Property description

It's all about the lake! Waneta Lake is nestled between the large Finger Lakes of Seneca and Keuka. It is a very relaxed family friendly vacation spot. Wake up in the morning and enjoy a cup of coffee sitting at the dock. Spend the day fishing, swimming, or boating. The lake water is shallow so water warms earlier than most.
If it rains, wineries, restaurants and local artists are minutes away, many host weekend art or music festivals. Corning, less than an hour away, hosts the world famous Corning Glass Museum and the Rockwell Western Art Museum. Within 20 minutes drive is the Gorge at Watkins Glen ( a beautiful hike on a cool day), golf, the Windmill farmers/craft market, and the Curtis Motorcycle/Aircraft Museum. Racing fans may want to visit Watkins Glen and Blackrock Racetracks. Nice restaurants can be found on Seneca and Keuka lakes, we enjoy the Villiage Tavern in Hammondsport.
On most evenings we grill our own dinner, and eat it either under the pavilion (seats about 10) or on the patio overlooking the lake (seats 4-6). If it is nice we finish up with a fire on the beach. The stars are beautiful.
The Facilities: Cottage is 65 years old, capacity is 6 people, 2 bedrooms. One queen bed, one double bed. A futon with a top bunk (150 pound weight limit) is off the living room.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are Dan and Beth Swiler, my wife describes us as middle aged, but I disagree. We have children who all have different interests and ages, and none of us are excited about going places and waiting in lines. However, they all agree on the lake. We graduated from local Western NY schools (Alfred U and Tech) and love the area (in the summer). We now live in Toledo, OH and spend 2-3 weeks every year enjoying the lake.

Why the Owner Chose Hammondsport, NY, USA:
We grew up in the area so it gives us a spot to entertain old friends and family or to just relax. You can keep the rest of the world outside unless you choose to let it in.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
On most weeks the water is quiet until 10AM or later, this leads to great ski runs. Last year dozens of Muskie were caught (we have a picture of one our friend pulled in). Mostly it is bass, perch and bluegill.
