Property description

Welcome to Water's Edge!

Water's Edge is a beautifully renovated cottage set right on Seneca Lake. It's just minutes from dozens of wineries, breweries and the quaint town of Penn Yan. With more than 90' of beachfront, a lush and level yard, a covered porch, picnic table, plus a 30 foot dock -- it is the perfect spot for you Finger Lakes vacation.

****Discounted Mid-Week Rates Now Available****

The main level features a fully renovated 'great' room with the kitchen, dining area, and family room - all surrounded by 3 walls of windows offering a panoramic view of one of the widest sections of Seneca Lake. The picturesque fireplace made of local river stone and new tongue & groove pine ceiling bring the natural beauty indoors. The side door leads to a private covered outdoor patio for another spot to relax in the shade or away from the rain (should Mother Nature send some your way.)

At Water's Edge you can get away from it all, yet still have the comforts of home:

The new kitchen features granite counters, all-new stainless steel appliances, new cabinets, a built-in microwave, full-sized refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker, coffee grinder, blender, baking sheets, mixing bowls, utensils, grill tools and more.

Settle into the cushy leather sofa and love seat to enjoy the view, play a game, read a book, or - if you just can't leave technology behind - watch one of the hundreds of channels on the Satellite TV or use you own devices with the complimentary WiFi.

As you head upstairs you will pass the brand new bathroom which is now one of the most luxurious rooms in the house. In 2016, we greatly expanded the shower and finished the whole room with high end ceramic tile, lighting and fixtures.

Upstairs you have a sitting area with a queen size futon sofa/bed. Each of the 3 bedrooms have comfortable queen beds. We've decorated each room with beautiful prints taken by a local, professional photographer - and furnishings you will enjoy. Dressers, mirrors, side tables and lamps make each room both comfortable and functional.

And the views, oh the views! Leave the drapes open a bit and you might just catch the sunrise over the lake.

Aside from all of the cottage renovations, the best feature may very well be the lot. Water's Edge is located on a private lot at the end of a private road with only 4 other homes. The flat, level yard is perfect for games of badminton, whiffle ball, corn-hole, frisbee - or for just lounging around a campfire.

You get more than amazing lake views -- you get direct, easy access to the lake! The private beachfront is great for wading and swimming or launching a kayak or canoe. And the dock gives you a spot to secure and launch larger boats or jet skis. Whether you bring your own boat or rent one, there is a boat launch just a few minutes down the road.

There is truly nothing like spending quality time at the lake with family and friends!

Car: Recommended

We are located in the heart of the Seneca Lake Wine Trail and are ideally located in the middle of the lake on the western shore. We are within 5 minutes of several world renowned wineries, and are within a 10-15 minute drive of all of the wineries along the western shore of Seneca Lake. We are also very close to Watkins Glen State Park, the towns of Watkins Glen & Geneva, and the villages of Penn Yan, Hammondsport, Dresden and Dundee.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I was first introduced to Seneca Lake by my wife in 1994. She 'convinced' me to visit the lake with her family because she was from Rochester and her family had been going to Seneca Lake since the 1930s. So, I reluctantly went along. When I got there I was absolutely floored by the beauty of the region and by the vast scale and size of the lake. From the first day I arrived in 1994, I knew I wanted to spend as much time in the Finger Lakes Region as humanly possible.

Why the Owner Chose Penn Yan, NY, USA:
Our home truly has a unique combination of accessibility, privacy, level yard, lots of beach frontage, and ZERO steps to the beach. It absolutely is the perfect property where you can gather with friends & family - and has the perfect location for you to unwind, relax and become clear-minded.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home offers incredible views of the lake from every room. You are intimately close to the 'Waters Edge' - so much so that the gentle lapping of the waves at the shoreline from your bedroom window will undoubtedly lull you to sleep each night. Last, the level yard allows you to spread out and enjoy family games of badminton, corn-hole, frisbee, etc. As soon as you step foot onto Waters Edge you'll immediately immerse yourself in "The Lake Life" at Seneca Lake.
