About Lisa Harrington

We savor our time on Seneca Lake with friends and family, creating wonderful memories with our three children. We enjoy the clean cool waters and the peaceful surroundings, as well as the wonderful wineries and restaurants. We enjoy making constant improvements to our all-wood home (with an interior full of that rich wood smell) and look forward to sharing our lake side retreat with you.

Lisa Harrington purchased this house in 2011

Why Lisa Harrington chose Geneva

We purchased this home from a family who built it together by hand, and we hope to maintain the wonderfully warm and inviting feel. The view of the lake from this home is so inspirational, the waters are clean, refreshing and replenishing. Besides relaxing and taking in the beautiful surroundings, there are various water sports to be enjoyed --boating, sailing, canoeing--there are over 37 wonderful wineries peppered around the lake, local dairy farms for cheese and ice cream tasting, local parks and beaches, biking and hiking paths, restaurants, spas, water parks, even Waterloo Outlet Mall is close for rainy days.

We hope to retire in this lake home someday. With three children and a family landscaping business we are limited in the time that we spend at the lake. Therefore, we are renting it to allow others the opportunity to enjoy the peaceful setting on the water---renting also helps pay the taxes and maintenance costs.

So please enjoy the all wood home and the stars - the quiet and the lake.

What makes this house unique

With the low ambient light you will see lots of stars. Just walk out the door onto the deck and look up - millions of stars and the sound of waves. In the winter enjoy all the wild waterfowl from all over North America - Seneca Lake does not freeze so enjoy all the waterfowl wintering over - including lots of loons. See Osprey and bald eagles fish and fly. This is a place of peace and quiet - of nature and when inside the wood smell and sight gives a comfort to all.

A little piece of heaven! Highly recommend.

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from a long weekend at Wood and Water for the Hobart and William Smith graduation. The house is immaculate with a wonderful feel to it. The photos can't do it justice...it is much larger than it appears. There were 11 of us sleeping there. Plenty of room/rooms/bathrooms. The main living area is perfect for gathering but there are many other places to retreat to if you need a break. We had some friends over for dinner and the large deck, backyard and dock as well as the main living area gave us lots of room to visit and mingle.

The hosts were so great to deal with. Very patient with our questions and gave us great info on local places to eat and visit.

The beds were comfortable. Each room has a ceiling fan and there is updated AC units (which we didn't need) so you can regulate the temp to your liking.

We used the grill and the oven...whatever kind of food prep you need is there.

And the views!!! Mornings are beautiful and sunsets are spectacular.

12 ish minutes to downtown Geneva and all the cool places that has to offer.

What more can I say? Highly recommend. Helped make a special occasion even more memorable for my family and me.

Perfect Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This is my first time using VRBO, and it did not disappoint! The property we stayed at was gorgeous, clean, had an ideal view, and was perfect for our girls' weekend getaway! As the Maid of Honor for my sister's wedding I wanted her to have a perfect weekend in the Finger Lakes, since this was where she got engaged, and the whole weekend went so smoothly. We loved the place, it was PERFECT for our group, and the dock provided a beautiful backdrop for group photos! I would DEFINITELY stay here again. Lisa, the property owner, communicated quickly and clearly with me, and was so warm and accommodating. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

Amazing house!! Perfectly located for winery visits.

  • 5 of 5

Our book club of 9 ladies and a baby spent a weeny here exploring the local wineries and sites. The house is beautiful and even better than described. The owner was great and gave us perfect suggestions of where to visit and go hiking.

You will love this house and the amazing sunsets over the lake!
