Welcome to Lakeside Landing! Lakeside Landing is a very special place. The charming road to this home leads you through a vineyard and forest, ending at this amazing property overlooking Seneca Lake. Once here, you will find a unique house that is spacious, warm and inviting, with spectacular views of the lake and forest and a beautiful private shale beach where you can enjoy water activities and glorious sunsets.
LOCATION: Lakeside Landing is located on the eastern shore of Seneca Lake in the Finger Lakes region of NY state. We are 10 minutes north of Watkins Glen (Watkins Glen International Raceway), about 1/2 hour from Ithaca (Cornell University, Ithaca College) and Corning (Corning Incorporated), and about 1-1/4 hour from Rochester (to the northwest) and Syracuse (to the northeast). We are in the middle of the Finger Lakes wine region and just minutes away from amazing wineries, microbreweries, and great farm-to-table restaurants.
THE HOUSE: Lakeside Landing is a spacious and inviting home with multiple levels and gathering spaces, uniquely suited to accommodate groups of various sizes and configurations. The cedar siding and rock walls around the property nestle it perfectly into the forested lakeside. The owners of Lakeside Landing have owned the property for over 20 years and spent many summers and winter holidays in the home, thus it is fully outfitted with high quality furnishings and accessories for your use and enjoyment.
The house has 3 primary levels: the main floor, the upper level studio, and the patio level.
You enter the home on the main floor, where the great room is the center of activity. The great room is open concept in design, and includes a living area with ample and comfortable seating, a dining area with a long dining table for harvest-style meals, and a large and modern high-end open kitchen that any chef would appreciate. The great room is bright and airy opens to an expansive wood deck overlooking the lake. Just off the great room is a library nook filled with books, puzzles, and games, as well as a guest bedroom and full bath. In the summer months, the double sliding doors to the deck are thrown open to bring the outdoors in (and vice versa); in the winter months, a fire burning in the custom iron wood stove turns the great room into a cozy lodge-like space.
The upper level of the house features a large studio and multi-purpose space with soaring beamed ceilings and windows offering amazing views of the forest and lake. The upper level includes a cozy sitting room with a unique fieldstone hearth and double-story chimney fireplace (built with stones from the property), a large open family room with amazing views of the forest, and an office space. Another wood deck off this level leads to the fenced grassy yard, forest, and children's playground. The master loft bedroom sits at the very top of this space.
The patio level of the house opens to a patio that overlooks the lake and to the fenced yard. On this level you will find four bedrooms, a full bath, and a game room that children love! Just up from the patio level is the "mezzanine" area of the house, which includes a large laundry room, half bath, and access to the side yard.

OUTDOORS: Lakeside Landing is located on 8 very private acres of forest and beachfront property. The house is located at the end of a private road. The property includes extensive fieldstone rock walls and paths, landscaped garden with blooming trees, perennial flowers, and plants appropriate for a year-round lake house, and a flat fenced grass yard. There is a playground with a full climbing structure, slide, treehouse, and sandbox.
There are multiple wood decks and patios that open the house to the outdoors. The fenced flat grass yard is great for outdoor games (croquet anyone?).
Wood stairs take you to the private beach. On the way to the beach is a view deck that offers a wonderful and private place to enjoy the sunset! At the beach is a cabana house complete with a changing room and refrigerator/beach supplies. The beach is a long shale beach (200') with several fascinating shale rock formations. Shalestone is smooth and flat, easy to walk on barefooted and makes for epic rock skipping contests!
