About the Property

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4 adults or 3 adults and 2 children

Our cozy cottage is right in the heart of wine country and overlooks Seneca Lake from the east side, so the sunsets are amazing and filled with spectacular colors. Set among summer cottages and homes in a rustic/country-style neighborhood, our property has 45 feet of lake frontage with a dock. Depending on the weather and day of the week, the atmosphere on this uncongested lake ranges from calm and peaceful to joyful and fun.

Our newly renovated cottage features a luxurious bathroom with a whirlpool tub, an open floor plan between the kitchen and living room, and a deck with a comfortable patio set and gas grill. There are two sliding glass doors that lead from the living room to the deck, which allow for nice lake views through the surrounding trees. Four adults or three adults and two children can sleep comfortably in this one bedroom cottage with a queen-size bed, a twin-size bed, and a full-size pullout couch.

The lakefront has a shaded area with a bonfire ring and picnic table, as well as a sunny dock. You can borrow the owner's 2 kayaks, peddle boat, and row boat, and extra chairs that are kept in the boat shed. There's something for everyone, including swimming, boating, kayaking, long walks along a dirt road through vineyards, fishing, and romantic evenings watching the sunset and drinking local wine.

Amenities:

- luxurious bathroom with whirlpool tub
- fully stocked kitchen with microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, cookware, and utensils
- satellite TV in living room
- high speed internet
- air conditioning
- clean linens provided
- clothes washer and dryer
- 45 feet of lake frontage

- the lakefront has a shaded area with a bonfire ring and picnic table, as well as a sunny dock. You can borrow the owner's 2 kayaks, peddle boat, and row boat, and use extra chairs that are kept in the boat shed
- access to the lake frontage from the yard is by way of a sturdy staircase or by a short road that goes around the neighborhood (about 1/4 mile to our frontage). The staircase has about 75 steps. The run for the steps is 11 inches, which is nice, and there are three decks with benches, in case anyone needs to rest or wants to see the view. It's also very handy to be able to drive down if you're carrying coolers, towels, etc., or are taking some small kids down all at once. The road is for limited use, especially on busy weekends, but it is there when you need it.

The surrounding area is incredibly dense with wineries overlooking the lake. You can have a great time touring the area and tasting wines. THERE ARE MORE THAN 10 WINERIES AND A BREWERY WITHIN A 10 MINUTE DRIVE, AND ONE WINERY WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE. The property is 15 minutes from Watkins Glen, home of the Watkins Glen International Race Track and the Watkins Glen Gorge. At the Glen Harbor Marina, take a ride on Captain Bill's Sightseeing Boat, the Seneca Legacy Dinnercruise Boat, or the Malibar/True Love Sailboat. Our cottage is also surrounded by the Finger Lakes National Forest, with hiking trails. You-pick fruit orchards and honor-system fruit and vegetable stands are available frequently during the summer and fall. Skyland Farm, a fine-craft gallery with items from 500+ artists and a feeding farm, is a must-see. The cuisine in the area is delicious with dining atmospheres ranging from casual to elegant. Many of the restaurants offer local, farm-fresh foods. Two miles across the lake, the Rainbow Cove Restaurant has slips for boats.

Here are some of the local events:
- Finger Lakes Wine Festival, July
- Nascar races at Watkins Glen International Racetrack, Watkins Glen, NY
- Lodi Bluegrass Festival, October, Lodi, NY

For those willing to drive a little farther, other attractions include the Museum of the Earth, which is 30 minutes away, and Ithaca, NY (a 50 minute drive), with many musical venues and a wide variety of international cuisine.
