At the back there's an expansive lakeside deck to enjoy the sunsets with a 7 person hot tub (open May through October). Located on a quiet dead-end road with Sampson State Park just a 5 minute walk away leading to over 20 walking trails. New 100 foot dock out over the lake ( bring your fishing gear).

The main entrance has access to the first floor bathroom and leads into a new modern kitchen with breakfast nook. The modern kitchen is well equipped with hardwood floors throughout the main floor and opens through french doors to the lakeside deck.

The living room has comfortable leather furniture that includes a queen pullout sofa. The large dining room has a table with six chairs on one side of the area and a wood burning fireplace sitting area on the other side of the room - all in an open floor plan with an amazing view of the lake.

The heated and finished garage is used as a game room with a ping pong table, foosball table, futon couch and comfortable chairs for your enjoyment. There is also a laundry area in the corner.

The house offers luxury and relaxation in the heart of the Finger Lakes where you can enjoy lake living. The home offers privacy but is also conveniently situated on the Seneca Wine Trail and is a short drive from Geneva, Seneca Falls, Ithaca and Watkins Glen as well as easy access to Interstate 90 or I86/Rte 17.

The home is close to many popular lakeside wedding locations - Belhurst Castle, Ventosa Vineyard, Esperanza Mansion, Wagner Winery and Logan Ridge Estates.

Great home --right on Seneca Lake. We had 5 couples that get away from it all each October and this home fit the bill! Great Location, near a ton of Winery's and Brewery's. This house was stocked with everything you need-- 5 bedrooms with comfort . Huge living room and open concept kitchen. The long dock out to the lake with table and chairs at the end. The paddle boat and canoe's got a lot of use the week we were there... HOT TUB--we utilized that constantly as the nights were cool. Kitchen was well stocked with every imaginable pot, pan and utensil you will every need...... The garage had a ping pong table and a foosball table -- spent a lot of time playing way to much ping pong!! And we cannot say enough about the owners- Tom and Diana are the best..!! highly recommend this and we will definitely be returning...don't hesitate to book this home-- it is a Five Star rating ***** all the way around.

Perfect Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the home for my son's college graduation....and have to say it by far exceeded our expectations! The house is absolutely beautiful and Diane went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we would need. The view is magnificent ...and the layout was perfect. The photos do not do the house justice... You will not regret renting this home!!

Senior Ladies Fall Get-away

  • 5 of 5

8 of us spent 4 nights in this beautiful house on Seneca Lake .Despite 3 days of horrible weather, we loved our stay and found this house very comfortable , decorated beautifully, and has the best equipped kitchen you could ever dream of. Although we expected to eat dinner out, we enjoyed this wonderful kitchen so much, that we preferred " staying home" and cooking together every night.This is a perfect lake house! Hope we get to return next year.
