Overview

About the property

Year-round Rental on Seneca Lake Wine Trail, Finger Lakes, NY

Conveniently located in Hector, NY, on the east side of Seneca Lake. This beautifully renovated farmhouse cottage is bordered by vineyards owned by Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards. During warmer months, enjoy a glass of wine sitting on the large back deck while surrounded by cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc grape vines. Or sit on the wrap-around porch and enjoy the cool shade and wonderful breeze. For winter rentals, the house is fully insulated and heated with an electric fireplace for a cozy winter stay.

Inside you will find hardwood floors throughout the dining and living rooms, a newly renovated kitchen with gas range, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator with in-the-door ice and water. A few steps down from the kitchen is a cozy sunroom - perfect for morning coffee! The large full bathroom includes a washer and dryer for our guests' convenience. The second floor features two bedrooms with an incredible view of the vineyards and Seneca Lake from the master bedroom.

“Hector Vineyard Cottage” sleeps four to six persons – two in each bedroom, and two on the living room futon (with a comfy 10" queen-sized mattress!). A small cot is available if needed. Bedrooms feature two twin beds that can be set up as separate twins or put together as a king-size bed with a comfy king-size mattress pad - just let us know what you prefer!

Our key packet includes regional maps and winery tasting coupons. Other amenities: Clean linens (sheets, pillow cases, blankets, mattress pads) provided. Public water. Charcoal grill (don't forget your charcoal), dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, ironing board and iron. Basic paper products supplied. Basic satellite TV service, excellent cell coverage area.

Hector Wine Company is just across Route 414 – perfect for walking over to enjoy their weekend live music and a glass of wine on their patio. Kirton’s Farm Market is a short walk for fresh, local produce, jellies, flowers and homemade pork or chicken BBQ.

Some of Seneca Lake’s best-known wineries and restaurants are all within less than five miles from the cottage including Wagner Vineyards & the Ginny Lee Cafe, Hazlitt 1852 Vineyards, Leidenfrost Vineyards, Stonecat Cafe, Red Newt Wine Cellars & Bistro, Damiani Wine Cellars, Atwater Vineyards, Two Goats Brewing, and Finger Lakes Distilling. Enjoy wine tasting, live music and other “off-hour” events hosted by the wineries and restaurants.

Although we do not have lake access, Smith Memorial Park is just a mile away with a public boat launch, swimming beach, picnic facilities and a small playground. Lodi Point is about 10 minutes north, Clute Memorial Park is 10 minutes south, and Watkins Glen State Park is just 15-20 minutes away.

Why Jennifer L. Swain chose Seneca Lake

We fell in love with the Hector Vineyard Cottage because of its charm. With beautiful hardwood floors, a huge new deck overlooking the vineyards and its location to so many of our favorite wineries and restaurants, we knew right away it was a gem! There really is no better location on Seneca Lake!

So charming! Hope to visit again.

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly situated right in the middle of Seneca's wine trail, this little cottage was the perfect place for our family of four and our in-laws to stay. Jennifer was awesome to work with on arrangements & the house was wonderfully kept upon arrival. We sincerely hope to stay there again next season!

Charming cottage along the Seneca Wine Trail

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during Cornell University Commencement weekend May 2017. The cottage is charming and in a beautiful location. We didn't really have much time to spend here because of all the graduation activities. Drive into Ithaca was easy, about 35 minutes. the kitchen was well equipped, and having a washer and dryer was a big plus. I'd like to come back sometime to enjoy the area and visit some of the wineries.

Comfortable house with all the amenties centrally located to the wineries & breweries in Hector, NY

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable, accommodating 5 people without issue. The kitchen was stocked with dishes, pots and pans plus paper products. The back deck was private and very nice to enjoy the morning hours out of the sun. The house is located within a close proximity to a number of wineries and breweries. The owner, Jen, was very nice to deal with. We enjoyed our first visit to Lake Seneca and will definitely be returning. Would recommend this rental without question.

Very quaint. Perfect for a romantic getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed with a bottle of wine. It is very centrally located to many wineries, including one directly across the street. Occasionally we would hear some loud noises from the kitchen sink plumbing which could be expected with an older home. Overall very satisfied with out stay. We would be interested in returning when the weather is a little nicer.
