4 round tables and chairs for seating/dining and is just feet away from the water. Sunsets are amazing from the deck and enjoying a glass of wine while sitting around the gas fire pit is a wonderful way to end the day.
If the weather doesn't permit you to use the deck, take advantage of the great room in the middle of the house where you will find comfortable lounge space as well as a pool table. Also in the upstairs great room/bedroom there is a flat screen t.v. along with a DVD player which you can enjoy from the couch. So bring your favorite DVD's for those rainy days--there is also a large collection of DVD's at the house for you to enjoy as well.
Papa's Paradise is an older home and has had many multi-generational memories made here. You'll feel like you've taken a step back in time but with all the comforts you need.
The house has an open floor plan with the kitchen open to the dining area and living room. Several sets of patio doors lead to the deck from the dining room and living room and provide amazing view of the lake. The living room has cathedral ceilings and an open stair case to the upstairs, as well as plenty of seating space and the pool table for a good game of pool--with a ping pong table top if you prefer. There is quite an extensive library of books throughout the house for reading on a rainy day, as well as many board games.
The main floor has an additional sitting room tucked away to one side of the house and just in back of this sitting area is a bedroom with 3 twin beds (one set of bunks) and a full bath with shower and tub.
On the other end of the house, off of the main living room, is a large bedroom with a Queen size bed and an attached half bathroom.
Upstairs is a large bedroom/family room with a Queen size bed, Twin bed, and Double bed Futon. This room sleeps 5 people and has plenty of floor space for an added air mattress. There is an attached full bath with a shower as well as a large walk-in closet.
The clear view to the west, from the house and deck, gives you the perfect place to catch the sunset. Use the lawn chairs to relax and watch the lake as you prepare your supper on the deck grill. Bring a kayak or a canoe and paddle around this peaceful lake. You will have your own private dock for boating or swimming.
As a guest, you'll find no lack of things to do around you. There are many places to hike in the nearby area, including Watkins Glen state park. There are many wineries/breweries around Keuka and Seneca Lake and Corning has a wonderful river walk and street of shops.
